The Obama campaign spared not a moment to respond to Paul Ryan’s and Mitt Romney’s convention speeches. Yet its reply was at least as negative in character as it accused Ryan’s and Romney’s speeches of being. Rather than speak to the substance of their rivals’ remarks, Barack Obama continued the same assault against the Republican candidates’ characters that he has been waging for months.
The official GOP platform approved at the Republican National Convention in Tampa included tough language rejecting the United Nations “sustainability” scheme known as Agenda 21 for the threat it represents to national sovereignty, drawing praise from conservative and Tea Party leaders across the country.
