Romney withdraws, blames Democrats

Mitt Romney withdrew from the Republican race for president today. He took a good hard look at the delegate numbers and decided they didn't add up to victory.

He blamed Democrats (Repubs blame us for everything) for his early withdrawal, blasting Democratic Party candidates Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama as being weaklings on national security. Here are his exact words, according to the New York Times:

“They would retreat, declare defeat, and the consequences of that would be devastating.” Staying in the race, he said, “would make it easier for Senator Clinton or Obama to win.” Mr. Romney, who spent tens of millions of dollars of his fortune on the race, added, “Frankly, in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding the surrender to terror.”

So, if Romney stayed in the race, his campaign would aid "the surrender to terror?" His campaign would somehow strengthen the Democrats? Those tofu-eating surrender monkeys would then turn over the keys of American to the terrists, as Pres. Bush so eloquently labels everyone in the Islamic world.

Sounds illogical to me, but Mitt was speaking to the ultra-cons at the Conservative National Action Conference, who later booed the presumptive Republican nominee, war hero John McCain. This group is made up of the 32 percent of Americans who still approve of Bush's handling of the war in Iraq, the sinking economy, and pretty near everything else. Consider the audience....
