Mitt Romney has left the presidential race with these words:
This is not an easy decision for me. I hate to lose. My family, my friends and our supporters… many of you right here in this room… have given a great deal to get me where I have a shot at becoming President. If this were only about me, I would go on. But I entered this race because I love America, and because I love America, I feel I must now stand aside, for our party and for our country.
I will continue to stand for conservative principles; I will fight alongside you for all the things we believe in. And one of those things is that we cannot allow the next President of the United States to retreat in the face evil extremism!!
The GOP, whom some of us lovingly call God’s Own Party, won’t “retreat” in the face of extremism? I guess that’s why one of the front-runners is an extremist and the heir apparent is already being encouraged to suck up to the extremists within the GOP mere hours after Mitt’s resignation.
The Republicans may not run from an extremist, but they’ll damn straight vote for one, eh?
