Rush Limbaugh just said that Time Magazine is saying Romney may concede in his CPAC speech later today.


Romney has suspended his campaign.

Hopefully Romney has just cut a deal to be McCain's VP.

Just in case this doesn't happen:
Romney basically needs to win all the remaining delegates to get the nomination. This is mostly because Huckabee is holding many delegates that may go his way. He is mathematically eliminated but refuses to drop out to keep control of his delegates. However, if Huckabee stays in the race, there is a chance McCain will not win enough delegates and end up in a brokered convention. Perhaps there will be a scenario where McCain will need to make a deal with Romney if Huckabee does not have enough delegates to get over the top. In that case Romney has good leverage to become Vice President.

I can't see Romney being a Vice President. He has been an executive all his life. I say wait it out, make a lot more conservative/GOP friends and run and WIN in 2012.

This is an incredible speach!!!
Why didn't he give it about 2 months ago! He would be in first instead of McCain!

I've said before that there is nothing McCain could do to intice me to vote for him, but I'll admit it... if Romney was VP I'd vote for McCain. Not sure I can picture Mitt going for the #2 spot, but I hope I'm wrong.

"Hopefully he cuts a deal with McCain for the VP"

Are you kidding me? Better to drop and fight some other day for principle then to sell out. Stop these unprincipled posts! The point isn't about having office, the point is developing principled arguments that revolutionize politics. just confirmed the announcement at CPAC. Mitt, you are still the man and my hero. MR 2012!!

I wish that could happen so I could at least vote Republican this time. However...come on, this is McCain we're talking about. He'll probably pick Graham or Liebermen. Lets do whatever we can to get Mitt Romney in there for 2012, we will certainly need him.

Why on earth would Romney ever want to be VP under McCain? Romney understands that in order to be effective you need to build an amazing team of leaders in the administration. McCain is not one of those extraordinary leaders. He is a guy who graduated at the bottom of his class. He was unfortunate enough to end up getting shot down durin the war. He will make a poor leader and he will get trounced by the democrats this November. Better to bow out, stay involved in conservative movements, causes and stay involved for four years while the democrats preside over a retreat on the war on terror, we suffer more attacks on the homeland, and while democratic legislastion heaps more burdens on the economy and on families to the point that our economy tanks, our nation tanks and the conservative movement comes out of the wilderness stronger, larger and with an irresistible appeal four years from now under the leadership of an amazing and irresitable leader in Mitt Romney.

Romney in 2012!!!!!

Well done, Mitt, from start to finish. America wasn't ready, but you have a lot to be proud of.

I am hearing the Master Schmuck is ALREADY trying to get Mitt's delegates in Michigan.

I guess we know how much HE cares about this country. It is all about Mike, all the time.

I am very disappointed to see Romney box out. Realistically, it was inevitable, and the way he suspended his campaign and the reasons he gave only set him up for victory in 2012. It only makes Huckabee look even more like the selfish moron that he is. And let's face it--conservatives will not vote for John McCain, and most independents will lean toward Hillary or Obama. He will lose in a massive landslide.

But hey--it took a Carter to get us a Reagan. So perhaps it will take a Hillary to get us a Romney?

A Sad Day, but a very graceful exit!

I'm so sad... I understand, but I'm sad.

Romney 2012!!!!!

Realize as well that McCain is going to lose in November. The country is hungry for change. The democratic turnout in even red states has been astronomically higher than republicans.

Romney may not want to play second fiddle to McCain, but it positions him well for 2012. Also, it would certainly encourage me to vote for McCain this year. I don't know if I could be inspired by a McCain/Huckabee ticket. McCain needs to balance the ticket and win back conservatives.

Rush just said McCain may be up there with George Allen, Mr. Macaca, to increase his conservatism. so be looking out for that one.

Mitt is a class act. He does not need to associate himself with the likes of McCain. Let McCain pick Huckabee so we can watch them go down in November paving the way for Mitt in 2012.

WHY couldn't Romney have just left his name on the ballot and see what happens??? The southern bible belt states are over and those are the ONLY states Huck won. Romney would have done well from here on out so why not have just waited until March 4 when he would've done well in a conservative states like Texas? Now, that awful Huckster is going to get all the attention for being the goofball he is!!
