Ron Paul Effect Costing Romney the Election

OK. I get it that Romney would alienate his financial support from the Sheldon Adelson's of the world if he didn't take a pro-war, Israel-first positions. And Romney would not be able to compete. But why so vindictive? He was confident he wouldn't lose to Ron Paul. Why not have an honest delegate count and allow Ron to win 200 or so of them? It would have meant a lot to Ron Paul supporters to be clear victors over #2,3,4,5,and 6. None of us who heard the John "Bomb Iran" McCain speech knowing that Ron Paul had been cheated out of his time on the floor could then turn around and vote for Mitt.
