Perhaps it’s too early to worry about this. After all, I don’t think any of the other GOP Presidential contenders have gotten invites to the GOP convention either…but, then again, Governor Palin should be an exception.
She was the GOP’s VP candidate in the last election, for crying out loud! She DESERVES a prime-time spot on the dais. Sure, the mainstream media and GOPe have tried to demonize her over the last 4 years, but she is still quite relevant, despite attempts to suggest otherwise. Her acceptance by the Tea Party is unquestioned and she still has the ability to galvanize the grassroots in ways that Romney can only dream of.
I keep hearing people say that we need to unify around our presumptive candidate. I say BULLSHIT! Romney needs to reach out to Governor Palin, have a face-to-face conversation, and offer her a prime spot during the Convention. In that conversation, Governor Palin needs to be given assurances that the Tea Party’s issues will be front and center in Romney’s campaign and governing agenda. If that doesn’t happen, I know an awful lot of people that are going to invest their time to help Congressional and Senate candidates this fall. Oh sure, they MIGHT hold their nose and vote for Romney, but they sure as heck aren’t going to campaign for him.
I know you agree with me and certain others do too.

Thankfully, Mitt Romney is starting to show some cajones in a recent speech in Pennsylvania, highlighted by Mark Levin. Me thinks he just might be angling to be put in good graces with us, the grassroots and, by extension, Governor Sarah Palin.
