He went right along with obamacare. He supports palosi and reid. He goes along
with all the spending. So how does this help Utah, except put us further in
Now I am in California and you may want to say "mind your own business!"
but you folks in the 4th Cong. Dist. of Utah have to elect this lady. Please
and thank you.
Popcorn! Get yer hot fresh popcorn here! Buttered or plain, sorry, no bacon
bits! I expect this campaign to have some lively moments. I hope
many issues are brought forth and well-represented so that whoever wins will
have a better perspective on the concerns that the represented have, whether
liberal, conservative, or mixed. (I'd bring veteran's care to the
table of concerns, for example)
Matheson has fooled his constituents for years by pretending to be a
conservative Democrat. He has walked a tight line by catering to his Democrat
leadership who have released him for final-passage votes enough times to
"protect his seat." Let's hope the voters aren't
fooled again. Matheson is a phony. Mia Love represents the values
of this state.
So Mia Love doesn't believe in bipartisanship?
Mia Love posted the following on her Facebook page a few days ago, and I believe
it demonstrates the basic fundamental differences between what we'll get if
we send Love back to DC rather than Matheson:You may have heard that
the federal government has fined Davis High $16,000 and Box Elder High $19,000
for selling soda pop to students during lunch—a violation of federal
regulations that were established through the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of
2010. The hefty fines will negatively impact students. For example, Davis High
principal Dee Burton says that the money to pay for his school’s fine will
come out of its drama, music, and debate programs.Representative Jim
Matheson voted in favor of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act. I would have voted
I believe Mia Love has what it takes not only to beat Matheson, but bring real
change to Washington and a better face to Utah.
I really like Mia Love. She is the best candidate Utah has produced in years.
But I can say at least one good thing about Jim Matheson: Unlike
Orrin Hatch, Matheson is willing to make a joint appearance with his
opponent.Sure, the story says he avoided recognizing her while
delivering his speech, saving his criticism for later, but at least he was
willing to be in the same room with her.I can't wait to hear
them debate.Go Mia Love!
Mia says she's a conservative and her record reflects that.Matheson says he's a moderate, but his record proves that he's a
liberal.So the choice for voters is clear: Do you want to be
represented by a conservative, or do you want to be represented by a dishonest
@Star Bright: He voted against Obamacare and has advocated fiscal conservatism.
It is hardly fair to characterize him as being in league with Pelosi and Reid.
Jim Matheson is a tried and tested conservative Democrat.
We love Mia...get her into the 4th District and then take over for borin'
Orrin. This lady is awesome!!
"I run as Jim Matheson, and everybody in Utah knows that. I vote for
what's right for my constituents. Party label really is not what drives any
decision I make."Really Jim? Then why do you vote against
democrats, unless your vote is needed or you'll sit out and not vote on a
controversial issue unless your fellow democrats need your vote. Yes Jim we all
know how you vote, it's not for what is right, it's what benefits your
re-election and the image you have of being "bi-partisan" and looking
out for the interest of everyone in your district.At least Pelosi,
however misguided and off the wall her thinking is, has what it takes to tell
everyone what she thinks.Jim you don't make sense. We need a
leader that is willing to cut spending, cut borrowing, lower taxes for everyone,
and pay down and pay off our debt. You haven't done that.Good
bye Jim. Can't wait to vote you out.
a couple of questions for Jimwho will you vote for as speaker of the
house? queen nancy - again?why did you vote to force catholic
hospitals to perform abortions?
I am always amazed at the hubris demonstrated by Utah Republicans. Whatever
happened to the notion that in politics you can disagree without being
disagreeable. Mia seems to be a poster child for scorched earth politics. Blue
dog = Democrat, Democrat = evil. That's the essence of her political dog
whistle message discussed in this article.
The more I learn about Mia Love, the more I like the idea of her representing
Utah. Matheson is in for the campaign of his life and will likely be looking
for new employment after the election.
Mia Love is scary.She would "look at the Paul Ryan plan to
privatize Medicare and turn Medicaid and other programs into block grant
programs to the states and to extend the Bush-era tax cuts."Where does the Federal Government get the money to fund "block grants"
if not from taxes?
If Mia ran her campaign like the democrats did from 2006-2008....then she could
say things like "If you don't vote for Mia you are sexists".
"If you don't vote for Mia you are racists".I
can't believe Jim (white male) would want to run against Mia who could be
the first black woman congressman in this nations history! We don't want
another wrinkly old white man running this country....c'mon democrats are
Matheson voted against Obama's Health care bill. Sounds like the
misinformation crusade has already begun. What I like about Matheson is he
belives it is the fundamental job of the Government to govern. Matheson
won't be an ideological mascot, he just goes to work and represents
traditional Utah values in the vein of Bill Orton and Olene Walker. Love is
supported by a tea party PAC which is quite radical. I am weary of the radical
right and left trying to make every issue a choice between good and evil instead
of doing basic work like passing budgets and defending the country.
Mia uses the word contrast, which can mean "opposition or juxtaposition of
different forms, lines, or colors in a work of art to intensify each
element's properties and produce a more dynamic expressiveness," or
"the relative difference between light and dark areas of a print or
negative." I wonder, if Matheson had used the same word, how long it would
have been before accusations of racism were raised?
@Liberal Ted, @Democrat, and @UtahDemocrat:Mia Love rarely talks
about race. It's the Democrats in this race who continuously bring it
up.Also, Matheson voted AGAINST the repeal of Obamacare, so get your
facts straight. He wants to keep Obamacare.
She will talk big if and until she is elected. Then she will sit back and do
nothing but rack in big bucks like the rest of them in Washington!
Matheson = Pelosi/Reed/Obama. What else is there to say.
