Romney Supporters Make The Sarah Maria Santorum Face

I just LOVE the fact that the CPACkers are alreadybooing the mere mention of John McCain’s name.

Mitt Romney ended his presidential run Thursday, telling a conservative audience that continuing the race against rival John McCain would make it more likely Democrats would win the White House — and “in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.”

Boos rose from the audience at the mention of McCain’s name – and shocked calls of “no!” as he made his announcement. One young man in a blue sports coat grasped his head in his hands, his mouth wide open as he watched Romney on-stage.


As his supporters filed out of the ballroom where Romney made the announcement, many carrying his campaign signs and merchandise, a moderator mentioned McCain’s upcoming CPAC speech – drawing an immediate and sustained chorus of boos from the crowd.

“I didn’t see this coming at all,” said Pennsylvania college student Andrew Coons, holding a Romney sign under his arm. “I was completely surprised. But this was an honorable thing for him to do.”

  1. I took the liberty of checking out the Freepi response. Careful not to trample on A’s jurisdiction, I just took a quickie look:
    First thing I read:
    I am going to refrain from callling you a name, but if Obama wins the Democrat nomination and you allow him to become President, then you might as well say it is okay to be buddy buddy with Osama Bin Laden. Anybody who cares about America will never do anything to help Obama become President. To do so would be traitorous.
    Second thing was someone posting the lyrics to “the Night they Drove Old Dixie Down”
    poor babies…

  2. “in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.”
    What a colossal dick. I wonder when Harry Reid and other prominent Democrats will demand an apology.
    Seriously. “Surrender to terror”? What the fuck does that even mean? That, come January 20th, after taking the oath of office, President Obama or Clinton will just hand the keys to the treasury and the nuclear launch codes over to al-Qaeda?
    We need to make some noise about this. Maybe we can cost Tagg a little more of his inheritance.

  3. “I didn’t see this coming at all,” said Pennsylvania college student Andrew Coons, holding a Romney sign under his arm. “I was completely surprised”
    Boy, they really do live in their own little world, don’t they? Too bad they don’t stay in there.

  4. You know, I live in the same town as that silly man, and I sometimes wonder what I would say if I ever met him. “Do you actually believe all that hateful stuff you said when you were running for President?” is about the best I can come up with.

  5. I love the smell of Republicans eating their own. It smells like victory.
    dr2chase, I don’t live in Belmont but I’m a Mass. resident. Never liked him. One of my friends had a great expression about Mittens: Gordon Gekko without the booze and the broads.

  6. The sad part is that by next week they’ll all be hailing McCain as a true blue conservative and the New Ronald Reagan and Our One True Savior and Jeebus Incarnate. Lack of a long term memory can be useful for True Believers.

  7. GC,
    What I hear through the grapevine (and I’m multiply connected, through town government, local business schools, and even day care) is that he’s a great guy, intelligent, smart, loves his wife, great kids. I’m pretty well liberal, but these are all things I aspire to myself. You’d like to think that this would be true of anyone who runs for president, but the stories I hear about Giuliani (from spouses of high-powered NYC lawyers) are that he’s batshit vindictive crazy (take what you read in the paper, and triple it — perhaps as bad as you can imagine). So maybe it’s not guaranteed.
    But the whole running for office as a Republican, I don’t get it, it’s like there was some sort of a checklist of positions that must be adopted, no matter how wrong they are. Massachusetts has some structural tax problems — anyone who knows a little bit about economics can understand that funding skilled-labor-intensive education with a property tax, and capping the property tax below inflation, is not going to work; the cost of skilled labor grows faster than inflation (and that’s a good thing). Mitt must know this, he must know that we’ve had little luck pushing the student-teacher ratio past 30 (and 15-20 is better) so don’t expect any breakthroughs there, but in the last downturn, he was all over how the “property tax is a stable source of revenue”. And pushing for the death penalty, puh-lease. We’re hardly overrun with crime (as a state, compared to others) and the places that have crime, we’ve fought it in the past with stuff like community policing. Death penalty’s expensive, and we have a tight budget, right?
    The basic problem was, instead of running Massachusetts, he decided to run for president, and running in the Republican party meant he had to act like an idiot, and I think that’s just sad, because I really do hear that he’s a better man than that. I’m frankly baffled. Maybe it’s part of some Republican hazing, that you have to publicly shame yourself by saying outrageously stupid things.
