Mr Ginsberg of the Romney campaign, fellow member of the Rules Committee, has put up amendment after amendment to stifle any hint of minority opinion over the morning and afternoon. From raising thresholds to debate or nominate to requiring binding of state delegates and even approval of delegates by the campaign, Ginsberg makes it clear that certain elements of the party — and presumably their votes — are not welcome here. His latest amendment apparently fatigued the body. His proposal to raise the threshold of submitting a minority report from 25% to 40% failed.
Mr Ginsberg may be able to control his little fantasy world convention, but he is pushing away a growing movement of the independent liberty voter.
