About the RNC messing with Texas to stop Santorum…
Alice Linahan comments thusly:
Lisa as I was saying in the chat room last night on the “WePickRick” radio show. The one stopping this and the bully on the play ground is Pete Sessions who has come out and endorsed Mitt Romney. He sounds like Eddie Haskell and is just as deceiving.
Don’t Mess with Texas!! #GameOn #IAMSIGNIFICANT
You may remember Pete Sessions from his recommendation that the GOP adopt Taliban “insurgency” tactics.
For most of us, this election is about beating Obama. For the RNC, it’s about letting Romney have his “turn” because he came in 2nd place in 2008. Because it’s Mitt Romney’s “turn” they are pulling out all the stops to make sure he is the nominee. The problem is, Mitt Romney cannot win against Barack Obama. We all know this. We all know that the only time in the last century that the Republican Party has succeeded in defeating a Democratic incumbent president was by running a conservative: Ronald Reagan. We also ALL KNOW Mitt Romney’s huge deficits in the electability department.
Almost a year ago, in May, 2011, which is when I first jumped on board with Rick Santorum and when few had yet even really looked at the Santorum candidacy, Joseph Curl wrote in The Washington Times:
And, oh yeah — former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who couldn’t even defeat a weak Sen. John McCain for the nomination in 2008 and who has a health-care problem the size of Texas (striking, too, how he’s also from the same state where another nominee, Democrat John F. Kerry, hailed — and he lost badly to a vulnerable president in 2004).
Despite Rush Limbaugh’s “once more into the breach” bravado that Mr. Obama is beatable (which he’s said, at last count, 9,647 times), the best candidates have walked. And don’t expect Sarah Palin to take one for the team: Her chances are far better in 2016, and any day now, she’ll also announce that she’s going to sit this one out.
Which means it’s 1996 all over again for the Republicans. They’ll nominate Mr. Romney — Motto: “Eh, It’s His Turn” — and he’ll lose in a landslide. And there doesn’t look like there’s anything — or more importantly, anyone — who can stop it.
Now, we know. Rick Santorum can stop it. Texans know this and Texas will make sure the RNC does not bully them out of their winner-take-all status just so Mitt Romney can have his “turn”.
