Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said the show will go on Tuesday following the calling off of the first day of the convention because of Tropical Storm Isaac, which is expected to turn into a hurricane by Monday.

“It’s an obvious choice,” Priebus, appearing on CBS “Face the Nation,” said about the cancellation. “Safety first. We’re going to go on with the convention on Tuesday, and we’re going to have a great nomination. We’re going to tell America why we need to fire Barack Obama and save America.”

Commenting on Missouri Rep. Todd Akin’s controversial comments last week, Priebus said the party has asked the Senate candidate to step down.

“If it’s really about liberty and freedom, which we believe it is, and if it really is about changing the course of this country off the Barack Obama pathway that we’re on, then Todd Akin has to put the cause above himself and realize that we can have a better chance in that seat,” he said.

Conventioneers are moving on with their support of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan and a week of spreading the candidates’ message for healing the country.

“I think Barack Obama is not real any more to the American people,” Priebus said. “The Barack Obama brand is broken, and that is an indictment on Barack Obama. The American people deserve a better future than the one that Barack Obama is trying to sell us.”
