That's the only thing anyone can say about Romney -- including Romney himself!
As to why Gingrich, Bachmann and Palin weren't invited to speak . . . long memories, maybe? I seem to recall reading that Reagan spoke at the '76 GOP convention and wowed them so much that there was much shaking of heads among the delegates and asking, "Why didn't we nominate him?"
Marco Rubio will also introduce Romney
Good point. Romney pales in comparison to any of those three.
Mark Levin is turning into quite the fire breathing Constitution evangelist. He gives great speeches almost every night. And he doesn't care whose feelings he hurts. Put him in a room full of conservative activistists and they're likely to burn the entire Republican leadership in effigy.
Levin's scatter-shooting would leave a lot of punctured self important egos.
HE’S the bomb!
They invited Huckabee? What losers.
How about Jan Brewer? Is she speaking, or is Nikki Haley their only token female?
Thanks for posting that list.
What genius decided to let Chris Christi give the keynote speech? They should have given it to Rand Paul or Allen West.
Let’s see... Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin are key states in play - and each has key speakers scheduled. I’d add a few more, but that’s always going to be the case. It looks like a good plan to this Fiscal and Social Conservative.
I guess the genius is Reince Priebus with help from Romney ans his staff of rinos.
I’ll take Christie for the keynote this year. He’s a GOP governor in a Democrat-run state that swept into power, took no guff and cleaned up a corrupt and bloated “budget” process. Since that’s exactly what we need in Washington right now, who would be better to set that table than the governors of New Jersey and Wisconsin?
The constant sniping by the midgets in the CP only make you look smaller.
I never watch conventions. None of what they show on TV is what matters. Lots of really interesting stuff happens at conventions (especially designing the party platform) but it’s never on TV, the best you can do is hope somebody writes a tell all book.
It came and it went already in April. Virgil Goode was nominated. He is a far better choice than Romney in a lot of areas.
The GOP Convention is missing some really good people who could fire up the base and should have been the nominee.
+1 We don’t do tv anyway, but I’m not even going to see about C SPAN. Except for Scott Walker, there’s no one speaking that I’m interested in hearing (& that’s my diplomatic way of putting it).
I’m happy enough about Paul Ryan, but it will only be feminine restraint that keeps me from spitting as I cast my vote. Ugh. I am DIS-gusted.
I would disagree .. I would say it's time to go out and drag more Tea Party people into their local Republican Executive Committees. We need to continue to build - it's not somthing that happens over night.
Who might those Freepers be? The Gay lobby? The Romney Botts?
When the RNC calls, begging for a donation, I will explain how they get nothing from me because they didn’t include conservatives at the Convention. It is just another reason why I will never contribute to the national committee.
