WASHINGTON (AP) Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman is pounding away at rival Rick Perrys skepticism of manmade global warming and criticism of the nations central banker, saying those stands hurt the GOP and make the Texas governor come off as a not so serious national figure.
Huntsman, a former Utah governor who was President Barack Obamas first ambassador to China, has trailed in early polls nationally and in early voting states, leading his campaign to pledge more aggressive attacks on the top candidates.
Perry, who entered the race last weekend and has surged to a prominent role, has provided Huntsman with an ample opening to take shots.
Perry said in New Hampshire this past week that he didnt believe in manmade global warming, branding it an unproven scientific theory. He also defended the teaching of creationism in schools because evolution has some gaps to it.
When we take a position that isnt willing to embrace evolution, when we take a position that basically runs counter to what 98 of 100 climate scientists have said, what the National Academy of Science has said about what is causing climate change and mans contribution to it, I think we find ourselves on the wrong side of science, and, therefore, in a losing position, Huntsman told ABCs This Week.

I thought that was suppose to be DNC's Debbie Wiseass Schultz' job. Huntsman obviously wasn't paying attention when Pawlenty attacked Bachmann and paid the price.
Advice for Huntsman - QUIT while you behind!
Shouldn’t he be primarying against Obama?
Huntsperson will end up helping Perry by reminding voters that Perry believes global warming is bull shiite just as they do.
Who cares? No one in the GOP, certainly. This is just newsrag fodder.
Huntsman wants to sit with Newt on a couch.
Yes, and most doctors smoke Camel cigarettes. Toss in a couple of celeb spokesmen, and I'm certain RINO Huntsman would become a chain smoker...
Patent 6904336 on Carbon Credits
is secretly held by ... Fannie Mae and the DNC.
Better NOT hold your breathe waiting for the MSM to report it.
Why is this guy running? It appears he just wants to help Obama.
The problem here is that Perry is NOT A CONSERVATIVE. He may look that way compared to Huntsman and Romney but check his record on things such as immigration, vaccines, federal dollars, etc. etc. etc. He has fooled a lot of people here on FR and he is no Bachmann, Palin or West.
Who the heck is Jon Huntsman?
I am proud that our state’s installed wind generation capacity leads the nation, a place we did not reach by accident.
A lot about Perry I like but if he runs on this crap (I doubt he’ll be mentioning it much) he will get destroyed on the right.
Huntsman is a loser.
Any moronic candidate that spouts AGW BS is automatically
removed from my list of candidates.
As I understand (from a thread post on FR) during the latest heat wave in Texas, all those wind farms they have, failed to provide the electricity they promised to provide.
he is helping himself lose.
“Who the heck is Jon Huntsman?”
A cross-dressed Meghan McCain?
Huntsman started off slowly and is now tapering off.
When they decided carbon dioxide — plant food — was the main contributor to global warming, I knew they had lost their minds. Instead of going after real pollutants, the EPA is waging war against plant food.
Glen Beck has been telling us how great Huntsman Sr. is for quite a while. Next thing I know Huntsman Jr is in the presidential race.
The strategy for Huntsman to elevate the debate by being strongly fiscal conservative with a serious record at the same time going after the anti-science “know-nothing” wing of the party (creationism etc) is going to win him a LOT of moderate Republican (current Romney), Independent and disaffected Democrat voters.
Just wait and see. :)
“Who the heck is Jon Huntsman?”
Huntsman is a democrat operative and a hero to RINO’s.

Not really.. Some freepers are not freepers.. they are poseurs..
On the other hand no matter the subject some freepers will be against “it”..
If only just to challenge the concept..
Like me, I think Reagan was too liberal... not a well received view..
Some freepers are just contrary.. I love this place..
Why not?.. they are JUST ideas anyway..
Its hard to tell what a freeper really “believes”...
Depends on the day...
After a speech, for example, by Barry Half-White...
Some freepers are looking for something to be against..
Just looking for something to trigger a negative screed..
I’ve done it many times.. using FR for an outlet for frustration.. WELL GOD BLESS THEM(us)..
FR sometimes keeps us sane... kinda..
You’re 100% correct. If Perry is elected he will carry on where Obama left off. He is a closet socialist who is out to ruin the country. We need to nominate a REAL conservative who agrees with us on every single issue but has no chance in hell of beating Obama.
My republican governor loves pinwheels too.
Its irritating that he does so many good things then turns around and spews the green economy crap. We needed John Engler, not John Muir.

Anybody can beat Obama so why would you want a RINO? How did that McCain thing work out for ya?
Who? Huntsman who? Huh? LOL!
Thank you, NewHampshireDuo!
Huntsman’s still in the race?!? Pathetic...
What a disappointment Huntsman is turning into.
He could have been outstanding. If he was more like Donald Trump, and less like Al Gore.
.....Huntsman started off slowly and is now tapering off.....
Just imagine his self esteem. His daddy groomed him for President and he is just flailing around.
Fail. Embarrassment. Shame.
I bet most of this guy’s campaign funds come from kenya.
I had the misfortune of watching part of ABC World “News” Tonight on Saturday night.
They had an interview with Huntsman, and the reporter was saying that all of the other GOP hopefuls are “fringe” candidates and Huntsman is the mainstream, etc. It was stomach turning.
Thankfully, Huntsman has no chance of getting the nomination. I wouldn’t vote for him if he did. Shame on the Bush family for pushing this guy, Obama-lite.
Absolutely....he doesn’t poll worth a crap and trying cheap Democrat tricks won’t gain him any traction.
Debate organizers are well-justified in keeping him out on the basis of lousy polling.
I’ve recently seen Democrats whining about Huntsman leaving the race on a neutral forum I’m on, which says all that needs to be said. They didn’t believe it when a fellow conservative there commented “Never heard of him.” Which also says a lot.
The 2012 election will unmask all pretend, two-faced Republicans for one and all to see. RINO masks are coming off and now the Tea Party aka We The People can identify and work to send them, name by name, packing in disgrace. The 2012 election is about electing freedom-loving American patriots. If a politician is not an American patriot, they must be exposed and voted out. IMO, RINO Hypocrites aka liars, corrupt politicians aren’t wanted and won’t be tolerated by Americans who love freedom and want a future for their children and grandchildren.
I think a female is going to win this one. I like them both. The rest are RINO’S, except for Caine
They are throwing up wind mills all over the thumb area of Michigan. We will see where that goes.
Consumers energy has decided against the reliability of coal and is going to use wind instead.
I hate living under a monopoly.
Who is Huntsman?
I agree. Notice how companies just GO with what ever the administration says. Have you seen the size of those blades. I passed a couple on I-96 this year and it looked like a big white whale. HUGE Wait till one spears an eagle.
What a waste of dollars in a state awash with hydrocarbon energy. Windmills are a joke.
Re: Who the heck is Jon Huntsman?
A obama @ss kisser!! His anouncement to run made that quite clear
Obama should drop Biden and add Huntsman.
My very liberal daughter-in-law pronounced Huntsman her favorite Republican. I told her he has a chance of a snowball in hell of getting the nomination. Actually, she'd never vote for any Republican, but she wants someone weak enough to get slaughtered by Obama. To her, conservative candidates like Michelle Bachman and Herman Cain are "crazy." She also considers herself an expert on economics. Although she is in reality a very nice person, I have a very hard time not laughing when she talks about economics.
