There are many bad Republicans out there, including several awful governors. I know that Utah may have the claim of having the biggest joke of a GOP governor, but Arkansas's Asa Hutchinson may just be the biggest coward of them all.
On CNN's State of the Union this week, Asa Hutchinson tried as he always does to seem like the "reasonable" kind of Republican who is constantly kissing up to the Democrats and the corporate media.
Hutchinson signed the bill into law that would ban nearly ALL abortions if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
Obviously, "Hutch" never thought that Roe would be overturned, but now that it looks like it will be he has DEEP regrets about signing such a pro-life law.
This is the definition of a coward, ladies and gentlemen.
Arkansas' near-total abortion ban should be "revisited" to provide exceptions for instances of rape or incest should the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade, the state's Republican governor said Sunday.
"While it's still life in the womb, life of the unborn, the conception was under criminal circumstances, either incest or rape. And so, those are two exceptions I have recognized I believe are very appropriate," Gov. Asa Hutchinson told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" when asked why a young girl impregnated by a family member should be forced to carry that child to term.
"And what will happen as time goes on, if Roe v. Wade is reversed, these are going to become very real circumstances. I think the debate and discussion will be – will continue and that very well could be revisited," he said, adding later: "I believe that those exceptions are going to be important … overall to save lives because the public understands those exceptions, the importance of it. So I think that will be revisited."
Hutch is saying, "Sure, I signed the law as is, but I didn't think it would actually ever go into effect. Now that it looks like we might have to enforce it I'd really like to change it."
So he signed it to go along with the people of Arkansas to buy their votes, but if it actually goes into effect and ends up saving the lives of children who would be aborted, he thinks the law should be revisited.
What a slimy political creature.
And this isn't the only example of Hutch being a fake conservative.
Here he is trying to argue that allowing children to take hormone blockers is conservative.
Also, after it looked like the pandemic was in the rearview mirror, the governor banned mask mandates. Then, when it turned out the Dems were never going to let go of the pandemic, Hutch decided that that was a mistake too.
HE SIGNED THE LAW!
In this case and the abortion case, he knew what the laws said, signed them, and then tried to backtrack when it looked like he might actually have to enforce the laws.
He's only in favor of conservative policies when he thinks they are empty and meaningless virtue signals.
This is a prime example of a RINO.
