Divisions appearing amongst GOP ranks against RomneySubmitted by Ian56 on Thu, 08/09/2012 - 07:40
(over Andrea Saul comments)
Keep FIGHTING for a brokered convention! Romney is HELPING us with all his screw ups and gaffes. Keep the PRESSURE and heat turned up HIGH on Romney. The more pressure and heat that can be applied the more gaffe's that Romney and his team will make.
Romney is continuing to slide in the polls and questions amongst die-hard GOP are starting to be asked about Romney's nomination in Tampa.
There is a Twitter FireStorm currently raging over this and lots of divisions between different GOP people. Search "Andrea Saul"
Never one to miss an opportunity I am trying to stick red hot needles in the cracks that are appearing. Going for ex Santorum and Gingrich supporters mostly. And generally with Andrea Saul in the post.
Great compilation of GOP divisions
It should have a very easy task to discredit Obama's angle, but Andrea Saul wasn't up to it. She repeated the blatant lie that Romney left Bain in 1999. She plainly does not know her a** from her elbow.
Ann Coulter Demands Andrea Saul Be Fired Or Conservatives Should Boycott Donating to Romney. Some interesting comments in this article.
If you read RedState, and some of the conservative rags, the rage against Romney is so lively I wonder if some conservatives haven't made the conscious choice that Romney is their equivalent of John Edwards, whose campaign will implode with scandal over taxes, Bain, and perhaps, even other stuff we haven't heard yet, so figure it is better to take him out before the convention, to avoid a total disaster for the GOP in November.
Even though most of us have scoffed at the GOP convention replacement scenarios (even though I wrote one up as a thought starter three months ago,) is it possible hard core Republicans figure sticking with Romney all the way through November after a convention lock in could be worse?
8:31 PM PT: A comment by Nailbanger prompted this question which could become quite a bit more significant if true. From my response to to nailbanger below. Could it
.. be possible that hard core conservatives realize that Romney is going to lose, or maybe even become the "John Edwards of the GOP" so it is better for them to cut their losses, now to preserve their own "credibility."
Like it would be better for their long-term reputations if they go down in history as the folks who took down Romney from the inside, rather than let it look like Democrats did it in a November landslide election that we will then use as evidence of public "repudiation" of their right-wing zealotry.
Dramatically, and publicly turning on Romney now could portray Romney as "the loser" rather than "right-wing zealotry" with would otherwise take the hit in November.
