it is amusing to watch people not just walk but run away from the tea party.

Provo, UT

You can tell Love is still a tea partier - she's so far right she doesn't know what she stands for.

If you take money from Freedom Works or any other financial backer of the Tea Party faction, then you are justly labeled as a Tea Party politician. If Mia wants to truly distance herself from the Tea Party, then she needs to distance herself from their money and the controlling influence it brings with it.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck...

Tea Party types were instrumental in Mia Love making it past the primaries in the last elections. It would be very unfortunate if she cast away their support and distanced herself from them now.

Centerville, UT

"Mia Love rejects tea party label".

Apparently she's going with the "start your campaign with a massive lie" strategy. Interesting move.

Provo, UT

Some people run because they want to make a difference. Other people run because they want to sail the current political winds to victory, whatever those winds may be.

Mia tried riding the hard-core tea party wave last time and lost.

Now she is simultaneously trying to copy Matheson's long-time message of ("I don't believe in labels") while bringing in Allen West--one of the most uncivil tea party politicians in America.

Since I'm a pretty moderate, Jello-O eating, Utahn, I think I'll stick with Matheson. Now, if the GOP nominated a mainstream, Reagan Republican they might make it exciting but in this non-Presidential year I think a candidate like Mia Love is toast.

Mia says she is not "Tea Party", but she shows up on stage with Allen West? Who is she kidding?

Maybe after Mia loses to Matheson for a second time, she and Sarah Palin can hook up and become Tea Party running mates somewhere. Two peas in a pod.

Springville, UT

So Mia is distancing herself from the Tea Party. Well she's young and inexperienced in politics. She's trying to fit in and doesn't quite know what to believe.

It's happening on the other side of the aisle as well.

I guess Bill Clinton and Diane Feinstein are not true liberals anymore either now that they are distancing themselves from Obama and his lies about keeping your health care plan.

So it's looking like Mike Lee and Ted Cruz were right all along, this healthcare plan is really so bad that Dems are now bailing out of it too and Dems have given 'fearless leader' an ultimatum to fix it.

It appears that the chickens are coming home to roost. Every Dem needs to be roasted slowly over hot coals for supporting this mess.

And today's news... 1 million Californians with healthcare pink slips?

Get your surfboard Mia, this is going to be a wave you will not want to miss!

Surf's up!

Mia Love is just another politician who sees a route to stuff the family larder. Yawn.

West Valley City, Utah

When the mainstream media decides to launch and orchestrated and full scale attack on a group, most low-information voters follow along like sheep. Information is carefully selected and presented to the public in a slanted and highly prejudiced way. Even a slew of major scandals are minimized and certainly not given the same media coverage as a "republican scandal" be Pretty tough for any conservative to withstand these often highly personal attacks. Its called "demonizing dissent". The many forms of socialism have failed pathetically time and time again all over the world. We are still hearing the same tired and empty rhetoric and empty promises. Poor people are suffering much more under Pres. Obama. GWB at least gave seniors RX coverage reform that worked, though also very expensive. Even liberals like Jon Stewart are catching on to the absurdities and incompetence of Obamacare. Republican ideas on HC were not given a place at the table. This is the democrat parties train wreck.

And just what does Jim Matheson bring to utah? Not much I'm afraid. While I am not a tea party person, please explain what is wrong to saying no to more taxes, more spending and more government? Less would be better.

Salt Lake City, UT

Government shutdown cost the US Taxpayer $24 billion dollars.

Now that conservatives are feeling the backlash of wasting more of American tax payer money…

they suddenly don't want to take responsibility for their actions.

Salt Lake City, UT

$4 trillion spent on Iraq.

$24 billion dollar government shutdown.

Reagan tripled the national debt.

W. Bush doubled the debt.

You are against big spending?

Vote Democrat.

Salt Lake City, UT

How does it feel to be a Token?

After the Republican party has abandoned you?

Glendale, AZ

Mia, you don't like the Tea Party because they are a party of "No?" We need more parties of "No!" We need more representatives with the guts to say "NO!" Like NO to Obamacare. (Would've been good if they said that years ago before it was passed.) NO to amnesty. NO to illegal immigration. NO to higher taxes. NO to funding failing "alternative" and "renewable" energy frauds. NO to unconstitutional appointees. NO to IRS illegal harassment of conservative groups. NO to Benghazi cover ups. NO to a lot more things.

And more in particular, NO to politicians who waffle, change their affiliation, and become ashamed of who they are and trying to become in vogue with what the "popular" view seems to be. Those kind of politicians show no integrity. Which is what you did, Ms. Love. So NO to you.

Cruz and Lee campaigned specifically on stopping Obamacare and were elected because of it. They never backed down. And in spite of despicable people of both parties, politicians and the populace being childish and calling them names, they stuck with it. That is integrity.

St George, UT

So many people blindly trust what the lying liberal media has said about the Tea Party. Why is it so hard for so many people to understand that all the Tea Party is, is a group of people that believe in the Constitution, the founding of this country and believe in freedom? TEA=Taxed Enough Already. So REPUBLICANS supported by the Tea Party movement used their constitutional power of the budget to try and stop one of the must destructive laws of modern history. I really don't see a problem with that and now I start to wonder if the 5 million people losing their health insurance are starting to wish they succeeded.

West Jordan, UT

I don't believe her. She is a tea partier and will always be one. By definition she will and always has advocated for dangerous government policies.

Saint George, UT

I have no idea what the "tea party" stands for, but if the democrats and the republicans are proud of where they have brought this country, then those who support them must be the most extreme of all.
