If there are any Freepers from Utah, I was wondering what they thought of the upcoming primary between Orrin Hatch and Dan Liljenquist and which candidate he or she supports? Also, will they place Liljenquest signs in their front yards?
I look forward to responses. Nothing beats local perspective in such things.
I think there are 2.
I went to Utah once about 30 years ago and floated in the salt lake. Does that count? Oh yes and I saw the salt flats in the desert where they race cars. Our A/C went out too while driving and my GF at the time went into a panic and ran out of the car into the desert. But that’s women for you. They vote for a POTUS almost always based on looks and run out into a desert because the A/C in a car breaks down. Oh yes honey, doing that will most certainly help you cool down.
And you didn’t marry her because...
deserts get really cold at night
I’m from Utah. Yes, I’d put a sign in my front yard. But I think Hatch will win. The convention voters are more conservative than the primary voters. Primary voters who don’t pay attention will go into the booth and recognize Hatch’s name and his perceived conservatism (which he will press in advertising over and over again until June.
In the caucuses I was very surprised at the support for Hatch. Fully 2/3 of the attendees supported Orrin, and I like to think that my precinct is quite a conservative one.
Do I want Hatch to win? No. Hatch got religion when Bennett lost, and I think he’ll lose it as soon as he gets back to Washington.
What, do I have to speak for all Utahns?
Utah is like many other states. The population across the state is very conservative. Lots of guns, ATV’s and pickup trucks. Hard working people who make good neighbors and want the government to leave them alone.
And then there’s the big liberal city that has a large impact on election day.
Will Hatch go down in the primary? He could. He’s very old and Bob Bennett got chopped 2 years ago. If this is a referendum on incumbents across the country, Hatch is quite vulnerable.
If you try over at DU you might find one named Romney.
...sick to death of hatch...hope he flames out in the primary..
For his part, Inglis simply engaged in a bit of double-talk, emphasizing the least threatening aspect of the center: Its a state-of-the-art facility designed to support the intelligence community in its mission to, in turn, enable and protect the nations cybersecurity. While cybersecurity will certainly be among the areas focused on in Bluffdale, what is collected, how its collected, and what is done with the material are far more important issues. Battling hackers makes for a nice coverits easy to explain, and who could be against it? Then the reporters turned to Hatch, who proudly described the center as a great tribute to Utah, then added, I cant tell you a lot about what theyre going to be doing, because its highly classified.
And then there was this anomaly: Although this was supposedly the official ground-breaking for the nations largest and most expensive cybersecurity project, no one from the Department of Homeland Security, the agency responsible for protecting civilian networks from cyberattack, spoke from the lectern. In fact, the official whod originally introduced the data center, at a press conference in Salt Lake City in October 2009, had nothing to do with cybersecurity. It was Glenn A. Gaffney, deputy director of national intelligence for collection, a man who had spent almost his entire career at the CIA. As head of collection for the intelligence community, he managed the countrys human and electronic spies. http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2012/03/ff_nsadatacenter/all/1
This is where you’ll find other folks from Utah (Ignore the posts from “seekthetruth”. She posts on everybody’s boards.)
Y’all might try to get a little more friendly, like my FRiends here in North Carolina. We treat our board like an extended party line phone call.
Utah Freepers-here’s the real question: can Mia Love win in the general election?
I thought that you were really weird, having a woman for a grandfather- then I figured out what you were talking about.
LOL! The result of lazy typing! GF = GIRLFRIEND!!!! Actually maybe she was my Grandfather as he was a nut as well. He would be perfectly sane and very polite all year long, but New years eve he would get drunk off his skull and run naked down the street lol! True story! That was the only time he ever drank. He would down a pint of whiskey and go crazy and forget all about it by New years day LOL!
Utah Freeper here. Despise Hatch something fierce, ever since his comments about being friends with the Democrats in general and Teddy Kennedy in particular. Yes he’s in trouble. Damn shame that most conservatives elected to Washington pull off their masks as they fly over the Mississippi river going there.

I think it’s a case of Patomic Fever, where people become immersed in D.C. culture and forget where they came from.
He went to B.Y.U. and worked for Bain Consulting is all I know about him but I don’t live in Utah though.
