**Ugh** Mia Love Loses Utah Congressional Race

And with Mia Love’s loss the GOP slaughter is complete…

Conservative Mia Love lost a close race in Utah tonight.
The Washington Post reported:

Rep. Jim Matheson (D-Utah) survived a tough challenge from Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love (R), edging out the challenger by little more than a single percentage point.

With all precincts reporting, Matheson led Love by less than 3,000 votes — a margin so slim that the Associated Press had yet to call the race in favor of the Democrat. But Love conceded early Wednesday morning, offering Matheson her congratulations and thanking her supporters.

“Congratulations to Jim on a hard-fought victory,” Love said in a statement. “It was a close race, but ultimately the voters of Utah have spoken. I want to thank the hundreds of volunteers and staff who worked tirelessly for my campaign, and am humbled by their dedication and commitment to the betterment of Utah and our nation. I plan on continuing to work on promoting conservative issues and look forward to returning to Saratoga Springs and spending more time with my family.”

    Everything is upside down and inside out. Nothing is as it should have been. Disaster.
    We face a very frightening future.

    What is wrong with this country? It is doomed.

    How on earth did Mia Love lose???

    Had she been a Democrat and lost against a Republican, it would surely and immediately be blamed on racism.

  • gracepmc

    Loves loss reflects the decline of America on the national level. Stupid spoiled props who deserve who they coed for.

    What is wrong with this country?

    My gut tells me the virtual leftist takeover of the education system has a lot to do with it.

    Crying shame. I guess we have reached the tipping point. Time to stand up, lift our chins and take it like a man.

    It is because she said a damn crazy thing about legit rape.

    Wasn’t she far ahead in the polls? Nothing that happened tonight made any sense. Exit polls had Romney winning Independent votes in VA by 13 points but he lost? How is that mathematically possible? Rasmussen tells us the electorate is R+6 yet we get crushed on election day?

    Seriously, how the hell did Obama win? Romney was speaking to 30,000. Obama was speaking to 2500. I would claim cheating but how do you cheat at this level?

    Is Obama the AntiChrist? What other possible explanation can there be? There were no Obama yard signs. Romney yard signs were everywhere. Republican enthusiasm was off charts. Obama was losing Independents by 15 and 20 points everywhere.

    It simply does not make sense.

    Geez~another 4 years without a pres but a black muslim tyrant…….the American people deserve what they get

    My 10 yr old told me yesterday that one of her girl scout mates said she wanted to spit on a picture of Mitt Romney. Her mom is a Chicago Public School teacher, so you know where this child’s hostility comes from. Here in Chicago there is no hope, except to move far away.

    alas, you offered the perfect statement,
    “And with Mia Love’s loss the GOP slaughter is complete…”

    I can’t sleep, I don’t know when I’ll be able to go to sleep
    (like Sam talking to Rick in “Casablanca”)
    the last time I felt like this was 9/11/2001

    after all the special elections, Governor victories and the 2010 mid-term election, very awful, hard truths need to be faced-
    the long list of inexplicable Senate defeats has me trembling in fear,
    yes really.

    Rush liked to say, he’ll let us know when it’s time to panic, well, no need to say it now-
    we were teetering on the ledge and now we are falling with nothing left but the thud.

    an old joke: a man jumps off a skyscraper and as he’s passing the 57th floor, an office worker looks out the window and yells out, “hey, how’s it going?” the man replies, “so far, so good.”
    America is now that man falling to his death.

    For God’s sakes, Maryland voted to allow invaders in-state tuition! So, we are now in the routine habit of voting for our own destruction.
    It’s a Communist/Islamist wet dream come true.

    As Lincoln famously said to his Cabinet, “We cannot escape history…”
    We have suffered a catastrophe with a worst catastrophe coming.
    Obamacare is now PERMANENT. the Keystone Pipeline veto is now PERMANENT. America’s energy resources are now in PERMANENT FREEFALL. Prices for everything are PERMANENTLY on the rise. We will suffer a total financial collapse, complete with mass chaos.

    Mideast strife and islamic terrorism will continue to rise, Israel must now go it alone, Iran will not give up their nuclear ambitions and North Korea will threaten Japan and China will threaten Taiwan, and have I forgotten anything? I’m just popping off the easy ones.

    With our military now PERMANENTLY being dismantled,
    Will the wolves circling America now determine when it’s the best time to launch a First Strike, assured that the American President will surrender to nuclear blackmail?

    I don’t want to hear any talk about restructuring the now PROVEN WORTHLESS! repubican party, or even starting a New Tea Party. That opportunity has passed.

    It’s DIVORCE NOW, or go down the toilet with the Union of Socialist States of Amerika.
    I say, All Hail the birth of the New FREE STATES of AMERICA- “A New Birth of Freedom”
    and the hell with any delay of the inevitable. we must avoid the total death of Liberty.
    “Those who have known Liberty and Lost It, never saw it again” -who said that?

    This will be a HELLUVA test for our beloved talk radio show hosts, won’t it?

    Time to start withholding taxes from Washington. Let them deal with less money to waste

  • mike191

    Fraud, more conumers than producers ,and a Media that makes Pravada proud has made this Republic insolvent and impotent.

  • squeaky

    i read a previous opinion well before the selection of the republican candidate. the thought was that the number of people who would choose to sit out the election if a mormon was the candidate outweighed those who would sit out the election with obama as the candidate. Mia is also mormon so…….. i’ve heard a lot of reasons given for not voting Romney and i guess people went with the semi-known candidate who’s direction they might not like but it’s a known direction. downwardly mobile rules the day.

  • Look-Out

    Now I’m sure of fraud. Mia was way up, maybe 9 pts. last I heard.

    This is what happens when you give power to a Communist. You’ve voted in your last election. The commies run this country now.
