I said it before, I'll say it again:
In the general election, the competition will be between Paul and Obama while Romney only has the voters that voted for him in the Primaries. He will not attract Democrats or Independents...Paul however will (including myself).
Romney might get the nomination, but he won't come close to Paul in the voting booths in November.
But everything coming out of the Paul camp indicates that he is staying in the Republican party which means he won't run as an independent in the general election and will have to at least nominally endorse Romney.

I wonder if people realize that this 'sneaky' way of Paul stealing delegates is just the same thing as Romney supporters just not giving a crap. I mean they could be out in force too if people were really that concerned about Mitt winning. Face it, Romney just doesnt have the real life human support that cares about change and fixing this country. If he did, his supporters would be outnumbering Pauls, simply because they would care more......oh right, Romney only has money, TV, and polls showing he is winning, when Paul has the actual delegates in the right spots, the massive amount of people at his rallies, and people who really and truly care about how screwed up this country is. Yeah sometimes a small group who is involved DO have more insight then people not paying attention, I would rather have some one involved guide us, then people who just picked a lead man because they were too lazy to get out and do something themselves. I would surmise that THOSE are the crazy people, the ones only willing to pick and choose, but not actually life a finger to see things through....YAY gooooo MITT...........HAHAHAHAHAHA
Really though RP'12

There is only one way Ron Paul is 'winning' anything and that is by strong arming delegates against the decisions of their constituents. Yea, something really to be proud of, right? Romney won over 6 million votes thus far, Ron Paul has less than a third of that. In two of the States, Maine and Minnesota, where Ron Paul gained the delegates, the majority of the voters in those states did not choose to go with Paul.
There's nothing here to celebrate for Paul supporters in my eyes. Paul better do something about his nutty supporters, before they damage Romney's prospects. Ron paul has to decide whether he is willing to risk Rand Paul's future prospects for the nomination all for the sake of the delusions of his supporters.edit on 22-5-2012 by Southern Guardian because: (no reason given)

The OP, and a few others, are proof that their are aliens as only someone from another planet would actually believe this idiocy.
Ron Paul is a handful of dust in a very strong wind. But, hey. You keep on believing in the Tooth Fairy.
