Mitt Romney,  Sarah Palin

Mitt Romney Swipes at Sarah Palin – 2012 Presidential Race Starting?

Whether Sarah Palin even runs for the Presidency in 2012, Mitt Romney again puts himself above party and country and takes a swipe at the Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin.

In the latest instance of a high-profile GOP member taking a passing swipe at the party’s 2008 vice presidential candidate, former Massachusetts governor and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney jokingly dismissed Sarah Palin’s inclusion on Time’s list of influential people in an interview broadcast Sunday.

He asked, was “the issue on the most beautiful people or the most influential people?”

Romney, appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” was replying to a question from moderator John King on whether Time’s inclusion of Palin and talk show host Rush Limbaugh on their list of “The World’s Most Influential People” was good or bad for the Republican Party.

Romney, who has not ruled out another White House bid, said he wanted more influential Republicans on the list before adding pointedly: “I think there are a lot more influential Republicans than that would suggest.”

“But was that the issue on the most beautiful people or the most influential people?” he continued. “I’m not sure. If it’s the most beautiful, I understand. We’re not real cute.”

Mitt, face it. You will NEVER be the GOP Presidential nominee no matter who runs.

The Republican Party needs a new generation of leadership not retread, old and worn-out politicians who have flip-flopped there way through political life.

Sarah Palin may not be a GOP Presidential nominee, but I can guarantee Mitt Romney will not be.
