|Jon Huntsman Speaks at The George Washington University|
|Oct. 25, 2011--Former Gov. Jon
Huntsman, who announced his candidacy just over four months ago, spoke
to GW College Republicans.
"Folks we are in a funk. We are dispirited. This is not natural for the most creative, most optimistic, most problem-solving people on Earth. We've got to get out of the hole we're in. It's totally doable."
"We can pull it together folks, we just need a little leadership. We need a plan. We need someone to point the direction. It's totally within our grasp. So President Obama ran and won in 2008 on a thing called hope. And I say you can win on a mantra. That doesn't mean you can lead, when a nation so desperately needs leadership."
