Sore loser, habitual liar, tax-avoider and job-destroyer Mitt Romney, whose eerily life-like candidacy was such a gift to late-night talk shows, has said that he won't be running in 2016, but that '...circumstances can change...'. Bishop Mittens was responding (full transcript HERE) to radio show host Hugh Hewitt:
HH: Now I’m pressing, and I’m pressing an advantage of long acquaintance, and so forgive me for this, but that’s subject to change, right? People’s candidacies implode, circumstances change. People who organized campaigns approach you. And so I’m not asking you to, I wouldn’t presume to ask you to say yeah, I’m in the race. But circumstances change. And if you thought that in fact it were not that way, that you thought you were the only one who could do this, you’d change your mind, wouldn’t you?Aww...don't be like that, Mitt: by all means, let your head go there.
MR: (laughing) I’m not going there, Hugh. I know you’re going to press, but you know, this is something we gave a lot of thought to when early on I decided we’re not going to be running this time. And again, we said look, I had the chance of running. I didn’t win. Someone else has a better chance than I do. And that’s what we believe, and that’s why I’m not running. And you know, circumstances can change, but I’m just not going to let my head go there.
And the GOP's innumerate 'numbers guy' and Ayn Rand groupie, Paul Ryan, is totally on-board, as he told Hewitt the previous day:
I would welcome it. I’ve told him that, I was with him last Thursday. I think he should run. I think people are getting to know who he really is. I think there’s buyer’s remorse, and I think he’d make an outstanding president. He says emphatically, though, that he won’t do it. You know, I just wish he would. I think he’d be a unifier. But I just, I’ll take Mitt at his word, and he’s pretty clear he’s not going to do it.
"You know, I just wish he would. I think he’d be a unifier." Uh-huh...a 'unifier'. You mean, like he'd 'unify' the 47% with the 53%? Fabulous! Can't wait!!
Oh, please, please, please...let this happen. Romney/Ryan 2016!!!
Obviously, it's not quite as good as Gohmert/Bachmann 2016 AKA The Dream Ticket, but I'll take what I can get.
