Mitt Romney drops out of presidential race

Postby Vaklor » Sun Apr 01, 2012 4:38 am

So, apparently, Mitt Romney has officially dropped out of the race. I'm still reading about it, but you can hear him officially resigning here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ

Also, son the proper video is:

Otherwise what you really link to is an ad and then a video. And that ain't no April Fools, son.

Then of course, I found out it was a fake. 8)

Hooray! Hooray! Now the current President will win for sure! We'll march onward, laying the groundwork to transform the United States into a Nordic-style social democracy! Why, we'll even shift people leftward enough to put a real, bona fide social democrat in office once they see how nice it is! Hooray!

Well...now it's back to reality, I guess. *sigh*

That is the problem with being a Northern Republican or Southern Democrat, you must know how to compromise since you are in a minority and if you ever run for a national election your party sees you as a traitor or someone not willing to stand up for their party's beliefs.

Southern Democrats have done okay in National Election nominations for the Democratic party, saying Bill Clinton and Al Gore(two presidential candidates) and John Edwards(a Vice presidential candidate) are some of their more recent candidates and were Southern.

I think that is due to the fact that Democrats are more willing to compromise and are more static in their political views. Republicans are simply sliding farther and farther right to the point where I will vote democrat if Romney loses the nomination. Sure I may not like Obama's policies, but he is sure as hell better than Santorum or Gingrinch.

I don't see how voting for a human windmill that will be so indebted to Far Right morons for his election(and needed for his reelection) will be any better.

Why would he be indebted? The far right Republicans will vote for him no matter what unless someone important (read: not Nader or Paul) runs for a third party. He might have to worry about the primary in four more years, but that doesn't mean that he will slide all the way to the right. Hell, if he does well as president major Republican contenders may stand aside to keep from fucking up a good thing.

If someone's willing to pander as much as Romney does, they aren't going to stop while in office.
