The GOP has cancelled the scheduled Monday opening of its national convention in Tampa, Florida. As it turns out, Tampa seems to be in the clear. Looking at the projected Isaac storm track, it now appears the storm will be close to making landfall in the New Orleans to Gulfport area about prime time Tuesday night. All emergency services are really to give necessary help as soon as necessary. Last time there was a storm in this area, there were lots broken trees, so I needed to look for tree service near me to cope with storm damage.
What now? If the GOP goes ahead, the Democrats and the malignant media will blister them to try to make them look uncaring. It seems the GOP must go ahead Tuesday or possibly lose the whole convention. There is just too much at stake to risk damaging the chances of removing from office the worst president in American history. Our prayers must be not just for the people in the path of Isaac but for returning the country to governance that respects the Constitution.
One thing the GOP could do to thwart the criticism is turn part of the first day into a telethon of sorts to raise money for storm victims, assuming the storm actually does some damage. Silly idea? What if Isaac turns out to do a lot of damage? The press is already playing Isaac as the second coming of Katrina. They are loving every minute of this and anything that interrupts the GOP message because their guy has nothing.
What do you think the GOP Establishment will do? This calls for tactical thinking. What are the chances?
You can bet the Democrats will charge ahead with their convention, less than a week after Isaac’s landfall. And there will be crickets about their insensitivity.
The GOP convention must go on. RNC Chair Reince Priebus said so on the 23rd. He should stick with that.
