Once again this wonderful republic that we are privileged to live in.
He has worked the process worked.
It's the people of Iowa who chose tonight it wasn't the pundits it wasn't the media and while this -- been a very tough campaign.
We should never forget that it's crucible will make the eventual nominee.
Tried for even the tougher battle that is yet to come against Barack Obama.
I am so proud of the people who have run our campaign here in Iowa.
And I am will be for -- grateful to this wonderful state -- to the wonderful people of Iowa or for launching us on our path to victory.
In Iowa's dropped ball.
And this seat is given voice to people all over our country that Barack Obama's liberal policies are.
Finish and that in 2012.
There will be another occupant in the White House who knows maybe even another Michelle and the White House.
And that once again it's the people's voice that will be heard there and make no mistake as I have said often and early on this campaign Barack Obama will -- I'll watch Sarah -- the day.
Did you hear that America that you -- -- from Iowa.
I have a very real person I am not a politician nor do I ever -- or aspire to be a politician.
I -- the government was doing to all of us to our children.
And doing to our liberties and so I decided to stand up.
I decided that I was going to fight not only for our five children 123 Foster children but also for your children to because they deserve it.
We deserve to give them a better in a more hopeful future.
It's really true and -- -- artists say we have strayed from the vision of our founders' view of government.
And the 2012.
Election might very well be our last opportunity.
To reclaim our liberty from a government that somehow seems bent on taking more and more of it away from us every day.
But since day one of Barack Obama's presidency.
I have led the fight in Washington against his liberal socialist policies.
And when the president wanted to one trillion dollar stimulus package.
I said now.
And when the President Bush to take over your health care and replace it with socialize medicine.
I led 40000.
People to Washington DC to let the president know that the American people were against it.
We don't want socialized medicine we're not going to keep socialize medicine.
And Barack Obama socialize medicine will be repealed.
When the president said last summer he wanted to raise the debt -- -- -- an unbelievable sixteen trillion dollars.
Eyes said it now.
Over the last three years the American people have tragically been deprived in their president a leader.
Is he routinely withers when he's confronted with the Paramount challenges of our generation.
President Obama is guarded and guided by as hard and ideology.
And he's held.
And withheld any prospects for economic recovery.
Is he routinely places his own political fortunes and his own reelection plans above the interests of the American people.
Look no further than his denial of building the keystone to pipeline that was all about his several re election.
Nothing to do with energy independence for the American people.
His liberal -- -- all and -- the American people and our economy will finally be free.
Because you see what we need is a candidate in the likeness and image of -- Ronald Reagan.
Who has the ball differences necessary to take -- Barack Obama.
What we need is a fearless conservative one was no compromises on their record on spending on health care on crony capitalism.
I'm defending America I'm standing with our ally Israel.
On securing our borders from illegal immigrants -- on defending innocent.
Unborn life are protecting marriage between one man and one woman.
If anyone -- -- so we can defeat Barack Obama and his failed socialist policies.
I believe that I am that that true conservative who can't and who will defeat Barack Obama and 2012.
And over the next few days just be prepared the abundance of the.
Press will again try and pick the nominee based on tonight's results but there are many more chapters to be written on the path to our party's nomination.
And I'd prefer to let the people of the country decide who'll represent us.
And of course I'm very deeply grateful to our Iowa team to the many Dow dedicated volunteers have given so much of their time to this effort.
It's absolutely amazing to see our offices filled day after day with young people.
And they selflessly volunteered because they need to have a better future.
Full of more opportunities than our generation had.
And I also think all of the volunteers who have been there almost on a daily basis making phone calls.
From before the straw -- you know who you are I know who you are and I think you for your dedication.
I hope you know how much your dedication not only meant to me but to our country.
