National Review endorses Romney. Finally a publication with the right idea. The article should be read in its entirety, but here are some excepts:

"Our guiding principle has always been to select the most conservative viable candidate. In our judgment, that candidate is Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts. Unlike some other candidates in the race, Romney is a full-spectrum conservative: a supporter of free-market economics and limited government, moral causes such as the right to life and the preservation of marriage, and a foreign policy based on the national interest.

"Romney is an intelligent, articulate, and accomplished former businessman and governor. At a time when voters yearn for competence and have soured on Washington because too often the Bush administration has not demonstrated it, Romney offers proven executive skill. He has demonstrated it in everything he has done in his professional life, and his tightly organized, disciplined campaign is no exception. He himself has shown impressive focus and energy.

"More than the other primary candidates, Romney has President Bush’s virtues and avoids his flaws. His moral positions, and his instincts on taxes and foreign policy, are the same. But he is less inclined to federal activism, less tolerant of overspending, better able to defend conservative positions in debate, and more likely to demand performance from his subordinates. A winning combination, by our lights. In this most fluid and unpredictable Republican field, we vote for Mitt Romney."

wooooot! This is a very nice endorsement as it seems National Review is held in high regard by "hard-core" conservatives. Since I'd never heard of the publication before this election cycle, though, how much does this really do for Romney? Any thoughts?

Great article. Lays out all the reasons why to vote for Romney and why not to vote for the other candidates in a well written, respectful, high level summary.

Kudos to NR. Good news for Mitt.


National Review is like the conservative Bible. It is truly an important endorsement. I am starting to think that conservatives have realized that they MUST do everything possible to keep the coalition together. Romney does that best and with the most competence. He will make for a great President. This is as much a rebuke of the rise of Huckabee as it is an endorsement of Romney. It is also out of fear that Giuliani will leave behind the key voting block and moral compass of the party. Huckabee must scare them the most which is why the endorsement had to come now. They worried that people were believing his twisted version of conservative principles. Thank goodness that the discipled editors of National Review didn't bite as well.

The Baptist Press has just put out a piece on Mitt Romney and his Mormonism.
