8/23/12 I just got off the Delegate/Alternate Conference CallSubmitted by entropypressStAt on Thu, 08/23/2012 - 23:13
Total buzz kill.
More questions were asked (or were allowed to be asked) about busing and VIP passes than what our delegate count really is. And how the Platform went. Or what exactly we should do on the floor.
Apparently, according to the Campaign. RON PAUL WILL NOT ACCEPT a nomination from the floor.
Basically at this point I guess he considers it not cool to be flaunting his support when in that controlled environment it will look very small.
They never answered if MA was settled and alluded to the Credentials Committee issue - which John Tate was meeting with the RP committee members and could not participate in the call I was on.
There was a lot of talk about when you speak to the press answer the question YOU WISHED they had asked. Just jump right to good stuff that you want to say. And to remember that you are representing a movement. They don't want wild eyed - pissed off- people getting on camera. I see their point - but I for one am, in fact, fairly irritated.
They didn't say endorse Romney...but after Monday simply say you are looking forward to bringing the party back bla bla bla... and firmly planting the flag of liberty in the republican party.
Someone asked if Ron Paul would be endorsing Romney and they said, "good question."
If Ron Paul ends up endorsing Romney I am going to flip my lid.
