Our own Jeff Fuller noted last night via email that Paul Weyrich was the number #1 signatory to the infamous MassResistance open letter to Mitt Romney. That is quite the turn around.

Yesterday, Weyrich talked to Jim Geraghty at "The Campaign Spot" on why he endorsed Romney:
"I felt it would come down to a contest between Giuliani and Romney,” Weyrich said. “I don’t want Giuliani as the nominee because a lot of our values voters will defect... I know the same argument is made about Romney, but eventually, I think those voters can be brought around. There is a hardcore group that absolutely will not vote for Giuliani… I don’t think they’ll go for a third party candidate, I think they’ll stay home. I think there’s no convincing them. I’ve talked to a number of these folks. Even though they recognize that Hillary is a real problem, they think that it’s better to have somebody bad like that than it is to have somebody halfway reasonable."
Weyrich next weighs in on the other candidates and why they didn't get his nod:

Fred:
“I’m on the permanent executive committee of the Arlington Group, which was formed to push for the Federal Marriage Amendment. We’ve got [Fred] Thompson who says he can’t support that. I can’t push this for the past several years and then say, ‘oh, that’s not so important.’ … I’ve been working with candidates for close to fifty years I recognize candidates with fire in the belly. I’ve got to tell you, I do not think Thompson really wants to be elected that badly.”
McCain:
“As for McCain, I can’t support him — McCain-Feingold is a dealbreaker, as far as I’m concerned.”
Huckabee:
“Huckabee, I came close to supporting him, and if we were running for some sort of religious organization, I would support him, but we’re not. He has compromised on so many conservative issues, I simply can’t be for him. Every time you turn around, he’s taking the wrong stand on a different issue.”

Pat Robertson endorsing Rudy is going to be a blow to Mitt.
