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.
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.
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.
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.
