Re: 4444 SALT LAKE CITY, UTTimes they are a changin as proved by
Gov. Walker in Wisconsin. It is starting to look like Obama doesn't have
what it takes to lead our country, is going to be a one term president, and is
going to take down a lot of Democrats with him when he goes. It
takes money to take down an incombent and Mia Love isn't going to fight
with one hand tied behind her back!!
Here we go again! How many millions of dollars have the wise souls at the NRCC
thrown towards beating Congressman Matheson over the years? They should realize
that those who can be brainwashed by a barrage of silly, non-substantive,
overly-simplistic, often inaccurate political propoganda in Utah are already
brainwashed and then some. Those that aren't brainwashed will never be.
Save your money! Since I have been gerrymandered out of Congressman
Matheson's district, or, better stated, he out of mine, perhaps I will not
receive the garbage from the NRCC that has been mailed to me in the past (there
are now three congressional districts within two miles of my home in the middle
of the Salt Lake valley - sheer genius, Utah Legislature!). I suppose I will
keep television viewing to a minimum as well, in order to avoid the mindless
NRCC-bred and sponsored advertisements. Congressman Matheson has been a
fabulous representative for me and my family. A voice of moderation,
consistency, independence, and fiscal responsibility for many years. Those who
have the opportunity to vote for him would be wise to do so. He is the best
thing Utah has going for it in Washington.
Nice, Ranch, how about another slur against Mormonism? For someone who demands
recognition and respect for his views and lifestyle, you seem very unwilling to
@Samwise;"One bad Democratic congressman out, one excellent
Republican congresswoman in."Are you peering at the stone in
your hat? How do you know that Love is "one excellent Republican
congresswoman"? She hasn't even held the job yet.
Only $1,000,000?The NRCC must have Utah written down as a sure
thing.Mix in Ryan's penchant for vague sloganeering clarified
by ambiguous specifics.Add a swarm of deer flies to give the
faithful a memorable day at Glenwild.Marvelous.
@sdreader: I find it unbelievable that people don't also know that under
Socialist, Marxist, Stateist, Liberal, Democrat, Progressive systems people are
not equal either. In fact, under their systems unless you are part of the Elite
you have no chance or opportunity to advance because the heavy tax burden keeps
you down. At least with freedom and capitalism people have a chance to escape.
And CHS 85 I know I was better off with trickle down and although you site the
traditional liberal BS about it, I know of hundreds of economists who would
disagree with you, for instance, Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams who just
happen to be black.
I find it unbelievable that there are still people (Democrats) who believe in
big government, welfare state solutions. Europe is collapsing before your eyes.
There will always be inequality when you have freedom and capitalism. Let us
start supporting the producers and job creators and not the dead-beats who are
always taking. Stop supporting anyone who will not cut back significantly on
our federal government overreach. WE ARE BORROWING 40 cents of every dollar we
spend. The national Democrats want to spend more. Matheson ultimately will
stand with Pelosi and Reid on these issues. Elect Mia. She is one more vote to
reign in our out-of-control federal government.
After reading the posts by liberals criticizing people like Mike Lee and Jason
Chaffetz, I'm more convinced than ever that Mia Love is the right choice,
and would be a great addition to the team that's trying to retrieve the
country before we go completely over the cliff with deficits, regulation,
invasions (of this homeland, and ours around the globe), socialism,
micro-management by Big Brother and Super Nanny, and everything else that's
destructive. She isn't experienced in Washington, which is a plus; people
from outside the beltway hopefully still have some semblance of sanity left, and
haven't been indoctrinated with the idea that elected officials are somehow
way brighter than the rest of us just because they win elections. Plus,
she's lots cuter than Matheson. Term limits, by the way, have to happen at
the ballot box.
@Danish AmericanI find it ironic that there are still people left
who believe in "trickle-down" economics and cutting taxes for the rich
will provide jobs and a stable middle-class.
To liberals who complain about Bush. He did spend way too much money--no doubt
about it. That why we need more fiscal conservatives. The government has to
stop spending money and cut back to the services they were Constitutionally
mandated to cover. I really find it ironic that those who criticize Bush
don't realize that Obama is just Bush on steroids.
The clueless novelty candidate being bought and controlled by the Washington
establishment. It won't be good, folks.
You are racists or sexists if you don't vote for Mia.At least
that is what the democrats should be discussing. Get another old wrinkly white
rich congressman out, right?
Right field is exactly what our country needs. Mia Love will adhere to the
Constitution and reign in Obama (and Bush's) out-of-control spending.
I think those of you opposing Matheson don't really follow politics and
happenings in Washington. Matheson is a doer and has for the most part
represented Utah in a very responsible, daresay it, conservative manner, at
least on the fiscal front. He's one of the few bright spots that we have
in Washington where political stalemates and gamesmanship are the standard and
nobody cares about moving forward. Mia Love seems like a fine person to me but
she's a far cry from one of our most successful representatives to date.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Matheson has served his state with some degree of competence and independence,
but has always struggled to walk straight between the leftward national drag of
his party preference and the desires of the Utah centrists he needs to re-elect
him. As well, there's the sense that despite his much experience,
he's out of steam and very low on originality in a season of exigency.
Love is obviously wet behind the ears, but has made an admirable start of her
career, and has taken huge strides with the electorate with her interesting
background and straightforward narrative. In today's environment, she
needs only to better introduce herself and reassure voters of her capacity for
office in order to enjoy broader confidence. This funding support will surely
help; but name recognition, incumbency, and unabashed partisanship still divide
the public.Between the two, I think Utahns will be ably represented
for another term.
Here comes the money. Everything I have heard about Mia Love is she is just
another ultra conservative ubstructionist like Mike Lee. We do not need another
representative from Utah who is not willing to solve our Nations problems. At
least Matheson is representing the moderate Utahn. I haven't always liked
the way Matheson voted but I'm afraid Mia Love will be way out in right
Matheson is barely a Democrat, but a thousand times better than another fiscally
conservative lee or self serving chaffetz, another do nothing republican is just
what Utah needs.I heard an interview with her on the radio, Not
impressive, unless you like hearing sean or rush or glenn repeated with the same
vagaries that conservative thrive on.
Another good reason to keep our television viewing to a minimum.
Hopefully Mia Love wins. Not only is she an excellent candidate, but if she wins
it means that Matheson will be gone, which is kind of like a double win. One bad
Democratic congressman out, one excellent Republican congresswoman in. I'm
all for it. Love 2012!
Hopefully Mia Love will be elected to this office. Six terms is enough for Rep.
Matheson. What would help Mia Love more than $1 million on TV ads would be a
visit from Obama in support of Matheson.
