Last night Romney entered the convention in presidential State of the Union form, walking down the isle from the back, shaking hands, and addressing people as he approached the front. What was not seen were the stage modifications being made as he bought extra time, he made the most of what he had turning a problem into an advantage.
He spoke about Obama’s problems later when addressing America: “You know, there’s something wrong with the kind of job he’s done as president when the best feeling you had was the day you voted for him.” Later he continued: “In America we celebrate success, we don’t apologize for success.”
After the balloons fell in Florida Romney left for New Orleans after it was hit by Isaac. Jindal cancelled his role in the convention as did others, and Romney will be skipping a campaign event today.
UPDATE: Daily Mail: “President Barack Obama was today forced to announce he will fly to storm-hit Louisiana on Monday – hours after Mitt Romney beat him to the punch by deciding to head there this afternoon.”
Remember Katrina and Joplin?
