Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is getting a taste of the vehement opposition to his possible presidential candidacy in certain conservative circles. A Christian conservative blog produced a video comparing him to a rhinoceros – or RINO, the derisive term for Republican in name only, ABC News reported Friday.

video, huntsman, rinoThe two-minute video shows Huntsman, who served as ambassador to China for President Barack Obama, standing next to the president and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Verum Serum, which produced the video, titled it: Common Sense Campaign for America.

The producers used Huntsman’s words matching graphics on important issues, such as health care.

“I think healthcare is a right…Why is it that the insurance sector will not provide affordable healthcare policies? I’ve called them in, I’ve asked them. I’ve humiliated them publicly,” Huntsman says in the clip.

Verum Serum put a caption, Bold Ideas, under the following Huntsman sound bite.

“What other Republican ever would have embraced the western climate initiative?” Huntsman said. “We’re recognizing climate change for what it is, embracing a cap-and-trade proposal. What other Republican ever would have embraced John McCain as a presidential candidate.

“When you look at the number of Democrats that support our campaign, when you look at the number of Independents who support our campaign, we’ve had a crosscutting approach to managing issues and embracing nontraditional issues that I think would suggest we’ve been anything other than a traditional Republican.”
