CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Full prepared remarks for President Barack Obama’s nomination acceptance speech include comments standing up for gay citizens and other minorities often scapegoated for America’s problems:

“…[W]e don’t think that government is the source of all our problems — any more than are welfare recipients, or corporations, or unions, or immigrants, or gays, or any other group we’re told to blame for our troubles.”
