Rolling Thunder supports Romney

| November 6, 2012

I know this is bound to anger some of the members and attract some trolls, but the Washington Times reports that the membership of the group Rolling Thunder which sponsors the annual rally in DC, arguably the largest annual rally in the Capital has voted to endorse Mitt Romney’s candidacy for the president. I doubt that at this point it will change much.

According to the release, 90 percent of conference delegates voted in favor of Mr. Romney, a decision that Executive Director Artie Muller attributed in part to their dissatisfaction with current health-care costs and quality of benefits for veterans returning from Afghanistan.

The Rolling Thunder motorcycle ride has become a staple of the Memorial Day weekend in Washington, drawing an estimated 400,000 riders this year during a weekend full of vigils, concerts, speeches and other events.

The group is mostly veterans, but not completely. I’d say that 90% of the delegates was pretty convincing.

    Good intentions, but this is about like some city passing a resolution to demand an end to the war in Iraq/Afghanistan. Feels good and maybe makes the base smile, but wont actually change any votes.

    I think this might of had more impact if they would have came out two weeks ago.

    I think it makes a good excuse to remind people to vote.

    On a related note, we went out for breakfast this morning, after voting. Big Boy provides the Detroit News, for free, for diners. Going to the editorial page, imagine my shock to see that the Detroit News endorsed Romney for President. I’m sure that the unions that have ruined the News and the Free Press were shocked too.

    ditto the Houston Chronicle, not exactly noted as a right wing rag… their most frequent columnists are Paul Krugman, David Brooks, and Thomas Friedman with a little Leonard Pitts on the side.

    I’m predicting the messiah will have an early lead, right up until Republicans and a fair amount of independents get off work.
