Huntsman: There is No Right or Wrong on Civil Unions


In the debate last night Huntsman said about civil unions, "I think this nation can do a better job when it comes to equality.” But when pressed if his opponents were wrong on civil unions he responded “They are not wrong.” But the flip side of that coin is that Huntsman is not right.

Not a surprising response from the man who can't decide if he is Mormon or if he isn't.

right on dan, i would only argue with those who say he is runnning away from his mormon faith, i think hes just not a pro like mitt when it comes time to addressing his mormon faith, so it may seem like hes running away from it but hes not.

I have no problem with civil unions. My problem is the needs of gays wanting to call it marriage. Chose another term.... how's GAYriage?

I'm for a Constitutional Amendment that DEFINES marriage as a civil union between a MALE & FEMALE.

Dan, Huntsman wasn't ready for prime time last night. I don't know if he ever will be, but he didn't seem to be able to get his bearings very well.

I'll bet he has a good explanation for civil unions, he just wasn't prepared last night to expound on anything. First night jitters, but it makes it hard for him to get any traction now.

IMO, both Tim and Jon are toast.

Martha, I agree that Tim and Jon are done.

For most people, this is the first time to see Huntsman. He did very poorly, and I kind of feel sorry for him this morning. Why is he even running.

sorry, I thought Mitt's argument on dealing with marriage at the federal level was very interesting.

I started to experience the Pawlenty effect (ZZZzzzz..(every time Huntsman opened his mouth.

Did anyone else notice his voice quivering?

Rev, Huntsman was on the verge of tears for the first hour of the debate. It was very embarrassing to watch.

Maybe he was coached that he needed to show emotion and passion. Half-time adjustment was that he was over doing it.

Although, being in a debate on national television where any misstep, gaffe, or goof will be replayed again and again has to be extremely difficult. Also difficult are the questions that are framed in a way that try to box you into a particular stance, but are impossible to counter given the one-minute timeframes.
