Mitt Romney: ‘If You See Me On Fox News, I’ve Decided To Run For President’
Mediaite ^ | 12/2/10 | Colby Hall

Posted on 12/02/2010 8:46:12 AM PST by Nachum

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is also a presumptive candidate for President in the 2012 election, which was a topic of conversation on The Tonight Show last night. Host Jay Leno opened the light, if not somewhat boring interview with questions about a potential White House bid, to which Romney replied, “If you ever see me sign up for a gig on Fox News, it’ll be a clear indication that I’ve decided to run for president,” adding “that’s not in the cards anytime soon, thanks.”

It was a gentle yet pointed dig at the cable news channel who includes on their roster a long list of news analysts and commentators who are considered to be GOP presidential hopefuls in 2012, including Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, John Bolton, and Rick Santorum. 2008 Presidential hopeful, and potential candidate for 2012 Mike Huckabee even hosts his own weekend program on Fox News, which has raised some questions about the symbiotic relationship between Fox News and the GOP presidential candidates.

“If you see me on Fox News I’ve decided to destroy the Republicans’ chance to win in 2012.”

Hey Mitt, RINO’s needn’t bother. We The People will not support RINOs. Go back and re-visit RomneyCare.

Like he did so well with his 2008 run. He’s nothing more than a pimp for the RATS, just like McLame was.

I’ll bet he said that with a little ‘smirk’ on his face too.

That’s real good thinking there, Mittens -alienate a lot of your potential base right off the bat.
(Of course, ‘the base’ ain’t important to an establishment Democrat-lite such as Romney)

Sounds like he is saying the only way he would be seen on Fox News is if he decides to run for President. I guess Romney would rather be on the Liberal networks.

Mitt Romney is no different than Harry Reid

Mitt Romney is a flip-flopping socialist bum!

Some people just don't get the TEA Parties. RINO Romney is just more of the same. Dump him!

He’s probably comfortable making that snotty comment because he probably approached Fox News and got rejected.

He’s an idiot...can’t believe he ever got my primary vote...but then, what was the alternative?

In normal times this is the way you do it. You spend a couple of years getting your book ghost-written, you have your team write your position papers, you spend some months with focus-groups working out your campaign issues and fine tuning your principles, and then you launch your campaign.

These aren’t normal times. We’re in a fight to save the republic. If you didn’t know that, didn’t notice that, didn’t show up for it, haven’t any battle scars to show for it, never once bothered to take on the Obamists in any significant way, you may be the greatest prodigy ever to be born to the political world but sorry, we don’t need you.

This is my litmus test for anyone running for national office; where were you the last two years? When did you get in Obama’s face? What did you do to stop this runaway train-wreck? If the answer is, nothing, it wasn’t your job, then thats the end of it as far as I’m concerned. Leaders lead; they don’t wait for a coronation. They don’t wait for an invitation. They lead.

Romney is no leader. He is no fighter. He needn’t bother.

I saw him on Leno. What can I say? He is one slick politician. It’s like he mastered every trick in the book. He just can’t hide the Romneycare crap that you know is all over his face every time he talks.

Well, there you have it. As far as I can see, Mitt has been actively running for President, non-stop, but he can hardly get himself into the news. All Sarah has to do is clear her throat, and all the media are on it.

Mitt lost last time, even though he had the entire media shilling for him. He got up around 20%, with the entire media world pumping him up, and then he stuck there and gradually fell back. So the media pimps had to settle for McCain instead. Nobody really wanted McCain, but even fewer people wanted Romney. I fail to see how he is even going to get off the ground this time. Most of the time he is running around under the radar.

P.S. How did he manage to make a headline on this obscure blog? By giving the back of his hand to Sarah Palin. It was her fame that gave him the headline, not his. And not a very helpful headline, either, if I may say so.

Hopefully the senate and house will be sufficiently stacked against Bammy II that he’s neutered for 4 years.
