David Rouzer addresses Republican National Convention -- his remarks.
The following are the remarks Republican congressional candidate David Rouzer was expected to make at the Republican National Convention Tuesday afternoon in Tampa, Fla.
These remarks were released before the speech, so Rouzer’s actual words may have been different. He gave his short speech just after 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
Rouzer is challenging U.S. Rep. Mike McIntyre, D-Lumberton, in the 7th Congressional District, which includes all or parts of 12 Southeastern North Carolina counties.
Hello North Carolina, hello America.
You can feel it: Our country is at a crossroads. This election will determine whether we continue on the path of more spending, more debt and economic disaster – or whether we choose real solutions and return to the basic principles of free enterprise and limited government.
At this critical hour in our nation’s history, we can’t afford to re-elect Barack Obama – a man who believes that America is the problem.
We can’t afford to re-elect a man who doesn’t understand that it was the hard work and achievement of the American people that made this country great. We can’t afford to re-elect someone who believes that our dismal economy is doing just fine!
And in North Carolina’s 7th Congressional district, we can’t afford to re-elect Mike McIntyre – a man who voted four times to make Nancy Pelosi the Speaker, and then voted with her more than 90 percent of the time – 90 percent of the time – while she controlled the House.
We can’t afford to re-elect a man like Mike McIntyre who said about Obama’s failed stimulus, “in our part of the country – it has worked.”
Ladies and gentlemen, let’s send Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and their lieutenant Mike McIntyre home and restore America to greatness! Elect Romney-Ryan and Rouzer on November 6!
May God bless you and may God bless America.
