    Let us suppose for arguments sake that the Tea Party Movement's platform is what I have in mind for the country. Do they have someone to run that can beat BHO.....Even if he could. Ron Paul is 77 YO, for crying out loud, around the same age as the Supreme Court Justices that we are worrying about retiring

    At this point we need a two term candidate.

    [QUOTE=Franco;1002345]UB, RP has earned a prominent speak spot at the convention. It would go a long way in recruiting support for Romney. Not the video tribute the RNC has planned, where they get to control the message. That jesture of appeasement will not make RP bite his tongue Sunday evening! RP will step aside after this week but, the movement lives on![/QUOTE]

    That's funny, seems to me "the movement" as you call it petered out in just about every state and staggered to the finish with Ron Paul suspending his campaign before the actual end. If he thought it actually "lived on", would he have just quit like he did??

    If RP's son, Rand, has put his backing to Romney ... I think that gives us reason to believe that RP's supporters need to do that, too. Or is that just too simple for the complex world of politics?

    What will be missing at the RNC Convention? Integrity!

    Although there has been speculation for weeks that Ron Paul was never invited to speak at the convention, it has been recently revealed that he was offered a speaking spot but it came with 2 strings attached. He would have to submit his speech for approval and vetting by the Romney team. He would also have to fully endorse Mitt Romney for President. Dr. Paul declined the offer due to these compromising conditions. In an interview reported by the New York Times, he is quoted as saying that "It wouldn't be my speech" and "That would undo everything I have done in the last 30 years. I don't fully endorse him for President."

    And John, RP is NOT a Tea Party person and never been a so-called member. The Teas backed big spending Rick Santorum!
    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    In case you haven't noticed, Congress has been dysfunctional for the last couple of decades! They like spending money we don't have, limiting our Liberty and passing bills that caters to the lowest common denominator.

    Ron Paul political deciples.

    the RNC knows that in order to beat BHO they have to show a united front and message, they wont risk any loose cannons, like Palin, RP,or Santorum straying off point and trying to further their own personal agendas....it looks as if Newt Gingrich is the only former candidate that has put the good of the country above his own personal beliefs, Santorum released his delegates, but has been quiet as a church mouse, same with Gov Goodhair (Perry)

    I dont expect any of the former candidates to give Mitt the big reach around, but I do expect them to show the same spirit that they pledged during the primary season to defeat BHO, their silence shows they were willing to say and do anything to get the nomination..

    Ron Paul will soon be a footnote in politics, his followers will find someone else to rally behind

    That doesn't say much for Newt. That he would be a politician above what he feels is best for the country, integrity out the window!

    Obama or Romney, nothing will change.

    actually it says a ton about Newt, he kept to his word..he vowed on stage that the single most important issue was to defeat BHO in Nov...Newt does not have to prove that he doesnt have the best intentions for the country above his own personal ambitions or agenda....

    your claim that nothing will change smacks of sour grapes...I never expected you to embrace ANY nominee except RP, but what is more important to you...the good of the Nation or your ideology shaped by RP ...

    Mitt was not my first choice but I will back him 100% because IMO he is better than the current resident of the WH, and because he will do a better job of bring back the US to the type of nation that it deserves to be, and that is good for the country as a whole...

    Maybe he feels four years of Mitt is better than four more years of BHO.
