The Republican parade is about to get rained on, as Tropical Storm Isaac will likely hit their National Convention this week.
According to Reince Priebus, the Republican National Committee chairman, "It is what it is," and there is nothing the GOP can do about the impending storm.
As reported by the Associated Press:
Nothing was certain Monday as the storm carved an unpredictable path toward the Gulf of Mexico, forcing planners to compress four days of events into three and otherwise improvise.
"Obviously we want to pray for anyone that's in the pathway of this storm," Priebus said Monday on NBC's "Today" show, "but the message is still the same: that all Americans deserve a better future and that this president ... didn't keep the promises he made in 2008."
The party hastily rewrote the convention script to present the extravaganza's prime rituals and headline speakers later in the week, and further changes were possible. Convention planners said Monday's speakers would be worked into the schedule later in the week.
The show must go on regardless of Tropical Storm Isaac touching down in the Florida panhandle. However we hope everyone remains as safe as possible.
