Mitt Romney: Do the Right Thing [Updated]

Mitt RomneyMitt Romney is putting himself before the good of America and the Republican party. It’s time for him to do the right thing: he needs to drop out and endorse Mike Huckabee. Mittens and Mike are splitting the evangelical and conservative vote.

But while many (if not most) people have a visceral dislike for the phony chameleonic opportunist that is Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee comes across as genuine and appeals to everyday folks. There’s no doubt about it. Even lefties grudgingly admire the charismatic Huck. Many even fear him, since he’s so darn likable.

By selfishly staying in the race and splitting the conservative vote, Mitt Romney is ensuring that the only bus that will be in service come November will be John McCain’s “straight talk express.” That will surely shift both the Republican and Democrat parties to the left for the foreseeable future. Conservatism will be in tatters for a decade or more.

Mitt Romney and the GloveIf the Republican party is to survive intact, Mitt Romney must swallow his pride and overcome his gigantic ego. He must drop out if we are to have any chance at all of keeping Clinton or Obamanation out of the White House. If Willard is unable to make that sacrifice (due to a complete lack of principles), his supporters should seriously consider taking that big step themselves.

I lay out the argument in full in a guest post over at Blogs 4 Huckabee. I hope everyone, especially Mitt supporters, will read the whole thing. Mike Huckabee is the only candidate who can actually win against the DemocRATs. It’s time to get behind him. The time, my friends, is now.

If Huck seals the deal, then we can lobby him to put Sam Brownback on the ticket, if he doesn’t do so naturally on his own. A Huckabee/Brownback unity ticket would crush the far left kook ticket, hands down. Good always triumphs over evil in the end.

Update: Longtime conservative activist and founder of Free Republic Jim Robinson has endorsed Mike Huckabee!

  1. If we lock the stage doors, Mitt Romney will be too stupid to figure out how to get in. Then, he’ll be out of the race for good.

    Mike Huckabee is the only true conservative officialy left in the race. Since he will trick the Leftists into thinking that Stephen Colbert will be his vice-president (Colbert can be dumped at an opportune moment), he can easily win a general election. The only thing we have left to do is to block Mitt Romney’s access onto the debate stage.

    Just as planned…

  3. To anyone other than evangelicals, Mike Huckabee comes across as smarmy and self righteous. His I am not going to go negative, but here is the tv spot I am not going to run, was over the top for many. At this point, Mike is only there for one reason, to kneecap Romney.

  4. The last debate was the Romney/McCain show with Paul and to a much lesser extent, Huckabee. The Reagan library was’nt to kind to the ‘ol Huckster. Ron Paul will outlast him, even without winning a single state.

  11. It will be a cold day on Mars, which is exactly where Romney thinks Jesus is at right now, before he ever endorses someone who is a real Christian. Cults like the one Romney is so proud to be a part of are dangerous! Instead of entertaining the notion that those people will do anything good we should be figuring out a way to have them all arrested and deprogramed.

  13. “Instead of entertaining the notion that those people will do anything good we should be figuring out a way to have them all arrested and deprogramed.”
    So you’re going to ” arrest and deprogram” Donny and Marie Osmond, Mike Leavitt (health and human services), Harry Reid, Orin Hatch, Orson Scott Card, Gladys Knight, Steve Young, Brent Scowcroft (Nat. Sec. advisor of GHW Bush),Jonny Miller (golfer),Ken Jennings, Glen Beck, the members of SHeDAISY, and the entire Mormon Tabernacle Choir? Wow, you’re going to be very busy- and the democrats are worried about terrorists in Gitmo being detained unlawfully, and you want to arrest members of a religion (who are law abiding citizens) that you disagree with?
    To expect Mitt to drop out- when he’s WAY ahead in the delegate count over Huckabee is rediculous- If Florida hadn’t been a winner take all state, Mitt might be ahead of McCain right now (he was before Florida) If anything its Huckabee who should drop out and quit splitting the conservative vote- Remember we’re not electing a Pastor in Chief, we’re electing a President and there is no religious test for that.
