Republican National Convention Address
Former President Ronald Reagan recalled the years of “tumult and triumph” of the human race during his lifetime in an address to the Republican National Convention in Houston, TX. President Reagan lauded the current state of America, which he said was basically sound but appeared distorted through the speeches of the Democrats. He recalled the dismal economy that existed prior to his presidency, and noted the possibilities available to America in the next century. The former president lauded the performance of President Bush, and called for a balanced budget amendment and the line-item veto. President Reagan spoke to an appreciative audience, who cheered during pauses in his speech and broke out periodically into chants of “Reagan, Reagan,” and “Thank You, Ron.” His wife Nancy joined him on stage following his remarks. close
