Jon Huntsman: Obama "has failed us on the most important issue of our day"

In an interview airing Monday 9pmET/PT, GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman is interviewed on "Piers Morgan Tonight." He talks about Pres. Barack Obama, who appointed him Ambassador to China. "There is not a personal relationship," Huntsman tells Piers Morgan. "You work for your president when you are asked to served."

Of the President's policies: "He had 2 and a half years to do the most important thing demanded by the American people – fix the economy, create an environment that is conducive to job growth, and he has failed us. He is a good man, he is earnest, but he has failed us on the most important issue of our day." Watch the full hour sit-down Monday night at 9pmET/PT.

    The only Republican who can actually beat President Obama, Jon Huntsman. Too bad the republican party changed from center-right, to extreme right (the reason why Huntsman will never get the nomination).

      I really enjoy your quest for TRUTH. I would encourage you to explore our US Treasury Dept. having over $3.8 Trillion Dollars in the Iraqi Dinar Currency from the Pres. Bush era, on their balance sheet, along with us 1.7 Million Americans.

      If Pres.Obama would expedite Iraq's revaluation of their currency back up to the $3.22 Pre-War Rate, then that $3.22 x $3.8 Trillion will become $11.91 Trillion, which hopefully everyone's praying, they will pay-off the debt.

      I also have a U.S Treasury FOIA submission, confirming the Iraqi Dinar on their balance sheet. Plus, with the revaluation of the Iraqi Dinar that us 1.7 Million Americans are holding will IMMEDIATELY stimulate the economy with our taxes, purchases of goods and services.

      Don't let this get by you and it NEEDS some serious INVESTIGATING. You can youtube these articles and get informed: Dinar 101 By BH Group, also CBNC Dinar,also the Biblical prophetic significance on Babylon, Pt. 4 Glen Beck/Joel Rosenberg.

      Also you can listen to the Dinar Conference calls nightly from 8pm to 12am, EST. 760-569-7676 Pin 637255# and to listen to the latest recorded intel call, dial 760-569-7699 Pin 194924#. It will reveal so much to you, that you've ONLY heard about, until now, so you can the facts.

      Also, you can go to the Dinar website, THECALLSQUAD.COM and download the declassified US State Dept report called, FREEDOM FROM INTEL, which is Pres. G.W. Bush's plan for going into Iraq. This was written by Bush in 2002 for on going into Iraqi for oil as well as the rebuilding process and we are at the final stages of the implementation of that report. So we all know, the revaluation is EMINENT for Iraq.

      Plus, one can buy $100 Iraqi Dinar in 25,000 Notes for $100 US Dollar and when it revalues, it will then equal $300,000 US Dollars exchange rate. Its Foreign Currency. Donald Trump acquired $30 Million as well as others.

        Why has the Iraqi dinar not revalued when every thing you read is how much it would benefit the world? Everyone sees how bad things are,it only makes sense for this to happen ASAP. What or who else can pull the world out of this brink of full world depression!!!!!!!!!!

So we all know, the revaluation is EMINENT for Iraq. It also happened before with Kuwait when Hussain invaded Kuwait, their Dinar devalued from $4.56 to 1/10th of a penny, then after the US liberated Kuwait, there dollar revalues to $9.00, so if one was informed then, become INSTANT MILLIONAIRES.

      Plus, one can buy $100 Iraqi Dinar in 25,000 Notes for $100 US Dollar and when it revalues, it will then equal $300,000 US Dollars exchange rate. Its Foreign Currency. Donald Trump acquired $30 Million as well as others.

      Piers: I hope you asked Gov. Huntsman if he would raise taxes for the rich or just attack Medicare and Social Security like the Cantors and Ryans of his party. That is the typical "sane" Republican stance - No taxing the rich, etc. He did raise his hand during the Republican Debate on that issue. So I would cross him off my list! However, he appears to be the only sane member of the Republican primary contenders. But his basic agenda would not differ; only the "social" agenda. That is a good thing, but we need the middle class people having a strong voice in government - NOW!

    Jon Huntsman stated what every American already knows, so let's get past Obama! He's OVER! Bring on the new candidates, let's put somebody in office that will actually represent the people and do something. I'm putting my chips with Mitt Romney! You should too!

      If a Republican candidate, even a "normal" (half-normal like Romney who keeps changing his stance and was a corporate raider) this Country would be in trouble. The only good candidate still is Barack Obama. His next four year term will be a great one. Note: Everyone talking against the President: Are you all rich; or do you belong to the middle class? Why would you want to vote Republican????

    There is definitely a place for him in the race right now Romney has a monopoly on the moderate vote, but the truth is that something just doesn't click with him for a lot of voters. Once people learn about Huntsman, I think thousands will realize they have a better option than Mittens.

      People aren't in love with Romney because he is the biggest fraud in politics. He will do or say anything to be elected. Republicans considered Kerry a flip-flopper - Romney is in a league of his own. Hunstman may not be the nominee, but he is the most honest, articulate candidate in the field. As an independent I can't vote for Obama again and I refuse to vote for Romney or Bachmann (she is a nutcase). The only republican I would vote for is Jon Hunstman.

    Why do republicans say lack of jobs is Obamas fault, yet they will turn around and say government does not create jobs when asked about their distrct????? Greed is killing this country.

      Because Obama actively impedes jobs progress that doesn't include borrowing money for temporary government funded make-work jobs and support of union and government supporters .It was no coincidence that employment skyrocketed to 10% as a reaction to the passage of the stimulus bill and health care. None of the jobs the president wants to generate are real jobs in the sense of being economically useful in the longer term than the money funding them.

      A Democratic congress and President had their way for two years. Passing numerous stimulus packages and Obamacare. It didn’t work, no recovery and the Republicans have called Obama on it. Now it’s suddenly the fault of the GOP?

        Obama and the democrats only had two years after 8 years of republican leadership. Everyone forgets that the republican's were the cause of the economic problems we are in. For 8 years we deregulated and gave more money to the rich, allowing them to move all of our jobs to other countries, move the profits out of the country so they don't pay taxes on their increasing wealth, and spent trillions on defense that were not even part of the budget. Thank goodness the democrats stepped in and kept things from getting much worse. Much worse. Why allow the republicans to do more of the same???

    President Obama was unproductive because the day he took oath of office, the sole objective of making his presidency fail germinated with the opposition,
    The sole GOP agenda.
    President Obama can be faulted for not coming out fighting.
    What most Americans , politicians & public chose to ignore is that the decline of US of A had set in with our home grown penchant for military interventions. Precisely what a great President and a decorated general himself, Dwight D.Eisenhower had warned us about and predicted back in the sixties.
    The decline both as a superpower and an economic edifice had set in with our invasion of Iraq & Afghanistan.
    Besides draining us of trillions of dollars & precious lives these wars & interventions in places like Yemen & Libya, our prestige & clout continues diminishing in regions vital for our economic & strategic goals. The 700 military bases we maintain around the world and special forces ops being conducted in numerous countries put further strain on the national treasure we no longer have.
    Aided and abetted by special interests & foreign lobbies our fiscal policies went awry & the consequences stare us in the face today.
    Just keep a watch on where the defence cuts proposed in the Debt Deal land up via Panetta and where our venerated law makers (80 plus of them) land on an all paid junket, during their coming recess and you would know what I'm trying to say.

      learn to speak Russian or Chinese before you get to far into your rant cause the next axe that falls on the military will be the one you don't want to see. The DOD started cutting their budget at the order of SEC Gates a long time ago and it has been the focus of the DOD for the last 3 years. People like Barney Frank don't what you to know that cause then it would look like the military cares. The problem that I see is this, If we do a training exercise and spend lets say 40miliion, How did it turn into 400million with less weapons dropped and sorties flown during the real deal. Even burning fuel everyday, unless you aren't familiar with military budgets, you wouldn't know what the bottmline is.

    Piers, What in the world is wrong with people!!! You ask the mayor if he ran would he raise taxes. Question; do you have so many people doing things for you that you never check your checking account?? I check mine daily and I can tell you what I can and can't spend. Our government has spent for so long wihout looking at the check book that now they have used up almost all of the over write protection. The other thing is this and I have seen this first hand; if someone pays in to the tax system lets say 1500 would be a good number and when they file their taxes they get back 7000, WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE??? Steve Forbes said it best, you want money in the bank, use a flat tax and everybody pays the same percentage. OH WAIT, I forgot, that means guys like you will have to pay your share as well as Bill Gates and Warren Buffet and all the other people. He also said take out the loop holes cause there are to many deductions and it was a FLAT TAX, there would be none of that. I don't care if they need some taxes from me but they need to stop playing musical accounts with the money and stop the stupid stuff. That goes for all of them from the president on down. They are all a bunch of wimps that are afraid to say, DAMNIT!! THE BUCK STOPS ON MY DESK. Where is HST when you need him???

    SMALL BUSINESSES – it is very difficult to get a loan to start a small business or just stay afloat because the banks are so tight, they don't have enough equity in their home to draw from, can't even use credit cards (too much interest and they have lowered peoples limits), etc.....But some of them have retirement money they would like to use but the tax and a big penalty they are charged is too much.

    Why doesn't the goverment come up with a plan so they can use their own retirement money to start a business or save the one they have.. I have a snall restrauant for sale (showing a profit finally) where two buyers have money in their retirement, but they cannot justify the cost to pull it out. The governement lets them invest tax free to big corporations, but nothing for the small business owner – cant even use your own money. Why?

    Piers Morgan has repeatedly lied about the Tea Party while trying to paint Mr. Huntsman as a Tea Party supporter. And the sad thing is that Mr. Huntsman has allowed Mr. Morgan to use him as a sounding board for his hatred.

    The Tea Party did not want the government to default on the debt. It wanted the government to act responsibly for future generations and cut the budget to keep the debt from going up. Perhaps Mr. Morgan's status as a British subject prevents him from being objective about a movement which resembles the one which tossed the Red Coats out of the colonies during the American Revolution.

    I am eager for the Tea Party Candidates to toss the American royalty (President Obama, Senate Democrats, and all the other Tories) out of our Republic.

    First I wanted to comment as to the "cookie cutter" responses from the Minister on the Iraq Dinar and then it hit me. Of course, he is part of an Investment Company and encouraging your business. I am one of those Dinar holders and I must say it has been a long road to revaluation and who knows how far we are away from it still. Very difficult getting the straight answers out of Iraq.

    Second, I wanted to say that as a former Government worker I have to encourage everyone to support our President no matter what your Party affiliation and what Party they are a part of. From the time I was there in D>C> and even now I encourage people to learn more about Politics on the Local level because that's where it all starts. Those people you elect to the Senate and House of Representatives are the ones responsible for governing our Country. Our President's hands are tied without their cooperation. He is just a Political puppet placed there to take the heat.
