he GOP is slowly releasing the names of speakers for the upcoming convention in Tampa. Today it was announced that former presidential candidate Rick Santorum would address the delegates. Among the other confirmed speakers is former Republican Party presidential candidate U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ).
As the Republican Party prepares to challenge an incumbent President in November, it needs to have total unity in its ranks. One good way to solidify support from conservatives and Tea Party activists who are lukewarm toward presumptive nominee Mitt Romney is to invite former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to speak at the convention.

John McCain will give a speech where he will say there is nothing to fear with giving Obama another 4 years.
Rick Santorum can bite me, he is the reason we have Romney for a candidate.
Can we NOT give the microphone to John McCain, PRETTY PLEASE, with cream and sugar and peaches and cream I beg you NOT to give him any public microphone. He is Burnt Toast.
I like Palin, but her speaking at the GOP convention is not going to sway me one iota towards voting for Romney.
Uh-huh. And, if you wait for this to happen, your neighbors will find your dead, dusty body in front of the TV waiting for Palin to speak at the convention.
After the '10 election and the number of Tea Party candidates we sent to Washington, the establishment GOP made it clear that Tea Party candidates would either toe to e-GOP line, or find themselves out in the cold. And, true to their word, the e-GOP elitists have done everything they could to undermine the Tea Party candidates.
IMO, we can demand all we like, the e-GOP is NOT going to welcome the defacto leader of the Tea Party (Palin) to speak and pretend that we are all one big happy family. We aren't. The Tea Party is conservative, the e-GOP is moderate. From their perspective, it's like mixing oil and water.
You can say that about all of the "not Romneys" and who all equally ran lousy campaigns.
I’m starting to think that “Mittens” is about to become “claws” by adding Sarah as VP
