During a Thursday interview on "The View," Republican presidential contender Jon Hunstman blasted former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for "stringing people along" over whether she would decide to run for president in 2012. Huntsman, who also asserted that Palin is making money "doing what she's doing," suggested it would have been foolish of Palin to give up her current "business" for an uncertain presidential race.
“There’s too much drama and theater in politics,” Huntsman told the View's hosts. “I mean come on. You string people along. Everybody who has anything to do with politics knew she wasn’t going to get in the race. She has a profit proposition, she’s got a business. She makes money doing what she’s doing. Who on earth is going to leave that for the uncertainty of presidential politics?”
When asked if he believed her decision was made because she wanted to spend more time with her family, Huntsman answered, “Hey, my family is here. I get to spend time with my family.”
