President George Bush delivered a brief speech to the Republican National Convention (RNC) from the White House. A video of his speech is available on YouTube. The president focused on Ariz. Sen. John McCain’s experience in the war as a measure of strong leadership.
The New York Times offers both a video and transcript of Sen. Joe Lieberman’s RNC address. The site allows you to jump to sections of the speech by selecting from the themes Lieberman discussed. Lieberman made a point to stress the dangers of partisanship while appealing to liberal and moderate voters.
A video of former Sen. Fred Thompson’s speech at the RNC is available on C-SPAN.org. Thompson focused on the difference between Republicans and Democrats, including the difference between Ill. Sen. Barack Obama and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
Gov. Palin will make her debut tonight at the RNC. The speech will be Palin’s first chance to tell voters directly where she stands on issues, though conservatives have been especially impressed with her pro-life and pro-gun platforms.
