PEMBROKE, N.H. -- As he enjoys one last day of having New Hampshire to himself, Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman says his consistent, predictable core is just one of the many things that differentiate him from front-runner Mitt Romney.
A reporter in Lebanon, N.H., asked the former Utah governor to compare himself to Romney. Huntsman strung together all the criticisms he's been sprinkling into his speeches, starting with his contention that he can get elected president.
Huntsman rattled off the rest of his Romney criticisms, saying voters want a candidate who has a consistent core, who hasn't been on three sides of every issue, and who has a record of creating jobs as governor.
Huntsman is skipping Tuesday's Iowa caucuses and counting on a strong finish in the Jan. 10 New Hampshire primary.
