You forgot two very memorable ones! Pat Buchanan's 1992 keynote address at the Republican Convention and, more recently, you might wanna add Palin's 2008 commencement address.
Why are Mitt's top establishment 2008 rivals Huck and Johnny Mac going to the RNC's convention, but not his more recent 2012 rivals (except Santorum)?
The RNC should forgo the Romney speech and run the 1980 Reagan acceptance. Except change the reference to a $60 billion deficit to read $1.4 trillion. The recipe of Carter stew couldn’t be more prescient.
Great clips, Kemberlee! What a superior collection of true American values and spirit.
I've come to appreciate Coolidge recently and his 100 year old speech is as meaningful today as it was in 1920.
Please LOOK at this info >>
If the above plays out as it did then - It would be "freaky"
I will buy myself a beer !
GREAT STUFF SCOOP
That's why YOU get the BIG BUCKS!
I think the current convention will rival all the others !
"The whole World will hear us!" - (Rudy Giuliani)
I heard Reagan's spirit was seen in Tampa!
FYI - Ronald Reagan's "A Time For Choosing" speech in 1964 was a televised address paid for by Barry Goldwater and done at his request. It was not at the RNC. It is, however, one of the greatest political speeches ever given and my personal favorite.
Wow. This is a goldmine of awesome.
I particularly love the part with Silent Cal condemning class warfare and discussing the rule of law versus the rule of man.
Everything old is new again.
You gotta love that 1964 Ronald Reagan speech. The 1980 one was great, too -- except for the guy who kept honking that air horn!
All NObama's speeches are fit for is the bottom of bird cages and cleaning up after the dog has an "accident."
You're list cannot be complete without Zell Miller's 2004 speech! Now that was a speech that really nailed Kerry!
No words are more reflective of our days now, when Ronald Reagan said this "As your nominee, I pledge to you to restore to the Federal Government the capacity to do the people's work without dominating their lives. I pledge to you a Government that will not only work well but wisely, its ability to act tempered by prudence, and its willingness to do good balanced by the knowledge that government is never more dangerous than when our desire to have it help us blinds us to its great power to harm us.
