Jonathan Martin has interesting post on Jon Huntsman, the Governor of Utah, as a potential 2012 GOP candidate. Sounds like a pretty impressive guy, though I’ll not that as the economy goes, so too do governors. Anyway, the post reminded my of a theme I’ve been harping on of late:
Huntsman also talked fluently about education, energy and health care, making the case, as many of his fellow governors have, that the GOP needs to come up with practical solutions on such day-to-day concerns.
He said the party must look at the results of last week’s election, and make changes to stay relevant.
If Republicans think that “changes to stay relevant” mean cleverly repackaging traditional GOP policies, it’s not going to work.
