I will be the first to admit that I am very disappointed that Rush, Sean, Laura and most of Talk Radio decided to cast their lot with Mitt Romney instead of the true conservative in this race Mike Huckabee.
I am not one of those people who will now say that Talk Radio’s influence is over and that they were reputed. I will simply say, they choose the wrong man to support and that they were wrong in this case. Romney’s endorsement of McCain today at this stage of the campaign only proves that for all Romney’s rhetoric about being conservative, he was simply playing the part of a politician and not speaking as a true conservative.
While I clearly think John McCain is a moderate and not a conservative, I have great respect for McCain as a true American hero. I disagree with him on many issues, but if he wins the nomination, I will vote for him over Hillary or Obama unless he chooses Mitt Romney as his running mate.
I have absolutely no respect for Mitt Romney. For all the Romney hype from Talk Radio that decided for whatever reason Romney was a better candidate then Mike Huckabee , Romney proved with his endorsement of McCain that that he was a politician first, a party man second, a quitter third and so-called conservative last. For all the attacks Romney made against both Huckabee and McCain calling them liberal, in the end Romney jumped on the me-too bandwagon to support McCain whom Romney called a liberal just days before.
There is a time to support the party candidate after he or she has got the necessary votes to win the nomination, but Romney’s timing just proves what a fake and fraud he is. The true conservatives that were duped into thinking Romney was a conservative did so with all good intentions. After all Rush, Sean, Laura and the gang promoted Romney as a conservative, therefore Romney had to be a conservative. Right? Well, if King Rush has taught many of us ditto heads one thing, it is to think for our-selves. Many of us conservatives saw through Romney’s scam and threw our support to the true conservative in the race, Mike Huckabee. Rush and others have tried to paint Huckabee as a liberal, but in this case Rush got it wrong. As most of us, we hate to admit we were wrong, but Rush and Talk Radio were simply wrong.
When McCain freed his delegates to vote for Huckabee over Romney in West Virginia, the Romney camp said there was collusion between McCain and Huckabee. The talking heads surmised that McCain struck deal with Huckabee and that McCain was going to select Huckabee as VP after Romney was eliminated. Today the Romney camp is putting out the possibility of a McCain/Romney ticket. If McCain ends up winning the nomination and selects Mitt Romney as his running mate, I will not vote in November election.
Although McCain is not my choice as President, I will support him if he ends up winning the nomination as long as he selects anyone else but Romney. If he selects Romney, me and millions of real conservatives will sit out the election and watch the Republicans go down in flames.
