In a Sunday appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, former 2012 Republican presidential candidate and flip flopper, Mitt Romney, told the host of the program that he is “glad” he is not a Republican candidate for the 2016 presidential race.
“I can’t imagine running right now. And I’m glad I’m not in the race. A lot of people are battling their way ahead. I think the American people wanted to see a new face. That’s a good thing. And I can’t imagine how I would be doing on that particular stage, but I salute them for their willingness to get in and fight for the things they believe in.”
I haven’t heard from Mitt Romney in ages. I think this resurrection on CNN is just his way of telling the Republicans that compared to what they have now, he really wasn’t that bad. And maybe, just maybe he’s hoping that they somehow draft him to represent them in 2016!
Wishful thinking on my part for the king of flip-flops to run again!
Romney mentioned that there were a number of GOP hopefuls in the race who have “positive attributes” including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.
When asked for his thoughts on retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Romney called him a “very gentle and sweet soul who speaks his mind.”0
