Yeah true enough.

The Huntsman campaign has been something of a puzzle from the start, but the conservative response to Huntsman’s candidacy has also been rather bizarre. On substance, Huntsman is hewing much more closely to current movement conservative line on fiscal and social issues than Romney, but he is widely perceived and treated as if his positions are well to the left of Romney’s.... In many respects, Huntsman is the anti-Romney so many conservatives keep demanding, but Romney’s reflexive anti-Obamaism is still more viscerally satisfying than Huntsman’s conviction that public service should transcend partisan tribalism.
Ya reaps what ya sows. All of that anti-obama drama ( socialist, muslim, kenyan foreigner, the list goes on ) has seemed to work into the consciousness of conservatives so deeply that they can't seem to see things as clearly as they might. Conservative/Republicans of late seem to swinging at peoples lizard brains ( fear of the outsider and such ) to gain traction now they don't know how to interact with people on a more intellectual but no less substantial plane.
