Alan Clemmons: “I was very impressed by Condoleezza Rice. She had a galvanizing effect on the convention hall tonight. She spoke with intelligence, passion, poise, insight and hope for America’s future. She spoke of the integrity and vision of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and how those leadership qualities can revive American exceptionalism. For Republican delegates in Tampa tonight, [she] is a voice of hope and reason.”
Randal Wallace: “Rand Paul spoke frankly about the need for us to take a hard look at sacred cows like military spending to get our financial house in order.”
“Condoleezza Rice is powerful. Her grasp of foreign affairs is strong. We cannot lead from behind and we need to be strong. That guarantees peace. She also is laying out the need to be strong at home. That free enterprise and self reliance defines you, not your circumstances at birth.
