Huntsman objects to Paul ad featuring adopted kids

Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman says Texas Rep. Ron Paul's campaign is out of line with a web ad that uses images of Huntsman's adopted daughters from China and India to argue that he doesn't hold American values.
The ad includes video footage of Huntsman, the former ambassador to China, speaking Chinese to his now-12-year-old daughter Gracie as an infant. On Friday, Huntsman called the ad "stupid" and objected to suggesting there is something sinister in his decision to adopt Gracie, and later another daughter from India.
Huntsman has spoken movingly of his daughters while campaigning. Gracie was abandoned at a market at two months of age. Huntsman's other adopted daughter was left to die on a roadside in India the day she was born.
