    Of course NV casted 17 votes for Ron Paul and 5 for Romney..... Maine gave Ron Paul 10 votes... AZ gave him 3 votes...

    That would not happen if Nevada had a primary rather then a caucus!


    Things just got a little awkward during the Republican National Convention, as Ron Paul supporters burst out into protest and shouted "point of order" in protesting the RNC's determination not to seat Paul delegates from Maine.

    "Point of order! Seat them now! We've been robbed!" Paul supporters shouted.

    The Paul supporters' chants were countered by Romney supporters chanting "U-S-A!"

    RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, who looked rather bewildered throughout the entire ordeal, repeatedly asked for calm banging his gavel on the podium.

    Paul delegates revolted on the floor afterward. Maine delegates walked out, chanting "As Maine goes, so goes the nation!"

    There is one inaccuracy in that quote. Ron Paul supporters tend to be revolting no matter where they are, not just on the convention floor.

    You beat me to it!

    Is it me or do they remind you of spoiled brats that after getting the butts beat (for the umpteenth time) they want to take their toys and go home? I am so hoping old age takes him so I dont have to see his mug or his ronbots ever again.

    On the other hand the Ronbots do vote and we can't afford to alienate any potential voters.. even the Ronbots.

    If you listen to the ronbots here(or Ronulans as I call them), they already have alienated themselves and are already saying that they aren't going to vote for Romney just to make some silly point.

    I hope they enjoy it when Obama makes their lives miserable if he has that last 4 years as a lame duck, when he can do whatever he wants.

    I think we had one gentleman today say that he was finally convinced it would be best to give his vote to Romney, I hope others see what needs to be done.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Sorry FG, but HUH? Romney? Really?

    McStain lite... as far as I'm concerned. Ryan gives some hope, after the appointment....Romney was forced down our throats plain and simple.
