Rep. Paul Ryan, the vice presidential nominee of the Republican Party, hit a home run with his speech at the Republican National Committee. His words were profound, enlightening and electrifying. His delivery was extraordinary. I have heard many political speeches through the years, but this ranks as one of the most memorable. It was a speech for posterity, not mere beads of words threaded for the pop culture set. His speech was forceful, yet kind. Serious, yet witty. These were the words of a Statesman.
I am a Boomer. I have an enormous amount of respect for Generation X. They, like the baseball pitchers of fame, are the closers. Mr. Ryan represents the best of this emerging generation. (And anyone who appreciates AC/DC is okay with me.)
God bless America.
