You might as well come to terms with it - Romney will be the last man standing from the GOP lineup. Obama will indeed be a one term president. At long last.


Is Ayotte mormon?

Well Read

Without a doubt - Romney will not be the next president. Obama will win a second term! The only Republican who has even slim chance to beat Obama is Huntsman.

Let us all pray that anyone beats the disaster known as Barack Obama. He has almost wiped this country out in three years, another five years of him and his insane philosophy will take us beyond the point of no return. This isn't an election ,it is a referendum on the survival of the nation. Obama has lost all confidence and consent of the governed, even his own pollsters are telling him to step aside for Hillary. His favorite lap dog, Chris Matthews even awoke from his coma this weekend and saw what an incredible disaster this man is. I don't care who the Republican nominee is, any of them are a huge improvement.

It is sad but because I live in liberal California my vote for Mitt Romney will have little influence to elect him as president (other than the primaries). My money however will help his candidacy. I recommend that you contribute to show support for the next President of the United States, Mitt Romney.

@ Well Read,

Are you kidding me? Beating Obama is going to be like shooting fish in barrel, he is an unmitigated disaster. His own Democratic pollsters told him this weekend to give it up in favor of Hillary. Even Chris Matthews, the number one Obama lap dog of all time,denounced him this weekend. He will be lucky to win two states.

What does it matter what religion she embraces? Is she running for the Utah State Legislature? I didn't think so.........

The poll released Sunday shows the Michigan-born ex-Massachusetts governor getting 46 percent compared to 41 percent for Obama. The difference is just beyond the poll's 4 percent sampling error. Thirteen percent are undecided.

I watch Fox as much as I can stand to see what they are saying. It seems that Hannity and several pundits are rooting for the Newt. True colors are coming through.

Go Mitt!

Kramer's Corner: Good Comment: My Money Supports Mitt and the Revival of America!

To: CJ: Your comments are right on!

If Democrat ideas are so good then why is California Dying? The facts are many! Illinois is dead too, even with a 30 plus percent increase in income taxes it is not enough! Another Democrat state bleeding jobs and businesses!

It's way too early to select the nominee based on a few polls or even endorsements. Can't we at least get through the first two or three primaries before declaring a winner?

I really hate it when the TV and newspaper reporters start to insist that the Republican nominee for president is all but a done deal.

Remember in the last Presidential election when everyone thought that Hillary Clinton was unbeatable in the Democratic primaries?

Is Ayotte Mormon?

I suppose their are a few still out there who care? What does that matter anyway. What matters is that the Obama curse be removed from our country along with all his cronies.

Everyone needs to get on board with Mitt. We need to be united to take out Obama. Our country is at stake.

As much as I love Newt, he is a loose cannon in some ways. If we put him at the head of the ticket, we will be making a BIG mistake. He's a genius and a visionary, but he has too much baggage and he occassionally does some really boneheaded things. That's quite typical of geniuses--brilliant but often not functionally as competent as they should be.

We need Mitt. He's our one chance to stop the disaster that is Obama. Everyone needs to face this and get on board.

Saint George, UT

Glad to see Romney picking up endorsements from key people across the country. He needs to do more if he wants to win. In the last election, McCain did that constantly and that's how he surpassed Romney.

Holladay, UT

Many claim the bias that ethnic groups have had in voting certain political officials into office.

If you are for Romney, make sure you are for him because of his platform, and not because of his Mormon background. I have met too many Mormons who are willing to vote for Romney because of that.

What is the difference between Romney and the guy in your ward who swindles you out of all of your money, if you don't take a look at what they stand for? I don't believe Romney will do so, but I think we need to address the shallowness of political assumption due to a shared religion.

Spanish Fork, UT

I'm not impressed by endorsements. They sway me very little. Endorsements rarely change a candidate's basic platform or rhetoric.

I'm not excited about a Mitt candidacy because the man has shown so very little wisdom in political questions over the years. Furthermore, he is dead wrong on one of the most vital questions of our time when he aligns himself with the unexamined warhawks and declares that we must send more of our brave volunteers overseas for objectiveless armed conflict.

Mitt almost ceaselessly talks up the alleged importance of the American "Empire" instead of harking back to the wise principles of our Founders who warned that we could do far more with setting an example of liberty than with armed interventions and coercions.

President Gordon B. Hickley also warned in General Conference in 2003 that:

"We sometimes are prone to glorify the great empires of the past, such as the Ottoman Empire, the Roman and Byzantine Empires, and in more recent times, the vast British Empire. But there is a darker side to every one of them. There is a grim and tragic overlay of brutal conquest, of subjugation, of repression, and an astronomical cost in life and treasure."

"If you are for Romney, make sure you are for him because of his platform..."

I agree, so I have read Romney's book "No Apology" and his website and just about everything I can find on him. That is how I know that most of the articles and comments against him show an ignorance and misrepresentation of him and his positions.

My daughter has done survey phone calls in Iowa. One woman said there was no way she could vote for Romney because he was a flip flopper. When her concerns were addressed she admitted that the real reason she wouldn't vote for him is his Mormon faith.

I think that the reason pundits and reporters harp on the flip-flop argument against Romney, which could be said about all candidates, is that they don't want to admit their religious bigotry.

If you are against Romney make sure you have read his book and everything else you can find on him, so you can be sure your oposition isn't just because of his Mormon background.

UtahVoter quoted:

Sorry sir, I don't see how this correlates at all with the United States of America, i.e., "brutal conquest, of subjugation, or repression"??? Am I missing something, or what?

Cedar Hills, UT

Good luck Mitt!! Hopefully in 11 months we will be celebrating President Romney's win and ushering in a new "independence day" for America. Out with the Marxist radicals and a return to common sense leadership.


I am very pleased to see Mitt get another endorsement. One of the comments made by one our commentors strikes the cord of Genius. It stated that this coming election is really not an election. It is a referendum on the Survival of America. To vote for any Democrat is a vote to dismantle and destroy America. Democrats have proven over and over again that they want to spend us into oblivion. I am retired and a disabled Veteran.

If a group of concerned citizens sued me to keep me from voting in Federal elections using the conflict of interest precedent I would be pleased. If successful this would keep many folks who are drawing money from the Federal Government from voting because most peoplE receiving more money (except SSI) from the Federal Coffers will vote for anyone who will give them more. THIS MUST STOP NOW! Tax payers only and non-government workers should be the only people voting in Federal elections. This would stop the constant pressure to spend more money and cripple the evil Obamites who are spending us into slavery.
