Mitt Romney Cancels Appearance On The View, Reports Barbara Walters

On today’s edition of The View host Barbara Walters announced that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney canceled his appearance on the show for this Thursday.

According to Walters, Romney and his wife Ann had scheduled an appearance on the show last month. But now a “scheduling conflict” makes it impossible for the former Massachusetts Governor to join his wife on the couch this week.

As Walter described it:

“There are some people who favor the obamas, because they have have been on the program separately and together. Governor Romney was supposed to be on with us this Thursday with Ann Romney. We were looking forward to it. Over the weekend, his people said that he had scheduling problems and would not be coming on with us. Nor at this point did he feel that he could reschedule. We are happy to have Mrs. Romney on with us. We are sorry that we won’t have Governor Romney and that’s the situation. He can change his mind and we hope he does. It would be our pleasure to have him on the program.”

As you may recall from September, Romney told private donors that The View was a “high-risk” appearance because “of the five women on it, only one is conservative, and four are sharp-tongued and not conservative.”
