Huntsman, Manchin Take Besties Photos

After dropping out of the presidential election and a two season-long Republican bashing media tour, Jon Huntsman is ready to lead along with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.). The pair, along with Republican Strategist Mark McKinnon, are founders of “No Labels” a project aimed at fostering bipartisanship in Congress.

Huntsman and Republicans haven’t seemed to mesh since he ran for president. In April, Huntsman curiously compared the party to communist China. And as someone who saw him deliver an obviously scripted “unscripted” speech at George Washington University, I can say he’s not that inspiring.

On Sunday Huntsman and Manchin traveled to New York City to announce No Labels’ initiative to recruit 75 members of Congress as “problem solvers.” Some of the worst doughy, white, male, political photos surfaced along the way…

Posing besties

“We’re on our way to the Meeting to Make America Work!” an email from No Labels said. “Just another few hours until we start talking about how to get our country to stop fighting and start fixing!”

Spontaneous besties

“BREAKING NEWS: A Republican and Democrat playing nice on Amtrak,” tweeted Abby Huntsman, daughter of Jon Huntsman, yesterday afternoon.

Third-wheel bestie

“McKinnon, Huntsman and Manchin chatting before joining us at the table,” tweeted the “Morning Joe” crew today. The trio appeared on the program as guests.

Matching besties

“Early morning with Machin on Morning Joe. Always great seeing Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough,” Huntsman tweeted today.
