Says Jon Huntsman http://www.inquisitr.com/463232/former-presidential-candidate-jon-huntsman-says-gop-has-no-soul/ Former Presidential Candidate Jon Huntsman Says âGOP Has No Soulâ Former Utah Governor and 2012 presidential contender Jon Huntsman had some rather sour words for his party in a recent interview, criticizing their obstructionist stances and criticizing them of being âdevoid of a soul.â In the interview, published Sunday in the Daily Telegraph, Huntsman criticized the GOP for having no central vision or platform and keeping Congress in a holding pattern until they figure one out. âThe party right now is a holding company thatâs devoid of a soul and it will be filled up with ideas over time and leaders will take their proper place,â he said. âWe canât be known as a party thatâs fear-based and doesnât believe in math,â he added. âIn 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.â He also criticized the GOP in a recent interview with The Huffington Post. âIn my party, compromise cannot be seen as analogous to treason, which it has been recently,â he said.
