Skip to comments.Here's why Romney will be the nominee - GOP-E chicanery
Posted on 04/06/2012 7:15:17 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing
I've been catalogging the chicanery of the GOP-E for a while now. Take a look at this:
Notice how high the percentage of conservative states are proportional? Notice how low the percentage of progressive states are winner take all? Of course, there's overlap. But the trend is obvious.
This whole thing was friggin rigged from the beginning, by the big wigs and power brokers, in order to get their big government republican darling into the nomination.
Here's the count I took of the 50 states:
Proportional red states - 25
Proportional blue states - 16
Winner Take All Red - 4
Winner Take All Blue - 5
Big wigs and power brokers man......... big wigs and power brokers. SOBs in smoke filled rooms.

Romney may be the nominee but he will never be president.
Well, that’s clear as mud....not.
But you are correct in your headline. Romney will be the nominee. All the hyperventilating notwithstanding, that was a foregone conclusion months ago. Like it or not, there was, and is, simply no other viable candidate in the field.
Yaaaay! Coulter for Prez! W/ Miller for veep.....or the other way round is good, too.
Jeez, there’s only one person on your twice-posted list that would have even the remotest chance of getting elected.
But do keep posting, please.
The Tea Party gave the Republicans control of the House of clowns--uh--Representatives. However the Republicans decided that the Tea Party was too conservative and too partisan and really just too too hicksville. Really just a bunch of yokels. So they threw the Tea party aside for more suave urbane establishment candidates. Now they will be able to whine for another four (or forty) about how they could do oh so much better than the Democrats. And all the while the nation disintegrates.
I clicked ONLY once, do not know why it got posted twice. It has happened to me before. Wish there was a way to delete your post.
going by stats .... Obama has screwed up just about everything else since he became President, so there’s a good chance he’ll blow the election, too - independents are waking up now.
Never say never?
If romney the used car salesman is the GOP nominee, then we are doomed to four more years of the obamanation. They are two sides of the same socialist minted coin.
Disagree with your inclusion of Paul Ryan as GOP-E.
As far as I have been able to see, he’s been bucking it. Pretty much the same assessment abt Demint.
Why do you want to delete my post?
Don't forget the cheating in Iowa and other states. Iowa still has 8 different precincts who “lost” all their paperwork. Romney has his church people working the precincts. I'm sure they will miraculously be found when Romney needs them.

Romney is not a viable candidate. You think he’s the best one only because of the media coverage and the money he’s had for smear ads against all the others. He will lose.
Oh, GOP-E = GOP-Establishment I am guessing? Well, that list makes a little more sense now. A little.
I guess the GOP-E should have lined up behind....who? Paul? Cain? Bachmann? Johnson? Newt? The Donald??
I thought Perry was the guy for a while. He looked good for three reasons but I can only remember two right now.
It's up to Republican voters at the ballot box in November. Are they going to withhold their vote from the nominee because he's not the uniformly most perfect candidate, and let Obama cruise on in to a second term, or will they vote FOR the Republican nominee, and also give him a Republican House and Senate, with lots more conservatives, so they can get some good things done?
Not your post, I wanted to delete MY unintentional duplicate post. I would never want to deprive you of your 1st amendment rights.
I was alluding to the generally held opinion that any one who has endorsed Romney is part of the GOP Elites. I am having a hard time believing the alleged GOP-E’s got together in a smoke filled room and picked Romney. Some of the people in that list are newly elected, can hardly be called elites.
