Condoleezza Rice RNC Speech: U.S. Standing In The World Is At Risk

Posted: Updated:

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

TAMPA, Fla. — Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says raising U.S. standing in the world depends on solving problems at home, and that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is the man to accomplish that task.

Rice, in her prepared speech to the Republican National Convention, does not mention President Barack Obama by name. But she says the America's position as the most successful political and economic experiment in history is in danger today.

She speaks of the crisis in education and asks for immigration laws that protect the country's borders while meeting economic needs.

She says there is a sense that America has for too long carried the burdens of supporting free people and free markets, but that if the United States does not lead no one will lead, fostering chaos.
