Oh, Noes, Not Mittens

Rightwingers React


In a move that surprised everyone as it shows a unsuspected connection to reality by a Republican candidate, CNN reports Romney suspends presidential campaign:

(CNN) — Mitt Romney suspended his bid for the Republican presidential nomination Thursday, saying if he continued it would “forestall the launch of a national campaign and be making it easier for Senator Clinton or Obama to win.”

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is suspending his campaign.

“In this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror. This is not an easy decision. I hate to lose,” the former Massachusetts governor said.

“If this were only about me, I’d go on. But it’s never been only about me. I entered this race because I love America, and because I love America, in this time of war I feel I have to now stand aside for our party and for our country.”

Romney made the announcement Thursday afternoon at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.

I’m quite sure that the attendees at CPAC have nothing to worry about as there is absolutely no proof that John McCain intends to draft college Republicans for his hundred year war, or that he intends to allow ayatollah Huckabee enshrine his interpretation of the Bible in the the Constitution when he becomes Secretary of Religion in the McCain administration.

He suspended his campaign? As an old music theory teacher, I hope it’s not an unresolved suspension…

Well, I always felt a lack of resolve was his biggest problem.

He ran out of home states. Or maybe just couldn’t afford to set up residences in the rest. Even Mittens isn’t THAT rich, since all his residences have to be multi-million $$$ affairs.

You would have thought with all of the hate directed towards McCain he would have gotten some support, but apparently the couldn’t convince the rank and file to actually vote for anyone other than McCain, and winner take all is pretty brutal.
