This guy perplexes me, surely he knows that this comment will seal his fate with the far wackos of the Tea Baggers. I wonder if he is positioning himself for an Independent 3rd party candidate:
Jon Huntsman writes in The American Conservative that he favors same-sex marriage rights and encouraged other Republicans to join him:
"Today we have an opportunity to do more: conservatives should start to lead again and push their states to join the nine others that allow all their citizens to marry. I've been married for 29 years. My marriage has been the greatest joy of my life. There is nothing conservative about denying other Americans the ability to forge that same relationship with the person they love."
I thought he had a chance. Huntsman was the only one running in the 2012 GOP Primary that was not absolute insane. I guess your right though, the GOP has moved so far right that he never had a chance, or will in the future.
