The fecklessness of the Romney campaign is really starting to irritate and concern conservatives and Tea Partiers. This would be a grand opportunity to score points on Romney and broaden our support with those concerned Romney is just another McCain/Bush/Dole.
But the “officials” of the Ron Paul campaign for President capitulated because they thought Romney Victory Special Train was leaving the station and wanted to get on board. Now what? Do they want to jump off? Not with Rand and Trgvye (no need to mention Olson’s sock puppet) still riding the caboose.
That’s why Ron isn’t doing any more big rallies or really, not much of anything for pretty much two months until the RNC in Tampa despite sitting on a three million plus war chest. It’s too bad really because there were many areas to highlight differences with Romney which may have made at least some conservatives see Paul’s delegates as a potential use of leverage against Romney, perhaps reopen the whole nomination process instead preparing to go down with the ship again. Even if they didn’t like him he was there to shake up the process if needed.
Now it seems like everyone is off marching to a certain doom, perhaps wanting to do something else but not brave enough or wise enough to do it all in the name of “party unity”. Hopefully RP’s delegates and supporters in Tampa won’t be quite as sheep-like as Jesse Benton would like them to be.
