Charismatic Utah Congressional candidate, Mia Love kicked off the RNC convention, Tuesday night, with a powerful speech that had the audience on their feet cheering. Love, a rising star in the Republican party, would if elected, be the first black Republican woman ever elected to congress.
Transcript from the speech, via The Daily Caller:
“Let me tell you about the America I know,” Love began. “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,” she said.
“So the America I came to know was centered in personal responsibility and filled with the American dream,” she said.
As Love went on to attack President Barack Obama, the crowd continually interrupted her, cheering wildly.
“President Obama’s version of America is a divided one — pitting us against each other based on our income level, gender, and social status,” she said. “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,” she said.
An important reminder from Paul Mirengoff of Powerline:
This is a voice we need in Washington. However, she faces a tough race against a popular incumbent Democrat.
