Mia Love: GOP rockstar, Dem nightmare


Mia Love snagged a prime-time spot at the RNC convention tonight and brought down the house. She started with this video about giving back:

“Let me tell you about the America I know'” she started. “My parents immigrated to the U.S. believing that the
America they had heard about really did exist. When times got tough they did not look to Washington,
they looked within.”

She got loud applause and cheering throughout her entire speech, sending the crowd wild as she outlined Obama’s America.

“President Obama’s version of America is a divided one, often pitting us against each other based on our
income level, gender, and social status. His policies have failed. We are not better off than we were
four years ago and no rhetoric, bumper sticker, or Hollywood ad campaign can change that.

Enthusiastic cheers followed this zinger.

“Mr. President I am here to tell you – we are not buying what you are selling in 2012.

She gave a shout-out to Rosa Parks and Neal Armstrong.

“Why? Because we know that the American dream is not just my story, and it is not just your story, it is
our story. It is a story of human struggle – of standing up and striving for more. It’s been told for over
200 years with small steps and giant leaps: from a woman on a bus to a man with a dream; from the
bravery of the greatest generation to the entrepreneurs of today. This is our story – this is the America
we know because we built it.

At that point, the cheering became too loud for her to finish. Finally, she concluded:

“With Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan we can revive the American story we know and love. The world will
know it, our children will tell it, and our grandchildren will possess it for years to come!”

Watch for yourself.

    Praise all that is holy, I think we’re finally done with Jim-bo !

    Loved it. Good for her!

    I agree Mia made a very effective debut to a national audience. I hope there are at least few Utah Republican voters who will understand how important it is for Utah and America to scour the system of a huge number Democrats from federal office in November… that includes opportunist politicians like Jim Matheson.

  4. Sarah Says:

    She really didn’t do that great. Seems fake,

  5. Sue Connor Says:

    Not enough experience for all the hoopla – this mayor from small town Syracuse.

    Yea, Whoopee. . . One more ultra conservative, right wing, dichotomous thinking, uncompromising representative to embarrass sensible intelligent Utahn residents who have the misfortune to live in this red meathead state. Chosen by the party who elected George W. and nominated Sara Palin. Need I say more?

    Well, JB, if you dislike your options in Utah so very much, why don’t you run? You have all the answers, right?

    JB criticizing someone for what he calls “dichotomous thinking” is more than a little bit ironic – a case of projection, most likely.
