Paul Ryan’s speech at the Republican National Convention
Paul Ryan took to the stage at roughly 10:25 last night to accept his nomination as Republican candidate for Vice President of the United States and quite frankly, he knocked it out of the park last night.
Paul Ryan came out swinging and he didn’t let up; hammering the Obama regime for broken promises, failed leadership, the economy, jobs, Obamacare, not passing a budget, not taking responsibility, passing the buck, the failed stimulus and the money funneled to Democrat donors, class warfare politics, Solyndra and make believe markets, the central planners in our government trying run our live from afar, and just about everything you could think of.
I am sure I left something out, but perhaps my favorite moment was when he called Barack Obama out on Medicare. Barack Obama has been telling everyone who could listen that Paul Ryan’s budget was a radical, extremist, irresponsible budget which would end Medicare as we know it. Paul Ryan reminded the American people last night that the only person who has actually cut Medicare was Barack Obama himself and declared that the biggest threat to Medicare was Obamacare. He turned the tables on Barack Obama on this issue and promised that this Medicare fight was a battle the Republicans will win.
Here is the video of his speech, if you haven’t seen it is well worth listening to. Mitt Romney is going to have a tough time trying to beat this:
