With eye on weather, GOP convention to formally nominate Romney

Tampa, Florida (CNN) - A quest started five years ago reaches a major milestone Tuesday when Mitt Romney is formally nominated as the Republican presidential candidate to face President Barack Obama in November.

The roll call to nominate Romney highlights a packed first day of full proceedings at the storm-shortened Republican National Convention.

    Very PATHETIC guy. No wonder McCain said Sarah Palin is much better than this Bain Capital. Watch him on YouTube, when mitt Romney came to town...

    This has the potential for some unflattering optics. Republicans are all out partying in Tampa, while Americans lives are being completely turned upside down.

    It would be nice to hear Ron Paul getting some votes on the floor.

    You mean Romney started running against Obama before Obama was even elected? Five years is a long time to be interviewing for the same job especially when there was another candidate who had been selected (McCain) to be interviewed during that time. Is he that desperate? but nice intro TRY CNN – trying to make Romney sound heroric...almost proud American. Too bad he won't disclose his taxes to the American people.

    Mitt Romney cannot substantially change our lives for the better. All our ways reject God's wisdom. Restoring our economy and creating jobs only speeds extinction; young and old are already diseased. We are promoting debt, interest, insurance, seeking riches and honors and covetousness, all things God warned against. We do our young people no good by promoting glorified slavery we call employment; it is a bottomless pit that continually wants more from us. Only God's garden paradise lifestyle solves our problems and gives good health. The best Health Insurance, Romney Care and Medicare are not solutions, but obstacles. This should change the perception of Mitt Romney, President Obama, Ron Paul, and Socialist presidential candidates.
