Time magazine reports Romney will announce today, possibly at conservative CPAC meeting.
Will leave McCain Huckabee, (and, I stand corrected,) Paul in the race.
Chris Matthews commented, "Not the tone of a concession speech, not magnanimous. ...walked away as though he were the conservative candidate for president. He's going to walk away the way Goldwarter walked away (when Nixon won nomination)."
The Wall Street Journal reports Romney will tell the CPAC conservative annual conference:
"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 Sens. Clinton or [Barack] Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror,"
This is not an easy decision for me. I hate to lose. My family, my friends and our supporters … many of you right here in this room ... have given a great deal to get me where I have a shot at becoming president. If this were only about me, I would go on. But I entered this race because I love America, and because I love America, I feel I must now stand aside, for our party and for our country."
He tells CPAC, "unless we can change course, we could become the French."
"The best ally peace has ever known and will ever known is a strong America."
" Dependency is the culture killer. We have to fight it like the poison it is."
He ties pornography to welfare, then says,
"A nation... cannot stand when its children are raised without fathers in the home." He calls for a constitutional amendment to protect marriage... as though that will have any effect upon single parent families.
He goes on, "The greatest threat to America and the world-- violent radical Jihad. To them, democracy is blasphemous. THey find the idea of equality to be offensive. They hate everything we believe about freedom. (Yech, what Bush clone.)
Romney holds over 270 delegates. Will he back McCain or the only other remaining candidate, Mike "Doremus Jessup" Huckabee?
