Huntsman: Feud over Obama speech is "nonsense"

On NBC this morning, Jon Huntsman said he didn't have much interest in indulging either Barack Obama or John Boehner in yesterday's feud over the president's request for an address to Congress.

"I think it is such nonsense, Savannah.

This is what people hate about politics. We're spending all this time about the drama of the venue [than] about the substance of what's going to get this country back to work again.

I think that venues are venues, and the president needs to find one where he can articulate his vision, but for two-and-a-half years, it hasn't worked."
