Folks, just heard, Hatch in a run off ! Liljenquist and Tea Partiers did it !!!
“The idea that one is automatically a political liberal because they are a Mormon is ridiculous. Dumb as it is, there are a few fanatics that insist this is true...”
I know that personally I don’t want a Mormon PRESIDENT; however, you’re missing the point. Romney is a lying liberal as evidenced by his WORKS in government.
It is not inconsistent to support a Mormon ousting another Mormon as a UTAH senator. Whomever, Utah nominates - it is an axiom that it will be a Mormon given that it is a Mormon STATE.
THAT IS NOT THE SAME AS NOMINATING A MORMON PRESIDENT.
This is simple logic. It is not difficult for any thinking person to see the difference between the two situations.
Orrin shoul take his lavish government pension, and royalties from his music and ride off into the sunset. Its time for a new generation to take his seat.
I don’t understand why these old men that have been there for a million years don’t want to retire. What’s up with that—huge egos? They are all part of the problems we now have in this country. Crossing the aisle too many times to advance the liberal agenda. Do you hear me John McCain? Go away.
Hi, Colofornian. Please don’t add me to this ping list. The only reason I posed the questions to Longbow1969 in post #37 is that up until his post #16 there was not a single mention of Mormons or Mormonism, and this topic had absolutely nothing to do with either. It was he, Longbow, who took the thread completely off-topic by introducing that discussion, and in a way that appeared inflammatory and specifically engineered to derail the entire thread into exactly the direction it has gone. The perfect example of the rhetorical anthill kicking to which I referred in #37.
As for me, I have absolutely no interest in discussions of Mormons or Mormonism. I was actually interested in the original Orrin Hatch vs. Dan Liljenquist topic, so I quit reading the thread when it became something entirely otherwise.
If topic hijacking was Longbow’s intent, he has certainly succeeded. He’d have a very difficult time convincing me that this wasn’t his intention. It was so predictable a child would have seen it coming.
We had a Mormon work for our company a few years ago. He was very young and newly married. He had the best work ethic, was a strong family man and very conservative. Mormons are good people that we want on our side. I don’t have a problem with it. I want someone that knows how to turn the economy around and run a business. I think Romney has those qualifications though I prefer Newt and will vote for Newt in the Texas primary.
Maybe he should have acted like a lady and kept his arrogant thoughts to himself.
He can join the biggest loser whiner-Arlen Spector. Term limits.
Spot on and good analogy. I talk to liberals all the time and they’re just not self-aware. They use subtle code words that have deep meaning to them, but are utter nonsense. You present facts and they start double talking.
Orrin, your chickens have come home to hatch, or something like that.
When the media gets onto the Mormanism angle, the repubs need to fight back with details of BO’s Muslim upbringing and the makeup of the Rev. Wright’s church(Muslims/”former” Muslims and that black theology they taught there. It could be very damaging to BO if someone would actually talk about it this time.
4 am reference bump! ;-)
They did spare us an Al Gore Presidency. What’s the background on Liljenquist? Some posters seem to indicate that he’s not legit. What’s the story?
Just for measuring the media onslaught, watch for the media to expose what the MomronISM high priesthood is, and relating that to the blasphemy of usurping the role of Christ as THE ONLY Melchizedek high priest. When that reaches Catholic minds and Baptist attention Milt will be lucky to get 15% of the Christian vote from the middle. Look for the Constitution Party candidate to get an unusually high vote percentage as indication of where the Christian vote went when the GOPe tried to shove the liberal slug Rominy down our collective throats.
This is idiocy, absolute idiocy.
Some clown wraps himself in the Tea Party mantle, and everyone is glad Hatch has to face him in a primary?
Hatch is a 100% ACU rating holder, along with Rubio, DeMint and a few others, and has a 99% Club For Growth rating. He has been carrying the Conservative water in DC since before many here were born.
Don;t worry about Hatch, he will win a primary in a landslide, thank God. Any so-called Conservative who is against Hatch is simply a self-agrandizing fool or off their Thorazine!
It’s about time we save our dollars and energy for defeating Obama in the Fall.
Hatch is a 100% ACU rating holder, along with Rubio, DeMint and a few others, and has a 99% Club For Growth rating.
There is going to be a lot of pressure on good conservatives like Coburn and Demint to endorse Hatch. If they can’t oppose him, I hope as many as possible can stay neutral. Hatch has been a good guy a majority of the time, but in dozens of cases HE HAS LINED UP WITH THE DEMOCRATS AGAINST US!!
Go Tea Party !!
Good bye Booby-Hatch!
Like too many alleged “Conservatives”, you never know where this guy would land on any issue.
He MIGHT get it right, but is just as likely to go completely wrong.
If there was anything consistent about him you could work with him, knowing when he would support you
But he’s so random he must flip a coin to decide his stand on an issue.
