In the HuffPo:
“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.” [emphasis added]
I’m not sure that Huntsman’s characterization of the Republicans as fear-based is anything more than a liberal talking point he’s internalized. However, I’d like to think he is right in the last sentence.
