Posted on 04/17/2012 4:42:50 PM PDT by NormsRevenge
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., today endorsed Mitt Romney for president.
After the party's weekly Senate policy lunch a reporter asked the Minority Leader if now he was ready to endorse Romney.
"Yeah," McConnell replied. "I support Governor Romney for president of the United States. And he is going to be the nominee."
McConnell's announcement comes on the same day that Speaker of the House John Boehner endorsed Romney.
"As you have noticed, the party is in the process of unifying behind him. And I think it's going to be an incredibly close, hard-fought race," ..

Oh!! Now that is a great surprise.
McConnell and Boehner, their endorsement is another reason not to vote for Romney.
Well, that took a lot of courage!
I can’t wait for this guy to get dumped. He makes Dole look like the greatest Majority Leader of all time.
Big news! The people that destroyed Reagan’s Republican Party endorse Romney! The GOP-e shouts “Laissez les bons temps rouler”!
One mind-numbed RINO, totally worthless, who endorsed a very strong devout Democrat. Wow!
And he is going to be the nominee.”
His RINO establishment endorsement doesn’t bother me, but his remark above ENRAGES me. There it is, telling people who to vote for. He can go to &%$*!
That name rings a bell...but I can't remember where from?
Hasn't he retired yet?
As a Kentucky resident, I hope like crazy a tea party candidate eventually dumps this guy in a primary.
I guess he swallowed his principles and endorsed someone who is way more conservative than he is.
Unify all you want, “party”, but count me out. I don’t vote for abortionists and homosexual lovers.
That FACE! He makes Forrest Gump look like a pitbull.
What!?? Not while there are millions more to be skimmed off of taxpayer dollars for his offshore bank accounts!!
The second best is for him to just drop dead and draw in the sympathy vote for the Republicans in the Fall elections ~ taking it away from the Democrats who have already planned for Biden to "take one for the 'bama" (whether he knows it or not, but that's the Chicago way eh).
Yep. This is another sign that the GOP-e is only about fellow elites maintaining power.
Our Republic, our Constitution means nothing to Rove, Mitch, Boehner, and all the rest of the power-lusting, arrogant, morally degenerate GOP-e.
Ann Barnhardt perfectly describes Mitt and the rest of the GOP-e slime at her recent speech in Colorado Springs. As an aside, it was the most amazing speech I have heard in decades (saw it on her site).
“The coalescing around Romney that you see is resignation, not support, certainly not enthusiasm.”
That accurately sums up the situation. The best thing (and worst thing for us as a nation) Mittens has going for him is that he’s up against the worst POTUS in American history.
” I cant wait for this guy to get dumped. He makes Dole look like the greatest Majority Leader of all time.”
NO JOKE !!!!
Rotate the Capital amongst the States, DC IS THE PROBLEM, NEVER THE SOLUTION
The Taliban was thinking about nuking DC, but decided against it, because it would be the best thing to happen to the USA since sliced bread was invented in Chillicothe Missouri.
There really is no good reason to keep the GOP around.
RNC and GOP must be destroyed, bunch of blueblood country clubbers with greedy pulled back wives playing REAL AMERICANS for fools.
THE PARTY IS OVER.
Hey "Mitch", good luck on Planet Kolob!!!!
What did she say, sand?
Bring on a real conservative party....enough is enough.
Did anyone hear El Rushbo today slobbering over Mittens? I only heard part of it in the car but sounded that way anyway.
Maybe I heard wrong???
Crazy DayZ ahead, and hot too.. sometimes the cost of victory is truly bittersweet.. might need some of that lemonade later. ;-}
Your opinion has been deemed not Conservatively Correct around here. Most FReepers seem to prefer sour grape juice.
I don’t really think the party is unifying behind Romney. Alot of conservatives are not going to turn out this November other than to vote in the Congressional races. Romney will have to work the planned parenthood meetings and global warming conferences to make up the deficit. Oh, and get Sheriff Babeau to work the bathouses and gay bars.
At about the 6 plus minute mark, she starts to speak about Mitt. I have rarely seen anyone speak so passionately about the dangers our Republic faces and of the need to wake people up and have them face the reality of what is going on in D.C.
I’m afraid you heard right.
And Levin is studiously avoiding the fact that there is still a Republican primarygoing on with nearly half the states that have not yet voted. Not one word tonight. Just more preaching to the choir about Obama. Pathetic.
Welcome to FR.
Another shock like that and my old ticker is going to plumb give out.
No I’m serious...
Who is the conservative alternative that will unseat Obama?
This election is like choosing between eating a horse crap sandwich and a cow crap sandwich.
One order of Jell-0-spined wimp for the Romney table!
Someone find that pic of two rhinos (the animals) copulating as posting it sums up this endorsement.
Two worthless piles of crap endorse another worthless pile of crap.
Sounds like all crap, all the time from the Republican Party to conservatives.
I gave up on Hannity a long time ago. And the way he kept up the coverage of the stupid “war on women” issue last week.
Limbaugh always plays it close to the vest but he has now obviously crossed over.
Look talk show hosts, we ALL know that Obama is bad..okay? and we ALL want to see him defeated. But please don’t treat us like children as though we need to be enlightened as to how awful another four years of his reign would be for our country.
It’s just that there are some of us who see a different path to achieving that goal.
Consolidation of the Federal Power Bloc. Getting prepared for the Big Take.
15 Trillion Big Take.
If he did it’s cause he wants Obama to lose even if it means a RINO. Even conservatives that don’t like or trust him in their hearts are gonna be singing his praises or at least not attacking him. That’s called politics.
You know what they say about being handed a
lemon sh*t sandwich? Find a way to make lemonade I don't want to know!!!.
“Thats called politics.”
I'm with Newt until the end.
""This election is like choosing between eating a horse crap sandwich and a cow crap sandwich."
It really is, and I choose neither.
“..The Party Establishment has really given us a lemon. You know what they say about being handed a lemon? Find a way to make lemonade.”
Very well said!
The country handed you a lemon with Obama. How'd you make lemonade out of him? If you found something that worked on him, let us know, because the same thing should work on Romney. Is there a Deliberalizer Ray?
