Is Mike Lee (R-Utah) really that stupid?

Just watching the Senate hearings on C-Span, and the guy just comes off as a dunce to me. And not an affable one, either.

Any Utahians have any insight into him?

1. Most Likely he is

But speculating as to the reason would be impolite.

2. Mile Lee is an idiot

This man is a tea party member and got elected because a very conservative GOP senator was not conservative enough for his state

3. And while we're at it, Ted Cruz doesn't seem to be a rocket scientist, either.

Both of these guys have a way of talking down that irks me.

6. you don't like that term?

that's how I describe my job - rocket surgery.

Because I stack chairs, haul tables, empty trash and clean toilets for a living.

Very technical stuff.

It's a combination of "rocket science" and "brain surgery" and when one is a rocket scientist AND a brain surgeon, it is simpler and quicker to just say you are a "rocket surgeon".

9. I saw this earlier but didn't have time to post.

Mike Lee is a teabagger who failed at trying to form a political pac and consequently walked away from a $400,000 mortgage loan. He then decided to try his hand at politics. Conveniently assuming the, then, popular tea party mantle and painting Bennett as no longer effective was instrumental in his winning the election. He describes himself as a defender of the Constitution.

One of his first actions on the floor of the Senate was to wave the Constitution in the air while proclaiming the child labor laws are unconstitutional. He's also a strong proponent of bringing tar sands oil mines to Utah. That says all I need to know about Mike Lee. He's a nasty self-serving little corporate maggot who is more interested in filling his pockets than in serving the best interests of the people of Utah.
