Even MORE Stunning

One of Mayor Anderson's Democrat panelists just told Mayor Anderson that one reason Utah Democrats are struggling is they often seem to be campaigning AGAINST the state and its people. I think he was looking Mayor Anderson right in the eyes when he said that.

You have some serious obsession issues with Rocky Anderson. The Paul Rolly piece and Rocky's own actions demonstrate that he probably isn't planning on running for reelection. He has set his goals on something else and is going out with a bang full of making grandiose statements and posturing. The rest of us will have to wait and see what he plans next and you may have to shift your obsession to something or someone more healthy than Rocky Anderson.

Whether or not that comment was directed at Rocky doesn't really matter to me.

The fact is is that you're not gonna convince Utah Republicans to switch parties. A state that has the highest approval rating for a presidency that has crashed and burned surely is a sign that indoctrination, not informed choices, is at play here.

The best thing Dems can do is ride out the last of this era that has been controlled by the indoctrinated classes and continue to be the party of transplants. Watering down Democratic values to make them more palatable to Mormon voters only creates pseudo-Democrats like Jim Matheson. As SLC and other parts of Utah become more cosmopolitan, you will likely see Democrats - in their unabashed form - take permanent hold in Utah politics.

Although it looks as though Rocky might not run again I predict he will announce late in the game that he is going after another term.

I especially think this will happen if Eric Jergensen decides to take the Mayor position. Mayor Anderson and Eric butt heads a lot and Rocky will not want to see Councilmen Jergensen become Mayor Jergensen.

I say ERIC FOR MAYOR. Rocky Anderson came out with big guns in his beloved District 3 to try and get Cliff Lyon...(Janneke House) elected. To no avail. It goes to show that District 3 looks for the better person not just party affiliation.

The Profit says~

Rocky will say he isn't running, but Rocky will run. Someone said his eye is on something bigger. Maybe running for Miss America.

Rocky will run. He cannot help himself, the worm will turn, Rocky will looooose!!!!

Mayor Jergensen--maybe there is hope for this city yet. I can only hope Rocky does set his sites on "something bigger"-not to mention something far far away from here.
