The Mitt Romney 11 AM announcement open thread. [UPDATED]
Personally, I think that Mitt Romney will be formally endorsing Jeb Bush today in his 11 AM
press conference call. But that’s just my guess. And if it turns out that Mitt Romney is running, then I think that this might as well be the campaign’s theme song:
[UPDATE, 10:55 AM Eastern Time]: Yeah, never mind. I actually feel kind of bad now. Sorry, Mitt Romney.
[Further UPDATE, 11:11 AM Eastern] Here is a link to the prepared remarks. Note this passage:
I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well known as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started, may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee. In fact, I expect and hope that to be the case.
That is not a message of support for Jeb Bush. Or Chris Christie.
