Finally: Romney’s the official Republican nominee for president

posted at 5:51 pm on August 28, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

TAMPA, Fla. — Dancing delegates proudly bedecked in military- and state-themed flare, hours of rules discussion and official rigmarole, and roll-calling the state delegations: It’s all good, ’cause it means we can officially stop calling Mitt Romney the “presumptive Republican nominee” now! Not that anyone was really bothering with that anymore anyhow, but hey, the proprieties must be observed. The delegates painted a typically colorful picture on the floor of the Tampa Bay Times Forum Tuesday afternoon — the classic Wisconsin cheeseheads and Texas cowboy hats were of course well-represented, and the excitement was palpable.

There was plenty of trepidation that the official nomination proceedings would end up with a full-on Ron Paulite-led floor fight on their hands, but nothing much came of it. After speeches from a string of dignitaries, officials, and Republican candidates, former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu was the lucky speaker who presided over the voice vote on the recent rule changes, during which the Ron Paul supporters definitely voiced their disgruntlement (“Point of order!”-chanting and so forth). After a few minutes, however, things settled back down, and besides some enthusiastic cheering whenever Ron Paul’s name was mentioned during the delegate count, the proceedings kept on going pretty much pro forma.

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona… each state had a representative speak briefly to affirm the support of their delegates for Mitt Romney (my personal favorite expression of state pride: “Idaho, the first to sue ObamaCare!”, heh). There were a few exceptions, with Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, etcetera actually having more delegates committed to Ron Paul (cue wild cheers), but after New Jersey’s turn came the “Over the top” alert indicating that Mitt Romney hit the 1,144 votes he needed to lock this thing up.

So, that’s the official nomination clinched — onward!

Update: Yep, Speaker Boehner just wrapped up the state roll call, and Mitt has more than plenty of delegates. “Shout” was the music selection of choice; celebrations ensued. Good times, good times.

If you think I’m going to believe Bob Beckel on much of ANYTHING then you are going to have to be waiting a long long time. Beckel swallows and regurgitates the liberal talking points CONSTANTLY on The Five at Five. He’s their token Democrat for a reason: he is totally wallowed in the liberal media and ideals.

Highlar on August 28, 2012 at 9:07 PM

It’s still amusing to hear the GOP pretend that everyone on the left is blocking job growth when the clear majority of high-growth companies in this country are started by progressives. You have to wonder where high pay job growth would come from otherwise.

bayam on August 28, 2012 at 9:14 PM

SWalker on August 28, 2012 at 7:55 PM

You keep using that word, as if pretending other conservatives that distrust Romney are o-plants will somehow work out for your head in the sand.

It won’t.

mythicknight on August 28, 2012 at 9:15 PM

These parts with the non-politician small business owners are some of the best parts: REAL people…with REAL businesses…suffering REAL problems due PRECISELY to Obama’s nonsensical economic ideals.

Highlar on August 28, 2012 at 9:15 PM

Whats up with Shep? He looks like the tan lady from NJ.

steel guy on August 28, 2012 at 9:18 PM

Oh, I like this commercial! They better get it on TV pronto!!! “I’m an American…not a bump in the road!”

Highlar on August 28, 2012 at 9:18 PM

I made a choice to immigrate to this country because of all of the opportunities. You, on the other hand, have not one favorable thing to say about this great country.

I don’t understand why you don’t leave.

JPeterman on August 28, 2012 at 9:05 PM

Why should I be the one to leave and not you? I’m the one who actually has principles and sides with limited government, the one who desires to see the Constitution upheld and supports those who believe the same, whereas you and yours side with those who increase the debt and deficit, engage in immoral interventionism, ignore the Constitution, infringe upon liberties, and grow government at every chance. Save the jingoism.

Rick Santorum giving a good speech now.

Highlar on August 28, 2012 at 9:22 PM

Hubby just commented that he’s enjoying the use of Zero’s own words, and the following debunking !!

Impressive stage, monistors, etc.

Santorum: back in dad’s day, the only benefit offered immigrants was FREEDOM !
Nice line.

pambi on August 28, 2012 at 9:23 PM

Hmm…well…it was starting out good. I like Santorum a lot…wanted him to win…but he’s just going off point from everyone else tonight.

Hey, the guy’s a POS but he’s good for a laugh. Especially now that he’s in meltdown mode. :)

Benedict Nelson on August 28, 2012 at 9:26 PM

Although I’ve been waiting for someone…ANYone on the political stage…to call this point into the light: President Obama rules like he is above the law! Way to go Santorum!!

Highlar on August 28, 2012 at 9:27 PM

Why is Santorum speaking now? The schedule I have said Ted Cruz is supposed to be on now.

NbyNW on August 28, 2012 at 9:28 PM

I don’t know why but Santorum just kind of annoys me. I agree with most of what he says but I just can’t take him.

steel guy on August 28, 2012 at 9:29 PM

NbyNW on August 28, 2012 at 9:28 PM

I haven’t seen Ted on the screen, tonight.
We see Rick now, Artur Davis next,
Ann just after the hour, then Christie.

pambi on August 28, 2012 at 9:31 PM

To me, Santorm’s speech going off message gives me some real hope that Christie was right when he said in an interview earlier that he was told they weren’t going to rope him in…he could give the speech HE wants to. I’ve got to remember to get some popcorn ready for later! :D

The schedule I have shows that order too, except for Santorum in Cruz’s spot. I’ll find something to do for five minutes….

NbyNW on August 28, 2012 at 9:34 PM

Santorum is still pissed off.

John the Libertarian on August 28, 2012 at 9:34 PM

Ted Cruz now! YAY!

It’s the most indifferent convention evah!

Even Huckabee was told there’d be no restrictions on any speeches, even HIS !
He raved about how willing and trusting the R/R campaign was about that.

Now Cruz is on :)

Highlar on August 28, 2012 at 9:36 PM

C’mon Cruz light my fire.

steel guy on August 28, 2012 at 9:37 PM

I will appreciate the fact that he will give us breathing room and that he seems like a decent man who loves his country. Right now, considering the options, that is enough for me.

kim roy on August 28, 2012 at 7:45 PM

Which is why all we ever get is breathing room during which there is geberal GOP capitulation to more statist solutions, more GOP accepting the lib terms of deabtem, and on and on. And IF Romney somehow wins, let’s see hbow that “hold his feet to the fire” crap works out. Let’s saee those fiery threats to not vote for Romney in 2016, but vote third party or write-in instead…or hope someone mounts a primary challenge to him. Then let’s see you wilt as soon as the same union-thug-type Mittbots start in with their “Do you want to split up the GOP and let the Commies win?!?!?!?!?!?!!?” LOL Beautiful. The wheel goes round and round.

ddrintn on August 28, 2012 at 9:38 PM

No matter what I’m seeing as the schedule, the ones that show up unexpectedly are real treats.

pambi on August 28, 2012 at 9:35 PM

Yeah, I remember hearing him talking about that too. It really IS trusting of the Romney/Ryan ticket to allow things like that. But it also shows how united everyone is in one single, solitary goal: voting out Obama and some conservatism into the Oval Office!

Ted Cruz is doing good…giving a bit of a fiery speech. :)

Highlar on August 28, 2012 at 9:42 PM

Ugh. Try that again, without the typos:

Let him get on board his magic blimp and fly away with the loads of money he’s collected from his followers.

Ronpaul would have had a stroke if he had actually had to spend that money campaigning. That’s his retirement account…and he’s got plans for that.

How many packs a day is Kelly Ayotte smoking?

Lawdawg86 on August 28, 2012 at 8:13 PM

She simply lost her voice.

She’s not only been out straight campaigning with and for Mitt, but in the past couple of weeks she’s been all over here in NH practically nonstop, holding Town Meetings with her constituents. Remember, August is the traditional Recess Month for the Congress Critters, and she had extra duty on her month off this year working for Team R.

Reagan added 230,000 civilian jobs to the government payrolls. That’s growing government. Reagan gratned amensty, and Reagan strongly embraced an interventionist foreign policy.

Damn straight he would get hammered.

I than promptly misspelled it wrong several more times, in fact never getting it spelled correctly either. For that I was promised a T-shirt, never got it though. Now they want to to buy one free, for $34.95, what? Do they think me stupid. Sure I can’t spell and have horrific grammar, but I’m not stupid. ; )

Which is saying the same thing. Oh-so-progressive Google was using the loophole to avoid paying US corporate taxes…the statutory rate of which is the second-highest among “industrialized” countries.

Yeah, that’s how, as our Attorney General here in New Hampshire, Ayotte managed to emerge as the State’s top Homicide Prosecutor, and how her “sobbing” (your stupid word, not mine) helped her get the first death sentence penalty issued in our State since the 1950s, in the case of a cold-blooded cop killer.

And it’s also how she got the murder convictions for the two home invasion killers of a couple of far-Left Dartmouth College Professors.

PS, Ron Paul IS God. By the way, in the entire history of the Libertarian Party, only once has their Presidential candidate garnered more than one half of one percent (0.5%) of the popular vote, and that happened 32 years ago. The Libertarian “candidate” for President that year got 1.1%, but that was only because he had an Evil Koch Brother on the ticket as his running mate.

I don’t care if she discovered the cure for cancer and threw 3 perfect games for the Red Sox in one season. She still sounds like she’s about to break into sobs at any moment.

She’s knocking it outta da park !
Proving they didn’t live ‘enchanted’ lives.
She’s having fun, and this is soo refreshing !
Standing ovations and some tears out there, too.
VERY nice !

Nice…no apologizing for being rich and making it on your own! Go Ann go!

Highlar on August 28, 2012 at 10:27 PM

I think she’s really hitting her stride now…and keeps getting better with each word!

I don’t know how many times you Mittler Youth thugs have to be schooled in basic logic. Here goes again:

A vote for Romney is a vote for Romney.

A vote for Obama is a vote for Obama.

A vote for neither is a vote for neither.

An Oldie from last month from another forum.

Let’s be clear.

If you are not supporting Romney for President – no matter your agreement or disagreement with any of his stands – you are supporting Barack Obama for re-election.

To be undecided is to be decided. It’s now at that point. If you have the ability to vote for Romney and you choose to not do so – you are supporting the reelection of Barack Obama.

If you are a citizen of this nation and you want the right to complain about it and are concerned about it remaining the beacon of liberty and freedom, then get off your ass and support Mitt Romney. The choice is the clearest in my 40 years of voting in Presidential elections. The current occupant is the hands down worst, most incompetent executive and I can match any concern and beat any other list. At least Carter’s damage was limited. The Obama/Holder disregard for the Constitutional Separation of Powers must come to an end.

Once again, Barack O’bama thanks you for your vote!

Are pambi and Highlar sockpuppets? LOL

Great line Ann!!!

Highlar on August 28, 2012 at 10:30 PM

What, I have to be a sockpuppet just because I’m enjoying hearing what she has to say? Guess you didn’t read the bit of criticism I first said about how she started out? What she’s saying now makes a lot of sense. And it does work to make Romney feel less aloof.

I don’t care who said it. It’s still bullshit. So tell me: if an OWSer votes for Nader rather than Obama, is that still a vote for Obama?

Mitt seems kind of robotic but the truth is he is a man with fears hopes and dreams just like anybody else. I think she is doing a good job of personalizing him which is what he needs right now
