Skip to comments.Romney Nomination in doubt – Brokered Convention likely
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.
The good of this is that maybe Romney will think twice about Conservative values and voters. The actual odds of that are minimal.
Even if he is pushed further to the right (center to most of us) he will push back. That will make it more likely that Obama will win again - heaven help us!
America will lose either way it seems!
The sad thing is that a bunch of posters here actually think this might be true.
LOL. Some Paulbots are smoking too much reefer.
This is the most insane piece I have read from the Paulites in a while. A Warren Harding Strategy? Pure lunacy.
Until after he is elected.
That is why I am for a brokered convention ... mayhap we can nominate the one we want rather then the one the MSM wants.
whachoo talkin bout willis
In MO congressional conventions this past weekend Ron Paul earned only 4 of 24 delegates. This is when according to the Ron Paul people, they were going to (depending on who you listen to) have either more than 50 % of the delegates or 85% of the delegates. They then blamed the results on low Paulbot turnout. — Yeah the most dedicated grassroots supporters of any candidate — WHO WERE HAND PICKED TO BE THERE! — somehow didn’t show up. Instead we are to believe that the Ron Paul faction loaded their slates with Ron Paul delegates (who didn’t show up) and Romney/Santorum alternates (who did).
More likely the Ron Paul people are now subject to believe their own propaganda and BS. BS that is designed to a) discourage the opposition, b) encourage the Paulbots, and c) keep the money flowing to Ron Paul for his retirement fund.
Was this originally published on 4/20? If it was, it would explain a lot.
Only the stupid ones.
2) If MSNBC and CNBC really ran with this story, they are dumber then a box of rocks! That may explain a lot of their hiring choices...
I have a bridge for sell... Not going to happen
OK by me.
Romney needs only 320 more more delegates to cross the 1,144 vote threshold to secure the nomination.
