"Paul's bid to be nominated for GOP president ends" or so those at foxnews.com say.

"Republican Rep. Ron Paul’s bid to be nominated for president at the party’s national convention ended Saturday when he failed to win enough delegates at Nebraska’s state GOP convention.
...
Getting enough candidates also would have allowed him to officially address convention attendees with a 15-minute nominating speech.
Paul had won a plurality of delegates in four other states: Iowa, Maine, Minnesota and Louisiana. However, the libertarian needed a fifth state to secure the speaking slot so he focused his efforts on Nebraska, the last to hold a GOP convention, according to The Hill.

Paul must now be invited to take part in official convention events. He reportedly still plans to go to Tampa with hundreds of his enthusiastic supporters."

Pretty HI-larious dont you think? Oh wait... thats right, you do think. Fox is now going to make it appear as if "Paul must now be invited to take part in official convention evemts." NEWSFLASH fox hello stop overexercising your 1st amendment right to lie. Its as blatant as the makeup Oreilly wears el oh el. Paul already has the 5 states needed and regardless of your little fairytail imagination world that yall live in, where things can just change on a whim of a story hot out your @$$.

Bottom line Fox news, Dont kid yourselves, Paul already has the required plurality of 5 states, hell he has more than 5 states you imbeciles. He does not have to hope and pray he gets invited as you say, he already is going per rule 40b of the RNC rules, but I bet you spin it as oh the RNC surprisingly invites him or something dumb and naive in nature.

To rub your own nasty foot more in your own mouths, or both feet rather, here is your own footage from when Paul actually DID get his 5th required plurality earlier this spring: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EttnVTtsoo&feature=player_em...

PS
http://thereal2012delegatecount.com/ shows santorum with a plurality in Alabama (22), Kansas (33), Mississippi (13), Tennessee (29), and would have a 5th state with Alaska but he tied for plurality with 8 there.

Looks like a brokered convention to me, it shows only 419 actual delegates leaning towards rMoney. 0 BOUND delegates for ALL candidates. As well as Ron Paul with plurality in 6 definite states: Colorado (18), Iowa (23), Louisiana (27), Maine (21), Minnesota (32), Nevada (22), and with Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, and Massachusetts being unclear/unknown.

Tampa time! see yall there!!!

Isn't this type of incredably

false reporting criminal?

That might be nice, but it

That might be nice, but it was already argued by their lawyers that they deal in opinion, not fact. And apparently corporations are still people, so they are "protected".

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Just one more attempt to keep our delegates from attending.

Ignore and PRESS FORWARD

Don't click on the link, don't send traffic to MSM sites, especially FAUX news.

Whether or not he won Nebraska

He would have to be invited anyway. He and most of his delegates won't get anywhere near the building without the OK by the Romney Victory crew. This is what Ron Paul was saying on the Cavuto interview the other day. Go back and listen to what he says about the RNC and the nominee's campaign having a split.

If he got a plurality in Nebraska, they would say that the delegation in Louisiana won't be seated. They probably won't anyway. The only real issue is whether or not they seat the delegations from Maine, Minnesota and Iowa. If they think the delegate are going to try to do real business on the floor, they won't get seated. Some of you will be having to face this hard truth here in the next couple weeks. The email that went out to delegates the other day was probably written by a staffer, but was told by Ron himself to give it to them straight up.

And if by some miracle the delegates are unbound, Ron Paul may get about 300 votes. But that isn't even the bad part. As soon as the vote takes place. Someone will make a motion to make the Rominee vote unanimous, and there aren't going to be the numbers there to stop them.

Paul already has the five states?

What's the fifth? They stole Massachussetts remember. What's the fifth state that Dr. Paul has a plurality of delegates in besides the four mentioned by Fox?
