After an Opening Night of Tearing down the President Instead of Lifting up Our Country, Will Ryan and Rice Tell The American People Hard Truths?
Republicans are more bent on tearing down the President than lifting up our country. Will Paul Ryan tell voters the hard truth tonight about the Romney-Ryan vision of fewer college scholarships and vouchers instead of the Medicare guarantee seniors earned? Will Condoleezza Rice finally offer specifics about what Romney would do as Commander-in-Chief?
· Republicans would rather tear down the President than lift up our country. If anyone tuned in last night hoping to hear if Mitt Romney has a plan to lift the middle class, improve education or build a better future, they were disappointed. Instead of answers, they got a relentless cavalcade of insults, ideology and anger.
· We hear a lot about Paul Ryan’s straight talk and we heard a lot about hard truths last night. What will Ryan tell the American people tonight?
o Will he look students in the eye and tell them that it’ll be harder to get Pell Grant scholarships and that he would eliminate their $10,000 college tax credit?
o Will he look seniors in the eye and tell them that they could pay up to $6,400 more for their health care because he’d turn Medicare into a voucher program?
o Will he look up at the debt clock and accept responsibility for his votes for unfunded wars and budget-busting tax cuts that exploded our deficit?
o Must Watch: This new OFA video that asks, “Who is Paul Ryan?”
· Condoleezza Rice says we need to hear what Romney would mean for America. Will she finally offer specifics tonight about what Romney would do as Commander-in-Chief?
o Romney has embraced many of those responsible for the failed foreign policies of the past, which weakened America’s reputation and made us less secure at home.
o Romney has so far only offered reckless bluster and vague platitudes. When Republicans talk about foreign policy today, will we hear more of the same?
o The American people know that President Obama has been a strong Commander-in-Chief in a complicated and often dangerous world. Romney said it was tragic when our troops came home from Iraq, calls Russia our top geopolitical foe and has no plan to end the war in Afghanistan or bring our troops home.
