Considering the "achievements" of Obama, that's not saying much.
The headline doesn't reflect what the author wrote at all. I sometimes
wonder if the headline writers ever read the articles.
The sheer volume of pro mittney coverage here is incredible.
The "competence" of Mitt Romney? Competent to do what, tank
the economy of Massachusetts and flip-flop on every issue imaginable? Yeah, OK.
Re: Hutterite American Fork, UT"The sheer volume of pro mittney
coverage here is incredible."It is going to get worse, much
worse, for liberals as we get closer to the elections in November. No wonder
Obama is wishing for the good old days when he campaigned against John
McCain.It was Democratic strategist James Carville who advised Obama
@HutteriteLet's see this is a conservative newspaper in the most
republican leaning state in the union and there's surprise that the
headlines lean toward Mitt. Not going to sell too many papers praising Obama in
the state where Clinton took 3rd!
"Let's see this is a conservative newspaper in the most republican

Clinton took 3rd!"There is a big difference between "telling
the truth" and simply "telling your audience what they want to
hear."One qualifies as news and the other does not.
To: Inis Magrath: "tanked the economy of Massachusetts".Left office with 4.7% unemployment rate! What will Obama leave with 8%
plus?Left office with a Surplus and a funded rainy day fund after
starting with a 2 billion dollar deficit and a legislature 85 percent Democrat!
Sure sounds like he worked with the opposition to solve problems!Obama and his team:Experts on FLIP FLOPPING!1. The Economy is
Fine: Oh it isn't Fine.2. Close Gitmo: Oh Leave it Open.3. Bain
is Bad. Oh Bain is Good!4. Romney is bad: Romney is Sterling!5. I
will Support the Unions: No Support for Unions in Wisconsin.6. Didn't
know about the Guns in Fast in Furious Scandal: Did know about it.7.
Released Top Secret Documents: Didn't release Top secret Documents.8.
We need the Bush Tax Cuts: We don't need the Bush Tax Cuts.9. 57
States or not?It just goes on and on!To: Hutterite:
Might I suggest if you dislike the Mitt coverage here you go to
CNN,MSNBC,ABC,CBS,NBC,Huffington Post,A.P.,Reuters, ect... to get your fill of
distortions favoring Obama!Obama Failed!
Democrats are beyond reality. The problem is not "we're getting the
message out," nor is it "missteps" by the campaign, nor is it
"George Bush." The problem for Obama is he a complete and utter failure.
Aside from some gay prancing, and some pandering to certain elements in the
healthcare industry; name one positive thing the guy has done? A blind, deaf,
and handicapped Romney would be head and shoulders better than Obama. Even a
president who would do nothing, would be far better than all the bad stuff Obama
decided to champion.
UtahCentrist -- regarding your final point, please quote any portion of the
article that is not a telling of the truth.Good luck.Hopefully, even the average U.S. voter, even though not qualified to vote, can
see the disaster that is Obama's "let's spend our way to
prosperity" economic policies. Obama: "The rich need to
pay their fair share." In a system where the top 10% of wage earners
already pay 70.5% of the taxes, and 46% of all tax filers pay $0 in federal
income tax, Obama is delusional. What does he want...the top 10% of wage earners
to pay 80% of the taxes, instead of 70%? Even if he accomplishes that, it is a
red herring because it will make only a small dent on the gross out-of-control
"spend more than you receive" approach to the economy that is the Obama
policies. Bush expanded government too. I didn't like it when Bush did
it, I don't like it when Obama does it.Which of today's
candidates will make things better?If Romney loses, it will prove
that voter intelligence is at an all time low.
@Magrath"The "competence" of Mitt Romney? Competent to do what, tank the economy of Massachusetts and flip-flop on every
issue imaginable? Yeah, OK."OK, now that you've highlighted
Romney's negatives, let's see you list his positives, experience and
accomplishments. Can you, and will you? And stack them against Obama's.I can't believe the typical Obama follower like you are still blind
to the two different resumes of Obama and Romney. Again, and again: Obama never
ran an office that qualified, him for president, at least gave him some
executive experience. And his ineptness and incompetence have clearly been
demonstrated. Compare that with Romney's experience! Miles apart! The
logic is if Obama was elected with hardly any experience in matters of governing
and the economy, imagine what a person like Romney would do?
GuitarBoy, The top 10% are not wage earners. They Have gobs of money which
invested make them lots more money. Because their tax contribution accounts for
roughly 70% of tax money collected is not evidence of paying a fair share.
Taxes are based on a percentage of money earned, not a set amount owed per
person. investor earnings are taxed at about 15%, A single wage earner taxpayer
could be in as high as a 35% tax bracket. So of the two who pays the most
taxes? That so many in the country do not pay any taxes is a problem that needs
to be corrected, every citizen should contribute something, even if it is a
"widows mite".Even with the amount of money that the top 10%
pay, the US Govt. still spends an additional $700 billion dollars or so per year
of borrowed money which future generations are expected to repay. Spending is
out of control under Obama. Romney says he is going to cut taxes. I'd like
to hear how he plans to do that. My vote is going to a 3rd party candidate.
More Romney love? How about balanced reporting DNEWS. Do the "compilers"
just troll for Mitt Romnay articles and post? Nice reporting..
Glad to hear Romney is getting better press. It is so hard to hear the lies from
the Obama camp, and the fear that there are still blind voters, planning on
voting for him. We need to get America out of dept. That should be one of the
greatest tasks that needs addressing with a new President. Of course the need
for Jobs for our American citizens is very very important. YOU NOTICDE I SAID
But, will a confidence meme in Mormonism arise if a Prez Romney brings the
country back to fiscal health?My crystal ball sees a You Betcha meme
on the horizon. Mammon is prime for so many.
If someone likes Romney, they are obviously racist of biased. If they like
Obama, they are deluded. One article will favor Romney the other Obama - it
does no good to call names. The Deseret News will probably favor Romney, CNN
will probably praise Obama. Again, the back and forth name calling does little
good.Before us will be an election; some say one of the most
critical to date. Everyone will be asked to approach the polls and vote
according to their own conscience and opinion and we will hope that no one -
either Republican, Democrat, Independent or whatever is coerced or intimidated
into voting in any way contrary to what they feel to be right and for what ever
reason they feel that way. Let's be grateful that we can still vote and
let's make sure we never lose that right --- or any of the others we have
come to rely on for our freedom.
You'd think voters would get a clue and look for a better chauffeur if they
paid good money and he drove them deeper in the ditch.But if your
chauffeur is a chauffer, then you're better off placing your confidence in
a small portable stove. Cause we didn't need a constitutional lawyer to
take us where European epicureanism took them. We could've just partied in
Greece. It's alot prettier in Santorini and their museums and gelato are
"The private sector is doing fine."Any questions on why
confidence is shifting to Romney? A few more 'gaffes' like that and
this election is going to be a landslide victory for Romney. Let's hope.
We can't afford 4 more years of Obama's economic plan.
Wolffarm in Medicine Lake: love the moniker. A few Danes in your heritage?
Some posters are still having a problem with stating correct facts. Forty some
percent pay no Income Tax. That is not the same as the erroneous statement that
forty some percent pay no taxes.
There should be a pop up sign above President Obama's head. It should read
its not my fault its __________ fault. They could just change the person, place
or thing that fills in the blank. That is all I seem to be hearing from him. My
kids were good at saying its not my fault. Now it is time to have a real
businessman take over our Country and get the Government running lean.
How did we get here? Back in the 70's Pres. Nixon said "When the
President does it, then it is not illegal"; His crime, breaking into the
democratic convention offices at the watergate hotel. Today that same thinking
must prevail at the top. We have a former president and vice president that
should be investigated for war crimes. A current president that has a kill
list, and in the process of killing those on the list many others are also
killed. One, a US citizen and his son. And we wonder why so many people in
other countries hate us. What will Romney do, if elected? I sense that he may
continue this illegal practice. The president is not above the law, when the
president does something illegal, it is illegal. Why is Congress not
investigating this? Why is it not covered more in main stream media? Why are
not more people upset? Why is Sen. McCain alarmed that the information is
leaked and apparently not alarmed at the practice. King David of old had blood
on his hands for putting a commander at the front ranks where he was sure to be
As Obama put it, "The private sector is doing fine" ... by replacing
Obama didn't have any accomplishments to talk about in his last campaigning
as he hadn't done anything significant in the U.S. Senate and was unknown
in so many ways. He still doesn't have any positive accomplishments to
talk about except the lassoing of his party's U.S. Senators and
Representatives in the Obamacare process and showing how he did his community
action processes. You promise people the stars and if they get entitlements,
they are happy. His sidekicks haven't proven beneficial to him and have
given him misdirections and our people in the U.S. of America aren't yet
completely behind socialism as they have also tasted freedom. The two
don't go hand in hand. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness or
property is such a yearning for people, all around the world. I have lived and
been in many countries in all parts of the world and we have cause to have joy
and happiness our our land of freedoms through our Constitution and election
process for government when business and money making is possible without too
much intrusion. Mitt will instill that process again. Bush had 9/11 intrusion.
There is a reason he is called "no drama Obama". The man has no idea
what he is doing - "ignorance is bliss". If you stuck in some no
experience rookie as the CEO of a major corporation things would go great - for
a while - and then once reality set in and his policies (or lack thereof) took
hold the whole thing would implode.... sort of like Obama and our economy. I
think instead of "no drama Obama" a much better depiction would be
