Jon Huntsman to Join "No Labels" Gang of Two

So it'll be him and Michael Bloomberg. I'm sure there are a couple more but they escape me at the moment.

“Too many people in Washington believe that leading consists of imposing their will on the opposition. It is true of both parties,” Huntsman, a Republican, said during a conference call organized by the group No Labels. “This all or nothing leadership is an attitude that may work on military battlefields or in competitive business markets … but it’s a recipe for dysfunction in democratic politics.”

Quick, can anyone name a Democrat who's joined No Labels?

I was listening to the news yesterday and I heard Harry Reid urging people to shed their ideological and partisan straightjackets and seek a statesmanlike compromise all for the good of the nation. Yes, Harry Reid, the one who said he would never, ever compromise with a President Romney on anything; Harry Reid, who is a leader of the No Reform caucus in the Democratic Party.

Incidentally, his call for "compromise" involved simply passing the Democrats' preferred solution on debt and spending -- tax hikes for the rich, no spending cuts.

The press just reports this without comment. Harry Reid? The most partisan hack in the Senate? That's the guy calling for compromise and putting party aside?

Isn't it terribly strange that Harry Reid is considered by the press to be non-partisan while any Republican pushing a conservative policy preference is an ultra-ideologue?

Meanwhile, Salon Magazine (WHO?) urges no compromise and suggests instead taking us over the "mythical" fiscal cliff.

I’m writing a review of it right now, and am quoting from http://minx.cc/?post=335126 to emphasize Goldberg’s comment similar to your “ If you tell someone who's not an alcoholic that he's drinking too much, he'll take an interest in your statement” and was wondering if it’s just incredibly obvious or if you were building off of Goldberg (or others).

Do. Not. Compromise.

The Republicans should either get what they want or give Obama what he wants.

Since the Republicans cannot get what they want, they should give Obama what he wants.

With two conditions: It is to be called the Obama Tax Hikes and it comes with an expiration date.

In one year the people will see if Obama's way works. It won't. And that'll be the end to blaming Bush and the Republicans.

Yeah yeah I know: they'll still blame Bush!!

Yes, but this time only 45% of the people will believe it instead of 51%.

He like Romney and McCain is a legacy/convenient Republican. The only way to be elected in Utah is as a Republican so thats what he is. Compare that to romney who ran as a repubtard in the bluest of states. Also every achievement this guy has on his résumé is a direct result of his daddy's money. Ambassador, governor, think tank guy. All bought and paid for by daddy. I loved when Messina said they were scared if him. How? In what fucking universe? All that shit they threw at Romney. This guy ACTUALLY IS!

Is Huntsman suggesting that the elected representatives cave on the very issues they ran on that we sent them there for?
Isn't that like saying "listen populace, we lied to you, you don't know what's good for you but we do."

If the American people wanted compromise why did they send a group back to office that has yet to do it?

and how do you compromise when the two parties are operating on totally different assumptions? I watched an old interview of Richard Mourdock (I know) back when he beat Lugar, and he pretty much nailed this. the reason there used to be more compromise between the parties was because they were more ideologically heterogeneous. that isn't the case today

Make it very clear that Republicans have nothing to do with the resultant economic crash. Yes, it will hurt, but people need to wake up and realize that Dem policies are strangling the country.

I thought that was the best part of Pat F'ing Caddell's rage against the media video a few months ago.

He made the point that no national GOP figure ever addresses the fact that the media is 1) openly rooting for the Dems and 2) actively undermining the GOP at every turn.

I think Obama whined more about the media ('treat me like a dog') than any GOP figure did in the last four years.

Thanks!—For the answer and for doing this stuff all day.

(Goldberg’s book grew out of a WSJ article he wrote in 1996, link in name shortened because WSJ is banned, where he basically fisked a colleague at CBS for using adjectives on conservative ideas they’d never allow for liberal ones; the book itself goes more heavily into the media using labels far more often on Republicans than on Democrats. It’s a little depressing how things are basically the same as fifteen years ago except worse.)

All the legislature in Utah. Utah is the mirror of California only with republicans there is only a very narrow window for governors to work in. His three major policy undertakings were lowering the food tax so poor people weren't impacted by it, civil unions for homosexual couples and changing state agencies from five to four day work weeks. That combined with the school choice were all he had. Four years after he quit as governor only the civil unions are still in place. One, the four day work week, was ruled unconstitutional because he enacted it through executive order not legislative action. He's the Mormon Republican Obama. Pretty, speaks well with only vapidity to back it up.

I think part of the reason the Republicans capitulate is because they don't feel the support of the base as the Democrats do.

The Republicans got pretty bold in 2009 and 10 because we came out and showed we care. Then as our rallies stopped, the Republicans' boldness faded.

Here's a crazy idea. Let's let Boehner and McConnell know we have their backs. Maybe that will embolden them.

182 re: 'We say things like "Call them out" but what does that mean when we have such a small megaphone?'

I think "Call them out" is advice intended for people who are allowed to step up to the megaphone. You know, not us. Like when Newt went with the "your question is stupid because you're stupid" attitude for a while. That was fun.

The problem is that the *only* criterion by which a (nominal) opposition figure is allowed access to the megaphone is acquiescence to the megaphone's premises/attitudes/etc. If they don't play by that one rule, they get destroyed--with enthusiastic assistance from the nominal opposition--and then of course they can't be allowed to get near the megaphone, because they're a fringe crazy Palin racist Beck idiot Limbaugh rape! etc., and letting them talk would be irresponsible.

So.

A unified countenance-no-bullshit front from all the public faces of the GOP might work, to some degree. It could clarify things, and clarity is good. It's a place to start.

But aren't things already clear?

Look what story we're commenting on. Will Huntsman get thrown out of the Party for this? No. And yet, in effect, Palin was. For...wait, what was it again?

Ah, whatever. Her name got put on The List, so--the end. All any prominent Republican wants is to not get put on The List, and getting put on it is the only sin the Party recognizes.

The one thing we here out in no-megaphone-land can *definitely* do, that's completely within our own control, is: Don't help. Don't join.

But... Too tall an order, isn't it?

234 Yeah, what Rush is saying.

235 I'm not a big fan of labels either. "Vice President," "2016 POTUS," "Ole Joe from Scranton," "Biker Chick Magnet." Literally, those are just labels.

Honestly, I'm just a big f*cking deal. That's the only label I need.

236 I'm so goddamned disappointed in my country. I think I need to just unplug from it all for awhile.

I'm with you Warden. The wife and I are actively taking steps to get the hell out of California, downshift our lives, and find a quiet, peaceful place out in the country (red country of course) and stay out of the way of history. Cause it's coming through like a steamroller.

Quick, can anyone name a Democrat who's joined No Labels?
That's easy - Jon Huntsman! Well face it, he's no Republican.

241 I have a label for both Huntsman and Bloomberg. Douche and Bag, respectively.

242 Jon Huntsman would have beat Obama, you retards. Name a single one of his policies in Utah that wasn't conservative. He put his state on the road to flat tax, cut gov't, and is fiscal right-wing as hell. Can you even name a single substantiative, way with regards to POLICY in which Huntsman would have been bad?

Huntsman's tax plan during his campaign was VERY CONSERVATIVE and had liberals crying: http://taxprof.typepad.com/taxprof_blog/2011/08/jon-huntsmans.html

Just because the man plays heretic against the GOP establishment (yeah, a real bunch of winners, judging by how they trounced Obama this year) doesn't mean he isn't a Republican. Do any of you have a substantiative criticism of him that isn't parroting rhetoric?
