Interesting note - can somone clarifty

The article state the delegates DO get to choose the VP. Is that true?

Yes.

Just like the top spot, names for VP are selected by nomination and a vote takes place.

Well slap me silly and call me stupid

I always thought the pres got to choose. This could be the leverage Paul speaks of - even if many delegates are forced to vote for Romney on first ticket - that doesn't mean those are Romney people and they could absolutely wreak havoc on the VP selection. They could essentially throw the race.

Don't make me slap you! LOL

You're on the wrong track there. Focus! We must force a brokered convention. Focus!

That has to make

That's gotta sting!

The Lt. Gov herself! But let's be clear here. We don't need no more Fakers in government who abandon the constitution. We're running this show people! All you establishment quacks can go cry to your Ziombies. And while you're at it, relay this message to them; WE'RE COMING TO CLEAN F**KIN' HOUSE AND THAT RIGHT QUICKLY! The more you try to get in our way, the more you expose yourselves. The moment we snatch this nomination, is the moment your alphabet-stations lose credibility with the American People. The more you slander Ron Paul, the less professional you look. It's coming down to the wire, and we're fixin' to re-write history this time. If there's to be blood shed, than we will gladly shed it to protect the messenger, and more importantly, the message. We will restore the glory of our Republic! And force every member of congress to comply with the bloody constitution or so help us we will see Capitol Hill BURN for this treachery!

The constitution can be a real B***H sometimes, can't it?

You can't get clean in a dirty bathtub.

An "outsized role" at the convention?

Abstinence has never been so scandalous...

The article says the

The article says the delegates have to vote for Romney......that isn't true is it....can't they abstain the first round and then vote for the Doc???

It's the latest lie coming directly from the msm memo to all

networks. YOU are correct. The do NOT have to vote for Romney.

Wow!

Wow, this has to leave Mitt still feeling the sting from this blow! Now Texans, don't let Mitt return the gesture to us or any of the future states, for that matter.

Two shorten the road.

Thanks

Thanks for info!!

I will give her credit. She

I will give her credit. She gave a good speech and she is a powerful speaker. But why did she refuse the alternate nomination? Was she mad?

Here's my protip for the GOP

Here's my protip for the GOP who feel they need a better strategy next time. The "SECRET" is to first find a candidate that actually stands for something that he can actually win supporters. Ron Paul has more supporters in MA than Mitt Romney. Mitt Romney won the primary because of Republican Zombies voting for who the media told them to vote for. He doesn't have "SUPPORTERS".

awesome!

This is so ironic, its hilarious!! :)

Yep, I was there and saw

Yep, I was there and saw that one. haha She refused (by phone) an alternate delegate nomination. I don't think they were too happy. There was also a Sheriff and Chuck Baker, who ran for Governor that lost the alternate delegate bid.

LOL! LOVE IT!!

What are you fightin' for?
Caught in the middle?
Freedom is only for those with the guts to defend it!

and now we donate thousands

and now we donate thousands of 1 cents to Mitt :P (transaction fee is over a penny)

a nod's as good as a wink to a blind bat

One Word: HAHAHAHA!!!

i was there. healy opened her 3 minute speech with a 40 second commercial from Mrs. Romney. then of course she went on and on about how great Mitt is. so it was great watching her lose

The fall from grace

is never pretty - so thank you for having the courage to stand by and watch the train wreck!!

Gotta love the spin: Romney

Gotta love the spin: Romney denied as opposed to Ron Paul wins.

Even when he loses it's still all about Romney and very little about Paul, if at all.

spin spin spin
