Establishment Pubbies "Fix" Rules 12 and 15

It appears that the Usual Suspects--Boehner as leader--have crunched the Actual Conservatives on a couple of rules changes.  I say "appears" because there's no second source yet.

...First, Maine delegates were replaced with Romney people. Then, rules chairman John Sununu and GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner stood on stage at the RNC to rule on the compromise rules report. No minority report was mentioned. When asked for yeas and nays on the report, the room seemed equally divided. Boehner forged ahead and approved the report over loud boos and calls of “point of order” from activists on the floor.

No vote on the minority report.

The important language is in red.

Hmmmmmm.  More here.  As Vox implies, there seems to be a lack of integrity.  Ron Paul is not getting the nomination--so why the blackout on how many votes he got?

We could save a lot of money by just leaving the delgates at home...... I mean, whats the purpose of them going to the RNC at this point with the new rules?

Good business for Tampa merchants, strip clubs, balloon clowns, and airlines. Free TV time, too!

Once again Jim you are WRONG.
RNC was not good for strip club business in Tampa.

Erickson had as good of a potential explanation as any. It was a stupid maneuver in any case.

I liked Ericksons thoughts on settling scores, but that is just part of it. Nothing happens in a vacuum. Neomom, please tell me what you think Of Mark Shea' take on Obama and Romney?

and while you at it, tell me what you think of
Robin Koerner take on it.

Not necessarily. Your link only says that a windfall from the RNC was not expected. It also says the Superbowl brought more business. Duh!

You article does not prove me wrong. But thanks for playing the game.
