Paul Ryan Got It Right! See the Video of Paul Ryan’s Entire Speech at CPAC 2012

Bookmark and Share  On Thursday, Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, Chairman of the House Budget Committee, proved again to me why I was ready to endorse him back in August when he gave running for President some serious consideration.

Ryan’s CPAC speech was not a loud, gimmicky, Herman Cain-like sales pitch or slick, fast mouthed attempt to convince people to buy what they’re selling like Vince, pushing the “Schticky” on T.V.  It wasn’t a halftime speech or an uplifting series of cheers from a pep squad.  It was instead, a serious assessment of the truths we must face as a nation and as conservatives.  It was pure Paul Ryan….honest, hard hitting, even keeled and right on the mark.

Paul Ryan’s CPAC speech was a sobering statement about the ruin this nation faces by a single moment more of Barack Obama’s leadership but true to form, Paul Ryan did not ignore the blame deserved by his own Party and it was his criticism of conservatives that I appreciated the most and that the men running for running need to listen to the most.

In addressing the Republican attempt to unseat President Obama, Ryan stated;

“You know, it’s not going to be enough to condemn the President’s attempt to pit one group of Americans against another. Instead we must promote upward mobility, starting with solutions that speaks to our broken education system, broken immigration system, and broken safety net programs that foster dependency instead of helping to get back on to their feet.  In other words a bold reform agenda is our obligation. We have an obligation to provide the American people with a clear path that gets our nation back on track.  If we make the case effectively and win in November, than we will have the moral authority to enact the kind of fundamental reforms that America has not seen since Ronald Reagan’s first year.

That’s the moral case for going bold. But there’s also a strong political case for going bold.

The times call for leaders who understand the depth of the problems we face. And that offer far reaching reforms that are equal to the challenges.”

Anyone who has read my greatest criticisms about Mitt Romney knows, that his lack of boldness is I believe his greatest problem in  this election.  And at the same time, it is Newt Gingrich’s natural instincts to be bold which have led me to endorse him over Romney and the others in this race.

It is my belief that Mitt Romney’s attempt to play it safe is now failing him and I appreciate the fact that Paul Ryan took the time to articulate the need for conservatives to step forward and offer a bold Reagan-like vision for out future.  Now I just wish that the men remaining in the race for President will take Paul Ryan’s advice.

But that was just one of many good points that Ryan made in his speech. For the many other good points, I suggest you hear him yourself.  His speech is well worth the time it takes to hear his valuable words.

View Marco Rubio’s CPAC 2012 Speech in its Entirety

Bookmark and Share   As one of the opening speakers at the 2012 CPAC event, Florida Senator Marco Rubio demonstrated why he is the future of the G.O.P. and the nation.  He offered a speech that marked with a wonderful mix of  humor, sharp criticism and hard facts that highlighted the differences between the left and right and the exceptionalism of our nation which stems from the conservative ideology that founded it.

One of the best lines comes when Rubio related to the crowd in telling of how as a freshman in the Senate, he was initially floored by being in the presence of so many respected, prominent, national leaders and at times could not believe he was there, in the presence of all of these powerful people.  He then recalled how six months later he couldn’t help but wonder how those same people ever got there.

Rubio’s speech was hard-hitting and accurate and he delivered it so fluidly and naturally that one could not help but tell that they were listening to a future President of our nation.

Video of Rick Perry’s 2012 CPAC Speech

Bookmark and Share  Texas Governor Rick Perry offered the over three conservatives gathered in D.C. at CPAC a very fiery speech that focussed on what America will be if we continue down the path that President Obama is taking us.  He did so in large part with an emphasis on one of the issues nearest and dearest to the Lone Star State Governor…..the Tenth Amendment.
