Endorsements of Mitt Romney remain tepid

PITTSBURGH — Rick Santorum dropped his presidential bid nearly a month ago, so his meeting here Friday with presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney would have seemed like the perfect opportunity to offer Romney his endorsement.

But even before the 90-minute meeting took place, everyone knew that no such nod would be coming anytime soon. Santorum, like pretty much everyone else who has run in the Republican presidential contest, has embraced the party's standard-bearer with a stiff arm. Of course they will work to defeat President Obama, they say. Yet few have been willing to get behind their party's winner with anything approaching enthusiasm.

When he dropped out of the race last week, Newt Gingrich damned Romney with faint praise, saying that he was no Ronald Reagan and then reiterating in an interview that he thought Romney was a liar. Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota got around to endorsing Romney on Thursday, a full four months after she dropped out. And some of the hottest stars in the party avoided weighing in until the race was a foregone conclusion — notably Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush, Floridians whose nods would have meant far more before the state held its crucial primary in January.

The country be damned.

Perhaps. I think the country is going to experience Judgement.

I get that your in earnest about your fears, but your sales technique is lacking, as is the GOPe's.

Rather than looking foolish for calling people traitors if they don't vote for the Mittster, tell me something about him that isn't something from a progressives' wetdream, because that's what I see when I see Romney.

If you want to sell your candidate, tell me something about him that makes me want to vote for him.

Is Romney a righteous man? Has he enabled the abortion industry to commit the mass sacrifice of innocent souls? There is a price that will be paid for this and yes, the country may be damned.

Does Romney support the Constitution? All of it? Including the part about the President being a Natural Born Citizen as defined by our Founding Fathers? If so, then why even mention Rubio as a possible VP? Failure to uphold one's oath and/or plotting to undermine the Constitution strikes me as treasonous. That includes failing to support ALL the Amendments, even the 2nd.

Ok, your turn. Answer the above questions correctly and I might reconsider my vote.

Otherwise, YOU should reconsider! There is a LOT at stake.

It depends how the RNC defines winning. You need to win 5 states to be on the first ballot at the convention. Are they going to count them as a “win” if Paul lost the popular vote but got a bunch of delegates that were supposed to go to someone else to shift their loyalty to him?
