Mass. GOPís caucus picks leave Romney slate slighted
Boston Glob ^ | April 30, 2012 | Stephanie Ebbert

. . . when Massachusetts Republicans went to their caucuses on Saturday, many didn’t vote for Mitt Romney’s picks. Less than half of Romney’s 27 chosen delegates won, and the losers included some notable Massachusetts Republicans - including former Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey and House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones Jr. {and Charlie Baker, failed gubernatorial candidate}

The Ron Paul delegates still have to vote for Romney on the first ballot, but this is still got to be very embarrassing to a complacent, ill organized Romney campaign and indicative of the general lack of enthusiasm for him even in his home state.

Is Romney a voter in MA or CA? Hasn’t he written off all of his states of residence, MI, MA, and CA? Only UT stands unblemished for Romney-Hatch? He may even have problems in OH: Buckeyes hate admitting they have been wrong.

Romney CANNOT even win Massachusetts IN THE GOP.

The GOPe is destroying America — and they love it.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

On to an OPEN Convention in Tampa!

My Nominee choice would be Senator Jim DeMint, R-Sc.

We need a LEADER, not a “less than half,” empty suit RINO.

If Romney defeats Obama, but continues a reformed Obama”care,” we have just re-arranged the chairs on our Titanic, otherwise known as the US National Debt.

The icebergs are out there, and each is called FINANCIAL REALITY!

“Notable” RINO’s take heed: “T” is for TEXAS, Tampa, and the TEA Party!

BTW, will Santorum cave-in and assign his delegates to the RINOs before Tampa?

There is a bigger story here... Basically, democrats and unenrolled (up until February 15) crashed the republican caucuses with the purpose to cause havoc at the convention and install Paul as the nominee.

These dems and indies have joined a group called "Blue Republicans" to switch parties (for a year). It is NOT just MA, but at least LA and MO as well, and I'm sure other states too. They are looking at every conceivable nook to stymie convention rules, get out of voting on the first ballot, and do whatever it takes to force a second.

The MA wing of this group is here.

Their behavior at the caucuses was horrendous - imagine if a bunch of OWS type folks decided their next place to occupy was a republican caucus, and you begin to have an idea of what it was like.

I wish them well!

Anything to keep Romney from getting the nomination works for me!

So, basically, a bunch of democrats invaded and messed up the GOP’s plans to cleanly nominate a pro-choice democrat for president.

What a mess.

That may be possible but doubtful. The electors at the caucus are members of the varying town Republican committees. I was supposed to be at this meeting but missed it because I had prior family plans to attend to. Now I kind of wish I had gone to it anyway.

Doesn't hold a candle to what the Mitbots did in Virginia. They first seized control of the government and then rewrote the rules to make sure that ONLY Romney and Paul were on the ballot.

We had about 10% the number of people show up who usually vote in the primaries.

That's how thin Romney's support really is ~

As thin as graphene, and not nearly as useful.

Well, there’s nothing doubtful about the fact that the formerly grand old party is fixing to nominate a pro-choice democrat.

Romney has become very polarizing and is creating divisions between the base. He is as bad if not worse than Obama. This is the same divide and conquer tactics Obama used to win in 2008.
