Mia Love’s Nothing Speech

29 Aug

Mia Love SpeechThe 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.

Mia Love to John Boener – Motown makes you move too?

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..”

    Sorry, but no matter what side of the fence you’re on your comments seem to be nothing intellegent; rather they are merely caustic drivel.

    Mia B. Love is the 3rd Mayor of the City of Saratoga Springs, sworn in January 8, 2010. A proven voice of the community, having served 6 years as a member of the Saratoga Springs City Council, Mayor Love makes civic improvement a focal point of her efforts. Promoting increased quality of life for city residents, preserving open spaces and securing the city’s financial future encompass her goals.

    Originally from New York and Connecticut, Mayor Love was raised to be a responsible member of her community. After attending the University of Hartford, West Hartford Connecticut, Mayor Love spent her early career with Sento Corporation where she learned to listen to clients and implement solutions to help them meet their goals. Her next career move was with Ecopass Corporation where she worked as a Product Marketing Manager. It was here where she gained the experience she uses today to drive economic development and resources initiatives for the City of Saratoga Springs.

    The mayor’s community efforts and service is also recognized and respected outside of our city. In early 2010, she was honored with a nomination for Utahan of the Year by the Salt Lake Tribune. This was a great compliment for the Mayor who is driven by her personal motto that “service is always the vehicle of any extraordinary event or change”.

    Mayor Love’s highest priority is her family. The Mayor and her husband Jason have lived in Saratoga Springs since 2001 and have three beautiful children who actively take advantage all that the Utah offers. An avid runner, Mayor Love enjoys staying healthy and participating in local and international running events.

    Oh by the way, Mia is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

    Just wanted to get the facts out there.

    If you’re black or Hispanic, you are brainwashed from birth to become a liberal. God forbid you explore the positions on both sides and realize the right is right for you. God bless her.

      Thank You for the laugh, Cheryl!

      If you are a conservative Republican – you are racist enough to believe those brown and black folks somehow can’t think for themselves.

    This was incredibly racist and offensive.
