Last night, Governor Romney delivered a powerful speech on restoring America’s greatness – on helping this country to grow and prosper again.
It was the culmination of three days of great speeches. I hope you had a chance to hear not only Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, but also great leaders like Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Condoleezza Rice, and our own Bob McDonnell. And if not, now’s your chance!
Here are some of the best speeches of the convention, which you can view online at your convenience:
Governor Mitt Romney
Congressman Paul Ryan
More videos follow, but a moment’s word, if I may. Many of you receiving this are Republicans, but not all. I’m grateful to the Democrats and independents who correspond with me and who read these emails. I know that an update about the Republican National Convention may not be of particular interest to my liberal friends, but this election is everyone’s concern – and the stakes are high.
For some, President Obama’s candidacy back in 2008 never had any appeal. But for many millions of Americans, Barack Obama’s candidacy was invigorating. To those who supported Obama in 2012, I would echo the question posed by Governor Romney last night, when he said -
Hope and change had a powerful appeal. But tonight I’d ask a simple question: If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn’t you feel that way now that he’s President Obama? You know there’s something wrong with the kind of job he’s done as president when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.
President Obama’s policies have failed. It’s time to set a new course, to elect a President who knows how to get America back to work.
Governor Bob McDonnell
Delegate Barbara Comstock
What an honor for Virginia – Governor Bob McDonnell as Platform Committee Chair and Delegate Barbara Comstock as a permanent co-chair of the Convention!
The Next First Lady
The Man Who Nominated Obama in 2008
Former Congressman Artur Davis
Four years ago, he nominated Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention back in those heady days of “hope and change” – and now, this newly minted Virginian is really hoping for a change!
Governor Chris Christie
Senator Marco Rubio
The Hon. Condoleezza Rice
Governor Bob McDonnell
Did I list Governor McDonnell twice? Well, he deserves it! What a great lineup. What a great convention!
Convention euphoria wears off – but the reason we’re fighting doesn’t. The next President of the United States put it best: “Now is the time to restore the promise of America.”
