VP’s Speechwriting Career Explained in Full
Vice President Mike Pence spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference in January, but it’s been four months since he took the stage.
Now he’s back to writing his speeches for Vice President Joe Biden.
Pence is also preparing to deliver the speech of his own presidency in March.
Here’s everything you need to know about Vice President Pence’s speechwriting career.
Vice President Biden Says ‘My Speechwriting Is A Part of My Career’ VP Joe Biden has been a speechwriter since he entered politics in 2008.
But his career as a speech writer started as soon as he got his undergraduate degree in journalism.
“I remember in the ninth grade, I had a speech that I was going to deliver to my graduating class, which I got to write the final paragraph of,” Pence said.
“So I remember thinking to myself, I want to give that speech, because I know that in a year’s time, I’ll be a speech editor, and I’ll write all the words in it.
I’m going to write it.”
Pence continued, “So the first thing that I did was I sat down with my teacher and I said, ‘I’m going a little bit more to the side and I’m thinking about writing a little more about how you guys are going to be different people, how you’re going to have different values, and how you have different views than the rest of us.'”
Pence then went on to explain how he wrote his speech, describing how he was thinking about different themes, such as his thoughts on immigration, gun control, the environment, and foreign policy.
Pence said that he wrote the speech because he was “just going to go ahead and say, ‘Look, this is what I think,'” and then he said he wrote it because he wanted to make it clear that he would write a lot more about what he wanted the audience to know, and that he wanted it to be his speech.
“The last paragraph of the speech is kind of what I’m about to say,” Pence continued.
“There are two paragraphs that I’m doing a lot of thought about in my head, and it’s one paragraph and it says ‘I want to be the person who does the right thing in this country, not the person whose opinion I have about it,'” he said.
Pence continued to explain that his goal as a writer was to “write a book, a movie, or a musical or whatever you want to call it, and have the people I’m writing about understand why they’re doing the right things.”
He then said that the first paragraph of his speech was a “very personal” piece of writing, because it was “about me,” and that it was the first sentence he wrote about his personal beliefs, including his belief that people who are born here should have a chance to be citizens.
“That was a very personal piece of speech,” Pence explained.
“And it was so personal to me because it reflected my belief in the values that I have.
And that’s where I came up with a few ideas for the book.” “
So then, I thought about it, ‘What if I could write that for the next president?
And that’s where I came up with a few ideas for the book.”
Pence also told the audience that he had written a book on what he believed in, “The Pursuit of Happiness,” which he said was a book he wrote in his senior year of college.
VP Pence’s ‘Pursuit of Happyness’ Book Is Now in the Works VP Joe Pence’s “Pursue of Happyment” book was a long-awaited memoir that would detail his relationship with Vice President Anthony Weiner, who was accused of engaging in sexting with several women while he was governor of New York.
Pence told attendees at CPAC in 2015 that he was working on a book and was aiming for it to come out by the end of 2020.
Pence had written the book with his then-wife, Mary Pat, and their children, who were not present at CPDC.
Pence’s book has been delayed by several deadlines, including a book contract dispute with Penguin Random House, which led to it being published in late 2016, but Pence said he had a “pretty good book” ready to go when he finished the book.
VP Joe is Back in the Writing Room!
VP Joe was back on the stage this weekend, speaking to the audience.
Pence announced that Vice President Joseph Biden would be speaking to him at CPCon, which he had previously scheduled.
Pence also said that Biden would also be speaking at CPConf, which was later canceled.
Pence went on, “I think it’s going to make the world a better place, and maybe a better President.”
