F#@k You Romney

According to Mitt 's bailout speech yesterday, a vote for Hillary or Barack is surrendering to the terrorists. Message to Mitt: STFU and get the hell out of my country, you whiney, scared little man. You failed to mention that George Bush's GOP is the greatest terrorist enabling organization in the history of the planet. BTW, where's OSAMA?

This is short. I am not usually a profane man in my public writing, and think that I keep my political emotions fairly well in check. Not today.

I am goddamned outraged. And you should be, too.

In suspending his presidential campaign today, Mitt Romney said:

"If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror," Romney told the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington.
Mother of Gawd. What he's saying that if he continued campaigning, and got in the way of a McCain juggernaut, he'd feel partly responsible for electing either Clinton or Obama in November. And (by implication), if Clinton or Obama wins, then the U.S. has surrendered to the terrorists.

I'm not making this up. Go read it.

Who in the FUCK does Mitt Romney think he is that he can implicate either Sens. Clinton or Obama as terrorism enablers? Or if I support the Dems, that I AM, BY IMPLICATION, A TERRORIST SUPPORTER? What level of hubris is he exhibiting by saying that if the Democratic Party nominee wins in November, the people of the United States have "surrendered to the terrorists"?
