Romney: ”If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.”
But besides us now being safer because of Mitt's heroism, the rest of the far right might not be feeling the Mitt love as much as he would hope, especially Focus on the Family chairman Dr. James Dobson. Dobson doesn't seem too impressed with his choices this time around and says that he and many of his followers will be sitting this one out.
“I am deeply disappointed the Republican Party seems poised to select a nominee who did not support a Constitutional amendment to protect the institution of marriage, voted for embryonic stem-cell research to kill nascent human beings, opposed tax cuts that ended the marriage penalty, has little regard for freedom of speech, organized the Gang of 14 to preserve filibusters in judicial hearings, and has a legendary temper and often uses foul and obscene language…. Given these and many other concerns, a spoonful of sugar does NOT make the medicine go down. I cannot, and will not, vote for Sen. John McCain, as a matter of conscience.”With todays announcement, we have Conservative talking head Rush Limbaugh's last hope out of the race, right wingnut Ann Coulter pledging to support Hillary Clinton, and the religious right talking about staying away completely. Thanks Mitt!
