"And now, my sons, remember, remember that it is upon the rock of our Redeemer, who is Christ, the Son of God, that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall."

My Endorsement

For the last several months I have had two candidates in the top slot for my vote for the Republican Presidential candidate. I liked both of them. They were Fred Thompson and Mitt Romney. Initially I had been solely in favor of Mitt.

Mitt Romney had been a favorite of mine after he rescued the scandal ridden Salt Lake 2002 Olympics from financial ruin to become one of the best Winter Olympics ever. But as I learned more about Fred I realized he had a lot going for him as far as I was concerned. At this point I had the two in a tie for my endorsement.

While I am sad to see Thompson drop from the race I am heartened to know that Romney is still in the fight. My sentiments are echoed by many others across the blogosphere.

Patrick over at Born Again Redneck posts: Romney for President and leader of the free world

I was an ardent supporter of Fred Thompson until he unfortunately quit. He represented everything that I believe in politically. Romney does not stand 100% for my most cherished beliefs - maybe 90% but that's good enough for me.However, in the bigger scheme of things, Romney is our best bet. Thompson spoke the language of an America which has long since disappeared but for which I still pine. Romney speaks the language of the global market; of a world much bigger than our fifty states.

Jennifer at Now for Something Different posts: My Endorsement

Anyway, if my vote did count I would go out and vote for Mitt Romney. Governor Romney is the only candidate on the Republican side that is prepared and has the stamina to go against the Clinton attack machine.

You kept the faith Jennifer and now Romney may emerge as the antidote to McCain/Huckabee idiocy... Mike's America

Mike also posted the entry: MITT WINS MICHIGAN That was all that was said. That was all that needed to be said.

Gayle at My Republican Blog posts a big picture of Romney "ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT" on her side bar.

Evangelicals For Mitt: Why We Support Governor Romney
The 2008 election is for president, not pastor. We want a president who shares our political and moral values and priorities, can win in 2008, and can govern effectively thereafter by articulating and implementing a values-based governing strategy. This is just what Mitt Romney did as governor and will do as president.

This is just a sample of the blogs or bloggers that I have come across who are in support or leaning in the direction of Romney.

I could vote for Romney or Guliani, but NEVER for McCain.

Thanks for the mention, Kelly. I could also go either way with Rudy. He will do in a pinch.

Patrick, Yes, Rudy will do in a pinch. I was very happy to see you "declare" war on McCain. He just rubs me the wrong way. He reminds me of the school ground bully.

This comment may put a damper on the other comments in this particular blog entry, but I just voted today, and my vote went to Hillary.

Just on the side of interest: What made you decide to vote for her rather than Obama?
