Republican convention is in full-throated roar(Credit: AP/Jae C. Hong)

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Republican National Convention is finally in full-throated roar, cheering presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s name at every turn in a long-sought show of unity.

A soft-sided portrayal of the Republican candidate as husband and father, painted by his wife on the stage, combined with a parade of gleeful Obama-bashers Tuesday as the GOP seized its moment after days of worry about the hurricane that simultaneously roared ashore in Louisiana.

Romney made his debut at the convention two days before his own speech, rousing the crowd into cheers as he took the stage briefly to share a kiss with his wife after she spoke.

Ann Romney’s prime-time speech was in large measure an outreach to female voters as she declared her husband “will not let us down” if elected president.
