Best Speeches at the Republican National Convention Night Two

More speeches I enjoyed. 

I will go into detail about the Convention when I get news back from my contacts out there (mostly about boring committee work).  Until then, enjoy these speeches!

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)

Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH)

Secretary of State Condi Rice

Rep. Paul Ryan

Very few SoCons speaking here (Huckabee and Senator Rand Paul). 

And Condi Rice got the biggest applause until Rep. Paul Ryan spoke. She must be reading the Valley.  

I will go into detail about the convention on Sunday.

  1. I find it interesting that you consider Rep. Paul Ryan's speech to be one of the best speeches at the RNC when it contained a blatant lie of implication.

    Rep. Paul Ryan implied that Obama was to blame for the closure of the Janesville GM Plant after speaking there and "promising to keep it open."

    The problem is that the plant was closed in 2008, while Bush was still in charge, before Obama had even been elected. The business journal of Milwaukee stated as early as early as June 2008 that GM planned to close the plant. Obama could not save it, and blaming him for it's closure is akin to blaming a doctor for the death of a child before the child was even his patient.

    More over, Obama made no promise in the speech to which Ryan is referring. In February of that year, four months before the decision to close it was made public, and ten months before he took office, Obama said:
    “(But) I believe that if our government is there to support you, and give you the assistance you need to re-tool and make this transition, that this (General Motors) plant will be here for another hundred years,”
    That wasn't a promise. It was a statement of belief that the plant could be saved by government intervention. He is not to blame for George W Bush not intervening.


Welcome to the Valley! Please comment about the post and keep to the subject.

There is only one person (JSF) keeping track of comments, so as long as what you write is civil and close to the purpose of the post, you will see it.

Keep this in mind: Politics should not be Personal; then you have a place here.

Write! History will remember your words!
