How many times did Jim Matheson vote for non-Democratic house leadership?

How many times did Jason Chaffetz vote for non-Republican house leadership?

How many times did Rob Bishop vote for non-Republican house leadership?

That would be Zero, Zero, and Zero.

So, in response to your statement "that "a vote for Matheson is a vote for Pelosi" doesn't quite square with reality", really isn't such the departure from reality that you assert.

This election is about the direction of our country. It is about future generations and what kind of society they were inherit from us.

Each elected official becomes a member of a coalition in Washington. Unfortunately, those coalitions are currently formed around the two major political parties.

I vehemently disagree with the direction of the Democratic Party has taken us.

Therefore, my vote goes to Mia Love because she will be part of a coalition that seeks to reverse the direction we have been taken over the last six years.

Bluejean,
don't be too hard on Blue, he/she did not refer to Mia using a vulgar term for a woman's reproductive organs as did one of BO's large contributors in reference to Palin's daughter. Of course, the left was perfectly happy with that slur, because, after all, it was a conservative woman he was slurring.

Bluto: Since twelve years is long enough for Jim, how do you feel about the 36 years of Orrin Hatch?

Six years from now the Republicans will choose someone else to fill Hatch's shoes. Democrats need not apply.

Who really cares? I, personally, think Matheson's experience is much more valuable than Love's lack of experience, but in the end it won't matter which one gets to Washington.

Your facts and figures remind me of the saying: “Liars figure and figures lie”. Throwing around percentages will never win you one single convert. Fact of the matter is that Nancy Pelosi needed Matheson's re-election in her unrealistic bid to regain her position as Speaker of the House. Guess she'll just have to look elsewhere.

Jim is an incumbent! New members will do a lot more for the benefit of this country than incumbent if for no other reason than they won't have as much time to be corrupted by the system. That goes for Mia as well as Jim. Incumbents all say that they are a voice of reason for the country, except that there is no reason going on in Washington D.C., only protection of the status quo and an ever growing mess! Vote Jim Matheson out. He should resign and say thank you Utahns. If not,boot'im!
