Aw shucks, no fireworks between Team Romney and Team Paul at the Big GOP
Yawn Fest Propaganda Fest Lie Fest White-a-palooza Convention after all. What’s a bored Dem to do? I was looking forward to some down home, all-American, personhood and apple pie head-butting:
Tampa, Florida (CNN) – A stand off between Ron Paul supporters and the Republican National Committee over convention delegates appears to be easing, and both sides are close to announcing a deal that could help avoid a potentially embarrassing moment for Mitt Romney on the day he receives the GOP presidential nomination.
The deal, which is expected to be announced Tuesday afternoon, will seat more Paul delegates at next week’s Republican National Convention, an act that could help prevent an organized effort by Paul supporters to try and bring Monday’s opening session to a grinding halt. [...]
The RNC has agreed to seat 17 Ron Paul delegates from Louisiana, which has been a major point of contention between the Paul campaign and the Romney campaign. In addition, the RNC will also seat additional Paul delegates from Massachusetts, ending the controversy in that state.
Maine’s still up in the air.
Team Willard agreed to “integrate key policy issues into the GOP platform”, specifically regarding the Federal Reserve. One can only imagine… They also said they’d be open to public discussion on other issues “even if they were not adopted.”
Rand Paul was also given a prime time slot for a speech, which had to make Papa Ron happy, as well as all his groupies.
So peace prevails. Who knew Republicans were such hippies?
