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."
