Here is the official lineup for the GOP convention. Ron Paul only gets a video for a few minutes. Notice all the fluff they have going on, including an Invocation by Rabbi Meir Soloveichik! What in the world is being 'invoked" Tuesday at 2pm is BEYOND my knowledge.

The conservative actress Janine Turner, star of the 1990s TV hit “Northern Exposure,” will speak on Tuesday evening, though not in prime time. (Bonus factoid: Mitt Romney strategist Stuart Stevens wrote a couple of “Northern Exposure” episodes, according to the Internet Movie Database.)

Yet, Ron Paul can't speak.

On Thursday, the Romneys’ youngest son, Craig, will address the delegates, just after former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and his wife, Callista, appear together.

Newt and his 'non-sick wife' and Romneys' kid will talk to the delegates. Yet, Ron Paul can't speak.

Even the Puerto Ricans have a voice in the GOP convention and Ron Paul can't speak? WTF! And before you go on the 'I'm Racist Rant' Yo SOY Boricua!

Even the wife of the Puerto Rican governor gets to speak, yet Ron Paul can't speak....

Also, someone please enlighten me as to what all of these 'invocations' are. I always thought that invocations were part of satanism and witchcraft.

Am I the only one who sees a whole bunch of people that should not be speaking and the one that still running as a nominee (Ron Paul) not speaking wrong?

Pretty disgusting if you ask me. Yet we still have people on the right and left defending the lies and corruption going on. Why the American people refuse to give a #e is beyond me.

I feel like "TPTB" (I really dislike using that phrase) are trying to get a rise out of Paul supporters, inciting some hatred for the establishment, by blatantly cheating a man out of his rightful place to speak.

"They" know that it will get a rise out of RP supporters, being cheated like this. One must ask, is the reason he is unable to speak, solely for the purpose of eliminating him as an opponent, or is there some other reason?

Just some food for thought.

What I really can't wait to see is what the wife of the Puerto Rican gov has to say that it is so important.

Btw, for those that do not know about gov Luis Fortuño

Luis Fortuno is not well known to most Americans, yet. But an intricate set of unique circumstances are likely to place Fortuno in a roll that will eventually make him a well known national Republican.

Fortuno is Puerto Rican and the first Republican to be elected Governor of Puerto Rico since 1969 and only the second elected since 1949. Prior to his rise to Governor of this American territory he served as one of only three Republicans to ever be elected to represent it in the U.S. Congress.

Also, we was given consideration as a VP

While Luis Fortuno did not even consider running for President in 2012, he may soon have to consider accepting the viced presidential nomination, and for good reason. Beyond his popularity among the citizens of Puerto Rica and his appeal to Hispanics outside of Puerto Rico, Fortuno is a Reagan Republican whose conservative thinking and record will have plenty of traction among Americans of all persuasions. Fortunostates that Reagan was “clear in what he envisioned, a party that is open to ideas, the free flow of ideas and goods and services”, and he has added that believes “we have to go back to those principles.

Occupation of Mr. Fortuño = Lawyer

I highly doubt Dr. Ron Paul will be elected...Myabe its just me, but I don't ever see any Pro RP commercials...Am I the only one? All I see are Mit Romney commercials, or news channels reporting about Romney...Maybe Its because I dont watch TV as much as everyone else. But I wouldnt doubt they are trying to make the country forget about him, because he talks about things that are completely different and true...I don't usually follow politics, but I really believe in Ron Paul
