Surrender MonkeyPosted: February 8, 2008
So Mittens withdraws from the race. Why? Was it the money? Was it the party? Was it because he is a Mormon?
Romney, who spent more than $36m (£18m) of his own money on the campaign but failed to make a breakthrough on Super Tuesday, said he was standing aside for the sake of the party.
Or was it the fear of a Democrat in the White House?
“If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and frankly I’d be making it easier for Senator Clinton or [Barack] Obama to win,” Mr Romney said at the conference.
Or was it because he believed his campaign was aiding the terrorists?
“In this time of war I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror,” he told the Conservative Political Action Conference. “Because I love America, in this time of war I feel I have to now stand aside for our party and for our country”
Nope, he withdrew because he loves America.
