NEWS: Romney and McCain Shake Hands!
Republican voters pleased by flimsy gesture of party unity.
Former Republican presidential hopeful and superduperdeeduper rich guy Mitt Romney announced Thursday that he is backing Sen. John McCain in his bid for the Oval Office. In his speech he called McCain a "true American hero" in reference to the Senator from Arizona's time spent as a P.O.W. in Vietnam. Now this is certainly a far cry from what he said of McCain on Jan 28th.
“If you ask people, ‘Look at the three things Senator McCain has done as a senator,’ if you want that kind of a liberal Democratic course as president, then you can vote for him,” Romney told campaign workers. “But those three pieces of legislation, those aren’t conservative, those aren’t Republican, those are not the kind of leadership that we need as we go forward.” -- From Fox News.
And pollsters wonder why voters tell them endorsements mean nothing.
