You have no clue what you are blogging about. 1st, the straw poll has NEVER influenced the selection of our presidential nominee in Colorado’s Republic party. Second, the executive committee is NOT the Chairman, and blaming the Chair for what the Executive Committee does is absurd. Educate yourself. http://www.adamscountygop.com
Ah, but I had actually participated in the 2012 caucuses. So, I knew exactly how it all worked. Here’s my response to Knowledgable:
I’m quite well educated. I’ve been to a Colorado straw poll and I fully understood that the vote was not binding, because it was explained to us. I thought that was odd. The executive committee made a decision, acting as the de facto chair of the state GOP. This committee decision to not choose a presidential candidate for nomination was unanimous, yes. They’re all responsible. If you read the blog again carefully you will see I did not put responsibility on the Chairman of the GOP. The fact is that Colorado’s State GOP is a rogue, RINO operation now, which has thoroughly alienated its conservative base. So, I suppose the GOP, like Jeb Bush, figures it can win without our votes. Fine. Win without us. More power to you. The delegates to the convention can do whatever they want to do now. I assure you I won’t be registering as a Republican.
And as it turns out I was dead on the center of the target in deducing what the Colorado GOP was up to with that executive decision to not pick a candidate via caucus for President. It’s the headliner on Drudge today, from Politico.com:
Moments after announcing that Ted Cruz had swept all 34 delegate slots at the Colorado GOP convention Saturday, the state party tweeted: “We did it. #NeverTrump.”
Within minutes, the tweet had been deleted.
Steve House, the Colorado GOP chairman, insisted his staff had nothing to do with the tweet and is now investigating.
“There’s no way we tweeted that,” House said, although he acknowledged that the state party was responsible for deleting it…
And just how did it happen that Ted Cruz got all of the delegates from Colorado without one vote being cast? Read this. The choice of Ted Cruz looks so nice, ordinary and sanitary in the Bloomberg report.
It was filthy, rotten perfidy, which Bloomberg.com so cleverly disguises as business as usual.
The GOP voters of Colorado had absolutely no say in the decision to give all of the delegates to Ted Cruz. And the blue-blood country club Republican Establishment is entirely befuddled as to why the nation’s conservative base has completely lost faith in the party’s leadership? Gimme a break. How about, we’ve entirely lost faith in the entire political process.
Here’s my next prognostication, which is really a no-brainer:
If the Republican Establishment steals the nomination from front-runner Donald Trump via a floor fight shenanigan at the national convention, Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the United States – because millions upon millions of conservative voters will stay at home in November. And if you haven’t noticed, the Bush family would rather have Hillary than Donald Trump.
How did we come to this terrible place?
Heaven forbid that we should actually re-establish our national border and stop the Third World Muslim jihad invasion.
Thanks to Drudge for that video link.
