The RNC doesn’t want you to suffer under the rules from the Romney convention so they tweeted this video below to keep you from becoming alarmed. You mustn’t be held to those old rules. Why should you be stuck with the two candidates in the lead for the presidency who people are actually voting for when the RNC can change the rules and select another nominee who we can be beamed in from the establishment. Of course it means Hillary wins but so does the establishment, yay!
The RNC wants to change the rules to get rid of the two final nominees and pick someone they like. The rule they don’t like is the one that states the nominee must have won a minimum 8 states to be considered at the convention.
This has Karl Rove’s fingerprints all over this.
You’ll enjoy the video which tries to make it seem as if this is the normal way to do things and to remind us it’s been done before.
They particularly like to evoke the ghost of Abe Lincoln.
“This all seems a little crazy and unprecedented…haha…”, the average Joe video narrator says, “so you might be wondering if this has ever happened before? “Haha…ABSOLUTELY!”, the narrator says definitively. That’s how we got nominees who went on to be president like Abe Lincoln, Dwight Eisenhower, Nixon and Ford, the narrator continued.
That’s how they got rid of nominees also.
There are only two scenarios, the narrator concludes and those are, one, a nominee wins 1237 delegates or two, it’s an open convention. An open convention for these guys is one in which party hacks horse trade in a smoke-free room.
We don’t need a constitution, we have party hacks and that’s in both parties.
They make the point continually that Trump only has a plurality and the majority are not being represented which is true but that doesn’t mean we pick someone who didn’t run or had a meager showing.

Politico’s Mike Allen reported in his Monday newsletter that “top Republicans are becoming increasingly vocal” of the possibility that Ryan winds up with the GOP nomination.
“One of the nation’s best-wired Republicans,” as cited by Allen, gave Ryan a better-than 50% chance of leaving the July convention as the party’s nominee. The source gave a 60% chance of the convention becoming deadlocked. At that time, Allen’s source boldly predicted that Ryan would have a 90% chance of having the delegates turn his way.
Ryan, who’s in Israel, told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Monday that he remains uninterested in the job.
He wasn’t interested in Speaker either.
Beam me up Rove baby!
