With every syllable of his speech at this year's CPAC convention, Republican Mitt Romney proves why he was totally unfit to be the next U.S. president. He was speaking to the far right fringes so it's no surprise he'd be spewing red meat at them, but he really outdid himself with this one.

Romney says that if he stays in the race he will only be making it easier for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to win -- and since they both want to retreat from fighting terrorists, he cannot be a part of helping them win the White House so he's dropping out. Sorry Mitt, America isn't buying it anymore. Your party has made us less safe and the Republican Party is no longer seen as the strong party when it comes to national security or the military. So again, I say so long, Mittens. You never stood a chance, don't let the door hit ya' on the way out...

Romney: ''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 Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror."

*Update - Let's take a look at some of Mittens' greatest hits!
