You may not have known this but the people who have contributed most to the success of the Republican Party in the last two years are not being invited to speak at the Republican National Convention on Monday-Thursday. Why are the most exciting and inspiring and most intelligent people being left out? Here is the list.
The grassroots resurgence and inspired base has not gotten that way because of many on the following list of scheduled speakers. As a matter of fact many of them owe there position to the very ones that are being left off the list.
Reince Priebus – Sharon Day – Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn – William Harris – Al Austin – Barbara Comstock (VA) – Tim Griffin (AR) – Mike Duncan – Zoraida Fonalledas – John Sununu – Governor Bob McDonnell – Senator John Hoeven – Rep. Marsha Blackburn – John Boehner – Rick Scott (FL) – Rand Paul (KY) – Various Speakers – Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA) – To Be Announced – Artur Davis and video – Senate Republican Candidate Ted Cruz (TX) – Musical Act – Governor Nikki Haley (SC) – Mike Huckabee – Mrs. Luce’ Vela Fortuno – Mrs. Ann Romney – Benediction by Sammy Rodriguez – Video – Janine Turner – Mayor Mia Love (Saratoga Springs, UT), U.S. congressional candidate – Rick Santorum – Segment to be announced – Senator Kelly Ayotte (NH), accompanied by Jack Gilchrist – Governor John Kasich (OH) – Video – Governor Mary Fallin (OK) – Video – Governor Bob McDonnell (VA), accompanied by Bev Gray – Governor Scott Walker (WI) – Video – Segment to be announced – Governor Bobby Jindal (LA) – Videos – Sher Valenzuela (small business owner, candidate for DE Lt. Governor) – Governor Susana Martinez (NM) – Video – Governor Chris Christie (NJ) – Paul Ryan – Mitt Romney – Senator Marco Rubio – Condoleezza Rice and John McCain.
If I chose to watch 5 videos, a musical act and listen to John McCain instead of Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann or Allan West I’d be crazy! So what are they afraid of at the RNC? What is Priebus and the committee thinking? Offending those in the middle, that he feels might not pull a lever for Mitt? I must say there are many very good people on the speakers list but not one of them has suffered the insults, stirred up the base or created a movement on a national level as much as Sarah Palin! Not one has shown more brilliant articulation through the debates, uncovering so thoughtfully the dishonesty of the left and the main stream media better than Newt Gingrich or the honor courage and bravery of Allen West to say nothing of the business savvy of Herman Cain and Donald Trump!
I say support these courageous spokespeople that have suffered more hate, personal attacks and ridicule by the left than any of the scheduled speakers. They have stood for our conservative causes and we should honor them. They have earned the right to be in the spotlight.
And that’s A Christian American Opinion
