Excuse Me, Can You get the Knife out from my Back?

After complaints about Rule 11 being broken by RNC Chairman Preibus.
Jesse Benton puts out a statement saying he agreed to work with the RNC and this so called Victory Organization to beat Obama.
and he went on to Say
Chairman Priebus has always treated Dr. Paul and our team with respect, and we appreciate his leadership. He has been an outstanding chairman and has our full confidence.”
Well Jesse He Respects us so much he went on Meet the press today 5/13/2012
and Said;
I don’t know what Rand, what he meant by that,” Reince Priebus said on NBC's "Meet the Press." “I’m here to defend, I’ll defend the Republican party and I can defend our nominee Mitt Romney.”


I think Jesse needs RECANT his statement effectively Immediately!
Priebus is Breaking the Rules and needs to be Held Accountable!

We don't need their Victory Organazation,
Ron Paul has Us the Real Grassroots!!

Rule 11 violation-picture worth a thousand words

And the rp campaign is ok with this?

Please subscribe to smaulgld.com

I understand the possibility that this is good cop bad cop

But what he said was bullshit, they broke the rules and really I'm pretty sick of Benton in general I wanted him gone back in August. Overly forgiving nepotism is Ron's weakest personal area.

very good argument as to why he made that statement

We always hear and speak about "blowback" I'm sure it works in a good way aswell


the delayed Romney accounts are being set off in DP like time bombs. After all, how else would you want to depress and discourage people to distance themselves from the Paul campaign? Or to ask die hard Paul delegates to stay home.

The banksters don't seem to understand, Paul represents us, we don't represent Paul.

The Libertarian Party, irrelevant since 1971.

I would like to see Wead weigh in on this


You're really one to kill the

You're really one to kill the messenger aren't you. Benton was speaking on behalf of Ron Paul, the campaign, doing his job. He wasn't acting independently. Use your imagination and try to understand the possible benefits for taking this type of action before concluding that it is a loss.


its a trap to get supporters to quit.why,because we are kicking mitts a$$ all the way to the fl convention.and they know it.keep supporting the cause and dont take anything to heart,if you dont hear it out of the mans mouth (Dr.Paul)then it aint so


I'm looking for the video of

I'm looking for the video of "Meet the Press" I would like to see this myself, If anyone has the link please post it

Never mind I found it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpdsyWsPrcc

I thought Jesse was on it, I misunderstood

Romney is for diginty of all people lol

Except the guy he thought was gay in school and he held the guy down and shaved his head.. lol

Frauds on all sides.. only one True human being running and that's Dr.Paul.

Hey Mindy......

You need to think down the road a little bit.....

What's happening in just a few short months?

The Republican National Convention.

It's going to a rough go for the delegates down in Tampa. Ask the delegates who were at the 2008 convention. Intimidation....harassment...etc. If you think there has been dirty play in OK, ME and AZ.....wait til the Convention gets going.

People....we have to realize what battles to fight...and what battles to leave alone. This is a battle to leave alone.

Benton is doing the right thing by being diplomatic.....saying nice things about Priebus...buttering him up so to speak....with about 14 weeks to the Convention.

How did the great Will Rogers define Diplomacy?

Rogers said that.....

""Diplomacy is the art of saying "Nice doggie" until you can find a rock.""

And this is exactly what Benton is doing...placating...not making waves...complimenting...etc.

And then come August 27, we hit that "doggie" with the biggest rock we got. :)

Remember everyone.....this is chess...not checkers. Think ahead.


I understand the chess game theory. After reading about this, I just think maybe we need to also think a game of "Poker"
you Know the "Poker face"... Why even release a statement??
I understand your statement about picking battles. I think he should
of left this one alone. :)

No One But Ron Paul 2012!

Hey Mindy.....

He released a statement because he is being diplomatic. He's saying things Priebus wants to hear... "Great Chariman...(Priebus).."Has our full confidence" .....etc.

Benton is keeping things nice and smooth....he's playing nice. But come August 27th...its no more Mr. Nice guy. :)


Your kinda of winning me over with your argument but I still think
sometimes its best to say nothing at all.

No One But Ron Paul 2012!

We've been mounting extremely

We've been mounting extremely strong attacks on Priebus for the rule violation. It may have been necessary to turn down the heat. Who knows what the reality truly is? Maybe this is a retroactive statement and the result of some type of beneficial deal... Why else would this info be released now? There is a precise and fundamental reason for this. We really don't have the information to make a judgement so the best we can do is remain positive and keep the faith. I have total confidence in Benton just as I do with Paul.

It seems very clever to me on

It seems very clever to me on many levels.

Long past time to start

Long past time to start swinging, Jesse.

Aggggg....Jesse is just being polite and giving them enough

rope to hang themselves. Think about it...what good will it do for Jesse to bad mouth someone to the Spin Doctors of the MainStreamMedia? The media would only use his words against him.

By saying what he did, they can't touch him. But....But....lets just wait a bit and see what the campaign is doing behind the scenes about rule 11. Give it a bit of time and keep your faith in the campaign.

But Why then

make a statement at all? Just keep doing business as usual. To release that statement as an answer to Rule 11 complaint seems odd.

No One But Ron Paul 2012!

devide and conquer. So, they

devide and conquer. So, they may have fooled Jesse Benton. Or, maybe Jesse Benton flubbed it on purpose. Or, maybe this is all part of the plan. No sense in dwelling on this unless you have evidence of Jesse Benton's malicious intent. It comes down to whether this was a success, or a failure and either way we must move forward without missing a step.

Trying to force Jesse Benton to recant a statement is first of all, stupid. Second, it's counter-productive. If Jesse Benton did approve via email (or whatever) and they have the proof, we would look like FOOLS trying to pursue anything against Reince Priebus.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a table to go setup here in California.

Wait, what were we talking about?

I think quitting?

Or pulling the stick out of our Gina's! :)

Go set that table up and get us some votes and delegates! That's what we should be focusing on.

Oh don't worry.. I was mocking the negative attempts to derail

I wouldn't quite if they started rounding up DP people for FEMA camps.. Nothing gonna deter me from fighting and I mean that in all ways possible if need be.
