Romney Quits Race, McCain A Question Mark!

It is appropriate at this time of the pre-election speeches and campaign promises to keep in mind the words of the man I believe was the greatest Conservative American President, Ronald Reagan. He had this to say about diplomacy and the use of force:McCain
“We must be ever willing to negotiate differences, but equally mindful that there are American ideals that cannot be compromised. Given that there are other nations with potentially hostile design, we recognize that we can reach our goals only while maintaining a superior national defense, second to none.”
With that in mind I ask this question. Who do we have still in the campaign for the nomination of President, of either party, who represents this type of thinking?
Unfortunately the only candidate we had, who this blogger can trust the words coming out of his mout, Mitt Romney, has just quit the good fight. He has withdrawn from the race for President. First we lost Hunter than Thompson, now Romney is gone!

We all know that Hillary and Obama are anti-military despite their platitudes of support for our troops. Hillary and her husband hated the military, and proved it by slashing budgets and troops personnel in all areas.
Obama was aainst the war in Iraq when all other Democrats including Kerry and the Clintons supported the invasion of Iraq.

Although McCain is considered a veteran Hawk. I remember his spech on the floor of the Senate during the brief conflict in Somalia, when he demanded the withdrawl of our troops from Somalia.
In his announcement of his withdrawal from the Republican race Romney had this to say:
“Let us consider the greatest challenge facing America—and facing the entire civilized world: the threat of violent, radical Jihad. In one wing of the world of Islam, there is a conviction that all governments should be destroyed and replaced by a religious caliphate. These Jihadists will battle any form of democracy—to them, democracy is blasphemous for it says that citizens, not God shape the law. They find the idea of human equality to be offensive. They hate everything we believe about freedom just as we hate everything they believe about radical Jihad.
To battle this threat, we have sent the most courageous and brave soldiers in the world. But their numbers had been depleted by the Clinton years when troops were reduced by 500,000, when 80 ships were retired from the Navy, and when our human intelligence was slashed by 25%. We were told that we were getting a peace dividend. We got the dividend, but we didn’t get the peace. In the face of evil in radical Jihad and given the inevitable military ambitions of China, we must act to rebuild our military might. Raise military spending to 4% of our GDP, purchase the most modern armament, re-shape our fighting forces for the asymmetric demands we now face, and give the veterans the care they deserve!
Barack and Hillary have made their intentions clear regarding Iraq and the war on terror. They would retreat and declare defeat. And the consequence of that would be devastating. It would mean attacks on America, launched from safe havens that make Afghanistan under the Taliban look like child’s play. About this, I have no doubt”.

God help us if the Democrats win in November. I don’t like or respect a man who co-operates with the enemy, as did McCain with Feingold, Lieberman and Kennedy, but he is the only one left with the will to lead this Countries fight agianst Radical Jihadism. Vote: McCain!!!!
