The media is a buzz as to who Thursday’s mystery speaker at the Republican National Convention might be. Some say Sarah Palin, General David Petraeus or maybe Nancy Reagan. How about VP Ryan’s mom Betty? Could there be a Ron Paul sighting? That would be kind of awesome to have Nancy appear and use her famous line from the 1980′s … Just Say No to Obama.
Republican convention planners appear to have a surprise planned for those tuning in Thursday night.
Buried deep in the convention schedule released Monday is a vague reference to a mystery speaker scheduled for the event’s final evening. “To Be Announced” has a prime speaking slot late in the Thursday program.
Who do you think it might be?

Tropical Storm ISAAC Public Advisory
Tropical Storm Isaac about to become a hurricane as it crosses the Florida Keys and enters the Gulf of Mexico. As reported at ABC News, Isaac is expected to make landfall somewhere along the Gulf Coast by Tuesday or Wednesday, on the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. However, Isaac does not appear to be as powerful as the devastating Katrina that reeked havoc on New Orleans, Louisiana and the Gulf Coast. Isaac has made the planner of the Republican National Convention cancel the first day of the event on Monday.
Tropical Storm Isaac barely stirred some Florida Keys residents from their fabled nonchalance Sunday, while the Gulf Coast braced for the possibility that the sprawling storm will strengthen into a dangerous hurricane by the time it makes landfall there.
Isaac was expected to cross the Keys by late afternoon, then turn northwest and strike as a Category 2 hurricane somewhere between the New Orleans area to the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
The storm was predicted to pass west of Tampa, the site of the Republican National Convention, but it had already disrupted the schedule there because of the likelihood of heavy rain and strong winds.
Even before reaching hurricane strength, Isaac caused considerable inconvenience, with hundreds of flights canceled at airports in Miami and Fort Lauderdale. There were scattered power outages from Key West to Fort Lauderdale affecting more than 6,000 customers, and flooding occurred in low-lying areas.
Florida Governor Scott Brown says that Florida is preparing for Isaac. The Florida Keys are going to be hot with tropical force wind and rain. Brown stated that he has canceled his plans to attend the Republican National Convention on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday to deal with issues for the state of Florida and the potential for Isaac to turn into a hurricane.
Barack Obama, Lost in Smallness …
One might think that the below ad is a spoof from Saturday Night Live. Sadly, it is not. The RNC has come out with an ad of President Barack Obama for avoiding the White House Press corps. It has been over two months since Obama have taken serious questions during a White House presser, but that has not stopped him from doing some of the most “lost in smallness” interviews ever.
The Republican National Convention has released a scathing new ad, blasting President Obama for seemingly avoiding the White House Press Corps while doing interviews with soft outlets like “People” magazine and “Entertainment Tonight.”
Serious Questions from the RNC
Why would Obama have a presser with the White House Press corps? Instead of being asked about his favorite color, the Obamamessiah might actually be asked questions about the tensions with Iran, the deadliest month in 2012 in Afghanistan for US troops, the escalating gas prices, and of course the big one … where are the jobs?
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to Deliver Key Note Speech at Republican National Convention … Senator Marco Rubio (FL-R) to Introduce Mitt Romney
Sarah Palin may not be speaking at this years Republican National Convention, but don’t miss the sure fire, energetic, engaging and never dull stylings of Chris Christie. The NJ Gov. is never at a loss for words, this should be truly inspiring and entertaining.
That is correct, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will be providing the Keynote speech at the Republican National Convention. This is a fantastic choice as he is sure to bring down the house. Chris Christie is never at a loss for words and is known for saying exactly what he thinks. A quite refreshing manner as compared to the PC and focus group approved talk that has become common place for politicians today. Look for Christie to bring the crowds at the GOP National Convention to their feet and jazz the even to new highs. This is going to be must see TV. Christie stated, he “ill cite his experience as New Jersey governor in demonstrating that “the American people are ready to confront those problems head-on and endure some sacrifice.”
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will deliver the keynote address that launches the Republican National Convention in two weeks, telling USA TODAY he plans to make an “emphatic” argument on behalf of GOP approaches and shared sacrifice to face the nation’s biggest challenges.
In an interview Monday, Christie said his 20-minute speech will focus more on making the case for electing Mitt Romney than the one against re-electing President Obama. And he promises the words will be his own: He’s already on the fourth draft of the speech, “grinding away on it” over the past few days since Romney asked him to fill the high-profile role.
Florida US Senator Marco Rubio will be the individual tapped to introduce Mitt Romney at the Republican National Convention.
In a showcase role on his party’s biggest stage, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio will introduce Mitt Romney for his speech to accept the nomination for president on the last night of the Republican National Convention.
It is an introduction aimed at giving Romney a boost from a rising star in a must-win state, but it will almost certainly further enhance Rubio’s standing, too.
Republican Chairman Reince Priebus Calls Harry Reid a “Dirty Liar” in Response to Dingy Harry’s Tax Accusations (Video)
This weekend on ABC News ‘This Week.’ the Republican Chairman Reince Priebus called Democrat Majority Leader Harry Reid a “Dirty Liar”. The comment was made in response to Reid’s shameful and unsubstantiated comments that Mitt Romney had not paid taxes in the last 10 years. This is what it has come to for Democrats. They cannot run on the number one issue in America, the economy, so they look to divert and distract with nonsense and silliness. Barack Obama cannot run on his record so Democrats must lower themselves and just throw out accusations with no proof. Sadly, they don’t even care to find out whether such accusations are truthful or not. In 2008 Barack Obama ran as the candidate of hope and change and who would change the way business is done in Washington, DC. Four years later, Obama is running one of the most negative campaigns through his campaign, minions and surrogates.
Previously, Romney told Harry Reid that “it’s time to put up or shut up”. I wonder how willing Reid would be to produce his tax returns? Better yet, I wonder how Reid would act and respond if some one said something damning about him through an unnamed and unknown source?
