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.

Not only that, but she’s basically dumped any future in elected office for her current status as rightwing media star. It’s kinda too late to go back now, this close to the election.

And would Romney even accept her in the first place? He’d be shown up daily on being conservative by a half-term runaway governor. His ego CANNOT take that.

My point is that she seems to have already burnt the bridge to any working relationship with Romney given her stance during the primary. She doesn’t need to speak at the convention and an invitation to do so would seem really weird on the part of the Romney campaign.

That would be a disaster. Palin is not viewed favorably by independents.

McDuck on August 6, 2012 at 12:45 PM

Yes, we still remember that Rasmussen poll from a year or so ago that claimed that 20% of all conservatives would vote for Obama’s re-election if Palin were the nominee, and another 10% were unsure if they’d pick Palin over Obama.

Of course, numbers like that suggest to me that 30% of all conservatives don’t really think that Obama’s all that bad.

Where do you get your news? Liberals-R-Us?

I just spent over 18 hours at our County Fair [last week] talking to voters, and I met ZERO who were excited about Romney, so I let them know that there would be one conservtive on the ballot if they wanted to cast a vote based on their convictions. That seemed to please them greatly.

After I win my election tomorrow I’ll be getting my invitation to attend our SWM TEA Party meeting of elected delegates, and I may well request to speak on my idea of how we can get unenthusiastic voters to the polls in November. I think they would be as interested as my local TEA Party members have been.

Pragmatic on August 6, 2012 at 1:23 PM

calling us Paul supporters petty when it’s the mittheads who want to keep re-fighting the primaries

Mocking Paul and his supporters isn’t “re-fighting” the primaries because Paul doesn’t put up a fight in the primaries in the first place. He’s a sideshow freak, not the main event.

Paul should be given a spot at the convention, and the first thing you do is make KKK references

abobo on August 6, 2012 at 12:24 PM

If Paul were just a racist and anti-semite, he would still have to be banned from the convention. Unfortunately, he is much worse.

In January of 2008, Herr Doktor Paul lied saying he would like the so-called “9/11 truthers” to shut up but he can’t make them. Nine months later, Herr Doktor Paul deliberately chose to put 9/11 truther Jesse Ventura on the stage at his they-didn’t-choose-me temper tantrum he called “Rally for the Republic”.

Four months later, Israel launched Operation Cast Lead when in response to a three year bombardment of heavy artillery rockets, , Herr Doktor Paul put up a youtube video where in he lied about Israels war efforts calling them “preemptive, preventative war”. He also falsely claimed Hamas had only “a few small missiles”.

There is nothing “preemptive” in returning fire after the enemy has shot at you more than 3,000 times in a single year. There is nothing “few” or “small” abut the 1000+ Qassam III rockets launched at Israel (each being six feet long, weighing 200 pounds and carrying a 20 high explosive warhead).

Ron Paul knowingly and willfully promotes the spreading of false anti-American propaganda and he lies on behalf of islamo-fascist terrorist groups. He is a an enemy/terrorist sympathizer and a traitor to his country. He should just join the democrats where they can dig up the corpse of KKK Imperial Wizard Robert Byrd and put it next to him so that Herr Doktor Paul can feel comfortable being with his own kind.

For the Ron Paul Supporters:

I’m sorry that thr Willard puppets are attacking you relentlessly and in such a filthy liberal fashion, but you scare them because they KNOW that you could go on to support Governor Gary Johnson this year and Romney has nothing to offer when comparing the records of both men.

Please do not let them cause you to stay home in November. DO get out and vote your convictions instead.

You’re right, she’s not the “nominee”….but she certainly is “the star of the show.” Obviously, you can’t accept that nor even wrap your little brain around it.
The main reason that Sarah is not being given a speaking spot, is 1976. The gope will NEVER have the delegates thinking that they’ve pick the wrong nominee ever again.

listens2glenn on August 6, 2012 at 1:35 PM

Some of you people are ignorant. Do you know what
a conservative stands for? If you don’t, I suggest you do your
research. If you do, how can you disparage Palin? If you don’t
stand for the same ideals she stands for than you are no
conservative. Your attacks against her define you as either
a liberal or a rino. Attacks against Palin are an assault
on all conservatives.

Palin has shone a spotlight on Obama’s socialist/marxist/communist drive to destroy this country. She has taken political risks,
outed both dems and repubs as to their elitist croney capitalism.
She actually has a record of doing this; she walks the walk.

This election is the last time I hold my nose and vote for a rino.
This election is the last time I vote as a republican; I will change to independent status. I withold my contributions as well.
Not one dime to the repub party.

I would like Palin to have a prominent speaking position at the
convention. Not because of Palin as I am sure she doesn’t care
one way or another. I have three reasons: 1) it would make me
feel slightly better about voting for Romney; I would like to think
he is not petty, that he would understand it would be proper/classy to invite the previous election’s VP candidate, 2) it would prove he has control of the Mittbotts, not the other way around; and 3) it would encourage conservatives to come out and vote because we need the votes to beat Obama.

So we can expect the ballot to look like (D), (R), (I), and (T) then, right? Newsflash… primaries are over… runoffs will be over. There won’t be a choice between an (R) and a (T).

DannoJyd on August 6, 2012 at 1:22 PM

Who is cowering in fear? Choose your party affiliation. People are going to educated themselves the way they see fit. This is a pretty simple choice now that we’ve seen almost 4 years of H&C with a promise of “more flexibility” if Prince Clown gets re-elected. The ABO vote will be large and people will ask themselves if they’re better off now. People don’t need to be convinced at this stage.

Go buy a newspaper. Then you can read all about the TEA Party candidates winning their general elections, many of whom got personal support from Sarah Palin.

I wonder where RINO Romney has been. I’ve yet to read about any of his candidates winning a thing.

Allowing ones self to be bogged down by a party affiliation is the first step in becomming one of the sheeple. Best to keep ones options open since the GOP is again pushing liberal RINO’s on We The People. That is why the number of independent voters has grown so dramatically.

Speaking personally, there is no hatchet to bury or olive branch that needs to be passed between Mitt Romney and myself. We have a good relationship and I have great respect for him and I am so thankful the GOP has a strong candidate who understands the private sector and what it takes to get the economy roaring again.
- Governor Sarah Palin

I applaud Governor Palin for her heartfelt endorsement of the strong candidate that the Republican party has selected to take back the White House. As well as both her and Governor Romney for the examples they have set of the family values that help make America great.

Really Mitt was your attack plan against Palin and thus her supporters really that smart?

Mitt has never attacked Sarah Palin. Governor Palin herself has said “there is no hatchet that needs to be buried or olive branch that needs to be passed“.

I, a faithful donor to the cause, have not given one cent to the RNC or Romney and I won’t. Neither will my husband.

Alberta_Patriot on August 6, 2012 at 2:21 PM

It is by now common knowledge that Romney’s surrogates were hired
by the McCain 2008 presidential campaign and that they tried
to destroy Palin. I have never heard such crapola against a candidate either before or since then. Nicolle Wallace and Steve
Schmidt, etc. What a pair of DBags!

It is also common knowledge that Romney’s surrogates were behind
the false rumours regarding Caine, the personal attacks on
Gingrich, etc. That’s how they roll; not too much better than
Obama’s Chicago tactics. However, they will probably need these tactics against the one. Some might say “good thing” that they
practiced on their own party.

Palin is thankful that Romney will work hard to get the economy
back on track. She is smart; she knows that without a strong
economy nothing else really matters. Other than that, she knows
what most of us thinking people know, Romney is a rino.

That said, Palin has said that she will support ABO. That is
Romney. I feel the same way.

The repubs will never see a dime of many conservative’s money again. And why should
they change my mind about that? No reason that I can see.

What were Romney’s scorched Earth tactics against Palin, again? Why would he have any need to do that, when she didn’t run in the first place?

changer1701 on August 6, 2012 at 2:25 PM

Here’s a little back story from 2008 to now…..

it shows clearly who have been pulling strings, and who have condoned the efforts of smearing and damaging Sarah Palin from the get-go.

“So just who is the culprit? Is it Team Romney? or is it Team Rove/Bush?”

“Well, it is both but it started with Team Romney. They started the attacks as early as the convention. It wasn’t until later on that Team Rove saw it as an avenue to also clear the path for Jeb.”

“Need some proof?”

The people from his failed campaign in 2008 started in on Palin immediately even though they were now part of Her and Mc’Cain’s campaign… they tried to anonymously attack her right after the loss whch prompted the Bear in the Woods video about him…Romney saw Palin as the end of his chance at the nomination so he tried to take her out… too bad he wasted all that effort as she didn’t even run and had been telling us all along she would not run…remember you don’t need a title to effect change?

Had Palin run she’d be the presumptive nominee right now and the excitement would be huge that the conservatives finallly had the chance to really fight Obama and his policies…Instead we got a notorious flip flopper, non principled, no conviction, ambitious politician who’ll do or say anythig to get elected, who is pro abortion and gay marriage and the grandfather of Obmacare thorugh Romneycare…I still can’t beleive the GOP RNC Elites screwed us this way…

So it’s more than obvious they don’t want a lot to change, they just want to be in charge so they can pay off their cronies with our tax dollars..

I don’t think Sarah Palin wants to be at that miserable convention… she made that pretty clear by renting out her own space…

From an article written on 10.27.08 at the American Spectator:


ROMNEY ANTI-PALIN

Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers, some of whom are currently working for Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin’s bid for the White House, have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election. “Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won’t be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,” says one former Romney aide, now working for McCain-Palin. “The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney. He’s in charge on November 5th.”

Romney not only allowed his people to attack Sarah, he also let them give 0bama the 2008 win so he could run this year.

changer1701 on August 6, 2012 at 3:49 PM

Well, no, Romney’s people have been nothing but swinish to Palin for the past three years.

Palin, for her part, has decided to sit back and wait and allow Romney to come to her.

Romney’s people, representing the Stupid Party, believed the Conservatives would have Nowhere to Go in November. Well, Romney’s people are Establishment GOP. Those people normally couldn’t beat Himmler in an Election for Mayor of Haifa, given the galactic nature of their stupidity. They basically expect the cons to come roaring out of the box because of the nature of Obama.

It’s a fool’s errand, and Obama will beat Romney like a drum if Romhey lays back and expects Con turnout as if he were the Second Coming of Reagan.

Romney needs Palin and Palin’s ability to turn out the Base. He’s only NOW coming to the conclusion that Reagan came to in June of the 1980 cycle when Reagan went about the business of burying the hatchet with the Moderates.

This is all of a piece of the Rockefeller/Goldwater story from the Cow Palace in 1964 that we’ve never been able to put to bed. Nixon was able to bridge the gap in 1960 and 1968, while Reagan was able to overcome by sheer force of personality and will. Romney is a moderate from the Rockefeller Wing who got the nomination by dint of money and negative ads. Everyone knows this. Now he has to run as a faux-conservative. He knows that the Movement People know that he’s a big phony.

That’s why he’ll need the laying on of hands from Palin. He’ll need Palin in the field for him, too.

What’s happening now is the outline of a deal between the two parties. Ignore the sniping you see between underlings like HA Posters and outside agitators like Bushtards who want Romney to fail because they want Jeb in 2016. Only look at what you see from Palin herself (who has been generous and conciliatory) and Romney (who hasn’t been trashing Palin as of late).

I”m not in Palin’s mind but IMO her words may have been good manners/being a team player. What would you expect her to say Romney is a bland AH RINO who should be cut off at the knees before he ruins the country and I’m just the gal to do it.? Sarah never told any of her supporters that they had to be in lockstep with her choices so I’m sure she’ll cope if some of her base doesn’t support Romney

And sorry but Romney does deserve the consequences pf the treatment dumped on Palin by others on his behalf. Didn’t Schmidt go to work for Romney? Ine has to think that Romney had no problem with Schmidt’s trashing of Palin – makes you wonder about his ability to judge someone’s character.

Why Palin should and will be invited to speak at the convention…….the Cheney’s.

What will happen if Palin is not invited is that every reporter on scene will ask every Republican where is Sarah Palin? Why isn’t she there? Should she have been allowed to speak? How many Republicans want to be in the position of answering those questions. What is the proper answer to those questions. McCain gets to speak but Palin doesn’t? Why?

Not inviting Palin will be a distraction from the conventions message. It will cause a LOT of stress and danger to every Republican there. Why not let her speak.

So pretend you are a Republican and answer why she doesn’t deserve being one of 27 speakers.

When do you think she’s going all Tiffany-Mall rat-because at that venue SHE will be the ‘star’ surround by her adoring fans who will gush over her and her absolutely ‘perfect conservatism’ and take digs at..you know…the guy who will be the actual nominee.
