But political experts doubt he'll be running for any state office
Yes, we are happy you are there, and NMBY.
Please, If Romney were President right now his business cronies would be
fleecing America. Just like the last Republican administration. Mitt was on
the record for ADDING 2 TRILLION to defense spending ON TOP of what the
Department of Defense asked for. Mitt would not have cut spending. 2 TRILLION,
are you kidding me?
@ POPSWe already have the government we deserve, and you're
right, it isn't pleasant.
airnaut: bitter and unhappy and dont understand the difference between tax
evasion and tax avoidance.
PatuniababiAre you proud of the scandal-ridden White House
administration we have in place now? Wouldn't see that if Romney occupied
the people's house.
Having Mitt and Ann up here in January and then having either of them rushed to
the Hospital due to the Northern Utah's notorious Winter Inversion layer
will shame the powers-that-be into getting off the dime to solve Utah's
seasonal air quality problem. I'd also like to eventually sell my $ million
plus cracker box house in SoCal and retire up there too.
Iva BigginIs his not being able to build his own house (and having to pay
some to do it) supposed to be an insult to him?I don't
understand what you're getting at.I didn't build my own
house either... does that mean I'm sub-par or something?
@ Furry1993, Ogden, UT - Jon Huntsman, Jr., would be ideal. Rational,
intelligent, caring for everyone (not ust the affluent) mainstream, and good
contacts with the people who can get things done. And, to appeal to the majority
of people in Utah, a Republican.Wrong.Jon Hunstman, Jr,
unlike his father, lacks a spine and a moral compass. The 2012 campaign proved
that: "Governor Huntsman, are you a Mormon?" Governor:
Man, oh man, oh man!.....how I wish our country would have been wise enough to
have elected Mitt Romney as our President.How long, Lord, until you
come and straighten out the mess created by foolish and evil people?....
I'm glad to welcome the Romneys to Utah. They're wonderful people - I
would love to have them as neighbors!I bet Mitt does know how to
hold a hammer. Seriously, people, he's a regular guy who happens to have a
large bank account. And by having others build his house, it increases
employment and boosts the local economy. Would you prefer that he take his money
somewhere else?A lot of people fail to recognize what a sacrifice it
was for them to have Mitt run for the presidency, both financial and personal.
They don't deserve the smearing and hate that was directed toward them (and
which apparently will never end). Do you ever wonder why most decent people
won't run for office? It should be obvious. Why would any decent person
want to subject themselves and their loved ones to the lies and hate? If we
don't change the tone of things, we're going to get the government we
deserve and it isn't going to be pleasant.
Does anyone truly care where they live? It is wonderful what he did with the
Olymics but I would guess that most Utahns do not relate to them with the money
they have, multiple homes, lifestyle, and circles they run in.
Welcome back to Utah Mitt! You will love living there! The best citizens and
the best university (BYU) resides there. Consider teaching at BYU. I am sure
BYU would want you! Also consider using your political and leadership
experience to continue helping the United States with their political problems.
Don't get out of politics because of Obama. The United States of America
needs you! It is hard, but you can do it. Don't give up on this!
Mitt Romney is building a house?! LOL You mean he is PAYING to have a house
built. I doubt the man has any idea how to hold a hammer.
With all the bad things happening in D.C. I guess Romney should be glad he
didn't win. After all, the Obama people say they had nothing to do with
any of it, so it should be obvious that Mitt would have had Benghazi, and the
IRS scandle, and spying on the press, ect. All this stuff would have happened
to President Romney just as they did to President Obama. Amazing how the person
with the most responsiblity has so many dogs eating his homework. "....the
White House dogs name should be changed to Checkers". (Dennis Miller).
Romney isn't building a new house. He is paying someone to do it. I doubt
he knows what a hammer is for.
Can't wait to we start hearing about the Mitt sightings and encounters.
But, I bet only 53% of us get that opportunity.
Irony GuyYour attempts to smear people with stuff you KNOW isn't true
never ceases to amaze me. You must live your life in a world of political
stereotypes (and really believe them).You say Mitt pays no taxes.
Every person knows Mitt pays a huge amount in taxes. It may not be a high
enough percentage for your likeing, but it's every cent our current tax law
requires.His 2011 tax returns were made public. He paid $1,935,708
in income taxes. You call that paying no taxes? His effective tax rate was
14.1%. I agree that's very low. But it's hardly "no
taxes".You may also be shocked to learn that Mitt donates a lot
to charity... Mitt donated 29% of his income to charity in 2011 ($4 Million).
Obama donated a miserly 1% of his income to charity from 2000-2007 (total
$10,772). Your hero Joe Biden donated 0.3$ of his income to charity the 10
years leading up to the 2008 election.You can smear Mitt with your
false statements (and I'm sure some nuts will believe you) but political
stereotypes are not truth.
Jon Huntsman, Jr. not just the affluent, LOL! He's not even on the radar
for me. I would never vote for him. He is another Liberal RINO Republican. He
turned against Utahns way of thinking before he even left the Governor's
office. NO, no no to Jon, Jr.!
What in the world could possibly be wrong with living the multi million dollar
Pacific Ocean view dream home in La Jolla?Romney let go of the very fine
Deer Valley, Utah, mansion a while back.Rather a very financially
comfortable vagabond family, it seems.
Great. Now he can pay no taxes in Utah.
Oh, Oh!My heart be still!
We all know Willard is being coy when it comes to income taxes. There is probably is some balance when it comes to property taxes for all his
Mitt having a house in Utah is news?Earlier this week deficit was
announced to be lowest since 2008.Greenspan says Mitt would have
cost the country 25% more than the current president. Seems we are
happy Mitt is in Utah.
I guess it would be nice to have enough money to build a house any where you
wanted any time you felt like it!
@Nan BW 9:54 p.m. May 15, 2013For any of you who are glad Mitt is
not at the White House, have you checked the news for things that are going on
under the thumb of the White House occupant?--------------------Bad as President Obama is, and I have never had much use for him, Mitt
would have been infinitely worse.
I'd be happy to have Mitt in Utah. He'd fit in, there'd be
plenty of Utahns who'd be happy to have him there, and the DN obviously
hangs on his every word and move. It would be a love fest.
For any of you who are glad Mitt is not at the White House, have you checked the
news for things that are going on under the thumb of the White House occupant?
@cats"...Wow! Some people sure are bitter and
unhappy...".see ute alumni; sg; You're welcome!
@2 bits 6:14 p.m. May 15, 2013Jon Huntsman, Jr., would be ideal.
Rational, intelligent, caring for everyone (not ust the affluent) mainstream,
and good contacts with the people who can get things done. And, to appeal to
the majority of people in Utah, a Republican.
I doubt Mitt is positioning himself for Congress. All they do is talk,
posture, argue and spend. Mitt is a leader, not a talker. He'd make a
TERRIBLE Senator. Governors rarely transition to Congress. Same
goes for successful business leaders. They're too used to leading to just
go out and do the party's bidding and waste time talking endlessly.We do need to find somebody to replace Senator Hatch though... any
to Cats 4:43 p.m today... And some people are acting like a 12 yr
old girl at a Boy band concert at this "news".Maybe we can
get Dick H's spin on how this will positively impact byu football this
Glad your back in the intermountain west. We appreciate all you, Ann and your
family have done for our country. Thank you much.
Dear Mitt,So glad you will be here near Zion. Wish you had won the
election, America would be in much better condition. At least you would have
made some much needed effort. Best wishes to you and your Family.
Airnaut: Wow! Some people sure are bitter and unhappy.Welcome
We love Mitt and Ann Romney. Welcome to Utah. We hope to see you at some of the
stellar events here. We, also, wish you were on Pennsylvania Avenue. Whatever
the reason for building a home here, welcome!Go Cougars!
CatsSomewhere in Time, UTDear Mitt:Welcome home.
We're happy to have you.===========Mitt was born
and raised in Michigan.And has lived in Massachucetts since 1975.He has only been a "resident" of Utah once in his life, 1999 - April
2000, and only did so to get a $54,000 tax break on his house in Park
City, Utah by stating it as his "primary residence".And he
STILL had to fight, deny and legally challenge that, since it disqualified him
from running for Governor of Massachucetts in 2002.Utah, Home?Hardly - it's just another vacation house for tax evasion.Just like
his house in [LaJolla] SanDiego, CA.
Any where he lives is fine with me as long as it's not at 1600 Pennsylvania
Do everybody in Utah a favor and stay in Boston or New Hampshire or San Diego or
wherever you live these days...he wouldn't have been any better in the
White House than Obama.
It's good to have him back. I wish him nothing but the best. For the
country it is unfortunate that he is not sitting in the White House rather than
it's current occupier. Romney would have done much good than who we have
now. Wish there was a push for a nationwide recount.
Mitt's family pays buku taxes. So this is a good thing for the State or
anybody with kids in Utah Schools.I can't see anything negative
in his family moving back to Utah (even for a short time). But I'm sure
somebody out there will find a way to spin it towards the negative.
I wonder did Stan (M) & Francine (A) Smith bring Roger, Hailey, Klaus, &
Maybe you would like to be Governor?
It looks like Mitt is positioning himself for a run at the senate.
Utah is good, but I wish he was living at 1600 Pennsylvania Washington DC.
Please don't give obama any ideas of moving here, unless it is in the next
couple of years.
Getting ready to take Orrin's job?
Me Too! I wish you had stayed here after the Olympics, but we're glad to
have you now!
Dear Anne:Sorry I forget to welcome you, too. We're really
happy to have you.
Dear Mitt:Welcome home. We're happy to have you.
