Had A Talk With A Romney Supporter Today After Ron's Message Was ReleasedSubmitted by removed-by-requ... on Mon, 05/14/2012 - 18:20
My brother called me while I was at work to tell me about Ron's latest message. I was not surprised. Over the last few weeks, My brother and I had been discussing the possibility of Ron no longer wasting his time with Primaries.....and focusing solely on state conventions, delegates...etc.
Anyways....Frank the electrician happen to be at the warehouse today. Frank and I have had spirited conversations over the last few months. Frank has constantly brought up the fact the Paul has not won a primary....and I've done my best to explain the delegate process to him. Frank is a Romney supporter. And his favorite line to use is.."we have to unite together to beat Obama. We can't afford 4 more years of him." Ya know....the typical Hannity talking points.
Here's how the conversation went......
Frank: So much for Paul huh? He called it quits. He's finished.
Me: Yeah...just found out from my brother.
Frank: It's best for the party. Romney was going to be the nominee anyway. Your guy seemed like he was already out of the race anyway. Are you going to vote for Romney in June?
(This is where I decided to play dumb for the rest of the conversation)
Me: Probably, not. Maybe I'll vote for Constitution Party or some other party.
Frank: And what about your big plans to be a delegate and go to Florida for the convention? And what about your brother, he's stuck going to the convention right. what state is he in again?
Me: No reason for me to be a delegate now that Paul is out. And my brother lives in Maine. Yeah, he is a delegate. But he told me on the phone that since Paul is out, he's probably going to quit being a delegate. He doesn't want to waste his time and money going down to Florida for no reason.
Frank: Yeah, that would be a waste a time. I'll tell you one thing....my wife's sister is going to be thrilled.
Me: Why's that? Is she a Romney supporter who hates Ron Paul? lol
Frank: No, she doesn't hate the guy. She is a Romney supporter. She told me that she was trying to be a delegate, but that it was a pain in the a**. Now that Paul is out....she doesn't have to worry about it.
Me: Yep. Tell her I said not to worry about it. Tell her I said Congrats on being the nominee.
Frank: Will do.....take care kid.
End of conversation...................
Let's hope all the Romney folks are thinking just like Frank. :)
