Tonight, Mitt Romney is giving his acceptance speech. Here is a little of what I would like to hear:
If you want a celebrity President, pick the other guy. If you want the White House to host really cool parties featuring really cool bands, pick the other guy. If you are woman who wants to be dependent on the government for all your life, pick the other guy. If you want someone who the celebrities love, pick the other guy. If you are only concerned about what government can give you, the other guy is your man. If you think being cool is really the coolest thing, pick the other guy. He will hand out benefits until he can’t borrow one more cent. If you think a weak America is good for the world, vote for the other guy. Putin, Iran, North Korea, and Hugo Chavez want you to vote for Obama.
If you are interested in results, not broken promises, vote for me. If you have children or grandchildren and want them to have a decent chance to succeed, vote for me. If you think we should have a very strong military, vote for me. If you think we are oppressed by too many rules and regulations, vote for me. If you work hard, and play by the rules but can’t get ahead, vote for me. If you went in debt for college but can’t get a decent job, vote for me. If you want things fixed, not kicked down the road, vote for me.
It won’t be easy. America needs strong medicine. It won’t taste good. I will tell you the truth, I will work to make things better. I will work to make us safe. I will not lead from behind. I will not apologize for being successful. I will not apologize for America’s strength. I will work to make America stronger. The world needs a strong America.
There are strong headwinds. Another recession is baked into the cake already. The world is full of people who wish us harm, who do not want a strong America. If we don’t work to make things better right now, it will be too late. Paul Ryan and I aren’t smooth talkers, we are doers. We can fix this economy.
