We did toss two RINOs off the national committee a few weeks back in Michigan. Saul Anuzis is one man I was happy to see gone. When they behave like democrats its time to treat them like democrats. (Anuzis has also been pushing the national popular vote)
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."

(What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?)
"When they behave like democrats its time to treat them like democrats."
Amen - and pass the ammunition!
State and local politics is where we all need to concentrate our own efforts - that of keeping RINO's at bay, denying them any position of power whatsoever.
Conservatives fighting RINO's in state party structure is 'where-it's-at' - and the sooner FReepers jump into that fray and fight like hell, the sooner we'll purge the party of squishy good-for-nothings!
I spent all of my efforts at that job, and helped to toss RINO'S out of the power in CA (back when.) It was a huge battle, it cost a lot of money, but in the end we denied party seats to a host of RINO candidates - not ONE gained a seat.
