DeMint's un-endorsement: says likes all candidates equally

DeMint just sent out this temporizing, craven email blast distancing himself from any endorsements. (Anybody still want this guy for Veep?)

"Fellow Patriots:

The presidential primary in South Carolina has intensified and my name is being tossed around a lot.

I have complimented several of our candidates when they spoke out on conservative issues, but the media has suggested that I favor one over the others. I'm writing today to make sure you know exactly where I stand.

I do not have a favorite in this race and I will not endorse a candidate.

I've gotten to know each of the candidates over the past year and they are all far superior to Obama. My view reflects what I've heard from Republican voters across South Carolina who remain divided in this race.

For those of you in South Carolina, I encourage you to watch the Fox News debate tonight and vote this Saturday for the candidate you believe will fight the hardest to stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are bankrupting our country. We need a president with the courage to tell Americans that our government must do less, not more.

The 2012 elections could be our last chance to restore America's greatness so we must defeat President Obama and elect more conservative leaders to the House and Senate.

Please continue to pray for our country and the year ahead. Our future depends on it."

We also need

Jim Demint to have a backbone. He should come out in support of the candidate he feels is the one for the job of president. If it's Ron Paul or another. He should come out and take the consequences for his actions. If he truley feels tha Ron Paul's econmic plan is the best. Then he should be standing beside him not in the shadows. The action he is purporting as of now is an action of a coward!
He also is talking the way he is because he wants to sell copies of his new book. :)

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

"Truth, Justice, and the American Way!"

DeMint....

born and raised on a fence. Told what to say. RP2012 You Can't Like Em' All Because They All Suck Jimmy

9/11 was an inside job .....time to get some answers..RP 2012

It's not that bad...

Am I the only one here who thinks this is a subtle endorsement for President Paul?

"...fight the hardest to stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are bankrupting our country."

"We need a president with the courage to tell Americans that our government must do less, not more."

"The 2012 elections could be our last chance to restore America's greatness..."

He is a coward...if he likes Ron Paul then let him say so...

unequivocally and courageously. Not subtle but frank and honest.

If he endorses Romney when

If he endorses Romney when it's a 2 pony show, then I'll be on your side.

Spineless

Wouldn't want to upset either side. Exactly the type of politician we don't need.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson

Unbelievable-If He Is For Ron Paul Then if He Had Any Balls He

would endorse him. His remark that he likes them all is a joke. He is not credible if you ask me. The day will come when he will have someone running against him neck to neck and he will ask Dr Ron Paul for his endorsement. I hope Dr Ron tells him sorry Demitt but I like them all, can't endorse anyone. Headlines: Demitt Lost His Re-election Battle in SC

He received...

the "phone call" from Lindsey Graham.

Gutless

Typical. A statement of no substance which means even less than it sounds.

Just remember that guy voted FOR the re-authorization of the Patriot Act.

Wake up! He just wants to be able to keep "feeding at the trough" and that's exactly what a "moderate" does.

When Duh Mint "endorses" some candidate he'll be sure and say, "after prayerful consideration...." I've decided to endorse (Candidate's name) as he's the best hope for restoring America". Translation- "I realize the only way to keep myself in power and the bribes coming to me is to endorse the clown that looks like he'll win". "If I don't I'll be out of a job and have to....work".

I'm terribly..

..disappointed. While he echoes Dr. Paul's ideas he seemed to back away from making it official. The senator has no spine .

Definitely being low-key about it...

But: "For those of you in South Carolina, I encourage you to watch the Fox News debate tonight and vote this Saturday for the candidate you believe will fight the hardest to stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are bankrupting our country. We need a president with the courage to tell Americans that our government must do less, not more."

Sure sounds like Paul to me, especially if the people are willing to look into candidates' records. He may not be trying to endorse Paul directly, but just like the teasers before the Davis endorsement, there's no other valid option in light of the facts.

DeMint is a fine example

of someone who lacks substance. His unwillingness to step up to the plate and prove he is a true patriot exposes him as just another part of the problem, another weak person in a powerful position, someone who could help get the country back on the right track if he truly stood for what he claims.

I lost a lot of respect

for DeMint when he voted FOR the NDAA.

He is best left alone!

Give us clear vision, that we may know where to stand and what to stand for - because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything.

I lost a lot of respect 4

I lost a lot of respect 4 years ago when he "turn-coated" on Ron about something (I now forget what). At LEAST he did not say he wanted a President who would keep us safe from little brown men with nukes in their underwear. If he endorsed Ron not many would find out about it, anyway. It is just up to us to vote for him.

freakin coward

Yup

Hes scared man!!! Cuz all his friends are like Jim what are you doing? Your saying a lot of good things about RP, your not going to endorse him right? Lol. He fell in line just like everyone else man! Makes me sick. I like everybody equally? Really Jim?

That's what my parents say

That's what my parents say about my sister and me, but I know in my heart they love me more.

MR. DEMINT

There is only one candidate that meets that criteria - so why don't you let everyone know who that is and endorse him?

He's just being a

He's just being a politician... Oh, wait...
