Cat and Bags! MSNBC And Binding Delegates!

"Ron Paul’s third campaign for president may not lead to the Texas Congressman being nominated at the Republican Convention in Tampa this August -- notwithstanding a lawsuit filed by supporters in attempt to make that happen -- but, from Maine to Alaska, the “Paul Revolution” has swept state Republican parties.

Out of the national spotlight, Paul activists have mastered obscure local party rules to win key positions of power at state conventions, infiltrating the Republican establishment across the country, including in the key swing states of Iowa and Nevada.

In Massachusetts, they even beat out many prominent pro-Mitt Romney supporters to win spots as Romney delegates. They are informally bound by party rules to vote for Romney still, but the open secret in both parties, is no one is really bound – one of the issues at the heart of the Paul supporters’ lawsuit against the national party."

i think everyone is missing the point...

if there are that many Paul supporters present at the conventions, then how many more must there be? I keep reading how the "few voices" or the "fringe supporters" yet WE all know how large the crowds are and I am here to tell you that even my father-in-law is starting to see the tree for the forest- or however you say that-LOL!!! There must be SO MANY Paul supporters out there that even WE couldn't possibly know. Do the math- if there are enough revolutionaries to make this big of an impact on conventions, then as a general rule, there must be PLENTY more where those came from!

No one can say we're inconsistent!

This group that mastered "obscure local party rules" is the very same group with an appreciation for those "arcane government rules" laid out in the United States Constitution.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

Yet,

"Paul activists have mastered obscure local party rules..."

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.

"Paul activists have mastered

"Paul activists have mastered obscure local party rules to win key positions of power at state conventions"

so when more paul delegates show up than romney delegates it's us exploiting "obscure party rules"

right...

can't you just admit that ron paul is the only republican who actually galvanizes his supporters?

Hey, I read

"may not" win this time, not the usual "will not". Hmmmm, Are the MSM's covering their butts now, just in case? HAHAHA. I love it!

Anthony Terrell has always been fair towards Dr. Paul,

please send him some thanks.

* well, fair-ish as an MSM reporter can be, especially considering he works for MSDNC; who knows, as the longest embedded reporter for RP2012, perhaps Dr. Paul and his loved ones' genuine congeniality were utterly irresistible .o)
