    Saul Really? On A Sunday? - Day 11

    The Michigan GOP credentials committee met last night and shuffled the hours so that we would lose one today.

    They just don't know when to stop.

    Saul has his weekly "musings" propaganda letter out, and of course he feels the need to include further repudiation of the truth.  First he makes the point he is a family man with mouths to feed so we feel sorry for him if/when he gets his corrupt rear tossed from the party mechanism, then he goes into the Romney inevitability meme. THEN states the obvious and points out how dangerous Obama is, so we rally together with him, and finally drops the straw man "Operation hilarity" bomb:

    From Democrat/Liberal Activist Joe DiSano "Operation: Hilarity."

    The do-gooders and progressive purists will wring their hands at those among us who helped Rick Santorum win 7 of Michigan's 14 Congressional Districts. They will tell you our efforts were misguided and unproductive. Some will even say our efforts were unethical and an example of dirty politics. They may be right on that last point.

    Our efforts may have been dirty and unethical. I don't think so, but I suppose honest people can debate that. What is undeniable is the effectiveness of the efforts of progressives and Democrats to help deliver delegates to Santorum.

    Through our campaign of 80,000 robo-calls, 200,000 emails, several radio and TV appearances and countless print mentions leading up to primary day, a list of just under 14,000 Democrats pledged their support to Rick Santorum in the GOP primary.

    Look to the results in Michigan's sprawling 1st U.S. Congressional District. Santorum won the district by less than 1 percent or 790 votes. Our list of Democrats in the 1st U.S. Congressional District had 800 voters agreeing to support Santorum. Look at the 13th U.S. Congressional District, where Santorum won by a margin with 1,535 votes. Our robo-call program alone identified just fewer than 1,300 Democrats willing to hold their nose and vote for Santorum in the Wayne County-based 13th CD. That doesn't include people activated by our email blasts or media appearances.

    At the least, our efforts in Michigan moved the delegates from the 1st, 7th and 13th U.S. Congressional Districts to Santorum's column. We denied Romney the clean sweep he'd expected.


    The Dems I know voted both ways.  And as I pointed out previously, the Snyder win by actively pursuing Democrats and independents in the 2010 Republican gubernatorial primary only got a "stfu," and "you don't know what you are talking about." and "It didn't happen.", by the same folks who now cry foul. And frankly, most of the presumed crossover Dems FEAR Santorum far more than Romney on two levels; Ability to beat Obama, and Governance.  

    They won't take that chance. No Freaking Way. More below ~

    And though Saul may be acting like he doesn't understand that, he is not stupid.  A stupid man cannot get away with pretending he is a Republican for as long as Anuzis has.  To be able to twist the power structure to meet his ends takes a certain talent, an ability, to spin, to influence.

    Spin the 'unethical' to the Democrat side where it belongs. Check.  Make it look like it has nothing to do with partisan manipulation for the Romney team firmly in place within our party's power structure by offering the substitute boogeyman; Mr Straw.

    Folks, This is what has kept the losers from our party in place for far too long.  This is the kind of stuff that has put in place the non thinking Fred Uptons, the ineffective Dave Camps, and allowed the dangerous Carl Levins and Debbie Stabenows continue to dominate.  Allowing this to continue in a party that is supposed to stand for rule of law merely mocks its own existence. Republicans cannot be proud of what IS the Michigan republican party.  MiGOPers can pretend all is good and fine, but as the supportive base which offered hope and support to some of the good ones whom have been elected, those gains are for naught.

    Because of the truly bad bananas in the bunch. In. Our. Republic.

    We have done our homework.  We have demonstrated how the rules were set up:

    Michigan is a proportional primary in which 30 delegates will be awarded -  2 delegates per each of the 14 congressional districts allocated winner-take-all by the CD vote (total of 28) and the remaining 2 delegates will be at-large allocated on a "proportional" basis if a 15 percent threshold statewide is reached per the state party's filing.
    Rules, BTW which still stand throughout all of this on the RNC site. Rules that have been clearly articulated repeatedly throughout the pre and post election cycle, yet manipulated by four to favor THEIR preferred candidate.

    And now those four on the MiGOP credentials committee have cost us yet another hour.

    And they will do so every single day until they resign or are booted from more honorable persons within the party.

    Is Saul doing back in Michigan? Thought we were rid of that loser when he went to work for Mr Newt.

    . . . close call in CD-01 (~0.9% if I have the math right); it so happens that Romney's win in CD-05 was closer (452 votes, ~0.8%).  Since the results aren't due to be certified until 23 April, either or both of those could flip in a recount.

    Additionally, of the democrat-dominated districts (5th, 9th, 12th, 13th, and 14th), I noticed that Mittens took four of them, which calls any "Operation Hilarity" skewing into question.

    I also noticed that Saul's weekly propaganda post also includes an entry entitled, "It's time to believe: Romney's a winner."  The source cited is this Washington Post article that ignores the realities of the math I've laid out here.  Not exactly a surprise, really.

    I like Saul, but citing consultant DiSano's spin? (none / 0) (#7)

    Did 100,000 democrats actually cross over 3-1 for Santorum in the Michigan primary? I doubt it.

    C'mon Saul. That's BS. Look at the actual numbers. If you're going to keep pushing the Santorum made it close due to Democrats line, I'm going to counter with actual numbers every time. If you want me to hold my nose and vote for Romney if he's the nominee back off this stuff, because I'm this close to passing on the race to spite the coronation, just as I passed on the governor's race last time because of Snyder.

    Joe DiSano's pushing the spin. Of course he is. That's his job. He's a consultant doing work for somebody. He's going to spin things to make him look good. That said, who's going to vote for a candidate because Joe DiSano tells him to? Outside his family or close circle? He doesn't have that kind of power.

    The numbers show that DiSano is wrong.

    And for the record, I'm not a consultant for any presidential campaign.
