    Hasn't Orrin been in the Senate long enough? At age 76, does he really need to rule for 40 years? Of course Orrin can do the, "I'm the conservative you NEED in DC," dance for a year or 2 leading up to his election and then go on doing whatever the lobbyists pay him to do for another 6 years.

    I'd much rather have someone who represents Utah rather than Orrin -"I'll write big-ag bills and gross copyright abuse for Hollywood before I'll stand up for Utah's local farmers and growing tech industry" -Hatch. So Hatch saw the writing on the wall and tacked right this year; It doesn't change the fact that Good-old-Boy networked Republicans like Hatch and Romney will be called out when they sell the American people out to vested corporate interests.

    He could get a score of 120 (not possible) and still not be conservative enough for the Utah delegates at the nominating convention- in fact he could be declared the "most conservative man alive" and it would still not be conservative enough

    Has he written any more songs about Ted Kennedy? Maybe he's working on one for Nancy or Harry? Does he want to speak at the next Democrat convention as he did last time? He's doing the right things now, but his heart is with Ted. He will not be tough on judicial nominees and always rolls over for any Democrat. Anyone who would cozy up with a Kennedy is not fit to represent Republicans in Congress.
