Huntsman: Mitt's China Talk Is 'Typical'

Just about every one of Mitt's former Republican oppenents has turned around and endorsed him, making their weekly bickering at the GOP debates seem like nothing but a distant memory. But Jon Huntsman, who also backed Mitt when he dropped out of the race, remains critical. The former U.S. ambassador to China rolled his eyes at Romney's claim that, as president, he'll be tough on China. "This is a typical trajectory, where duing a campaign season you're going to talk about China in ways that you're hearing today," Huntsman said on CNN. "Bill Clinton did it when he talked about the Bushes of Beijing. Ronald Reagan did it in 1980." But, he added, "Then you get into office."
