2012 presidential candidate Jon Huntsman was on ABC's This Week, where he took on his other Republican rivals. In doing so, he completely steamrolled Michele Bachamann over her $2 gas comment.
Last week at a town hall meeting in South Carolina, Rep. Bachmann promised:
The day that the Pres. Obama became the president gasoline was $1.79 a gallon. Look at what it is today. Under President Bachmann, you will see gasoline come down below $2 a gallon again. That will happen.
In response to her comment, Huntsman said:
You know, I just -- I just don't know what -- what world that comment would come from, you know? We live in the real world. It's grounded in reality. And gas prices just aren't going to rebound like that. But just as we are in a static world, that is completely unrealistic. And, again, it's talking about things that, you know, may pander to a particular group or sound good at the time, but it just simply is not founded in reality.
Is this the only sane guy in the Republican race to challenge Pres. Obama for the White House in 2012?
