It's a sad day to see the divisive DC politics trickling down to the states. I
sure wish the two major parties would stop this fighting/infighting and start
serving the interests of their constituencies.
I generally vote for Dems but I like Huntsman. I would vote for him if he were
to get the nomination (it will never happen though).
"The Dems don't have answers to our problems"Guess you
missed the first Republican presidential debate. Or the past 2.5 years.The way Republicans will stimulate America again is to reset everything
to circa 2006. This time it has to go better right! In those 2
years Democrats did something that politicians have been squawking about for
decades. They finally started the process to try and correct the awful mess
that is the American health care industry. Not perfect, but finally something
on paper that can serve as a building block. FDRfan has the right idea in his
post.And Republicans response to continue that path to reforming
health care....undo "Obamacare" and, and, and, nothing. Democrats give
"Obamacare" while Republicans offer "We Don't Care, There's
Nothing Wrong."There's clearly been a party with no ideas.
They've been trying to undermine each of Obama's since the day he took office.
Holland is for democracy -- right up until it comes to a union vote and then he
wants to do away with secret ballots so he and his union-boss buddies can keep
their jobs through intimidating the vote.
Dems, So you had a moderate governor who in some cases evolved his poisitons
more toward the center and who served your beloved President Obama. Admit it,
you loved Hunstman as governor and you would love him again if he became
president because he would govern again from the center. The Dems
don't have answers to our problems--they had two yaers holding the House,
Senate, and Presidency and they couldn't even pass a budget. All they did was
enlarge government and promote the agenda of thier core supporters. NOw that
they lost the House, they can blame all the problems on the Repubs. The Country
is in a stalemate. The most compelling reason to support Huntsman is he would
have the best chance of bringing this country together. Obama knows that and
that is why he fears a Huntsman presidency run above all others.
The AMA supports individual mandates for health insurance. But why make
insurance companies rich for no good reason? We need each state to adopt a
universal system similar to Medicare and not waste needed resources enriching
private companies. We don't do it in education and we should not do it in health
care. If private insurance companies can do it better and more efficient then
let them compete with a state government plan. We need a government option and
an individual mandate.
Now this is really rich! If he had changed from conservative to moderate they'd
be clapping and singing praises. But because they say he's going from moderate
to conservative, they can't start yelling loudly enough, soon enough, or long
enough.Dem's in this state have it pretty tough already; why do they
like to shoot themselves in the foot with this kind of garbage and mud slinging?
Gosh, get a clue!! He served a Democratic President---why don't you tout that
instead of making a pseudo-Huntsman commercial? You must have more money than
you can figure out how to spend by wasting it in such fashion. Your
explanations on Channel 5 were laughable; it didn't even qualify as a "nice
I think RINO may be his strongest attribute for a Republican.
This is one of those rare occasions where the Utah Democrats actually make a lot
of sense and I can agree with them.Huntsman in a RINO. An
opportunistic politician who cannot be trusted to do as he says.I am
almost sorry I voted for him. (But, really, he was still better than the
Democrat running against him for Governor!)I would not vote for
Huntsman for President in a primary election.
I do not understand why they are running these ads? What do they hope to
