Huntsman mounts Harley-sends message

After the pomp and circumstance, the cannons firing and bands playing, the flags and the applause, Ambassador Huntsman (past governor of Utah) rides off of Utah’s capitol hill on board a a “big hog” Harley Davidson. No, not a farm animal, a motorcycle.

Flanked by Utah Highway patrol and his posse of dirt biker buddies, Huntsman may have sent a perfect message to Chinese trade counterparts awaiting his arrival in their country. Buy American, buy Harley. Certainly the US based manufacturer’s public relations team should be “making hay” with this endorsement from the USA’s newly appointed and  most powerful trade ambassador.

Some feel that Obama appointed Huntsman to this post to sideline any potential opposition from the savvy Republican politician. However, the president may yet learn that Huntsman still has growing political, and guerrilla PR, savvy that may haunt the liberal machine.
