Fox News Credits Ron Paul's Maine Win!

AUGUSTA, Maine – With Mitt Romney's nomination all but decided, Ron Paul supporters wrested control of the Maine Republican Convention and elected a majority slate supporting the Texas congressman to the GOP national convention, party officials said as the two-day convention neared its end Sunday. The results gave the Texas congressman a late state victory.

The names of 15 at-large delegates from Maine to the GOP nominating convention in Tampa, Fla., were posted Sunday as votes for the other delegation seats remained undecided. Maine is allotted a total of 24 delegates to the national convention.

"It's certainly a significant victory," said Jim Azzola of South Portland, Cumberland County coordinator for Paul. The votes were to become finalized when the convention closes.

A local fox station here

A local fox station here acknowledged it this morning too. Of course they start off the report saying how he hasn't won any states (primaries), but they did mention Maine, and that he was still in the race, and then some footage of the Texas rally from yesterday.

No need to click on the Fox link.

You get the jist of it here. They finally did a semi-positive article and they still don't deserve our business. Boycott the MSM. We are giving them too much traffic and allowing them to gain advertiser revenue and continue to grow. Shut them out.


new meme!


In 2008 McCain "hijacked" Maine's convention

This article states:

In the 2008 contest, Romney won 52 percent of the Maine caucuses, more than double John McCain's 21 percent and Paul's 19 percent. But McCain left the 2008 state convention with 20 delegates, leaving Paul with one. Three were uncommitted.


I don't recall anyone accusing McCain's supporters of "hijacking" the convention!


But will they?

But will they even mention it to the masses on TV? I'll bet they don't even mention it except to spin it down.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.


Love seeing the RP support in the comments.

"The Price for Ignoring Ron Paul"

by Szandor Blestman
May 4, 2012

So, I've been writing about Ron Paul a lot lately. Well, there's not a lot being said about him on the establishment media who decided long ago to ignore him, so I figure why not write about him? He's drawing large crowds at rallies. He's getting lots of delegates to bring with him to the Republican convention. He has, in fact, won more delegates than any other candidate from some of the caucus states where the vote was just a poll, nothing more, and it's the delegates that matter. That's news worthy.

Don't post the entire article.

Please cut down to 2 or 3 paragraphs! The goober-mint rules on fair use dictate only a brief quote is allowed.



I will be more concious next time.


I just got soooo excited!
