Conservatives: What's not to like about Jon Huntsman?

This guy has a good track record as governor, has actual foreign policy experience, is incredibly likeable and pragmatic with bipartisan credentials, and is totally composed on the stage.

What's not to like? I am obviously not the GOP's demographic here, but I think he is far and away the strongest candidate on that stage.

Yet he's polling in the single digits.

(This is a thread primarily for conservatives and those who usually vote GOP. I think my fellow liberals will have a harder time pegging why conservatives refuse to flock to him.)

I'm rewatching the debate because I DVR'd it (because I'm a glutton for punishment), and Huntsman and Paul are the only people who are complete command of what they're talking about.

Gingrich comes close, but then he says things like "we can make the price of oil plummet globally if we just drill everywhere".

I really, really like what Huntsman proposes for conservativism. A saner, less dogmatic conservativism that doesn't give a shit about talk ****ing radio. It's fantastic and it provides the necessary counterweight to liberalism.

At least that's where I come from. But again, I'm not the target demographic.

A liberal trying to intelligently discuss conservative ideas, principals and views is like a vegetarian reviewing steak houses. Also I can't imagine that you "really really like what Huntsman proposes for conservatism" but rather for republicans and you are neither.

I'm afraid you're in the wrong locker room little girl.

If you are an uber liberal and like a guy on the other side it should make sense that people who believe opposite of you would see things differently, yes?

Circular argument.

If the reason conservatives don't like him is because he can't win, but they otherwise really do like him, than why don't they just change that?

Why marry yourself to Romney when you can have the more conservative, more consistent, more likeable version?

Anything on his record you don't like? Anything substantial?

Not that this isn't substantial, but surely it can't be the only reason.

But they feel he is most electable—so support him anyway. Remember, it's who can beat Obama not a principled conservative—a Horse Race!

If conservatives want to beat Obama, they'll do the smart thing and nominate Huntsman.

This guy would attract buttloads of independent votes. And he's also get the Republicans, too. What are they going to do? Vote Obama?
