    Mr. Bennett what companies want is less red tape, lower taxes. In Europe the answer is higher taxes and austerity.

    @Mormon Conservative...stop trying to turn everything into a conspiracy. Most of us are with you when you say that you do not agree with Mr. Bennett. I agree that Mr. Bennett needed to leave. I agree that Mr. Hatch needs to go as well. Leave it at that, and you win. Play the "everyone's out to get my guy" card and people roll their eyes.

    Obama is going to borrow us to economic recovery. It's really pretty simple but only smart liberals can understand it . Yes sir - more borrowing and spending is what is needed and the more the better. Raise income taxes, promise unbounded entitlements , borrow from China and spend like crazy. Hey it worked for Greece didn't it???

    You have something there with the whole Bain owning Clear Channel angle.

    Is it just me or is it ironic that Clear Channel is one of the 3 major players in SLC radio; isn't it?

    The whole anti-Romney agenda put forth by the media reeks of a weasel like duplicity.

    You don't have to be Jerry Fletcher or George Nada (look it up) to see a swerve like no other coming down the pipe. It'll be so good that the writing teams for Impact on Spike & WWE will be envious.

    For the record, Mitt is one of them. Look no further than his tax returns & Ivy League degree

    This ia a pretty good analysis as far as it goes, but it does not go far enough. Things won't really get better for the majority until the long stagnant overall reall wage rate starts to climb. This is always the invisible dimension for Republicans, though I think Senator Bennett is a good man - he just can't see the whole picture (but then most of us can't).

    Here's something EX-Sen. Bennett don't lecturer about political stability at the University of Utah's Hinckley Institute of Politics that cures our problems. Because Newt had something to do with the housing market crash, Romney discusses housing woes with Tampa area residents. Twelve hours before he was stand toe-to-toe with two other Republican presidential candidates, Mitt Romney sat down with eight Tampa Bay area residents to chat about their problems. As dozens of reporters clicked away on laptop computers and photographers tapped shutters?. Something smells fishy in the meat market. Bain Capital Owns Clear Channel (Romney Supported by Talk Show) along with Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Michael Savage, etc. under umbrella company that candidate Mitt Romney headed. Some cynics have even suggested that pro-Romney callers on conservative shows have actually been well-paid propagandists reading from a prepared script. That's almost as bad as Kentucky US Senator Rand Paul detained by TSA officials at Nashville International Airport. Ron Paul tweeted that his son was detained for refusing a full body pat down. Paul lives in Bowling Green, KY, and is the son of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul in case you didn't know already.
