N.H. Republicans slam Jon Huntsman’s push for illegals’ rights – BostonHerald.com http://www.bostonherald.com/news/us_politics/view.bg?articleid=1339432&srvc=rss
Doesn’t he know Republicans no longer support “human” rights, only God-given American rights, like who to marry.
“I think these positions certainly set him apart from most others in the (GOP) field,” said Josh Dorner, spokesman for the Center for American Progress Action Fund, a liberal Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit. “We want to make sure that everyone is aware of some of the really important progressive issues in his past … which we think are something to be proud of.”
Huntsman also is facing questions from Republicans regarding his ambassadorship to China. “One of the most damaging things to him … is that he served in the Obama administration,” said Andrew Hemingway of the Republican Liberty Caucus in New Hampshire. “That is a really hard thing for a lot of people.”
Oh jeez, this is going to get ugly.
The funny this about it is, for me personally, Huntsman is just the type of Republican I could vote for, one with a somewhat rational policy agenda.
The idea that serving our country is somehow a detriment is also somewhat baffling (if one wasn’t aware of the current Tea Party bias in the primary part of the GOP).
