Of course it does. Its called a bluff. Doug Weed and Benton have made the day for thousands of idiot neocons who smugly believe they've won some sort of victory. Now that Ron Paul has dropped, Romney is safe, the banks are safe. They can save their money and not have to bother showing up to expensive and lengthy conventions, content that all those evil boogie men and their women and children will continue getting bombs dropped on their families a world away so neocons they can feel safe while TSA goons feel up their wives.
Let them be smug. They won't be so smug when Romney gets wiped out at the convention by all the Paul supporters who they thought had dropped out.
