Huntsman Proves That He’s No Better Than The Other GOP Candidates: “DOMA Serves A Useful Purpose”

At the National Press Club in D.C., where Jon Huntsman unveiled his “Restoring Trust” plan that he would pursue upon election to the White House the Washington Blade asked Huntsman about the speech this week by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton advocating for LGBT human rights overseas.  When whether he would pursue a similar strategy upon taking office, Huntsman said “getting our house in order” in treating each other in the United States with fairness will encourage other countries to do the same.

“When we do it right in this country, we exude values that the rest of the world seems to watch and emulate — values of individual dignity, liberty, democracy, human rights and open markets,” Huntsman said. “I think we ought to focus on getting our own house in order here in terms of how we treat one another, the respect we feel for one another, getting our economy back on track and fixing our core. If we can do that, I think the rest of the world will pay us a little more attention.”

But when asked by the Washington Blade about DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act Huntsman replied that it “serves a useful purpose” in allowing states to decide the issue of marriage.

“It allows states to make their own decisions, to make their own way, and the Defense of Marriage Act, I think, is a safeguard for those states to make that decision,” Huntsman said.
 
In less than 3 minutes Huntsman preaches promoting human rights,  fainess and respect to other countries by example to he willingly supporting, praising, and saying that he believes in one of the most Unconstitutional and unfair human rights laws ever to be in effect in America.
 
Hunstsman is no better than the rest of the GOP Presidential contenders.
 
Less visibly crazy yes, but just as bad and as full of shit.
