Romney Nomination in doubt Brokered Convention likely
Whiteout Press ^ | Richard Winger

Posted on 04/24/2012 8:32:25 PM PDT by Huskrrrr

April 24, 2012. Des Moines. Two networks yesterday, CNBC and MSNBC, broadcast a little known fact – Ron Paul appears to be winning the Republican nomination for President. When the popular Texas Congressman repeatedly assured supporters that the race was about delegates, not beauty contests, he apparently knew what he was talking about. Now, after three more states locked in delegates to the GOP nominating convention – CO, MN and IA – indicators point to a brokered convention with a possible, even probable, Ron Paul victory.

Was this originally published on 4/20? If it was, it would explain a lot.

Look, I despise Romney and everything he stands for.

But the Paultards are not going to wrassle this nomination away from Romney.

Ron Paul would make an excellent president if there were no such thing as other countries...

this is Ron Paul’s third try at becoming a Presidential nominee...

he has struck out and it is over for him...

too old, weak, and frail...send him to Texas with his wife to smell the flowers..

his time has come and gone...

Ron Paul will never be President. If he can force an open convention, then more power to him, but I don’t see it happening - it’s been obvious since the Virginia ballot debacle that the fix was in.

Well I hope something happens because Romney is now dumping Conservatism as FAST as he can.

Heck yes. The fix is in. The elites in all f Washington will never allow him access nor will they ever allow a true conservative to be Prez. Any of you that think it can happen are peeing in the wind.

If the Texas SREC approves a rule change allowing for a state-wide winner-take-all primary provided the candidate gets a majority of the state-wide vote, Romney could pick up a large portion of the delegates he needs at the end of May. I really don’t think Republican primary voters in Texas will vote to make the nomination drag out till the convention even if Romney isn’t the first choice of most of the Republican voters in Texas. I think that with a late national convention, it would be suicidal to drag out the nomination process till the convention.

While many political analysts are calling Ron Paul’s current journey a mirror image of Harding’s 1920 trek, others aren’t quite convinced.
As reported on SNL, Weekend Update.

Ron Paul’s a monomaniac, worse than Obama. I wouldn’t trust him for Dog Catcher.

“they should not have spent perhaps millions of dollars on attack ads”

You got that right. I had some sympathy for Ron Paul until he ran those vile adds down here, worse than any the Dems have run. They know to tread lightly as they need to attract a few who don’t vote party line. How stupid can you be to run such adds in the primarys?
