Secretary Condoleeza Rice’s speech was a needed dousing of cold water, needed to awake us from a stupor of liberal foreign policies.
Condoleeza was amazing, reminding us that as weary as we may be to lead, the options of chaos or leadership by others with evil intents is much, much worse.
Her recall back to 9-11 and how that singular day changed America forever. Our path is now different, but not necessarily worse. Different is not the same as bad. She was a breathe of fresh air, reminding us to honor those who VOLUNTEER to risk everything to protect all of us.
I had found the speeches boring and shallow tonight (except for the Governor of Puerto Rico who slashed government by 20% and deficits by 90% – the true role model). Condoleeza brought us back to topics of historic importance. It was a needed change to what was a drab and empty night.
She is a gem to this nation, and has truly carved out a special place in history. We will not lead from behind (nor bow to any and all) after November.
