UDPATE: 1:31 p.m. A spokesperson for the Ron Paul campaign, Kate Schackai, said in a statement minutes ago: "That video is distasteful." She said the campaign would follow up with Concord NH Patch soon with more comment.
Here is the previous story:
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman spoke to students and others at the New England College 2012 College Convention on Jan. 6, offering a 25-minute stump speech and answering questions from attendees.
One questioner asked what Huntsman thought of a negative video created by a Ron Paul supporter, NHLiberty4Paul, portraying him as weak on China trade policy because he spoke the language. A cartoon of Huntsman as Chairman Mao is featured close to the end of the ad. Huntsman called it "stupid," but was more upset at the use of his adoptive daughters - one born in China and the other in India - in the video.
"What I object to, is bringing forward pictures and videos of my adoptive daughters, suggesting that there is some sinister motive there," he said.
Huntsman noted that his Chinese daughter was left in a vegetable market and now, is "one of the greatest human beings" he knows. His other daughter was born in a village in India and "left for dead the day she was born and luckily was picked up before the animals got her."
"I have two little girls who are a daily reminder that there are a lot of kids in this world who don't have the breaks that you do," Huntsman said. "Now these two girls are on the presidential campaign trail. I say, How cool is that?"
