The way Romney won shows what a Loser he really is.

In all fields of human endeavor, winning by cheating is losing.

In a competition, when someone cheats, he gets disqualified. The disqualification does not make the runner-up the winner. Rather, it reveals that the man who appeared to be the runner-up had in fact been the winner all along.

In the race for the GOP nomination for President, therefore, Ron Paul won.

As the New York Times wrote yesterday,

Delegates from Nevada tried to nominate Mr. Paul from the floor, submitting petitions from their own state as well as Minnesota, Maine, Iowa, Oregon, Alaska and the Virgin Islands. That should have done the trick: Rules require signatures from just five states. But the party changed the rules on the spot. Henceforth, delegates must gather petitions from eight states.

When Mr. Romney and the RNC cheat so blatantly, they make the game no longer about politics: they make themselves ineligible for the vote of anyone who cares about his own morality, his own honesty or his own integrity – regardless of his politics.

One thought on “The way Romney won shows what a Loser he really is.

  1. Your quote from the NYT blogger *is* what was said, but they have their facts wrong. Maine delegates were stripped by the credentials-committee, and replaced with Romineey-loyalists hand-picked by some folks in the RNC elites (none of them from Maine). Ditto for Louisiana, Oklahoma, and possibly Massachusetts, although in that last state possibly there were not enough pauliticians to make a plurality.

    Besides the states that Ron Paul won, but which had their delegates stripped prior to the official opening of the convention, pauliticians still had first-ballot majorities in NV IA MN, plus nomination-capable pluralities (and methinks majorities) for the state of AK and the territory-which-is-treated-as-a-state of VI (per RNC rule #1_B). Not sure about Oregon, but methinks Ron Paul had a majority of delegates there as well — just not of alternates from Oregon due to last-minute shenanigans by the Oregon repub party.

    Anyways, he was *able* to be nominated by at least five states, NV IA MN + AK VI, and possible six counting Oregon. Adding in the states that were unfairly stripped, ME LA OK and maybe MA, would give Ron Paul the win over Mitt in either 9 or 10 states, including Maine. In practice, though, Maine was denied their delegate-slate, and did not have a plurality, let alone a majority, in Tampa
