Newscast Media TAMPA, Fla—Former Secretary of State delivered a powerful message of inclusiveness at the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Rice said Americans are our own worst enemies.

"The essence of America — that which really unites us — is not ethnicity, or nationality or religion — it is an idea — and what an idea it is:  That you can come from humble circumstances and do great things.  That it doesn't matter where you came from but where you are going. 

"Ours has never been a narrative of grievance and entitlement.  We have not believed that I am doing poorly because you are doing well.  We have not been envious of one another and jealous of each other’s success. Ours has been a belief in opportunity and a constant battle — long and hard — to extend the benefits of the American dream to all — without regard to circumstances of birth," she said.

Martinez talked about the importance of bi-partizanship in getting accomplishing governmental responsibilities.

"It is the responsibility of both parties to offer up real solutions and have an honest debate.
In New Mexico, I inherited the largest structural deficit in state history. And our legislature is controlled by Democrats. We don't always agree. But we came together in a bi-partisan manner-and turned that deficit into a surplus, all without raising taxes.  

"That's not the kind of leadership we are seeing from President Obama. He promised to bring us all together, to cut unemployment, to pass immigration reform in his first year and even promised to cut the deficit in half in his first term. Do you remember that? But he hasn't come close.  They haven't even passed a budget in Washington, DC in three years! If he can take credit for government building small businesses, then he can accept responsibility for breaking his promise and adding 5 trillion dollars to the national debt. Because he did build that," she said.
