Mitt Romney preps for 2012 with Virginia tour
Politico

In another sign that he’s eying a second run for the presidency, Mitt Romney is planning a series of stops in Virginia next week to help Republican candidates running in the commonwealth’s off-year election. Read more.

I’m sorry, but no thanks. For a while after the GOP field narrowed in 2008, I could have supported Mitt Romney over John McCain. Heck I could have supported Mike Huckabee, Rudy Giuliani, Fred Thompson and George Allen over John McCain before the field narrowed. But that’s another story.
