Paul Ryan – ‘We will lead’ (text of speech)
Wisconsin Congressman and vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan fired a series of rhetorical salvos at Barack Obama Wednesday night, declaring war on a Democratic presidency Ryan asserts has failed by every measure.
With text of his speech here.
I accept the duty to help lead our nation out of a jobs crisis and back to prosperity – and I know we can do this.
I accept the calling of my generation to give our children the America that was given to us, with opportunity for the young and security for the old – and I know that we are ready.
