From the speeches last night at the RNC, here are the phrases you need to ponder, repeat and use to evangelize:
[Eastwood] I would just like to say something, ladies and gentlemen. Something that I think is very important. It is that, you, we- we own this country.It is not you owning it, and not politicians owning it. Politicians are employees of ours. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican or whether you're libertarian or whatever, you are the best. And we should not ever forget that. And when somebody does not do the job, we got to let them go.
[Rubio] Now, sadly, millions of Americans are insecure about their future. Instead of inspiring us by reminding us of what makes a special, [Obama] divides us against each other.
He tells Americans that they're worse off because others are better off, that richer people got rich by making other people poor. Hope and change has become divide and conquer.
But in the end of this election, it doesn't matter how you feel about President Obama. This election is about your future, not about his.
[Romney] But for too many Americans, these good days are harder to come by. How many days have you woken up feeling that something really special was happening in America?
Many of you felt that way on Election Day four years ago. Hope and Change had a powerful appeal. But tonight I'd ask a simple question: If you felt that excitement when you voted for Barack Obama, shouldn’t you feel that way now that he’s President Obama? You know there’s something wrong with the kind of job he’s done as president when the best feeling you had, was the day you voted for him.
[T]oday, four years from the excitement of that last election, for the first time the majority of Americans now doubt that our children will have a better future. That is not what we were promised.
Every family in America wanted this to be a time when they could get a little ahead, put aside a little more for college, do more for the elderly mom that's now living alone. Or give a little more to their church or their charity. Every small business wants to have this be their best year ever, when they
could hire more, do more for those who had stuck with them through hard times. Open a new store, sponsor that little league team. Every new college graduate thought they'd have a good job by now. A place for their own. They could start paying back some of their loans and build for the future. This is what our nation was supposed to start paying down the national debt, and rolling back massive deficits.
This was the hope and change America voted for. It is not just what we wanted, it is not just what we expected, it is what Americans deserved.
I wish President Obama had succeeded, because I want America to succeed.
But his promises gave way to disappointment and division. This isn't something we have to accept. Now is the moment when we can do something. And with your help, we will do something.
Now is the moment where we can stand up and say, ``I am an American, I make my destiny, we deserve better, my children deserve better, my family deserves better, my country deserves better.''
This president can ask us to be patient. This president can tell us it was someone else's fault. This president can tell us that the next four years will get it right. But this president cannot tell us that you're better off today than when he took office.
America has been patient. Americans have supported this president in good faith, but today the time has come the time to turn the page. Today the time has come for us to put the disappointments of the last four years behind us, to put aside the divisiveness and the recriminations, to forget about what
might have been, and to look ahead to what can be. Now is the time to restore the promise of America.
His assault on coal and gas and oil will send energy and manufacturing jobs to china.
His trillion dollar cuts to our military will eliminate hundreds of thousands of jobs and also put our security at greater risk.
His $716 billion cut to Medicare to finance Obamacare will hurt today's seniors and depress innovation in jobs and medicines. And his trillion dollar deficits, they slow our economy, restrain employment, and cause wages to stall.
To the majority of Americans who now believe the future will not be better than the past, I can guarantee you this -- if Barack Obama is reelected, you will be right.
Under my presidency our friends will see more loyalty and Mr. Putin will see a little less flexibility and
