Former Governor Mitt Romney withdrew from active pursuit of the Republican presidential candidacy today. Drawing on his vast military experience and knowledge, Mr. Romney determined that continuing in the race would aid the Democratic Party candidates, who favor ending the undeclared wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and would weaken support for Republican frontrunner and war supporter Senator John McCain.
“In this time of war I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror,” said Romney. In other words, he’s no quitter; Democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are quitters because they wish to end the nation’s illegal, undeclared wars.
John McCain is a decorated Vietnam War veteran and former prisoner of war. Mitt Romney was never in the military, but he was seriously injured in a car crash in France during his Mormon missionary work. Just sayin.’
