James Bopp Jr. isn't just a Romney adviser, he is pretty much the face of the business side of the establishment. He is the Vice Chairman of the party and head of the rules committee.
This is pretty damning. It shows the business side of the party, the establishment, opposed the rule change.
True. But, let us not forget that there are other Establishments who were all for it: Boehner, Sununu, and most damning of all, Ginsberg.
I feel the most powerful, most direct sign that Romney DOES embrace us, is a denuciation by the official Romney camp of the Rules Change. At this point, that is what it will take, to placate us and get us on board.
He needs to unify. As soon as possible. Forcefully, as such an action would be.
