“Pauls folks are trying to give the Convention an opportunity to select a REAL CANDIDATE instead of this pale imitation the Mittbots and GOP-e thinks is all we deserve.”
If that were the case, I’d say okay. But RP thinks the only “real candidate” is himself - and he’s said as much many times. He also knows (and has said) that he won’t win but is still in this to “prove a point”. He played a large role in savaging all the other candidates (including some good conservatives), paving the way for Mittens.
I see that as betraying our country.
at this moment following that same logic you’d have to call Romney an arch traitor
I’d be happy if he just pulled enough to keep the nomination out of Romney’s camp and force a brokered convention.
