Is is customary

It is customary for the candidate himself to give the concession speech, not the campaign chairman. And why concede at all and then not end the campaign, and then ask for money!?! The idea that this is supposed to fool the highly paid and experienced professional strategists of the Romney campaign is weak. If anything, it will excite the Romney delegates with the smell of blood on the water and make them more enthusiastic. I am not ready to believe the accusations of venality being brought against Benton and Wead, but would very much like an explanation for the behavior of the official campaign over the past two weeks. We grassroots Ron Paul supporters will continue to limp along through Tampa, but any good feelings we might have had about the paid leadership will not likely survive, nor can we expect any support from their end.
