Huntsman to give foreign policy address

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman will deliver a major foreign policy address in New Hampshire next Monday, days after Mitt Romney gives his own foreign policy speech.

The former Utah governor and U.S. ambassador to China will present his vision for U.S. foreign policy in a morning speech Oct. 10 at Southern New Hampshire University.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has announced he will give a foreign policy speech of his own Friday at The Citadel in South Carolina.

Huntsman is moving his campaign headquarters up to New Hampshire and has made winning the first-in-the-nation primary state the focal point of his campaign. State polls indicate he has increased his appeal among voters here, but Romney remains the overwhelming front-runner in the state.

The campaign is touting Huntsman's experience representing the U.S. abroad as unique among the GOP field.

"At a turbulent time on the world stage Gov. Huntsman is the only candidate in the race with hands-on foreign policy experience," said campaign spokesman Michael Levoff. "He will offer a visionary, modern and nimble foreign policy that will both make us safer and expand our economic interests, creating jobs here at home."

    Huntsman was Ambassador to China for a couple years, then QUIT HIS JOB to turn on his employer.

    Who needs advice from a dirtbag like that?

    Who really cares if Huntsman gives a speech?
    Maybe he should primary obama. At least the media could campaign for him to a crowd that may be interested.

    What are his qualifications? Oh yeah, we all want to hear a foreign policy speech from a person who had breakfast at IHOP and stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.

    Come on over to the Democrats where you belong. The Republicans don't have room for a compassionate leader with brains who isn't a slave of the Tea Party.

    This is a great guy, too bad he didn't keep his day job. In the crazy GOP primary this governor might as well save his money for a future race. Wait, can he be rehired after he quit to run for the Presidency?

    No one wants to hear what a BACK STABBER has to say. Follow Romney's lead and go home, come back in 2016 and lose again.

    In my opinion, Huntsman is probably the best the gop has to offer. Maybe he'll get some traction in NH, we'll see. I can't wait to hear RP give a speech on anything. I always enjoy a good laugh.
