I find it comical the idea anyone would think attacking Huntsman, a complete nobody with zero name recognition, is somehow a productive use of their time. Just that by itself is unbelievable, of course, the first hit coming from Jon2012.com is incontrovertible. - ChrisRon Paulís presidential campaign has hired a consulting firm to analyze the YouTube video critical of John Huntsman attributed to Paulís supporters.
The analysis conducted by CanDo.com concludes that the video was posted by Huntsman supporters, not Ron Paul supporters. It was intended to provoke a backlash against Paulís campaign.
CanDo.com says it reached the conclusion because the YouTube account on which it was posted, NHLiberty4Paul, has no other videos and the video was posted on the same day the account was created. A Twitter account associated with the account was also created on the same day.
In addition, Huntsman's campaign site, jon2012.com, linked to the video a day before it was picked up on Facebook, Gawker, RedState and before the establishment media attempted to denigrate Ron Paulís supporters.
"After researching the available evidence, we believe it is likely that the video came from a source within or closely tied to the Huntsman Campaign," CanDo.com concludes.
Here is CanDo.comís summary:
Since no direct link to the video exists on Jon2012.com, how could YouTube show Jon2012.com as the referring site?†† Our best guess is that someone used a server on the Jon2012.com domain (such as webmail) to read an email that contained the link to the video. It is also likely that the first mobile views at that same time originated from links in emails. Clicking on a link from a webmail system on Jon2012.com would provide the needed headers for YouTube to record the link....The Huntsman campaign responded predictably to the accusation that operatives close to his campaign probably created the video.
"It is offensive that Ron Paul's allies would claim that Gov. Huntsman's own family would create such a video that distracts from the important issues that this country faces," said Huntsman spokesman Tim Miller.
Unwilling to admit that the Paul campaign had nothing to do with the video and it was not created by his supporters, Miller attempted to characterize the results of the CanDo.com analysis as a conspiracy theory.
"Their latest conspiracy theory is nothing more than an attempt to cover for one of their racist supporters. The Paul campaign has botched the response to this shameful video from the beginning. Had they simply condemned the video and their supporter, we would be discussing the important issues facing our country. Instead their ridiculous and easily debunked 'commission report' will continue to focus attention on this shameful video," said Miller.
