The George W. Bush "Tax Cut for the Rich" just after he started the War of Opportunity in Iraq was the biggest cause of the USA financial mess and NOT the reasonable policies of Pres. Obama.

As with another poster, we don't know which Congressional District we are in because the lines split our city into 2 districts...thanks to rePublican gerrymandering "fairness" and I am tired of being put in the same district as right wing Utah county.

Oh here comes the "It's George Bush's fault" line again.

What reasonable policies has bo brought to the table? Pick one: There is the borrow $5 Trillion policy, the Start a war in Libya policy, Start a war in Uganda policy, Escalate the war in Iraq policy, Escalate the war in Afghanistan policy, Allow Iran to manufacture nuclear weapons policy, Israel go back to your pre-war borders policy, Lose $15 Billion to the auto industry policy, lose billions to solyndra (where he had stocks) policy, blame the white cambridge officer and then backtrack and try to give him a beer summit, the apologize for US greatness tour, offer govt aid to buy antennas for HD signal policy, lose a drone in Iran....oh wait a minute the one success when he personally led the Seal Team 6 into Bin Ladens hideout and shot him in the head; could you imagine those navy seals going in without baracks leadership? I bet they were soo scared until barack read his teleprompter and led them into battle.

C'mon bo is the worst president in our history!

Good luck Mia. We need you, a breath of fresh air in Utah politics and in Washington DC.


Mayor Love has done great things for the citizens of Saratoga Springs. The city was fiscal crisis until she turned it around. I certainly will throw my support behind her.


@VST. I don't live in Saint George but does that really matter? Remember the districts were drawn so both urban and rural interest were represented. That pretty much includes everyone in the state.

@Counter intelligence. I am not intolerant. My in laws hate me because I half Hispanic. The national GOP wants her to win, not because of her stance on the conservative issues but because she would be the first black republican women in congress.

Maybe you are embarrassed of Frank, Pelosi, Reid, etc but I am talking about people represent us in this state.

@Eddie. Yeah I have heard it all. Obama is a socialist, he wants to destroy America, blah blah. Exactly what entitlements are existence today that were not in existence 5, 10, 20 years ago? This is all politics and both sides play it.

I like her platform. She is extremely bright and as a mayor, yes she has had to run a city during a difficult financial times. I am glad she has her own police department.

Also, I am noticing the comments against her are not from her district, so they are innocuous. Plus, why focus on the color of her skin, instead of the content of her character.

Of course I am cheering for her. I am glad the GOP is cheering for her and supporting her. She sounds awesome and I want awesome people in Congress.

The fourth district was drawn by and for Carl Wimmer. It is good to see good people of both parties jumping into the fray . Everyone jumping in so far is an improvement over Mr Wimmer.

Not in that district - so I have no ax to grind. That said - go Mia! We can send another white male to blend in with the crowd, or we can send a black conservative woman who will stand out - i.e. when she says something, people will report on it and she might have a chance at some real influence. We need to shake up our own image as white bread Utah - sending her to Congress couldn't hurt.

Besides - I like the quote from her father starting with not taking handouts, and that she should give back. Much like my own father who told me countless times that "the world does not owe you a living". We need more independent people who can show others how it's supposed to be, instead of creating more dependent sheep.
