A guide to the Tampa Convention and subsequent campaign:
The Convention outcome:
Mitt Romney is nominated because
the GOP (Greedy Old Party) has found and embraced the wealthiest person ever to run
for President on its ticket - - though former rival New Gingrich's anti-Romney ads during the primaries documented that much of that wealth had been made at the
expense of other people.
Paul Ryan is nominated
because he is the architect of a budget plan that keeps the tax code
working to protect and enhance the Romney niche wealth - - again at the expense of other people.
The Campaign strategy:
the nominations, with the help of Super PAC's and the Citizens United
decision, Republicans will spend about a half-billion dollars convincing
all the other people that Romney and Ryan are working for them.
will count on the power of wealth already disproportionately showered
by the tax code on the 1% to achieve the unabashed commercial
flim-flamming of the electorate - - greased by swing-state voter
suppression laws - - in the most cynical and corrupt political
act in American history.
