“The Republican governor of Utah on Monday said his party is blighted by leaders in Congress whose lack of new ideas renders them so ‘inconsequential’ that he doesn’t even bother to talk to them.
‘I don’t even know the congressional leadership,’ Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. told editors and reporters at The Washington Times, shrugging off questions about top congressional Republicans, including House Minority Leader John A. Boehner of Ohio and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. ‘I have not met them. I don’t listen or read whatever it is they say because it is inconsequential – completely.’
