File this story under either “possibly coming soon to a Huntsman GOP primary opponent’s ad near you” or “Jon Huntsman hires Chris Matthews as ghost writer.”

Daily Caller:

Jon Huntsman, President Obama’s outgoing ambassador to China, is considering running against his boss in 2012 as a Republican.

But two handwritten letters from Huntsman obtained by The Daily Caller raise the question of why he’s not campaigning for Obama instead.

“You are a remarkable leader,” Huntsman wrote to Obama in an Aug. 16, 2009 note, underlining the word “remarkable,” “and it has been a great honor getting to know you.”

In an Aug. 10, 2009 letter to former President Bill Clinton, Huntsman was similarly effusive.

“I have enormous regard for your experience, sense of history and brilliant analysis of world events. Please save some time for me when I’m next in New York,” Huntsman said.

I imagine even Charlie Crist is saying, “dude, what were you thinking?”

Word is that Huntsman trained for writing these sycophantic letters by watching a tape loop of Eddie Haskell brown-nosing Mrs. Cleaver on Leave it to Beaver.

If the presidential thing doesn’t work out for Huntsman, he’ll definitely be in the running for a leadership position somewhere in the mainstream media.
