That Mitt Romney bowed out of the Republican candidacy for President is no surprise, but his superfluous speech that came as part of the announcement was.
On the heels of that debacle, the Democratic Party rushed out an e-mail newsletter to solicit funds in order to "fight John McCain" as the only Republican contender:
We can't afford four more years with a President who drives the economy into the ground. We can't afford four more years with a President who fights an endless war in Iraq. We can't afford four more years with a President who gives tax cuts to companies who ship jobs overseas; with a President who can't get every American the health care they deserve; with a President we just can't trust.
The statement is an example of the typical hyperbole frequently used by both sides during a political campaign. I may agree with parts of it, but I don't like being slammed with requests for money. Where will the funds go exactly?
At any rate, it looks as if the race is now between John McCain and whoever wins the most delegates within the Democratic Party. I already know who I want in that regard, but it remains to be seen if I will get my wish.
