    Re 1covey Salt Lake City

    “How many female or nonwhite representatives to Congress have the Utah Democrats put forward ?”

    Please correct me if I am wrong but was not Stewart’s opponent female?
    Was not Hatch’s Senate opponent female?

    Question for the day. Which political party in Utah has had the most female candidates for Federal campaigns?

    And who did the Utah voters vote for?

    I have always admired the courage and candor of Mia Love. President Trumps comments on Mia were inappropriate and politically ridiculous. She hadn’t even lost election. Republicans lost an effective and needed voice in Congress. She should continue to speak up and lead on minority women’s issues.

    ...the GOP was about the middle class and were typically faith-based people. Now the GOP is just a reaction to Obama's socialist agenda. Problem is there are a lot of conservative people that are compassionate and that care about the country regardless of race and gender.

    Because right there with 'Obama's socialist agenda', you have discredited yourself as 'compassionate', or 'caring about the country'.

    The programs that have been proposed in the US since before the New Deal, that have been targeted by conservatives, have never been 'socialist' at all. Socialism is not a few programs paid for by taxes to help those in need.

    Socialism rests on state ownership of the means of production. Name one company that has been 'taken' by the Federal government in the US, ownership stripped from their former private individuals. Even the Auto and Financial bailouts of the 2008/2009 era were not turned into 'state' owned companies. Stockholders continued ownership, but did have to take measures to return to solvency based on government 'bail out' funds.

    Obamacare worked in the context of privately owned insurance companies.

Then people who lose or make their living by saying everyone hates or doesn’t understand the black, “ whatever” or The. Muslim what ever.

    I am a bit disappointed. I know Mia can do better. Truth is her campaign was weak. In a rough and tumble campaign, McAdams had a few spots showing him with his family, A perfect foil to a negative campaign. Mia needed to have used the same foil; she didn't. She lost by a smidgen. Again, I say, Mia, get your feet back on the ground. To others, if Mia was Utah Republican token, at least she was something. Utah Democrats didn't even have that much. How many female or nonwhite representatives to Congress have the Utah Democrats put forward ?

    "Interesting also all these people who think Mr Trump just doesn't understand this or that or anything. Fact is he won the presidential election without any background in politics and easily and at the first try. He now is popular with more and more people almost daily because he actually does understand and actually gives the people, not the powerful lobbyists, what they want."

    That is hilariously wrong. You are really going with 'more and more people, not the powerful lobbyists, what they want'? Wow. His entire white house (well those still there, half are already gone) is composed of lobbyists and unqualified billionaires. The swamp is worse than ever.



    Are you saying old white people are devoid of compassion? You are essentially saying that only minorities and women are capable of compassion. Unbelievable."

    Right. You could only say that if you have actually watched what they have collectively done for the last 100 years. They have compassion...for themselves. And their votes have shown it.

    Mia, I voted for you, rooted for you. But this claim is off the charts. Trump is Trump. His interactions have absolutely nothing to do with minorities nor women. You could not be more wrong. And the Republican party embraces women, embraces minorities as far as that goes.

    You lost because of Mia, not President Trump. And to start playing the victim game is not becoming of you. That is the game Dems play, not Republicans.

I had hoped Mia was above such a thing. To lose an election and then to sacrifice your dignity in this way is just really sad.

    Mia: Perhaps you do not understand what President Trump has brought about for all minorities and women. Perhaps time to think less about yourself and more about others who have been lifted out of poverty and unemployment. Almost 4 million people are no longer on food stamps because they have a job. It is possible that you don't get it but he actually does. Try reading the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    Jobs as of November 6, 2018
    The unemployment rate has dropped to 3.7 percent, its lowest point since 1969. Unemployment among African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Americans without college degrees have all reached record lows under the Trump Administration.

    I voted against Mia because she was a poor representative. But I'm trying to understand where she's coming from.

    The most generous interpretation of her words that i can make is this: in a round about way, she's simply saying that, in the white Male dominated GOP, she was just a token minority. They liked having her because it made them look "diverse", but they never fully embraced her as a black woman, never "brought her home".

    That's not playing the race card. It's pointing out a fact about the GOP. I get that. Let's hope the party leaders get it!

    In many ways, I agree with Mia. We can all do a better job understanding each other, and Trump is the Republican Party's biggest liability.

    But in many ways, she is blaming the Republican Party for allowing a Democrat to beat her. McAdams ran a better campaign, and Trump's idiocy probably cost Mia the election.

    In the last election, if the Democrats had some legitimate moderate candidates they could have picked up a couple more seats.

    After winning two elections why does Love choose to bring out the race card now? Race does not seem to be the reason she lost at all. After two terms in office the voters have a good idea of what their representative is like. A loss for the third run tends to be based more on the voters perception of the candidates performance while in office. As the article said, now is the time to move on and be a bigger voice out o office than when in office. The choice is Mia's alone.

    Thank you for your service, Mia. Now, please tell us exactly what Mr. Obama did for minority women. Or for minority men, which is just as important. I look forward to your response. From my vantage point I observed Mr. Obama doing nothing to advance the cause, but rather doing just the opposite, something today's data supports.

    I know there are many issues that face our political representatives, be it local or national. Given that, it seems only fair that you address the efforts of our current president's predecessor based on whatever solid data you use to judge the efforts of President Trump.

    I hope to see you in office again as you strive to help our nation through some troubling times.

    Boy oh boy it's hard to comment sometimes. First, my comment was sent to feedback (?) and now my second is on hold? I didn't say anything inappropriate.I probably said some things Republicans don't want to hear, though.

    I said the GOP women problem is more than the tweets. It's everything Trump does and says, and a congress who will not hold him accountable. Women like me did the only reasonable thing to do and left the GOP. If it wants them back (and I doubt it does) it has to make drastic changes, and that starts with a 2020 nominee who is not Trump.

    To all the folks who are bashing Mia in this thread, she had to buck a very strong anti Trump wave in suburban congressional districts all over the country. The Republicans lost every seat they held in L A and Orange Counties Ca, seats in Oklahoma City, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and a number of other states. Mia came out of Salt Lake County 20,000 votes behind and couldn't make up the difference in Utah, Juab and Sanpete Counties. Her perception of Trump is spot on, he has is only interested in women based on what they will give him. Trump has not made much of an appeal to women and minorities, and his attacks on Latin-American illegal aliens is very offensive to many U S citizens of Latin American background.

    "Mia is proof of how Republicans only vote Republican.
    Many Republicans have stated they would rather have Putin running our country than Obama.
    Now they have their way."


    As if Democrats always vote republican?
    And exactly which Republicans say they want Putin?
    The Russian hysteria has officially jumped the shark.
    Whatever flaws the Republicans have, it certainly does not stoop to this level of inane.

    Mia's comments come across as sore loser, particularly since she was elected twice - by Republicans; Does she really believe the race baiting identity politics of the left are anything other than patronizing; where is the criticism of patronization?

    Why do we expect politicians to address specific groups. How about addressing the needs of people. Somewhere we have gotten lost and believe we have to address issues that relate to very small groups of minorities instead of those that are for the good of all. As a woman, I'm happy with the things the GOP fights for on my behalf...as long as they are fighting. The constitution covers everyone. Government needs to stick to the basics, keep their noses out of our lives, and stop taking and redistributing our money to special interest groups to get reelected. Fairly simple.

    Mia, it's hard to teach Trump or anyone else when you lose your platform. You lost your platform in one of the most conservative areas of the state because you didn't give people a reason to vote for you. Since you were elected twice please stop the race and woman card. Last I checked you were the same race and gender when you were elected twice. The hardest thing in life is to look inward to the reason you failed. Trump's not the issue, your attitude toward those who voted for you and your voting record on issues they cared about are.

    Yes, why DOES the gop bother with the so-called minority when women since women are in the majority and greatly outnumber men and have all the laws and biases in their favor. That type of thinking landed us up with May and Merkel probably just because of their gender.

    Interesting also all these people who think Mr Trump just doesn't understand this or that or anything. Fact is he won the presidential election without any background in politics and easily and at the first try.

    The reaction here to Mia's comments is proof she's simply in the wrong party... and also why the last election saw 28 GOP seats lost.

    With Millenials, minorities and women increasingly engaged, Republicans are baffled to understand why. As we clearly see here, all they can do is attack and counter-attack.

    Mia, trying to help them understand is a waste of time. It's like Tim Scott trying to explain to Trump that racism still exists.

    It's a painful, fruitless attempt at reaching out.

    Mia, why did you leave Haiti? Why did your parents? Because Haiti is one of the most dangerous places on earth!! I would call many parts of the middle east and also north Africa the same thing that the president called it. Actually talk to service men and women and they will use much more "salty" language to describe Haiti. Anyway -- just be glad you are in Saratoga Springs where you don't have to worry about terrorists riding in the backs of pick ups with AK47's blazing away. As far as the presidents comments toward why you lost Mia, president Trump was 100% correct. I have heard many residents of Saratoga Springs call in to talk shows locally and lets just say they weren't at all happy with how you "didn't" support the president the past year. If you would have followed the other GOP congressmen in Utah with their campaign you would be enjoying your third term right now. They focused on all the good the president has done such as the economy and following through on all of his campaign promises and then some. You lost Mia because you didn't run a good campaign. Period. Lesson learned.

    Mia Love may be correct that race and sexism hurt her chances at the polls, but I notice that she had little to say on the topic until she lost the election. She ran as a Republican candidate and must have known that neither Trump nor her party have ever demonstrated much concern about the interests of either minorities and women.

    Given that Utahns were fine with electing her before, I think it's quite likely that her loss was due to the fact that she didn't accomplish much in office, that she ran afoul of the campaign finance laws, and that she seemed to be more of a Republican puppet than someone with her own solid values. I hope she's learned a valuable political lesson.

    Ms. Love is absolutely right on this observation. Trump lacks understanding, compassion, and basic courtesy, not only for minority women but for other people of whatever description you might designate. We need to choose a different person to be President in 2020, regardless of whether that person is Republican or Democrat.

  • UtahBruin Eagle Mountain, UT

    So in a nutshell, she is blaming Trump for her loss. Apparetnly he is not doing enough which is why she lost and he makes statements about things. Oh and they are apparently a little to brash for her. But from what I have heard from Trump. What he says is true. It may not come out the way you want to hear it, this even goes for me. But it's true. So she says these things instead of taking responsibility for her own actions.

    And all these things that she is saying that need to be done. Maybe if she had paid attention to these things and worked on these things when she had her seat, she may have gotten re-elected. This is on her, she blew it when she thought it was more important to be Washington than the person she wants everyone else to be now. Pathetic. And I voted for her.

    Nobody but a true narcissist would think they understand all things.

    The only exception might be those who are blind to the things Trump doesn’t understand because they agree with a few of the things they think they understand.

    She lost the election because she was a bad representative. She was the champion for the democrat agenda with her rhetoric, on immigration and black women among other topics. However, electing a democrat is never, ever a good idea, even when the alternative is a worthless republican. At least she voted sensibly most of the time. McAdams will vote to destroy Utah's values (with the democrats) 100% of the time.

    "There it is at last, the race card"

    Why is it that presumable persons of European origins accuse those who are not of playing a "race card" when a legitimate argument is made about racial intolerance. She may/may not be correct in her analysis, but it is indeed a legitimate point to debate.

    Saying that someone plays a "race card" is a tactic intended to demean that individual. Particularly a person whose racial or ethnic background is not one of European origins. As if they do not have reasonable, but possibly debatable, claims and assertions.

    As a conservative, white Christian male, I have to agree with Mia. Why in the world does the GOP struggle to connect with women and minorities? Years ago, the GOP was about the middle class and were typically faith-based people. Now the GOP is just a reaction to Obama's socialist agenda. Problem is there are a lot of conservative people that are compassionate and that care about the country regardless of race and gender. Why aren't they in the discussion? Why does it have to be about polarizing extremist issues?

    trump doesn't understand anything. On the same topic, neither does Mia Love. She never did anything for Utah, all of her money came from out of state corporate interests. She went lock step with the GOP even when her own family benefited from programs the GOP oppose.

    "Love said her party needs to work harder to show "we're actually pretty compassionate."

    Yeah, no. You can say that all you want, but their actions prove counter. Mia joins a party, overwhelmingly dominated about old white men, then complains that they have little diversity?
    That's like moving to Siberia and then complaining that it's cold. In Mia's case in Utah, her loss is not reflective that the GOP is not inclusive, it's due to the fact that most Utahn's didn't approve of her actions (non-actions) on the job. The loss is on Mia.
