Two Speeches to Compare and Contrast

There were a couple of speeches given yesterday, one by Mitt Romney, the other by Joe Biden. One offered solutions to the problems causes by Progressivism, the other made baseless accusations and hinted at racism.

For ten points and a chance to advance to the next round of our competition, guess which speech was given by whom.

Speech #1

America runs on freedom. Free men and women, pursuing their dreams, working hard to build a better future for their families. This is what propels our economy. When an American succeeds, when she wins a promotion, when he creates a business, it is that individual, that American that has earned it, that has built it. Government does not build our businesses, the American people do.
The American people also build the government. We pay for it with our taxes. We choose who will lead us with our votes.

Speech #2

Look at what they value and look at their budget and what they’re proposing. [He] wants to let the—he said in the first 100 days, he’s going to let the big banks once again write their own rules–unchain Wall Street. They’re going to put y’all back in chains. He’s said he’s going to do nothing about stopping the practice of outsourcing…
 Stumped? OK, I'll give you a hint: one speaker knew where he was, the other didn't.
