Make a Strong Case to Middle-Class Voters
In 2008, more Americans watched Obama’s and McCain’s convention addresses than watched the opening ceremonies at the Olympic Games in Beijing. Half a million more watched McCain than Obama. If those numbers hold this time, Republicans will have a great platform for making their case for building up the middle class through reforming taxes, growing small businesses, and reining in the size and scope of government. The Democratic convention will be all about tearing down the rich, rather than supporting families and small businesses, so why not draw the contrast first? Every speaker in Tampa should make the case for Republican policies that allow middle-class families to achieve the American Dream again, and warn viewers about the dangers of Obama dividing Americans against one another.
