This is not unexpected. All major party figures will endorse Romney—with varying degrees of emotion and support. To do otherwise would be political suicide.
But as far as rallying around Romney...I think that I’ll pass. I received a Romney fundraising call this week wanting me to donate some amount (perhaps $100; I forget). When I declined, they asked for a lesser amount. I explained that I was a social conservative, and that Mitt Romney was my enemy.
Dead silence...for about ten seconds.
Then they hung up.
I don’t need someone to agree with me 100%, but I will support the Republican Party nominee when the Party nominates someone that is not my enemy.
That didn’t happen this year.
Maybe next election cycle they will seek my vote. Maybe not. But they will not get my vote by nominating a social (ahem; wink, wink) moderate.
“I explained that I was a social conservative, and that Mitt Romney was my enemy.”
But Barack Hussein Obama is your friend?
That’s sad that it came to that. What makes them think that abandoning/alienating the social conservatives will result in either political sense or the country being turned around from its present downhill slide?
