Perhaps “The Speech” was well-delivered (full transcript here). I’m not going to judge that.

But it was also damning — perhaps fatally so.

This paragraph from “The Speech,” if and when the enormity of what Mitt Romney did in Massachusetts is ever fully understood, should — no, must — end his candidacy (bold, obviously, is mine):

“As a young man, Lincoln described what he called America’s ‘political 
religion’ – the commitment to defend the rule of law and the 
Constitution. When I place my hand on the Bible and take the oath of 
office, that oath becomes my highest promise to God. If I am fortunate
 to become your president, I will serve no one religion, no one group, no
 one cause, and no one interest. A President must serve only the common 
cause of the people of the United States.”

Strong stuff.

But Mitt Romney swore this oath on January 2, 2003 when he assumed the governorship of the state known as The Cradle of Liberty:

“I, (Mitt Romney), do solemnly swear, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and will support the constitution thereof. So help me God.”

Mitt Romney objectively violated that oath by ignoring the John Adams-authored constraints of the state’s constitution when he extra-constitutionally and unilaterally imposed same-sex marriage in Massachusetts. In doing so, now in his own words, he failed to “defend the rule of law and the 
Constitution,” and violated his “highest promise to God.”

As noted in yesterday afternoon’s post, this is not arguable.

The extra-constitutional handling of the same-sex marriage ruling is part of a much deeper pattern. There are at least several other examples, some of which are referred to in the Sandy Rios-John Haskins interview excerpts here, of Mitt Romney’s blatant disregard for the rule of law and the constitution he swore to uphold. Others can be found at’s “The Mitt Romney Deception” collection. I wouldn’t mind elaborating on these other examples further if necessary. But what is covered here and in yesterday afternoon’s post is more than enough for any person with an understanding of the rule of law, the Massachusetts constitution, and the actual facts and circumstances, to conclude that Mitt Romney is objectively unfit to serve as president.

I want to thank Mitt Romney for reminding America today of his solemn obligations. All that remains is for America to know how he failed to keep them.

Update. The latest Newsweek poll just out has Huckabee at 39% and Romney at 17%. This is an enormous turnaround representing a 41 pt swing from the last poll taken at the end of September when Romney was leading Huckabee 25% to 6%.

The placebo conservative media almost without exception (Hugh Hewitt, Bill Bennett, Sean Hannity, Dennis Prager, Michael Medved, and even Rush Limbaugh) have supressed the real Mitt Romney Record of illegally institutionalizing “gay marriage” and establishing abortion as a “healthcare benefit” in his own healthcare plan. by attempting to use his “religion” as a smokescreen. Apparently, the voters are not as ignorant as the conservative elites think they are.
