Over the Christmas break of 2010, Mitt Romney and his family took an internal poll on whether he should run for president once more. Twelve family members cast ballots. Ten said no. One of the 10 was Mitt Romney himself.OH WELL THE FAMILY HAS VOTED AND THAT IS LEGALLY BINDING! YOU ARE RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT LIKE IT OR NOT, MITT ROMNEY!
In an interview with [the Washington Post's Dan Balz, author of a forthcoming book on the 2012 election] that's placed at the very end of "Collision 2012," Romney explained that he ultimately decided to run when he saw the other (leaving-something-to-be-desired) candidates in the GOP field.Huh. Welp, you should have saved yourself a lot of time and energy, because you didn't have a good chance of defeating President Obama, either. And, while I am admittedly a silly, bleeding-heart, ninny-brained lady who doesn't know the first thing about big man business like politics, I have long been under the impression that believing people are entitled to food is a requisite perspective for running a nation.
"I didn't think that any one of them had a good chance of defeating the president," he told Balz, "and in some cases I thought that they lacked the experience and perspective necessary to do what was essential to get the country on track."
(Nope. I am never letting that go. NEVER.)
