Honesty & integrity must NOT matter to the Utahans who voted for Mitt in
2012. Mitt did NOT have the integrity (honesty) or courage (bravery) to tell
the truth about President Obama's place of birth or to "shout at the
devil" (the donald & all birthers). He made hypocrites of a million+
Mormons who included him in their prayers at night and would "bare false
witness" against the President of the United States the next day. Mitt, you
are a disgrace!
1st avenor do I support trump. I think I did explain why hilary's
supporters cheered when she refused to address her credibility issues - they
don't care.I think the same can probably said for trump
supporters - they are so disgusted with BO, hilary and everything the dems have
foisted on them, they would accept anything over hilary.
@lost so liberals acknowledge she has an honesty problem (I cannot explain
why some would choose the cheer that) yet we hear nothing from Trump supporters
who refuse to even acknowledge his dishonesty. The funny thing is Trump has flat
out said he will lie tf he think it will give him an advantage yet his
supporters refuse to acknowledge he lacks honesty and integrity. As I stated
before I do not care for either one of them and think they represent everything
that is wrong with our current primary election process.
Furry, 1st Ave,Even liberals acknowledge hilary has a problem with her
credibility. There was an interesting graphic in the print version of the DN, it
showed that only 45% of dems cared about honesty and integrity. When asked in a
debate how she would address her credibility issues, she did not dodge the
question, but flat out refused to even answer. She said something like,
“we’re not even going to go there”. What is really sad is her
supporters cheered, making it very apparent they do NOT care about honesty and
integrity.Imperial7,we were talking national politics, but you
could not resist, could you?
Honesty & Integrity? Those are noble attributes. However, one just needs to
look at our Utah Legislature to know that those attributes don't apply
@RC in WJ,You said:'Is it possible that there are
very few Honest politicians with integrity, and those that are honest find it
not worth the effort to fight the establishment, be it Right or Left!'Very much so! I do feel Trump is honest with integrity, and loves this
country. Not everything in his life has been perfect, but he will do
what's best for the country.He's got the backbone to fight
the establishment, and I'm glad he finds it worth the effort.The fact of Democrats, Republicans, and media, fighting against him, tells me
he's different, and perhaps what we need.It would take someone
of his arrogance, self confidence, and backbone to heal this nation.
I think Utah people are up in the night if they would vote a Democrat in over
Donald Trump. If they want honesty, then they are certainly blind folded if they
think Hillary or Sanders would be truthful. Come on Utah I have a hard time
believing this is how you feel.I don't approve of Trumps vulgarity
either but when it comes to Trump vs Hillary or Bernie I'd vote for Trump
in a heartbeat. Right at this point I lean toward Ted Cruz, but there are things
about him that concern me too. If Trump or Cruz can put this Nation back on its
feet, I'll learn to deal with some of the language from Trump. I pray every night that Gods hand will be in the decision making of who will
be in charge of this great Nation come November.
@lost in DC 7:35 a.m. March 20, 2016Interesting that the next
headline down says utahns would pick hilary over trump, when she has no honesty
nor integrity, so I guess we really do not value those traits------------------In truth, no politician has either honesty nor
integrity. Those qualities just don't come with the "job". That
being said, Ms. Clinton and Sen. Sanders are less lacking in those qualities
than any of the Republicans who have been in the race or have been
discussed/suggested in connection with becoming President. That's truly a
sad commentary about what it means to be a politician.
Re: Worf" I don't think this nation is capable of electing
a person with honesty and integrity. They will believe the lies."Here's a thought and question! Is it possible that there are very few
Honest politicians with integrity, and those that are honest find it not worth
the effort to fight the establishment, be it Right or Left!
If you read Romney's "endorsement' of Cruz carefully, you'll
see that he doesn't really support Cruz - he just thinks he can get Utahns
to support him in overwhelming numbers - so the establishment can get their
brokered convention and bestow a more worthy candidate, like Paul Ryan, or maybe
even Romney again on us.
Regrettably, honesty and integrity are liabilities to a candidate. Nobody with
those values could fundraise a campaign sized war chest. You have to sell out.
I hate the term "fiscal conservative" mentioned in the article. Shoot,
everybody's a "fiscal conservative! What it really means is that they
don't want to pay for all the stuff they still want!
Would Utah for General Patton for president? Probably not. Yes, Patton had
idiosyncrasies but He was America's tool to get us out of a pickle with
Germany. Now we need someone to get Americans heads out of the sand. Americans
have become "cowardish". Would Utah vote for President Kennedy knowing
all the women he had but he helped America. What if Utah was a Mexican border
state? Then Utah would be a major drug highway. Clinton's "We are a
village" is too hippie while the terrorist flow in through the border and
threaten our families. We Americans are too thin skinned and get our feelings
hurt easily. What happen to the tough America. At least Trump is honest and not
politically correct. The Washington politicians know nothing beyond the
"Beltway"; all we hear is scandal after scandal over there. No
@lost So do you think Trump is any more honest or has any more integrity
then Clinton? I think these two appittimize our political race to the bottom.
I agree with SFSteveS about the Republican side. On the values and integrity
question, I'd say Kasich has it pretty much sewn up. On the plain
question of factual honesty, he's number one in a race with only one
runner. On the important question of Medicare and Obamneycare, I don't
think he has acted well. It's simply that he is alone among Republican
Governors in not being actively and aggressively wicked. He is alone among them
in not working hard to deny his poorer constituents health insurance.On the Democratic side, I respectfully disagree with Steve. He has swallowed
some GOP talking points, seems to me. It's pretty clear that both the
excellent Bernie and the very fine Hillary have made some mistakes in their
lives. I think that Hillary's integrity is solid, and her
"dishonesties" have been honest errors. I'd call it 50-50 on Utah
values. Last note: I am unsurprised that a largely Mormon audience
would rate religion low on their list of things to consider. Values transcend
religious affiliations, and sectarian considerations have no place in
If Utah really values honesty and integrity they wouldn't vote Clinton.
Cruz has no family values. One must only look at his family relationships.
Family unity is not a dictatorship.
Interesting that the next headline down says utahns would pick hilary over
trump, when she has no honesty nor integrity, so I guess we really do not value
‘Poll: Honesty and integrity top traits Utahns value’well, so much for Hilary ... Cruz is pretty much toast too ... Trump is a
farce ... so, it's either Kasich or Bernie and I just
don't think the majority of citizens in this country are ready for a
Scandinavian-style socialist government ... if the poll is accurate,
it would seem Kasich is the next Pres ... I'm with Utah on this one
Honesty and integrity are great, but can people recognize it when it's
there?Can people see through all the propaganda, and deceit, to vote
in an honest person with integrity? Good candidates are falsely demonized, and
people will believe it.Hope I'm wrong, but I don't think
this nation is capable of electing a person with honesty and integrity. They
will believe the lies.
