68% of Republicans Favor Concession Speech by Romney Over Santorum

Voters Prefer Romney to Give Concession Speech

WASHINGTON (TheSkunk.org) — Once the results of the 2012 general election are announced, Republicans overwhelmingly prefer Mitt Romney over Rick Santorum to make the late night concession speech and conciliatory phone call to President Obama, according to a new poll released today.

“All things being equal, he wouldn’t be my first choice,” noted one of the respondents. “I’d prefer a Chris Christie or Jeb Bush to call the President and congratulate him on his landslide victory, but out of the current slate of losing candidates, I’d have to go with Romney.”

Romney has already declared himself the GOP’s “presumptive defeated candidate” and has asked his primary opponents to drop out of the race.

“I’m the most qualified to acknowledge to the nation our wholesale trouncing in the election and the subsequent collapse of the Republican Party,” stated the former Massachusetts Governor. “Santorum is a nice guy, but do you really want him to be the one to call Barack Obama and congratulate him on his win? Do you want him to be the one to stand before a teary eyed gathering of disheartened supporters and pledge his support to the president?”

Rick Santorum dismissed Romney’s comments as “grandstanding.” “I’ve lost more elections than he has,” noted the former Pennsylvania Senator, “and I have more experience conceding defeat.”

“This is not my first rodeo,” responded Romney. “This is my second time running for president, and come November, that will make me a two-time loser for the biggest office in the world, and the clear choice for the Republican nomination.”

Santorum called Romney’s assertion irrelevant. “Jesus has chosen me to lose this election,” he said. “I don’t think you can get a better endorsement than that.”

    Romney can’t be trusted. He might come out and say he called Obama, but given his record, he could end up texting or Facebooking him instead.
