I Negotiate for a Living

And trisport's logic is correct. This whole thing has me wondering if Mr. Smack has not gotten some under the table assurances of future actions which will benefit him PERSONALLY, because he got nothing for the movement (the word of Mr. Priebus is of no value) by going the extra step of nominating him.

This again calls into question the validity of working through a system which rewards the most duplicitous and self-serving. It is too hierarchical. We might as well try to join the Gambinos in the hopes of "reforming them from the inside." Again, I negotiate for a living and I am not opposed to compromise- when it actually advances our interests.

These guys will only respect the power to hurt them, and Mr. Smack just traded a lot of that away for nothing of tangible value- again unless there is more here than he is telling us. In that case what he tells us here is just, pardon the pun, "talking smack."

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)
