Election 2012

Romney campaign and GOP leadership are corrupt and lawless!

TAMPA, Florida (PNN) - August 28, 2012 - Delegates were finding their seats on the floor of the Republican National Convention on Tuesday when a commotion broke out in the back corner, near the Maine contingent.

Delegates and audience members erupted into chants of “Let him speak!” and “Seat them now!” Some waved signs proclaiming, “I am the Ron Paul Revolution,” and burst forth with a soccer ditty: “Olé, olé, olé, olé. Ron Paul, Ron Paul!”

Onto the floor, surrounded by cameras, microphones, stage lights and a crush of escorts and fans, strode Paul himself, in a purple lei bestowed upon him by Hawaii delegates. One delegate asked whether the libertarian gadfly came to stir up trouble for Mitt Romney.

Paul smiled. His message, he said, was unchanged: “Liberty, prosperity and peace.”

But peace was not on the agenda in the Tampa Bay Times Forum this afternoon.

The Romney campaign had conspired to stifle the Paul rebellion by denying him a speaking role, expediting the roll call, unlawfully changing party rules, and even illegally unseating Paul delegates from Maine and other states. But as Romney and the Republicans have learned repeatedly this week, politics does not always go according to plan.

As the new rules disenfranchising the Paul delegates came to a vote, shouts of “no!” and a cascade of boos poured from Paul supporters across the hall. Maine delegates at one end of the arena and Texas delegates at the other began chanting, “Point of order!” Demonstrators shouted down the next speaker, a Republican National Committee member from Puerto Rico, and party chairman Reince Priebus hammered his gavel, pleading for quiet. A Nevada delegate raised his middle finger at Priebus and called him a “[expletive] tyrant.”

Convention officials evicted some of the loudest demonstrators, who filled the hallways with shouts of “fraud!” and “farce!” and “sheep!” Paul supporters inside the hall resumed their booing and cries of “no!” - this time directed at House Speaker John Boehner (Ohio), who had taken the gavel.

The outcome of the dispute, in Romney’s favor, was never in doubt. But the episode illustrated a recurrent tension for the Republican nominee: the orderliness of his world colliding with chaotic reality. Romney is by many accounts a control freak, a stickler for rules and order.

For example, Reporters in Romney’s press corps were stunned on Monday to receive an e-mail from the campaign informing them that the candidate and his entourage would fly to Tampa on Tuesday for Ann Romney’s speech but directing the journalists not to report this news.

When reporters rebelled, the campaign said they could disclose only that Romney “will be in Tampa” - a condition the reporters also rejected. This follows recent episodes in which Republican aides told reporters from television stations in Colorado and Ohio that they could not ask the candidate about certain topics.

Romney is discovering that he cannot control Isaac, he can’t control the press corps and he certainly can’t control Paul supporters.

The dispute continued through the roll call vote, as state delegations announced well over 100 votes for Paul; the dissident’s supporters booed and shouted at the clerk, who refused to acknowledge Paul’s tally.

The Romney campaign and GOP leadership provide more outlaws and criminals in the lawless Fascist Police States of Amerika.
