RNC Postponed! Reince Priebus Memo Here

DATE: August 25, 2012
FROM: RNC Chairman Reince Priebus @Reince
TO: Interested Parties
RE: RNC Convention

Due to the severe weather reports for the Tampa Bay area, the Republican National Convention will convene on Monday August 27th and immediately recess until Tuesday afternoon, August 28th, exact time to follow.

Our first priority is ensuring the safety of delegates, alternates, guests, members of the media attending the Republican National Convention, and citizens of the Tampa Bay area. RNC Convention officials and the Romney campaign are working closely with state, local and federal officials, as well as the Secret Service, to monitor Tropical Storm Isaac and preserve Florida's emergency management resources. Officials have predicted participants may encounter severe transportation difficulties due to sustained wind and rain.

The Republican National Convention will take place and officially nominate Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, and the Party has other necessary business it must address. We also are remaining in constant contact with state and federal officials and may make additional schedule alterations as needed.

The Convention staff is working around-the-clock to ensure the delegations housed in storm-impacted areas have alternative housing if needed. The Committee on Arrangements will provide additional information to delegates and alternate delegates who are affected by Isaac by Sunday morning. We will also provide guidance to those delegates and alternate delegates who may encounter travel difficulties due to the storm.

We will begin issuing revised convention programming as early as Sunday.

We have an experienced team that will ensure changes are operationally smooth and create as little disruption as possible. The most important concern is safety, but our Convention program will proceed.

"...the Republican National Convention will convene on Monday August 27th and immediately recess until Tuesday afternoon, August 28th, exact time to follow..."

What will they do in that time? Approve all the fascist rules with a partial convention present?

It's time to take the delegate strategy to the RNC

I'd like nothing more than a Ron Paul Quorum in the eye of the storm. Pathetic fallacy, well fallacy.

How are the delegates going to pay for a longer stay?

This is rough.

It is Illegal to Price Gouge Durring a Hurricane.

If any hotel increases it's pre scheduled post-convention prices due to delays caused by the Tropical Storm/Hurricane, it is a crime that must be reported. Gas, Food, ice, batteries and other life-sustainng emergency expenses are included in the price-gouging prohibition. Attorney General Pam Bondi urges Floridians to report any suspected price gouging during this declared State of Emergency by calling 1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-7226).

Galatians 5:1
It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Romney will pay

for the ones he wants to stay.
