(CNN) Mitt Romney added his voice to the chorus calling for women to be allowed to join Augusta National Golf Club.
When asked if women should be admitted, the Republican presidential frontrunner responded: "Of course."
"I am not a member of Augusta. I don't know if I would qualify. My golf game is not that good," Romney told reporters after an energy-themed event in Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania. "Certainly if I were a member, if I could run Augusta, which isn't likely to happen, of course I'd have women into Augusta."
Earlier Thursday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said President Barack Obama's "personal opinion is women should be admitted."

Romney pander ping.
Who the Hell cares?
Again, another example why there would be no difference in voting for one over the other. What a tool.
They should allow conservative into the GOP as well, you northeastern imbecile. This clown is the frontrunner?
Myth will never play at Augusta.
I regret that Romney holds that position. Private clubs and organizations have the right to self-select. No boys in the Brownie Troops.
I’d be a lot more impressed if he had shrugged his shoulders and said it wasn’t even on his radar.
Instead he’s now on record for agreeing with someone else who should deal with the job at hand and not worry about golf. (obama)
Dear Mitt and Barack —
Is Augusta a private or a public institution??
Does it accept Government funds??
Romney.....what an embarrassment, with much more to come before he gets his a$$ kicked in November.
If Bath-House Barry had a son, he’d sound just like Mitt.
Ugh. SHUT UP MITT
NONE of YOUR business, Mittens. Go back on the campaign trail & keep lying to us to get the nomination.
This is a private club. PRIVATE!!!!
Leave them alone.
Ya know ... does he REALLY think ppl don’t see that he is King of Pander? Wow. Just wow.
The man is a moron and the media plans on surprising America with it.
After all, this is the genius who felt that it was necessary to explain that there were no sharks in the great lakes and that the ocean is salt water.
He's competing with 0bama in a match of "Who's the Better Liberal".
No boys in the Brownie Troops.””
No, but Trump got hornswoggled into letting a TRANSGENDER -man to woman- into the MISS UNIVERSE contest!!
Gloria All Red came out & claimed discrimination——
Is there any kind of litigation that whore won’t delve into??
And so it begins. Romney seeks to out Obama, Obama. Pathetic. No, sickening. Have fun voting for Romney. I didn’t, and I will not.
It’s a private. club, it’s none of your business.
