“You know what, I’m hearing something remarkable over the past week.  Conservatives, stalwart conservatives, starting to say: ‘You know what? ‘I would rather lose to Barack Obama.  I would rather give him four more years than elect Mitt Romney and have him spend money like George Bush and have another Republican who promises to be conservative go liberal.

Conservative leaders.  This week.  It’s like a light switch has come on.  And they say you know what, it’s fine, we would rather lose.”
