They've got Romney's drift ~ they know who he is. I really don't think he'll get any of their votes. That means he needs Republicans.
I would have liked to have heard Allen West make a speech. Instead they are going to feature Artur Davis, a former Alabama Democrat congressman. Both are good. Allen West of course is a great speaker and a bit of a firebrand. Davis is more Ivy League. Would have enjoyed both being there!
I honestly do thin Reince Preibus is a genius.
What he has done to turn blue Wisconsin to red is nothing short of amazing.
Let's hear some details on that from the Mittbots.
I think Romney is telling a lie. These people get a taste of baby flesh they just won't let go.

Declined to run
The following people were the focus of presidential speculation in past media reports, but ultimately decided not to run as independent candidates.
Laurie Roth, Radio Talk Show Host - Roth announced her candidacy for the American Independent Party in November 2011. She also ran for the nomination of the Constitution Party, but lost at the convention. She withdrew from the American Independent Party race in July, after claiming before that she would run Independent. But she then endorsed Republican nominee Mitt Romney and said that she would try to help America in other ways.
Lou Dobbs, broadcast journalist and commentator, of New Jersey
Ron Paul, U.S. Representative, of Texas and Republican nominee
Donald Trump, businessman and television personality, of New York
Jesse Ventura, former Governor of Minnesota
Ralph Nader, attorney, Consumer advocate, and perennial presidential candidate of Connecticut
Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City
Bernie Sanders, Socialist Senator, of Vermont
Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks
No nominee - Americans Elect announced on May 17, 2012 that it would not field a candidate for President, as no candidate garnered enough support in the organization’s online primary to reach its self-imposed threshold for the nomination.
Boston Tea Party
No nominee - the Boston Tea Party dissolved itself on July 22, 2012, citing decline in membership activity.
I should add that the Communist Party USA Endorses Obama for 2012 like they did in 2008.
The folks arranging the program KNOW that things like this ~ http://www.wnd.com/2012/08/arab-spring-run-amok-brotherhood-starts-crucifixions/ ~ are NOT part of Romney’s campaign, and they’ll do everything they can to keep any SOCON issues like that from being mentioned during the campaign. Frankly, I”m not at all surprised to find Romney doesn’t particularly care one way or the other about Christians being crucified, nor does his spirit brother Obama.
Naw, Preibus is far from being a genius ~ he’s a Mittbot and the Wisconsin thing is Walker’s creation.
