| by Michael Allen

Former Utah Governor and current GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman told CNBC host Larry Kudlow that Mitt Romney is making himself “completely unelectable" because Romney made the comment that he “liked being able to fire people” (video below).

Huntsman said: "First of all, you’ve got to get elected to office for heaven’s sake, and making statements like that you render yourself completely unelectable. Whether you’re referring to economic policy, it really becomes more of a political issue, when you’ve got the Chicago political machine and $1 billion bearing down on you. You make a statement like, you talk about pink slips, and pretty soon you’re going to lose the high ground."
