Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney decided to suspend his presidential race and, literally, turn over the nomination to Senator John McCain. His concession speech contained insulting language which is inappropriate for a man who aspired to the presidential nomination of this nation. “If I fight on in my campaign,” he said, “all the way to the conventin, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And, in a time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be part of aiding a surrender to terror.”
To assume victory by either Senator Hillary Clinton or Senator Barack Obama signifies some sort of “surrender to terror” not merely insults these two outstanding Americans, but insults everyone in this nation who opposes the failed policies of Geroge Bush. Most Americans want this year’s presidential race to be one in which all parties maintain respect for the integrity and dignity of one another. We have had enough of George Bush slime and invective. Mitt Romney is a disgrace to anyone who voted for him. His filthy mouthed slanders belong in the garbage bins of history.
