Now that the RNC will mean the official end of the primary election season, Jesse Benton and John Tate will move from the RP campaign over to Campaign for Liberty.
Here's how one commenter at Daily Paul views that move:
With sellouts Jesse Benton and John Tate heading back to their seats on the Board of Directors of Campaign for Liberty next week it is time to leave.Here's a report from a Daily Paul commenter on a delegate conference call:
I cannot support with my dollars or my time any organization that would have these two in any Leadership position.
After this week it is time to move beyond the Paul Family and look for new leadership in the Liberty Movement.
Add to that a new Liberty Organization as well.
total buzz kill.Lew Rockwell says Ron is not going to endorse Romney:
more questions were asked (or were allowed to be asked) about busing and VIP passes than what our delegate count really is. And how the Platform went. or what exactly we should do on the floor.
Apparently, according to the campaign. RON PAUL WILL NOT ACCEPT a nomination from the floor.
Basically at this point I guess he considers it not cool to be flaunting his support when in that controlled environment it will look very small.
They never answered if MA was settled and alluded to the Credentials Committee issue - which John Tate was meeting with the RP committee members and could not participate in the call I was on.
There was a lot of talk about when you speak to the press answer the question YOU WISHED they had asked. Just jump right to good stuff that you want to say. And to remember that you are representing a movement. They don't want wild eyed - pissed off- people getting on camera. I see their point - but I for one am, in fact, fairly irritated.
they didn't say endorse Romney...but after Monday simply say you are looking forward to bringing the party back bla bla bla... and firmly planting the flag of liberty in the republican party.
someone asked if Ron Paul would be endorsing Romney and they said, "good question".
If Ron Paul ends up endorsing Romney I am going to flip my lid.
...no one should believe the disinfo agent who, when asked if Ron would endorse Rom, replied, "Good question." That's also the answer to: "Why are you on the paid staff?" If Ron were willing to endorse Romney, which he is not, he would have a big speech at the convention.
Let me say it again: this great man will never endorse evil. Never.
