National Review Endorsement

Morton Blackwell, conservative columnist and baptist leader
"The only way conservatives are going to beat the Democrats this year is if we unite the major elements of our coalition. Governor Romney is the only candidate who can bring conservative change to Washington now and maintain the conservative coalition so many of us helped Ronald Reagan build. I am proud to support Governor Romney."

Bob Jones III, chancellor of Bob Jones University, GW got flack in 2000 for going to such a radical fundamentalist evangelical campus
"And I just believe that this man has the credentials both personally and ideologically in terms of his view about what American government should be to best represent the rank and file of conservative Americans." He also said, "As a Christian I am completely opposed to the doctrines of Mormonism. But I’m not voting for a preacher. I’m voting for a president. It boils down to who can best represent conservative American beliefs, not religious beliefs."

Edward Morrissey Endorsement (Captain Quarter's Blog)

Fred Barnes Says Nice Stuff
On FOX News' Special Report, the Weekly Standard executive editor said, "The candidate who's done the best among conservatives, I think, is Mitt Romney so far."

Jerry Falwell Says He could Vote for Mormon
BECK: Mitt Romney. Could you vote for a Mormon? FALWELL: Of course. I could vote for any man or woman whose views and values more closely approximate my Christian views and values than the opponent of that person would be. I know Mitt Romney. He`s a friend of mine...We`re going to have two candidates. Third party never works in America. We`re going to have somebody opposing Hillary Clinton, who I believe will be the candidate for the Democrats. And that person, hopefully, will be pro-life, will be pro-family and strong on military defense and anti-terrorism and willing to face frontally, militarily any force that attempts to take away our freedoms. Now, that is not Hillary. And that--there`s some Republicans who don`t have that kind of stance...And so I`ll be voting. I will be asked -- I`m not trying to get a Sunday school teacher in the White House. We`ve got 1,000 of them here at my Thomas Rose Church. Not looking for a Sunday school -- I`m looking for a good moral, intelligent leader who is right on the issues that count.
More Falwell
"We're not trying to find a Sunday school teacher in chief; we're trying to find a commander in chief," Falwell, the founder of the Moral Majority, told the Associated Press. "Where he goes to church will not be a factor; how he lives his life will be."
Falwell, the founder of the Moral Majority, told the Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger the following: "I have no problem voting for a person who is not of my faith as long as he or she stands with me on the moral and social issues. Mitt Romney may be a candidate for president. He's a Mormon. If he's pro-life, pro-family, I don't think he'll have any problem getting the support of evangelical Christians."

Chuck Colson Kind Of
Colson, the leader of Prison Fellowship Ministries, called Gov. Romney “a first-rate guy in every respect” and “a social conservative on most of the issues we care about” in a Weekly Standard interview. He added that while he has “fundamental” theological differences with Mormonism, he “could in very good conscience support Romney.”
Echoing previous comments, the renowned Colson told National Review, "[Gov. Romney is] a very attractive and viable candidate. As an evangelical, I'm not troubled that he's a Mormon. I would have theological concerns about his soul, but not about his competence. I'm looking for someone who shares my values and is capable of governing."

James Dobson Kind Of
Said Mitt Romney is "still on the list" of those he would support or endorse, although he said he would NOT vote for Fred Thompson, John McCain, or Rudy.

Donna Brazile let's the Democrat's true fear slip!! Brazile, the renowned Democrat who managed Al Gore's 2000 presidential campaign, was asked on C-SPAN's Washington Journal which Republican she most feared as the 2008 GOP nominee. Her response? "Mitt Romney." (Nov 11 2006)
