'Radio Rose' Interviews Notable Names at Republican National Convention

The Peters Township resident spoke with Michele Bachmann, Jon Voight, Rick Santorum, Pat Boone, Herman Cain, Mike Huckabee and Dinesh D'Souza—just to name a few.

Rose Tennent, also known as "Radio Rose" of The War Room with Quinn and Rose, had the opportunity to interview key players at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL last week.

Having quite the resume, the resident said the experience was unlike anything she's done before. Tennent often appears on The Sean Hannity Show—both as a guest and, at times, in Hannity's place on his radio segment. 

During her time at the RNC, she interviewed CL Bryant, Herman Cain, Artur Davis, Michele Bachmann, Dinesh D’Souza, Jon Voight, Pat Boone, Rick Santorum, Ken Blackwell, Mike Huckabee, Keith Rothfus and Marsha Blackburn. 

As Tennent reflected on the week's happenings, she shared the event was planned more than a year and a half ago and took 318 production staff members, as well as 30,000 man hours to complete.

According to the GOP committee, the crew members hailed from 22 different states and worked 16-hour days before the RNC and around the clock during. The planning committee wanted to recreate a sense of "America's living room," which Tennent described as "cozy and comfortable—a great feel."

She also shared that mainstream TV originally had not planned to air Ann Romney's speech, which prime-time TV picked up Tuesday.

Tennent said Sen. Marco Rubio decided to give up his spot for Romney, who was originally scheduled to speak Monday.

She said she believed it may have been intentional to keep Romney off air because of the "supposed war on women."

"She's a beautiful and eloquent speaker," Tennent said. "She's a key surrogate in the race, as women voters are fiercely sought after by her husband—and Barack Obama."

Tennent's radio show airs on FM News Talk 104.7 from 6-10 a.m. and XM Satellite Radio Channel 166 from 6-9 a.m.

Congratulations! Just what America needs! A repeat of Bush's failed economic policy, a rerun of Chaney's failed foreign policy, with a regurgitation of Santorum's social policy just to spice things up. Gimme a break!!! We are finally making our way out of the abyss created by these jokers. We cannot go backward! GO FORWARD!!! GO OBAMA !!!!

I love Rose!! She is able to really talk to key people and give us a full view of the issues at hand. This is what we need, Direct unedited comments from the people who made them without being screened for what is "appropriate". I think this is what we need more often. Whether we like what they say or not, IT IS THE TRUTH. We need more TRUTH in the media. The other comments are vague and do not even comment on what was spoken about in the interviews. From these interviews we can see wher these people are coming from and we can make an informed decision. Give me TRUTHFUL FACTS anyday. Rhetoric has to go - it means nothing. Love you Rose!

Wonderful Job Rose! It was great having Rose at the RNC observing for us! She is able to get key people and make them feel comfortable to express themselves honestly-- important facts we would not know otherwise from news sound bites. We have people in our country that actually vote based on a few sound bites & outward appearance because they dont weigh the issues or seek out TRUTH! Rose is our (diligent) "warrior" on the ground delivering facts straight from candidates and key spokespeople--issues you need to know to make an intelligent decision. Thank Goodness we still have our FREEDOM of SPEECH in America! Keep up the good fight Rose! Asking the hard questions and helping us all understand the battle we are truly facing! Love your style!

"We cannot go backward"....Hey Charles! Repeating the same failed policies that we've had for the past 4 years would be going backwards. To "GO FORWARD" requires that we change what hasn't worked, not do more of it. The republicans have an exciting ticket and Rose's convention coverage was as everything else is that she does; fresh and insightful. It is great to see local talent do so well on nationally syndicated television and radio. Keep up the good work Rose! You never disappoint.

It was great to hear Rose reporting from Tampa. She does a great job of keeping everyone informed on the issues and the truth. We have a clear choice this November for good and not evil, for the truth and not lies. For Christians it is as plain as day. God Bless You Rose for speaking the truth and telling it like it is. God Bless The USA!

Rose rocks! Just love her and all she has done!

Charles- I completely agree. We cannot return to the day that Bush left office with the stock market at 6000 and hemorrhaging 800,000 jobs PER MONTH!!!!! And he wanted to privatize Social Security and put our retirement money in the hands of the bankers. And we all know what happened to them. Obama has taken us from the brink of entering a Depression. Is everyone out there 3 years old and can't remember what the condition of our country was in at the end of his term? No more failed Republican policies. Go Obama!

Rose...We here love the Warroom. As for the political side: * The ten poorest cities and percentage of population below the poverty level: 1. Detroit , MI 32.5% 2. Buffalo , NY 29.9% 3. Cincinnati , OH 27.8% 4. Cleveland , OH 27.0% 5. Miami , FL 26.9% 6. St. Louis , MO 26.8% 7. Chicago, Ill. 26.4% 8. Milwaukee , WI 26.2% 9. Philadelphia , PA 25.1% 10. Newark , NJ 24.2% U.S. Census Bureau, 2010 What are the common threads? Democrats and unions Detroit, MI (1st on the poverty rate list) hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1961. Buffalo, NY (2nd) hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1954. Cincinnati , OH (3rd) hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1984. Cleveland , OH (4th) hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1989. Miami, FL (5th) has never had a Republican mayor until now and he was recalled St. Louis , MO (6th) hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1949. Chicago, Ill (7th) has never had a Republican mayor. Milwaukee , WI (8th) hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1908. Philadelphia , PA (9th) hasn't elected a Republican mayor since 1952.

* In the history of our federal government: 5 Representatives have been expelled. All 5 were Democrats. 14 Senators have been expelled. All 14 were Democrats. 21 Representatives censured. 16 Democrats, 5 Republicans. 7 Senators have been censured. 4 were Democrats, 3 were Republican. 2 Presidents have been impeached. Both were Democrats. The troubling facts: 80% Democrat offenders, 20% Republican A ten year old child can look at the facts above and see the common threads. The nation is next if this insanity is not stopped, now and forever
