@ Doug10Do the numbers 41 & 43 ring a bell?
How much actual time has Josh Romney spent in Utah? Does he understand
Utah's needs and people? Has he made connections with Utah's minority
groups? Has he worked on the land? Has he built anything in Utah? Have his
children attended Utah schools?
Some of the super wealthy with more money than god pamper themselves with luxury
mansions, autos , etc.,but most sooner or later will want to buy a position in
politics where they can hover over and control others and to build monuments to
themselves. Thankfully, there are some that do good with their great riches; so
far this doesn't seem to be the case with the Romney's money. Theirs
is mostly a self interest enterprise.
is there any doubt he won't, he's second generation daddies boy.
There are so many excellent candidates in Utah, perhaps he should move to Las
Vegas and unseat Harry Bird. Just a thought....

"[Romney] would win in Utah on name recognition alone?" Are we talking
about America's representative government, or about an hereditary
monarchy?I'm a poll worker. Over the years, I've observed
that simple people, who tell you how they plan to vote, frequently choose based
on name recognition. When the mind goes, familiar comforts are all they have
left. Now to claim that a whole state would vote that way ...
In the land of legacies, Josh's aspirations certainly make sense. In a
world where science and truth matter (read "climate change") why have a
light weight like Swallow, Shurtleff and now, Romney?
Is this what the people of Utah want as a platform? Recognition on name alone.
What about real issues facing Utahans
John Stockton was a great basketball player and although his son played high
school and college ball doesn't look like he will fill his fathers
shoes.Not sure the story is that much different in politics
Name recognition could get you elected, but that shouldn't be the whole
story, should it? Nor does having a well-known name guarantee "honor and
integrity". After all, Nixon was pretty well known by the time he was
Josh would do well to run to city council, school board, or mayor before trying
to go big. He would have more credibility to be a leader if he had some actual
I wish he would run against Mia Love instead of campaigning for her. I
can't stand her and I think he would be much better.
He should do it! He would win in Utah on name recognition alone. I think it
would be good for our long term development.
Too much of a neocon. His fathers Bush style politics are obsolete. He needs to
be more like Rand Paul or he doesn't have a prayer of winning. RINO politics won't do anything for America.
Cris B: Why would we be so lucky? What would make him such a great candidate?
We can only pray we would be so lucky. Do it Romney!
He has already had his shadow in the scene and has thrown support for
individuals already. Hopefully, he will find his niche in our form of
Republican Party and what that means for a person with honor and integrity.
