EXETER, N.H. — Republican presidential contender Jon Huntsman has released a plan to break up the nation’s biggest banks.

The former Utah governor says officials haven’t done enough to protect against future taxpayer bailouts. He says too many banks are still considered “too big to fail.”

The sane one. The problem is that the other ones are just not self destructing fast enough.

Great idea. It just ensured that he will never be elected. The big banks are not going to allow it.

Well they have already invested in Romney. I guess he figured that he wasn't getting their support anyway.

He never had a shot at winning the Republican nomination anyway.

Now, if he could get the nomination and people learned more about him, I really think he could win the general election.

The more I hear about the guy, the more I like him.

But but but, this one dude said it as well. How come he's not sane?


Perry: Break up the banks - YouTube

Once again, people are ignoring Ron Paul who has been saying for YEARS, let the big banks fail

IMO. It would be a landslide for Huntsman. The guy is clean as a whistle and the absolutely most qualified candidate on Domestic AND Foreign affairs issues.

I am very well aware of Ron Paul and, while I am a registered Dem and don't agree with Paul on every issue, I do support him and would vote for him over Obama.

I can say the same for Huntsman as well.

Perry is not without his good aspects but I could never support someone with his social views.
