For all the twists and turns that Mitt Romney has gone through to prove his bona fides to social conservatives, the reality is the man is simply an old school Rockefeller Republican. They weren’t as bad as the “compassionate” conservatives, who felt the need to cut taxes and spend like liberals – no, Rockefeller Republicans are much better stewards of the people’s money, they do want the people to have more of the money they earn. By the way, that is the nicest thing I can say about Mitt Romney. Today, the biggest liberal in the race for the Republican nomination is bowing out and throwing his support to moderate Republican, Mitt Romney.
There has been talk of social conservatives coalescing around one candidate, but as we are all individuals – that is just not going to happen. Personally, I say, keep fighting for your candidate, keep making those calls and finally, get out and vote. Get your neighbors to vote. At the end of the day, when the PEOPLE, and it will be the voters who decide the candidate for the Republican nomination, it will be up to us to make sure that Barack Obama goes home to Chicago, Hawaii or wherever the hell he sprung from. Huntsman Out, Throws His One Percent To Mitt Romney
Jon Huntsman will drop out of the Republican presidential race on Monday, a campaign spokesman told ABC News.
A source close to the Huntsman campaign said the former ambassador to China and Utah governor was “proud of the race that he ran” but “did not want to stand in the way” of rival Mitt Romney, the current front-runner for the Republican nomination.
Huntsman plans to endorse Romney at an 11 a.m. press conference Monday in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
After a disappointing third place finish in New Hampshire — a contest on which he had staked his candidacy — Huntsman vowed to fight on. In his concession speech in New Hampshire, he told his supporters: “I say third place is a ticket to ride, ladies and gentleman! Hello, South Carolina!”
But just six days from the South Carolina primary, Huntsman has said goodbye to the Palmetto state after all.
What Huntsman found out in South Carolina is that his Granite State blend of Republicanism does not work down in the South, nor would it work in the middle of the Country, it would only work on the coasts, where liberals flock like the lemming zombies they are.
