RNC announces first round of speakers to GOP convention

posted at 12:01 pm on August 6, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

The RNC and Republican convention organizers have announced some of the speakers for the Tampa event that starts three weeks from tomorrow — but not the most-watched slots.  The Tampa Bay Times picks up the scoop, although there aren’t any real surprises in the list:

Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Sen. John McCain and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice are among seven headline speakers announced today for the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

The first look at featured speakers also includes South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez.

The keynote speaker and others will be named closer to the Aug. 27-30 event, Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus said in announcing the headliners, whom he called “some of our party’s brightest stars, who have governed and led effectively and admirably in their respective roles.”

The Times notices the names not on the list, at least for now:

Noticeably absent from the headliner list are several VP contenders: former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.

Let me go out on a limb and predict that all of the above will speak at the convention.  The event takes place over four full days, with about six hours of speaking/presentation time each day.  Some of that will get eaten up by convention business and floor votes, video presentations, and so on.  That still leaves about three hours or more each day for speeches.  The released list could go one day and leave some time left over, let alone the other three days of the convention.

Buzzfeed thinks the short list of announced speakers means a few people have lost the Veepstakes:

It’s possible that this is misdirection or that any one of these notables could still be selected for Veep, but this certainly makes their selection less likely.

It’s a good point — but there were only a couple of interesting names on this list.  Kasich isn’t popular enough in Ohio to help anyway, and neither Haley or Martinez have been governor for long enough to be more than a high-risk choice.  Mike Huckabee all but declared himself out of electoral politics last year.  Not much can be gleaned in Veepstakes outcomes from these names.

The inclusion of Governor Scott was pro forma for a convention in a state with a Republican governor.  It would be bad manners not to invite Scott to speak.  So far, though, Scott has kept a low profile in Florida in connection to the Romney campaign, according to the Times, because of Scott’s low approval ratings in the state.  Democrats want desperately to tie Scott to Romney, but Scott’s been a good team player and avoided handing them any opportunities.  If that’s still a worry three weeks from now, Scott will probably speak early in the convention and outside of prime time — which would be a shame, because Scott is pretty good on the stump and will fire up Republicans.

We’ll know more about the rest of the invites later this month, perhaps after Romney selects his running mate.  Romney starts a bus tour this week, and the Tampa Bay Times suggested that it might be in part a platform for rolling out the Veepstakes winner.  I don’t believe that Romney will waste the opportunity to build enthusiasm and attention by announcing early, though.  I’m sticking by my prediction of either August 17th or 20th for that announcement.

Update: A few “why isn’t _____ on the list?” comments in the thread, so let me explain.  This is just the first batch of confirmed speakers; the final list will be much longer.  Some names, like Chris Christie, Scott Walker, Ron Paul, and Sarah Palin, will generate a lot of buzz on their own, so expect the convention organizers to hold off on those names and announce them individually.  For the rest of those national figures who might play into the Veepstakes or Romney’s former primary opponents, they can’t schedule them until Romney picks his running mate.

She is the only one with draw, except maybe Walker of WI or Rubio, because the press would work harder to neutralize their images and so make the public more aware of the event

Palin can pull them in on her own. The other two would be created by the MSM

Ron Paul worked his butt off to get Romney nominated so maybe they would reward him with a slot. Id expect his son to be allowed the mic instead – a lot safer

Cain delivers live wire speeches. I’d love to let him loose

I would also enoy seeing Jindal, if they let him write his own copy. He is coming across as the all American boy as he gains poise. He hasnt earned the rabid hatred of the Tea Party, for some reason, so he has opportunity to connect

Green eyed Lady on August 6, 2012 at 2:49 PM

Hello Green Eyed Lady, I just got around to reviewing the link you provided and just thought I’d ask HOLEY FLIPPING CRAP, ARE YOU ON DRUGS!?!?!

I’m not being sarcastic! I would really like to know if you have been mainlining heroin or smoking used cleaning rags from a biker bar bathroom stall?

Here’s one passage from the article you linked:

That candidate is Mitt Romney. He used his trademark MO on Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and there is evidence that he was behind the Cain attacks but his biggest smear campaign for the past 3 years has been against Gov. Palin.

Newsflash: Mitt Romney does not own, nor does he direct the editorial content for MSNBC (the source of 99.9% of anti-Palin propaganda).

Next passage:

We have Mark Halperin who wrote Game Change. He was also one of the first to report in Time that it was Romney staffers behind the leaks.

Wow… just… wow. You’re using Halperin/Game Change as your source for your Romney conspiracy theory?

How can you claim to be a Palin supporter and somehow not have heard of “Game Change”? That’s like a jew who has never heard of nazis, a black man who has never heard of the KKK… or a chicken who has never heard of Colonel Sanders.

Here’s some reading material on “Game Change”

Top 10 Lies of HBO’s ‘Game Change’ (not all of them, just the 10 biggest)
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2012/03/09/top-10-lies-game-change/

The money quote is at the bottom:

After the selection of Palin for the VP slot, McCain took the lead in national polls. It wasn’t until the economic collapse that the trend started to move the other way. The trend stayed in Obama’s favor due to the manner in which the McCain campaign handled that crisis. The decisions the campaign made did not inspire confidence in the American people, and they were not decisions made by Palin.

After months of research on this movie, this lie was certainly very telling to me. Never before has Schmidt’s motive for talking to the book’s authors and the makers of this movie been more clear. He is trying to absolve himself of responsibility for the bad decisions he (and the Wallaces) made and the campaign they ran.

Palin Aide: Don’t Believe ‘Game Change’

McCain Assails ‘Game Change’
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2012/03/05/mccain-finally-assails-game-change

I won’t watch it. I know it’s based on a book that’s totally unfair and untrue, especially to Sarah Palin. You know something, this guy [Mark Halperin] — he might as well have been a paid member of the Obama election campaign if you look at his coverage … he still is, he still is, he still is, I’m not making it up.

Sheesh… relying on “Game Change”, gimme a bloody break.

The rest of that article is, as I have pointed out to Steveangell, Danno and the usual gang of idiots, is the exact same bull____ that we have been hearing all week…from Senator Harry Reid.

Unnamed Romney staffers, unnamed McCain staffers, unnamed aides… you may as well just say that you’re been hearing all this crap from the sponge demons that live in your walls… because both sources are just as real.

In review: Sarah Palin says “Game Change” is all lies. Sarah Palin says she and Romney have a good relationship. Sarah Palin says she is thankful the GOP has a strong candidate in Romney.

But here you come along, saying “Oh no, in this one instance Halperin and Schmidt are telling the truth and Sarah Palin is the liar!”

With supporters like you, Sarah doesn’t need enemies.

The amjean Unit likes to suggest any female who isn’t in the Creepy Cult of Palin must be fat and ugly and never accomplished anything.
It’s done the same thing to me but I didn’t bother to defend myself (my career, my husband or my super hot looks). I just find it strange that the Nasty ‘Nista’s who claim to admire Palin especially because she’s a successful woman who speaks her mind engage in baseless attacks and insults against any women who dare to voice an opinion they don’t agree with.
As women the ‘Nistas expect us to either gush over everything Sarah says and does or keep our mouths shut and keep our opinions to ourselves. Somehow they’ve justified this logic as an advancement of womens causes. I expect that from liberals and I’ve come to expect it from the Creepy Cult of Palin.
