Huntsman: Controversy over Obama speech 'nonsense'
Huntsman calls controversy over timing of Obama jobs speech 'nonsense'
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman calls the fuss over the timing of President Barack Obama's job speech "nonsense," saying it is "what people hate about politics."

Huntsman says Obama "has not been able to deliver on jobs" so far, so it doesn't matter where or when the president delivers his new plan.

After House Speaker John Boehner balked at Obama's request to speak to a joint session of Congress on Sept. 7, the president agreed to move it back to Sept. 8.

Appearing Thursday on NBC's "Today," Huntsman also criticized his GOP rivals, saying "we're getting drama but not solutions."

Asked if Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann are too far to the right to beat Obama in 2012, he said voters "don't want politics at the extreme ends."
