In order for the republican party to win, we can’t run from science… By making comments that don’t reflect the reality of the situation, you turn people off.
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, easing off direct attacks on Texas Gov. Rick Perry, among others in the GOP field, for a general point about the Republican party.
Huntsman was doing great up until this; it was similar to when Tim Pawlenty backed down from his “ObamneyCare” comments a few debates back. Huntsman still turned out what was overall a charismatic and commanding performance, but this wasn’t the best note to end on.
