Huntsman: ‘I Cringe’ When Perry Goes Birther; ‘Nonsensical Talk’ Will Drive Away Independents

Jon Huntsman has a stark warning for Rick Perry with his apparently playful suggestion that President Obama wasn’t born in the United States: Don’t go there.

On ABC’s “Top Line” today, the former Utah governor said Perry is in danger of alienating independent voters by wrongly suggesting that there’s doubt about the president’s birth status.

“When I see one of my colleagues, Gov. Perry, who starts talking about birtherism again, I cringe. I say, as a party if we are going to win this election we have to focus on the issues that are germane for the American family,” Huntsman told us. “That’s expanding the economy, that’s jobs, that’s our position in the world. And when we get off on those fringe issues, we lose the independents in particular. The independents are looking for a home, and the independents largely are gonna drive the outcome of the election.”

“They hear some of that chatter, some of that nonsensical talk, and it causes them to turn and walk away. And we can’t afford to have that happen,” he added. “It’s been settled folks. It’s been settled: The president is a citizen of the United States. I mean, how much more do we have to talk about it? Let’s move on to the real issues of the day.”


  1. Mockingbird media parrot, Republican establishment shill, Karl Rove's loving admirer, Communist in the R Party.

  2. Yeah Huntsman! "It's settled." That's the mantra that All Gore (sic) kept saying about the "debate" on global warming. His brains are where the sun doesn't shine - as are yours.
