This "columnist" doesn't have any insight into the conventions. She's writing so carefully as to not ruffle any feathers on either side. Pathetic . No one had to tell me she is from San Francisco! townhall is a complete waste on my valuable time. Time better spent at authentic conservative sites!!!!

Read Derek Hunter....you'll change your mind...unless you're not really conservative...which is what I suspect.

Tampa, Fla., was like the Republican National Convention delegation -- older, more experienced, less excitable. Tampa has hosted the Super Bowl; the city had lots of space and nothing to prove. There was a been there/done that feel to the entire affair. Tampa Bay is used to welcoming visitors and has plenty of nice hotels to host them.

You say a hurricane is coming? No worries. They laid out some sandbags, closed up for a night and started up a day later. No need to rush a convention. People don't come to Florida to be in a hurry.
