What could be more important right now than hearing what Republicans have to say about where they would like to steer the country, should their party’s candidate, Mitt Romney, get elected in November? What is more important, in prime time TV in the dregs of summer, than broadcasting speeches proclaiming policy and guiding principles during the Republican convention in Tampa? Apparently, reruns of Castle and Hawaii Five-O.
Entertainment Weekly‘s Ken Tucker makes a great point by specifically reminding us what will be missed:
“Citizens watching the Big Three networks will now miss speeches from former Florida governor Jeb Bush and former Arkansas governor and Fox News show host Mike Huckabee. This is disgraceful. Jeb Bush is a once and future power within the party; not much has been heard from him about the Romney-Ryan ticket. Huckabee’s TV show has been one of the prime outlets for the discussion of Republican platform issues such as health care and budget strategies.”
