Jon Huntsman hits Mitt Romney in another Web ad, this time with gymnasts

Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman unveiled yet another Web video on Friday knocking fellow contender Mitt Romney for changing his position on several issues during his career in politics.

The Huntsman video shows Romney discussing  his views over the years while a split screen plays clips Olympic gymnasts taking on a balance beam. When Romney takes a position that doesn't jive with conservatives, the gymnast tumbles; when he provides a different answer to the same question that conservatives approve of, the gymnast nails it.

The spot plays off Romney's time as head of the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2002.

"After spending a lot of time at the Olympics, flipping and contorting himself comes natural to Governor Romney," Huntsman campaign spokesman Tim Miller told Yahoo News. "Yet such gymnastics makes it hard for voters to trust him, because they can never be quite sure where he's going to land."
