More GOP Unity Signs

If you ever wanted to see an example of how inaccurate the conventional wisdom is, just look at how quickly the GOP is circling the wagons and unifying around Mitt Romney. Remember all the predictions that he’d have a tough time with his own party come November. NOT!

Rick Santorum, who emerged as Mitt Romney’s fiercest competitor for the Republican presidential nomination, will speak at the Republican National Convention, a senior GOP official tells CNN.

The former Pennsylvania senator is one of four Republicans including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, who will be announced Tuesday as primetime convention speakers. They join seven others who Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus announced Monday would address the convention.

Despite all the stories and supposed suspense here’s a prediction:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will be added to the roster, too.

And maybe (just maybe but less certain) Donald Trump.

The GOP will be unified against Barack Obama and energetically battle as a unified party go boot him from office.

As another bit of conventional wisdom bites the dust.
