In an age of GPS, cell phones, and other forms of instant information access, it is difficult to fathom how a professional bus driver finds it possible to remain lost for an hour in a city the size of Tampa. After all, the entire downtown area is only a few square miles! The frustration on the part of the delegates became apparent when some demanded to be dropped off in order to walk to the convention hall.
Speaker of the House John Boehner ruled the “ayes” won the voice vote on the proposed rules changes, a result which possibly could have been avoided had the Virginia delegation not been detained by the “lost bus.” These rules alter the structure of the Republican Party, by transferring power from grassroots activists to 100 RNC committeemen.
