Skip to comments.Kirk Inches Closer to Romney (DIABLO Alert)
Posted on 11/15/2011 9:35:41 PM PST by rabscuttle385
Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk hasn't endorsed a GOP candidate for president, but it's looking more and more like he's on Mitt Romney's team.
Kirk said Monday the field is getting down to "Romney and the anti-Romney," listing all of the GOP darlings -- Palin, Bachman, Trump et al -- that have fallen by the wayside.
"The underlying story is the rise and rise of Mitt Romney," Kirk said.
In regards to the Herman Cain sexual harassment controversy, Kirk said Cain "needs to respond and respond completely."
"I do think his story is largely ending," Kirk said. "The critical thing is not what everybody thinks, but what caucus-goers in Iowa think and primary goers in New Hampshire think. My read right now it's looking very good for Romney."

Why not? Kirk is a RINO.
if kirk is against cain.... i will support him twice as much.
Looks like Kirk wants to go Sandusky all over Mitt.
That’s their gay life partner pose. Liberals and RINOs always like to do that to appeal to the gay vote. Kerry and Edwards couldn’t stop once they got started.
Oh, the suspense is just killing me! Who will it be, Mark? Who will it be???
I think that RINO is a term too easily thrown about here. I think DIABLO is a term that needs to be used more often.
Mark Steyn is da bomb.
Kirk endorsing a RINO? And this is news? I who did we expect this dope to back, a Conservative? Yeah right.
I’d be shocked if Kirk didn’t support Romney. This is a “Sun rises in east” type story.
When is that crooked Combiner douche gonna end the farce and officially become a Democrat ?
What scares me is the freepers who seem to buying the propaganda that scumbag Mark Kirk is turning out to be pretty good. I know Dengar's had a few slips of the Kirk kool-aid. If Kirk turned out to be "better" than most RINOs after he was instrumental in putting the gay agenda in the military and getting Obama's lame duck marxist agenda passed in December 2010 (a 180o flip flop from his campaign pledge and his House record, both of which I PREDICTED would happen!), I'd hate to see their idea of "worse" RINO. Kirk is so bad he makes Arlen Specter look tolerable.
RMSPers are joined at the hip and agenda..
“The underlying story is the rise and rise of Mitt Romney,” Kirk said.
Yeah well theres that story about the Roman Empire and its rise...
But then it fell...
Duh. Does this surprise anyone. I’m only surprised Kirk wasn’t on his exploratory committee eight years ago.
How stupid is this guy. It is a four way race in IA right now. It is ‘looking pretty good’ for Ron Paul, but I do not see this guy endorsing him.
You mean the same Kirk that lied about his military service, that Kirk?
Ouch! But I mostly agree but I still dislike Specter more (for now).
Milt and the latest candidate for Ms. Romney IV.
I did my part in that election, by voting for the Libertarian candidate, he at least was pro life, unlike Kirk. You, I and others sounded the warning about Kirk and too many people here had the philosophy of "vote for the guy with the "R" behind his name", he's better than the democrat.
I and others predicted at that time that those same people would be hollering "vote for Romney, he's better than Obama". I said it then and will say it now. No, he isn't!
By the way, I'm not Libertarian, that was the first time I ever voted that way, there were just no other viable options.
I'm still wondering which Kirk will do first, come out of the queer closet or switch parties.
I don’t see Kirk in that picture. He looks more like what would come out of one of those animal’s butts.
Specter was in the Senate for 30 years, Kirk has been there 1 year. Give Kirk 30 years in the Senate and I can gurantee you he'll do more damage that Specter (he already did an enormous amount of damage during his decade-long career in the U.S. House)
As bad as Specter was, at least he was a reliable conservative on 1 or 2 issues -- Specter had an A rating from the NRA, for example. Kirk is a reliable conservative on NOTHING. In fact, Kirk is so liberal on guns that Jim & Sarah Brady of the "handgun control" crowd actually endorsed him over a Chicago machine Democrat for U.S. Senate!
Now do you see him?
He’s sure looking aqueous these days. I always knew the man had no substance.
I did say for now. Hopefully Kirk will NOT be in the Senate for 30 years.
