**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.”

    you could make a case against obama but it would never fit in a nut shell. obviously anything bigger than a nut shell is too much for our abridged society. they get stuck on soundbites and empty promises. i wonder if obama’s flexibility starts today……so many promises to break and expiration of exemptions to process,

    1996 – 94,683,948
    2000 – 101,455,899 (+7%)
    2004 – 121,069,054 (+19%)
    2008 – 129,389,711 (+7%)
    2012 – 115,562,372 (-11%) <<< WTF?

    So after at least 7% voter growth every election since 1996, in 2012 we drop 11%!!!! Has anything like this ever happened before? If you look at voters as a % of population the drop is even more staggering.

    And yet, polling stations had to remain open extra hours because of their sheer volume of voters?


    If you look at normal voter growth (+7%), we should have had 138,446,990 voters in 2012.

    So we underperformed just normal growth by 22,884,618!

    What the hell happened to 22 million voters?

    I vote for alien abduction.

    I predict that in the next four years at least “one” nuclear warhead will be detonated in the middle east. And Barrack will be saying “I don’t know how this happened….

    Elections have consequences. It is clear that whatever happens the next 4 years, it cannot not be blamed on; 1. The Tea Party, 2. George Bush.

  • Grandma Perkins

    Uh, the Dems will be blaming Bush for the next 35-40 years.

    Think on this. America, where you can elect people like Obama, Elizabeth Warren,Jesse Jackson Jr., from a rubber room, I might add, Alan Grayson, but not people like Mitt Romney, Mia Love, Allen West, and Scott Brown.

    We have lost our collective minds, and our souls.

    We are going down a path, that will destroy us all.

    goodbye America, it was nice knowing you… statists voted themselves more binging on the treasury teat… but alas, there is no more money…

    bunker down, hide your weapons, ammo, stock up on food, gold… black clouds of entitlment zombies are on the horizon – more takers exist now than producers…

    you must go Galt
    you must starve the beast

    50 years of public “education” has now give America over to the statists…

    goodbye America

    “it cannot not be blamed on; 1. The Tea Party, 2. George Bush.” but they’ll try. questions whether the numbnuts who voted for o will buy into it or hit their limit of what they’ll willingly digest to maintain the delusion of obamabrilliance mega.

    “Uh, the Dems will be blaming Bush for the next 35-40 years.” fortunately there’s medication for that. and to think i wondered what happened to the former residents of the state and local mental healthcare facilities…..

  • Look-Out

    These elections were a joke. Total fraud. They got to pick and choose who they wanted to win each contest. Why do you think they bought up all that ammo recently? It occurred to them more than a few of us would figure it out. They’re prepared.

    We had been previously been warned about that…we prayed it would not be allowed…but God in his Sovereignty allowed it for good reason!

    We knew we lost when Akins talked rape. Then we had the first debate, and there was a chance. Murdock then talked rape, and we lost. Romney and Scott Brown had to talk about rape instead of the economy. Anti-big government conservatives were promoting the idea that the government could forbid a rape victim from getting an abortion. Conservative men made women worried about the economy more worried about their ability to get an abortion if they were raped. What on earth are these men doing talking casually about a woman’s worst nightmare????

    Rape is against the law, and first term abortion is settled law. Stop the madness in the republican primaries. This was not about reaching out to minorities. It is about republican men saying things that make everyone but them cringe.

    Read this in an article about Scott Brown’s loss but it is very apropo to the “election” in general –

    But all of it counted for nothing. He couldn’t beat “the machine.”

  • squeaky

    “But all of it counted for nothing. He couldn’t beat “the machine.”” should be a message to christie. to elect warren people had to ignore a lot. one of my friends actually thought that she was a ma native. people seem to get the point they want to hear and shut their ears to anything contrary.

  • Not Likely

    America rejects Jim Hoft.

    obama attended how many security briefings? linda mc mahons opponent chris murphy must have taken a page from o’s playbook.[ U.S. Rep. Christopher Murphy, D-5th, was absent 78 percent of the time during his committee and subcommittee hearings in the 110th Congress, according to a Hearst Connecticut Newspapers analysis that is consistent with a series of hard-hitting television ads by Murphy’s GOP Senate opponent, Linda McMahon.] murphy being a life long politico with no private sector experience……..why should he start now.

  • listingstarboard

    Its not the votes that counts, its who counts the votes.

    #23…when i walked out of the voting machine yesterday for the first time in my life i wondered if my vote would even be counted. i wonder if it was. everybody was saying they never saw so many people at the polls voting and yet we end up with fewer votes being cast.

  • ClinkinKY

    How did Mia Love lose when the last poll had her up by 10%?…hmmm.
