It's Begun! Bloomberg-BusinessWeek: How Ron Paul could mess with Romney in Tampa!

How Ron Paul Could Mess With Romney at the GOP Convention

By Elizabeth Dwoskin on May 07, 2012

Mitt Romney wants nothing more than to lock up the Republican nomination and focus entirely on beating President Obama. But for Ron Paul’s supporters, the long primary season ain’t over till it’s over. The Texas congressman hasn’t won a single primary in his third run for the White House, yet his acolytes are much savvier at political maneuvering than in campaigns past. This year they’re determined to influence the nominating process at the GOP convention in Tampa.

To win the so-called roll call vote there and become the nominee, you need 1,144 delegates. Romney has 847. Paul has 80. Contest over, right?

Paul is actually gaining ground in some states, where intense contests to divvy up delegates are underway. At one gathering last weekend in Massachusetts, the majority of delegates elected were Paul supporters. He may do just as well in upcoming votes in Minnesota, Iowa, Colorado, and Maine, according to Josh Putnam, assistant political science professor at Davidson College.

===============================================================

UPDATE: Some notable MSM & the GOP Establishment responses to our Great Weekend, and going forward to Tampa, and beyond. It looks like their sentiments range from OMG, genuinely surprised all the while never omitting to remind themselves that 'it won't matter, Romney is the presumptive nominee, it's locked in, nothing those RP rabble rousers would do, matter' to feigned irreverence to mask their very real fear.

At least that's what I 'sense' from their responses below:

"These events do not reflect well on the Romney campaign"

""Beltway insiders might dismiss it, some in the media may choose to overlook it, and establishment party hacks will at times cheat, but nothing can stop the Ron Paul-influenced reawakening of the conservative movement in America," said Jesse Benton"

"I think he[Romney]'s being very careful because he knows how important the Ron Paul voters are - they obviously represent a very different dynamic," said Mike Dennehy, a former top aide to John McCain's 2008 campaign."

Paul forges ahead with weekend victories

WASHINGTON - If the Republican primary race is over, nobody has bothered to tell Ron Paul.

Even as the national media has declared Mitt Romney the inevitable GOP presidential nominee to take on President Barack Obama, the Texas congressman with the highly organized army of never-say-die loyalists surprised the Republican front-runner by sweeping three state conventions in the past weekend.

Paul's successes in Iowa, Maine and Nevada are helping him - slowly but surely - pile up delegates to the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Even if the libertarian from Lake Jackson is unable to secure the nomination - which still seems to be a safe bet - he is making it harder for party regulars to deny him a voice on the convention floor and the party's 2012 platform.

For Romney, the reverses in three key states in three different regions of the country are a sign of some organizational weakness and inattention to detail for a campaign preparing for a showdown with the most effective multiplatform political machine of the Internet age.

===============================================================

"He [Ron Paul] also has a mathematical shot at winning delegations from Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oregon and Vermont, which have yet to hold significant delegate-selecting conventions."

"If Paul supporters were to succeed at six state conventions, they could halt convention proceedings in Tampa and make motions on nearly anything from the floor under suspended rules, from changing the convention rules, to electing a new convention chairman, to offering up platform resolutions (which they can’t do from the floor, under convention rules). If they aren’t given a say in the GOP platform, Paul supporters could seek to obstruct its passage on the convention floor. (They would almost certainly fail, but it would look bad for Romney and the GOP.)"

Ron Paul’s Not-So-Secret Plot for the GOP Convention

By Chris Good | May 7, 2012 3:46pm | Twitter@c_good

For Ron Paul, it’s no longer about becoming president.

His backup plan since January has been to use delegates as a bargaining chip to extract concessions at the GOP convention: a prominent speech or the inclusion of Paul’s views in the party platform that will be approved in Tampa, Fla., in August. To some degree, his campaign is about influence and leverage.

“That’s the fallback. If we don’t pull it off and we’re not in first place, yes, that would be a good goal,” Paul told Fox News’ Chris Wallace after the Iowa caucuses. ”I run to win, and I have won a lot, but we also want to help direct the party and the country in a certain way, so that would be a very, very positive strategy to have an influence on the party.”

For a long-shot candidate like Paul, success might be the mainstreaming of his ideology.

===============================================================

From International Business Times, which I believe (though could be wrong) actually endorsed Dr. Paul for 2012!

Here's Sara on what Johnson just being nominated Libertarian Party candidate over the weekend means to the Ron Paul R3VOLution heading into Tampa, and beyond.

Oh, and Endorese Liberty SuperPAC will continue to support Dr. Paul's efforts, in some shape or form, and not Gary Johnson! (or... for now?)

"Endorse Liberty isn't going to be getting behind any Libertarian candidates, and we don't plan to," said Jeffrey Harmon, one of the co-founders of the pro-Paul super PAC, which isn't allowed by law to coordinate with the candidate, but invests in ads in his favor. "We're Republicans and we're trying to take back the Republican Party. ... I have a lot of libertarian ideals, but this is a two-party system -- why try to leave a system that's built to hold out any other party?"

Ron Paul's Biggest Supporters Put GOP Ahead of Libertarian Party, Gary Johnson

By Sara Dover
May 7, 2012 3:59 PM EDT

Ron Paul's biggest supporters have made their intentions clear: Changing the Republican Party from within surpasses any devotion they may have for the Libertarian Party and its presidential candidate, Gary Johnson.

Still, Johnson and the Libertarian Party are hoping to draw support from Paul's devotees, assuming the Texas congressman fails to snag the GOP nod from former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Tapping into a reservoir of Paul's passionate, famously dedicated grassroots army is no easy feat. For one, pro-Paul super PAC Endorse Liberty said the former New Mexico governor isn't on its agenda. Paul was the Libertarian candidate in 1988.

===============================================================

An interesting take from Christian Science Monitor:

"For instance, what if Paul supporters who are bound to vote for Romney in the first round by state rules simply abstain from casting their ballots? That might keep Romney under the 1,144 votes he needs to win the nomination – even if he actually (sort of) has those votes in hand!"

Why Ron Paul's big wins in Maine and Nevada matter (+video)

When Ron Paul delegates show up at the Republican National Convention in August, they may be strong enough to throw the event into disarray – just at the moment Mitt Romney needs to show the GOP united behind him.

By Peter Grier, Staff writer / May 7, 2012

Ron Paul scored big victories at the Maine and Nevada Republican Party conventions on Sunday. In both states his forces won the majority of delegates to this summer's national GOP convention in Tampa, Fla.

As we noted Sunday, this means Mr. Paul’s strategy of organizing the grass roots and working arcane delegate selection rules is paying off. And that could mean big trouble for Mitt Romney and his plans to smoothly pivot to a campaign aimed solely at incumbent President Obama.

Yes, Mr. Romney is still the presumptive nominee. It’s highly unlikely Paul will be able to deny the former Massachusetts governor the prize he’s sought for so long. But Paul’s forces aren’t lining up and saluting a Romney victory. When they show up in Tampa in August they may be strong enough, and prepared enough, to throw the convention floor into embarrassing disarray.

“All of this means the GOP can no longer ignore its libertarian ‘fringe.’ On the contrary, it will have to reach out to a new generation of activists who don’t regard religious piety or continual warfare as sacred tenets of conservatism,” wrote Oxford University historian Timothy Stanley in a CNN opinion column last week.

Ron Paul Spoke Right Next to Where UC Davis Students Were Pepper Sprayed; Nobody Protested

Quite honestly, if any other Republican presidential candidate were to have stopped by the UC Davis quad to give a campaign speech last week, there's little doubt in my mind that it would have been overshadowed by some form of protest.

We're talking about the same quad where non-violent students were pepper sprayed by campus police as the Occupy movement took hold last November, turning the location into a symbol and a gathering point.

To put it bluntly, the Occupy movement and the Republican Party don't exactly line up in agreement on many issues. As the editor of a local news site in Davis, I've sat in on enough General Assemblies to know that, although every protester has his/her own opinions, hardly anybody within the Occupy movement would check a box next to Romney's or Santorum's names.

I took a bunch of photos at the rally. Check out the diversity of the crowd here.

That the talking heads keep saying "Ron Paul won't win the nomination but he may get a good talking spot".

Sorry but that isn't the goal. Ron Paul is going to WIN this thing, and nothing the media can say is going to change that.

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

The Federal Reserve does not

The Federal Reserve does not come under the Freedom of Information.The Federal Reserve is a perpetual debt machine."I wish it were possible to obtain a single amendment to our Constitution. I would be willing to depend on that alone for the reduction of the administration of our government to the genuine principles of its constitution; I mean,an additional article, taking from the Federal government the power of borrowing." Thomas Jefferson, Nov,26, 1789.Ron Paul has warned us for years and years about the Federal Reserve as well as many other warnings our founders gave both in their letters and in their quotations.I believe our founders would have difficulty believing this nation that they created and thereby formed the most perfect form of government in history could have so many ignorant people today. "The budget should be balanced, the treasury should be filled,the public debt should be reduced,the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. people must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. --Cicero, 55 BC.

My question is: Have you ever heard about rigged machines????

http://youtu.be/JEzY2tnwExs ????

Make sure you check the comments sections out. Wouldn't it

be great to be a fly on the wall when the editor and journalist read the comments after comments after comments from the educated, passionate Ron Paul supporters. I wonder when they are going to run the "Where have all the Ron Paul supporters gone article?" Keep up the great work everyone!

they want to think of it as clever & skillful campaigning

and to a point, yes, that is true. But - none of it could or would be done without the passion for the message Ron Paul has. We connect with it, and are driven by it.

Mitt Romney has a weak base of supporters because his message does not inspire. In fact - what is his message again?

Reflections on the Article

"Clearly some of Paul’s ideas have found their way into the party, which is what Paul’s delegates are really after."

Really? What part of 'in it to win it' don't they understand? Granted, even without the nomination, we'll take whatever progress we can in the right direction, but what Paul supporters really want is the white house... no really. Meaning what you say isn't common in politics, but it is among us.

"He isn’t likely to actually get the nomination that way, but multiple states clamoring for him would embarrass the party and make things more difficult for Romney in the months before November.

To fend off that political nightmare, Romney may have to offer concessions to Paul. Perhaps give him the microphone and let him speak in Tampa. Or incorporate some of his ideas into party platforms that the GOP will hash out in Tampa."

Heh... there will be no 'fending off' with concessions. I'm really looking forward to what happens in Tampa.

"That doesn’t mean Paul’s going to steal the nomination from Romney in Tampa. But his delegates could shake things up right when the party’s supposed to unify behind a single candidate."

Sigh... "steal" "supposed to"... implied negativity associated with our fight for ideals within the framework of the rules. If anyone has been stealing, it's the establishment not doing what THEY are supposed to do - cheating, lying, disregarding their own rules.

"For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God."
(1 Peter 2:15-16)

Troll

We want more than speaking time at the convention. We want Ron Paul for President.

This time don't give us Barabbus!

We Don't Need Romney To...

...GIVE us ANYTHING.....We are takin' charge!

"Beyond the blackened skyline, beyond the smoky rain, dreams never turned to ashes up until.........

We don't need Romney to give us anything...

...in fact, if he drops out...YESTERDAY...we'll see to it that his and his son's jail sentences aren't any longer than 2 decades. Go ahead, Romney trolls, take the message back to "he who can't gather more than 200 people to listen to him."

Fending off

If there was a way to "fend off" Ron Paul, it would have already happened.

Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools, that don't have brains enough to be honest. - Ben Franklin

I love how they keep saying "Ron Paul hasn't won a single state" over and over and over again.

Exactly

Don't worry. I ripped her a new one for that. He just had two wins this weekend, but somehow he hasn't won a state? What? Is she brain dead? This is not a back door way of winning. It is the ONLY way of really winning.

Ripping

I went to Bloomberg and read the comments. Good Job on ripping.
I decided to leave a comment. This is what I wrote:
"Boy oh boy, Reading the comments here, I see that the "Wee the Little People" appear to be more like the "Awakened Giant."
This can't be much of an endorsement for the "WagTheDogMedia".
Often times I have noticed that voices in comments section when exposing truth, the so-called "Fair & Balanced" news outlet will eliminate or shut down the comment section.
OOPS, the toothpaste is already out of the tube.
The corporate media should read about "Humpty Dumpty".
BTW, Rmoney/GoldmanSach will not have to wait until Tampa to be embarrassed.
In the kitchen of public opinion, mass servings of Crow are about to be served up, enjoy MSM. "

But it never posted? There is no longer visible ANY comments. Maybe I am blocked or they cannot afford TRUTHFUL feedback and have shut it down.
;)

Edit: The comment section is now back. My comment was not there. So... I re-entered it. It would not surprise me if they do take it down.

primary

It is true that he hasn't won a single primary, isn't it? What she leaves out are all the caucuses he's won.

(Add to that) and continues to win.

Actually he did win a primary...

US Virgin Islands...
So it's technically correct to say he didn't win a "state" primary, but he DID win a primary.
Of course when the Romney campaign mentions the Virgin Islands, they say Romney won it because he got more delegates, so with that logic we HAVE won a bunch of states where we got more Delegates than Romney did.

Virgin Islands

dr. paul did win the virgin islands, but romney took more delegates. not quite sure how that works, but so be it. since romney took more delegates, they put it in the win column for romney...lol!

give some of them credit for being - plain STUPID

give some of them credit for being (just simply said) - plain STUPID.

Most "people" in media are out there for positive feedback, recognition and sympathy - for being liked and admired, the media industry is mostly employing attention prostitutes just as well as politics is employing actors nowadays.

These PoliticianImpersonators are usually not very sharp, but rather presentable and highly reliant on the speechwriters, strategist and teleprompters (not to forget plastic surgeons, make up artists and campaign directors). These are not employed nor chosen by the people or society, the "candidates" are prepicked by the elite(in the current case Obama and Romney by Bilderberg/CFR/Trilateral Commission)

So these Media "people" are copies and dependent not only on money but on the feedback to their role and image - do not expect but lies, fakery and myth from such junkies.

They passed school as repeaters, they were trained like Pavlovian dogs to do the same simple task and react in programmed manner over and over ... Light on - saliva drippin'. The stupid ones are not even able to comprehend their own behavior after decades in business, so no one should expect these poor ones to be able to think outside of the box and hence not recognize anything outside of their keen limits ...

When Neocons & Facism go to sleep, they look under the bed for Ron Paul and "WE THE PEOPLE"!

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." M.Mead

Well said.

I can add nothing else to your comments. My thoughts echo yours. It is for the reasons you stated that articles such as this are so numerous and similar.
At what point do we ignore such media altogether? Are we duty bound to question them when such articles are published? If so, we can be kept quite busy be their, as you so precisely put it, stupidity.

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." Benjamin Franklin

We now have a new top tier...

We now have a new top tier...

He won the Virgin Islands...

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/12/ron-paul-virgin-isl...

Even the MSM admits that delegates are more important than the popular vote[from the article]:
"Unfortunately for Paul, under the complicated rules governing the U.S. Virgin Island caucus, he won only a single delegate to Mitt Romney’s seven -- which in the fight to win the presidential nomination is what really counts. One other delegate has not yet committed to a candidate."

MSM lie about polls GOP + Rummy cheat the vote

But they are haveing a hard time to buisness as usual cheat the delegete count.

MSM GOP organized crime.

sovereign

Yet to win?

Why do they insist on repeating we've never won yet...it's just simply untrue and proveable now. Look at Iowa for example.

Or Minnesota!

We've taken 21 out of our 40 total delegates so far, and haven't even had our state convention yet!

They will stay mum about Ron's delegates

The MSM knows that there are decisive primaries yet to be held and the last thing they want is to give Paul any traction; especially against such a weak opponent as Romney.

Imagine if stories about the past several state conventions were front and center in the MSM news. Then imagine if, partially as a result of the coverage, Paul began trending higher in the polls against Romney. And then imagine what would happen if Ron won a primary 1:1 against Romney.

The battle for the nomination could be thrown wide open.

“Wasting a vote is sometimes voting for somebody that you don't really believe in."
-Ron Paul

The reason Ron Paul hasn't won a straw poll

is because they are being manipulated. Much harder to cheat and steal at a convention with the people voting staring right in your face. This is why Ron Paul is winning all the conventions, it's a direct reflection of how the straw polls SHOULD HAVE GONE...Makes sense.
