Recap Day 2 Of The Republican National Convention
The Republican National Convention continued on yesterday in Tampa, Florida.
Day two, saw speeches from former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, former Gov. of Arkansas Mike Huckabee, the first Hispanic female governor of New Mexico Susana Martinez, and Mitt Romney’s running mate Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan.
Condoleeza Rice speech seemed to be about unifying America, as she spoke about growing up in the segregated south, and having hope to make it out.
Gov. Martinez also spoke about the promise that American has to offer. Rep. Paul Ryan’s speech, seemed to be anything but unifying.
Instead, Ryan continued to attack President Obama, for what he called failed policies. Yet, Ryan didn’t acknowledge his role in leading the House, to refuse to pass any of President Obama’s policies.
Rep. Paul Ryan, seems to play on people’s ignorance, with respect to not understanding the GOP in Congress, and their lack of cooperation with President Obama.
Guess, we don’t expect Ryan to speak about the record number Senate filibusters, 241 to be exact; which is more than any other Congress in U.S. history.
Overall Condoleeza Rice seemed to have the best speech, as she moved people by speaking about, what things need to be accomplished in the U.S., particularly with education.
Condoleeza was the star last night, and her stance on education, seemed to be far removed from this current GOP, who seems to be against anything designed to offer help, to those in need.
Rep. Paul Ryan seemed to speak more about his philosophy, and less about what his actual policy would be.
We’re still clueless as to the specific things the Republican party, will do to move America forward.
Instead, their policies seem to be parallel to what President George W. Bush did, which is loose regulations, cut taxes, and privatize health care.
None of these policies helped to promote growth in the economy.
In addition, the GOP seems to just be focused on cutting spending in areas that work to serve the elderly and poor, but increase defense spending; which has caused the deficit to balloon to high numbers.
The Republican National Convention, continues tonight with Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
We will continue to follow up with the Republican National Convention and keep you informed!
