Romney Makes Delegates Sign Loyalty Pledge


At a party meeting in Arizona, RNC members and state GOP chairmen were welcomed into a private reception with Mitt Romney "only after signing a form pledging to support Romney as a delegate to the national convention in Tampa," CNN reports.

"All three members of Iowa's conservative RNC delegation... attempted to enter the reception but were rebuffed after refusing to sign the delegate pledge. The dispute became heated in the hallway outside, with the Iowans demanding to know why they had to sign a form to get their picture taken with the former Massachusetts governor."

Said one: "The don't trust us. I have said I will support the nominee when we have a nominee, no ifs, ands or buts."

1. I've heard this tune before...

...and it never ends well.

On that note, I think I just heard a gunshot outside? And I live in the city? Eep...

On edit: No sirens, so the Revolution hasn't started, apparently. :phew:

3. Repunks even demand a loyalty oath regarding the primaries

To participate in the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary in Virginia, voters will be required to sign a form stating, "I, the undersigned, pledge that I intend to support the nominee of the Republican Party for president."

2. In the movie 'The Producers'

the producers were asked by Liebkind to take an oath (to Hitler) in order to secure rights for making his script into a play.

Franz Liebkind: Ze penalty for braking ze Siegfried Oath is DESS!

Sounds like Rmoney to me!

5. The guy is all about oaths and penalties

Mitt Romney is a Temple Mormon, and as such he has sworn blood
oaths of sacrifice, obedience and consecration to the church.
