article imageRomney planning a run for the presidency?

By Matt Harding     Mar 7, 2010 in Politics
Former Massachusetts Governor, Mitt Romney, suggested that his decision on whether or not to run for president may be decided by the outcome of the November midterm elections
Mitt Romney, who in 2008 was defeated by Sen. John McCain for the GOP presidential nomination, told "Fox News Sunday" that he's not making any calls just yet. That is, he's not making any decisions until the end of the year, after midterm elections, which are due this November.
Romney says, "I don't really have the pros and cons laid out yet. It's something which we won't have to decide until some time after the November elections. My guess is after those elections are over and we see where the country is, and we see the features in our own lives that may affect a decision like that, we'll sit down and make a decision."
Romney has been promoting his new book, "No Apology: The Case for American Greatness," released March 2. The book focuses on foreign policy, the economy, and other fiscal concerns. However, the book deals very little with issues such as gun rights, abortion, and gay marriage. This has been leading to concern as to why.
When Romney was asked why he was steering clear of such topics, he said, "There are not a lot of new arguments that I know of to raise in that regard."
But, when asked whether these topics will take a back seat in a potential 2012 presidential bid, Romney said "the social issues that this country considers and that are very much in debate today are very important to the nature of America and who we are." He will continue to speak out on them.
Romney was governor of Massachusetts from 2003-2007.
