So, everyone just loved Mia Love's speech at the Republican convention. Delegates, state GOP chairpersons, Sen. Orrin Hatch, Rep. Stephen Sandstrom, her husband, two political science professors, etc.
But what did Love actually say? No transcript of this "home run" speech? Fifty-two of her actual words (6 whopping percent of the 850-word article!) given to us by Lisa Riley-Roche, buried over 50 percent of the way through the piece ("Mia Love speech at Republican National Convention 'pitch perfect' on national stage," Aug. 28).
By comparison, the article on the same page about her opponent gets to the substance (his statements) in the second paragraph, not the 14th.
Could it be that everyone's just interested in "an attractive and articulate black woman" (Tim Hagle's words) rather than what she really has to say? Didn't we fall for this same thing four years ago with our current president?
