Freepers Abstain, and Not Courteously
Well, today is supposed to be the day. The Texas Republican primary is expected to officially put Willard Mitt Romney over the top in delegates needed for the 2012 GOP nomination.
So, in spite of all the amusing diversions that the messy, badly run, and (if you care at all about democracy) extremely depressing Republican nominating process has brought us, the Obama people were correct in supposing that it would be Willard facing them in November. Good, because they've been preparing for that for, like, ever. On the other hand, if the GOP wants to continue to entertain us with some shenanigans at their convention, we won't object.
Meanwhile, we thought we'd check in on our anti-Romney teabagger friends at Free Republic, to see how they're handling the idea of Willard, Clinched. Seems that they're resigned to it, but refuse to join in the fun. Here are a few comments from Texan Freeps that were just too Schadenfreud-y not to share.
“Voted this morning for Uncommitted.”
“He won’t be getting any help from me. I’m still voting for one of the other candidates.”
“I voted for Newt since his name was still on the ballot. Just a protest vote against Mitt.”
“Romney despises Texas and Texas is irrelevant to the nominating process anyway. The feds made sure of that.”
“I’m not helping to put him over the top. I’ll vote for any of the other Republicans on the ballot.”
“The damn machine wouldn't let me write anyone in!”
“Conservatives got snookered, again. The GOP got their guy, again. So far, 2012 is almost a repeat of 2008. Let’s just hope the November results won’t be a repeat.”
(Actually, dear Freeps, we cats are looking forward to that!)
