They are completely out of touch. I am sure some will say Perry and Gingrich are at fault for this but I am on the opposite side. It smells of corruption and back room politics. Gingrich is leading in your polls and you will not have him on the ballot? The only thing this did for me was make my decision regarding whether would vote for Romney in a national election. That answer is now NO. The GOP reminds me of the Dems in the 80s. They are completely self destructing. They cannot seem to get it...people are sick of BS politics. Obama might not even need to spend his war chest. Both candidates had the 10000 signatures. It is likely they went as far as to check which districts the voters were in and found one with 399 not the 400 required.
