WHAT WAS THE FINAL RESULT OF THE GOP CONVENTION IN TAMPA?
Here is a brief summary of what REALLY happened during the GOP convention
- First of all, the famous “Screaming of USA” when the Puerto Rican delegation was presenting their votes….It was reported that these were Ron Paul supporters…no, it was a group of rednecks screaming. But why did it have to happen when a woman, and a Hispanic woman was about to speak? Things that make you go whmmm……
- The “sudden” CHANGE OF RULES! According to cpflorida.com, this happened: According to the rules of the Party, 5 States are required to nominate a candidate for President and allow him to speak and petition delegates for his candidacy. Six States nominated Ron Paul for President. And, those six states mentioned do not include the “apparent Ron Paul delegate majority state of Maine”. So Ron Paul and Mitt Romney should have been fighting it out amongst the delegates in Tampa right? No….So what does the Republican Party do? They change the rule to 8 states right there!
- According to reports, some merchants In Tampa will have to CLOSE THEIR BUSINESSES due to the fact that they were practically shut down as a consequence of the Convention.
- It was proven that the GOP has NO IDEA of what the Hispanic vote is or means. At least the other side has “an appearance” that makes them look like they know.
- Apparently, there were also some racial problems, according to 2012talkingpointsmemo.com: Underscoring the convention coverage since the first real day of speeches began has been the nasty incident in which attendees taunted a black CNN camerawoman by throwing peanuts and saying, “This is how we feed the animals.” Though the convention organizers strongly condemned the incident, the victim of the taunts, Patricia Carroll said that behavior is a sign that the GOP is not exactly comfortable with African-Americans. “You come to places like this, you can count the black people on your hand,” Carroll told the Maynard Institute. “They see us doing things they don’t think I should do.” There are not that many black women there,” she said of the hall in Tampa. On stage Rice and Utah congressional candidate Mia Love were greeted with enthusiastic cheers, but for Carroll the message of the convention is still one of exclusion.
- The Romney campaign hoped Ann Romney could quell the remaining concerns about the Hispanic vote, and it dispatched her to speak to a Hispanic audience Wednesday. While the party debated how to appeal to more Hispanics, Ann Romney told an audience here that the real problem lies with Hispanic voters, not with the GOP. “It really is a message that would resonate well if they could just get past some of their biases that have been there from the Democratic machines that have made us look like we don’t care about this community,” Romney told the Latino Coalition. “And that is not true. We very much care about you and your families and the opportunities that are there for you and your families.” According to NBC, Romney also ran afoul of her audience when she said of the Puerto Rican delegation, “You people know how to party.” “I did not think it was demeaning, but I did think it was a poor choice of words, and she should probably lose that from her vocabulary,” one attendee told NBC.
We could talk about other thing that happened during the convention, but this is so you understand that these events, as we mentioned last week, have no real reason to be celebrated, even more, AT OUR EXPENSE!!
Don’t believe everything you hear, evaluate, analyze and then decide….parties are no good, for anybody. Let’s see what next week’s other Circus brings to Charlotte. See you next week!
