View from inside the Republican National Convention as VP candidate Paul Ryan delivered his speech on Aug. 29, 2012.
We’re busy prepping for this morning’s program, re-confirming and making last minute contact with guests for our first hour at 10 a.m.
I just finished highlighting the audio clips of the Ryan and Rice speeches from last night.
I thought both were beautifully crafted speeches and well-delivered. However, we’ll start out by looking at Ryan’s claims and checking their accuracy. We’ll also follow up on the theme of “American Exceptionalism” in Rice’s speech. It’s a huge issue for Republicans and a potential emphasis for the Presidential campaign, moving forward.
Later in the 10 a.m. hour, we’ll look at the Romney/Ryan tax plan and debate its impact on government spending and the deficit.
I’ll also share with you the odd vibe last night in the Ybor City restaurant/nightclub district.
Producer Lauren Osen and I had dinner at the city’s best-known restaurant, but we were shocked by what we saw as we walked the district after eating.
I’ll talk with you at ten.
