For those just taking notice of the presidential election, the headlines should currently read “Jon Huntsman and President Obama in vigorous yet civic debate on ideas.” See, the GOP selected Governor Romney out of a cast of characters and the least amount of interest went to the former Governor of Utah Jon Huntman, a man President Obama appointed Ambassador to China.
Team Obama had the foresight to embrace Huntsman because that sullied him with the conservative movement. Chicago knew that Huntsman was a candidate who could win the political center.
Chicago and wherever Romney is based has also decided that the election will be won in a few swing states. Horse feathers! If most of the south is off the table, the state and local organizational structure isn’t active on the Democrat side. To me the Red Team is a small, well organized army with weak generals while the Blue Team is a large, unorganized team with better generals.
Despite the wisdom of Fox News and MSNBC, Georgia can be won by the Democrats. The untapped potential for Dems might be motivated the ugliness of the GOP primary–”let’s go to the video tape.” So, people need to stop this “call your cousins in Florida and North Carolina” talk. If the people Democrats care about actually voted, the election would be over. The election might be over if Team Romney doesn’t start producing some plans and ideas. Romney looks like presidential material; while Obama and Huntsman are presidential material.
The sweet thing about blogging is that it serves as a record of who wrote what and when it was written. My friends in the conservative movement know that Michael Steele, Jon Huntsman and I have been begging them to create a moderate wing of their team. But, they let the crazy 15% drive their bus…off the cliff.
I declare Georgia to be on the table and Romney, a decent fellow, should explain why he doesn’t say anything when the far Right zany talk starts. Also, I don’t give a dizz-am about party once a candidate wins an election. If the people are paying your salary, you should visit, listen and explain in every community. It’s called “forming a more perfect union.”
