Jon Huntsman: GOP 'Devoid Of A Soul'

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman (R), who ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, had harsh words for his party in an interview published Sunday in Britain's Daily Telegraph.

"The party right now is a holding company that's devoid of a soul and it will be filled up with ideas over time and leaders will take their proper place," he said.

"We can't be known as a party that's fear-based and doesn't believe in math," he added. "In 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."

1. Huntsman is just a creepy, weird opportunist.

"..and it will be filled up with ideas over time and leaders will take their proper place." WTF does that even mean?

4. That almost sounds like Taoism.

Along the lines of "the empty vessel shall be filled".

3. Just one important point here:

"opportunity for all our people" and "a strong dose of libertarianism" are mutually exclusive. Those two things have never existed together for a reason.
