Jon Huntsman: GOP 'Devoid Of A Soul'

Source: Huffington Post

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman (R), who ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, had harsh words for his party in an interview published Sunday in Britain's Daily Telegraph.

"The party right now is a holding company that's devoid of a soul and it will be filled up with ideas over time and leaders will take their proper place," he said.

"We can't be known as a party that's fear-based and doesn't believe in math," he added. "In the end it will come down to a party that believes in opportunity for all our people, economic competitiveness and a strong dose of libertarianism."

Hunstman, who dropped out of the Republican race after coming in third in the New Hampshire primary, has criticized the rightward tilt of the party. In a recent interview with The Huffington Post, he took issue with the obstructionist policies of the GOP, describing them as "thwart the opposition, stymie the opposition, obfuscate, be a flamethrower, go out there and destroy the system, and here we are."

What I wonder is where do all the moderate Republicans go like Chafee, Snowe and Huntsman? I disagreed with their policies, but at least you can make a deal, and they were actually willing to govern. The current Republican party looks like it is looking for an excuse to bring the country to ruin.

Mr Low integrity poster, you might want to try taking the cap lock off next time you type, although either way your post is devoid(another good vocabulary word for you, and surprisingly, spelled correctly). Try having a point next time, it makes the post more interesting for the reader.
