Many Ron Paul supporters and delegates have been very disappointed that Paul wasn’t given a prime time speaking slot at the upcoming GOP convention in Tampa.

However, it has been revealed by the New York Times today that Paul was indeed offered the opportunity to speak at the convention.  An offer which he turned down.

According to the New York Times, the Romney campaign offered the speaking slot on the condition that the speech was vetted and that Paul fully endorse Romney:

Mr. Paul, in an interview, said convention planners had offered him an opportunity to speak under two conditions: that he deliver remarks vetted by the Romney campaign, and that he give a full-fledged endorsement of Mr. Romney. He declined. 

‘It wouldn’t be my speech,’ Mr. Paul said. ‘That would undo everything I’ve done in the last 30 years. I don’t fully endorse him for president.’

Paul’s statement also put to rest any speculation that he would be endorsing Romney for president in 2012.
