The new Republican Party rule? Replace delegates that were selected during the primary process and replace them with delegates friendly to Romney? Uh uh. This is not the old Soviet Union. This is America, dammit. I support this floor fight. Yes, even with the proper delegates in place, Romney is still going to be nominated, but these delegates were chosen by the people, and deserve to be seated.TAMPA--On Monday morning, at a meeting of more than 100 Texan delegates and alternates at the Saddlebrook Resort 20 miles north of Tampa, one topic got the crowd more fired up than any other. Delegate Melinda Fredricks read aloud a letter condemning recent changes to the national Republican party's rules that would allow the GOP presidential candidate to veto and replace state delegates.
Seat the elected delegates, Comrade Romney.
This floor fight makes me proud to be living in Texas. I'll toast them with a Shiner Bock, and wave the Texas flag in their honor.
