WASHINGTON (CNN) - At Wednesday night’s Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner in Washington, D.C., former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney gave his “Top 10 Reasons for Dropping Out of the Race":
10. There weren't as many Osmonds as I thought.
9. I got tired of corkscrew landings under sniper fire.
8. As a lifelong hunter, I didn't want to miss the start of the varmint season.
7. There wasn’t room for two Christian leaders.
6. I was upset that no one had bothered to search my passport files.
5. I needed an excuse to get fat, grow a beard and win the Nobel prize.
4. I took a bad fall at a campaign rally and broke my hair.
3. I wanted to finally take off that dark suit and tie, and kick back in a light-colored suit and tie.
2. Once my wife Ann realized I couldn't win, my fundraising dried up.
1. There was a miscalculation in our theory: "As Utah goes, so goes the nation.”
Oh Romney, you are the living end!
i actually liked romney!
actually pretty funny, but obviously we should all be able to see that Mr. Mitt did rhe Dem's a favor. he forcasted a preview into some of the Repub's attack points in the fall.
But still, pretty funny.
I wonder if Mitt was ever living in one of those polygamist camps though, he kinda has that Warren Jeffs look about him.
Romney, you could not have won with the support of the Osmonds, The Jackson 5, or The Supremes.
Gee, I hope you are not being considered for McCain's VP slot.
That dinner was hilarious, especially when Mo Rocca started making fun of Dick Cheney.
You're not funny, Mitt. Stick with what your good at, being an empty void to be filled with lies and political tactics
WHO CARES ABOUT HIM
And this is news how come one tell me how is this CNN or the Weekly world news I mean come one now this is just nuts!!!
Go Obama 08 Yes We Can
at least be funny when you're tryin' to be funny. sheesh
The best team in politics?? Surely you guys joust with those HUGH pinheads..
If he was that funny during the campaign he might have lasted a little longer, won, or had a better shot at VP
Not so funny in light of what's happening in Texas right now. Yes, I know the "official" Mormon church doesn't practice pologamy but the stigma is still there from the founders and the "prophet" of this church.
Pologamy is not the only illegal problem the Texas compound faces. Chilld abuse is not only illegal but fundamentally horribly immoral and cruel.
I like a man who can laugh at himself. Way to go Mitt!
Why are we wasting news space with this article? Does anyone really care that Mitt had some writer put down a top ten list for him. This story should be on the back space of the Utah Times.
That's almost as hilarious as the amount of money you wasted on your campaign, Mit.
jokes are for comedians!
Is he seriously trying to be funny...huh? hahaha
Who cares Mr Romney
HILLARY-PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!
Romney found out the hard way that money doesn't buy everthing. At the end of the day he felt her a total loser.
Pretty clever, I must say.
Ha! Not bad, Mitt. Not bad!
His problem was not having the Scientology machine behind him,
the way Clinton does, keeping her in the race.
Thank God somebody's able to make light of this debacle we call an election :)
Thank you ABC. Worst debate ever! What about the issues. They spent 90% of the time on tabloid journalism.
Reason #1: " Wasn't able to get my message across effectively!"
