Two of the most hyped speeches from Tuesday night at the Republican National Convention in case you missed the highlights.

First, Ann Romney, wife of GOP candidate Mitt Romney:

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie:

There were a number of other speeches on Tuesday, all of which are available at the C-SPAN convention library. The same coverage will be provided for the DNC convention coming up the first week of September.

Transcripts: Ann Romney, Chris Christie


    • Are you actually listening to what politicians have to say and paying attention to their actions or are you just another mindless crowd follower?

      • They sound like a broken record. They only say what the people want to hear and any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental.

  1. Cranbrook Kingswood is the most expensive boarding school in Michigan, and among the most expensive in the Midwest. You sure she is one of us?

      • I hardly feel like a guy who was 47 out of 50 a positive when it comes to job creation. Now if we are talking body bags here and war the GOP is the way to go. Guess one man’s plus is another man’s minus.

        • In case you haven’t noticed yet, statistics are easily bent and shaped to support any opinion you want. If you look at the starting line vs the finish line for Romney in MA you get a different picture than the one you’ve been led to paint.

          • Hey he started the race with the most baggage and finished first in the GOP anyway. But look at what he had to spend to get there. His track record sucks, granted better than a black politician from Chicago but with a 16 trillion dollar debt hanging over the country, nobody said the voters were smart. They went for Nixon big time.

            • Mitt has almost no baggage. Do you know how much Obama had to spend to get elected? Kennedy? Anyone other President? It takes money to get the message out. Money is representative of success and support. However, I will say that in the age of technology we live in you might see the money element change a bit in the future. This is the world we live in. You have a game board and the game pieces that came with it. You either learn to play or you go home. If you play well enough you might be in a position to change the game.

            • The guy has more baggage then a bellhop at the Waldorf. Start with his record as Governor and work your way back to Seamus.

    • Important Delegate Press Conference To Be Held Thursday!

      Daily Paul Liberty Forum

      “DELEGATES Important: Ron Paul delegates will be holding a press conference Thursday in “unity.”

      Please contact Justin Carro, Ron Paul Alternate Delegate from Alaska at 907.209.7783. Please share!!

    • Duly elected Maine delegates erupt after getting barred from Republican convention( because they were duly elected to vote for Ron Paul)!

      The Republican Establishment started the inevitable demise of their own party (what a way to commit political suicide — by disenfranchising their own)!

      Make sure you thank them all, in assuring another 4 years of the Obaminator (the ultimate Destructor of the USA) by piling more Lies and Frauds on top of the ones they’ve already perpetrated!

      • Look, there are certainly many of us out there who support the libertarian point of view. Ron Paul has contributed a hell of a lot to the Republican conversation. It’s a start and you can be sure there will be more in 2016. I bow to Ron Paul for standing strong for so many years and he will no doubt be remembered as a hero when this chapter of the history books is written. It’s disruptive behavior that got his supporters removed. Libertarians who act skillfully, methodically and persevere will see much of their agenda bloom. All in good time. No place at the RNC for such anger and hatred.

      Ann Romney’s speech:

      “Simple, direct, touching—everything Mitt isn’t.”

      Good one!

      Question: Which # wife is Ann to Mormon Mitt’s…?

  2. Ron Paul — Run as an Independent!

    Sign petition below:

    A REAL Human Being (Ron Paul) needs to be present at the “Debates” — we just can’t allow a Punch-and-Judy Show (the Rmoney puppet parleying with the BO puppet) — someone with REAL SUBSTANCE needs to expose these two clowns!

    Ron Paul is the only one capable of this!

    • I agree, best speeches money can buy. A real pied piper they are, those speech writers but they ain’t the person speaking the words, that’s for sure.

      • I understand your skepticism but I believe this cycle is a different animal. What’s most important and if nothing else the candidate best suited to lead growth in this country is who we need. If Romney performs for America as well as he has all of his life everyone will be in a lot better shape 4 years from now. If he doesn’t there will be hell to pay and everyone knows it.

        • You might say that for Bill Gates or Steve Jobs but not Mitt Romney. There is a difference between a true leader and a leech.

            • The accusation of racism on the part of Republicans has surged Got to watch NBC not Fox to get the flip side.

            • Oh I’m sure they got a lot more but you asked for one. Hey I’m no Obama fan, I’m with Johnson right now if RP is out. Just amazed at how Romney ran away with this and on paper there were a lot better choices. Almost like he was hand picked by the democrats. Guess maybe they wanted an even match against Obama. God look at what Obama replaced .

  3. Don’t you guys have a job or any thing to do? Ron Paul lost already! Even Grinrich and Rick did better then he did. It would have never been Jon Paul. Let it go already!

    • which two are you talking about. I’m just trying to console someone who seems to be more than disappointed. I’ve moved on for this round. Romney/Ryan HAVE to win or America is in BIG BIG trouble.

    • No job, why you got a plan to get America working? Bring it on. I know you can beat out RP’s plan to get a million people back to work on day one.

    • One of us don’t know how to count:

      Mitt Romney 2,061 90.1%
      Ron Paul 190 8.3%
      Rick Santorum 9 0.39%
      Michele Bachmann 1 0.04%
      Jon Huntsman 1 0.04%
      Buddy Roemer 1 0.04%
      Abstain 23 1%


    “The GOP is smarter than we”!

    While, We The People, have hopes of saving our Nation — THEY, the GOP Elite, has none.

    We are idealistic — believers that Truth, Liberty and Justice will eventually prevail, thus saving US from imminent economic collapse and the loss of all freedoms!

    The GOP Establishment has no such illusions — THEY want to assure that ONLY THEY and THEIR OWN have first dibs on the choices pieces of meat, when the carving of the American People starts. THEY do not want rejuvenation of the Republican Party, nor is stagnation enough — PURGING is needed, so THEY are first in line to pick our bones clean when the economic collapse starts. (Same goes for the Dems in power).

    We, the Real American People (the producers), are the HOST — and THEY, the Non-Producers, are the Parasites!

    While the Host was strong and healthy in the past — the parasites fed well with little notice on OUR loss.

    But, NOW the Parasites have become GREATER than the HOST — meaning in order to survive, THEY have to suck MORE blood out of US than we can produce for ourselves, let alone THEM.

    Realizing this, THEY are preparing the road ONLY for THEMSELVES and THEIR OWN to strip our carcass clean (after they’ve sucked US dry).

    Now, back to working two jobs Real Americans, so you can produce some more to feed THEM longer…until THEY are finally ready to send you to the glue factory… (“Animal Farm” by George Orwell).
