That's a great story! One of those arrested for simply trying to record the public proceedings being hijacked was elected caucus chair upon reconvening. :) Regardless of which Presidential candidate you support, that's a positive thing.

As for the Paul supporter mentioning Paul being undercounted in the media's portrayal of the delegate counts, that's actually quite true. It doesn't seem likely that anything will stop Romney from reaching the necessary delegate count to arrive at the June convention uncontested, but the vast majority of the delegate counts are still actually completely unknown. Most states do not have Utah's rule binding the delegates to the general straw poll vote on the first ballot. Many states have ended up having delegate nominating conventions which -- in the few where Presidential nominee preference is known -- were overwhelmingly won by Ron Paul supporters who are much more likely to go the distance in support of their nominee. It probably won't matter much, but it seems likely that both Romney (of course) and Paul (perhaps surprisingly) look likely to actually comply with rule 40b which requires a majority of delegates for placement on the Florida national nominating convention ballot.

President Obama, and the Democrat party will be completely unprepared to deal with a Ron Paul Candidate. Many Democrats like Ron Paul, but the RINO's would prefer Obama to a real Fiscal, and Constitutional Conservative like Ron Paul.

This Latter day Saint supports Ron Paul and the Constitution he defends!
