RNC 2012: New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s Keynote Address (VIDEO)

Republican National Convention 2012

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie delivered the keynote address to the 2012 Republican National Convention Tuesday night in Tampa, Florida and certainly did not disappoint. While some were surprised he “toned it down” and refrained from directly attacking President Obama, my take away was a new respect for the outspoken governor as he clearly put the party ahead of his own personal ambitions. He could have stole the show by offering nothing but red meat. Instead, he chose to speak to independents, moderates, and undecideds – you know, the people that will most likely determine this election.

The next First Lady of the United States Ann Romney addressed the 2012 Republican National Convention Tuesday night in Tampa and wowed and at-home viewing audience of more than 20 million. She was tasked with the job of “humanizing” her husband. She succeeded and endeared herself to the American People in the process.

RNC 2012: Your Next Vice President Paul Ryan (VIDEO)

Vice President Paul Ryan

Congressman Paul Ryan took the stage at the 2012 Republican National Convention and officially took his place on the GOP Presidential Ticket tasked with challenging Obama-Biden in November. As first impressions go, I have to say Ryan handled himself rather well. I’ve been critical here of Ryan (superficially) as I tend to think the guy’s kinda nerdy. That said, I’m pleased to admit that Congressman Ryan made nerdy look kinda cool Wednesday night.

Marco Rubio to Introduce Mitt Romney at Convention

Mitt Romney Marco Rubio

Florida Senator Marco Rubio will introduce Governor Mitt Romney at this month’s Republican Convention in Tampa as the GOP candidate takes the stage to officially accept the Party’s nomination to challenge Barack Obama this November. Seen by most as the second most prestigious speaking slot at the convention, I can’t help but think that introducing Romney will be as big for Rubio as it will be for Romney. He’s young. He’s good looking. He’s charismatic. He knows how to deliver the red meat and he’s developed a delivery that can appeal far beyond those sitting in the seats at the convention.
