Romney Calls It Quits

If this story is true and Romney is dropping out of the race, it garners a lot of respect from me for the guy.
Now is the time for the Dog of Wonder to get with Hugh Hewitt and the rest of the ultra right, hold their noses, and get behind the 'not a democrat' candidate.

UPDATE: Hugh Hewitt's tribute to Romney is here.

Bravo to Romney.

I've always liked him and thought he was the most "decent" of the candidates.

I'll vote for John McCain, and I'll even do it without holding my nose. He may not be the best conservative, but he's a great American.

Ah, but what to do in the primary next week? Vote for O'Bama to keep the Evil One away from the White House?

Virginia lets you choose which primary to vote in when you get to the polling place, if I remember correctly.

Truth be told, Hillary is more conservative than Obama, but if you balance Judgement with Visceral response, you almost always come up with giving the kid a chance.

Anybody know if it's a mortal sin to vote for a pro-abortion candidate in a primary? I don't want to risk eternal damnation just to not vote for McCain or Huck-a-bee. I'd rather throw away the vote and choose one of the candidates no longer running.

Ego te absolvo, CIV.

If you can't pull the lever for McCain, vote for Hillary. She's the Democrat most likely to lose the general election (I think).

Hillary is the Republican's choice. She is the 'red meat' who will get "the base" off their whiny butts to vote against her.
McCain's not perfect, but the rap against him is ridiculous. Laura Ing has gone down a notch in my book, as have the other shrill McCain haters on the far right.
As for the Mortal Sin bit, I don't see where it says in the Bible that you can be punished for voting YOUR conscience. Besides if the people who bought you Limbo can take it away one day, it seems to me that the whole Religion Thing might be a bit fluid when it comes to anything past the BIG TEN (and I don't mean Ohio State).
Props to Romney. Now, Huckaby. . it's your turn. . and "Dear John" Mitt as a running mate might help a bit, and Huck won't. I suggest you find a purple state like MO, OHIO, FLA, etc. and pick a favorite son who will help you win it. Worked for JFK (although Mayor Daly MIGHT have had a part in that one too).
