    The Liberal Democrats and their hip pocket media that is to protect people's rights not entitlements have normal people exactly where they want them, sort of like a lot of the posters.

    People believe that they don't make a difference and they won't speak out to the people that have them by the ankles. People do make a difference.

    Mia Love is so much under attack for doing something in the past. She makes decisions as a city mayor.

    Jim Matheson doesn't make decisions except to run for 4th District and even that may have been a mistake for him as it appears now.

    His dad made decisions as a Governor. Jim has become a Washington D.C. person and doesn't know how to know what Utahns want. He is polarized without realizing the magnetic force has got him and he doesn't know how to get out into the field of life and see people living.

    Government cannot be the force. People are the force. Government is a power unto itself and doesn't feel for people.

    They make decisions and then force peopl to live under their mandates. People are at a loss.

    "With swinging polls making the White House race as unpredictable as ever..."

    Actually the polls are only swinging one way. That's called a trend.

    Democrats are using Big Bird and Republicans should use Oscar. Should be an entertaining fininsh. I suggest taking a seat in the balcony with the two old geezers to watch the entertainment.

    It is interesting the term is called flip flopping when used by a democrat but when a republican does it lets call it adjusting.

    You bet an intelligent person changes his/her mind when more information comes to light.
    However when no new information has been learned and the person changes his ideals to win over an audience for cash and or votes it is because of a lack of character and integrity. Mitt's lack of integrity makes him the exact tool that grover norquist described him as-NOT a thinker just someone with enough digits to sign what we tell him to.

    Here we are at 1 month to election day and Pres. Obama is considering running a Big Bird ad when the issues are the economy and jobs. While very much undecided until this last debate, I find less and less listening to Pres. Obama and what amounts to be excuses for promises he made and yet could not deliver on. The more reading I have done over the past few months regarding those individuals who have left the Obama administration, I find a President who's plan is "my way or the highway" when dealing with others. I am not a fan of a socialistic society. I believe that as the Obama presidency has been in place over the past 3-4 years, this is exactly where he wants the country to go. I also now see a President who is in panic mode. His recent visit to San Francisco was well documented regarding the panic that we now see. I no longer believe that Pres. Obama has the understanding of the economy or of our society to lead us in the right direction. We need someone who can hit the ground running and knows how the economy works.

    It is interesting the term is called flip flopping when in reality it should be called adjusting. Gaining more and better information allows a person with a brain to adjust and either modify or change an initial position. We could only be so lucky if the current president would adjust to the mounting problems within the government, but that has not happened. The promises that were made four years ago have not been realized and the current president will not adjust to the changing situations to make them better.

    Sounds like Romney is leaving his conservative ideals behind in favor of his previous moderate policies. Of course, this could always change. Mitt Romney's frequent policy change confusion appears to carry on from week to week.
    Mitt Romney will certainly go down in history for his flip-flopping behavior.
    Will being a "ModerateMitt" provide a win for him on election day, or......will Romney be in lots of trouble with the Ultra Right Wing moneymen who have financially supported him?
    How will he repay these people should he attain his long awaited goal? These wealthy, powerful individuals expect preferential treatment from Mr. Romney, should Mitt be elected.
    Does Anne Romney really run the whole campaign after all?
