tv Key Capitol Hill Hearings CSPAN April 2, 2016 2:00am-4:01am EDT
cells exist, for example the san bernardino shooting. the main shooter was an american citizen. is wife had a his wife had a green card. a very significant number of those carrying out these homicidal conspiracies are british and american and french and belgian. we agree this appalling degree of criminal negligence, not noticing when somebody is deported from turkey to the netherlands and is known as a terrorist, not picking that p. but if you can do something about homegrown jihadists, you have to engage with the muslim community, not demonize their own mafments you actually have to welcome the
work of the foundation. >> well, i do. >> you have to start from the assumption, not the pessimistic assumption that all immigrants are necessarily going to constitute a fifth column, but the possibility that they can live active decent lives. i don't disagree about the horror of genital mutilation -- those should be prosecuted. i agree with you. we have a problem in our countries. what i'm urging, we don't have a complete open door so we have a problem even worse. that's the point. >> i know. >> but that's already gone. that's already gone. the eu turkey agreement is going o return vast numbers. so let them join the eu.
>> it's hardly a victory. >> the point is, these are second and third generation belgians and frenchmen and rmans and britains and canadians and they're going off paris, isis blowing off that ought to occasion a certain modesty, that our skills at assimilation are not as awesome as they were in the 19th century. the answer, when second and hird generation immigrants are blowing up the airports, that that is suddenly the reason to accelerate immigration from the same source, is very bizarre. in what sense are these people belgian?
>> in what sense is she british? she's fully british, right? and she happens to be a british muslim. how more british can you get than doing bbc world service? >> i got no problem with that. that is my point. holding a passport does not make you canadian. it does not make you -- > i agree. >> i think what we both want to see is some way -- this is the difference between us. what we want to see, because as louise said, we are a globally interconnected world on a shrinking planet. those of us are essentially possibly naively optimistic
humanists that think it is not impossible to be an orthodox muslim and a good canadian or a good brit or a good democrat at the same time. good britt. a good democrat at the same time. for that, you need to be involved and engaged to a degree which hasn't happened. exercises in civic education, which make it clear you can go to a mosque n friday for friday prayers in still be a decent, democratically participating citizen. if you go to mosque in the imam appens to preach the destruction of the society you are living in, bloody well turn him in. turn him in. >> that doesn't happen, unfortunately. if you look at the statistics of radicalized mosques, you will understand all over this city edmonton, montreal and calgary,
there are any number of radicalized mosques where people just sit on their hands. i go back to my point, simon. you have to have something to assimilate with. most of the history you know our people in british schools, they haven't a clue about. they don't have a clue about. they don't teach history and north american schools. my kids are in a school where it is called social studies. and they do a little bit of it. and it's always the same thing. it is martin luther king comes around like the number 23 bus. >> i have a movement to abolish the term. i'll sign you up. >> i want to move on to numbers. that is a big part of this debate. we are seeing countries, not just in the middle east. turkey, 2.7 million. lebanon, one million.
if you look at legally settled yrian refugees, almost infinitesimal numbers compared to other countries. what do you oh european neighbors? what do we owe them? in terms of trying to take the pressure that you and mark have diagnosed that's so acute with their society? what do we owe them now? >> we have an open door to people who are european union itizens. generally, a weak immigration policy, net migration is a third f a million. we've got our population increasing by one third of a million every year, 10 times the post world average and it is because of that the david cameron has said, he will only accept 20,000 syrian efugees.
i am certain that if the united kingdom added a point system, we would find room for more genuine refugees. when we did that, we would look at the plight of the christians who are being massacred in ibya, iraq, syria. from every definition, you shake your head at me. from every definition, the united nations have stood for since 1951, those questions i would have thought should be guaranteed freedom and security nd refugee status. i think in britain, and actually now in germany and sweden, we are becoming very hardhearted because of free movement of eople.
because of shanghem. we are becoming rather hardhearted to things that 20 years ago we would have been happy to accept. >> mark, the united states, a population over 300 million, only 1200 syrian refugees have been legally and officially admitted. is that the u.s. shouldering its burden? >> no, but they do not look at it as a humanitarian way, they look at it as part of the security picture. and it's a little surreal to be holding this debate in the week following brussels which is what the question would mean if we discussed it in the united louise and simon want to attach the general migration question from the terrorism question. the americans in particular do not see it that way. we all know, i was glad to hear the canadian customs turned over
simon earlier today. there is somebody they don't ant to let in the country. the fascinating thing is, when you look at what mr. mccallum is going to say, we are not going to have the chaps committing the gang rapes. we are screening for them. we are screening for them. no western government, if you have ever had the pleasure of undergoing second-degree interrogation, as this suspicious character did, you know no western government has a clue about who it lets in. the person who committed san bernardino, she had a green card. she basically used a jihadist dating site to put together a terrorist cell. it was an arranged marriage for the purpose of committing terrorism. she aced something.
it is money no object, down south. there is just one agency. they have like 97 agencies south of the border, looking at this woman. she aced five separate tests and still got into the country. america takes the view it has no idea who these people are an better be safe than sorry. >> what does north america, canada or the u.s. owe in terms of this crisis? >> we have to bring this date back into less apocalyptic scale. first of all -- and maybe the wording of the motion i said in the beginning was a poetic way spirit of the e refugee convention. we have drifted into the movement of people, which is for the most part unregulated by international law or treaty. what we are talking about now is
a so-called crisis europe is facing. it is well defined by the efugee convention. we have not made a dent talking about the millions of stateless people without a passport. if you have a passport, you are a citizen, there is no other way. [applause] we haven't made a dent dealing with statelessness. we haven't made a dent dealing with what are called internally displaced persons, of which there are millions. these people are stuck in their own country. against a predatory government. we have no framework to deal with them. what we are talking about our people running away from oppression and frankly, we have to assume when you consider immense risk, the majority of them are bona fide refugee applicants. and then we have to process it.
so we're talking about a very small number. when we say millions, it is millions knocking on the door of one billion people, europe, north america, all the capacity ogether. the key is international cooperation. there is no reason greece, which was having a lot of financial problems, should have been stuck with bearing the largest burden. the european partners and the western countries generally should have that up to the plate. canada should still do so beyond the generous signal that we have already sent. we have the luxury of doing a full prescreening. they don't row into canada. they sit in refugee camps where we have months to do preselection processes with the luxury of these processes in place, we should be doing tons more. everybody has to work in that direction.
stop the exaggeration. ot the nonexistence of a security risk, i am not saying there is zero, but to blow it up to such an extent we start talking about erecting walls with barbed wire. i think this will be actually a stain and shame. [applause] >> we are coming to the and of our cross examination. simon, i want to give you the last word. >> i want to echo what louise said. just a quick piece of information that came out today. a report from amnesty international, which cast a long shadow over the turkey eu agreement. it says turkey has been forcibly deporting refugees, syrian refugees back to the war zones
from which they have come. which is horrific. if true, the turks have denied it, but there seems to be a substantial amount of evidence. it takes us back to the place where perhaps we should have pent more time on. there is a universe of misery nd suffering, one in every three displaced persons in these hellish camps in syria, jordan, and lebanon our children. -- are children. we have to think about their plight, rather than obsess so much on jihadis and rapists in german cities. >> very good. k. time for closing statements. we will proceed in the opposite order of our opening statements. nigel, your three minutes will go up. > thank you for a very
civilized debate. we started off with 77% against our side, which compared to the odds i am against in the parliament strikes me as a good start. [laughter] i have tried tonight to make the point that i do think it is the holden on people to the west to open their hearts to genuine efugees. people in fear of imprisonment and death because of their race, eligion, political police. -- political beliefs, indeed, their sexual orientation. i have tried to make that point. i have no doubt america and canada could do more than they are doing. i have no doubt about that, when it comes to refugees. it is europe that has faced the front line could we have thrown out the window the classical definition of what a refugee is and we broadened it to anybody
coming from a war-torn area or a oor country. what mrs. merkel did clearly was irresponsible, stupid, and a price germany will have to pay for years to come. just opening up your doors and not been able in a modern world, where we do have a genuine terrorist threat, and yes, it is about 2% of the muslim communities coming into urope. but if only eight people can ause all that misery in paris, and what we saw in brussels, we have to be careful. we have to have security checks. we have to process people offshore and make sure they are genuine refugees. i have tried this evening to challenge the other side see whether they could agree with me the christians who are being
crucified and massacred in the middle east should qualify for refugee status. i have not had one positive response from this other side. this is the point. this motion, you cannot support this motion. it is idealized nonsense. it doesn't make sense. hat we need to have is a sensible, common sense refugee policy to help those in peril. just to open up our doors, the weight angela merkel did, is bad news for germany and the west. we need to stand up and stop such nonsense. oppose the motion, please. thank you. [applause] >> i don't disagree at all with your point about the hristians.
as far as the islamic state is concerned, shia are not muslim at all. i want to and with the words of a christian, written in 624. you all know some of them at least. he dean of st. paul, john dan. no man is an island. every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. f a clod be washed away by the sea, europe is the loss. as well as if a manner of thy friends. any man's death diminishes me. because i'm involved in mankind and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls.
thee.lses for [applause] >> we are going to go to mark. >> those of us on the stage and many of the more distinguished persons in the auditorium tonight, lead privileges -- privileged lives. we jet off to the european parliament, to bbc television studios. to the transnational bureaucracy in geneva. it is easy, from 30,000 feet, to think what is going on below us is swell. we will never have to live in russels. we will never have to live in toulouse. we get to go to the nice laces.
that should occasion in us a certain modesty when we come up with grand utopian schemes that testify to what simon calls our naively optimistic humanism. down there, they have to live with the consequences of our attitudes. of our naãvely optimistic humanism. we are striking attitudes. simon talked about his kurdish news agent who is a decent chap when he hands him the jewish chronicle in the morning. we all know people like hat. at the same time, the political class is designing a solution to the great migrations of the world that will only end in tragedy. i ask you not to vote for
it. the more failed states that stay failed, the more failed states there will be. ultimately, it is better for syrians to live in syria. for afghans to live in afghanistan. or iraqis to live in iraq. it is better for there to be more beacons of liberty around the world. i confess, i have never liked the lazarus poem that is stapled to the bottom of the statue of liberty. the americans nailed a third rate poem to it and turned it into a celebration of mass migration to be liberty and a mass migration have nothing to o with each other. in fact, the latter can imperil he former.
that is where simon's optimistic humanism may take us. we cannot fix failed states by inviting millions of their people to move in with us. all that inch or's is more failed states and eventually, one by one, the nations of the west will join them. please vote against this motion. [applause] >> you will have the last ord. >> let's say at the outset, i don't know of any evidence that suggests christians from syria have been excluded from refugee rotection. i don't know where this is coming from. think, at the bottom of the debate today, it is showing what
is being portrayed today as unique is another manifestation of the old myths and stereotypes and prejudices that have met nearly every wave of immigration. it is odious when it targets refugees, not just any other ype of migrants. in a book, a writer made the point that many of what we hear bout muslims penetrating our muslim societies, many of the things we attribute to them were attributed to catholics, for instance. who were said to be backwards, had a loyalty to rome more than their home country. lived in poor, crime-ridden neighborhoods.
were very backwards. anti-democratic, authoritarian by disposition. doesn't that sounds like the yellow peril we were all going to be transformed into a different society? we would all be of mixed color if we let in these millions of people coming from all over the world? this plays into the same stereotypes and myths we have heard at every point in history. the reality is, despite a knee-jerk, sometimes hostile reception to newcomers, the history in this country has been a history of amends success integrating people coming from all kinds of cultures and religions. when i talk about integration, it is a two-way street. it has changed us it it will change us in the future. we have to have a very impoverished confidence in our democracy to think it is so fragile, it cannot sustain the
profound differences that will challenge us to our devotion to free speech and pluralism. thank you. [applause] >> ladies in gentlemen, it was a hard-fought debate. it reminds me of something our ounder has said. it is one thing to give a speech and have the stage as yours. it is very different, what we have seen tonight. our big minds, big thinkers, challenging each other. putting their ideas out there. contesting this important issue. please join me in a show of appreciation for phenomenal debate. >> ok. bravo. very well done. very well done. thank you.
[applause] let's take a look at where public opinion was at the beginning of this evening. all of you in the audience are going to have the opportunity on our way out to vote again. let's see where the audience was at the beginning. 77% of you agreeing with the motion. 23% opposed. then we asked you, how many would be open to changing your ind? 79% yes. it will be fascinating to see how you decide, based on what you heard today. the arguments pro and con where you will come down on this debate. i just want to end by thanking the foundation for staging this debate.
they are a great part of canada. something available from coast to coast and across the continental u.s.. we're going to do this all again next awe thank you. but in the next time keep watching, and learning. thank you for joining us at the debate.

>> on the next "washington journal," kelly jane torrance d george zornick discuss the 2016 presidential race. also james >> a ren will talk about the media cycle. so kate david -- and also we cycle. ut the media also kate davidson. >> this weekend the c-span's cities tour hosted by our cable partners takes you to long beach, california to explore the
history of this port city located south of los angeles. n book tv, learn about the contributions by women during world war ii. >> when the u.s. army was looking to have a place to produce aircraft, they picked long beach. they picked long beach because we have a wonderful airport that was founded in 1943. the army loved because they could use military planes there that they couldn't use other places. douglas went into full production mode and was turning out planes 24/7. and then they needed a lot of people to work here. the women for the first time were brought out of the house and brought into the workforce. and at its peak douglas was
employing 45,000 people a day in the long beach area. and about 48% of those people were women. >> and on "american history tv," we visit the port of long beach and discover the importance of the second container port. > the port of long beach was harbor don't department. this started on a wooden wharf and was a william per terminal that supplied lumber for the city of long beach and the region in. 1940, we had the u.s. navy, the naval station and then the long beach naval shipyard. they were here until the early 1990's. through the base closure process, unfortunately, the naval complex shutdown. >> what we were able to do is
talk an old federal facility and actually turn to at that time and it still is one of our most modern container terminals. >> where we are today is we're sitting on the most modern sustainable marine terminal in the world. >> watch the c-span's city tours on book tv and sunday afternoon on american history tv on c-span three. the spsks pan city tours working with affiliates and working with citizens across the country. >> during campaign 2016, c-span takes you on the "road to the white house." as we follow the candidated on -span, c-span, radio and c-span.org. >> the president candidates are in wisconsin ahead of the state's primary on tuesday.
the republican party in milwaukee hosted a dinner on friday that included presidential candidate ted cruz. he was introduced by wisconsin governor scott walker who publicly endorsed the senator earlier this week. [applause] >> that's where i wanted it there. thank you. what a great crowd. welcome to serve all the best fish fry in the entire country. [applause] it's good to be close to home. good to see you, sierra. i feel safe already with david clark in the front row. that's pretty good. it's great to be here. i'm just going spend a couple of minutes telling you a few things here but i've got a question for you to begin with. how many of you think wisconsin is better off than it was five years ago?
[applause] that's because of all of you. that's because of all of you here tonight. i mean, think about it. with all these national folks, let's take minute or two to have a commercial about the great state of wisconsin because of common sense principles conservative leadership, you helped us obtain not just voting for the state senate. 2016.ou helped me in to look what we got. a better economy, a better budget, better schools, a better wisconsin. sound pretty good? [applause] i mean, think about it, each of these categories. you know the report that came out a couple of weeks ago which
was january, showed that in the state of wisconsin we had one of the lowest unemployment rates that we've had in about a decade and a half. the percentage of people working in this state is now the sixth highest in the entire country. [applause] and it was simple. we got governed out of the way. we lowered income and property taxes. we froze tuition for the first time ever. four years in a row. we got government regulation or red tape out of the way. we pulled back on frivolous and out of control lawsuits and we put you the people in charge of your state's economy. and you know what happened? >> you responded. more people are working at the state of wisconsin than at just about any point in our state's history. common sense conservative principles, work.
and we've had a balanced budget. in fact, we had balance surplus. a rainy-day fund. it's 165 bigger than when we took office. remember those protestor as few years ago. remember how they said that public education was going to be in big trouble. in our public schools, a.c.t. scores are the second best in the country and graduation rates are the third best in the country. common sense conservative principles work. and all of you in that state understand that. and talk to your neighbors and co-workers and friends and most importantly all of you who prayed for them. when we went through the protest ou know what the battle is all
about. not for republican community. we thought more about the next generation than just about the next election and the people of wisconsin have responded time and time again to that positive conservative message. thank you for making that possible. [applause] and so tonight i'm going ask for you help one more time not just for this state but for your country. there are a lot of people who helped us out. some of you may be thinking this candidate or that candidate. but i can tell you who i'm casting my vote for on tuesday and hope you'll join with me not just for what's going to happen on tuesday. but what's going to happen and the impact it will have on this nomination, on this party and most importantly the country as a hole. i'm proud to tell you that i'm endorsing ted cruz to be the
next president of the united tates. [applause] and let me give you three quick reasons why. we don't shout. we just talk in this state. you see, the protestors five years ago they tried to shut us out. i'm going to give you three simple reasons why i'm proud to support ted on tuesday to be our nominee and to be ultimately our president come this fall. first off, ted cruz is a constitutional conservative. you know why that matters? we have shown in this state why that matters because you see, he understands that the flounders of this country -- founders of this country some 240 years ago, incredibly unbelievably brave
founders, they understood that power should float to the states and more importantly to the people -- when that happens the people in states like wisconsin can take care of their government not just here. we need someone committed to the constitution and that is ted cruz. [applause] secondly, what i love is something we can really relate to in wisconsin. and that is ted cruz is someone who's not afraid to take on the status quo, right? we showed america what it means to take power out of the hands of the special interest and put it firmly into the hands of the taxpayers. it's worked. year after year after year it has worked. it's about time to have that common sense leadership in our nation's capital. ted cruz didn't just talk about when he ran for the senat.
he brought that kind of approach and opinion to washington and you know what, it took things up. it took up the democrat, it shook up the status co. and it shook up republicans in washington. he doesn't care because his constituency is you the american hard working people and that's exactly what i'm going as your next president. and to me there's one more reason, third reason. so you've got to philosophical reasons. notice my reasons are all about who i'm four not about who i'm against. we like to be for something not against something. the third haven't a practical reason. you see, ted cruz without a doubt is the candidate who can both win the nomination of this party.
bring the party together at the confession and defeat hillary clinton this fall. [applause] between now and tuesday let's remember here in wisconsin and let's remind others across the country that as republicans, our opponents aren't the people on the primary ballot, our opponent is hillary clinton someone who is so far out of touch with reality. someone that even the democrats understand. that's part of the reason why bernie sanders has so much support. even democrats understand we cannot trust hillary clinton on enghazi on the server on her e-mail on leading this country. [applause] and so it is my honor to tell
you who i'm for. and i just came from oshkosh. i was there talking with folks t the winnebago, the county. i had a chance to sit next to ted cruz's dad who's a minister. my dad is a preacher. both of us are preacher's kids. we know what it's like to be the preacher's kids. hopefully one of the kids would be president that would be the daughters not the sons but thinking next to be close to his dad brought a smile to my face. some of the things my dad does. and i thought darren and i thought about growing up in that small town and thinking about growing up during the 1980's just like ted did. i was a preacher in the 80's but
growing up in time that the leader of the country someone we looked up to. for future generation, someone who had a vision of how to bring this country together not by running away from his principles but instead by embracing those this. les and applying that was ronald reagan. ted and i both came of age at that time. [applause] not in office. we both came of age because we were in high school and school at that time. and ted and i and probably a lot of you here. remember that ronald reagan was our president. >> he was our leader. he was the leader of the free world. and we believed in him because he had a plans to muir this country forward. who was opt mystic american
people. i believe especial that's what we have here tonight. the gentleman is going to win the wisconsin primary on tuesday. he's going to unite this party when he receive the nomination. and you will put us on the right track. after he's elected the president of the united states. ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together for ted cruz! ♪ [applause]
[cheers and applause] cruz: god bless the great state of wisconsin. i've got to say, your governor s a rock star. let me tell you, when governor scott walker stood up and took on the union bosses and when we saw vicious personal attacks, when we saw vicious threats and millions of men and women across the state of wisconsin stood with your governor and said we've got your back i want to tell you, it inspired millions of americans across this country. it inspired me. and it demonstrated that when we the people stand together, we
can beat the special interests that are bankrupting our kids and grandkids. [applause] and the courage and principle that scott walker and the people of wisconsin demonstrated in that fight over and over and over and over again is exactly the courage and principle we need in washington, d.c. to turn this country around. [applause] and i am so humbled, so honored to be standing here with governor walker. scott, thank you for your friendship. thank you for your tremendous leadership. [applause] you know, you can learn a lot about a word by looking to its history, looking to its roots. if you look at the root of the
word politics, it has two parts. poly meaning many. and ticks means blood-suck parasites. [laughter] and that is a fairly accurate escription of washington, d.c. but you know, we're here tonight for something a lot more important than politics. we're here tonight because our country is in crisis. we're here tonight because we're bankrupting our kids and grandkids because our constitutional rights are under assault each and eever day and because america has receded from phillip the world and it's made the world a much more dangerous place. and yet i'm here with a word of hope and encouragement. all across the state of wisconsin, all across this
country, people are waking up. and help is on the way. [applause] this next election is going focus on three critical issues, obs, freedom and security. let's start with jobs. i want to take a minute and talk to all the single moms who are working two or three part-time jobs. who have had your hours forcibly duced to 28, 29 hours a week because obamacare kicks in at 30 hours a week. i want to talk to all the truck drivers. all the plumbers and all the electricians all the working men and women with callouses on your hands.
seeing your wage stagnate year after year after year. the cost of living keep goings up and somehow your paycheck doesn't seem to keep pace. >> i want to talk to all the young people. coming out of school with student loans up your eye banses. scared. am i going to get a job? what does the future hold for me? and you know, the mainstream media, they try to tell us this is the new normal. this is the new normal. this is as good as it gets. well, let me tell you that is an absolute lie. [applause] you know, it's easy to talk about making america great again . you could even print that on a baseball cap. but the real question is, do you understand the principles and
values that made america great in the first place. the heart of our economy is not washington, d.c.. the heart of our economy is millions of small bids all across the united states of america. you want to unjobs, what you have to do is take the boot of the federal government nor off the back of the next of small business. if i'm elected president, we will repeal every word of obama care. [applause] we'll pass common sense healthcare reform that makes healthcare affordable and keeps
government from getting in between us and our doctors. [applause] and we will pass a simple flat tax. [applause] so every american can fill out our taxes on a postcard. and when we do that, we should abolish the i.r.s. [applause] we're going to reign in the e.p.a. and the federal regulators who have descended on low gusts on small businesses killing jobs all across this country. and we're going to stop amnesty nd secure the boreds and end
benefits for those here illegally. [applause] and let me tell you what's going to happen when we do all that. we're going see millions and millions of low paying jobs. we're going to see manufacturing jobs coming back to the state of wisconsin. we're going to see wages rising for americans all across this country. we're going to see young people with two, three, four, five job offers. [applause] we'll see morning in america again. the second, critical issue this election's about. t's freedom. you know the past thing a few eeks ago of justice scalia
under controls the stakes of this election. we are one liberal justice away from a radical five-justice majority the lakes of which this country has never seen. >> we are just one justice away rom the seem court that will release them. and we are one vote away that would erase the second amendment from the bill of rights. we're one justice away from the supreme court making us a subject to the world core and international law and giving away u.s. sovereignty. now, two debates ago, phil hewitt asked a question about religious deliberatity and the supreme court. > she said ted -- i've known a
lot more politicians than you have. that he is correct. donald trump has been supporting liberal democratic polingtigses for 40 years. with that. perience but donald continued. he said, ted, when it comes to the supreme court. when i comes to religious liberty. you have to learn how to compromise. you have to cut deals with the democrats and go along to get along. let me be clear to the men and women of wisconsin. will not give away your religious liberty. keep the second
amendment, the right to keep and bear arms. the third and critical issue in this race is security. for seven years we've had a president who abandons our friends and allies, shows weakness in appeasement to our enemies. now again two, debates ago donald trump explained, if he were president, he said, he would be neutral between israel and the pal stainians. . t me be very, very clear as president i will not be neutral. [applause] america will stand unapologetically with the nation of israel.
[applause] and anyone who can't tell the difference between our friends and our enemies, anyone who can't tell the difference between israel and islamic terrorists who want to murder us that raises real questions about their fitness and judgment to be commander in chief. [applause] you know, just one week ago we were all horrified by yet another terror attack this time in brussels. and every time we see one of these attacks whether it's paris, whether it's brussels or san bernardino, president obama goes on national television and refuses to even utter the words radical islamic terrorism. audience: boo!
mr. cruz: instead he lectures americans on islam phobia. this last attack, i think president obama found it very inconvenient and interrupted his baseball game with the casstrose. wasn't it delightful seeing the president with communist dictators in front of a portrait of che get vera. asn't it -- che guevara. wasn't it awful to see president obama stand up and say, you know, raul, i agree with you, america terrible? is it asking too much? to have a president of the united states who will actually defend the united states of america? [applause] over the last seven years we've
seen our military weakened, readiness degraded. morale of the troops plummeting. you know what, as a nation we've seen this before. we've seen another left wipping democratic president. jimmy carter, weaken and undermine the military. and then ronald reagan came into office. and what did he do? he cut taxes, lifting regulations small businesses explode. millions of new jobs. it generated revenue and he used it to build the military. and we won the cold war. [applause] same nd to do the exact thing with radical islamic terrorism. we're going to repeal obamacare
and pass a flat tax and pull back the regulators and stop amnesty. and we're going to see millions and millions of new jobs. it's going to create trillions for the government. we're going to rebuild this military so it renains fightiest fighting force on the face of the planet. [applause] no longer will our military be governed by political correctness. [applause] we have leaders here at home. we have strong principled leaders like sheriff clark -- stand up -- to keep us safe at home. the sheriff also knows how to make a texanat h feel e by wearing hiss boots.
[applause] but i'll tell you, sheriff, for the jihadist across the fiss of the gobe, comes january 2017, a ay of reckoning is coming. we are not going weaken. we are not going to degrade. we are going to utterly and completely destroy isis. [applause] and you know one of the most shameable aspects of the last seven years has been this president sending our fighting men and women into come back. with rules of engagement so strength that their arms are tired behind their back. they cannot win and defeat the enemy. it is wrong.
it is immoral and come 2017 it will end. >> america has always been reluctant to use military force. if and when military force is needed, we should use overwhelming force, kill the enemy and get the heck out. [applause] politics. a little [laughter] a year ago, we had 17 republican candidates in the field. it was an amazingly diverse, young, talented, dynamic field. what a contrast. t's the
democrats. socialist that are dangerous for the world and bernie sanders. [laughter] [applause] over the course of the year, we have seen what a primary is supposed to do -- the field has narrowed. where are we now? there are two candidates that had any plausible path to winning the republican nomination -- me and donald trump. wisconsin is a battleground. eyes' are onuntry
wisconsin. you have a platform, a megaphone where you are speaking not just for this state but for the entire country. the 65% offor republicans who recognize the nominating donald trump is a train wreck -- that is not fair to a train wreck. [applause] nominating donald trump will elect hillary clinton. she wins by a big margin. if hillary is the next issident, the supreme court gone for a generation, the bill of rights is lost. our kids are buried and we still stay in the same set e stagnation.
what we are seeing happening across the country is republicans are coming together and uniting behind this campaign. [applause] of the 17 candidates that started, we have seen five come together supporting this campaign. we have seen rick perry and carly fiorina and lindsey graham and jeb bush and your own tremendous governor scott walker. [applause] is the very real manifestation of the unity we need across the country to win. we have to unite. if we are divided, we will lose the primary and we will hand the
general election to hillary clinton. whos the men and women here are taking the lead to make that happen. i am here tonight asking for you. i'm asking for each of you to stand up between now and tuesday, the taken upon yourselves not just a vote, i want to ask everyone here to vote for me 10 times. [laughter] now, look, we are not democrats. [applause] i'm not suggesting voter fraud. yet nineeryone here other people to come out and vote on tuesday, you will have voted 10 times. [applause] that is how we win. it is the power of the
grassroots come the same power that stood with governor walker and the union bosses. the same power of the grassroots come the men and women who stood together and said we can beat the specialists. if we stand together and united, we are going to win the republican nomination. we are going to beat hillary clinton in november and we are going to turn this country around. [applause] it took jimmy carter to give us ronald reagan. i am convinced the most long-lasting legacy of barack obama is going to be a new generation of leaders and the republican party to stand and write for liberty, who stand and fight for the constitution, and who stand and fight for the
do we have a winner? guys.nt to claim it, >> more now from the republican dinner in wisconsin featuring john kasich. he was introduced by tommy thompson. >> thank you, thank you. i love you all. your kind david, for introduction. gentlemen, tonight is a very serious night. tonight is a night that we republicans have an opportunity like never before to change the direction of this great country. we have to do it.

[applause] i have the distinct honor to introduce in individual that is my friend. an individual i have served with , individual that is extremely andlligent, knowledgeable has always been able to do what he set out to do. i have to vote for because or that guy
somebody has to get enough votes to get the nomination. i'm here to tell you, ladies and gentlemen, there is no candidate that will have enough delegate ohio to getin to the nomination. we are going to have a contested contention and we have had 10. we republicans have had 10 contested conventions over the life of our party and only three candidatehe leading won the nomination. there was his and him and by the lincoln which we all know was the father of our party. in chicago in 1860. he was number three and he went
to the convention and he walked out of the convention as our nominee. gentlemen,ladies and that he is by far the best president we have ever had. , some people say -- i am not. to introduceight to you, my friends, in individual that i believe has a lot of characteristics, all of the attributes and a lot of the qualifications that honest aid had. our country was adrift as it is today. our country was split as it is
today. our country was in need of leadership. there is an individual by the name of john kasich that at the age of 30 went to congress and he went to congress with the idea that he will change things. we republicans believe in that and want that to happen. john kasich said i cannot wait around to become a budget chairman. i cannot wait for this in your a system so he ran against the odds and became the budget chairman. gentlemen,and 1994 thate budget in balanced the budget of the united states of america. since --ore and never it was john kasich. his leadership, ladies and
gentlemen, that made it happen. everybody said it cannot be done. john kasich did it. he decided, ladies and gentlemen, to be a mayor and he found that his state of ohio, like the state of wisconsin, under democrat leadership was adrift. he came back to the state of and, balanced the budget now there is $2 billion in surplus in ohio. jobs, created 400,000 full employment. rates, helpedbond a lot of people. especially the young and the disabled. john kasich, ladies and gentlemen, is the leader.

spirit the green bay packers have gone to the super bowl come of the university badges are going to the rose bowl, we are going to win this final four and were going to have john kasich win as the president of the united states. i need your help. let's get behind a winner. super bowl champion john kasich. ♪ mr. kasich: how about a round of applause for your fourth turned governor tommy thompson? how could you bring that congress together and get things done? i want to tell you i had the man
that runs the serbian hall come to me and introduce himself and say, my wife and i voted for you. let me also tell you, back in 1977 when i was a young man running for the state legislature, i sat down with another man that reminded me of him. this man had a shock white hair and piercing blue eyes. he called me into his office. he said, young man, you know that i am serbian. i said, yes sir. he said, i happen to know you are croatian. why don't we set that aside for the rest of this election. so i brought us together, serbians and croats. if you can do that, you can
bring anybody together. i heard 38% of people who live in this state don't know anything about me to form an opinion. i guess that is what happens when you are positive all the time and you don't inter-a demolition derby. the reason i am comfortable here is i grew up in a blue-collar town outside of pittsburgh. it was blue-collar. frankly, i don't remember meeting a republican when i was a young man. they were all democrats. my father was a democrat. he carried mail on his back. delivered mail for almost 30 years. his father was a coal miner. my grandfather died of black lung. he was losing his eyesight because of the time he spent in
the mine. my mother's mother could barely speak english. she was croatian. it was hard to communicate with her because she had few things she could say. my mother, i was told a couple of weeks ago, there are two ways to think about yourself as an ethnic. you think of some buddy who clings to that and honors it all the time, or somebody who says we are going to put that aside and become americans. my mother was one that said, we are going to emphasize americans. i did not know a lot about the history until my cousin told me that in my mother's family, there were four. her, her sister, and two brothers. my mother walked across a footbridge to get her high school diploma. my childhood was common sense, god-fearing, playing by the rules.
my mother and father always told me, johnny, you believe you can change the world. what is most important, where ever are, you make the world a little bit at her place because you were there. they also strongly believed in what america represents in the ability of people to rise. i got my values there. i have to tell you, in that little town, it is a town where if the wind blew the wrong way, people found themselves out of work. i understand people who are donald trump voters. let me to you who they are and what they worry about. they worry about the fact they
could lose their job. that they are 52 years old and somebody walks in one day and says, you are out of work. some politicians created some agreement and they lost out. people saying i have been playing by the rules and i cannot get a raise. my grandfather would come up at the end of a long day and think he could get good pay, and they would say, we will only bring you for the coal you brought up. it was a ripoff. there are many people who feel they are experiencing the ripoff. they put their money in a bank. it used to be coming you would get interest. today, we get no interest. what they really worry about, more than anything else, what they really worry about is their sons and daughters went to college to get an education because they were told if your kids get educated, they are going to have a better life.
now their kids are still living at home without a job but with big debt. this anxiety is something that people feel very strongly about. they are looking for a vehicle to express their frustration. i've got to tell you, those people i grew up with who played by the rules, and things rarely worked out in a special way, they are the people in my minds eye since i was a young politician. i have always been independent. the republican party has been my vehicle and not my master. the republican party has given me an opportunity to contribute to our society. i have always been an independent operator, somebody that looks at problems and is not concerned about who i might be upsetting on the way. i was a young state senator. yes, they raised their pay. when the pay raise past, i did not take it. when republicans said they needed to raise taxes, i ran a campaign that said we should have none. when we won the majority at age
28, they decided to raise taxes. i said no, i promised i would not. they said, you are you responsible. i said, i will write my own budget for the state. i had people sneaking in, telling me how to improve the government. i did not win the budget fight but i kept my promise and i kept my word. i made suggestions that ultimately got adopted into the law. i left the state senate. they took my district away from me. they wanted to end my career, but at age 30, i ran for congress. i had campaigned with ronald reagan. he was an inspiration to me. what he taught me was a couple of things. you have to have strength when it comes to national security. second, you have to give people
an incentive to work and give them the opportunity to rise. in 1982, i ran for the congress. iran on the reagan agenda. there were not many people running on the reagan agenda. they were running away because the economy was not doing well. iran against a democrat and comment on the fact that we could shrink taxes and rebuild the defense. in 1982, there was only one republican candidate for the u.s. congress who defeated an incumbent democrat and that person was me, john kasich. i served on the armed services committee for 18 years. let me tell you, these are difficult times. there is no time for on the job training.
being a united states congressman in 1983, i worked with republicans and conservative democrats to rebuild the military. do that experience, i worked with my friends to reform the pentagon, to change the operation of that building, with members of congress committed to a strong national defense. i was there and i remember the night, that because of the strength of ronald reagan, that berlin wall came tumbling down. that was an amazing time in american history. not as in modern history. [applause] mr. kasich: i was also there when i saw the muslims push saddam hussein out of kuwait. and i remember when we won so decisively, and people said we should of gone into baghdad to complete the job, and a remember how smart george h.w. bush was
with advisers, in not going to baghdad and the getting the job done and coming home. i was called into the pentagon after 9/11 by secretary rumsfeld, with the former secretary of defense, and from that meeting forward for a number of years i led technology experts into the pentagon to deal with technology problems. think about that arc, all the way from defeating the soviet union, the berlin wall collapsing, to a united coalition of arabs and westerners, to defeat us on -- to defeat saddam hussein, all the way to 9/11. that is why am prepared today. as a congressman, i found myself on the budget committee. i was complaining that the republicans and democrats were not serious about balancing the budget. i wanted to budget -- balance
the budget for two reasons, the immorality of leaving debt to the children, and i knew that if you could balance a budget and reduce taxes, you could put yourself in a position where you could have economic growth. what i learned was three things, creating jobs, creating more jobs, and creating all the jobs you could, because it is through job creation that allows people to recognize their god-given purpose in life to change the world and live out their destiny. i knew that fighting to balance the budget was the right thing to do. but it did not come easy. it took 10 years of my efforts and efforts of the team built to get us to the point where he actually balanced the budget for the first time since man walked on the moon. we paved out the largest amount of debt in modern history, half $1 trillion.
we also were any position where we had a $5 trillion surplus projected, it could have been used to fix social security and there s no discussion at that time about income inequality or the lack of rising wages, because when you finally balance the budget, cut taxes, restored common sense in washington, we had an explosion of economic growth and it was a glorious time in my life. i created a goal and i had met it. and after being in a position that position where we were able to balance the budget, leaving surpluses behind, i left washington because i never wanted to be a professional politician. i do not even like politics. [applause] mr. kasich: i left for 10 years and i did a variety of things that gave me more experience. some of you will remember me from when i was a giants are on fox news. anyway, i went out for 10 years. i was having a great time, i did not want to go back into politics. but i got a call. have any of you ever had a call?
it was not a phone call, it was not a text, it was not an e-mail. i think, when the lord blesses you and gives you so much, you can barely contain yourself, you also begin to understand about your responsibilities and continue to do things that can change the world. the call was, i needed to go back in and run for governor. iran at the perfect time. things could get not much worse in ohio. we had lost jobs, our credit was going down the drain, 20% of the operating budget in the whole and i went to new york and they told me, we are going to cut up your credit cards, because ohio is about dead. i ran in the election, and i had never run statewide in the state of ohio.
the only time before that somebody who had never won statewide against an incumbent, was 95 years earlier. i ran and i won. and people said, we needed to raise taxes, expand government. let me tell you what we did. i cut taxes more than any other governor in america, including no income tax for small business, killing the debt tax, so that people could pass businesses onto their families. now that we have done that, we are killing debt. we are working at it. we cut taxes more than anybody, our budget deficit went from 20% in hole, a billion dollars with of deficits to a $2 billion surplus. and we went from a loss of 350,000 jobs, to a gain of 400,000 jobs with wages growing faster than the national
average. [applause] mr. kasich: and, i want you to know that we have left nobody behind, because we believe it is a moral for the -- immoral for those people to live under the bridges, and in the prison system we are rehabilitating with an 80% success rate of those who are drug addicted in the prisons. and we believe the working poor, instead of being punished commission be rewarded. and we believe the disabled should be fully mainstreamed. as a result of that, iran for reelection and i want 86 out of 88 counties in -- and would take 2-3 days to figure out the election. the most important swing states -- [applause] mr. kasich: so i decided to run for president. you know why?
because there are two critical issues today, economic strength. as the budget committee chairman in washington, we had a massive economic is ancient -- expansion and tremendous growth. in ohio, i entered at a very tough time. and now people across the state are hopeful again. people are getting work, children can have a future. you see that model is not complicated, it takes guts. what it means is you have commonsense regulation so that you do not crush small business, and i will have a program that will freeze all federal regulations for one year, except health and safety, force congress to vote on regulation that aircraft -- that bureaucrats are writing laws, keeping us from having the kind of economic growth we want. secondly, we need to reduce
taxes on corporations that have seen fit to invest profits in europe, because we punish them if they come back. we can cut the corporate tax rate and stop double taxing businesses, i know it, because i have been in business. and we need to reduce individual tax rates. but we need to do it in such a way that we can pass it. we can go to the old reagan model with a capital gain of 15 to provide incentives and we can make the tax code clear and realistically being able to pass. i will put us, i will put us on a path to a balanced budget as i have in the past. no problems with entitlements, innovation, and i want you to know one other thing. i will welfare, medicaid, job training, and for structure back to the states, so they can provide a program in innovation and change that we all see, by shifting the power from washington.
[applause] mr. kasich: what i also would like you to know, as i get ready to leave the stage, is that it does matter who is the president. i remember when ronald reagan said it was morning in america, that we were a shining city on the hill. you think i do not know about what winston churchill said about never, never ever give up. of course i know. but the strength of our country does not rest on the president. the strength of our country rests in us. when i was a kid, we do not worship presidents, our hero was
roberto clemente, who gave up his life trying to help earthquake victims in nicaragua. he died. i remember the morning when my mother came into my room, one of the very few times i saw my mother cry, because children do not like to see their mother cry. it is unsettling, and my mother came in and said, our hero died last night. you see, i remember back then, we do not wait for somebody to come in on a white horse to try to save us. the strength of our country rests in our families. it rests in our communities. it rests in our neighborhoods. you want to fix your schools, you want to make sure that your kids are getting the skills they need, then go do it. do not wait for somebody else from madison, or somebody in washington, you do it. change the world.
if you want to fight the problem of drug abuse in this state, you grab a kid and tell that young man or young woman, that they have a god-given purpose that will be obscured and destroyed if they cave to the evils of drug addiction. can you change it? you better believe it. we have a program called, start talking, we start talking to kids and we all need to across the country. we do not need to wait for government officials, we do it in our churches, synagogues, community organization and our schools. you want to fight poverty? you have a welfare office that brings businesses in and when a person comes for a welfare check, you train them for the jobs that are in the welfare offices. you go do it. people in milwaukee did not way to fix schools, they fixed them
because they drove change and innovation and took matters into their own hands. ladies and gentlemen, the lord made us all special, for purpose. to live a life bigger than ourselves. and when we live a life bigger than ourselves, if we are a nurse, we spend 15 next are minutes with a family when the nurse is tired and tells the family, it will be ok. or a teacher, the most underpaid people on earth, who give up pay to change people's lives. i will give you another way to change the world, you have a lady who was married for 50 years. her husband died, her fund is not ring anymore. -- phone does not ring anymore. call her on monday, you say, we are taking you to dinner on saturday night. and you know where she is going on thursday? to get her hair done. somehow, when saturday night comes, despite the fact that she slept on it thursday night, friday night, that hair is perfect. and when you pick her up, she is wearing a dress that she had not worn for six months. did you change the world? you did.
you see, let's stop thinking about where we fall short. let's start thinking about all that is wrong and that celebrate the great fact that america's best days are ahead of them, if we remember the formula that made us great. it is not very complicated. it takes leadership, it takes guts, and it gets a leader to remind all of the people who make the laws in this country, that you may be a republican, you may be a democrat, but before any of that, you are an american. you are an american that is there to change the world and give everybody a chance to realize our god-given purpose. if i become president, all -- i will fix the economy, but you will restore the spirit of
i am seeing all the green and , debt and called paraphernalia. the packers. it reminds me of my dad's man cave. he is a big cheese head. he played ballis with jerry kramer back in the day. number 64. such a great player and it was both guysl football, are inducted and the high school hall of fame but jerry kramer still is the best player to never be inducted. that ia unity pledge want to propose. what if they unify for the mission in wisconsin to do
whatever it takes to get jerry kramer inducted into the in a fame?all of [applause] no matter their political leanings. packers fans, competition is so good. competition elevates the best and wisconsin, you deserve the best. what you were getting from the federal government is not the best. here in wisconsin, your middle class has been harmed probably more than any other state in the union because of federal policies that just do not make sense and really have shrunk the middle class, more than anywhere else. i want to talk about three core issues that need to be addressed. i think donald trump is the one to tackle these issues and it is
growing in prospering. the three core issues that the pursues theirs own interests at the expense of wrong country which really betrays all of us. gope, though, are the same folks -- they don't see the gop so much as an expression of the people's will, but more as an atm for their own wallet. they are really shaken up right now, they don't know what to do about the trump train, the movement of outsiders, independents. gop participants that are fed up with politics as usual. they don't know what to do about it. they are shaken up and there is an awakening, a shifting and sifting and exposing of rabid bites for into hank on for any
relevancy or their gravy train. it is leading to a very healthy cleansing of politics. it is the save our nation. the wall street connective capitalists, they do not suffer. they profit with open borders and he got suffer. when jobs are shelved offshore, they don't suffer, but they profit. like consultants, lobbyists, pushing foreign policies that cost us and cost us the blood of her finest america's sons and daughters in uniform. interests runent counter to the interests of the people. it runs counter to common sense. that is where common sense is and endangers species in washington. consider these policy issues.
first, immigration, we have submitted more immigrants than any other country on earth, four times as many. 43 million. more and more are crossing the border every single day. with washington, mismanaging money and burden upon the >> this is the stabilized the middle class and the massive crowding at the low end of the wage scale, a takeaway the latter for income stability. it supplemented wages and spurred the number of people who are now working and corporate shills that are fighting today's secretive, perl establishment, mind-boggling hundred million dollars worth of super pac's, they love the open borders and
the visa programs and more foreign workers. it is a disaster for we the people. donald trump is the only one who really understands this reality. he is a only one who creates private sector drops to bounce balance the budget. yes force candidates to own up to their actual support of participation and input -- perpetuating the problem of immigration issues that we are facing. trumpet made them talk about it. because he beat the media on that issue, they like to let their chosen one get away with not really answering questions about their betrayals, but won on that trunmp the issue, you should ask the
candidate what the heck are you thinking? what are you thinking when you go ahead and actually ask for more immigrants, even illegal immigrants. even inducing them, citizen them with gift backskets. what are you thinking? inviting more? candidates can say anything they want without immigration, amnesty. actions scream much louder than all editions words. its to increase for workers by 500%. green cars by 200%. who offered the amendment for that? to further collapse u.s. income and job insecurity -- which candidate?
up a want to talk about is trade. the last of her industry jobs represents one of the greatest betrayals of the working people in the history of modern civilization. for shame, politicians. i knew who they are. we had the greatest manufacturing sector known to man. well, it was dismantled and shipped overseas right under our noses because of political incompetence, corruption and nonsensical ideology. a third of our manufacturing jobs, a third of them, they disappeared following two major policies nafta and china entering the world trade organization. our trade treaties are not enforced, they are kind of a joke. trading partners like china are contractually banned from
unfairly subsidizing products. they do it anyway and they laugh all the way to the bank. they are cheating tactics. it is currency manipulation and we cannot compete when they devalue their currency. onmp is the only one hot this because he's the only one who understands the art of the deal. our partners cheating is how the middle class disappears. the trade ideologues say we cannot respond to foreign cheating so we will scare people to talk about threats of trade wars. wisconsin, these are the voices responsible for trade surrendering. they say we cannot enforce the rules because maybe it was made in china, maybe they don't cost more, well, if a country or company says so, they pretend.
it does i happen. what the heck? eventually come ultimately, what happens is we lose the american work ethic that built this most exceptional nation. politicians create a people that depended on government and grew government control over the people and it is the very warped and dangerous road of politics that have put us on because where we are heading with trading, well, it will ultimately, fundamentally transform americans into people we don't recognize. our kids and our grandkids will never know that. what it is to be rewarded for that entrepreneurial spirit that god created into us. to produce and to strive and to drive and to be alive. the greatest country on earth. i thank god that donald trump gets it because he lives it.
he succeeds because he knows of the art of the deal and we root him on because he roots us on and he wants the same success for our kids and for our grandkids. isk, the ideology of trade not conservative. it is radical. who is the biggest proponent of this? what candidate will go past obama's trade deal, tpp? remove the hurdles for fast tracking and actually purposefully, opening the door for china and russia who's come on in with zero congressional consul? who chose to crack down on currency? pressure onng any chinese circuits and goods? who is this?
it is not someone who understands ronald reagan. ronald reagan pushes trade enforcement than any other president in our lifetime. reagan saved the hog. your harley davidson. reagan saved that with a 45% tariff he put on japanese more cycles. they're cheating. he saved the semi conductor industry with 100% tariff. it was reagan. or any establishment will try to do a #movement. well, every country knows there is no consequence for their cheating. they are finding more aggressively and to kill american opportunity. towns.r steel the world stop using steel.
the industry died here because our politicians target our businesses for extension. they let it happen. we are the only country that is not defend our own economic interest. we are bringing the jobs back home. we're rebuilding america. he will put to work -- when a candidate says, well, look -- we don't want to do anything to increase in import. what he is saying is he is a ok or maybe ebola november us off. issue,, our third ndreign policy ana
military. it should be the gop's number one priority. only one candidate knows military superiority to protect our interests, not just piecemeal together some reckless -- ouruilding, overseas military might, protecting interests keeps us free. the threat of our times is at unwavering and islamic beliefs that we, peaceloving generous americans, that we are infidels. talksonly trump rationally about listening to president ands and i hiring the best of the best the work alongside with the commander in chief, to work with those who share interests in stopping the islamic threat. seasefeating isis over
with strong, strong military strike and spurring allies to get more engaged. at the same time, keep extremists from using our borders that are purpose the left open. using those waters to let them come here where they will unleash terror here. it is not something to laugh at, friends. well, that is more of the common sense stuff that the campaigns validate. only those independents and big donor demands get to exercise. hey, there's a reason the big money and open borders and radical special interests are so madly anti-trump. his positions are not radically all.-gop positions at it's radically anti-trump
because they know nothing will change unless an outsider who the people support gets in there. the same politicians continuing the same old policies trashing our economy, shipping out jobs and letting us but the bill for everyone else. the same old politico and insiders who betray us over and over and over again. enough. you deserve better. it is funny, but not really. about mr.anctimonious trumps tone are personally responsible for what cost american lives and trillions of dollars. enough is enough. enough is holier than thou lectures from those serious.
first foreign policy and smart immigration where we troubley not invite like evil recruits setting up shop. that is the essence of the long-term strategy. our militaryecting to make it second to none. caring for our troops, loving our veterans, paying them what is due and their earned health care. physical, mental health care. not pretending like tragedy does not rage in our military community base. friends, 22 veterans a day commit suicide. 22 of america's finest. on,e no reason to keep well, i don't hear any other
candidates campaigns talking about our veterans. but, we are because we care. their sacrifices and not be in s will not be in vain. we will never,ever, lieberman and women behind. our men and women behind. we will not would treat. theever it takes to defeat one who did leave our boys behind, with no apology, just a flippant what difference does it make? that is a embodiment of all that is wrong with what we are really of against -- republicans. [applause] and, what we're really against,
