WASHINGTON - John McCain effectively sealed the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday as chief rival Mitt Romney suspended his faltering presidential campaign. "I must now stand aside, for our party and our country," Romney told conservatives.

"If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror," Romney told the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.

How long is the article if we're considering that fair use of it? :lol:

Edit: My joke doesn't make sense now that DM ruined it!

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

Crazy...I think he would have been the republicans best candidate. If he wasn't Mormon people would have given the guy alot more respect. What a shame. The only thing I didn't like about him was how he dodged so many questions....and his policies..haha.


Well go Obama! :)

Nah i think most peoples problem with him had more to do with how his positions changed every 10 minutes when he saw an advantage to do so. There was no common principle or voting record throughout his entire candidacy or time in office.

"Jay Pandolfo's last game at Boston University was against the Wolverines," Madden said. "My job was to cover his line. Jay had scored something like 30 goals in 30 games that season. And that was his 31st game. Guess what happened?"

"We always joke about it now," Madden said. "Jay tells me: 'You shut me down that game and you've been shutting me down ever since. The only problem is, now you're playing with me. ' "

As opposed to Hussein Obama who doesn't have a real record because his favorite vote during his basic formulative years was "present".

I figured you'd like that.

Hey, if Romney wins in 2012, does that mean polygamy will be legalized? If that goes through, gay marriage can't be far behind...

You have to find it funny that the Republican candidate campaigns worked with each other so they could block Romney from grabbing too many votes and running away with everything because of how popular they preceived him. Only they ended up helping McCain running away with Super Tuesday.

I didn't mind Romney, although he wasn't my first choice. But like many are predicting this is the end of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.

I'd like to vote for Obama I really do like him but I'm too afraid hes going to pull out of Iraq prematurely and leave it a mess. I'm much more comfortable with McCain at this point.
