Mitt Romney, Who Swore He Isn’t Considering 2016 Run, Is Now Considering It

Mitt Romney has repeatedly, adamantly, insistently told curious reporters he isn’t planning to run in 2016. Yep, there is no way, no how it is going to happen, so you might as well go home, safe and secure in the knowledge that Romney’s already had his fill of running for president and he’s gonna leave 2016 to newer, fresher candidates.

Wait, what’s that?

He said what? He’s considering running again?

Yep, he is. Per the WSJ:

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney , the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, told a meeting of donors Friday that he is considering another White House bid in 2016, people present said.
