  •  Are you surprised? (6+ / 0-)

    This is a candidate who routinely gave whatever answer he thought would serve his interests.

    I am sure that this narrative gives some benefit to Romney or the Romney family.

    •  I'm not sure how this benefits the family (4+ / 0-)

      I agree that he somehow believes this will help his image. But seriously -- nine people in his family didn't want him to run, he didn't want to run (bwahahaha), yet he did. He had to because his wife says it's his destiny. He agreed because he is the only man in America who could save the country.

      The. Only. Man.

      This is the thing that is supposed to humanize him? Make Anne look better? Make Mitt seem more like us? And he thinks we are all such dolts that we can't remember his permanent campaign? I think he badly miscalculated -- again. His political instincts have not improved one iota since leaving the campaign trail. Idiot.

      First the thing is impossible, then improbable, then unsatisfactorily achieved, then quietly improved, until one day it is actual and uncontroversial. ... It starts off impossible and it ends up done. - Adam Gopnik

        didn't want him to run.  Not sure I want to believe his word.

        Since I don't run in the same social circles as Mitt, I am not sure that I can determine what benefit he sees to him or his family.  But I am sure that there is something.
