#GOP2012 final night: Get ready for Gingrich, Rubio, Eastwood and – of course – Romney

Posted by: ST on August 30, 2012 at 6:14 pm

It’s the last night – the biggest one of the GOP Convention, where Mitt Romney will formally accept the Republican nomination for President.  Here’s tonight’s line-up of speakers:

7 p.m.
• Convention convenes
• Call to order
• Introduction of Colors US Central Command Joint Forces Color Guard Team
• Pledge of Allegiance by Dylan Nonaka
• National Anthem sung by SEVEN
• Invocation by Ken and Priscilla Hutchins
• Remarks by U.S. Rep. Connie Mack (FL)
• Reagan Legacy Video
• Remarks by Newt and Callista Gingrich
• Remarks by Craig Romney


8 p.m.
• Remarks by Governor former Jeb Bush (FL)
• Remarks by Bob White, chairman of Romney for President campaign
• Remarks by Grant Bennett
• Remarks by Tom Stemberg

9 p.m.
• Remarks by former Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kerry Healey
• Remarks by Jane Edmonds, former Massachusetts Secretary of Workforce
• Remarks by Olympians Michael Eruzione, Derek Parra and Kim Rhode

10 p.m.
• Remarks by U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (FL)
• Remarks by presidential nominee Mitt Romney
• Benediction by Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan
• Speaker Boehner declares convention adjourned

Clint Eastwood is reportedly the “mystery guest” the GOP has been teasing all week, and will speak after 10. Perhaps before Rubio, or perhaps before Romney. It’s unclear.  Either way, if you can’t get to a TV you can watch it via News 14’s livestream.

Hopefully tonight will be as exciting and inspiring as the last two nights.  Condi Rice absolutely rocked the house last night – and it goes without saying that Paul Ryan did the same.  I’m feeling really good about Romney/Ryan’s chances going into the final stretch, but am also bracing myself for even worse from the Obama campaign than we’ve previously seen these last few months.  As I’ve written before, next week at the DNC will be a “War On Women” homage to abortion, and a hatefest towards so-called “patriarchal” Republicans, and it will not be a pretty sight. I just hope the people watching will be smart enough to see through it – or at least smart enough to question it.

Hey, a girl can dream – right?

    It should be a positive night. I am looking forward to it.

    Sister Toldjah said: “As I’ve written before, next week at the DNC will be a “War On Women” homage to abortion, and a hatefest towards so-called “patriarchal” Republicans, and it will not be a pretty sight.”

    Chick says: “… as well as a Left-wing media slug-fest comparing the ‘racist’ convention in Tampa versus the ‘inclusionism and moderation’ of Democrats as exemplified by MCNBC and NBC’s dismissal of minority voices in Tampa. In other words, “WE BROADCAST (our blatent bias), AND YOU DECIDE (based on our bias)!”

    OK. Got it. All 150 viewers may even get the message …

    Sharing the dream with you, ST. Obhammud is such an incessant and unconvincing liar the fact checkers will go into Chernobylesque meltdown trying to keep pace. Things not mentioned will be $16 trillion deficit, stimulus, Solyndra, Fast & Furious, the list goes on. And 150 viewers is such a paltry amount to be spread among all “57 states”. Maybe the number would be higher if subtitles in “the Austrian language” were provided, attendees used the “intercontinental railroad” to attend, and a medical staff or “corpsemen” were on hand.

    “Mitt Romney is going to raise more money than Barack Obama,” [Michael] Moore said. “That should guarantee his victory. I think people should start to practice the words ‘President Romney.’ To assume that the other side are just a bunch of ignoramuses who are supported by people who believe that Adam and Eve rode on dinosaurs 6,000 years ago is to completely misjudge the opposition.”

  5. Sefton says:

    I thought it was great night to close it out.
    Clint with the humorous digs on Obama’s failed promises and then pressing the point that the PEOPLE are the employers and when the employees fail, you kick ’em out. I also liked when he said maybe we oughta quit electing lawyers to be presidents.

    Rubio was a perfect cue up for Romney and had some great punches to the gut of this administration, especially highlighting the exceptionalism of our country and why we are the beacon of freedom loving people everywhere. Until lately, unfortunately.

    Romney did a very good job as well. Hit all the points that needed to be addressed, especially emphasizing the failures of this administration and how he and Ryan will get the country back on track. It was both inspiring and addressed key issues.

    As far as the DNC next week… they might as well just call that Lie Fest Central. Because that’s what they’re best at.

  6. Tex says:

    Clint was great! Already this morning the MSM are upset with him and many Hollywood elites are on record trashing him. You can sense the fear in them behind their insults. And Clint just sacrificed his chance for any more Oscars.

    Romney needs to keep the focus on Obama’s failed economic policies the next 3 months rather than letting Obama distract the public’s attention with personal attacks on Romney.
