Did Romney's HOME State just put Ron Paul in the nomination bin at the National Republican Convention?

So far Ron Paul has won at least 4 states, he needs a plurality in 5 to be put into nomination at the Republican National Convention and also get an automatic speaking spot, it appears that Ron Paul won that 5th state today in Romney's home state of Massachusetts! The Romney campaign is dazed and confused.

This so awesome. RP is just

This so awesome. RP is just kicking butt out there right now. Just to throw a little sugar on top I went over to RomCentral (not to post, just to see) and they are all just talking about their dogs, how big the roaches are in NY, and the mods are trying to explain who some obscure politician is and his stance on state involvement in the who knows what. They really have no clue. Guess that is what happens when you are plugged into the MSM.

Tampa is going to be so awesome. We need some live feeds for sure.

There is a football term that comes to mind when I consider all this. It is in reference to a quarter backs weakness. It is called the blindside. Think about it. Those Rombots in the "camfeign" for Mittens, with all their money and all their MSM attention and all their GOP good ol boy support are about to get blindsided by a 140 lbs.(?) Texas senior citizen. And they are going to feel it in the morning!!!

I can't wait to hear what all these talking heads are going to say when RP walks away with nomination! They will sound like Obama w/o a prompter. It's gonna be great. Keep up the good work everyone! I look forward to reporting some more encouraging numbers from my state on Friday.

You made me LMAO!

Great post! I'm still cracking up at the thought of the talking heads sounding like Obama without a telepromter!

What a great night!

"RP is just kicking butt out there right now"

The delegates are the ones kicking butt.

Godspeed to our delegate brothers and sisters.

You know what I meant. Yes

You know what I meant. Yes you are right. It is of course the delegates doing all the hard work. Which is why I gave some encouragement at the end of the comment. I will need some my self on Friday and later at the state convention if I am elected to go.

Wish There Could Have Been A Way To Vote To Unbind

.

I was reading on another thread

Apparently a vote at the National Convention can overturn a State's decision to bind delegates. I hope this is true...

Misleading and incorrect.

Romney won MA. All of the delegates "won" today are bound on the first ballot. It was a small victory for the campaign, but not a 5th plurality.

Doesn't matter now, go Alaska #5

by the way, you delegates in Mass., abstain and elect your own delegation chair, just in case.

I don't think winning

I don't think winning delegates that will bound to Romney for Round 1 is considered having a plurality in that state.

But to have the feeling of liberty embedded in my heart from these results is nice.

you can unbind them and

you can unbind them and abstain.

Romney being dazed and

Romney being dazed and confused is an insult to the movie.

not to mention

the song the movie took it's title from!

joeinmo can you decipher this this post and put it in laymans

terms for everyone? Then we need to verify it. Thanks

It's in Texas

i have never heard of a fourth bound delegate, National Party rules only permit bound delegates on the first round.

Anyway, it says Texas bound on first vote proportionally to how Texans vote in the Primary, and there is no head count from the delegation at the National Convention. That's weird because the Texas delegation secretary has report the head count.

Couple ways to beat that if true, if there are enough Paul delegates or Paul delegates bound to Romney to elect a Paul Texas Delegation Chair, he abstains.

Also can change rules at Texas State Convention.

Thanks

that cleared up things up considerably.
