Romney facing Ron Paul's revenge in battleground Nevada

A disaster. A train wreck. A mess. These are how people in Reno are describing the Republican party in Nevada, a state that used to be solidly red but has turned into a true swing state in recent years.

Nevada's Republican party is in such disarray, thanks to the divisive primary battles, that Mitt Romney had to bring in his own people — known here as Team Nevada or sometimes Team Romney — to provide the campaign heft that the state party would normally give.

In theory, Romney should have a leg up on Barack Obama here. Nevada's unemployment rate is the highest in the country, the housing market crashed in spectacular fashion, and there is a strong Mormon community backing him.

But, at the moment anyway, Romney is facing an uphill battle in a battleground state that has six electoral college votes up for grabs. And the lack of tactical support from his own party has put him at a noticeable disadvantage.

supporting romney

Ron Paul and his supporters were treated like illigitimate step children by the Republican Party organizations both State and national.

Now they want us to shine their shoes and be happy about it.

No thank you! I've carried water for Republican candidates for over 45 years, but no more.

I still remmember back in 2003 when then Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie, who visited the offices of the Manchester Union Leader in New Hampshire, and in the words of a Union-Leader editorial, "said in no uncertain terms that the days of Reaganesque Republican railings against the expansion of federal government are over."

The philosophical problem of big government is not really a politician's fundamental issue. Rather, it's a matter for op-ed pages and in magazines, in books and on radio programs like Limbaugh's.

The Union-Leader says Gillespie made clear that "the Republican Party [no longer stands] for shrinking the federal government, for scaling back its encroachment into the lives of Americans, or for carrying the banner of federalism into the political battles of the day."

Conservatism in the Republican Party is DEAD. There is no place for a Constitutional conservative in this party. Goodbye, and kiss my A_ _.

No Ron Paul supporter should support Romney

Let's see Romney get his a$$ beat!

Romney Never.

Never never never.

Ever.

The Nevada RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION Have Fought Like Lions

The Nevada RON PAUL R[3]VOLUTION Have Fought Like Lions

I watched the entire Nevada Convention on live-stream over two days.

I got very little sleep but I could not stop watching.

I am IN AWE at these people and their unbelievable determination.

And they keep fighting like lions. God Bless Them All.

They are AN EXAMPLE to follow and learn from for all of us.

I am so very proud of them ♥

This is a CROCK!

"But state executives have considerable clout over which delegates can be sent to a national party convention"

WE ELECTED OUR NATIONAL DELEGATES AT OUR STATE CONVENTION! THEY WEREN'T CHOSEN BY THE E-BOARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The reporter is obviously OTL!

But the main omission is the fact that THE GOP NOMINATED THE WRONG GUY!!!!!!! ROMNEY IS UNELECTABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He was in Las Vegas last week, drew 3,000. Obomb'em was in LV this week, drew TEN THOUSAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ron Paul had NOTHING to do with that!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like normal, they have it backward.

The RNC cut national funding to the Nevada GOP and diverted it instead to "Team Nevada" after Paul supporters took over the state GOP; This column failed to mention that crucial fact. Who are the vengeful ones here? The RNC elite lose, so they cut off the money and establish an erzatz party organization to control the funding. Who is to blame for the disarray? It was the RNC that decided it would not cooperate with the new Nevada party leadership. Now, with its funding cut, the Nevada GOP is accused by the RNC of not doing anything to aid its candidates when it was the RNC that withdrew the resources.
Their borrow, spend, bribe, and bomb approach to politics is quickly losing its appeal. If the GOP goes the way of Whig party because it cannot adapt to a new reality, I can't say I am going to shed any tears over it.

Same thing in Iowa. . .

Liberty Republicans took over the State Central Committee and Chair in Iowa during the Caucus and the Republicans in this state are flying apart.

Go over to www.theiowarepublican.com and make a pro Ron Paul comment and they will literally froth at the mouth and climb over each other to spew hatred and show their true colors. Even the editors of the site are biased. And this is the site from which the whole foot-in-mouth 'Stench of Romney' quote started with one of its editors..

This is from just yesterday...

"Just like Rick Santorum had to wash the stench of his Arlen Specter endorsement off, this website has to wash the stench of the new Dem trolls off and Ron Paul had to wash the stench of being a crazy old codger off … Some odors are harder to clean than others …"

Even more than a month after the cheating and power-grab politics of the RNC they can't help but continue the gratuitous alienation of Paul Supporters... but they are paying for it. Even there the tone has shifted from outright contempt to explaining why 'Paulbots' as they like to call us will be responsible for 'America burning'. ROFL

Srsly.... If you're looking for a place to mix it up with redneck SoCons and NeoCons... you can have a field day. Just look for fresh articles about Romney... the threads die after a few days.

Here's the most recent Sunday recap from yesterday:

Blah blah blah Republicans

Blah blah blah Republicans and Democrats. This article reads as if will make a difference who is elected.

The scary part

Is that when Obama wins by 8% margin, the presstitutes and the Obama regime will push hard with the narrative that Obama now has a "mandate" to push for more Marxist policies.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

Maybe

Romney should start giving away free cell phones. Hahaha

skippy

this makes it even more obvious that Romney was . . .

chosen to re-elect Obama--

thugs, both of them--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

The real losers are the

The real losers are the people of Nevada. They wanted freedom. It was ripped away from them and they were given the opposite.

Is the party still working

Is the party still working hard for lower level liberty candidates?

Is the RNC providing any resources

to let them do that?

Not Paul's revenge.

Revenge from the honest patriotic constitution following people who were lied to, cheated, and their candidate for leadership of their nation was stolen from them. The peoples candidate was replacee with a installed Rothschild criminal corporation bankgangster puppet shill who will cary out the NWO depopulation globalest warmongering evil vile agenda laid out for them. Yah thats the real truth. No is my final answer and enlightened disengagement my weapon of choice.

They lust for power, I desire freedom I do not desire permission.

SteveMT's picture

Not only is "Team Nevada" facing Ron Paul's revenge,....

it looks like they are getting Montezuma's Revenge because of what they have done. With all of their crap, the Nevada republicans made life miserable for Ron Paul supporters. Now the direction of this karmic crap is reversed. Thirty-six days to this election is going to be a very longtime for them to suffer. Good.

Romney has already lost 1/3

Romney has already lost 1/3 to 3/3 of the gop/republican vote across the country. He has lost a huge margin of indy's. The only voting block left for the criminal enterprise(rnc,romney and gop establishment) are blacks/hispanics and the illegals.

Romney(liar,cheat and thief) is obama!!

Ron Paul 2016

RNC really screwed Nevada delegates. - But God bless that...

...spokesman for the Nevada delegation who had the guts to name every state Dr. Paul had won in the primaries/caucuses.

He knew the GOP would make him persona non grata and probably kick him out. But he told it like it was.

So I hope Romney goes ahead and wastes lots of his time and money in Nevada.

Because in the end, Nevada is still RON PAUL country!

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."

Excellent article

Thank you for posting

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

As I have been saying since the beginning of the campaign...

WHERE is Romney going to win? Nobody likes him.

Inside The Diebold Machine Perhaps?

Perhaps his "win" will come from inside the Diebold voting machines? After all that's exactly what seemed to be the case for his wins against Paul in the primaries. No??

He was appointed to lose

And nobody knows that better than himself and the Pseudo-Conservatives who seated him. They aren't Republicans or even Americans to be honest. Our system of government is their enemy.

The only tricky part is; how do you run for President without everybody figuring out your a fraud and a puppet who wants to lose. I expect a very embarrassing exchange in the debate which both sides site as the reason Romney loses.

It'll be easier than blaming Libertarians, and at this point, they'd rather not even say the word liberty or Libertarian.

Neo-cons

Want Obama to win. The whole Romney campaign has been a sham.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

And the Neo-cons think

they will have even stronger control over the GOP going into 2016.

Minnesota Mary

It was Mean't

To keep Ron Paul out. Nothing more. That was the whole point of those waste of time shams of debates with the likes of Cain Perry etc. To keep attention off Ron Paul.

skippy

So both horses are owned by the same owner

The anouncer and half the crowd has been paid off. The Owner of the horses is the Judge as well. Now there is the way to choose the leader of the free world. A theif will continue to steal until stopped. Its time we stopped theives from governing us.

sovereign

its funny

because this is insanely easy to believe. But Romney is very good at being a self-destructive sociopath which definitely helps lol.
