Donald Trump’s well received speech at this year’s CPAC reminds me of his 2011 speech, when he was considering a run for president.

Can you tell me without looking it up, which speech this comes from?

And I can tell you this.  If I run and if I win, this country will be respected again.  This country will be respected again.  I can tell you that. [applause]

I graduated from the Wharton School of Finance, which is the best business school, in my opinion, but I graduated from the Wharton School of Finance as well as military school.  Both of those educational backgrounds have come into play to shape my personal and business relationship with what I do, who I do it with.  There are tactics and strategies involved in any form of leadership, and I’m well acquainted with both.  I am also well acquainted with winning, and that’s what this country needs now: winning. [cheers, applause]

Just very briefly, I’m pro-life. [cheers, applause]  I’m against gun control [applause].  I agree with your previous speaker.  And I will fight to end Obamacare and replace it [cheers, applause] —replace it with something that makes sense for people in business and not bankrupt the country. [cheers, applause]

If I decide to run, I will not be raising taxes. [cheers, applause]  We’ll be taking in hundreds of billions of dollars from other countries that are screwing us. [cheers, applause]  We’ll be creating vast numbers of productive jobs. [cheers]  Thank you very much.  And we’ll rebuild our country so that we can be proud.  Our country will be great again.  Thank you very much; it’s an honor. [applause]

It is from the 2011 speech, but it matches perfectly with this year’s speech and what he said on the campaign trail.  I especially liked it when he said: Our country will be great again.
