Former Republican Governor Huntsman Blames Birthers For Romney's Loss Tuesday

"If we spent as much time talking about solutions in the future as we did the President’s birth certificate for heaven’s sake, we probably would have won the darned election."

So said Republican presidential candidate and former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman on CNN's State of the Union Sunday.

FORMER GOVERNOR JON HUNTSMAN (R-UTAH): Let me just say that what would bring us all together - and Gary and I worked for a great president, Ronald Reagan – he used language that people could connect with. Words matter. The way that you articulate these sometime sensitive issues really does matter. There’s a certain chemistry involved in a campaign, and we haven’t been able to define the elements of that chemistry to get it right in recent elections. The Republican Party I think owns the big issues of the day. We ought to be bold, we ought to be confident. If we spent as much time talking about solutions in the future as we did the President’s birth certificate for heaven’s sake, we probably would have won the darned election.
