Not surprisingly it was led by none other than vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan. I take back everything bad I ever said about him! He’s managed to do the impossible, make Medicare a positive issue for Republicans.
His zinger, “We know the difference between saving a program and raiding one,”
portraying ObamaCare as looting Medicare was brilliant.
Ryan also made serious inroads with the CENGA’s (College Educated Not Going Anywhere) demographic. Laying out a vision for a prosperous future where success is encouraged, not punished. Where there are jobs again in a growing economy and pointing out that they should not be living at home “with a faded Obama poster on their bedroom wall.”
What a great speech outlining what must be done to restore fiscal sanity and put the country back on the path to prosperity.
She made points on how America must lead and our allies must be able to depend on us.
I believe that the days of America being the “world’s policeman” should be over- but understand that demographic is alive and well in the Republican Party- and who better to convey that vision than the former Secretary of State.
As the first Hispanic Female Governor, she’s lived the immigrant “rags to riches” American Dream. Growing up in a border town with very modest means, parents who built a successful business through hard work and determination, becoming a lawyer, taking on the political establishment and standing on principles to win elections.
She called out Obama- “He promised to bring us all together, to cut unemployment, to pass immigration reform and even cut the deficit in half, all in his first year. Do you remember that? But he hasn’t even come close. He hasn’t even passed a budget in three years.”
That pretty much summed up Obama’s broken promises.
How come the members from the “Lamestream Media” is that the Republicans are the party of the “Old White Guy?” They are showing the Nation that we are a party of ideas and inclusiveness…where your skin color doesn’t matter. Where people can be a success in this Country through hard work, determination and with a little luck- If the Government just gets out of the way and rewards success and doesn’t punish it.
All Mitt Romney has to do tonight is not say anything stupid and this convention will be a smash success.
