Very disappointing that he would do that!

I guess Romney is about as "conservative " as McCain.

Well, I will never vote for Romney in the future either, he’s written off his chances as I hate a “company man”

The only way we get a brokered convention is if conservative non-McCain delegates were to plan and stage an insurrection at the convention, and then convince enough McCain-pledged delegates to join them. I don’t see that happening, and it is highly risky besides. Another (remote) possibility would be for a conservative “dark horse” candidate to announce his (or her) candidacy right now as a way of stopping the McCain bandwagon and certain disaster in November.

Crap. I was hoping he would not quit until after Pennsylvania’s primary so I could vote for him. I guess I will write in Rick Santorum.

There has never been a brokered convention in the modern primary era. Brokered conventions had about a 40 year period and then they were gone 50+ years ago.

McCain is certainly more in line with Mitt’s core convictions if you look at Mitt’s extensively liberal record. I hope Juan would not be stupid enough to put another liberal (Romney) on his ticket. That would not be the way to try to woo conservatives.

No distortion. Jesus and Lucifer were two brothers vying against one another to be the Redeemer so all of us other spirit children of the Mormon god could potentially become gods too. That isn’t a distortion. That’s the sad reality of Mormon doctrine.

I voted Romney in the primary because Fred Thompson had made it clear that he was out and McCain and Huckabee were entirely unacceptable. McCain because of his legislative record; Huckabee because I find it offensive to try to “trade on faith” as a Christian in either politics or business. I went Romney only because of those factors. It was after that vote that Romney suspended his campaign and I was afraid that he might give his delegates to McCain.

LDS people think that we all are brothers, so that happens to include Jesus and anyone else. Huckabee feigned ignorance and tried to make it sound like Mormons worship Satan just like Jesus. 1) It was a stupid low blow, and 2) As a trained religious guy, Huckster should know better.

“With this move, I disagree. I’m a huge “Mitt”en...but I just can’t stomach McCain. However, I’m sure Romney has his eye on 2012, just like Reagan had his eye on 1980 in ‘76.”

Well: why not privately lobby — maybe with your delegates to trash The Huckster’s dream chances — McLame to be his Veep and then wait for that old codger to kick two years into his term? That would make him POTUS by 2010 — a whole two years earlier.

And BTW: Romney is no Ronaldo Reaganez.

So, the only question mark that remains is the running mate. Will it be McCain/Kerry or McCain/Lieberman? Or perhaps if Juan’s good friend Hillary Clinton doesn’t capture the Dem nomination, McCain can give her a spot on the “Republican” ticket.

Worst mistake he could ever make. He should say goodbye to his 2012 hopes.

And Huckabee is a fool for taking out all his frustrations out on Romney and ignoring McCain...I guess this is Mitt’s payback.

"Quite pleased."

Speak for yourself. Now Romney's just another a-hole like the rest of the "conservatives" who are endorsing that stinking RINO.

I'm voting for a rat president, whoever it is and praying we get more conservatives into the house and senate.

They'll fight harder against socialism coming from a rat president than will against the same socialism coming from their own "Republican" president.

I don’t think so. I’m not a Romney fan, but he was better than McCain or the Huckster. I wasn’t upset when Fred endorsed McCain or Duncan endoresed the Huckster. So the two guys that I would have voted for endorsed the only two guys I wouldn’t vote for. They just about have to endorse somebody... It’s a yawner to me.

About the same as Id feel if he threw his support behing Huck.

With Cain, Huck and Rom, we were in a lose, lose, lose situation no matter who got the nomination. It was only a matter which single-issue preference you were going for: WOT, Abortion, Economy--or some combination thereof.

All three sucked wind IMHO.
