In the latest bit of developments going on in the Love for Congress Campaign (not real love by the way), what appears to be a potential decision to communicate to potential voters has become an opportunity for Mia Love to fill in for Glenn Beck on his show.
But of course she would. After all, like Glenn Beck, Love is a Mormon-convert and also, his audience is perfectly receptive to Love and probably voted out in droves in her 2012 campaign which she nearly won over Congressman Jim Matheson.
Here's Mia Love on the show:
“Please, do not give up hope,” she urged. “Our best days lie ahead of us…Although the light in our country has dimmed a little at certain times throughout American history, the United States has always remained that shining city on a hill. A nation conceived in liberty that people all around the world would sacrifice anything and everything to come to — this is still true today.”
She reminded of America’s accomplishments during dark times, like defeating slavery or communism.
“But America isn’t a great nation just because of its military might — its a great nation because of its American might and the values it was founded on — fiscal discipline, limited government, personal responsibility,” she said. “This is the time-tested formula that will put America back on the path to prosperity. I’m here to tell you that the American dream is not dead. The American dream lives on. You can achieve it by starting with $10 in your pocket. No one else to do it for you.”
Yes, Mia Love's message can definitely inspire people!
Ooooh, so exciting! I can hardly wait!
Seriously, what is it with Republican candidates for political office who continue to spout off "limited government" and "personal responsiblity" at a time where we need more government help with deeper Wall Street regulation and more stimulation in the economy. What does Mia Love think? Money grows from trees?
Besides, where in the U.S. Constitution was the nation founded on fiscal discipline, limited government and personal responsibility? One of the founding fathers, President George Washington, had no political party affiliation by the way.
Here's a look at the U.S. Constitution:
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.So in other words, Mia Love is basically a milder version of Michelle Bachmann.
And really folks, really. Personal responsibility and limited government? This is a candidate running for Congress?
Look, I know we're not wild about UT-04 Congressman Jim Matheson. He's voting a lot with Republicans these days BUT, he also had the toughest re-election fight of his life in 2012, nearly lost and counts as one additional seat for the Democratic Party to keep should they do everything in their power to retain their current members of Congress and win control over the House of Representatives in 2014. We can't afford to have another Tea Party Congressman/Congresswoman.
So in choosing the lesser of two evils, let's give support for Jim Matheson's re-election in 2014. One less House seat to worry about in 2014 is always a good thing. And what are the odds of there being a Democratic primary challenger to Congressman Matheson?
Besides, Mitt Romney didn't get elected in November 2012 and so now Mia Love no longer has the coattails of his candidacy to ride on anymore.
