Paul did not get enough delegates to be given a speaking slot at the convention. This is the third time that Ron Paul, 76, has tried to win the office of president of the United States and the second time he has been denied the right to address the GOP's convention.

I call BS on this one.
RNC confirms Ron Paul will be up for nomination
For the past three days, Ben Swann (Fox19 Cincinnati) has been in contact with a Republican Rules Committee member. In order for a candidate to be elected for the Republican Party nomination, the candidate must have a plurality in five or more states. If by rule, binding and non-binding policies are applied to delegates, it would still not affect the process of voting for placement of a candidate's name into the potential nominee ballot. Presidential hopeful Ron Paul does have a plurality in five or more states (Nevada, Maine, Minnesota, Louisiana, and Iowa). This means that Ron Paul will be eligible for nomination on August 26th in Tampa Bay.

I think Romney and Republican elites will end up giving him some speaking time. I'm not sure if they'll truly adopt any of his ideas, but I'm sure they want the votes of his supporters. 15-20 minutes for Ron Paul to address the convention shouldn't be a problem for Romney & Co. If they deny him such a chance, that'd be intriguing.

If they do they're going to have a publicity #storm. The people will rise up and will have spoken. If they deny the people, they instantly become enemies of the Country, because We Are The Country.
