Mia Love, Mitt Romney, and Republicans in general seem to follow the same pattern of spouting lofty platitudes without providing realistic details on how to achieve their goals. Which leads a skeptical voter to conclude that they will say anything to gain power through political victory.

Her website used to have a lot more material about issues but her GOP Party handlers advised her to take most off since they didn't want that to be a problem with voters.

Great letter.

She is clearly just trying to get by with the R by her name rather than actually tell us of her plans.

Smoke and Mirrors.

We Utahns aren't foolish enough to fall for it, are we?

Heaven forbid that people might actually find out who she is and what she wants to do! Oh, HORRORS!!!!!

The same thing is true of Mitt.

I wish I lived in that district so I could vote against her.

But I'll have to be content with voting against Rob Bishop.

And that brings up a point -- if you live in the First Congressional District, make an effort to learn all you can about Donna McAleer.

She doesn't have the BIG MONEY behind her, so she faces a real lop-sided challenge in going up against the dollars Rob has behind him.

If you will try to learn more about Donna, you'll be much less likely to be defrauded by Rob.

Attackers attack. They give no reason. They just attack. They thonk that we are idiots who blindly believe their attacks. Did their education stop in kindergarten?

Mike Richards,

You just described Romney. Fascinating. Unfortunately, politicians have proved again and again that they do "thonk" we are idiots. Maybe we are.

"facile homilies"
Such an apt phrase to describe what we are seeing from politicians on all sides this year.

one old man,
I feel your pain. I live in the 3rd district. Haven't seen or heard an ad for either side, not even an annoying lawn sign. I really wonder if anyone is running for the House in the 3rd district. I guess I'll find out when I go vote. All I know is that I'm voting for the TSA.

@mike richards
you claim others are using low brow attacks but your comment would be what exactly, a well thought out and elegantly articulated response to the letter writer?

old man,

why does it not surprise me that you will be voting against someone rather than for his opponent?

ever tire of being so bitter?

Have any of you actually visited her website? Mike Richards? Lost? Have you?

Have any of you compared it to Jim Matheson's?

What a joke Ms. Love's website is. It tells you ABSOLUTELY nothing. No plans or positions on issues whatsoever.

A 3 part section of Fiscal Responsibility, Limited Government, and Personal Responsibility with vague content and absolutely no position on specific programs or issues is a JOKE of the most vile nature.

You know what it is? It's cowardly. It's Mickey Mouse. It's CLOWNISH. We don't need any more clowns in DC. We need real leaders who specifically tell us what they are going to do.

Last chance, Mia, why do you deserve our votes? Specifics please.

What is it about Mia Love that makes me want to throw a brick at my TV set everytime she comes on? It might be her smug "I'm better than Jim Matheson and I'm better than you" attitude. Love represents everything that is wrong with the Republican Party, and she'll only tip the the scales of imbalance further to the right. Without balance, we have one-party domination. Keep the balance - vote Matheson.
