Huntsman Sr. told Alan what happened to Jon Huntsman Jr.’s run for the Presidency and if he plans to run again, why Huntsman Sr. donates to both Democrats and Republicans, and why he feels that the right-wing has completely taken over the Republican party. And does he think that Democrats care more about fighting cancer than Republicans? Check out the highlights below:
COLMES: Your son, Jon Jr., as I was telling you off the air, was one of the saner Republicans running for President and liked by a lot of people on my side of the plate.
HUNTSMAN SR.: Well you know when he ran for governor the 2nd time, Governor of Utah, he pulled in almost 80% of the Democratic vote and about 84% of the Republican and he was #1 in job creation and #1 with the flat tax. He was a conservative. You know Alan, we have to get along, we have to work, we have to communicate. I spent several years with the Nixon administration, and one of the things I did respect about President Nixon was we did communicate, we did have relations with both parties and it’s very essential we continue to do that. And in America today, unfortunately, the right wing has been totally commandeered by the Tea party and it’s a bad thing for our party.
COLMES: Do you think that Jon Jr. would like to run again for President?
HUNTSMAN SR.: Well, I think he probably would like to run again. I don’t think he ever will. I think the Republican party has been hijacked over to the right so far.
COLMES: Maybe it takes someone like him to take it back?
HUNTSMAN SR. : We you know, I think that 2020 could be an interesting year for the Republicans because after so many losses and so many heartaches by these folks who have completely captivated the party, they may have 10, or 15 or 20 percent of the vote but they’re never going to win much.
HUNTSMAN SR.: I’m the only one in America who belongs to the “Cure Cancer” party, so if you give money to cancer, like Harry Reid and Max Baucus, some of these guys really helped us raise big money for cancer, I give them big money for their reelections. And I told Orrin Hatch, and a number of Senators, “Listen you help me with cancer, I’ll help you with our reelection,” but I’m a one issue man and I love to see our political leaders help us with things like cancer and very few right wing people do that.
COLMES: I didn’t know that fighting cancer was a left wing mission, and it would really fall on one side of the plate or the other.
HUNTSMAN SR.: I think you would be surprised Alan, as I know most of the Senators, I go back and forth and we don’t get much money anymore from the government, most of it’s private funding or family funding, but I found Democrats much more sensitive to the needs of the downtrodden and particularly those with cancer.
Junior I guess this means deadpainting is going to retire this id, LOL funny he takes your id, turns it into an insult and then claims we are full of hate, poor little baby (killer)
I'm with you on this one wonka, all those soldiers can just say they won't go right? I mean no draft means soldiers get to decide if they will or will not obey orders right? You have such a strong grasp of the military.
LOL what a moron
bet that dad was glad he had a gun around to protect his family, LOL tea billies and gun nuts, American sewer #$%$
TOMS RIVER — A Toms River man whose 4-year-old son accidentally shot and killed his 6-year-old friend with an unsecured gun admitted Thursday to child endangerment for not keeping the weapon properly locked.
Anthony Senatore, 35, faces three years in prison and will have to surrender his weapons that authorities said were accessible along with ammunition to the children, said Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain.
Senatore pleaded guilty before Superior Court Judge Wendel E. Daniels to two counts of endangering the welfare of children relating to the fatal shooting of Brandon Holt on April 8, 2013. Brandon and Senatore’s 4-year-old son were playing in the Senatores’ McCormick Drive home when the younger boy got access to his father’s .22-caliber rifle in his parents’ bedroom.
Think things would have been worse if the GOP instead of block extension of the two percent payroll tax had allowed Obama to raise taxes on the rich? Still working on that trickle down thing, has it reached your shoe yet?
sounds like you support more tax cuts for us rich folks, please focus on the DEATH TAX and make me a few million more, thanks for your support, I'll trickle down on you later
I'm not threatened by homosexuals unlike you deadpainting, know why you are?
One theory is that homosexual urges, when repressed out of shame or fear, can be expressed as homophobia. Freud famously called this process a “reaction formation” — the angry battle against the outward symbol of feelings that are inwardly being stifled. Even Mr. Haggard seemed to endorse this idea when, apologizing after his scandal for his anti-gay rhetoric, he said, “I think I was partially so vehement because of my own war.”
It’s a compelling theory — and now there is scientific reason to believe it. In this month’s issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, we and our fellow researchers provide empirical evidence that homophobia results from the suppression of same-sex desire.
Our paper describes six studies conducted in the United States and Germany involving 784 university students. Participants rated their sexual orientation on a 10-point scale, ranging from gay to straight. Then they took a computer-administered test designed to measure their implicit sexual orientation. In the test, the participants were shown images and words indicative of hetero- and homosexuality (pictures of same-sex and straight couples, words like “homosexual” and “gay”) and were asked to sort them into the appropriate category, gay or straight, as quickly as possible. The computer measured their reaction times.
All you repressed homosexuals that act out as homophobic should take heart, you don't need to be ashamed and lash out anymore, it's God's blessing, LOL
One veteran on disability collected nearly $210,000 in benefits in 2013, while another earned more than $122,000 — nearly three times what his actual military pay would have been — according to a watchdog report being released Thursday that found tens of thousands of veterans are triple-dipping on disability.
Tens of thousands of veterans collect their military retirement pay and disability benefits from the Veterans Administration and disability checks from Social Security too, according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office. All told, nearly 60,000 triple dippers collected $3.5 billion in benefits.

Wow 3.5 billion for triple dippers but we can't afford to fund the 88 million for Ebola protection, LOL
The “friendly fire” airstrike that killed five American soldiers in Afghanistan on June 9 is the first known case of a battlefield catastrophe that can be linked to automatic defense spending cuts that greatly curtailed prewar training.
