In order to attack Jon Hunstman because it was clear he will be a threat, Ron Paul supporters made a video of Jon Hunstman speaking in Chinese while in China. In the end they photoshop him into a Mao Zedong's uniform. It had 154 likes vs. 4,127 dislikes. Here it is:

I think it's funny that his supporters obviously made this to support Ron Paul, but it'll hurt his image, even though he never endorsed it, and denounced the ad, too. http://www.cnn.com...

Because before the debate: 01/05 NBC/Marist -- Romney 42, Paul 22, Santorum 13, Huntsman 9
After the debate: 01/07 ARG -- Romney 40, Huntsman 17, Paul 16, Santorum 12

I'll take your numbers on faith. The bolded above is the issue. Little else can be considered a threat.

And Huntsman could take a lot of steam out of Romney's train by winning NH. He's been there for about as long as Santorum was in Iowa, probably longer.

Why would they even attack Huntsman of all people? He's the only decent one there. Gingrich is dishonest and foul, Santorum is an immense bigot, Romney is a vacuous figure who stands for nothing, and has spent his entire campaign attacking our president instead of forming actual plans. They attack the one figure who can stand in front of a Republican audience and say what he thinks, not what they want to hear. Plus, in the debate, when Romney made ignorant comments about China, Huntsman basically shut him up.

The ad isn't just poorly executed, its ill-conceived. It should have attacked the guy heading the polls.

It wasn't. He publicly denounced it.

The polls have dramatically changed after the "Meet the Press" debate:

Romney 35, Paul 20, Huntsman 11, Gingrich 9

TBH, this is the first I've really heard of Huntsman, so this ad had the opposite effect?

in NH? Well santorum still is ahead of huntsman even though he's only been there for a few days: http://www.realclearpolitics.com...

and overall the brown line (santorum) is having mega surge, he just today overcame paul: http://www.realclearpolitics.com...

NH4Liberty is one supporter of Ron Paul. The lack of quality in the video evides that it was not made by the Ron Paul campaign. The perspective taken by the person that made the video evides that they do not support Ron Paul, but Huntsman.

Why would a Buddhist like me bash Jon Huntsman for being entrenched in Chinese culture. I think the ad made Jon Huntsman look good.
