It's Official -The Hill: RNC Delegates are Unbound

Here's the legal framework that Mitt Romney's battalion are going to utilize, to Dump Trump, so that the ( likely to be totally chaotic) Republican National Convention can nominate Willard Mitt Romney, to be the GOP general national election - candidate.

The Hill's article, from today, is titled

"All delegates are unbound"

http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/presidential-campaign/287198-all-delegates-are-unbound

The detailed history of the power struggles, is from 2 experts who wrote the book about the issue

Curly Haugland is a Republican National Committeeman from North Dakota and serves on the rules committees of both the Republican National Committee and the Republican National Convention.

Sean Parnell is a public policy consultant in Virginia.

They are co-authors of the book Unbound: The Conscience of a Republican Delegate.


In a nutshell, the proverbial "fix" is now "in"

And Mitt Romney's coming...

He's the asshole they deserve and the asshole they love. The GOP establishment is dead in the ditch, murdered by their upstarts.

4. That's pretty brilliant...

it is sure to work out well for them. If they take my advice they will nominate Clint Eastwood's empty chair from 2012. It turned out to be the smartest guy in the room.

7. At this point, roll the dice.

And right now, they are loaded for Drumpf.

But with this, I imagine anything could happen. We might end up with Cthulhu as the GOP nominee.

Let's all practice:
Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

Repeat as long as you can. Just in case.

11. If that was true the Stop Trump people wouldn't be trying to get a majority on the rules committee

This decision to unbind the delegates is up to the rules committee, period. Trump is going to be the nominee, not Mitt Romney and I don't know why some people keep pushing this idea. If that happened, Mitt Romney would get decimated in the general election, because far-right conservatives would sit on account of having their votes in the primary ignored.

13. Trump is the face of the Republican Party.

 

This just means he will get even more votes on the first ballot. I think it was Rubio or someone who was still holding.
