Jon Huntsman Daughters

Jon Huntsman DaughtersJon Huntsman Daughters, A disgraceful video issued by a group called NHLiberty4Paul has run an online video entitled “Jon Hunstman: American Values?” Ron Pauls official support groups have denied any involvement in the production.

Paul spokesman Jesse Benton said to CNN. “The video is disgusting. Whoever put it up should remove it immediately.” The campaign later posted a more lengthy response trying to distance itself from the spot.

Huntsman, responded to the video himself on Friday, calling it stupid and explaining his family background.

There is footage of Huntsman with his daughter Gracie, now 12, who Huntsman and his wife Mary Kaye adopted from China as an infant, and another daughter Asha, now 6, who was adopted from India. Above the image runs this vague conspiratorial question “China: Jon’s Daughter Even Adopted?”

The video goes on to mock Huntsman’s fluency in Chinese and his work as the U.S. Ambassador to China while running a soundtrack of Chinese music. “American values. Or Chinese?” the ad asks. It then declares him “the Manchurian Candidate.” At the very end of the video, there is an image of Huntsman dressed as Mao Zedong and the words “American Values and Liberty. Vote Ron Paul.”

After a tsunami of criticism about this video targeting Huntsman’s children, Ron Paul offered a tepid remark to CNN, not quite endorsing the ad but certainly not forcefully denouncing it either. “I couldn’t even hear it, haven’t looked at it, but people do that, and they do it in all campaigns,” Paul said.

Despite Paul’s comment made more than a week ago, the ad has not be removed or modified; it is still running. I echo the sentiments of Cindy McCain, the wife of John McCain, who tweeted her disgust at this video. “I deeply resent the video made using the adopted daughters of@jonhuntsman, @ronpaul shame on you.”
