So Shirtliff was right? She is a novelty? Golly.
I wish you were in my district. I would SO vote for you.
Right on....I hope you win...and win BIG!!!!
Re: one old man Ogden, UT"She is a novelty?"You may
want to dismiss her but you can bet your very last dollar that Jim Matheson
isn't looking at Mia Love as a novelty. She is a formidable opponent that
will give him a real run for his money.She is a woman, an African
American, and she is a conservative Republican. As a bonus she has Obama
sitting in the White House to remind Utah voters why we want her to represent
us. It just doesn't get any better than that!!
You go girl! Totally Awesome!
Matheson is toast. Should have stayed in the second district so that Stewart
could beat him.
Mia Love offers Utah some real Hope and Change!! Let's go get Matheson!
How will the black caucus treat her?
Dear Mountanman, most likely not with open arms.
Jim Matheson is a Utah Mormon, and a Democrat.Which makes him even
more of a minority than a colored, Utah Mormon, woman who is Republican.Go Jim!
Rifleman @ 1:26 PM---When "One Old Man" from Ogden said that
Congresswoman Love... errrrr.. Mayor Love is a "novelty", I don't
believe he was "dismissing her" AT ALL!!!! Quite to the contrary, I
took it to mean he was ironically turning the A.G.'s tacky quotation into a
**POSITIVE** characteristic (in her favor).In other words, Shurtleff
said it in a negative, demeaning way; but Ogden-Man turned the use of the
"novelty" label into a beneficial, refreshing, uplifting and positive
word, for HER benefit!! Touche' Ogden Man!!!Otherwise.... I concur totally with the remainder of Rifleman's
statement!I'm SO impressed with this woman. What a breath of
fresh aire in the political arena!!
We need common sense, moderation and a willingness to work together to solve our
problems. As long as Mia associates with the tea party I will have a hard time
supporting her. The tea party and their social agenda are too extream. Mia needs
to tell us where she stands on policy before I can make up my mind. So far I
haven't heard anything other than she's conservative. What is her
substance? I don't care if she will be the first black, republican, woman
from Utah I want someone to do the job! If it is Mia great if not I will vote
She is the most exciting candidate to come along in decades.I wish I
were in her district.
Her only problem is she is a socialist republican proponent of welfare, that
believes in oppression, repression of rights, and poverty in low paying jobs.
Republicans are bad for this economy, they do not believe in
prosperity or the pursuit of happiness of the American working people, meaning
the citizens of america. This is why she and Romney will finish the destruction
of what the president and begun. They have no plans or means to offset a
recession, they just plan to ride it out in hopes it will repair itself with the
help of socialist governmnet intervention called welfare.Ron Paul
has been the only candidate with a plan of reconstruction and rebirth of the
prosperity of the American dream of the working american. Every one condemns the
president, but no one else has a plan of restoration.
Re: LDS Liberal Farmington, UT"Jim Matheson is a Utah Mormon, and a
Democrat."Mia Love's greatest asset going into this
election campaign is the man currently sitting in the White House. Conservative
Utahns are going to send Obama a message and unfortunately for Mr. Matheson he
is going to be collateral damage.
Mia Love has a handle on the Constitution. This is what make her platform so
Dear My2Cents: Ron Paul is not running for Congress in Utah--Mia Love is. As far as Jim Matheson being a Mormon and a Democrat....he is a marginal
Mormon and a mediocre Democrat who tries to play at being a conservative to keep
his seat. I Hope Mia is elected and I wish I could vote for her. She'll
be great in Washington and a great asset to our state.
@LDS Liberal: We don't use the term "colored" anymore. @Cats:
"Marginal Mormon" is both judgmental and hard to define (reference to
Huntsman intentional). These days, character and personality can be packaged on
one hand and destroyed by media attacks on the other. Would that we could
assess candidates' positions and make the best educated choices without ad
Re: LDS Liberal Farmington, UT"Jim Matheson is a Utah Mormon, and a
Democrat."There are a lot of Utah Mormons who are Democrats.
Nothing unusual about that. I even know a Jack Mormon in Farmington who fits
that description. Maybe Matheson will get lucky and get Obama to come to Utah
and campaign for him. He is going to need all the help he can get.
Go Mia! She's the kind of no-nonsense leader that Washington desperately
needs. You all can talk about race/gender/ideology all you want but she stands
for more than that. She desperately wants to help this country and will make
every effort to do so. She's different, but in a service-oriented way!
If Obama came to Utah to campaign for Matheson it would only help Mia Love!This is it for Matheson.Utah is anxious to show that we are
in no way racist. We would gladly have voted for a black president if he was a
conservative, constitution loving, small government, cut spending type of
person. That is what Mia Love stands for. Being a black woman who can beat
Matheson is just another plus.I'm excited to cast my vote for
Travelrus says:"Mia needs to tell us where she stands on policy
before I can make up my mind. So far I haven't heard anything other than
she's conservative."From the Mia Love website, under
Issues:"Balancing the budget is only part of the solution. We
must cut federal spending to begin to restore America’s economic strength
and citizen liberties.The federal government must be confined to the
enumerated powers granted by the Constitution.American society must
return to valuing and rewarding hard work, independence and personal
responsibility. Government dependency on entitlement programs and welfare is a
failure.Government does not create jobs, the private sector does.
Government simply needs to get out of the way.Equip our armed
forces, and engage only when there is a defined national security objective and
with the consent of Congress, not the United Nations.Protect our
borders and remove the magnets. We must keep the promises made to
our seniors to provide for their retirement while we move aggressively to more
solvent alternatives.The more socialized our health care becomes,
the fewer choices people have."Hopefully this will help you
understand her policy.You can search yourself.

so glad that we have you a pious true believer such as yourself to clear up any
misconceptions. Nah!! I 2nd what Counter Intelligence (9:41 a.m. May 3, 2012)
I understand Love is also a marathon runner and a mother of three, who put
Saratoga Springs on a sound fiscal basis as mayor.She persuaded 70% of the
delegates at the conventiin to vote for her, showing great judgment that she can
defeat Matheson. I think she has a good shot at retiring Matheson.I
hope Romney flies her out for some photo ops soon. Her image with his will
disrupt tons of lying anti-Mormon gossip in the ignorant news media.
Mia, you are a Godsend. Best wishes for your campaign!
