Huntsman Goes to Foreign Policy Strength in New Video

Having been largely on the sidelines of earlier presidential debates concerning the economy, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is going to his strength concerning foreign policy, as reported in The Hill.

The video included a series of clips from Republican presidential rivals Herman Cain, Mitt Romney and Rick Perry which underlined Huntsman's statement at the end of the production which says in large letters, "Only One Candidate Has Foreign Policy Experiece."

Huntsman had stepped down as governor in Utah in 2009 when President Obama nominated him to become the ambassador to China.

He had previously held that post in Singapore under President George H.W. Bush.

In one segment of the video concerning China, Cain is shown saying, "Yes, they're a military threat. They've indicated that they're trying to develop nuclear capabilities."

The problem with that is China has long been considered to be a nuclear power ever since it first tested a nuclear weapon when Lyndon Johnson was president.

The video also went after Romney for conflicting statements he has made concerning a timetable for U.S. troops to leave Iraq and showed Perry stating an incorrect fact involving India.

Huntsman's production also included an appearance he made on NBC's "Meet the Press" in which he says, "I think at some point the substance really does matter and you've got to have a commander-in-chief who actually understands the world in which we live."
