I just watched Mitt Romney's quitting speech on CNN. I have to confess I never paid much attention to him before and never heard him talk beyond a sound bite on the news. What a scary Mutha! He makes Bush sound positively reasonable! This guy is somewhere to the right of Attila the Hun! He is also very clever. He said the reason he is throwing in the towel is because America is at war and since either Hillary or Obama would quit the just cause that the country was engaged in, he just couldn't let the Republicans be divided. It is too important to defeat the Dems and save the country from the evil, defeatist "liberals". I reckon his thinking goes like this. He cozys up to the conservative right, which will serve him in good stead for the future. McCain will lose the election or die in office or be a one term President. Then he will be in an excellent position in four years for another run. Maybe he would like to run for Vice President with McCain?? In any case, he is one slimely SOB and I hope he never achieves high office.
