Quote of the Day

Romney, apparently taking cues from Dick Cheney:
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.
Mitt Romney - February 7, 2008
Concession Speech at CPAC

So does he make a valid point in your humble opinion?

I think it's akin to fear-mongering. These sorts of rhetorical ideological bombs aren't productive and they themselves do violence to what really are legitimate differences of opinion on policy.

One of my biggest disappointments with Romney's campaign came in seeing him abandon the pragmatism and balance that made him so appealing to me in years past. Instead, from the inception of his presidential candidacy, he sought to paint Democrats. "Liberals," Hollywood as well as France, Europe, and anyone else with whom he might disagree out to be "bogeymen."

This quote caught me off guard as well. Haven't heard much talk of terror by anyone with the economic focuse lately. Is he jockying for a place on the ticket? (not that I think relations are good with McCain...)

Robere - I'm gonna' have to go with a no on that one Robbie.

Treidi - Just wait... '12 is just around the corner.
