Thank you - I hope the moderator deletes all the posts in which you have been intentionally misrepresenting what is stated in the article.

Basically I am saying 2 things.

A. They decided to depart from the memo after the election to favor Romney
B. They are horribly incompetent for waiting over 20 days, and until after the election to fix a rather material provision in a memo that candidates relied upon.

Neither speaks well of the GOP's ability to run a clean election.



NO, The memo did not state the rules as they were set in February. That is the part you are intentionally misrepresenting.

Ok. I this is the last time I am going to say this and it is in no way a misrepresentation.

One of two scenarios occurred here.

A. The GOP decided not to follow the memo after the election to aid Mitt Romney

B. The GOP sent out an incorrect memo which misstated important materially incorrect information and through their incompetance failed to correct it until after the election when more then 20 days time had lapsed.


I know you and Trace have an irrational love affair with Mitt, but your article, lays this out. Even Romney backer Mr. Cox has stated that what they did doesn't pass the smell test. The fact is you and Trace are the ones misrepresenting this and Trace's despicable comments about my family have earned him the honor of being the only active poster on my ignore list.

I've lost count of how many of these contests the bigwigs have tinkered with to make Romney look better. Let 'em vote, Mr. Rove!

Iowa was outright stolen and it was not to make Romney look better. There are 8 precincts that they still haven't found and they favored Romney more than likely. I don't even see how they legally certified it with this issue not resolved.

Why do you and those of your sort have to always try to belittle someone you disagree with by inferring silly, childish things about them? We all have candidates or ideologies we support. I could say you irrationally love Obama also, but I have no reason to know that.

To the point of contention here, choice b would be correct. A memo with incorrect information was sent out about the rules concering the at-large delegates. Do you realize that a memo or email does not change the actual rules that were voted on and decided in February? Why would you think it would?

Well when people accuse me of being a liar don't expect me to take it lying down. I will most certainly call a spade a spade and quite frankly your repeated posts about every famous person that endorses Romney and Trace's irrational one liners that have no basis in reality suggest to me that an irrational attachment exists between y'all and the Romney campaign.

With that said.

Let me put it this way a panel made up of entirely Romney supporters voted to give Romney an extra delegate. That same wider group, the Michigan GOP, issued a memo to the GOP candidates explicity laying out what the state rules were.

Furthermore the Michigan GOP was in the best position to prevent the error from occurring, or at least remedy it in a timely manner by disclosing the error to the campaigns and did nothing to that effect until they could see who had in fact won the election.

Then given the choice between the two options of standing by the information they had provided to the candidates, or amending that information after the fact to more accurately reflect their "understanding" of the rules they did the latter. That is why even in a committee full of Romney supporters this measure was not unanimous.

And that is a small part of why I view the GOP as incompetent to run elections.

I never said you were a liar, just misinformed. However, after you have had this explained to you repeatedly with an article to back it up that you can read, you still insist on repeating the same incorrect information. I don't get that, but whatever. You seem to have some need to show that you right when you are not.

As far as posting about who endorses Romney, it's news and I will post it whenever it occurs. If you don't like it, don't read it. I don't read half of the assinine stuff that gets posted on here...there is just no point for me.

If Bozo the Clown or Larry the Cable Guy endorses Mitt Romney, I will post that also. Now that I see it irritates you all, I be sure to bring you all of the current Mitt news. I don't post half of it actually, but now I will be sure to.

You have a good evening now!
