Jon Huntsman – Manchurian Candidate to Washington President?

Former Ambassador to China and Utah Governor Jon Huntsman has been rarely talked about when it comes to contenders for the Republican Party Presidential nomination. Huntsman is often referred to as the other the moderate candidate, Huntsman’s disadvantage is because he has served his country abroad in a number of high-level government positions under both Republican and Democratic presidents. It also stems from the belief that his policies although conservative, are not as right leaning as those of most of his rivals.

While other candidates attack each other and news networks finding it fantastic for viewing figures, it is likely that most of the current field will be too badly damaged after the primary process to seriously challenge President Obama in the national election campaign. Huntsman has adopted a very shrewd approach highlighting other candidate’s weaknesses, but remaining focussed on policy and his own consistency up to this stage.

Mitt Romney is often referred to as the moderate candidate with Huntsman the other moderate candidate. Like Romney, Huntsman is a Mormon and some narrow minded people have tried to raise the religious issue in the race. My answer is simple, people didn’t want a Catholic in the White House not so long ago, and JFK managed to inspire a young nation and set in motion the ambition for NASA to get a man on the moon, not bad for a Catholic I say but moreover, what could a Mormon achieve? Should religion be a factor in this race, no, the only thing that should matter is someone’s ability to do the job and deliver. Huntsman has ample ability and like Bill Clinton, has a record of proven ability as governor, but also recognises the need for strong and effective diplomacy, to meet the world challenges facing us all.

So what is my case for Huntsman being able to mount a serious late surge and cause an upset? It is simple, he has policies which although may not be the extreme conservative stances most GOP supporters would wish for. Huntsman would appeal to both GOP supporters and independents in a general election and his appeal will only increase more, once his face recognition improves.

Huntsman as former governor of Utah possesses an excellent executive record built on cutting taxes, reducing waste and growing Utah’s economy. Utah weathered the economic storm and grew jobs while the rest of the country saw substantial job loss. He also has extensive foreign policy experience and is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and able to speak Taiwanese Hokkein. Huntsman also has executive job creative experience working for his family’s business expanding its operation globally.

Huntsman has been blunt in saying America currently faces an economic deficit and a trust deficit. He promises to create a manufacturing renaissance and encourage “Made in America” jobs. He promises to focus on reducing joblessness across America.

Huntsman also advocates raising the retirement age in order to reduce the government’s Social Security and Medicare obligations, change the formula by which cost-of-living adjustments are determined and reduce benefits for high-income individuals.

Huntsman wants to repeal President Barack Obama’s “unconstitutional and unaffordable” health care law. In terms of broad reforms, he wants to streamline the Food and Drug Administration’s approval process to make it less expensive for biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies to develop health care products.

On foreign policy, Huntsman calls for a withdrawal of United States troops from Afghanistan and says it “has evolved into an ill-advised counter-insurgency campaign which continues to carry heavy costs in terms of blood and treasure.” Huntsman supports the withdrawal of most U.S. troops from Iraq, but he opposes the planned withdrawal of all troops by December. “President Obama’s decision … to not leave a small, focused presence in Iraq is a mistake and the product of his administration’s failures.”

On the Iran issue Huntsman has been more measured but nonetheless firm saying he does not want Iran to get Nuclear weapon capability and is supportive of continuing efforts to make sanctions work. Huntsman has alluded to the real case scenario that if sanctions didn’t work then military action in conjunction with Israel would be the only option in the end: “My sense is that their ultimate aspiration is to become a nuclear power, in which case sanctions probably aren’t going to get you there. And that means likely, we’re going to have to have a conversation with Israel at some point.”

So why is Huntsman struggling in the polls, it is simple, face recognition. Most American’s outside of the state of Utah probably haven’t heard much about him, or even know what he looks like because of his overseas’s postings. Huntsman has based his efforts in New Hampshire for the early primaries making somewhere approaching on 120 stops throughout the state however; he still only gets 11 percent in the state polls.

What Huntsman needs to do is a better job at selling himself throughout the state and in the media. Three of his daughters have mounted an effective social media campaign which has probably done more for raising his profile then any marketing or communications consultant has up to this point.

Huntsman is currently struggling because he is the least known candidate domestically. If Huntsman can manage to find a way to sell himself more effectively and deliver a surprise result in New Hampshire, I believe he could be the one candidate who could take such momentum all the way across the finish line.

If I were a democratic strategist, Huntsman is the one candidate President Obama does not want to face in a General election. Bill Clinton defied expectations as a relatively unknown Arkansas governor to become one of the best modern American presidents in my opinion. I believe Huntsman is not as controversial as some of the other GOP candidates. He has the proven track record, is strong on policy and will not flip flop for the sake of gaining votes like Romney. The democrats would of had to vet him before appointing him to the most high profile Ambassadorial role that United States has China. Therefore, there cannot be too many, if any at all, hidden secrets to cause potential damage to him or his campaign.

Huntsman I believe would appeal republican, democratic and independent voters in an election and win their votes. Team Obama would not be able to run the negative campaign they want to run should Huntsman be the GOP nominee. Huntsman has an excellent record but more importantly, it would cripple their whole anticipated 2012 strategy and bring attention to President Obama’s economic and domestic record. The president can’t win on his record that is fact.

My tip, don’t bet against Huntsman going from the Manchurian Candidate, to Washington President.

 

 

 

The Return of the Newt – America must decide its course

The former speaker Newt Gingrich is a man with a brilliant mind, gone are the professor like lectures and long winded answers which characterised the “Old Newt” and instead, the voting public have witnessed the emergence of a razor like, disciplined politician who is very much in tune with the very real problems and challenges facing a great nation, that appears to be struggling for answers and very real leadership.

Gingrich has stuck to the 11th Commandment of Ronald Reagan from the outset, challenged the media bias and run his campaign with his sights set firmly on President Obama, his policies and his record.

Gingrich has showed in his debate performances that he can answer any question with a substance, authority and brilliance that no other candidate in the field has been able to manage thus far.

There are many who cite Gingrich’s personal indiscretions and past political dealings as the primary reasons why his challenge won’t last, but don’t under estimate the former Speaker, he is an experienced political bruiser who has seen all the criticism before. America has a choice, do they want a president who will lead from the front, get Washington and all branches of government working again for the people, a president who not only has belief in his own abilities, but more importantly, has the faith, confidence and trust in American ingenuity and know how.

The former Speaker has been open and honest about his indiscretions and to use the saying, “let him without sin cast the first stone”. Gingrich possesses the intellectual credentials, the solution driven Contract with America plan and above all, is not afraid to champion American exceptionalism.

President Obama yet again criticised American’s at the APEC summit in Hawaii at the weekend saying American’s are lazy. Never in my living memory can I recall, the President of the United States putting down his nation and his own people. It is shocking and a stark contrast to the ideologies and many achievements that made America great. America needs a president who will be a champion and leader to restore America to greatness and frankly, President Obama has shown he is incapable of being that badly needed leader.

The America that has emerged under the current incumbent’s stewardship is divided, lacking inspiration, confidence and above all, facing fiscal and structural breakdown under the rudderless and unaccountable administration. They believe using divisive language and finger pointing at everyone else is acceptable. America should expect more from their president’s and indeed shouldn’t attack each other. America’s strength has always been in its ability to unite and pull together in hard times, something this current president seems intent changing and putting beyond the point of no return.

Newt may not be everyone’s favourite person or politician but in a time of crises, American’s need to decide if they throw their support and weight behind a man who possesses five solutions or ideas on every issue compared to everybody else’s single idea? Washington is broken and the former Speaker has the talent and ability to bring all sides together in the American interest.

The election of 2012 in my view has one over riding issue, more important than party politics; it will truly be the election about the course and future of America as a nation and its place in the world.

Yes Speaker Gingrich has been a polarizing figure at times however, American’s can choose the leadership of President Obama who quite frankly, in my opinion, has failed to live up to his many promises and simply doesn’t command the respect personally or as the leader of the world’s greatest nation that any of his predecessor’s did. Alternatively, they can elect someone who at this turning point in history, can stir America back onto the course of greatness and revive the American spirit and confidence long admired the world over.

Newt may not be everyone’s first or ideal choice but we are in different times. America is very much viewed as a nation in decline here and around the globe. Many observers are dumbfounded at the rhetoric coming from the White House and perhaps most disappointingly of all, the much respected and historic Houses of Congress grinding to a working halt and appearing on the brink of imploding.

America needs a real change, it needs an experienced grandfather hand to calm the political and economic waters and get everyone working together again, to restore the true power and economic engine of a great nation.

American’s need someone with experience, international respect and knowledge of all the major issues and personnel around the globe to tackle the serious challenges coming its way. I admire great oration as much as the next person however, more important then even the most powerful rhetoric is substance.

Mitt Romney is also a wonderful candidate and I’m sure he’d do a great job if elected. In regards to the other candidates, their inexperience, lack of grasp of world affairs or in some cases like Rick Santorum, a lack of campaign money means they are unlikely to be able to breakthrough.

The 2012 election is about accountability and responsibility. American’s can go for the “Rock-star” like Obama machine which will have campaign funds like no other in history. Personally the president is a very likable man however, he is clearly out of his depth and anyone who chooses or claims otherwise, is simply in denial.

The alternative is to ignore personality and for American’s to seize possibly, the last chance they have to turn around is long term fortunes and its standing in the world. American’s need leadership and solution driven actions from their president.

Former Speaker Gingrich has the breath and depth of knowledge to meet the vast amount of challenges facing the ailing nation, he has the solutions and above all, he has the skills and leadership ability to get government back working for the American people to unleash the true potential of the great American nation.

If you want a non-flawed, inexperienced rhetoric master, Newt is not the candidate of first choice however, if American’s truly appreciate the full extent of the crossroads the nation, its economy and its people are about to reach, former speaker Gingrich can be last and only choice on the ballot.

If you haven’t done so yet, we at White House 2012 ask you to use this day as a good excuse for finally donating to the worthy Wounded Warrior Project.

Founded in 2003, WWP’s purpose is to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.

Always remember that the brave and selfless men and women who have defended our nation, its interests, and our freedom, and our way of life, have sacrificed much for us all. Now it is time for all of us to sacrifice just a little to thank, honor and help those Veterans who now need the help of others to rebuild their own lives.

President Obama a one term president?

According to the CNN Poll of Polls, which is an average of the most recent national surveys, 45 percent of Americans approve of how the president is handling his job and 51% disapprove, a short term boost largely attributed to the recent success in Libya. 

It is now 364 days until perhaps the most economically important presidential election in generations both nationally and internationally. The president has already raised more money than all his GOP rivals combined. Obama hopes to raise nearly $1 billion for his 2012 re-election bid. There is no doubt, President Obama has enjoyed considerable success in the war on terror and in his pledges to drawn down American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan which many, believe to be politically motivated, rather than a matter of military decision making.

How would I rate President Obama’s re-election chances? I still see it as very much a 50-50 chance for the following reasons; while people may disapprove of his administration in many areas, President Obama is still personally very popular, especially among minority groups who are expected to have a big influence on the outcome in 2012. He will have considerable funds and the support of the liberal media on his side, which, cannot be under estimated and above all, it is the ability of the GOP to unite behind a credible and strong candidate that will ultimately have the biggest influence on the outcome in 2012. Don’t under estimate President Obama’s campaigning ability and rhetorical skills, he will prove an extremely determined competitor, and if his manages to get people to remember why they liked and voted for him in 2008, it will be difficult for any GOP contender to beat him.

President Obama following his many recent travels appears determined not to concede key swing states like North Carolina, Indiana, Virginia, Florida, Colorado and New Mexico.  A year is an extremely long time in American politics, and things could change the odds in President Obama’s favour.  Economic growth could exceed expectations, and the unemployment rate could start to turn on a downward trajectory restoring some of the much shattered economic confidence in American households. My own personal belief is that the current administration seem incapable of making the fundamental policy shift in curbing spending and lowering taxes, to really deliver a boost to economic growth and this has only been further solidified by Democratic support for the Occupy Wall Street protests of recent weeks, and the attacks on the entrepreneurial spirit which has made America a great nation for the last century.

James Carville the famous and respected Democratic strategist coined the phrase, “It the Economy stupid” when former President Clinton was running against former President Bush Snr. amazingly, President Bush Snr. enjoyed an astounding approval rating of 89% just over a year before the election and went on to lose. In this coming election the phrase for the GOP should be, “It’s Jobs stupid.” A record number of Americans, 49.1 million are poor, based on a new census measure that for the first time takes into account rising medical costs and other expenses. External debt now stands as % of GDP at an incredible 101.1% and unemployment is at 9%, higher then even the biggest sceptic believed it would be following the stimulus plan. Unfortunately, President Obama’s economic team have only created uncertainty surrounding healthcare costs, tax and regulation over the last three years, these three factors alone are the biggest reasons why job growth in American has come to a standstill practically.

A Washington Post/ ABC polling today showed only 38% of American’s approved of President Obama’s handling of the economy against a disapproval rating of 61%. The reality is, if people took out President Obama’s personal appeal and focussed on his job performance and implemented policies during the first two years of his administration, the outcome of next years election would be a foregone conclusion with a GOP landslide. However, this election is going to be unlike any other. Personally, I believe substantively only Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich really have the experience, credentials and ability to beat President Obama in a head to head with the exception of Ron Paul who may benefit from a failure by the international community to resolve the debt crisis. It is important that the GOP nominee sells the message that they are the person capable of restoring America’s economic prospects and focus on facts.

The strategy to an Obama victory seems set to be played out in the Midwest states where President Obama still enjoys popular support and on portraying an “Under Dog” tag. The Democratic Party machine will unleash the fiercest and most personal attack campaign American electioneering history has witnessed. The president has already tried to use class divide and emotional scare tactics to frighten voters into supporting him, the one fact which cannot escape President Obama is his record.

Don’t believe the “Under Dog” status, President Obama will be the best supported and financed “Under Dog” in political history. The choice for American’s like previous elections, “Are you better now then you were four years ago come November 6, 2012”.

The eventual GOP nominee will need to focus on President Obama’s record, which is partly why, I believe Speaker Gingrich may be the best bet for the GOP nomination due to his factual, precise and eloquent communication skills. It promises to be the mother of all contests that is for sure.

The Cain-Gingrich debates should be welcomed not undermined

Bookmark and Share  We learned in recent days that Texas Governor Rick Perry is to skip some of the up and coming Republican Party debates, citing a busy campaign schedule. Of course, this excuse and Perry’s decision to suggest he may be pulling out of future debates, has basically taken the momentum out of his tax plan announcement earlier in the week.

Perry’s debate performances have been far from convincing and rather then try and run away from them, he should’ve been embracing the debates. Perry’s decision will lead to suggestions that he can’t handle the spotlight on the national stage and ultimately, if he can’t take the pressure in the primaries, he has no chance of beating President Obama in head to head debates in any general election race. It is a poor decision by Team Perry and despite his massive war chest; it is another bad mistake in a campaign that promised so much at the outset.

In stark contrast, we have former Speaker Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain embracing debates, in what I believe will be truly outstanding nights, for any potential audience member. These two men are not afraid to talk about the issues, which I believe is the primary reason for their strong showing in the polls. They have abided by the Republican 11th Commandment mantra of former President Reagan; thou shall not attack a fellow Republican. Perry has spent so much time attacking Mitt Romney and in turn, Romney has been dragged into a number of retorts, resulting in both men’s campaigns suffering.

What I love about the idea of the Gingrich-Cain debates is that they promise, they will follow in the tradition of the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates, prior to the American Civil War. If you haven’t taken the time to read these debates and seen for yourself, what brilliant orators these men were, then my suggestion is make the time.

People have already criticised that cost of admission to these debates, well I say firstly, the cost is largely due to the fact that they will not be televised at the time of writing. Secondly, is the cost justified? Of course, here are two men taking historic steps towards the highest office in the land and they are prepared to lay out their ideas and solutions to the very real problems America faces both domestically and abroad. If I could get a ticket, I’d be on a plane to Houston, Texas, for November 5 absolutely. I don’t see how people can complain about tickets starting at $200 upwards when elsewhere, people are being charged $38,500 just to have dinner, and it strikes loudly of double standards.

I think both men have come to symbolise where the 2012 race will be won or lost, as a candidate, do you have the ideas, solutions and ability to address America’s very real and urgent problems. I don’t expect any person in this modern world to be without fault however, what I do expect is someone to recognise what the issues and problems are, and be prepared to offer solutions and not afraid to discuss them.

Both Speaker Gingrich and Mr. Cain have both spoken about every issue put in front of them more then any other candidate perhaps, this is why people are listening to them and starting to take notice. They don’t want the usual rehearsed and scripted answers which is put forward by other candidates; they want honest, simple, straight forward plain speaking on the following basis, “This is what I will do as president.”

The Cain–Gingrich debates will focus on steps to rein in government spending and fix Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. These issues will be at the very core of the challenges the next administration faces because like it or not, they need to be addressed and reformed to ensure their very survival and bring America’s bulging National debt under control. Cain & Gingrich unlike all the other candidates are prepared, to charge into a debate on these issues because, there seems a transparent unwillingness and reluctance, Rep. Paul Ryan aside, to face or even discuss the inevitable. It is a very brave move and both men have proved themselves eloquent speakers.

The debates on television are set-up for good ratings, not for good substantive answers and a crowded field does not assist in this respect either at present. I congratulate both men for being prepared to step into a longer substantive debate and put the meat on the bones so to speak, what I mean is enable those present, be it media or general public, to learn more about what they are proposing on some very controversial areas.

Their will be many detractors who will try and attack this bold move by two candidates trying to mount a serious challenge for the GOP nomination. I think it is a fantastic idea and rather then have their campaign teams and advisors trying to protect their every step, they are setting a bold and I believe very welcome step for future presidential races. Voters are entitled to know what their candidate really has to say on the issues in substantive form, not a masterfully crafted and marketed candidate who is sold to them through the media.

These are serious times for serious candidates, if these men are prepared to rise to the challenge and openly discuss real ideas and real solutions, I say bring it on. It is something that should be encouraged not undermined. If both men have the right solutions by adopting and embracing this format and educating the voters, they will have earned the right to win the party nomination come 2012.

I always say, I admire substance over style ever time. Well done to both men.  Bookmark and Share

Rick Santorum, “Floored” by Herman Cain’s Abortion Position

Bookmark and Share  As stated in a previous White House 2012 post, Herman Cain was going to take some heat for his Peirs Morgan interview in which he stated that he opposes abortion under all circumstances and then seemingly contradicted himself by saying that abortion is a persoanl choice to be made by families.

Well now Senator Rick Santorum has jumped on Cain for his remarks with the following email:

Anthony

       Probably like me, you were absolutely floored by what Herman Cain said on CNN last night.

      After acknowledging that he believes life begins at conception, Herman Cain went on to say it’s up to the individual to decide whether or not to kill an innocent unborn child. That means that while he believes it is a life, he doesn’t consider it a life worth fighting for. As the author of the legislation that banned partial birth abortions forever, I am stunned that someone running for the Republican nomination for president would have this position.

        In fact, Herman Cain’s pro-choice position is similar to those held by John Kerry, Barack Obama and many others on the liberal left. You cannot be both personally against abortion while condoning it – you can’t have it both ways. We must defend the defenseless, period.

         We can disagree about tax policy. We can disagree about government regulations. Those are fair issues to debate. But we must all stand unified in defense of the defenseless unborn.

         If you stand with me in defense of life, please make an immediate contribution of $25 to my campaign so I can continue  stand up for the unborn.

         Fighting For America,

The CNN Las Vegas Debate – A Bad night for Republican supporter’s

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich summed up Tuesday nights’ GOP debate best when he stated,” Maximizing bickering is probably not the best way to the White House.” The Former Speaker was right, there were better dust ups in last night’s GOP debate, then in any boxing match held in Las Vegas for months.

The sharpest exchanges were between, Texas Governor Rick Perry who accused former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney of lying about hiring illegal immigrants. Romney countered calling Perry effectively, an Al Gore Democrat in Texas when George Bush was running and accused him of creating one-third of all jobs in Texas for illegal immigrants. Romney did come under fire from a number of the candidates again throughout the evening, but still managed to come out looking the most presidential at the end of the debate, but perhaps, a little more rattled then in previous debates.

Herman Cain got attacked by Perry, Santorum and Bachmann over his 9-9-9 plan with all three calling it a value added tax and saying the people of New Hampshire won’t want to pay another 9 percent sales tax on their goods. Cain did well in defending it using the apples and oranges analogy. Cain did get tripped up by moderator Anderson Cooper over comments he made earlier in the evening regarding negotiating with terrorists and didn’t really manage to convince people on his position.

Texas Governor Perry put in a much more assertive performance on the night overall. I think it is fair to say that he will never be an outstanding debater, but he did rattle Governor Romney a number of times, especially when questioning his record on jobs as Massachusetts governor, and said it did not compare to his accomplishments in Texas. The two men, standing side by side in the middle of the set, frequently interrupted each other in what became an increasingly bitter exchange as the night went on, Romney even calling for the rules to be abided by at one point. Perry managed to put forward his achievements as Texas Governor much better then is previous debates.

I thought Ron Paul had a much better debate this time out, then previous debates. I may not agree with his view on every issue, but his is absolutely historically and factually correct about all big empire’s greatness coming to an end by their sheer size and financial cost of maintaining their empire. The 900 or so U.S. bases in over 150 countries are financially unsustainable and Rep.Paul is quite correct in his assertion. He played to his base and supporters well last night and his performance was energised compared to previous debates.

Rep. Bachmann tried her level best to make an impact in the debate however, her every effort now has the news impact equivalent of watching a BBC 24 News Channel show, it sounds the same every time and simply doesn’t change. It is full of sound bites and she’s used them all before too often. A geography note for future debates, Libya is in Africa! Rep. Bachmann is quick to attack other candidates on their plans and proposals but simply doesn’t sound convincing in selling her own or putting forward solutions for the nation’s current problems. People need to hear more then President Obama will be a one term president as a way of intending to run a country. Unfortunate, I do believe Rep. Bachmann has lots of potential but she simply hasn’t evolved as a candidate since her early burst.

I did Like Senator Santorum’s performance again last night, he gave the most substantive answer in defending Governor Romney and the attack on his religion and managed to explain his own valued stance and why the Latino population are important in American society because they understand the importance of family and want the American Dream. Santorum has performed well in all the debates and should be proud of his efforts to date.

Speaker Gingrich as ever delivered confident, assured and factual answers but again struggled to get air time among as he framed it, all the “Bickering.” I would love to see him engage President Obama in Douglas-Lincoln style debates, although I suspect, even in the unlikely eventuality of Gingrich winning the nomination, I very much doubt President Obama would want to engage Gingrich in debates as he simply wouldn’t stand a chance in them.

Overall, the debate highlighted some serious concerns with the Republican field. The mess that has ensued over the primary season following Florida’s decision to move its primary forward, has only served to create more problems then it solves. It doesn’t lend any advantage to the eventual Republican nominee, going up against President Obama next year in the election which above all, should be the priority.

If last nights’ debate is anything to go by, the Republican Party need to seriously look beyond personal loyalty and start looking at who can actually beat President Obama in 2012. The only true winner from last nights’ debate was President Obama.

If the Republican candidates keep tearing strips off each other like they did last night, they will have done all the undermining and character assassination of each other necessary, to convince the electorate to vote for President Obama over the eventual nominee regardless by the time they choose him or her.

Personally, I think the Republicans need to ask themselves what they want more. Do they pick a candidate in 2012, which represents their traditional conservative party values but will most likely lose to President Obama in 2012? Or do they go with a moderate like Romney or a Gingrich substantive conservative who can beat President Obama on substance in a general election? I know people may not like the fact I’ve said this, however, this in my view is the harsh reality.

The fact is you cannot make a difference to how the country is being run, if you are not in power. The Republican Party may have to concede on one or two areas of their traditional foundation in electing their eventual nominee this time around. The choice is simply this, would they prefer to take back the White House in 2012 and work with a Republican President, or put forward a candidate who cannot beat President Obama and stay in opposition for another four years?

Looking at last nights’ debate, time is running out for the Republican Party to adopt Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandant and move forward the discussion on issues in an informative and open manner, instead of attacking each other. If they continue attacking each other, they may as well hand the election to President Obama, a disappointing night from a Republican perspective.

Verdict: Victory to Team Obama
