you people cannot get off your asses and organize enough people to nominate a GOP candidate you prefer

So "us people" is every conservative who supported a candidate other than Romney. Seems to me that's every conservative - which leaves you as ....

lol.

All I said is that third parties have every right to organize and get ballot access. The GOP should be trying to convince people to vote for them instead of trying to take away any alternatives.

A moldy cheese sandwich could beat Obama this year and the GOP is busy bashing conservatives.

I don't know about your state, but there will be more than 2 candidates listed at the top of the ticket here.

BTW, I'm not a Republican. I'm a conservative. Big difference.

I'm sure he would have supported the after the primary rule change in Michigan too.

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."

That is a totally different issue.

The issue is ballot access. Third parties have every right to exist and to offer up candidates.

This part has nothing to do with Romney or Newt or anything

Like I said when you insist on acting like a political idiot, people are going to point out your idiocy. If you don't like it, quit being an idiot.

Reagan had words for your sort of dogmatic ideological purist.

By Ronald Reagan in his autobiography An American Life

“When I began entering into the give and take of legislative bargaining in Sacramento, a lot of the most radical conservatives who had supported me during the election didn’t like it. “Compromise” was a dirty word to them and they wouldn’t face the fact that we couldn’t get all of what we wanted today. They wanted all or nothing and they wanted it all at once. If you don’t get it all, some said, don’t take anything. I’d learned while negotiating union contracts that you seldom got everything you asked for. And I agreed with FDR, who said in 1933: ‘I have no expectations of making a hit every time I come to bat. What I seek is the highest possible batting average.’ If you got seventy-five or eighty percent of what you were asking for, I say, you take it and fight for the rest later, and that’s what I told these radical conservatives who never got used to it.

Do you think you are going to convince people to vote for your liberal candidate by calling them idiots?

You have much luck with that technique?

I wonder what Reagan would think of your style of 'reaching out to the right'.

Well it doesn’t matter how much the other candidates if the ‘nominee’ can boot them out for not backing him.

I think voting for a 3rd. party in this cycle would be suicidally foolhardy.

That being said...where does the GOP get off determining who is and is not qualified for the ballot? All states have their qualifications, and if somebody is able to meet them they should get on the ballot.

Looks to me like a pre-emptive strike because they know sooner or later the Tea Party is going to be forced to split away and take them on.

I remember studying something like this in college...

I recall it was “the Sugar Monopolies”

They were proven to be unConstitutional by the Supreme Court...

But theres nothing sweet about what Willard and his GOP-e goons are doing...

I don’t and never supported Gary Johnson, but he has every right to run for President. I think candidates who lose a primary should not be able to jump to another party for the same election but the rules are what they are.

The democrats and republicans are neighboring plantations with two groups of slaves shouting back and forth over a shared fence. The only time they stop is when they chuck rocks at free men passing on the road.
