Kirk Inches Closer to Romney (DIABLO Alert)
WMAQ-TV NBC Channel 5 Chicago, Ill. ^ | 2011-11-15

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.

Looks like Kirk wants to go Sandusky all over Mitt.

What a douchebag. Cain HAS responded completely. Anytime you hear someone saying this it's their way of saying they want this to keep hanging over Cain's head and keep it alive.

Douchebag comment #2. Rise and rise? Romey hasn't had a lift in a poll since his high school vaulting team.

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.

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.

I’d be shocked if Kirk didn’t support Romney. This is a “Sun rises in east” type story.

He probably held off on endorsing RINO Romney because he was hoping someone even more liberal would get in the race. Romney pretends to be a conservative and that must annoy Mark Kirk. He misses the openly liberal 2002 Romney. But now Kirk realizes he has to side with Romney to avoid the possiblity of an actual conservative getting nominationed.

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.

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.

Ouch! But I mostly agree but I still dislike Specter more (for now).

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.

>> Kirk is so bad he makes Arlen Specter look tolerable. Ouch! But I mostly agree but I still dislike Specter more (for now). <<

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!

I did say for now. Hopefully Kirk will NOT be in the Senate for 30 years.
