Surrender to Terror

“SURRENDER TO TERROR”….Mitt Romney, classy to the end, explains his decision to quit the presidential race:

“If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Sens. Clinton or [Barack] Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror,” Mr. Romney planned to say in a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference.

So electing Obama or Clinton would be a “surrender to terror”? Republicans really know how to bow out gracefully, don’t they?
