Priebus: No one’s been invited to speak at the GOP convention yet

posted at 12:01 pm on July 19, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Has Sarah Palin been snubbed by the RNC?  Did Chris Christie get inked into the keynote slot to start the Republican convention?  Hold your horses, GOP chair Reince Priebus told Chris Stigall on CBS radio in Philadelphia this morning.  As of right now, no one’s been invited to do anything — and the schedule won’t even begin to be addressed for another two or three weeks:

STIGALL: How much of that convention are you involved with, and who calls the shots?  And the reason I ask is, there’s this big deal right now about whether Sarah Palin’s been invited by Mitt Romney to speak, that Chris Christie — we haven’t talked about that yet this morning — has been named keynote on Tuesday to speak.  Can you talk about people speaking, who’s invited, who’s not, who’s in charge?  How’s that work?

PRIEBUS: [laughs] Well, I can tell you how that works.  I mean, it’s generally a very cooperative effort between the RNC and Mitt Romney. So, between their campaign and us, most things are like a 50/50 marriage.  I mean, that’s how I would describe decisions at the convention.  There’s also another component, which is the host committee in Tampa.  So both conventions have a group of people who are charged with the responsibility of raising all the money in a 501(c)3 charitable organization that actually raises the money so that the conventions can be put on.  We actually are charged with spending the money, and then we put on the program and all of the other things that you see  at the convention.  Those decisions of programming and putting all of these things together — they’re generally made by both entities.

And so, to your question now, there is no program set by us or the Romney team.  So most of these things you hear — although these are great people you’re referring to — all these things are just rumors.  I mean, there’s just no truth to the fact that people are getting phone calls and being invited to speak right now, because the program isn’t set.  So, when you guys hear things like that, you can generally assume that it’s just talk, and there still is time for –

STIGALL: So you cannot — so you’re saying that it is not confirmed that Chris Christie is the keynote speaker of this convention?

PRIEBUS: No, I don’t think anything’s confirmed right now.  I think that’s just rumor.  Now, I mean, Chris Christie is a key guy, but I can’t tell you that there’s a confirmation that he’s speaking on Tuesday night.  I think these are decisions that, you know, us and Team Romney are going to be making over the next few weeks.

STIGALL: On that, then there’s also no truth to “Sarah Palin is not welcome at the convention”?

PRIEBUS: Of course not!

STIGALL: Okay. Do you anticipate she’ll be there, if you were to guess?

PRIEBUS: You know, I have no idea.  I have no idea based on the schedule, based on what’s going on on programming.  I just don’t know what to tell you about it, other than it’s pretty early.  I mean, these are not — these are things that people will start making final decisions on probably, you know, in the second week of August.

In other words, if your favorite politico hasn’t received a speaking slot yet … relax. 

Update: Also, as a reminder, Rick Santorum — who will certainly be given a speaking slot — told ABC this week that he hadn’t received his invitation, either.  Consider that another data point in the argument that nothing has yet been decided.

Sherry…if he knew…then, why did he lie?

kingsjester on July 19, 2012 at 3:54 PM

King, because he works in politics. Is the list complete? Probably not. Do they have their keynote speakers in place? I would think so. Is the list flexible? Of course. IF Christie is slotted for keynote and IF Christie steps in it big time in the next few weeks,he will have to be removed.

So did he lie? No, he just spoke in political-ese.

The problem with that comparison is one assertion is an objective historical fact – i.e. she did quit her job.

whatcat on July 19, 2012 at 4:30 PM

There’s a tremendous gap between “quit their job” and “disgraceful resignation”, which were the words used by the erstwhile dips**t above. So, while your statement may be historical fact, it was not at issue.

You, me and everyone else on this planet knows the real reason why Palin will never get a speaking spot…….1976.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-p-Nuu8hYQ

There’s no way in heck that Mitt and the gope will ever have the delegates thinking they nominated the wrong person.

tencole

Do you have to fight truthers and kos kids for tin foil at the supermarket?

Are we going to have a daily Palin thread from now until the convention?

OmahaConservative

If so, I hope the cultists have stocked up on Jergens, otherwise there’s going to be a lot of chafing.

Well, she is a woman. That might really explain a lot of it.

Buckshot Bill

You got to love it when Republicans make left wing arguments. What’s next, claiming we don’t like Obama because he’s black?

On that note, if she doesn’t get a slot at the rino-con, Palin should definitely give her own speech at her real convention, and show what a real conservative nominee would sound like.

Buckshot Bill

If she wanted to be the star of the show, she should have gotten into the race and won the primary. Then she could show us what a real conservative nominee sounds like in a way that matters.

Oh, yeahm he’s well on the road of doing just that. When he stated that “Papa John built Papa John’s pizza…”, between the 2 morons its clear both can only survive with Teleprompters.

riddick

Speaking of morons….

She’ll be there, obviously, but I don’t think she’ll do anything that would be seen as competition or trying to split the GOP. She wants Obama gone.

INC

And you’re right. Luckily Palin has more sense than many of her followers.

I think the antipathy to Palin is something deeper. It doesn’t seem tactical to me. It’s emotional.

BoxHead1

Riiiiight…..but the blind hero worship of all things Palin is based on logic, and common sense. Pffft.

It would be stupid and suicidal to snub Sarah Palin and thereby piss off a large portion of the base.

Say, are you aware that one common nickname for the GOP is in fact “the Stupid Party?”

katy the mean old lady on July 19, 2012 at 4:09 PM

Worked up? Give me a break. There is nothing in my comment to suggest being “worked up.” It is the Republican National Convention. The Republican candidate for president will be officially nominated there. His name is Mitt Romney. The people invited to speak will be there to endorse Mitt Romney. That is the purpose of the convention. Sarah Palin doesn’t seem interested in doing that, so far. Is this convention-y stuff really news to some folks?

We have the right direction for the country, no need to hide from it. Moderates by definition can’t make up their mind, but they have to. Maybe you still need to be convinced. You may not like the way Sarah says things, but Mitt is sounding more like her every day. By the time the convention gets here, the endorsement may be ringing.

g2825m on July 19, 2012 at 5:14 PM

I want to 100% agree with those that have said that even though no OFFICIAL invitations have been sent out and the FINAL SCHEDULE hasn’t been done yet, it is laughable that PRELIMINARY discussions with politicians have not already been done with every probable speaker.

Palin knows when she had those discussions last time in 2008. Palin has likely talked with other politicians this time as to whether they have been asked yet. And she knows Romney wasn’t planning on letting her speak cause she wasn’t asked.

And their plans have blown up in their face.

You know that Romney (or any president, say a President Palin) won’t be able to sit down in the oval office and simply “declare” Odumbocare repealed, right?

RedCrow on July 19, 2012 at 5:09 PM

ROFL…see my comment above. They’ve started early. B-b-b-but Mitt PROMISED that on Day One ™ he’d repeal or something! His ‘bots told me so!

Most of the Moby’s that blew in from the pre-announced Jan double open registration have gotten the boot, only a few pop up every now and then to try to stir up trouble.

Heck, I’ve been here since November 2008, have changed my opinions only slightly, and since a bunch of the ‘Bot Squad rolled in during the 2 open registrations have been called a Moby regularly.

I’m a PITA because deep down you know I’m right. “Against the GOP nominee beating Obama”? No. I’m just telling you a simple fact of existence, and that is: you nominate a squish, you lose.

But at least we got THREE threads that are 4+ pages long about someone that clearly no one cares about maybe not getting an invite. So there’s that.

ddrintn…I may be a “Bot” to you, who knows, but I have always predicted that Romney will by 5-7%. Obama is NOT going to be currying all those votes he did last time from all the so-called Special interest groups…

He also just revealed himself AGAIN on who he truly is and I believe this time people will see it because early on in his administration they WANTED to give him the benefit of the doubt but after 3 1/2 yrs with a track record they realize “Rush is right” that “I hope he fails” should have been followed. :o)

I’ve been here since 2006 when Hotair first started and I’m still optimistic in spite of those of you that dwell on the negative. It’s almost as if you want to dampen someone spirits just because you can. Are you from Vermont?

g2825m on July 19, 2012 at 5:32 PM

A 5-7% win by Romney would probably mean he gets 300+ electoral votes. Sorry, that’s just not happening,

Watch and see, my friend! at LEAST a win by 5% The tidal wave will start from the East Coast and work its way westward so that by the time you get to states like Iowa, CO, NV, etc that Obama would think he’ll win the western half of the country will see the wave coming and vote along with the wave. :o)

I have a suggestion for you. Go back in the archives here from January 2008 on and compare the editorial stance here toward John McCain with the stance toward Romney now. This advertises itself as a conservative site, not as MittRomneyCentral II or The Voice of the GOPe.

ddrintn on July 19, 2012 at 5:51 PM

This hero worship of Romney has to stop. Its like a cult or something. St. Mitt the Victimized and his congregation of blind followers needs to be de-programmed.

SparkPlug on July 19, 2012 at 4:41 PM

Off with your head, you moron…you should be ashamed of yourself, using Mitt Romney’s name in vain…thou ought to lose thine headith.

And when Mitt gets his own world…you will regret what you have said as you slave for his glory, oh man of little faith.

Good thing, too, given that his parents saddled him with such an awful name.
