In the half-hour before Romney's speech, his supporters were gearing at their booth area for their big moment as Romney was slated to speak at 12:30pm.   They grabbed foam "mitts", noisemakers and signs and marched down to the ballroom where they expected Mitt Romney to give a "fight to the convention" speech.   Because security was so tight due to the Vice President's speech this morning, most headed into ballroom early and listened to Laura Ingraham's strong defense of conservative values in the face of a McCain nomination and introduction of Romney.   They had no idea what they were really going to hear.
