The Republican Convention starts tomorrow. In a recent interview with Politico, Romney laid out part of the convention strategy, to make “the simple case to voters: Nice guy, failed president.” It will be interesting to see if it works, as the Romney campaign needs boost because much polls show him trailing the president.

Meanwhile, President Obama is looking to make inroads in Florida, a key swing state. He recently picked up the endorsement of former governor Charlie Crist. Crist will also be speaking at the Democrat Convention and may be joined, according to Big Government, by former Republican Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman.

Finally, during a speech on foreign policy at Ron Paul’s personal convention this weekend, Paul said: “Somebody… said the other day on the Internet, ‘if those Paul people had been in charge, Osama Bin Laden would still be alive. But you know what I think the answer is? So would the 3,000 people from 9/11, be alive!”

    Let me go out on a limb and state the obvious, taking my time and energy in full circle as when I entered this community, Ron Paul is a KOOK!

    Crist? Political prostitute. Nothing more.
    Huntsman? Man without a party. Having no political convictions has a funny way of making that happen. Perhaps he could get a spine implant?
    Paul? I know what he’s saying, but he’s wrong. I’m not sure that Muslim’s would care whether orur President was Ron Paul, Henry Winkler, or Mother Teresa. I’m pretty sure that they’ve made it clear enough. THEY HATE INFIDELS. End of story.

    Did anyone catch Romney on Fox News Sunday? Any thoughts?
    I thought it went a long way, at least in my opinion, to combat the general feeling that people can’t relate to him and he’s too stiff. I honestly see him in a different light than I did before the interview.

    I am so incredibly excited about the convention. I just hope that the hurricane doesn’t distract from it too much (and it doesn’t keep moving toward Houston and we don’t lose power during any of the primetime speeches).
    Crist is a joke and I think everyone in Florida knows it. As for Huntsman, is he still shocked why Republicans didn’t nominate him? No one knows him… and I’m sure the Democratic Convention won’t change that.
    As for Paul, he’s still the crazy old uncle of the party, but give credit where credit is due. He helped focus the party on fiscal issues and brought some good ideas to the table that the party has (slowly) embraced.

      Paul has a right to be nominated from the convention floor since his people followed the rules and has the delegates and states required for a nomination. The RNC pulling this stunt sickens me to no end.

        I think the right thing for you to do Troy is withhold your vote or vote third party because of this outrage and violation of “the rules” by the GOP.

        It would be absurd of you to cast a vote for a party that sickens you to no end.

        It is time for all the Libertarian Paulective to own their votes, completely remove themselves from the GOP and return themselves to the insignificance that comes along with being a third party fringe. The sooner the GOP can rid itself of this element the happier the GOP and the Libertarians will be.

          So, Brian. What do you think of the new rule? “…allow the GOP presidential candidate to veto and replace state delegates.” You know I’m not a “Ron Paul fanatic”, or whatever name you want to call them, but this rule is really stupid.

            What I think is that the GOP is in complete fear, and rightfully so, of the Paulective attempting to disrupt and make a mockery of the convention. I think the GOP is attempting to use any and all tactics possible to prevent the fringers from embarrassing the Republican Party on a national stage. Keeping the birthers/truthers as far away from a national televised GOP event is what seems to be at play

              The RNC is in complete fear, and rightfully so, because the Ron Paul delegates were elected by following the RNC rules and they knew that meant Paul’s name would be legally nominated from the floor. The RNC establishment didn’t like the idea of them losing power to a group that would push for returning to the Constitution.

        I think securing delegates is a completely ridiculous process.

        Why do we even have primaries if the guy who was pretty consistently toward the bottom of the popular vote (only won once in the Virign Islands) can gather enough delegates to win the nomination after the primaries have been held? Thats what would absolutely sicken me to no end.

        If delegates are up for grabs, and ultimately make the final decision regardless of who their district voted for, then why spend tens of million dollars letting the rest of us vote? That’s just absurd.
