Dan Balz has a book coming out... August titled Collision 2012: Obama vs. Romney and the Future of Elections in America.

From an article in the Washington Post:

During a Christmas holiday trip to Hawaii in 2010, the Romney family held a vote. Should Romney, who lost in the 2008 primary, run for president once again? Ten of 12 family members voted no — including the candidate. Only Tagg and Ann Romney voted yes.

Now, Balz is one of the best political reporters in the business, but -- come on! -- Mitt Romney didn't want to run for president in 2012? Sorry, but I'm not buying it. The former governor of Massachusetts had been running for president for years.

I don't doubt that someone in the Romney campaign told Balz that story. But do I believe it? Not for a minute. And if you do, I have a bridge I'd like you to consider buying...
