Delegates Heading to Tampa Sue the GOP
The GUardian Express ^ | June 15, 2012 | Randy Rose

Posted on 06/15/2012 7:17:40 PM PDT by Innovative

The federal lawsuit, filed this week in U.S. District Court in California demands the delegates be freed to "vote their conscience" for presidential nominee at the party's August national convention in Tampa, Fla., rather than being "bound" to vote for a certain candidate, as many state party bylaws require, based on the primary elections and other delegate selection procedures. Courthouse News Service reports at least another 40 additional national convention delegates have asked to join the lawsuit which would bring the total to 160 Delegates.

Yet striking down party rules that bind candidates to vote in accordance with the primary process could suddenly open up the nomination to another campaign season, as presidential hopefuls could attempt to sway the elected delegates to their side, a potentiality Gilbert recognizes.

Mr. ROmneyCARE and his vicious Team of BAckstabber
attacked the GOP through their attacks on Gov. Palin.

That was ok, right?

Having a Democrat lead the GOP is ok, right?

Having a LIAR and BACKSTABBER represent you is good, right?

This has “Pauliac” written all over it!

That would be my guess.

“If the judge rules in our favor, I won’t be surprised if three or four new candidates, say Sarah Palin, jump in and say they want to be considered,” Gilbert told Courthouse News. “It will be the most interesting national convention in my lifetime if the judge rules for us on this.”

We could only hope....

I don’t see that is realistic to dump the nominee who is competitive..and dump him for one who isn’t.

Bravo to the Tea Party folks. Maybe a little Michiganitis will catch on. So you think they will be a tad rowdy at the convention?

I noticed from the very beginning how assured Rove was that Romney had the “organization”. I am absolutely convinced Rove was in bed with Priebus and the RNC. Santorum, Perry, Newt are not ignorant men but they didnt even make it on the Virginia ballot? Fla changed their primary rules? the entire primary season was hell to watch.
You know I felt like I was watching elections orchestrated by the DU.

"Also I noticed that Sarah Palin made an interesting comment..it is at the end of the article."

READ IT AGAIN! Sarah Palin DID NOT SAY ANYTHING.

The guy being interviewed said as below, "say Sarah Palin" is an expression, "as an example Sarah Palin".

The quote from the article is below:

"If the judge rules in our favor, I won't be surprised if three or four new candidates, say Sarah Palin, jump in and say they want to be considered," Gilbert told Courthouse News. “It will be the most interesting national convention in my lifetime if the judge rules for us on this."

First of all Sarah Palin is NOT stupid to jump into this self-destructive frey. Second of all, I wonder about this Gilbert guy -- don't forget that Dems ran phony tea-party candidates in some GOP elections, this smells like another one of those operations. The ONLY outcome would be re-election of Obama.

What did Romney expect after his scorched earth campaign?

Scorched earth? Please... The other candidates were terrible. Romney was the only one who took running for president seriously.

SCROLL UP TO POST 5! I corrected myself! and once again..Romney ran a scorched earth campaign against fellow republicans and he expects us to unite behind him? his record as gov of Mass is indisputably liberal.

Yes,I saw your next post — after I posted mine, obviously.

It is time to get past the primaries, they are over and right now the only choice we have is Obama or Romney.

Those who have been deluding themselves that Obama is OK, as long as we somehow get a Republican Congress, should take another look at Obama’s amnesty by executive order.

This alone should send every thinking conservative to the polls voting AGAINST Obama and the ONLY way to do that is to hold your nose and vote for Romney.

Time to face reality.

Well dear FRiend... that is what the gop/e and some here on FR want us to believe... but when someone has faith in GOD and sees the truth through experience and education... we know that what they want us to believe is not only wrong... but evil at its core.

I think the exact opposite is true. Maybe a real conservative will be the candidate. Romney is disgusting.

“Maybe a real conservative will be the candidate. “

It’s sad that you can’t face reality and by your dreamworld thinking your are trying to suppress the conservative vote and enable Obama to get a second term.

It’s not over, and if you think I’m “trying to suppress the conservative vote” by voicing my utter loathing for the utterly NON-conservative Romney, you reveal yourself as having no wit or judgement.

Isn’t it about time to start your quarterly book reading survey? I haven’t seen one of those in a long time. I looked it up and you haven’t posted one since October of 2011.

“Obama is delighted! Let’s have some more Republican infighting, instead of having them focus on beating Obama.”

Oh yeah? Did you just get off the phone with him?
