The Mainstream Media Calls It

http://news.yahoo.com/ron-pauls-delegate-insurgency-ends-neb...

Ron Paul's delegate insurgency has come to an end.

Supporters of the libertarian GOP presidential candidate fell short at the Nebraska GOP convention, where they had hoped to out-organize Mitt Romney's delegates and push Paul over a critical threshold that would have ensured him an official presence and speaking slot at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., in August.

As the last state where Republicans will hold a convention in which delegates are up for grabs, Nebraska represented the last chance for Paul's supporters.

Instead, Nebraska Republicans elected a slate of Mitt Romney delegates to represent the state in Tampa. Paul's supporters won only two of Nebraska's 35 national delegates, according to Laura Ebke, who leads the Nebraska chapter of the Republican Liberty Caucus and who has led Paul supporters' effort to win delegates in the state.

Along with delegates from Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, and Minnesota, Nebraska could have given Paul the support of a plurality of delegates in five states; according to Republican National Committee rules, Paul would have been officially eligible as a candidate for the nomination at the Tampa convention. Organizers would be required to grant Paul's faction up to 15 minutes for a nominating speech.

Media Meme : "He Just Needs To Win One More State''

Yes, the meme was set and scripted in advance, as usual, so they could call it over after Nebraska. Rachael Maddow just got a jump on it and many here were praising her coverage and helped spread the meme!

Review Manify called it correctly, watch here:

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

They ALL LIE!

F#@k the Mainstream Media!!!

JB4LBRTY!

Don't forget!

It's all about the money & power! They could care less about the truth! And whoever can deceive the Americans the best gets the prime spots and the most promotions! So funny, but so not!

Media is not correct

You only need a plurality of open primary or caucus states, The supreme court already ruled 20 years ago that open primary delegates cannot be bound.

Also Alaska might still be able to reconvene their convention one more time, and we don't know Texas numbers.

The Media Is Not Correct. Understatement Of The Year.

Television Is A Weapon Of Mind Destruction.

The False God At The Altar Of Every Home.

It will fall...like all False Prophets fall under the weight of their own behavior and lies.

Ron Paul Won 5 States Already

He carries Colorado with 18 delegates to Romney's 16. He didn't need Nebraska but it would have been nice.

No.

We don't have Colorado. CO has 36 delegates and you need 19 delegates to have a plurality assuming there are only two candidates.

These are the results:
http://www.cologop.org/assembly-results/

14 delegates unpledged
13 delegates pledged to Romney
6 delegates pledged to Santorum
3 superdelegates pledged to Romney

Romney has 16 delegates
Unpledged has 14 delegates
Santorum has 6 delegates

In order to carry Colorado, we will need ALL 14 unpledged delegates AND at least 5 of the 6 Santorum delegates.

If just 2 Santorum delegates go with Romney, we lose.

No one is 100% sure how all 6 Santorum delegates will vote.

What about...

What about http://www.thereal2012delegatecount.com/? My understanding is that all numbers on that site are based on confirmed delegates that have been awarded at the conventions. They show Paul with 18 and Romney with 16 in Colorado.

Ron Paul lost. I don't get

Ron Paul lost. I don't get why he gave up at the last minute and did not even go to Nebraska. I'm really disappointed now. Maybe he is just a shill.

Ron Paul has not given up!

He will only give up if we give up, and we have not given up yet.

And what about him has "given up"? He still stands by his message. We stand by his message. The shill that you speak of does not exist, because Ron Paul continues to speak of liberty, for liberty!

Do not let your words and motivation become poison.

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.

The Only Thing Left To Do Is Kick Some Romulan A#ss In Tampa

and ignore the lies and crap from Jese benton and company. We must take action on our own, because the campaign has been de -balled by Jesse benton and the other SOB in his guard.

What else can we do. We must find it in ourselves to do what we have to do for america, the right thing and the right thing is to do what is right in our heart for america..with or without the support form Team Jesse Benton 2012...

I'd like to kick his as# but it wouldn't be a fair fight. Someone down the road will walk up to him and kick him in the balls. I hope its some young little boy who has figured out that Benton is a little "behind the back" stabbing traitous bit#h...

Oh. Well, if the media says it's over, it must be over.

Whew, glad they cleared up that situation! We wouldn't want any individual responsibility or personal freedom running around loose. It might start to spread. Then where would we be?

LOVE IT!

I love the fact that MSM thinks it's over and they can go back to their regularly scheduled Obamney programming. If there is a one-in-a-million chance, it is more likely to happen when everyone thinks it won't. NOW is the time to rally around our delegates AND ALTERNATES to Tampa. PLEASE, everyone...find a delegate and ask them what they need to get there. Do they need financial support? Do they need child care? Do they need some bills paid that will rack up while they're gone? We cannot let a single delegate give up because "we won't win." IF the Romney house of cards falls at the right time (even if the chance is slim) and Paul is the right man in place at the right time he can walk away with the nomination. BUT we must have every delegate in place! Keep right on doing the fantastic work you all are doing!

Our US Media : Pig Food For The Masses...I Love That Slop!

You can clean up a pig, put a suit and tie on him and even teach him how to speak to the viewers, but a pig is a pig is a pig.

We have big fat porkers with no redeeming qualities feeding up slop from their trough and we eat the slop until we become as much as a pig as they are.

The people are kept ignorant all of their lives because they are getting slop instead of something wholesome to eat and in time, whatever light that was in america goes out, because there is no real nurishment to digest..

God gave us the internet to use to get the nurishment we need. Because of it there is some hope to awaken the masses, but the hypnotic effect of the tasty slop fed them by the piggies of TV has done its job.

The pigs of slop tell you, no, no, there is no better food than the slop we give you, listen to us for the slop is good for you and we would never tell you the slop is bad for you when it is really good.

Believe us, we love you!

NO. WE CALL IT.

Nope. We Call It.

Why is Television Viewership Collapsing?

BECAUSE WE DO NOT RELY ON THE MEDIA FOR ANYTHING.

It is useless to us.

WE ARE THE NEW GENERATION.

WE USE COMPUTERS. TELEVISION BELONGS IN THE TRASH.
