Well this tricks my trigger…
However, rescheduling a national political convention could be difficult heading into Labor Day weekend. Hmmm…
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – The Republican National Convention scheduled in Tampa for late August would be among the casualties if the area were threatened then by a hurricane, Florida Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll said Wednesday.

Convenient hey?! Granted it’s Hurricane season BUT…
According to the Tampa Bay Times on May 20, 2012, they even had a drill for a nightmare scenario in Tampa: a hurricane swirling off Florida as delegates start to arrive here for the Republican National Convention:
How strong would it have to be to change the convention schedule or force a cancellation? What if it’s just a tropical storm? How about a major storm that makes landfall in another part of the state, redirecting personnel and resources? And who makes the final call on what to do?
The odds of a hurricane hitting the Tampa Bay area between Aug. 27-30, when the convention takes place, are mercifully slim — less than 1 percent, according to the National Weather Service. But officials are preparing for the worst, just in case.
So sorry liberals, I know you’ve been praying to the leftist Gods it would hit Tampa. At this point the eye will not. One of them spoke in this article:
And if the storm never hits?
“If I get criticized for evacuating people for a storm that veers off at the last minute, I’m fine with that,” he said.
But ARE you fine with that my Frienemies?
I leave you with this tidbit:
It’s more than a tabletop exercise, Koon said. Once officials learn the details of the storm planners have cooked up, they will stage a nearly full-scale response. Officials everywhere from Tallahassee to Miami will coordinate via phone and Skype and do just about everything short of dispatching rescue trucks.
