Not saying that you have to be "hip" to be president. Far from it. But if that's the case then you need to just avoid that topic altogether and not try to be funny. It's clearly not going to work.
Also, if he doesn't want to play the "game" to say one thing just to get party votes in primaries, then he clearly doesn't really know much about running for president. He's no better off than Ron Paul. Except Ron Paul doesn't bend or break on his platforms; Huntsman apparently won't break on his style. Also, Huntsman never had the community or passionate supporters of Ron Paul. That's what made Huntsman so damn frustrating. He could have beaten Obama, but he made ALL the wrong choices during primary season.
Even that one debate where Romney threw that pile of shit at him, "Jon Huntsman is a Republican who worked with Obama! We can't have him as our leader!" (crowd boos)
Huntsman: *starts speaking Chinese, thinking that his bilingual abilities will astound or impress the audience in some way, when clearly he's dealing with South Carolina Tea Party folk who don't know their asses from a hole in the ground*
Huntsman: *troll smile*
