Even Republicans Who Endorse Mitt Romney Don’t Think He Can Beat Obama

Jon Huntsman is about to become the latest Republican to endorse Mitt Romney who doesn’t think he can defeat Obama

Here is the video of Huntsman on CNBC:

On The Kudlow Report last Monday, Huntsman declared Romney completely unelectable after the GOP frontrunner said that he liked to fire people. Huntsman also shared his opinion that Romney would get chewed up by the Obama campaign, “Words and statements matter . . . when you are in a heated campaign. I just want to make sure we can get somebody who can go up against Barack Obama and not be chewed up by the political machine that’s going to have a billion dollars to spend on it…In order for someone to beat Barack Obama this year, they’re going to actually have to convince people who supported Barack Obama last time to support them. If you can’t come out of New Hampshire or any other primary state with the Republicans and also a whole lot of independents, than we’re not going to have an electable candidate at the end of the exercise.”

Jon Huntsman was arguing for his own candidacy at the time, but his candid remarks offered a great deal of insight into just how little faith Republicans have that Romney can beat Obama. Huntsman is about to go from telling the world that Romney can’t beat Obama to endorsing him. It would be one thing for Huntsman to be questioning Romney’s electability in the midst of heated primary campaign or at the end of a long primary cycle, but the former Utah governor made these remarks before the second contest on the calendar.

Jon Huntsman really believes that Romney can’t beat President Obama, which means that sometime this week he is going to have to share a stage with Romney and lie through his teeth about the GOP frontrunner’s electability.

The never was GOP contender turned insincere Romney endorser is not the only one with big doubts about Mittens. There is a noticeable lack of enthusiasm surrounding Mitt Romney’s candidacy. The Internet is not buzzing with pro-Romney chatter. A recent Gallup poll found that GOP enthusiasm is on the decline. Republicans and Democrats are almost even as we head into 2012.

The 2012 election is turning into a carbon copy of 2008, which looked an awful lot like 1996. Republicans are lining up behind Mitt Romney because good party soldiers always get with the program. The truth is that Huntsman is just like every other Republican. The GOP seems to be coming to the realization that they have to nominate somebody, so it might as well be Mitt Romney.

However, nothing is more telling than the fact that Mitt Romney’s next big endorsement will come from someone who doesn’t think he can win. A never was endorsing a never will be is a fitting description for the freak circus that has been the race for the Republican nomination.

  1. Think of how much money these fools could save, by just having them drop out and concede to Obama. I would greatly appreciate it, I am bored with this circus of clowns, they repeat nothing, over and over, they are funny in a pathetic way, and none of the, have a plan to solve the problems we face either.

    I believe the GOP is out to BORE us to death…and it’s working.

  2. They put up a fight to stonewall everything Obama has sent to Congress, but they can’t support a strong candidate??????

    Don’t be shocked they pick someone behind closed doors.

  3. Huntsman wanted to right size the banks? The very thing the GOP hates Obama for wanting to do? Goodness.

    Everyone is for the free market. Dems are not for free market corruption which separates them from the conservatives and their free market at any cost meme.

    Huntsman was a far better choice than Mittens. But the conservatives have went off the rails egged on by Ron Paul and the Grinch.

  4. As far as I’m concerned, the Republican chickens are coming home to roost. For years, the GOP has been about winning at any cost even to the point of degenerating into outright craziness. They have embraced anti-intellectualism, xenophobia, religious bigotry, misogyny, and even racism. For these reasons, they have been unable to attract candidates of quality, and in addition, they are only focused on defeating this president so their overlords can continue their raping of our economy.

  5. There is one thing worse that a loss by a blowout, and that is one in which the over side decides to forfeit the field, thus explaining the ‘quality’ of the candidates the GOP has presented. The Obama hate is very real, but hate can’t vote, people do. And there are more folks out there who WILL vote for Obama than the nominated GOP candidate.
    You don’t need a crystal ball to predict the outcome to this. The GOP candidate to go against Obama will be motivated not by some higher purpose but by simple PAYBACK. They want to smite Barack sooo bad the stench of their rage has permeated their debates and clouded their judgement. True, hatred is a great motivator to get your team up and out of the trenches but it doesn’t guarantee a win. A single clear mind will always hold their own over a dozen clouded ones.
