Steve, I've heard that, but as I've tried to research the source, I've found several that indicate President Kimball may have been quoting President McKay when he said that.

I really am not sure. But it's still a very valid comment no matter where it came from.

Clearfield, UT

For the first time in mhy life I am voting against Hatch. Totally support term limits. Two terms in the Senate. Three four year terms in the house. Time for Hatch to retire. If three terms was to long for Moss then it should apply to Hatch to.

Hatch should be retired, but not because he used a common epithet, but because he has become a partisan dog whistler for the extremist Tea Party croud. As such he will not be in any position to work across the isle.

"....the use of any profanity only shows, "A lack of culture." A man of Hatch's supposed character, not to mention that he is a Priesthood holder, using such language is embarrasing."

I doubt that J. Golden Kimball would have even noticed.

Hard to understand why Senator Hatch uses words that General Authorties don't use. Especially to young people. Why is that?

"For the first time in my life I am voting against Hatch. Totally support term limits."

At this juncture, a vote against Hatch ONLY imposes a "term limit" on him... one lone Senator.

But that will do NOTHING to eliminate the "good old boys" club in D.C.

Hatch --by himself-- is NOT the problem; it's the D.C. fat-cats group in it's entirety that's the problem.

A cancer patient with four tumors does no good to only have ONE of those tumors removed!

If we (The People of Utah) vote out Hatch now, the rest of the "cancer" still remains, and Utah only LOSES position and power on the totem-pole of politics.

Term limits on ALL members of Congress is the ONLY solution. We've GOT to get term limits in place!!

No matter how mad you are at Hatch, or tired of him or dislike him, DON'T vote against him now!

So sad that a representative of our government and a member of the church uses language that should embarrass him.

Re: The Real Maverick Orem, UT
"Get Hatch Out!"

Unlike Obama Sen. Hatch is still going to be around after Nov. 6th.

Apparently those concerned with Sen. Hatch's language haven't been in a high school in the last decade. The language student's use would make a drunken sailor blush.

How many of the commenters above that express concern over Hatch's language condone premarital sex among high school age students?

His first comment is unfortunately true. But does that mean Hatch should not be an example?

His second is completely ludicrous. I doubt very much if ANY posters of any kind condone that. This is one splendid example of his continual attempts to demonize people who disagree with him.

Just because foul language is used in the high schools doesn't mean it is ok to hear it elsewhere. Young people need a good example, not a fellow foul mouth.

"His second is completely ludicrous."

My first was a comment. My second was a question. And yes, there is a difference.

Where an estimated 75% of girls have engaged in premarital sex by age 19 my question may not be quite as ludicrous as some of the liberals would like to admit.

Farmington, UT

Ho hum. Hatch has always been crusty.

Don't see the big shake up over the Dept. of Ed.. Eliminating Dept. of Ed. would probably improve education as it becomes state work instead of Federal waste. For all the tax $ spent- US education continues to crumble along with the family.

Rifle, question or comment -- no matter. The idea that "liberals" condone, and by implication encourage premarital sex among teenagers is still ludicrous. That's no different than someone claiming that all conservatives are encouraging people like Timothy McVeigh.


This newspaper is such a partisan propaganda. I'm new to SLC & Utah. Never have I come across such blatant pandering & ridiculous bias in order to please its base.

Sandy, UT

"We'll have the only two conservative black people in the whole country and they're both terrific," Hatch said referring to Love and Florida Congressman Allen West.

I guess Hatch doesn't get out much. There are plenty of other "conservative black people" in this country, but you do have to get out of your mansion on the white hill to find them.

I love how the Republicans are always complaining about the Democrats' focus on race but the first chance they get to tout their "black" conservatives they jump all over it. Who doesn't doubt that Mia Love would be getting zero attention from the Republicans if she weren't black. In other words, for Republicans it's actually ALL about race.

And this is coming from somebody who will vote for Romney, not because of race, religion or anything else, other than he is most qualified.

No so. It isn't people's lip service but their behavior that determines what they condone, the statistics on promiscuous casual sex among high school age students can't be denied, and while this may come as a shock to some ...... these folks aren't flocking to the Republican party.

Draper, UT

I think Mia is doing a great job at bringing up the tough issues. We have some serious spending problems and I'm glad she is explaining them to the younger generation. There is nothing wrong with being conservative, especially when representing Utah's values. She is going to ensure that the U.S does not crumble from debt, while Jim Matheson seems satisfied with the status quo.

You would not BELIEVE how much money is wasted in the military industrial complex and how you, the taxpayer, are making millionaires left and right of those people who are contracting with our military and they thank you from the bottom of their hearts, right after they write out those checks to the politicians who threw money their way.

By the way, Mia Love's family immigrated here and were poor, but took advantage of our taxpayers' generosity to get where they are. She got on the boat and wants to pull up the ramp so others cannot climb on too.

Education is not the place to make cuts.

Why not out source Congress to China? I bet we can get Congressman for $10,000 a year and a Senator for $15,000 without health care benefits? We might get more work out of them, too.

Most Congressmen wear Chinese suits, Chinese ties, Chinese shoes, and Chinese made underwear, so why not just put a Chinese person in all the Chinese clothes and call it a day.

Hearing Obama waring a Chinese suit, shirt, pant, and shoes talking about Romney investments in China is funny.

America a strange town demanding minimum wage for ourselves, but not others in the world.

Talking about Chinese investments being bad while wearing Chinese clothes.

How long will China keep taking printing press money? We should really outsource Congress and get right to socialism.

What we need world minimum wage? That would put all Americans back to work, because there would be no 12 cent an hour labor to build iphones.

Rice andlow mein in the White instead of potatoes and beef. Cheaper and healthier.
