Can I post this on my blog???
To Clear things up...

Mueller has been one of the most respected individuals on the planet over the last 20 years.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Get it!!!!

“You can go to live in France, but you can't become a Frenchman. You can go to live in Germany, but you can't become a German... But anyone, from any corner of the world, can come to live in the United States and become an American.”

Very well written, and the first cogent explanation - in context - that I've seen.  Thank you for posting.

Am I correct in concluding that Dr. Paul is effectively a cheater?

Scamming the system, to obtain delegates in opposition to the will of the states' voters?

A kook and a cheater, despite the coy little grin?

I wish you could post this over at the other place.  They're spinning in circles and screaming over this; when I tried to suggest it was aimed at the Paul followers' shenanigans, I was almost universally spit at (one person agreed.)

Good idea.  Any thoughts on having it posted over at FR (with a link-back of course)?  I'd be happy to do so.

They are emotionally invested in being victims.

Romney is the horse we rode in on, whether we like it or not.  I'd be the first to suggest that his nomination was purchased with establishment money and pretty much preordained.  But there is no good outcome to trying to subvert him at this point.  Even if the attempt to throw a monkey wrench into his nomination succeeded, it would cause a rift in the party that could doom any chance for a conservative nominee in the future.  If you can't cheer and scream for Romney, then cheer and scream for Ryan and STFU about Romney until after the election.  No sensible conservatives could possibly want Romney to lose, regardless of whether they can cast a vote for him in November.

Indeed.  Your views are well-known so I must say that this is a very-much appreciated comment.  You are ever the gentleman.  What are your views on the merits of the rule change, separate and apart from the current situation?  Will it be a good change going forward, or not?

Ok, but you have to give the audience a decent taste of the fare, otherwise they'll never make it over here to make it all the way to dessert.

Does that mean you are posting it?...lol
