    Looks like the GOP, in another history making event, may have goofed their count of the vote in Maine.

    Why is this so hard for them? :lol:

    I smell the Bush-machine angling for a "Draft Jeb" brokered convention. Did you say Maine?!?! :eek:

    I'm just wondering if the "Republican Establishment" is having something to do with this. They think Romney is the only viable candidate..so they are ginning up the votes or something.

    Who knows..the GOP isn't really into Democracy..anyways.

    It isn't about viability, it's about maintaining the status quo. They will do anything to prevent their applecart from being tipped over. Since Obama is on the same payroll as Romney they know it doesn't matter which one is elected next time.

    That's why we need public financing of elections. If they're the same, it's because they're beholden to the same special interests, instead of US!

    I do not think that there is any national conspiracy. I believe it is just incompetence by state party officials. I would like to think if it was a national conspiracy that it would have been conducted more professionally.

    Have looked at the state of the Republican Party lately? Professional goof-ups, IMO!
