It is not often that I thank President Obama for much of anything. But in this case I wholeheartedly thank our president for getting rid of a Republican In Name Only, RINO, in Utah governor, John Huntsman.
In an announcement this morning, President Obama named Mr. Huntsman as his ambassador to Red China and thus Mr. Huntsman has to resign as governor of Utah.
Soon to be former Gov. Huntsman is one of those Republicans that is "moderate" on social issues such as same-sex marriage and abortion and is a believer in Globaloney Warming.
Having such a belief on Globaloney Warming is very dangerous as it accepts a lot of junk science that only now is being disproven. Also, buying into the false ideas of a "green" economy is a certain job killer and growth killer in the United States.
The successor is Lt. Governor Gary Herbert who is clearly where the majority of Utahans are not just on social issues but economic growth.
One thing that is important that in a state such as Utah, there is a large rural population. And Mr. Herbert is clearly one that listens to those concerns and not just those of the urban and suburban areas.
And while a consensus builder, Mr. Herbert is one of those that does so without selling out.
Now, President Obama, is there a need for an ambassador to Austria? I have the perfect candidate for you!
