Mia Love Republican National Convention speech
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Politics!
One of the smartest Republican rising stars is Mia Love, 37 year old mayor of Sarasota Springs, Utah.
They should have given her more time to talk at the convention.
BI says "her speech was refreshingly positive, focusing on her experience as the daughter of Haitian immigrants":
"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," Love told the audience. "So the America I came to know was centered in personal responsibility and filled with the American dream."
"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 continued. "Mr. President I am here to tell you we are not buying what you are selling in 2012."
I do wonder how her parents got from Haiti to Utah.
As of the census of 2000, there were 1,003 people, 271 households, and 249 families residing in the town.
By 2010, it was reclassified as a city, and had 17,000 people.
Why did this city grow so quickly?
