As Bill Clinton said: "It's the economy stupid". With Obama sitting in the White House voters in Utah have no intention of sending a Democrat to the Senate in November. Mr. Howell is a decent man but his party just doesn't represent the values of a majority of Utahns.

Actually, if Utahns would shut up and actually listen to what Mr. Howell has to say and then thoughtfully consider his words, most would be quite surprised to discover that he really does represent the values of a majority of us.

Unfortunately, too many Utahns are completely incapable of thinking deeply enough to get past the big R beside Uncle Orrin's name or the D beside that of Mr. Howell.

Actually most Utahns do believe that Mr. Howell does represent the values of a majority of us. Problem is with his party and not with him. We have no intention of supporting the party that believe that "If you've got a business, you didn't build that."

"one old man" exemplifies the big problem with the extreme left.

They want everyone to shut up so only thier views are heard,

they will demand those other to fired, for the power of government or the courts to control them, they use political correctness to silence others, they name call, they belittle, they mock (for the last three just look at replies to any article about Glenn beck or fox news or eagle forum and any other conservative voice, and see how they minimize any religious or conservative person or group or study, etc.), they even use violence (see conservative voices being silenced at colleges and other public forums),

I have just touched the tip of the ice berg.

Nay lets not silence voices.

I tremble to think the left thinks silencing others is a good thing.

I agree with "rifleman" the party is the problem. (even matheson shows you can not get away from the party, at least not without permission)

Sen. Hatch totally misrepresented the facts. If anyone bothers to research the numbers they will find out what Scott Howell is saying is true. The Center for Budget, Policy and Priorities is a good first place to look. Their numbers will confirm it. The Republican plan will favor the top 2% and the so called job creators.
