In this press conference, the GOP clearly spells out its priorities. Thankfully, they do at least mention that every one should be safe first and the concern should be for human life before convention schedule.

Good for them that they are going forward, but we are more concerned about the lives of those in the way of the hurricane than petty attacks our our President. We are praying for everyone in New Orleans and surrounding areas for safety.
