The reason not to like her from the conservative and the liberal side has to do
with the fact that she is cut from the tea party cloth. She will not have a
discussion about making real progress and views her policies as principles, not
policies. That means that she will be the same as our current bunch of
representatives and waste her time voting on things that mean nothing because
they can't pass the senate and even if they did they would get vetoed. Now I understand that there are a bunch of people in the republican
party that support this policy. The Chaffetz crowd. He thinks he has been
productive by voting many many times to repeal Affordable Care. That has gotten
us nowhere. But, congratulations on sticking to your principles.We
are going to get more of that from Mia Love. I voted my principles but got
nothing done. Let's stop talking about policies as principles and be
practical legislators. This will continue to hurt the Republican Party and
conservatives in general if we send this type of politician to Washington.
Doesn't make sense. Very weird. Remember, Mittens was a big fan of Bob
Bennett too (now lobbying for Common Core). Also supports Hatch (who helped
bring you the judge who made gay marriage in Utah legal). Big gov't
Republicans, the whole lot. If Mitt supports her, stay the heck away!
It would be nice if Mia would answer a few questions about where she stands on
the issues, but she was to busy fundraising for that.
@ Marxist. Obama rescued American capitalism??? Now that's a good one! What
Obama has done is to explode American socialism, not capitalism! Ever hear of
re-distribution where the government forces one group of citizens to work for
that which they will not receive so another group can receive that for which
they did not work? Obama's legacy! We used to call it slavery but now its
called "social justice".
Mister J: I have heard her speak, in person and on TV. She isan excellent
speaker. The major networks didn't show her speech at the GOP national
convention because it would have undermined their efforts to reelect Obama.
They shamelessly suspended live coverage of the convention during her speech and
others; substituting instead their own commentators claiming "This is not
who the Republicans are" instead of giving voters a chance to hear and
decide for themselves.
People always say "focus on the issues"...Re: Irony Guy:
thank you! That is a real issue of interest for me with kids approaching
college (tuition) age!I'm guessing that is a GOP ideal, because
Mia does not really have any idea's of her own. I wish more people
understood that heading to the polls.
Billy Bob's comments belong in the Politburo. His judgement is validated by
only one principle, far right dogma. He need to study the Bible more. Liberals
don't hate Mia Love for what she espouses, which is very little. If they
hate Mia Love it is because of supporters likes Billy Bob. A prime example.
Not sure what to say, but want to say something, so...(fill in Mitt
joke here)(fill in Mia joke here)"Thank you for voting
Mia Love will be an embarrassment to Utah Republicans. The Black caucus will see
that she changes her positions or they will ignore her. The white republicans
will ignore her or just use her. The campaign money from out of state will dry
up after she has been elected and then she will forced to seek funds elsewhere.
She is already hooked on the fundraising aspect of politics and that will be her
downfall. Most of the money she has collected to date has been wasted.
"Mia Love is the democrat's worse nightmare, a conservative, black
woman."It's a voters view on issues that matters most and
if she's just a clone of the other tea partiers in that regard, her race
doesn't make a difference.@Billy Bob" She dares to be
a Conservative because she actually thinks for herself"For
conservatives once the talk radio hosts speak the thinking has been done. (By
the way, I don't seriously mean that, at least not for all
conservatives.)" is not a slave to liberal ideology and empty
and dishonest rhetoric."You invoke slavery with regards to
liberals (why do some conservatives always do that when talking about black
liberals?) and then mention dishonest rhetoric?
Mia Love wants to discontinue federal aid to college students, even though she
took such aid for herself to get through college. Why is it ok for
her but not for others?If higher education is the key to success in
this country, why does Ms Love want to make it significantly harder for people
to pay for it? This is a serious issue on which Ms Love demonstrates
not only illogic but downright hypocrisy.
Mia Love will be a breath of fresh air in the House of Representatives.
Progressives are apoplectic when they sense she may win and pare down the
Beltway Establishment. Maybe if she can get enough like-minded allies, the
Washington Beltway won't have 8 of the highest-income counties in the
country. Power to the people, not the Establishment!
Run Mitt Run!We need a real leader....something we haven't seen
in Washington in years.
....Yeah, because Marxism has proved to be such an effective economic system.
Ha Ha Ha! Obama rescued capitalism. Ha ha ha.
GaryO, if you are a moderate, then so is Van Jones.
Re: Mountanman " More evidence America elected the wrong man!"Obama rescued American capitalism. I don't know I can ever forgive
him for that. But you should have some gratitude. As for Love, she
has no grasp of any issue, apart from her ideology.
I think Mia will be great. Happy to support her.
DonO, I'm not convinced that Owens is getting any traction in this
election. He's just another white, middle aged male, pleasant enough but
nothing about him that makes him stick out. I don't believe he will attract
enough of the lazy middle in Utah to get elected.
"So what's wrong with abolishing the Department of Education along with
the Department's of Energy, Interior and the EPA. Let the states keep the
money and use in to serve the people and not a lot of Washington big spending
Know Nothings."What's wrong with it?Well . . .
the "Washington big spending Know Nothings" actually know a lot MORE
than the Rush-Limbaugh-worshiping, State-rightist know-it-alls.They
just don't realize their OBVIOUS limitations, because they've allowed
themselves to be immersed in Right Wing lies, exaggerations and faulty logic for
so long.They don't even want to know how to think for
themselves anymore. It's just too hard.
She has no ideas of her own...only those which she is "commanded" to
His campaigns haven't fared so well. Hopefully it rubs off on Mia's.
To quote a famous movie line when a liberal asked Mia Love, "Who are
you?"Her response, "I am your worst nightmare!"That is all I need to fully support her.
The blind leading the blind
Hey bc1050 - "Utah will have our first black women congress person... Now we
will see just how tolerant Liberals are."As a Moderate, I
can’t speak for Liberals, but Liberals have NEVER been tolerant of
transparently bad governance. Why should they be?And another token
black person on the Koch Brother’s payroll does not equate to proof of
Conservative forward thinking, does it?Mia Love will be another
Clarence Thomas, voting the way she’s told.. . . Nothing
Democrats in red states are panicking about Obama showing up to campaign for
them (i.e. Mark Udall-Co, Mary Landrieu- La, Max Baucus-Mt, "Comedian”
Al Franken-MN, Kay Hagan-NC, Tom Harkin-IA, et al) while Romney is welcome to
campaign for ANY conservative running! More evidence America elected the wrong
Please. Anybody but Mia Love. We can do better Utah. Much better.
Watch the Love v. Owens debate next Tuesday at 6:00 PM. Make an informed voting
decision on who to vote for after listening to where the candidates stand on the
issues that matter to you. Celebrity endorsements are fine, but they don't
provide give you any information on where the cadidates stand on the important
issues. It is kind of condesending, "vote for Mia Love because she is a
repubican...". Find out where she stands on the issues and where Doug Owens
stands on the issues and then decide who actually try and get something done in
Washington that will help the people of Utah.
I voted for Constiution Party candidate weeks ago. Mia Love is too Much of a
neocon and Doug Owens is nothing more than an Obama cheer leader.
Mia Love will make wonderful Conservative representative for the state of Utah.
Utah will have our first black women congress person... Now we will see just how
tolerant Liberals are.
Mitt's campaigning for her? That's irrelevant. It's Mitt! Get his
name in the paper.
I listened to her interview with Napier-Pearce at the Salt Lake Tribune.
Love's answers were all tightly scripted, IMO, and rehearsed. I listened
to about half of it, and couldn't stand to listen to any more. What
happens to Love when she has to go off script? The debate (only one?) with
Owens should be interesting.
In a familiar tactic common to negative campaign ads, Love's detractors
seem to be planning to decry her plotting the murder Big Bird.
I really wish I had a candidate I WANTED to vote for. I don't like Love.
I don't like Matheson. What a shame we don't have qualified
candidates in this race.
Amazing analysis by liberals. Mia won't talk about the issues, they say
thus she doesn't know anything. Hillary playbook, don't
talk about the issues, liberals delight and extoll her virtues as a future
Liberals can't help but hate her. "How dare she be a Conservative when
she is a black woman? All black people are supposed to belong to us" is how
they act. The answer is simple. She dares to be a Conservative because she
actually thinks for herself and has realized that conservative values are what
is best for everybody in America. It is best for blacks, it is best for whites,
it is best for Hispanics, it is best for all other races (I have limited space
don't want to miss any so I took the short cut), it is best for men, it is
best for women, etc, etc, etc (I could go on, but again I have limited space).
So the real question liberals are asking is "how dare she think for
herself?" Or, if they were really honest with themselves they would think,
"How dare she step off the figurative plantation that we have created for
black people?" And the answer is again simple, because she thinks for
herself and is not a slave to liberal ideology and empty and dishonest rhetoric.
Photo #1 of Mia & Willard pressing the flesh, she looks rather bored
with it all doesn't she.
Mia Love is not the shoo in many believe she'll be. True, she has name
recognition, big bucks and lots of star power behind her but Owens is a strong,
intelligent fair-minded candidate who has a very real chance of winning this
thing. This one is fun to watch.
Mitt's campaigning for her? One more reason, among many, to support and
vote for her.
My next door neighbors best friends cousin once attended a rally that she
didn't like. I have to agree with her, even though I wasn't there.
One of my buddies heard her speak & was less than impressed... He thought
she was using the cliff notes version of a Chaffetz diatribe.I agree
w/ There You Go Again. A coworker thinks she is being used as pawn by the powers
that be here in Zion for "demographic reasons"
It's always about throwing rocks at each other because of Rs and Ds
So what's wrong with abolishing the Department of Education along with the
Department's of Energy, Interior and the EPA. Let the states keep the
money and use in to serve the people and not a lot of Washington big spending
It is a very civil race when the "worst it has been" was to run a sound
bit from Ms. Loves last failed campaign where she said she would cut student aid
and abolish the dept of education. More telling is her comment that she did not
want to talk about that, it was too negative. The GOP runs on negativity. As
for the Lt. Gov suggesting that it would be good if Mitt ran again in 2016, I
agree. It would be very good for the Democrat running against him, again.
A candidate that won't answer any questions? But for low effort thinking
Republicans that is a good thing. Right? Nothing to research, nothing to study.
Just sound bites like Fox News. Well Utah will get what they
deserve if they don't ask hard questions.And what about her
flip flop about education? Doesn't anyone care? I sure do!
Obama, Pelosi, and Reid don’t support her? One more reason, among many, to
support and vote for her.
When you are an r running for office in UTAH, you don't have to answer
questions...Your election is a sure thing.After her
coronation, she will be subjected to the same treatment r's gave President
Obama after his election...Right?
She doesn't want to answer questions about where she stands politically.
She is scared to debate the tough issues with her opponent. Those should be big
huge red flags to voters.
Mia Love is the democrat's worse nightmare, a conservative, black woman.
She will win and represent her Utah district well. A victory for Republican
candidates is a victory for America.
Mitt's campaigning for her? One more reason, among many, not to support or
vote for her.
abrady,Mia has said many times that she'll join the
Congressional Black Caucus. So it sounds like she's more than willing to
work across party lines.What I want to know is whether Doug Owens
will be a radical, extreme environmentalist like his late father, Wayne Owens.
If so, then I have absolutely no interest in supporting him.
Probably the same way the responded to Republican (and now contributor to Fox
News) Representative Allen West from Florida, by accepting her. That is if she
wants to join (unlikely given the primarily Democratic make up of the Caucus,
and her distaste for ideas that don't align with her own).
I cannot wait to see how the Congressional Black Caucus reacts to Mia if she is
