The Clay County caucus in Liberty turned into a yelling match
LIBERTY, Mo. - Today was caucus day for most of Missouri and some of the caucus meetings turned into a battle between Ron Paul supporters and everyone else
Missouri held a Republican primary election back on February 7. This date had been set for a long time, so when the RNC said state parties would be penalized if they held binding primaries before March 1, the state tried to change the date. But Republicans in the state legislature added provisions to the bill that changed the primary date that would have stripped the (currently Democratic) governor of some of his power, so he vetoed it. The only way out of this deadlock was to declare that the February 7 vote would indeed be taken, but it wouldn't count. That is what happened

Man the Republican Party is a mess. No unity and everybody out spinning and trying every trick in the book to get and or steal delegates. At this point they should just ban all four of the idiots and choose someone else at the convention. They have kicked up the rhetoric against each other so much that they all have people whipped up in a frezy and doing all kinds of crazy stuff. Do any of them know they need a unified party to even have a chance against Obama. Everybody is out for themselves.
These bogus “parliamentary” tactics are straight out of the radical playbook: Purposeful disruptions, intended to delay the normal procedure of events and provoke confrontations, with the hope of making such a farce of the meeting that regular citizens are discouraged from participating.
Go to a mental ward, give a psychotic a copy of Roberts Rules of Order, and after he’s released, he can begin a promising new career as a Ron Paul activist — as soon as he goes off his meds, that is.
A caucus in the gymnasium at Francis Howell North High School in St. Peters was shut down after about a half hour of boisterous disputes, some of it over a caucus rule barring videotaping and other recording. Supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul repeatedly yelled objections to decisions made by caucus organizers. St. Peters police arrested two Paul supporters at the scene after they gave them "numerous warnings to leave the school property."

The biggest problem with your link is their very obvious anti-Paul mentality.

We took 65 delegates in green county today as well as ALL the alternates, my small county took 5 delegates and a couple alternates! Reports are coming in like gang busters.

Paul is finished. Frankly, I'm not very enthused by these other guys either. Santorum is a pompous twit and Romney is the mega flip-flopper and proto-Obama. The whole Republican field, including Paul, is a major disappointment.
