RickRick91 saidRice is guilty of gross incompetence.
She absolutely did NOT do enough to try to prevent 9-11.
The idea that she should be revered by some idiots is just unbelievable.
911 was plotted and planned under the the Clinton admin.
Do you think they came up with all that in the short time while Bush was president. They were illegals in our country learning to fly in our schools all during Clinton's time in office. He was too busy with his celebrity and involved with the Monica scandal and the Blewinsky he got while ducking the media and Hillary, instead of reading all the intell he had on desk prior to 911. Read and learn the facts.
Her speech might have upset some, but the truth hurts.
She went back to our constitution and why our country was great. Our country is the land of opportunity for those who work hard. Not a land of freebies and healthcare to all who don't. She never mentioned Obama's name once in her speech, but she made it clear why we are in so much more trouble since he came to office. She stated so many facts about what is wrong with our country AND what we need to do to fix it. The Rep from Mexico was great as well. She took her state from being so far in debt to a solid place without raising taxes. She and Ryan spoke of Obama;s promises before his election and how they failed. He asked American's to vote for him and said he would turn the economy around. He failed and added more debt to this country than any other president.
Welfare was meant to be a hand up not a way of life in this country. Too many receive it and do absolutely nothing with their lives, but they all have the best TV's and cell phones money can buy. Many never worked and never plan to do so-sad fact. We live in a free society-they do not deserve the exact same healthcare and benefits as those who worked hard and sacrificed so much for their families as mine did. We are not a socialist country. My parents are of Italian American decent. I am only the second generation here. They entered the country legally as children and had NO hand out or benefits or anything bilingual to aid them, yet my Dad worked so hard to raise 5 boys, all went onto college. My one grandfather was a longshoreman the other a laborer who taught music as well. My dad knew how to speak the language, but my mom did not. They went to Catholic School and the nuns just sat her next to another student and she had to work extremely hard at it. They both have no discernible accent today. They still hold onto family traditions, but they can speak Italian. They knew America is a melting pot and to succeed you must assimilate. When my parents rented they improved the building they lived in and took pride in a job well done. They worked long, hard hours with a strong work ethic they instilled in all of us. Today youth has even more opportunity. In many states the less fortunate can still go to school with free tuition, books dormitory if they work hard and maintain a B average. When I went to school we did not qualify for financial aid. We worked hard for little money given in academic scholarships and some athletic scholarships. We were not given the same advantages that many received for free when I went to school. We didn't sit home and complain about it. We all worked 25-30 hours during school and full time in summers. It helped having work experience on our resume's. Many young people today graduate and expect a job paying 100K without ever having worked a job?? Before I was born my dad worked full time and went to college at night to receive his degree in architecture. It was much harder for him then it is now. I miss him every day of my life.
I believe Condi would make a great president. I wish she was the Repub's choice for VP!
Ryan started slow but ended stronger, pointing out why our country needs medicare, money for those who can no longer work -money for those who are not old, or disabled- NOT younger healthy, lazy Americans who all want something for nothing. ( What will become of all the autistic, classified and learning disabled Americans we have now?? We will need medicare more than ever.) A president can't keep taking money from funds set aside for crisis and then fail in not returning them!! Obama's stimulus package took borrowed money put us further in debt and did nothing for the economy-it was an epic fail. He will go down in history as one of the worst presidents next to Jimmy Carter.
If Obama continues to make it harder for the Americans who have the money who create jobs in this country we all lose!
Before commenting make sure you actually listened to her speech-if not don't bother.
Obama doesn't give a shit about social security and medicare for the old and gay men are a lot lower on the food chain than the elderly. If you think Obama gives a rat's ass anymore than any other president about gay men you are mistaken!! He is sweating bullets and will say anything now for a vote. Dick Chenny had more respect because his daughter is gay. Wake up MEN.
