It’s still too soon to tell with any comfort. But the latest forecast track for Hurricane Isaac is tending toward the west. This is good news for Tampa, and the Republican National Convention scheduled to start there Monday. But not such good news for the Florida Panhandle, Mobile, Biloxi, etc.
But even if Isaac doesn’t put in an appearance as an uninvited delegate to the convention, there will still be at least one windbag in town. Vice President, and Obama court jester, Joe Biden has scheduled a campaign appearance in Tampa on Monday. Past practice has been that members of the opposing party stayed clear of the other party’s convention. But apparently our rookie president has decided that this courtesy is for the other 99 percent.
The plan may well backfire. Republicans in Tampa shouldn’t have too big of a challenge putting out a more coherent message Monday than Biden does.
