About Booing the RomneysSubmitted by abstain on Sun, 05/13/2012 - 12:23
I attended the Mass GOP 9th District Caucus a few weeks ago.
Each nominee for delegate got 3 minutes to speak. One delegate, a local sheriff, gave a minute of his time to play a short greeting to Massachusetts from Mrs. Romney.
Suddenly, one or two people booed loudly from the back of the auditorium. I assumed it was a Ron Paul supporter, but maybe not. I don't know. This is something Dr. Paul would not condone. Anne Romney has 5 sons, I have 3. Believe me dissing her is just not cool.
This is an example of the vitriol that will be spewed at us by cocktail republicans and rhinos if we go this route: http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=680706
Please…please, we are better than this. Talking about individual liberty, peace, the Constitution and how it brings us together is enough. Divide and conquer is the administration's path, and it will lead to defeat.
I can understand trying to get Mitt's son off the stage, but booing? Maybe if we all stood and held up a Ron Paul sign? Could we use the rules to get equal time? Surely there is a better way. We have to develop better strategies or Tampa will be a nightmare.
I hope you all have some comments. I need some help on how to think about this.
