How did they get to Romney?

It's being reported that Mitt Romney is dropping out of the race for the republican presidential nomination.

This early in the race and with some considerable chance of making a last minute comeback (presumably as the conservatives wake up and realize that the republican party is being taken over by democrats posing as conservatives...) one is forced to ask, how on earth did they get to Romney? Did they threaten his children? Did they kidnap his dog? Was some terrible secret from his childhood uncovered? Just how is it that the republican electorate has been deprived of yet another choice?

The really disturbing part is that this isn't an isolated incident. The same pattern of transparent manipulations can be inferred in the democratic party. There are many liberal women I would vote for before I'd vote for Hillary Clinton and there are many liberal men-of-color whom I would vote for before I'd vote for B. Hussein Obama. But no one is being offered other options for change.

After all the office of the president is just far too important to be left to the choice of the common person.

  • It was a real shocker. I had Foxnews on when they broke the story. It really bothers me that they are trying to make us "conservatives" feel bad for "holding back" McCain's momentum or whatever. I'm kind of hoping that someone will emerge as an Independent candidate. It might not make much difference but at least then we wouldn't have to compromise our values. Or I guess we could just not vote.

  • Last year there was a Zogby poll which showed that an independent candidate could win the presidency on the issue of immigration alone.
