Remarks by Governor Schwarzenegger
Excerpts from Remarks to the 2004 Republican National Convention
Governor Schwarzenegger on the Republican Party:
"I'm proud to belong to the party of Abraham Lincoln, the party of Teddy Roosevelt, the party of Ronald Reagan - and the party of George W. Bush. To my fellow immigrants listening tonight, I want you to know how welcome you are in this party. We Republicans admire your ambition. We encourage your dreams. We believe in your future."
Governor Schwarzenegger on the American Dream:
"In this country, it doesn't make any difference where you were born. It doesn't make any difference who your parents were. It doesn't make any difference if, like me, you couldn't even speak English until you were in your twenties. America gave me opportunities, and my immigrant dreams came true. I want other people to get the same chances I did, the same opportunities. And I believe they can. That's why I believe in this country, that's why I believe in this Party - and that's why I believe in this President."
Governor Schwarzenegger on the compassion of the American people:
"We're the America that sends out Peace Corps volunteers to teach village children. We're the America that sends out missionaries and doctors to raise up the poor and the sick. We're the America that gives more than any other country, to fight AIDS in Africa and the developing world. And we're the America that fights not for imperialism but for human rights and democracy."
Governor Schwarzenegger on the compassion and perseverance of the American people:
"Ladies and gentlemen, America is back. Back from the attack on our homeland - back from the attack on our economy - back from the attack on our way of life. We're back because of the perseverance, character and leadership of the 43rd President of the United States - George W. Bush. My fellow Americans, I want you to know that I believe with all my heart that America remains 'the great idea' that inspires the world."
How many times did he say "I'll be back"?
Wow. Even in print, I read it with an Austrian accent.
I thought Arnold wasn't going to speak until after 7 pm Pacific time.
Did he speak already, or is this a pre-release?
Its a pre-release
I hope he says "America is back" just right. It would make a great snip for a campaign ad.
You votes: give dem to me.
Sorry. Dang laptop touch pad.
Who is your Daddy, and what does he do?
LOL winner! :)
Listen up any of you girlie men who might be for Kerry: America is back and it's because of George W. Bush!
Heard things on Fox about the opening acts are too weak for the right Reps. The closing acts are will close this thing.
Cheney and Bush.
Man I can't wait for the Cheney / Edwards debate., thats going to make this convention look like Kindergarden rumpus wompus.
Damm, I hate my phones. Sorry I lost my thought
Making book is a tough gig. ;^)
Do you think he'll use the Girley Man thing tonight?
He might, what do you think?
1950's liberal pieties with a few free-market platitudes.
