2016 RNC Day 2: Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, and Dr. Ben Carson

On Day 2 of the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump finally locked down the Republican nomination for President. That fact was the most important storyline of the day, but there were other interesting moments as well, and we’ve got a few of them for you right here.

Donald Trump Jr. could have been confused for a presidential candidate as he delivered what may have been the best speech of the convention thus far. Besides Trump Jr., we also heard from Chris Christie, who argued that we should be prosecuting Hillary Clinton. [score]Paul Ryan[/score] spoke but didn’t really seem to have much to say, and Dr. Ben Carson argued that it’s time to take America back.

Chris Christie:

Tonight, as a former federal prosecutor, I welcome the opportunity to hold her accountable for her performance and her character…

We cannot reward incompetence and deceit. We need to demand more than what Hillary Clinton offers for America.
We know exactly what four years of Hillary Clinton will bring: all the failures of the Obama years, but with less charm and more lies. It is our obligation to stop Hillary Clinton now and never let her within 10 miles of the White House again.
It is time to come together and make sure that Donald Trump is our next President.
I am proud to be part of this team.
Now let’s go win this thing.

 

Paul Ryan:

“The Republican Party stands as the great enduring alternative party. We offer a better way for America, with reforms that actually work.”

 

Dr. Ben Carson:

One of the things that I have learned about Hillary Clinton is that one of her heroes, her mentors, was Saul Alinsky. And her senior thesis was about Saul Alinsky.

This was someone that she greatly admired and that affected all of her philosophies subsequently. Now, interestingly enough, let me tell you something about Saul Alinsky, he wrote a book called Rules For Radicals. On the dedication page, it acknowledges Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom.

Now think about that. This is a nation where our founding document — The Declaration of Independence– talked about certain rights that come from our Creator. This is a nation where it says ‘We are one nation under God.’

This is a nation where every coin in our pocket and every bill in our wallet says, ‘In God we trust,’ so are we willing to elect someone as president who has as their role model somebody who acknowledges Lucifer? Think about that…

Thomas Jefferson said that we would reach this point, because we the people would not be paying attention and it would allow the government to grow to expand and to metastisize and try to rule us. He said, before we turn into something else, we, the people, would recognize what was going on, what we were about to lose and we would rise up and we would take control of our nation — and I say now is the time for us to rise up and take America back.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
