Huntsman a Voice Crying in the Vast Republican Wilderness
Jon Huntsman lashed out at presidential rival Rick Perry for the Texas governor's stance on global warming as he sought to pull the party back to toward the political center. He might as well be tilting at windmills.

1. Well, Governor, if you trust scientists, you are in the wrong party.

2. Kind of like Dick Lugar in 1996

He too was accordingly ignored, and that was when their party was even less loony than it is now.

Utah Democrats are pretty conservative. I don't see why Huntsman doesn't just switch over.

3. I agree totally with him on this
We've got people on the Republican side who are too far to the right, and we have zero substance."

4. Huntsman
I have said it from the beginning, Huntsman is the only 
republican candidate that scares me. He is a centrist
conservative.
