Anyone who thought Ryan was going to trash Obama on a personal level were wrong.
We will leave such distasteful remarks for Obama, Biden and the rest of the left when they convene their Democrat National Convention next week in Charlotte, N.C.
The Democrats were very worried about the Ryan speech last night. Prior to acceptance speech an email was sent by Democrats saying:
"Don’t watch Paul Ryan’s convention speech tonight. I’ll tell you what he’ll say right here, right now: He’ll honor the Republican Party, which just adopted Todd Akin’s ban on abortion with no exceptions for rape as part of its official platform. He’ll promise to restore our country’s “traditional values,” like denying same-sex couples the right to enter into marriage. And he’s going to tell a roaring crowd that Mitt Romney will be the next president. He'll do it knowing this race is a dead heat after bombarding President Obama day after day with secret, special-interest money from billionaire financiers."
Well from watching the speech, did you see any form of bigotry? hatred? All you will get from the Democrat Party is smearing, scaring and race-baiting. With Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan you get solutions, optimism and common sense.
Some of the lines from the speech were pure class.
"Right now, 23 million men and women are struggling to find work. Twenty-three million people, unemployed or underemployed. Nearly one in six Americans is living 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?"
"What did the taxpayers get out of the Obama stimulus? More debt. That money wasn’t just spent and wasted – it was borrowed, spent, and wasted."
"It all started off with stirring speeches, Greek columns, the thrill of something new. Now all that’s left is a presidency adrift, surviving on slogans that already seem tired, grasping at a moment that has already passed, like a ship trying to sail on yesterday’s wind."
"After all that work, and in a bad economy, it sure doesn’t help to hear from their president that government gets the credit. What they deserve to hear is the truth: Yes, you did build that."
"President Obama is the kind of politician who puts promises on the record, and then calls that the record."My favourite line was this:
"College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life."We also know that Obama has this obsession with blaming George Bush for everything. Knowing that Ryan will probably be linked to Bush at the DNC in Charlotte next week; Ryan didn't solely blame Obama and did spread it around to Bush. but he was unequivocal in this statement:
"The issue is not the economy as Barack Obama inherited it, not the economy as he envisions it, but this economy as we are living it."After this speech, the thought of a debate between Ryan and Joe Biden becomes mouth- watering.
To quote Ryan one last time from last night: "Let's get this done"
