Red Mass Group is reporting that the Romney Campaign is planning on decertifying the Ron Paul delegates that won positions at the MA State Caucuses on April 28th to the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida under the “Ronald Reagan Unity Liberty Slate, by invoking Rule 5.2, which requires delegates to be certified by the “allocation committee.”

Translation: We aint certifying no stinking Ron Paul Delegates

Cut and Run should get no Republican delegates. A person should have to be a Republican to get Republican delegates and Appeasement Paul and his band of surrender monkeys are anything but Republicans.

RP did his bit for Mitt in scuttling the conservative gambit—now he must hold his sword and fall on it.

Romney is a royal pos but he ain't a commie and his dogs aren't et.

Romney won the MA Primary. Then they had a State Caucus to choose delegates. Don’t ask me why. The MA GOP Chairman mailed out the slate of ultra liberal, old guard candidates. When Conservatives saw that there was not one of the newly elected conservative State Committee, tea party etc members, that took over half of the committee seats in the March 6th Primary, they did what Conservatives always do when forced to vote against their principles, they stayed home and didn’t bring anybody in to vote for Romney, so thhe Ron Paul People mobilized and took over. Good for them! They just followed the rules. The GOP doesn’t like what happened and now they want to change the rules.

They're getting plenty of practice.

The Michigan Republican Party (MRP) Credentials Committee voted 4-2 last night to give Mitt Romney both of the state's at-large delegates, State Policy Committee Chair Mike Cox told MIRS today.

Cox was one of two "no" votes on the committee which met via telephone, along with attorney Eric Doster The "yes" votes included GOP National Committeeman Saul Anuzis, a Romney supporter, and MRP Chair Bobby Schostak.

That would put the delegate split at 16 for Romney and 14 for Rick Santorum, after each candidate won 14 delegates apiece in those divided by Michigan's 14 congressional districts.

As MIRS first reported on Wednesday, the MRP was delaying a final decision on the delegate split until after consulting with attorneys.

Cox said that according to the MRP rules, Santorum and Romney should each get one of Michigan's two at-large delegates based on their take of the popular vote.

"I supported Mitt, but the vote was clearly wrong," Cox said of the Credentials Committee. "It's kind of like Third World voting. We published rules and then we voted to change the rules."

I can see the GOP calling us "bitter gun owners and Bible clingers" in the near future.

So the GOP should let any anti-American receive delegates just because they FOLLOW the RULES ? Shouldn't they have to follow Republican principles? Cut and Run as I posted before is no more a Republican than Obama. There is nobody running who hates America more than Appeasement Paul.

Romney is far from my first choice, but at least he does not want to see America run by mooseslimes. The surrender monkey would rather surrender to our enemies than defeat them.

In your IMO, and a swift boat load more peoples too!

Last 2 elections NEITHER party put up a Constitutionally Eligible Candidate.

MC Lame was not born on base. It was Panamanian, barely, but it was not US soil.

Myth's daddy was a Mexican National. Again Not Eligible.

Rigged rigged rigged rigged rigged rigged rigged.

Wait till Bammy refuses to hand over the office because the bishop's not a fully NBC!

Why do I have this sick feeling in my stomach that Paul's robots are gonna attempt to cause maximum damage...perhaps culminating in the whackjob himself announcing a third party run.Good God...Texas has some mighty fine people but it has more than its share of looney toons as well.

I don’t like Ron Paul either. My criticism is with the MA GOP for allowing this mess to happen.

I personally have no use for Ron Paul but that doesn’t negate the fact that the GOP is behaving like Obama’s Chicago machine. Here in Michigan they changed the delegate allocation rules after the vote to spare Lord Romney the indignity of a tie.

The Grand Old Plantation can kiss my ass.

Thank you for explaining that so I could understand. I was struggling a little. So my question would be why don't groups or people or organizations follow their own rules? Seems cynical to me.

“Cut and Run should get no Republican delegates. A person should have to be a Republican to get Republican delegates and Appeasement Paul and his band of surrender monkeys are anything but Republicans.”

Maybe some “John D” Republicans should have bothered to show up to vote for Romney’s anti-gun, pro-abortion, pro-homo anti-America MA delegate slate?

Or maybe “John D” Republicans simply have nothing better to do than sit around and post juveniloid comments on bulletin boards?

In one of your posts in this thread you claimed that Romney was “far from your first choice” or words to that effect. Your claim is not credible.

“So my question would be why don’t groups or people or organizations follow their own rules”

Most of us, don’t have the power to change the rules of an election once the results are in, unless you’re a dictator in a Banana Republic or you’re the Florida Supreme Court in the case of Gore vs Bush, in the 2000 Presidential election. If you want to change the rules of any kind before the contest actually takes place, then that is entirely different matter. I don’t have any problem with the Ron Paul People studying the rules in each state, and then getting all their people there on election day to vote at the caucuses, even if they are trying to take over the convention, which we all know that is exactly what they’re plan is, and they are using the GOP’s own rules to do it. In Massachusetts this situation could have been avoided. I can’t speak about all the other states that are now having certification problems with their delegates as well, but If the MA GOP had allowed a seat at the table for the Conservatives as well as the establishment, they could have come up with a slate that everyone felt was fair, but you see the MA GOP Establishment is at war with Social Conservatives in MA over “abortion” and gay marriage issues and everyone knows it. It’s always the elephant in the room, and they refuse to allow “social conservatives” at the table, even though social conservatives now control most of the State Committee seats after the last election on Mar 6th, which was essentially a grass roots revolution, which you have heard virtually nothing about in the main stream media. . Also I read on one of the Ron Paul Blogs (http://www.dailypaul.com/231133/ma-gop-establishment-planning-on-de-certifying-newly-elected-ron-paul-delegates) which sent hundreds of visitors to my web site last night http://www.jazzpatriot.com/ that the original slate which gave the conservative base so much heatburn due to the way it was filled with ultra-liberal, old guard types, most of whom aren’t even in power anymore, was written by Mitt Romney himself, who isn’t even our governor anymore. If that is true, and I don’t know if it is, the corruption in the MA GOP is worse than I thought.

Well they definitely shouldn't change the rules in favor of another anti-American like Romney.

Shouldn't they have to follow Republican principles?

Ditto.

Cut and Run as I posted before is no more a Republican than Obama. There is nobody running who hates America more than Appeasement Paul.

I don't like the guy's stance on defense either, but at least you'd still be able to own a gun under a Paul presidency. Mitt is a gun grabber extraordinaire so he doesn't want you to be able to protect yourself from any terrorists - not muslims, not illegal mexican druggies, not meth lab freaks, not race pimp agitated mobs, nobody.

It is laughable that you seriously give either of these 2 freaks your support. Tragic that you would choose the socialist over the Constitutionalist.
