Martinez is the first female governor of New Mexico and the first female Hispanic governor in the United States, but Chris Matthews still wants you to believe every Hispanic person in this country can’t possibly identify with the white supremacist views of the Republican Party.
Haley is governor of South Carolina, and a daughter of Sikh immigrants from India. However, every liberal talking head out there wants you to believe the Republican Party is anti-immigration and anti-women.
None of these speakers fulfills the stereotype cast by Democrats on the leaders of the GOP.
I also firmly believe the American people are now more familiar with Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and the Republican Party as a whole.
One of the most anticipated speeches was from Ann Romney. She needed to personalize her husband while also appealing to women, a voting bloc Obama is expected to win. If you saw her speech, you know she knocked that one right out of the park.
It was phenomenal, and exactly the type of speech a party hopes to see from someone who could possibly be the next first lady of the United States.
Paul Ryan did a fantastic job as well when he gave his speech accepting the vice presidential nomination. He even gave one of my favorite quotes from the whole convention:
“College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life.”
It shows the Republicans are concerned about the issues facing our generation; something the President hasn’t spent too much time showing concern for. It also encapsulates the fact people are struggling under President Obama’s failed policies when they don’t have to be. This country can be fixed, and the Republicans can turn this economy around.
For those of you who didn’t watch at least part of the GOP Convention this week, you missed out. And for those of you who think I’ve covered all the highlights, you’re sadly mistaken.
The Republicans may be leaving Tampa, but they are taking with them a wave of energy and enthusiasm that Mitt Romney is riding, and he could very well ride it all the way to the Oval Office.
