Henry Herford Jr. was elected by an overwhelming majority as new convention chair. Mr. Villere, who had appointed himself the convention chairman, refused to yield. When delegates began turning their chairs around, Mr. Herford rose to call the convention to order. Mr. Villere then convinces police to forceably remove Mr. Herford, who is injured and sent to the hospital! Video at source. (My first post. Member since 2004!)
GOPe thugs like the rule of law when it’s in their favor.
Our convention here in Maine was contentious, but not violent.
However, the level of animosity and hostility are palpable in the town and county meetings since.
For the most part, it's not about ideology on the part of the ‘old guard’, it's about losing power.
Not sure. Suspect the woman who wrote the article is a Dem who want to make the GOP Look Stupid. (often not that hard)
I have to admit I am seriously disturbed and mad a the GOP “leadership” for their antics leading up to this point. I am convinced that Mitt Romney is a terrible candidate for President. Not that he is a terrible person, but he is a gun grabbing Big Government Lib in GOP cover.
I hear a train whistle, we are being railroaded and I despise it.
I leave Wednesday for the TX GOP Convention in Ft. Worth. Pray to god that ours is not like this.
I admit I “did” vote for Ron Paul in the primary. Not a candidate of choice, but in my opinion better than Mitt Romney. (Yes, I know some of Ron Pauls positions are nuts)
One of the MANY reasons I will not only NOT vote for romney if he gets out of the convention with the nomination, I WILL work AGAINST him and the GOP-e and do EVERYTHING i possibly can to make sure that the GOP-e NEVER gets their socialist elected president.
These stupid F’ers in the GOP need a serious ass kicking.
Sounds like the LA GOP isn’t following their rules.
these were radical far left paul nutters trying to take over the LA GOP and the GOP fought back.
The paul nutters are not used to that.
they have gotten away with pauhing around the meek old people and seized power !
they want to reek chaos at the gop convention by taking over gop delegates !
The Sovietization of the formerly grand old party continues apace.
The Paulistas have caused disruptions everywhere!! I’d like to break all their hips!
No one is any less a Paul supporter than I.
But this is beyond outrageous.
The rigged game is now being enforced via police power.
Now that the State Primaries are almost completed, it is important to ask if Moderate Mitt from Mass. has proven himself to be able to beat unqualified, incompetent, arrogant, Marxist Obama?
The RNC made the Primary Campaign rules, and so the RNC can change those same rules. No Federal Regulator will be involved, I guarantee it.
Currently Romney is just a coin-flip away from losing to Obama in November.
IF Romney has only a slight chance to win in November, THEN it is incumbent upon the RNC to improve the odds by choosing to DUMP Romney and endorse a stellar Dark Horse.
Romney would have to really struggle to beat a stellar Dark Horse for the Nominee position in an OPEN Convention in Tampa.
The State Primaries were a test run, and Romney showed us that he is a weak Candidate to beat Obama, the most flawed Democrat ever to run for re-election to the most powerful job in the World.
Agreed, it is a daunting task for an etch-a-sketch, mealy-mouthed, Moderate to confront the REALITY of actually losing to Obama, but if Romney cant change between now and August then he doesnt deserve the RNC Nomination.
BTW, The GOP-Elite are part of the problem, NOT part of the solution.
The Louisiana RINOs have proven how difficult it will be to take back the Republican Party, even with a well-organized, and legal plan.
However, it will be well worth the effort to have someone other than Socialist Romneycare Obamalite to run against Communist Obamacare Obama.
And so the 2012 battle against the RINO Wing of the Republican Party begins in Shreveport - - - - .
Obama or Obamalite?
That choice is just not RIGHT!
Should we cowardly bow
And hold our Noses?
The time has come
To make our choices!
DUMP The Romney
While we can,
For after Tampa
- - - - - - - - - - -
Ron Paul began the Second Tea Party in Boston in 2007.
It has taken 5 years to build up enough strength to try to wrest control of the Republican Party away from the RINO Wing that gave us McCain and now Romney.
A Brokered or OPEN Convention in Tampa is our ONLY hope of DUMPING Romney before he loses to Obama in November, by 10 %.
BTW, are YOU Taxed Enough Already?
Care to join in the fun?
