The former Massachusetts Governor and twice failed Presidential candidate spoke with Fox News' Chris Wallace about how he would've done a better job than Obama or Hillary. It may sound like he's gearing up for another run but he squashes those rumors
September 7, 2014

Failed Presidential candidate and one term Governor, Willard "Mitt" Romney (R. MA), went on Fox News this morning to cry about how he would've been a better President than Obama or Hillary:

"No question about that in my mind. The American people may disagree with me," Romney said in a "Fox News Sunday" interview.

He argued Clinton, President Barack Obama's former secretary of state, lacks the necessary experience run the country.

"Look, you've got to get this economy going. You've got to have people that know what it takes to create jobs," Romney continued. "You've got to have that understanding. You've also got to have people who have actually run something. ... I don't think Hillary Clinton has that experience."

Romney further said Clinton is too linked to the current White House to be able to present a record that's not a complete "disaster."

"I look for instance at her record as secretary of state. Look, her record is Barack Obama's record in foreign policy. And it's a disaster," he said. "Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are two peas in the same pod. And the American people have tasted that and have said, 'Look, it's not a good taste.'"

Yeah, ok Mittens. Whatever you say. Sounds like he's gearing up to run for a third time but I wouldn't hold my breath:

Prodded by Wallace, Romney insisted he has no plans to run but stopped short of a Shermanesque refusal.

"I’m not running, I’m not planning on running," he said.

Romney said that while he also would've made a better president than Barack Obama, "My time has come and gone. I had that opportunity. I ran and didn’t win."

Romney made waves last month when he told a radio interviewer that while he's not interested in running, "circumstances can change."

First he cries about how he would be doing a better job had the American people elected him but then flip flops on the idea of running again. Talk the talk but too scared to walk the walk.
