Dump Romney: "Paul Ryan can't save doomed GOP Ticket"
TAMPA, FL (MMD Newswire) August 13, 2012 -- Steve Baldwin, spokesman for a rising "DUMP ROMNEY" insurgency, reacted to the GOP frontrunner's announced running mate this way: "Paul Ryan can't save a doomed ticket. Nobody votes for Veep, a Palin makeover couldn't save McCain, and Ryan can't prettify Romney. Whether we're painting lipstick on a pig or RINO, it's still ugly."
Baldwin, former Executive Director of the Council for National Policy (CNP), an influential conservative organization in Washington, said "People vote for president, not vice president. Like Romney and Obama, Ryan supported TARP, the auto bailouts and raising the debt ceiling. Unlike Romney and Obama, Ryan had the common sense and principles to fight government takeover of health care. Voters are allergic to Mitt Romney. He'd be the worst nominee the GOP has ever offered."
Delegates to the August 27 Republican National Convention here began receiving a strategy memo last week entitled, "DUMP ROMNEY: Why Tampa's Republican Delegates must Dump Romney to Defeat Obama." It contends that no delegates are actually "bound" by law or GOP rules to vote for Romney and that, to win the White House and toss-up Senate seats, delegates must exercise their right to "conscientiously abstain" from Romney on the crucial first ballot, aiming for a stronger ticket leader in subsequent convention voting rounds.
Also the core of a hard-hitting new 80,000 word book, the entire 9-page "DUMP ROMNEY" memo to GOP delegates can be read free online via Amazon Kindle Cloud Reader. "Were frontrunners simply entitled to the nomination, a convention wouldn't be necessary," the texts say. Baldwin said, "A Fox News poll released Friday shows Obama with a widening 9 point popular lead over Romney, yet it's not as bad the RealClearPolitics Electoral College projections, which already puts Obama at 332 on the 270 electoral votes required for re-election."
But, the worst is ahead: If Romney leads the GOP ticket, the "DUMP ROMNEY" texts say, voters in the all-important swing states will likely reject him as they learn the content of Mormon dogma. Citing a June Gallup poll that indicates 18% of Americans won't vote for a Mormon, the book says, "No mere adherent, Romney presided as the LDS equivalent of Boston's Cardinal Law. In 2008, Obama had his Jeremiah Wright problem; in 2012, Mormon Bishop Romney IS Jeremiah Wright." Excerpts:
- "Few Tampa delegates have had any disclosure on the racially-toxic [Book of Mormon] texts to which Willard M. Romney is tied - and which he has yet to repudiate; same with the anti-Semitic writings." These "will seem so hateful ... that we'll all look like bigots and fools if we make him our 2012 nominee."
- "Can there be any real doubt that the fascinating metaphysics of Mitt's Mormonism - which belligerently declares all other faiths to be "ABOMINATIONS" - will soon find wide distribution in Bible Belt areas of FL, VA, IA and MO?"
- "Who seriously harbors any doubt that Romney's exotic beliefs - e.g., that the Garden of Eden was in Missouri, that Jesus is Satan's brother, that God the Father [had physical sex with] the Virgin Mary, that each of us can become gods - will get spun this fall as those of a religious whacko?"
"DUMP ROMNEY," which went up Thursday at Amazon.com and DumpRomney.org, is going as a pre-Tampa gift, in paperback form or as a hyperlinked e-read to over 20,000 GOP delegates and elected officials, organizers say. Researched and drafted by the group Jews and Christians Together, edited by Sara and David Bethel, the book and underlying GOP convention memo aims "to provide thoughtful, responsible and dutiful Republican delegates with a pathway out of their and our nation's very serious problem, that the Republican Party is on the brink of nominating a sure loser," said Baldwin.
