  •  Not really fair.... (0+ / 0-)

    There are plenty of reasons to snark about Mitt, but this isn't one of them (other than his implication that to want Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama to win is to hate America and to surrender to terror).

    John Edwards used similar language when he suspended his campaign.  It's just what you say so you don't have to say "You don't want me.  I lost."

    That he couldn't do it without being nasty is the problem, not framing at as "for the good of the country."

    Even if that's true.  ;)

      "for ... our country" I wouldn't have written a rant on it.  Besides, now I'll have to hold my breath when i drive through Belmont, the stink will be too much to stand.

      I think it's the combination that makes one want to vomit. Saying "for the good of the country" when you mean "for the further destruction of everything this country ever stood for so we rich people can grab more money" is just hard to watch without the gag reflex. Pun intended. Well not exactly intended but since it happened I'll let it stand.

      Of course, that's why I'm on this blog and not the ones who actually believe he means the first version.
