Mitt quits; utters single dumbest thing any candidate has said so far

You probably already heard that Romney is “suspending” his campaign. Apparently the decision had nothing to do with the fact that he’s getting his ass handed to him from one coast to the other. No, the reasoning is far more noble:

“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.

Just … wow. A man who would stand up in front of a crowd and say something this stunningly stupid either:

A: Is too dumb to be out of the house off-leash.
B: Is training for the Olympic deceptathlon.
C: Knows that his family is being held hostage and will be killed if he doesn’t publicly annihilate his credibility forever.

Of course, if either Clinton or Obama are elected in November, then this remark will stand as a clear and uncontrovertible case of offering aid and comfort to the enemy. Which is treason, right?

  1. “And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror” , a odd remark ,maybe he knows more then we think đŸ™‚

  2. And, as I told you all, McCain’s the Republican. He’s their shot at using a “maverick” to trick moderates and conservative Dems into voting against Obama or Clinton.

    His mantra is “I’m a war president, too.” Let’s hoist him on that petard and beat him with rhetoric until he yells “Hold! Enough!”

  3. Well, A and B are definitely true, in Mitt’s case. How he ever fooled enough people in this state into voting for him still mystifies me.

    I already knew Mitt was an ass. But if pulling out of the race means we end up with a McCain/Huckabee ticket, which I am genuinely not sure the Dems can beat, I will be *furious*. I mean, drive-out-to-the-family-compound-in-Belmont-with-Molotov-cocktails furious.

  4. Didn’t Dick and George effectively surrender to terror by throwing the majority of American military might into Iraq instead of Afghanistan and Pakistan?

  5. From this side of the pond, this guy looks like a dumbass (as Red would say). Just plain thick really. This time of war? Surrender?
    The guy is a muppet, just a little worried where his supporters will turn to.

    Dr D has a point though, get the troops out of Iraq and get them into Afghanistan where the terrorists actually are.
