Kohl calls GOP party of no

U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl told delegates that what's left of the Republican Party is now on radio and TV constantly saying no to the Dems' agenda.

Kohl said the GOP is saying no to protecting the environment, reforming the financial system and overhauling health care.

"The American people are tired of the party of 'no'," Kohl said.

"Americans have been hoping and waiting for solutions for too long. Now is the time to bring the results that people are hungry for."

Kohl told delegates there is nothing "more important to the future of our country economically and morally" than solving the health care crisis, pledging Dems would finish the task.

Kohl thanked the crowd for helping to turn Wisconsin from purple to "true blue" and helping to end eight years of Republican rule. He said the effort is now underway to improve the country's image around the world and that President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were working to extend a hand of peace.

"The United States is once again becoming a shining city on the hill to people all over the globe," Kohl said.
