Rush endorses Romney

Too little, too late, I'm afraid.

Let's face it. The time to rally around one conservative for those who dislike McCain is long gone.

Ingraham, Hannity, Coulter, Rush, and Beck all had plenty of platform and plenty of time.

McCain is far from perfect. I understand why all the rightwing pundits are having temper tantrums, but to pretend that Romney doesn't have his host of faults is silly.

We political junkies always make the mistake of thinking that the voters know every detail that we know. When the fact is they get a general overview and that is usually presented by the mainstream media.

Republicans want a strong leader. Some are deeply worried about illegal immigration and hear McCain say he will seal the borders. That is enough for them. Most of them don't even know what McCain/Feingold is.

They see McCain and they see pro-life, anti-spending, pro-growth, pro-tax cut war hero.

And they are right on all counts.

And anyone who says that it would be better to have a President Hillary for four years to show the country how much they really need a conservative is just crazy on every level of crazy. We have liberal Supreme Court judges all in their 70's just waiting for Hillary. We have our soldiers in Iraq who really don't want any freakin' lesson taught to Republicans. They want to finish the job they went to do. That won't happen under President Hillary and it's an insult to those who gave their lives to play politics right now.

I don't care who endorses who. I don't care who Rush wants to win. If the nominee is Romney, then we all get behind him.

If the nominee is McCain. Then we need to do that too.
