Texas GOP Passes Resolutions Warning Mitt Romney, Supporting Tom Delay and Approving Abortion Laws

Below is the article about Texas GOP Passing a Resolution Warning Romney:


The State Republican Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Texas met for a quarterly meeting on Saturday March 31st, 2012 in Austin, TX.

Several things of importance happened at the meeting, but this article will only cover the resolutions that were passed by the SREC. I will post other articles regarding the other things that happened at the meeting.
There were five resolutions passed at this meeting.

The most pressing and striking resolution that passed was a resolution warning Mitt Romney to go to the Texas Presidential Debate that the Texas GOP is putting together before the Texas Primary on May 29th, 2012. Gingrich, Santorum and Paul have accepted the invitation to this nationally televised Texas Presidential Debate. Romney has not accepted.

We basically told Romney that if he does not go to the debate then we will take it to mean that he does not care about our large Republican state and therefore he should not get any of our delegates.

That is a strong warning from the largest Republican State Party in America! Don't Mess with Texas Mitt Romney!

The exact wording of the resolution does not say the word "warning", but in my opinion, as one of the people who was there and voted on this resolution, the intent and tone of the resolution was to tell Romney that he had better not ignore us and had better come to our debate or else!

Texas has 155 delegates and if we give our delegates to another candidate then that might be plenty enough to keep Romney from securing the nomination and force a brokered convention. When I say give our delegates to someone else, I mean that the people of Texas might get ticked off at Romney and decide to vote for someone other than Romney and I am not in any way insinuating that the Texas GOP will or can away anyone's delegates and giving it to someone else.

The Texas GOP is bending over backwards to try to get Romney to come here including asking him to let us know what date and location best works for him and the other candidates. We are not dictating to him when and where to be.

We are just tired of not having a voice in the national presidential race and Romney snubbing a debate in Texas when we finally get a national debate will not make us happy.

I of course will fully support the candidate who wins the nomination and join together to fight Obama, but until then the race is not over and Texas should have a say too!

As always, this blog is written by David Bellow, a member of the SREC, and my opinions are not the official voice of the RPT.

Another resolution of note was a resolution in support of Tom Delay. The liberal District Attorney shopped 3 Grand Juries in order to find one in the liberal Travis County that would indict Congressman Tom Delay for something that was not even against Texas law and no one has ever
been charged in Texas for the same thing.

The other two resolutions had to do with Abortion. One was a resolution regarding preventing fraud against Texas taxpayers. It encouraged the Texas Legislature to pass a broad whistle-blower law similar to the Federal False Claims Act that would apply to allegations of fraud against any state agency or program. The other abortion resolution was a resolution regarding criminal liability for abortion providers. This resolution encourages the Texas Legislature to enact legislation which provides for criminal penalties against abortionists found guilty of negligence in performing the abortion and/or wrongful death of the mother.
There was also one other resolution that was passed thanking Texas GOP chairman Steve Munisteri for the work he has done for the party these last two years.

Update:

Members of the Romney Campaign have sent this article above out to some of their supporters asking them to all get on here and on facebook and post comments bashing me and the Texas GOP for passing a resolution telling Romney to come to the Texas Debate. I have even had an email from a person accusing the Texas GOP of attempting to illegally withhold Romney delegates or something silly like that. Some of the comments have been "who cares about Texas" and "Don't those crackers know the race is over"

In response to some of the people who have emailed me telling me that the Texas GOP is wrong for passing this resolution and saying we are campaigning for one candidate over another, I have written the following message:


First of all, please know that I am only one person on the SREC so I do not speak as the official spokesman of the Texas GOP in this response to you. I am involved in what goes on and I have my own insight and opinion about what is going on and about what the SREC does. I have the 1st amendment right to post my opinions on my blog and on facebook just as you have the right to post you opinions online and email anyone you want.

Now on to my response

Please do not misunderstand what is going on or what the SREC has done. I do not know where you got the word withholding, but your information is incorrect. The Texas GOP cannot "withhold" delegates and no one, especially not me, has ever stated or implied that Texas GOP would withhold Delegates from Romney.

The entire SREC (including Romney supporters) passed a resolution this past weekend telling Romney that "it would not be received well by Texas Republicans if he does not attend the Texas GOP debate." I did not even propose the resolution and I was not the only one who voted for it. Everyone did.

The State Party is not using Party resources to campaign for one candidate over another. The elected individuals on the SREC passed a resolution expressing the majority opinion of the SREC and of Texas voters. We can do that and passing this resolution does not constitute using party resources or funds to campaign for one candidate over another. The majority opinion that we expressed in the resolution is that Texas wants to have a voice on a national level and we want the frontrunner to come to our debate. We are the biggest Republican state in the nation! The SREC is standing up for Texas and we are doing our job. We would have passed the same resolution for any other candidate that decided not to come to the Texas GOP debate. The Texas GOP is about promoting Texas and making us relevant. We are not about slipping off into irrelevancy because we are afraid to speak up because it might hurt someone's feelings. We are standing up for and promoting the interest of Texas Republicans by putting on this debate and telling the candidates that we will not be happy if they do not come.

you can read the exact text of the Resolution Here: http://hardincountyconservatives.blogspot.com/2012/04/texas-gop-passes-resolutions-warning.html

As you can see from reading the resolution, it does not say we will withhold anything. This resolution is basically a warning to Romney to show up to the debate or else Texans will not be happy. If Texans are not happy then they are likely to vote for someone else and 155 delegates is a ton of delegates for Romney to gamble with in a race where every delegate is needed to secure the 1144 delegates needed to win the nomination and avoid a brokered convention. Why is it wrong of us to tell Romney that it would not be in his best interest and could hurt his delegate county if he ticks off Texas voters by not coming to our debate? Again, we would tell the same thing to any other candidate.

Texas is tired of not getting a voice. Texas is tired of everyone saying the race is over before Texas gets a chance to vote. Texas is tired of no one ever wanting to come to do a nationally televised debate in our state because our state does not matter. Texas is tired of our vote not counting. In my opinion, bullying is the media and a candidate saying that the race it over when it is not. The race is not over until someone gets 1144 delegates. That might very well not happen at all and there might be a brokered convention. Yes the liberals forced Texas to push back our election date, but even so, Texas still can and should have a say because no one, not even Romney, will have 1144 delegates by May 29 when Texas votes. The race will still be on when Texas votes. Texas has a chance to have a nationally televised debate to showcase the candidates to Texas voters. It will be a huge snub if the frontrunner does not come to it would it not?

So so if you are in the Romney campaign then please urge him to come to this debate and this will all be settled. It could have never happened in the first place!

From what I understand, the Texas GOP has bent over backwards to accommodate him and all other candidates regarding the date and location. He can let us know what date or location works for him. We want the candidates to be able to work around their schedules. That is why we do not have a final date and location. We want to accommodate the candidates.

With all that being said, I want to make it clear that I personally will support the candidate who wins the nomination. We will all join together to defeat Obama when someone wins the nomination. No one has won the Republican Race yet though and until someone does I am going to stand for Texas to have a voice in the race. I am going to stand for Texas being relevant again and promote Texas getting on the national scene with a televised debate. We all have the right to support who we want and fight for what we believe, but I do not think you will find anyone on the SREC who is not going to join together with the final republican candidate to beat Obama.

    2. Actually Romney will stop the DISATOROUS Obama administration. If you don't see that . . . your beyond any conventional help. Do you even care about what is happening to the United States? Romney is a professional business executive and no matter what you say, Romney is the best chance this country has to restore itself and escape Obama's ruination of America.

    2. Rick, Newt and Ron just want to beat up the front runner and the front runner wants to focus on Obama. This has moved beyond a debate being the best way to get word out. Why lead the people who don't have a chance at collecting the delegates along? Spoilers is all they are at this point. If they had any sense of knowing what the best thing for the party is, they would bow out long before a debate is requested. Let's just get the voting done and move this thing forward. Whether they make fools of themselves or not, no more debates from here out.

    3. If they cared about their COUNTRY they would withdraw. They have no chance and staying in the race is just taking energy and resources away from defeating Obama. Romney should act as if they do not exist, unless they win a state, and then he should congratulate them and move on.

  4. Are you the official Republican Party of Texas? Who gives you the right to do this? Many people nationally are hearing about this and will flood with commentaries on this NOT favoring what you are doing. It is time for you to look at the Math and come to reality. By the way is this instigated by Evangelicals in your state?

  15. This is ridiculous to expect Romney have a debate. What is wrong with you, Mr. Bellow? Don't you care about our country? All you are trying to do is stir up trouble among the GOP and just prolong and prolong until we have a brokered convention which will be disastrous for our party and for beating Obama. Nobody is victimizing Texas for Pete's sake. We need to get behind Romney and stop this nonsense. Americans are sick and tired of hearing Santorum and Gingrich's whining, and they are both so far behind it won't do them any good anyway.

  17. There will not even be a brokered convention - the path is clear for Romney to win the needed number of delegates - even if you took away all of TX. Come on TX, wasn't running Perry embarrassing enough for you folks - get a clue!

  23. "Members of the Romney Campaign have sent this article above out to some of their supporters asking them to all get on here and on facebook and post comments bashing me and the Texas GOP for passing a resolution telling Romney to come to the Texas Debate."

    No I (Evan) I'm here not to bash but to point out the obvious. You are not the brightest bulb in the book to think that:
    1) After 20+ debates GOP voters are screaming for another GOP debate. Can hardly wait...
    2) Santorum can win. Do you understand the math? Not hard to figure out that the number 2 guy is now 377 votes behind Romney - that is a huge gap with no sign - none - of Rick being able to make it up in up coming states. Rick would need to win big in most of the remaining states to have a chance. Sorry not going to happen.
    3) This will show that Texas has a voice. What will this great debate provide? According to you its only purpose is to prove you "can't mess with Texas". Now that sounds like a good mature reason to force another stupid debate. This will not show that Texas has a voice - other than shrill Romney bashing be some members of the Texas GOP.
    4) Republicans around the country will appreciate the Texas GOP threatening our most likely nominee (see #2). "We basically told Romney that if he does not go to the debate then we will take it to mean that he does not care about out large Republican state and therefore he should not get any of our delegates." Yes we Republicans love it when other Republicans act like Union thugs and ACORN activist.

    So I'm not here to bash - just pointing out how childish you come across. I know I sure do not want to "mess with Texas" Oooooo... scary.

    Now that I got my childish side out, let me get serious. The current president needs to go! I have four kids that I am very worried about and what they are going to inherit from the Manchild in office. Your actions do not add anything positive to the process and show a level of pettiness that I would expect from someone like... Obama, but not fellow Republicans that care about getting Obama out of office.

    Those Romney supporters who voted on this (if any really did support this) are idiots. How does one more debate help at this point in the process? It gives some free publicity to those candidates that have fallen way behind Romney - but in no way does it help Romney even if he has a good debate. Hey Texas - we have had over 20 debates, the rest of the country is sorry that you feel like you are being ignored, but we want the process to be over! Maybe a nice cup of warm milk before nap time will help you feel better.

  26. I would also Like to Comment. I am a supportor of Mitt Romeny and like so many others commenting Gov. Romney did not put me up to this. I am worried for my county and most important thing here is defeat Obama. Not who is the most conservative. Romney is as much a conservative as anyone else in this race. Look at the facts in March 31. 1995 Rick Santorum stood with Arlen Spector when he was running for the Presidency at a Pro Choice rally, God forbid; and that was part of Spector's platform. What is this debate all about-- many questions and thoughts appear to be for no good purpose. I will not support any of the other candidates in this election. I look at both Santorum and Gingrich as having no humbleness to see the writing on the wall and having no concern for this country in any way shape or form. They have lost; time for them to get out for the good of our country.

  27. Just as the Supreme court will tell Obama he cannot force people to buy a product (Healthcare), Some Texas legislators cannot force or Blackmail Romney into a debate where he has nothing to gain. But he will have several amazing and very charismatic rallys in Texas.

  28. This is absurd. You sound like a stubborn little child. Texas is a huge State and there are many rational, intelligent people who don't care about you or your "resolution". Besides, by the time Texas comes around At the very least Santorum will be out (after a humiliating loss in PA that is looking more and more likely). So you can have fun with your fun little debate of irrelevants, debating birth control on their moon colony while Romney is debating the real issues as the GOP nominee against Obama. Texas is a great State, I have lived there for a few summers and I did enjoy it, but people like you are giving it a bad name and are an embarrassment to the entire Republican party. ... oh, and I was not asked to do this by anyone. It doesn't take a genius to recognize when something needs to be responded to.- Daniel Barker

  29. Boy oh Boy! Looks like Texas is about to make an even bigger fool of themselves. Wasn't the Rick Perry dumpster fire enough for them already? These Santorum & Gingrich folk need to grow up and start acting like adults. True conservatives at this point would be focusing their energy towards supporting Romney in making Obama a one term President. Actions like these only prove that you and your Texas cronies are sore losers or either first class bigots, because at this point a true conservative would be rallying behind Romney, not trying to blackmail him and his campaign. SAD!

  30. All I can saw is 'wow'. I am personally going to write Governor Romney to NOT even think about doing this debate.

  32. Romney should only agree to the debate if they promise to have Pres Obama there and make sure Rick, Newt, and Ron stay home so he only has to debate the other serious candidate in the race.

  33. Let's call a spade a spade. This is a setup, pure and simple, from the lunatic fringe of the evangelical movement, and you are just upset that Romney is too smart to walk into the ambush.

    The amazing thing is that you and your friends hate Romney so much, that you would rather have the presumptive nominee go to this and get savaged, than present a united front to Obama.

  34. I'm a Texan and in no way should this debate be held. I care more about my country than I do about some anti-mormon bigots getting their dander up in trying to help their whiney, endorsed candidate make some kind of last-ditch suicidal stand in this great state.

    Rick and Newt need to get a clue and bow out for the good of the country. My congressman, Dr. Paul, needs to do the same. This election is far too important to squander it on petty politics. Our kids' and grandkids' futures are at stake.

    I've met Gov Romney on several occasions over the years and found him to be a highly moral, intelligent and resourceful man who will be uniquely qualified for what this nation now needs. Don't let the propaganda hold sway - he's a conservative and will be a great president.

  35. Listen to the sheeple in the comments, how many of you got a free sandwich to post here?
    Romney is a chickensh*t neocon that will milk this country for every dime he can, just like Obama. A vote for Romney is a vote for the status quo. Do some research sheep and maybe you'll see the wolf before he bites you.

  36. Romney isn't coming to this debate because every single person on that stage could run circles around him. Thats the reason the msm stopped having debates in the first place. Their favorite nominee made a fool of himself every single time. I'm gonna laugh so damn hard the day it comes to a brokered convention.

    Holy shit the people of America is stupid enough to vote for Obama 2.0 to get rid of Obama 1.0. They have the same donors,same policies and lie a lot. They ARE the same!
