Stunning speeches were giving at the RNC last night revealing a sense of nationalism and pride I haven’t seen in years. Also reveling truth were spoken about the nation affected by failed promises of the current administration. The speakers dropped on the table a dim future for all of us if the U.S. continues to fallows the same path for another four years of Obama’s administration. While Paul Ryan spoke from the heart in an undivided format to all Americans, without rendering social classes, race and incomes, Condoleezza Rice drop another shilling truth about the international policy at home and what to expect from the future. There is clear evidence guiding speaker speeches that there’s a great deal of anxiety, apprehension and worries about were the U.S. stand today and its rapid descend as a worldwide nation, albeit to a vanishing already impoverish middle class, stagnant economy, millions of American unemployed and trillions of dollars in national debt. Here is the transcript of both speakers and in the same web you can read any other transcripts.
“Then, in 2008, the global financial and economic crisis
would stun us. And it still reverberates as we deal with
unemployment and economic uncertainty and bad policies that cast
a pall over an American economy and a recovery that is
desperately needed at home and abroad.
And we have seen — we have seen that the desire for
liberty and freedom is, indeed, universal, as men and women in
the Middle East rise up to seize it. Yet, the promise of the
Arab spring is engulfed in uncertainty, internal strife, and
hostile neighbors our challenging the young, fragile democracy
of Iraq. Dictators in Iran and Syria butcher their people and
threat to regional security. Russia and China prevent a
response, and everyone asks, where does America stand?
Indeed — indeed, that is the question of the hour. Where
does America stand? You see when the friends or foes alike
don’t know the answer to that question, unambiguously and
clearly, the world is likely to be a more dangerous and chaotic
. . . . . . .
“ My fellow Americans, we do not have a choice. We cannot be
reluctant to lead and you cannot lead from behind.
Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan understand this reality. Our
well- being at home and our leadership abroad are inextricably
linked. They know what to do. They know that our friends and
allies must again be able to trust us. From Israel to Columbia,
from Poland to the Philippines, our allies and friends have to
know that we will be reliable and consistent and determined.
And our foes can have no reason to doubt our resolve because
peace really does come through strength.
Our military capability and our technological advantage
will be safe in Mitt Romney’s hands. We must work for an open,
global economy, and pursue free and fair trade, to grow our
exports and our influence abroad. If you are worried about the
rise of China, just consider this — the United States has
negotiated — the United States has ratified only three trade
agreements in the last few years, and those were negotiated in
the Bush administration.”
“President Barack Obama, came to office during an economic
crisis, as he has reminded us a time or two. Those are very
tough days. And any fair measure of his record has to take that
into account. My own state voted for President Obama. When he
talked about change, many people liked the sound of it.
Especially in Janesville where we were about to lose a major
factory. A lot of guys I went to high school with worked at
that G.M. plant. Right there at that plant, candidate Obama
said, “I believe that if our government is there to support you,
this plant will be here for another 100 years.”
That’s what he said in 2008. Well, as it turned out, that
plant didn’t last another year. It is locked up and empty to
this day. And that’s how it is in so many towns where the
recovery that was promised is no where in sight. Right now, 23
million men and women are struggling to find work. 23 million
people unemployed or underemployed. Nearly one in six Americans
is in poverty. Millions of young Americans have graduated from
college during the Obama presidency, ready to use their gifts
and get moving in life.
Half of them can’t find the work they studied for, or any
work at all. So here’s the question, without a change in
leadership, why would the next four years be any different from
the last four years?
The first troubling sign came with the stimulus. President
Obama’s first and best shot at fixing the economy. At a time
when he got everything he wanted under one party rule. It cost
$831 billion. The largest one-time expenditure ever by our
It went to companies like Solyndra, with their
gold-plated connections, subsidized jobs and make believe
The stimulus was a case of political patronage, corporate
welfare anachronism at their worst.
You — you the American people of this country were cut out
of the deal. What did taxpayers get out of the Obama stimulus?
More debt. That money wasn’t just spent and wasted, it was
borrowed, spent and wasted.”
