Mitt Romney dropped out of the republican primary. He claims it wasn’t because he’s a big fat losing loser, but because staying in would split republican votes and contribute to a Clinton or Obama win. He claimed, “I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.”
What?? Does he not understand how the primaries work? Because if, like he claims, staying in the race would split the republican vote, it would only split it among the votes for the republican candidate. It has nothing to do with the main election. So, no matter who the republican candidate turns out to be, once the primaries are over, those voters will be choosing between a republican candidate and a democratic candidate, regardless of how many votes Romney did or didn’t get.
But good try on the face-saving maneuver, anyway, Mitt. Unfortunately, it was about as believable as when my cat falls off the TV and does his casual little “I meant to do that” ass licking.
Oh – and I felt like I needed to come back and add that I couldn’t give a good shit about Mitt Romney. But if he were right that staying in the race would guarantee a Democratic win? I’d actually campaign for him.
