I bet Rmoney has a bunch of other changes he'd like to make that wont sit well with others , even his own kind.

There is no chance Paul can do anything other than split the vote and keep Obummer in office.
To bad his sheep dont understand that at this stage.
But sure they have the right to keep the delegates and ensure 0's victory,but they should be forced into forming their own short sighted alternative party the next time.

Didn't anyone catch Rand Paul being interviewed last night (at the Rep. Convention) where he told Hannity that all Libertarians are now coming together to support Romney?

Rand Paul commented that too many Libertarians have sat out elections when they could easily have helped Republicans win in many districts.
He also said that, due to the importance of this election, Libertarians are coming together and will this time enthusiastically vote for Romney.

So the dust up intended by the OP is just more smoke and mirrors of the Left, hoping to cast doubt where there is none.
That must be one of Alinsky's Rules, but I don't know them by heart so I'm not sure which one.

You evidently didn't personally see the interview.

Rand Paul was specifically referring to "chapters" of Libertarians that have been in touch and who are actively bringing Libertarian members on board to support Romney.

If you don't believe that, that's your problem.

I think he was disagreeing with your assent. As do I.

You're welcome to think everything in hunky-dory in conservative land, but I'd bet my wages this week it ain't so. Not because Republicans are somehow prone to disagreement, but because all people are.

You guys hear about the Democrat convention blocking out women with children? Its nice to know that "stupid" seems to be evenly distributed amongst the parties.

Your statement is a bit inaccurate as written. I don't believe you meant it as written.

From what I was told by a female friend who supports the "no children" thing, there are a limited number of seats, and for every seat a child takes an adult can't come.

This isn't a family event - it's a political convention. For adults. Women with children can come - just leave the kids at home. I don't see a problem with that.

Ron Paul is at the GOP convention to show his support for Romney/Ryan as i type this. His son is there to speak as well. Good try.

One of my friends is high up in the local chapter of NOW, and she had a different take on it. AFAICT kids don't take up any more seats than the same number of adults. If child care was offered (which I understand is common at large conventions) then this would be a non-issue. I'm sure there is a perfectly good reason why child care has not been offered, but it doesn't look good regardless. Its hard to claim the "party of inclusion" high ground, especially for women, if you don't in fact occupy it.

The RNC will be a big tent, they just won't allow the interlopers in.

I see your point, especially regarding the childcare issue. Given the importance of the female vote in this election and how it is mobilizing daily against the GOP ticket, this does seem like a D blunder. That may change.

I wonder how anyone could possibly know what ALL Libertarins are going to do? Answer - they can't & don't.

Especially since at least 2 on this board alone have said for months they won't be voting for the GOP ticket.

Although one is predictably wavering. That was a given, though.

I just wish the Repubs would tell us what their aggenda is, other than " We're not sure,but It's not what those guys are doing."

And I do believe it's funny how some of the most devout Conservatives are putting distance between Rmoney and themselves.
