“Mr. Livdahl: Nothing in the doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches that ‘Prosperity equals piety.’ But, I will grant you that there are many Mormons who believe that is so.”

“Wow — Mitt Romney moved so fast from the far right to the left Obama Doctrine, he made me feel like Rip Van Winkle. I wonder if he knows that all of the terrorist organizations put together don’t have an aircraft carrier. But I’m sure Mitt’s offshore blind trust could finance one for them, and create a new tax category called perpetual profit, and he wouldn’t know anything about it.”

“If a Republican had committed the crimes that Obama has committed, he would be charged with the murder of those four in Libya and the Dems would scream 24 hours a day, 8 days a week for his hide.”

“One would think that in an apparent ‘first-world’ country of 320 million, the presidential debate administrators could hire a qualified moderator, say a professional ‘debate’ coach or university moderator. The conduct and abilities of the three previous moderators were nothing less than shameful when one comes right down to it. It’s bad enough the campaign ads are abominable without the debates turning into three-ring circuses.”

“President Obama has been photographed drinking beer on numerous occasions. Not too long ago, while drinking beer in a public establishment he admitted, and seems to be very proud of the fact, that he makes (or has someone else make) his own special brew of beer at the White House. What a thing to be proud of and boast about. Apparently he thinks beer drinking is an important aspect of his presidency and an asset to his campaigning for a second term in office. There are much more important topics that should be addressed like the fact that one in six Americans go to bed hungry at night because they still live in poverty and there are still millions of Americans without a job.”

“The state wants us to vote yes on (Prop) 204 to help our schools, but there is no guarantee that the money will even go to the schools. Gilbert wants a budget override to help out the schools. How do we get a budget override to help us with our budgets. Vote NO on both of these proposals and tell our state and cities that they should live within their budgets just like we have to.”

“Jeff Flake brought gridlock to the House. He should not be allowed to bring gridlock to the Senate. Arizona should be represented by a senator who is thoughtful and forward looking. We do not need a man whose career is built on negativity.”

“I’m a Republican and voted for Reagan. He lowered my taxes, but the deficit, percentage wise, went up even more than it has under Obama. I voted for both Bushes. Bush 41 lost because the economy was in bad shape. Bush 44 inherited a budget with a surplus, lowered taxes and ended with a great recession. I’m sure not in favor of lowering taxes again. The parties need to work together to cut the deficit to get the economy back on right road. Realistically that means steep cuts in the budget and raising taxes on those making over $250 K.”
