The RNC has started sending us copies of today’s speeches, with the specific instructions that these are “embargoed until delivery.” But these speeches are dumb and boring and terribly predictable and inconsequential anyway, so we’re going to blow the embargo, because we can, and because embargoes are stupid, and because we really don’t care if the RNC cuts us off.

First up, today’s speech from Nebraska Republican Senate candidate Deb Fischer. She’s a rancher and “citizen legislator” driven to politics by Barack Obama’s suckiness.

Thank you. I'm not your typical politician. I'm a wife. I'm a mother of three grown sons, a

rancher, a small business owner and a citizen-legislator.

 

Becoming a U.S. Senator has never been an ambition of mine. But over the last four years, I've

become dismayed with the record spending, the record debt, and the record unemployment.

 

The Obama administration has been out of touch with the American people, and they've driven

our country towards the edge of a fiscal cliff.

 

We're on track to become the first generation that passes on fewer opportunities to the next. And

that is unacceptable.

 

But it doesn't have to be this way. I'm running for the U.S. Senate because I know we can do

better.

 

I've been a Senator in the Nebraska legislature these past eight years. And in Nebraska, we have

an unemployment rate of only 4 percent.

 

How did we get there? We cut spending. We balance our budget every year. We passed the

biggest tax relief package in the history of our state.

 

And most importantly, we got government out of the way and let the private sector do what it

does best: grow our economy and create jobs.

 

We've done it in Nebraska, and I know we can do the same thing in Washington, because we

only have two options left.

 

We can either continue the same failed policies of the past, or we can begin to make the tough

decisions and lead our country responsibly.

We have a tremendous opportunity to set our country in a new, more prosperous direction, and it

begins in November.

 

Thank you so much, and may God Bless America.
