    It was former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman’s struggling presidential campaign that fed the rumors to the press that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain had been accused of harassment by multiple women during his business career — a story that ultimately led to Cain’s departure from the contest — a new book reveals.

    You pretty much have to be a cannibal to be in politics...nobody is there to help you and doing the right thing instead of "what helps me" does not happen, everybody that wants to "help" someone get into office is only there to get something for themselves should that person win, the greater good does not matter anymore.

    Now, you know that we are not supposed to be talking about Jon Huntsman. Next you will be telling me that Huntsman has played the spoiler in several different directions at once. And let's not mention that Huntsman and Romney were actually once competing against each other in who got to save the winter Olympics in Utah. And there is no connection with Glenn Beck either. Glenn had something to do with bringing down Debra Medina when she was running for Texas Governor. Even though she had won the debates, one interview with Glenn and it was over. And a few months after that Glenn Beck was off Fox News. Replaced with Judge Nepalitano on Fox Business and even though it was the most popular show on the new network, Freedomwatch was cancelled shortly after the Judge started talking about the Constitution.

    So, any candidate who is a Mormon is going to have Huntsman included....just like any GOP candidate is going to have Karl Rove attached to them....No matter how many elections Rove has stuck his oar in and sunk the boat as a result, Republicans keep getting subjected to this ass even though the GOP has lost the last two elections after a Rove endorsement. You might get the idea that Rove is running the Republican Media just like Huntsman is running the Mormon political machine!

    And they say politics makes strange bedfellows.

    There was a time when leadership and selfless were synonyms. Politics is where the best looking parasites go to gather together when the meat is the freshest after the kill. Once the dead body has reached a certain level of putridity, it is time to find a fresher host to exist off of for a season. This is why we get alternating party members in the Whitehouse. They may be from the same parasitical class of human but we alternate between two species of the same purpose because we get tired of giving our flesh to the same group. So, we replace Jaun McCain with Nanci Pelosi, Harry Reid with Lindsay Grahamn. All have nothing to offer the American but excuses and blame.

    To the victor goes the spoils. To the victim go the spoilers.

    Magoo, here is what you have to understand about Republicans...they are not all conservative. I know I keep going back to JFK and forgive me for doing it again but the Democrat JFK would be considered more conservative than the modern Republican. So we have those who remain nameless in the GOP who are far worse for the GOP than say a Harry Reid because they claim to be members of the GOP and they are. But they are not conservative. These people like Hon Juntsman (SP) are not only not good for the GOP but are in many ways just as bad for the Democrats because they lower the level of representation for ALL OF US.

    Ya gotta understand that we are being played against each other and as this is happening, we are all losing our liberties together at the same time, both D and R. This is not good for anyone and this is why Americans should never follow any human because they are all human and are corruptible as humans. This guy Jon is like Rahm Emanuel who has duel citizenship in the US and Israel at the same time. He used to crack his knuckles in Obama's ears even though he was asked not to....always letting Obama know who was boss. Both parties have their operatives, and just because an Obama or Mitt is the most visible doesn't mean they are in control. We the people, the very foundation of what the Democrat party is supposed to be founded on are losing any voice we have left to the Washington Lobbyist. They have replaced us. This is why every Democrat in the country listened (because Obama said exactly what needed to be done) when Obama promised that he would have no lobbyist in his cabinet. Once elected, his cabinet was filled with Lobbyists and this may not even have been his choice!

    This is one of the reasons I hate it when you go off on an Obama cheer leading session. No one should have that much admiration. It is not good for any human to get the idea that they answer to no one. Ain't none of us perfect and Obama is one of us, he is human. This is why he now has to back peddle on his ACA promise because all politicians lie even if they believe their own BS. Usually because they are controlled by someone else

    Find me an honest Washington politician and I will show you a politician that will be dead in a few weeks. Our political system will no longer tolerate honest people with real vision. They want a static system that will continue to keep the voter in control. We are what can change things, but not if we can't admit when our own party members work against us.

    I'm surprised. Didn't know Huntsman's guys were that competent. I blamed Romney for taking out Cain- because Cain was the Only Repub who could've won.....

    We also have Karl Rove in tandem with the "Romney is the only one." movement. When the most liberal is the only one GOP member that can win? Something is up.

    That and the fact that they just handed the media something to run with. Rove who seems to be on Hannity every other day.

    Rove's 'American Crossroads' PAC worked against Cucinelli in VA. Its backing Jeb Bush in 2016. The Tea Party Leaders have targeted 87 GOP surrenderers for Primary Elections in 2014. Defund the GOP- give to Freedomworks! Rove won't like this......

    And what will happen is the conservative GOP member will be gone leaving the DNC to put in candidate they wish with little or no resistance. Rove and Co. is exactly what Liberals need to continue to gain control of America and Rove will have had a huge part of accomplishing this.

    We are down to single party politics with two factions. There might be a small minority in the GOP that oppose it and the GOP is doing all they can to rid themselves of this minority. Republicans have only themselves to blame as they continue to "Out Liberal" their opposition.

    Mark Levin challenged the Tea Party tonite on his show to let the 'Republican Wing of the Democrat Party' (the GOP) know that the Tea Party isn't going anywhere! Basically, he said 'We either take the Repub Party over, or sink it', since it's doing nothing to solve the nation's ills, it is just assisting the Dems in creating ever more.....

    He "goes off" like this because he knows he doesn't have another shot for a while.. Especially when things were going good until Wild Bill let them bomb the WTC... He's still pissed that Gore didn't win...
