The Republicans are extending a lot of effort to place their newest buckdancers front and center. The problem is, Mia Love – Like Scott of South Carolina isn’t buying the Lawn Jockey routine.
The usual suspects are trying to spin Mia’s speech last night into some sort of home run successful come out at the Debutante Ball – As if Snookie suddenly changed into Selma Hayek…
The problem is..Mrs Love didn’t bite on being the Party’s newest Tom in residence by doing the Herman Cain.
In that – Mia should get a little respect here, for not wallowing in the filth.
Taken for it’s content – Mia’s speech was nothing more than neutral pablum – I mean everybody loves Mom and Apple Pie. The attack on President Obama (for a change) wasn’t out-of-bounds – or an appeal to the dog-whistle racism of her party.
Let me tell you about the America I know. My parents immigrated to the U.S. with ten dollars in their pocket, believing that the America they had heard about really did exist. When times got tough they didn’t look to Washington, they looked within.
So the America I came to know was centered in personal responsibility and filled with the American dream.
The America I know is grounded in the determination found in patriots and pioneers, in small business owners with big ideas, in the farmers who work in the beauty of our landscape, in our heroic military and Olympians.
It’s in every child who looks at the seemingly impossible and says, “I can do that.” That is the America I know!
President Obama’s version of America is a divided one — 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 4 years ago, and no rhetoric, bumper sticker, or campaign ad can change that.
Mr. President I am here to tell you we are not buying what you are selling in 2012.
The American Dream is our story. It is a story of human struggle, 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; and 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.
With Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan we can restore the America we know and love. The world will know it, our children will tell it and our grandchildren will possess it for years to come!
No Mia – You didn’t build anything. It was already built by the sweat and blood of a lot of other Americans…
Before you got here from Haiti.
Perhaps that is why you got that sequence of events wrong starting with that “Woman on a bus..”
