In the lead up to the conventions full of more hot air than that being pushed ahead of a hurricane, Rush claims gubmint weather modifications were used to cancel GOP convention and Robertson says the big guy did same to protect Tampa. Plus, GOP grassroots members may be forced out of convention starting today, according to Red State
"At 2:00 p.m. today in Tampa, the Republican National Committee, led by Team Romney, is moving to shut down conservative grassroots activists. I’ve been on the phone with several individuals involved in the fight who tell me that the fight is not over, it is only just starting."
"Specifically, the media is reporting that the rules fight is over because Team Romney is abandoning Ben Ginsberg’s effort to allow candidates to control delegates. Under an initial proposal, delegates would, in effect, be chosen by the presumed nominee’s campaign and not based on votes in the states and delegate selection processes in the states."
Will Rand Paul sell out his dad for 30 pieces of end times silver/gold?
This is an Open thread folks as the next 2 weeks promise to be a doozy of a storm, so hang on to your parasols and straw hats.
Some Updates tonight from twitter:
@ GingerGibson : Number of times "I" appears in Christie's prepared text:37. Number of times "Romney" appears: 7
@ howardfineman : A tough, harsh, nasty speech by Chris Christie -- but effective for the GOP base if nowhere else.
@ jbendery : 20 mins into his speech, Chris Christie actually stops talking about himself and says Mitt Romney's name for the first time.
@ howardfineman : Ann said nothing in particular by way of a narrative; did not mention her MS or their charity or any direct mention of the Mormon Church.
