Pulling No Punches, Herbert Blames President Obama for the Shutdown

GOVERNOR GARY HERBERT SAYS, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN IS ALREADY PROVING DISASTEROUS FOR THOSE UTAH COMMUNITIES, ADJACENT TO OUR FIVE CLOSED NATIONAL PARKS.

DURING HIS MONTHLY NEWS CONFERENCE THIS WEEK, HERBERT SAID CITIES LIKE MOAB AND SPRINGDALE WILL TAKE SEVERE ECONOMIC HITS, IF THE IMPASSE ISN'T RESOLVED SOON.

HE BELIEVES THE ABILITY TO DO THAT, LIES WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA.  AND THE GOVERNOR ISN'T PULLING PUNCHES, SAYING THE PRESIDENT HAS SHOWN A LACK OF LEADERSHIP.

HERBERT SAYS WASHINGTON NEEDS TO STEAL A PAGE FROM THE UTAH PLAYBOOK, WHERE STATE LAWMAKERS ROUTINELY COMPROMISE TO GET THINGS DONE.
