Ryan Tells Clermont County “The World Needs American Leadership”

Just two days after the first attacks on the U.S. embassies and the horrific deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans, Paul Ryan spoke to Clermont County residents at a rally held at the fairgrounds.

“In the face of such a tragedy, we need to be reminded that the world needs American leadership…This administration’s policies project weakness abroad – undercutting allies like Israel, outreach to enemies like Iran, national security leaks, and devastating defense cuts.  A weak America breeds insecurity and chaos around the world.  The best guarantee of peace is American strength; and ‘Peace through Strength’ will be the Romney/Ryan foreign policy of this country.”

Photos from the Paul Ryan Rally at the Clermont County Fairgrounds

A crowd of about 3500 gathered at the Clermont County Fairgrounds for an opportunity to hear Vice Presidential hopeful Paul Ryan share Mitt Romney’s and his vision for America and their plans to get the country back on track.

Eager attendees waited for the gates to open so they could enter the event area that was set up specifically for this rally – beyond the grandstand and parking lot, in the area past the horse barns (for those of you who are familiar with the fairgrounds).

Ryan Recognizes the Source of Our Rights

Just four days after the announcement that he would be Romney’s running mate, Paul Ryan spoke to an enthusiastic crowd of about 6,000 on the campus of his alma mater, Miami University in Oxford.

Following remarks from a former professor and Governor John Kasich,  then an introduction by Senator Rob Portman, Congressman Ryan spoke to the crowd for about fifteen minutes.  He briefly reminisced about his days at Miami, then focused on the clear contrasts between the direction President Obama wants to take this country and the vision that Governor Romney and he have for America.  It was a message that brings genuine hope to conservatives.

Paul Ryan understands that our rights come from God – not from government.  He said so.  He gets it.  That is essential to understanding the proper role and limits of government.  He believes in fiscal responsibility – you don’t spend money you don’t have.  And, he recognizes that jobs come from successful small businesses, unburdened by regulations and taxes.  His message resonated with the principles of Constitutional limited government, fiscal responsibility, and free markets.   His was a message of hope – because his vision has a foundation in principles. This is a stark contrast to Obama’s “hope” that is merely a wish for a utopia that has no foundation other than empty political rhetoric.
