    Anuzis The Core Of The Problem?

    One thing that has not gone unnoticed by the grassroots Republicans and conservatives is that Saul Anuzis is the GOP guy who seems to be solely responding to the questions about the DeleGATE Change in Michigan.

    Mike Cox, the CHAIR of the credentials committee isn't doing it.  In fact, the former attorney general of Michigan has been pretty clear where he stands on the issue.

    "I supported Mitt, but the vote was clearly wrong. It's kind of like Third World voting. We published rules and then we voted to change the rules."
    And even more quotes are available essentially saying the same thing.

    Mr Cox an attorney, also joined by Eric Doster, the Counsel for the Michigan GOP voted NO to changing the rules on Wednesday night, with regard to delegate assignment.  Even Holly Hughes is reported as saying she disagrees with the rules change.

    Those who voted FOR?  Bobby Schostak, Sharon Wise, and Bill Runco all voting for the change appear to have more of a silence following them.  The last of the "gang of four", Saul Anuzis is the most heard, and continues to defend it as if it is a matter of life and death.  Its as if it is his baby.  His creation.  HIS work.

    I believe it is.

    In fact, one Tea Party leader I have spoken to says it is a "test case" for NPV.  A way that Saul can see if reassigning delegates can be done through further "weighting" of population heavy counties like Oakland.

    Continued below.

    One thing for sure, this is not right.

    Even if the intent was to reallocate the delegates completely (sans a complete delegate number) the fact remains that what was perceived by the candidates, the campaign staff, the media, the public, Mike Cox, Eric Doster, AND even Bobby Schostak who voted for the change, was that there was a proportional split.

    And Saul, who is solidly circling his own wagon seems to be the only visible defender with the media and those in the public who are asking.

    Some folks have forwarded responses by others on the Cred Cte., and they seem to be cut and paste ups of Saul's own words, with little unique perspective.

    And the appearance of impropriety is ..apparent.

    And the fingerprints of a man who ought not be the RNC committeeman with such partisan support for a single candidate are all over it.

    The MiGOP has little choice in what needs to be done. First, assign the delegates as they were intended for the 15-15 count.

    THEN start the purge of those who change the rules post game in efforts to change the outcomes.

    . . . that "Mister National Popular Vote" is the guy spearheading this fiasco, and the only one actually pushing for it (though I've noticed that Scott Greenlee is now on the bandwagon).

    That it might be a test case for NPV is beyond scary, sorta like Governor Perdue ad-libbing that Congress actually suspend the 2012 elections.

    in a vacuum....there must be collusion on others part, silent or otherwise

    "Bobby Schostak, Sharon Wise, and Bill Runco all voting for the change appear to have more of a silence following them."

    So there are more parts of this problem than Saul

    We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
