Re: one old man Ogden, UT"Government for sale!"Our
government wouldn't be for sale if the current administration hadn't
bungled their job so horribly. The perfect storm of mismanagement, corruption,
and foreign policy failures is coming together just in time for the
elections.I hear the the head of the Secret Service is in trouble
for lying about their sex scandal.
Redistricting can be a problem for some candidates. However, in this case,
Matheson had the choice of which he district he wanted to run in. He had a
choice and didn't picture he would have this Mayor to run against. She may
be only a Mayor of a small Utah town, but she has had to make some decisions
that impact on people where she lives within a short distance. Jim Matheson has
done some good things but has learned the Arlen Spectre type of politician
tactics in Washington, D.C. You have to come home at the end of the day and
look in the mirror. Even after a good night's sleep, you look in the
mirror. He bought into the Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi politics and Utahns
didn't necessarily like that approach. If it is a snake, you
may not want to pick it up or even be associated with it. It can bite you.
Nancy Pelosi depended on Jim Matheson as her ace in the hole. She knew when she
needed him and when she didn't. It is a little gamble with Mia
but we know what Jim has become in Washington.
A news item today caught my eye. It reported that Sarah Palin's PAC
donated some money (not much) to Mia Love's campaign.Then it
went on to say that Sarah had collected $833,900 from donors. They handed out
$54,500. The remaining $779,400 is what they are calling "expenses."Hey, Sarah is a staunch supporter of "Free Enterprise"
isn't she? Sounds like she just discovered one more way to capitalize on
her infamy and make even more money.But does she have any idea what
the word "Honesty" means?
$1 Million dollars -- [With no strings attached? --- ya, right! Can you say Gadiantons?]
In politics, you want to predict the winner? Follow the money. Mission
accomplished for Utah's GOP and their redistricting shananigans. Can we
start to call her Congressman Love?
Obama is the only one that bows, Mia doesn't need to
Utah observer - just be glad you are not a battle ground state, and an
independent voter. I personally get up to 25 calls a day from one group or
another.... and have stopped watching TV because of the endless political ads.
November can't come and go fast enough.
Just think how happy I would be if I were the local TV salesman at one of our
Utah TV stations raking in all this money because of this race. For us as
viewers, we get to watch these ads. The TV stations are smiling all the way to
the bank. It's an infusion of lots outside cash into our state. At least
we can keep that happy thought as we endure more and more political ads. Now we
know what a swing state goes through.....
Government for sale!Government for sale!Step right up
and buy your representative here!Government for sale!(When will we finally wise up and reform campaign funding and overturn
This close of an election so close to election day will be greatly determined by
coattails...I give love the edge with greater enthusiasm among Republican voters
and Obama's poor job/poll numbers just over 3 weeks away from the general
election. The only polls that puts Obama in good position for re-election are
those that have +9 democrat samples, yet voter enthusiasm in those same polls
goes clearly to republicans...you don't get a +9 turnout with a much higher
enthusiasm among likely voters. This will be interesting to see the final
Mia Love should be bowing down to Dick Armey and the Koch Brothers right now.You know she'll win, because she'll be swept into office by
the (R)oteVote --
