Tampa, FL--It's Gettin' Hot in Herre!
Most people wouldn't know it, but even though the 2012 Republican National Convention has only been in session for a short amount of time, there has been a ton of stuff going on. First off, before the convention even started, there was a lot of committee meetings and things of the like going on. That's where the interesting stuff has been occurring.
As I mentioned on United Liberty, there has been a lot of BS going on including the GOP's inexplicable decision to be A-holes to the good doctor himself, Ron Paul. Naturally, with their way of thinking, they decided that it would be best to lie, cheat, and steal their way to a nice scripted infomercial for Mitt Romney and company. That sucks! And it's weak as hell. However, they saved their best for later...
On Friday, the Rules Committee, headed up by none other than Jabba himself, John Sununu, decided they would just basically do away with grassroots activity, all together. They probably thought it would work. Why not? Everything else that the establishment has done has worked. But they didn't count on other people and groups not going for it. Like the entire Texas delegation, Washington delegation, FreedomWorks, and a plethora of other groups and organizations.
So, just this Monday evening, on the eve of the convention, the establishment worked out a "compromise" that changes the worst aspects of the aforementioned decision in order to dispel any perception of disunity, which has been, apparently, their goal all along. But...I think that things just might be getting started. I think more and more people are getting fed up with this crap emanating from Romney and the establishment. I think we might be on the verge of something very interesting. I think it's about to get hot in Tampa.
It's gettin' hotter, baby!
Now the Romney forces are removing unfriendly Rules Committee members.
The GOP is obviously a more fractured party than most people are thinking. That's without even getting into this whole Romney power play thing. This is getting very interesting...
