Writes Doug Wead:
"We are trying to make nice. Like our attempt to 'give' [Romney] the delegation from Arizona, an offer his man refused to [t]ake. So after three attempts to give him a majority we reluctantly won instead, thank you."
More from the Rev. Wead:
"[I]n Phoenix, Arizona, cocky Romney forces led by Nathan Sproul saw defeat snatched from the jaws of victory. Ironically, the Ron Paul forces came to the state GOP convention to play nice. They offered a deal. 'You know our knack for organizing?' they said, 'You know we have the numbers? Why don’t we make sure there are no surprises and nothing embarrassing. Your candidate has the nomination, we will give you 50% plus one of the delegation to Tampa, that gives you the majority, and let us have a nice delegation of the leftovers for our man too.'
"But no. The Mitt Romney forces insisted on scorched earth. 'You can have one,' they said."
