Disturbing bits and pieces of reports are reaching me. If true, it could be the beginning of the end of the GOP, and signal the immediate rise of the TEA Party as a viable 3rd party.
It seems that in the smoke-filled back rooms of Tampa – the GOP Rules Committee is considering changes to the rules about how delegates for the 2016 convention will be chosen.
The Romneyites are stacking the deck so that come 2016, Mitt will pre-select the only acceptable state delegates. If I’m right [and I so hope I'm wrong] Runty Maginn, John Sununu, Bluter and Torky are right in the middle of it. Too bad none of them are real Republicans…
I can only hope wiser heads will prevail, and this attempt to further Stalinize our party – at this critical juncture – will be shelved. It would be one thing if New England and Massachusetts were a thriving GOP stronghold, – - but DAMN, when the best we can show is Brown, Collins and Snowe [3 blind RiNOs], this power-grab seems utterly ridiculous.
But if they attempt to turn the GOP into Romney’s Party, . . . we’re looking at four more years of TEA Parties in the streets! And enrollment in the MassGOP will drop below 10%.
This feels like the GOP insiders snatching Defeat from the jaws of Victory!
