Video: Former NDGOP Chairman Calls National Delegate Selection Favoring Mitt Romney “A Railroad Job”

ff_emineth_FNC_070610_08-21

Here’s video of a quick interview I did with former NDGOP Chairman, and Rick Santorum supporter, Gary Emineth about the floor fight at the state convention. The pre-nominated slate of national delegates were overwhelmingly Romney supporters despite Romney taking third in the statewide caucus vote.

Emineth spoke on the floor of the convention calling the vote “undemocratic” and “a railroad job.”

    Obama:
    Government ‘Made This Country Great’

    President Obama attacked Republicans for their desire to cut the government spending that “made this country great,” while also faulting them for failing to “balance the budget.

    ”Obama said that Republicans have “one message and that is, we’re going to make sure that we cut people’s taxes even more — so that by every objective measure our deficit is worse and we will slash government investments that have made this country great,” he argued, “not because it’s going to balance the budget, but because it’s driven by our ideological vision about how government should be.

    That’s their agenda, pure and simple.”The president should avoid attacking budgets for failing to balance.

    Senate Democrats have refused to propose a budget of any kind in over 1,000 days. President Obama’s budget included $3.6 trillion in new spending this year.

    Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., proposed a plan to balance the budget in five years. The Republican Study Committee has also proposed a plan to balance the budget in five years.

    “This president is completely irresponsible,” Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., told The Washington Examiner in a discussion of Obama’s budgetary policies.
    “He’s been in office three years.
    The problems that are facing us, that have us on the edge of the cliff — he’s avoided.
    It’s a cowardly thing to do as a world leader not to address the big problems . . .
    I really think it’s disgraceful.”
    End quote:

    What else is “disgraceful”?

    Perhaps RINO”S with an R behind their name spending and growing “government” at a rate their leftist brothers and fellow large and in charge Democrats envy?

    A “Conservitive limited government” move back to where the roots of the GOP local and nationaly is the only hope for America and North Dakota…
    Growing government got us into this mess and getting the “process” back under the “rule of Law” Constituinial chains and fetters is our only hope with these “carreer gold old boys in both parties spending like drunken sailors on shore leave, huh?

    Sorry for the insult are probebly due to the drunken sailors for my comparison..
    They aren’t spending “other peoples money”….

    Someone please tell me what we voted for on March 6th? We voted for Rick Santorum, not Mitt the RINO. This a bunch of crap. 

    • Sparkie Arbuckle

      Rick Santorum!  Bwa ha ha ha ha ha.  You voted for a nanny stater moralist.  Pfffffft.

      Really goon?
      Santorum flip flops as badly as your party’s ultimate nominee has.

      From Santorum’s Sentate campaign:

      Commitment to Higher Education

      In
      addition to Rick’s support of ensuring that primary and secondary
      schools in Pennsylvania are equipped for success, he is equally
      committed to ensuring the every Pennsylvanian has access to higher
      education. Rick Santorum has supported legislative solutions that
      provide loans, grants, and tax incentives to make higher education more
      accessible and affordable.

      From Santorum’s Presidential campaign:

      President Obama once said he wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob.

      Indeed so: do you call this democratic at all? => it’s just really plainly obvious that Mitt Romney is being “favoured” highly of the remining four candidates by the party bosses!

      • Bart Versieck

        I meant “remaining”, of course, but it’s scandalous honestly, an outrage even, and so not at all worthy of the United States of America: our votes are being neglected, and this in a state that condemns other countries for doing exactly the same, which I can only call hypocrisy of a whole new level from their part (shame on them, yes)!

    This is like gop on gop crime, where is the outrage?

  • luanmmxiiD2

    Is Romney really a globalist criminal?That’s what I have read in some commentaries. Thanks for sharing about this
