On AUGUST 27, 2012 – AUGUST 30, 2012 at Tampa Bay Times Forum gathered and hosted 2,286 delegates and 2,125 alternate delegate from all 50 states, District of Columbia and five territories. The 2012 Republican National Convention with its theme “A Better Future” was finally convened and confirmed the candidacies ofas president and Paul Ryan as vice president.
During the convention, both candidates presented the package of governance to those who attended. Voters listened intently and carefully to speeches, discussions and deliberations and other agenda of the convention designed to gather votes for the candidates. Ideas, programs and plans discussed for betterment of America were all likened to a farmer’s grain harvest. The filled and unfilled grains were still mixed together. The separation and classification of the grains were left to done by the American voters.
The convention wrapped-up on August 30 and voters left the hall still with bothered minds as to what “A Better Future” the Romney-Paul ticket was talking about? What “A Better Future” for Americans is to be expected when as Adam C. Smith puts it ‘Cautious message of Mitt Romney's convention lacks bold moves’? How can the Romney-Ryan tandem rescue America’s economy from its present state of agony when RNC lacked the bold moves?
Voters left the convention having no clear understanding what it intends to do to improve America. Good ideas and plans for America voters could hardly remember or did not remember at all after three days of much speaking and talking. They only remember the thousands of red, white and blue balloons. What could such balloons do to the US economy and to the American people?
