RUSH: Let’s grab sound bite number 12. Let’s do three Mia Loves, because we did get it last night, long before what is considered primetime — and this was only on Fox. MSNBC didn’t carry it, NBC didn’t carry it, CBS, ABC, didn’t carry it, CNN was split screening with the hurricane. This did not get wide play. Mia Love is African-American. She is from Utah. She’s a congressional candidate. She is running against an entrenched Democrat out there, who’s apparently pretty popular. She’s the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and she addressed the convention. She started off introducing herself and talking about American exceptionalism.

LOVE: My parents immigrated to this country with ten dollars in their pocket and a hope that the America they heard about really did exist. When tough times came, they didn’t look to Washington. They looked within. The America I know is grounded in the determination found in patriots and pioneers, in small businesses with big ideas. It’s found in the farmers who work in the beauty of our landscapes and our heroic military. It’s found in the Olympic athletes and every child who looks at the seemingly impossible and says, “I can do that.” That’s the America I know. (applause)

RUSH: We edited the applause, but it went on and on and on. The New York Times and the LA Times, “Well, they just put these brown people up to make the party look like it’s diverse, and they put brown delegates in the front row,” is what Chuck Todd said “they put the brown delegates in the front row to make it look like they’re diverse.” They’re all racist. They’re all racist thugs. They all are. They’re the ones who are the bigots. What in the world is there to disagree with what she just said? This woman loves her country. And for that, because she’s black, she got tarred and feathered all over the Internet, her Wikipedia entry was forged. Yeah. It’s outrageous. I chalk this up to they’ve gotta be scared to death. They have to be scared. They’re worried about the Mia Loves; they’re worried about Clarence Thomas; they’re worried about Artur Davis; they’re worried about this, these defectors.

Here’s more. This is where Mia Love’s speech really took off. She went after America’s problem: Barack Obama.

LOVE: President Obama’s version of America is a divided one, often pitting us against each other based on income level, gender, and social status. His policies have failed us. We’re not better off than we were four years ago — and no rhetoric, bumper sticker, or Hollywood campaign ad can change that.

CONVENTION: (cheers and applause)

RUSH: Right on! Right on!

LOVE: Mr. President, I’m here to tell you: The American people are awake, and we’re not buying what you’re selling in 2012.

CONVENTION: (cheers and applause)

RUSH: Let’s hear it for Mia Love!

CONVENTION: (cheers and applause)

Saratoga Springs, Utah, mayor running for Congress. She’s an African-American. She loves her country and thinks the biggest problem it faces is Barack Obama. She was on around six o’clock, I think, six or seven, long before the primetime stuff hit. And here’s the last bite that we have. This really, really gets to the libs. She references Dr. King and Rosa Parks.

LOVE: The American dream isn’t just my story. It isn’t just your story. It’s our story. It’s a story of human struggle, standing up and striving for more. Our story has been told for over 200 years, with small steps and giant leaps. From a woman on a bus, to a man with a dream. From the bravery of the Greatest Generation, to the innovators and entrepreneurs of today. This is our story! This is our America! This is the America we know because: We Built It!

CONVENTION: (cheers and applause)

RUSH: Right on, right on. Now, you understand…?


RUSH: You understand why MSNBC wouldn’t want their viewers to see Mia Love? You understand why NBC wouldn’t want their viewers to see Mia Love? Or CBS or ABC or the New York Times or the Washington Post?
