Ross Perot Endorses Mitt Romney

By Tim Rogers |

From the big story on Ross Perot earlier this month in USA Today:

He’s still avoiding one thing: an endorsement in this year’s campaign. Though members of his family have donated almost exclusively to Republicans in recent years, Perot is an equal-opportunity critic, unimpressed with both Obama and Romney when it comes to addressing the nation’s red ink.

“We’re on the edge of the cliff, and we have got to start fixing it now. Otherwise, we’re leaving a disaster to our children’s and our grandchildren’s future,” he says in the East Texas twang that spiced up the presidential debates 20 years ago. “Nobody that’s running really talks about it, about what we have to do and why we have to do it. They would prefer not to have it discussed.”

From the op-ed Perot wrote today in the Des Moines Register:

Our country faces a momentous choice. The fact is the United States is on an unsustainable course. At stake is nothing less than our position in the world, our standard of living at home and our constitutional freedoms.

That is why I am endorsing Mitt Romney for president. We can’t afford four more years in which debt mushrooms out of control, our government grows and our military is weakened.
