Has the President even been to this state yet?
Why would he come? We're easily the most Republican state in the entire union.
He can't gain anything by stopping here.
We care why?
Welcome to Utah.
I'd love to know how much that trip to park city is going to cost.I'm in philadelphia and I'm sure I could make the trip for less than 10%, and
it wouldn't cost taxpayers anything. These trips are getting ridiculous. I
can't wait for a president who provides an example of how to live prudently and
don't travel the world telling others how to live when the USA has enough
problems as it is. I feel that recently we have had first ladies who are more
like queens/princesses (feel entitled to the use of tax dollars for whatever
they see fit).
Oh goody! ( insert my sarcasm)
Clinton came to ski at least.
This is gonna be terrific for the kids!
Michelle is an accomplished, admirable person. She is trying to help our country
in her own way, just as previous First Ladies have always done. Why don't
you people grow up.
I'm very conservative, you might even say ultra conservative.. but not neo-con.
I'm a die-hard paleo-conservative (old style basically).With that,
you can imagine that I don't like most actions that Obama has taken and I don't
even like what a good number of so-called 'conservative presidents (or any
politicians really) do in politics today.--------With
that said, I am greatly displeased with people using this medium of
communication to publicly make Utah out to be a place of hatred, cynicism, or at
very least an unwelcoming and unfriendly state to those who don't agree with
everything we overall support.I welcome Mrs. Obama here without a
second thought or hesitation... as should we all. If I could I would have the
'welcome' comments posted first, and all the other bickering put dead last on
here.I love Utah, but in my opinion (and as an LDS conservative) I
say this... the people cynical and unwilling to listen in this state, both LDS,
non-LDS, political, and uninvolved in their society, those who don't do anything
good but fight for the sake of fighting... they ruin the good of this state.Welcome Michelle Obama!
Why go to park city. May i suggest wellsville.
Im a conservative and like the woman.
no fit in SG | 12:59 p.m., Seconded. Obama visited here
as a canidate. The LDS church gave him a copy of his family tree.
Michelle Obama campaigns against Obesity and you people are curious how much the
trip will COST?? Why didn't you ask Laura Bush to walk while your at
it. Have some class.
@ A voice of reason -- Well said.
Sorry (R) trollsters, though there are many things about Obama's leadership as
President I don't agree with, you are showing your mean-spiritedness. I was
hoping we could do better here in Utah but I guess not...
It is nice to see, among the expected sour and bitter comments above, all those
who welcome the First Lady to Utah. I have appreciated the efforts of recent
past First Ladies and now look forward to having Michelle Obama here. Her
emphasis on dealing with obesity in children is much needed these days, and I
appreciate all she has done and continues to do to help alleviate this
problem.So, welcome to Utah, Mrs. Obama!
Which is it, July 26 or 27? I've heard both dates. Will she be speaking? I'd
love to see her and hear her speak.
Well done Voice Of Reason. Thank You!
Park City? Why wouldn't Michelle want to take in say...Provo or Draper?Oh thats right....No lunatic lefties~
With today's economy, yes, I'm questioning everything that leads to wasteful
spending which includes trips made by the first lady on the taxpayers dime.And I didn't exclude Laura Bush from my first post if you reread it.
The President, as a candidate, was scheduled to visit the state (Park City).
However, it was cancelled out of respect for the passing of President Hinckley.
Also, to correct a previous comment, he has not visited Utah while President.
President Monson and I think Elder Oaks visited the Oval Office and presented
him with his family tree.
She keeps a low profile---to the dismay of the wealthy media elites in
For those complaining about costs:CERTAINLY you know that campaign trips
are paid for by the respective parties.For those complaining about
Mrs Obama:Good way to show us you're NOT the lunatic fringe!For ONCE, people? Can't we all just get along and respect each other?
If she wants to visit, have at it. I personally have no intention of being
anywhere near Park City during the time she is there. I hope her trip is
pleasant as she sees another part of this great country.
One of the necessary duties of the President and the First Lady is to help
Americans feel a commonality with other Americans and the "First
Family." This is one reason why they travel the United States. Yes, it
costs money. But this should transcend politics. It is an aspect of American
leadership and I respect any President and First Lady who travels throughout
this nation. Several years ago this board was abuzz with criticism
for Rocky Anderson for protesting a sitting President when the President visited
the state. I think that similar criticism should be leveled at those who posted
negative comments on this story. They have essentially proven that there are
unpatriotic, uncivil and unfeeling people across the political spectrum.
"TRUTH | 2:28 p.m. July 8, 2011 Salt Lake City, UTPark City?
Why wouldn't Michelle want to take in say...Provo or Draper?Oh thats
right....No lunatic lefties~"Oh thats right....No lunatic
lefties~"Yes, the lunatic lefty captains of industry. The
lunatic lefty successful business people. The lunatic lefties that can afford
multi-million dollar homes. Yes, these people are the lunatics.These
are the people that the ultra-right are protecting with their tax policies.
These are the people that create the jobs that sustain our country. These people
are typically the brightest and best our country has to offer.Yes,
the successful are the lunatics....
I'm a Utah County conservative. I like her. I am glad she is coming. I would
love to see her. And I hope those who do see her are gracious. Park City is a
great locale. Why not Park City?
