Some quick reactions as Gov. Romney says it's closing time:

Hugh Hewitt: Governor Romney is an incredibly gifted man --intelligent in the way very few people are, charismatic, and blessed with an amiable openness and determined, strong character.

He is a good man, and his very successful run towards the presidency is a testament to his talents. His magnificent family represents an achievement in the private sphere that he shares with Ann Romney and which was reflected in his accomplishments in business, at the Olympics and in Massachusetts.

Because he is a very good man, a great conservative and an extraordinary patriot he is standing aside to allow Senator McCain's national campaign to commence.


Captain’s Quarters: Mitt made the right decision, and he made the announcement in the right place. He's a good man, and I think this will allow the Republicans a lot more time to find accommodation with John McCain.


Jim Geraghty: And he may have saved some of his best campaign moments for last. “[Dependency] is a drug, we have to fight it like the poison it is.” That got him a Standing O. If you’re gonna leave the race, this is the way to do it.


Allahpundit: In which Mitt himself answers the question posed recently by InstaGlenn about whether Romney 2008 = Reagan 1976. What’s the best thing about this? The goodwill it’ll earn him among the party establishment for not dragging out the primary? The fond memory it creates in the mind of the base of a man willing to sacrifice his own ambition to support victory in Iraq? The venom it’ll draw from the left about him using the war as political cover for his own failure? Or the fact that it backs Huckabee into a corner by framing the continuation of his own campaign as effectively furthering the Democrats’ plans for withdrawal?


Stephen Hayes: Mitt Romney withdrew from the race for the Republican nomination early this afternoon in an extraordinarily classy speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference…For those of us who raised questions about Romney's leadership on Iraq and his willingness to put winning there ahead of his political career, he answered those questions rather decisively this afternoon.


Mark Hemmingway: And with that speech, the good will he's engendered by his classy exit, and the support he enjoys from the conservative base, I think it's safe to say he may have finally laid many of the questions about his conservative credentials to rest. Too bad the timing is so unfortunate.


Krempasky at Redstate: And from now on, I will not be anymore critical than Mitt Romney, who ended his campaign a few hours ago with class far too rare in this campaign to date.


Lisa Fabrizio: Just came from listening to sublime writer Mark Steyn speak and the mood in the room reflected that of CPAC in general after the Romney pullout. It's like a pin has pierced the balloon of hope that many held out here and gloom seems to be settling in.
