Romney Surrenders

Today Republican candidate Mitt Romney sang his presidential-run swan song to the influential GOP Conservative Political Action Committee conference.

Romney said he will suspend his national campaign because going on would make it more likely for Democratic Senators Clinton or Obama to win..... "And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror."

Pleeeeze.... Romney quit because after his disappointing showing on Super Tuesday, and the realization that his low delegate numbers made it impossible to "get them to add up," as a good business man he wasn't going to throw more of his millions into a lost cause.

Sad that equating ending a misbegotten war to a "surrender to terror" is the pose Romney had to strike to get the loud conservative applause that was so muted during his campaign.

This leaves the unloved-by-Limbaugh-conservatives, Sen. John McCain, and preacher Mike Huckabee as the only GOP candidates left standing.... a choice between a latter-day Bob Dole and an Arkansas snake-oil salesman.

Romney wrapped himself in the flag, demonized his party's opponents, and chanted the new GOP mantra.... bomb, bomb, bomb.... as he made his exit.

His hawk-pandering leave-taking makes it likely Romney will be baaaaack.
