GOP Convention is in Tampa, I want to move.

Posted by Enkill_Eridos on May 13, 2010

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY (Bay News 9) — After two previous attempts to lure the Republican convention, Tampa appears to have struck Republican gold for 2012.

GOP officials notified city leaders Wednesday afternoon that Tampa is their top pick to host the 2012 committee. The city beat out Salt Lake City and Phoenix for the event.

Tampa had been a finalist for the convention in 2004 and 2008. In 2004 they lost to New York City and in 2008 they lost to Minneapolis/St. Paul.

The selection committee’s recommendation will still need formal approval from the full Republican National Committee in August. Officials emphasized that committee members could surprise the GOP with another choice – but that appears unlikely.

Members of the Republican National Committee toured Tampa in March.

Officials checked out the St. Pete Times Forum and the Channelside District in addition to touring other areas of Tampa and Clearwater and St. Petersburg.

Committee members also were treated to a rally in support of the event.

Officials said the convention could bring 40,000 to 50,000 people to Tampa and as much as $175 million in revenue.

D.T. Minich, the executive director of Visit St. Pete/Clearwater, believes Pinellas County would benefit, too.

“Every major hotel has a block of rooms set aside for this convention,” Minich said. “This convention is really the equivalent of three Super Bowls. That’s how big it is.”
I really don’t want to move because the GOP Convention. I want to move because where the GOP Convention goes so does the retards of the Republican Party..otherwise known as the Tea Party movement. I don’t care about the GOP Convention. It will create jobs in the Tampa Bay area, but the surrounding counties are going to have to deal with the retards of the Republican Party and I just don’t have the patience. Usually I would debate with these people get them to where they just go well…well…you’re wrong and they walk away thinking they won. Lately I feel that life is too short to deal with those people in person. I am starting to dread 2012.

    what? you don’t want to watch the spectacle? sorry, e_e, the rnc chose to nest in your neck of the woods..


  2. Florida is a big Tea Party state without the GOP Convention. The thing I am worried about is if Sarah Palin wins. Then I know the world will end in a horrible way. If we though Bush was a bad decision. Sarah Paling would be way worse than Bush.

    well, it’s written in the bible. mayan menstrual cycles. king tut’s daddy. god’s not breeding all those giant pythons in the everglades for nothing. not to mention all those crazy evangelicals in pinellas county. jeez.


  4. You forgot about Manatee County..I think that County is a majority retard..I mean Tea Party..After I am done moving I am going to post about the Controversy of the Arizona Immigration Law. Which in fact I don’t support. This is not because it is a GOP pushed issue. But because it does allow “racial profiling”. Of course I hope that the Human race just destroys each other already. I don’t want to live in a world where we ignorantly call other Human Beings different races because of creed, skin color, or ethnic background. I think this is why Conservative Christians do not recognize Science. Because Science dictates that a human being is a human being regardless of skin color, creed, or ethnic background.

    i didn’t mention manatee because that is where i live and i’m in denial that such a place could even exist.

    manatee county has a problem of biblical proportion. i would have never survived had i not had my 4th kind of experience.

    Then you will like the next article that will talk about how and when I think America’s government stopped being a democracy (i.e. For the People, By the People, With every decision made with the best interest of the people in mind.) and how I think we as the citizens should take back our own government from the greedy corporations and special interest groups. When I turn 36 I will be the first average joe to actually try and run for president, using government grants and donations from individuals but no donations from people who are linked to special interest groups will be accepted. Because not only the rich should be able to run. Not only the Law School Graduates should be able to run for President. It is my constitutional right as a citizen of the United States to be granted the opportunity to run for President. In my next article I will be addressing the reasons why a President should not favor a particular party. A president should make absolutely sure that every decision that the senate and the house makes is in the best interests of the citizens every politician SERVES. This government was created by the People, and For the People. I don’t want to give anything else away.
