Skip to comments.Christie tapped as keynote speaker for Republican convention

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will deliver the keynote address at next month's Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL.
NBC News' Jamie Gangel reported Wednesday that Christie would be afforded the plum speaking slot at the convention, a gig that sometimes serves as a launching pad for political figures with ambitions of higher office. The selection of Christie, though, would seem to suggest that Christie is not likely the choice by Mitt Romney to serve as the GOP's vice presidential nominee.
Typically, the keynote speaker is separate from the vice presidential nominee, who, like the presidential nominee, speaks on separate nights.
Republicans have not yet released a detailed itinerary of the speaking schedule for their convention.

the 'life of the mother' claim is a bit vague though, particularly when spoken by a politician..it sounds so logical..unfortunately its just another way to provide wiggle room to abortion industry or to communicate 'wink-wink I'm actually pro-choice'.
Well put and I agree on the moral question here.
You can’t really enforce the morality totally. I believe it was a founding father who said that this system of government assumes and requires moral people.
I think the ‘life of the mother’ exemption is moral - as you described it. I also think politicians and abortionists will use it for immoral purposes nonetheless.
thanks for your reply.
If you like squishy, spineless, a-hole "Republicans" who are little more than Democrat light, there are other places for you to go and sell out your principles on.
"Ignorant" my ass newbie...
Having an "oops" because you are promiscuous should not be justification enough for an ongoing campaign of murder...
Sounds like if we can just avoid Jebbie or Condi for VP, we can proclaim success with the hand the uninformed Republican primary voters have served us again!
Nobody is doing cheerleading for GOP-e. Nobody said anything about liking “squishy, spineless, a-hole Republicans”. Just trying to educate you before you lose all your credibility.
Actually, you are doing some cheer leading right now. Which makes your “ credibility” non-existent...
Gov. Crispy Cream of NJ is absolutely the wrong OPTIC for the party.
He will represent a party which is out of touch with starving poor people.
He is clearly the wrong OPTIC ! 400 lbs of blubber is very poor marketing. Crispie Cream sells the same old excess, out of control.
If he has to speak, do it by video.
