During an appearance on Hugh Hewitt's nationally syndicated radio program Tuesday, former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said that "circumstances can change," but that he's not running for president for a third time.

"Circumstances can change, but I'm just not going to let my head go there," Romney said, quoting the line, "You're telling me I have a chance?" from the movie "Dumb and Dumber." His chances of running again, he said, are "one of a million."

"Let's say all the guys that were running all came together and said, 'Hey, we've decided we can't do it, you must do it.' That's the one of a million we're thinking about," Romney told Hewitt.

If he is not running, why is he everywhere? I would think a Bob Dole like disappearance would be more likely for someone who doesn't want to run.
Don't get me wrong--I would love to see Mitt trounce Hillary in a fair election where only those with IQs over 50 would be allowed in the ballot administration and counting process.
Go Mitt--represent the 53 percent!

So, if not Mitt who? My bet is that Santorum gets the GOP nomination next (he came very close last time). I don't see Chris Christie getting it because of way too much scandal baggage. I don't see Rand Paul making it through the primary process. Will Newt Gingrich try again? Herman Cain? Sarah Palin, maybe on her own TEA Party ticket? Donald Trump? As I look to the cast of republican leadership and featured CPAC speakers I just don't see who they plan to run next.

Hillary hasn't said that she is running either. Seems all politicians think the electorate is stupid.

But Thanks! DN for my daily Mitt fix.

Just look at the mess this great country is in right now: the economy is still in life support, debt exploded thru the roof, terrorism is much stronger than when Obama took office, we are leading from behind, Russia is rising and does not respect anything that Obama says,and what red line I didn't draw a red line in Syria all thanks to Obama. Mitt should run again this country is in need of his executive experience and business wisdom.
