Marco Rubio to introduce Mitt Romney at RNC
St. Petersburg - Tampa Bay Times ^ | August 14, 2012 | Richard Danielson

TAMPA — In a showcase role on his party's biggest stage, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will introduce Mitt Romney for his speech to accept the nomination for president on the last night of the Republican National Convention.

It is an introduction aimed at giving Romney a boost from a rising star in a must-win state, but it will almost certainly further enhance Rubio's standing, too.

....The GOP expects the audience to be huge. Four years ago, Sen. John McCain's acceptance speech drew 38.9 million viewers nationwide, a figure that approaches the viewership of the opening ceremonies at the London Olympics and is similar to the Oscars.

Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus called the senator "without a doubt one of America's most dynamic and inspiring leaders."

"It is fitting that he will take on such an important role at our convention in his home state," Priebus said. "Throughout his career, he has shown true dedication to constitutional principles, fiscal responsibility and free enterprise. As the son of immigrants, he has witnessed the promise of the American Dream firsthand and has worked to secure that promise for future generations."

In a statement of his own released through the RNC, Rubio said he's confident Romney and Ryan will "restore great leadership to our country."

"Future generations of Americans depend on the hard work we will do in the weeks and months ahead," he said. "I know that together we will be successful in changing Washington and putting leaders in place who are committed to creating more jobs and opportunities for our people."....

Kind of like the Jimi Hendrix Experience being the warm up band for The Monkees.

So is Rubio a traitor or can he clearly see that America needs to dump Obama?

I'm not being rude to you, CW, but who gives a rip who introduces that statist, homosexualist, abortionist, gun-grabbing, social corporatist?

Really, who gives a rip who introduces ANY politician!

But....a radical liberal.

He should be introduced by Benito Mussolini's dead carcass.

It’s not personal, GV, it’s business.

Romney is a lying, statist, homosexualist, abortionist, gun-grabbing, social corporatist

I don’t want to hear Romney’s BS. Why can’t they bring out Newt and John King for a repeat performance?!

RomneyBOTs are proOBAMA.

Always have been. Always will be.

Did you send Obama pizza, like Mr. RomneyCARE?
Did you defend Obama on TARP, like Mr. RomneyCARE?

Did you defend Obama on his absent docs, like Mr. RomneyCARE?

For me it is personal. My business, my clients’ businesses, their clients’ businesses, will not survive four more years of this.

You can take your religious lithmus tests, desire to be goverened by a Pastor in Chief, and stick it.

I know what Romney is, but he will not scare business and the economy.

Isn't that meme getting a little old...everybody knows what Romney is...but he has picked a VP who is a great conservative in Ryan to reach out to conservatives...

All you hate Romney guys are suppressing the GOP vote and ultimately supporting Obama

We all understand your position...now can you just shut up about it...?

I am holding my nose and voting for Romney for one reason alone...I cannot look in grandchildren in the eye and think I helped even in a small way to deny them a full life of freedom liberty and peace from tyranny coming with a another four years of the POS Marxist in office

....”We’ve got to step up our game and mobilize our supporters — starting right now.

Donate $3 or right now to help us rally our base around President Obama’s agenda >>

Listen to what one Republican supporter said about Paul Ryan: “I love him...He’s going to excite the Tea Party and get them on board...”

We can’t let the Republicans claim the momentum. Donate $3 or whatever you can:
