Huntsman woos New Hampshire moderates

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - On a breezy evening in August, Jon Huntsman walked into a house party filled with undecided New Hampshire voters and started shaking hands.

Across from the table of hors d'oeuvres, State Rep Joanne Ward, R-Stratham, noticed something was off. And when the GOP presidential candidate made his way to her, she chided him on it.

    Do either of them really know what the President is doing? After the blackmailing/ hostag terrorist attack of the teabaggers in the last eight months anyone who still thinks that the rethug/teatards have the best interest of the country and what thesebpeople seemed like, the midlee class, there is onky one conclusion YOU ARE TOO STUPID TO VOTE OR THINK!!

    "I want to know why when you came in you went to the left, instead of the right," she said, laughing. "I strategically said, he's going to start to the right."

    What an unbelievably childish mindset GOPers have. In his own effort to appease the foolish, Hunstman has himself become a sad disapointment. His whichever way the wind is blowing is good enough for him approach leaves much to be desired in a presidential hopeful. Especially from one who is as little known nationally as he is. Not sure even HE knows where he stands on the issues.

    His religious preference is his albatross.

    "I want to know why when you came in you went to the left, instead of the right," she said, laughing. "I strategically said, he's going to start to the right."

    What an unbelieavably childish mindset GOPers have. With his continual whichever way the wind is blowing is good enough for me approach, and his willingness to follow that wind in an effort to appease the most foolish, Huntsman is fast proving himself a huge disappointment. Changes are someone as uncommitted to any actual political agenda as he protrays himself as being by jumping from one bandwagon to the next, probably doesn't know what his true agenda is one way or the other.

    I don't think they like the Ambassador up there as much as some other candidates. NH is a hot bed for Tea Party.
