It's pretty clear that Lockhart is running for governor. That was just her
first political speach/attack in her campaign.
Herbert's interminable delay in saying NO! to expanded medicare has raised
questions in my mind about his suitability to continue to serve as governor.
A bloody fight between Lockhart and Herbert could set the stage for Governor
Matheson's election in 2016. As they say, when your enemies are fighting
each other, stay out of their way.
Neither the Governor nor Speaker Lockhart are qualified to lead this State.
Yes, the Governor has done some things, but he hesitates until he knows which
way the wind blows. A leader "leads". A leader does not care what is
politically correct, but only what is correct. A leader knows what the
Constitution says about the duties of the Federal Government. A leader knows
whether the Federal Government can compel a State to act as its agent in forcing
something like ObamaCare on the people of that State. A leader doesn't
wait to see what other States do or what people think. A leader knows when it is
his duty to tell the Federal Government to take night courses on the
Constitution, preferably taught by a real Constitutional scholar, not by Barrack
Obama.Speaker Lockhart used extremely poor taste and poor judgement
when she attacked the Governor. She, very obviously, doesn't know how to
lead. She should be ashamed of herself.Jim Matheson may want his
father's office, but he refuses to do anything at any time without
I agree. When I first heard her diatribe I was shocked. But I didn't
know she was looking to replace him. Later when I heard that she wanted to be
Governor it made more sense. But it was absolutely the wrong venue for an
attack like that. She should not be campaigning in the opening statements of
the Legislature.I will have a hard time voting for her after seeing
that side of her.Getting the Legislature off on a divisive note like
that was not good for the mood and the prospects for progress and cooperation
the whole session. It just gets everybody in attack mode and campaign mode
already. We need them to work for the people for awhile before they all dig in
and start their personal campaigns.
I couldn't figure what her problem was, but now that I know she wants to be
governor, I get it. She will never get my vote. Using her office to
get another office is just plain wrong.
It was fun to watch, though.
Oh...Help us all if he's re-elected.
It was shocking to hear her go at the governor. Talk about lack of civility!
There was a letter from Frank Overfelt in Yesterday's paper about civility.
I guess that only applies on viewpoints. His letter could have applied to
Lockhart. Lockhart's attack on Herbert was very uncivil. It lacked
propriety. Her views made me very uncomfortable. But then she will be excused
because she is a member of the ruling party, but the poor people at the LBGT
rally will be vilified for their behavior? Go figure.
