Romney Takes One for the Team

Mitt Romney dropped out of the presidential race today.

In a speech that touched on the messages of his campaign, Mr. Romney said he had come to his decision to help unify the Republican Party, and he charged that Democratic candidates, Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois, would not pursue the war in Iraq.

“Because I love America, in this time of war, I feel I have to stand aside for our party and our country,” he said.

That sounds to me like he’s saying that he’s doing us a huge favor by not running for president.

On behalf of a grateful nation, Mitt, may I say thank you for your sacrifice.
