Going Out On a Less-Than-Graceful Note

From Politico:

Romney framed his departure as one of duty to party and country. “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 Sen. Clinton or Obama would win,” he said. “And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.”

“A surrender to terror” if a Democrat wins? Come on, man, that is so 2004.

  1. I read that quote and thought, “What an ass.”

    Good riddance.

  2. It was even stranger to see the clip on the news. He was smiling while he said these words that made no sense, at all. “If I don’t drop out, the terrorists win.”??

  3. Yeah well when your ego is that big, things you say to commoners don’t make sense. You wait, it will get worse. A lot worse. GOP sees their permanent majority slipping away.

  4. His entire speech was insane. There was a bit about “because I love America in this time of war, I feel I have to stand aside for our party and our country,” and something about finding and executing Osama bin Laden, which, I mean, yeah, that’s good and all, but it’s just weird to bring up killing someone – no matter how much they may deserve it – in a concession speech.

    And what’s with “suspending” his campaign? You’re quitting because you’re getting whupped on, dude, just say so.
