On Wednesday’s Sean Hannity Show, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney told Sean Hannity that he is not running for president in 2016. “I’m not running, Sean, but I’ll be rooting for the nominee,” Romney said. Saying that he had his chance in 2012  and lost, Romney thinks it’s time for someone else to have a shot at beating the Democrats.

He then ticked off a list of potential candidates he hoped would consider running:  Paul Ryan, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Scott Walker, and Marco Rubio.

Romney suggested that he wouldn’t fare well in a face-off with Hillary. “I am not the person who should be the nominee to run against the Democratic nominee, who I think will be Hillary Clinton,” he said. However, Romney lambasted the former secretary of State for her disastrous record, including the “reset” button debacle with the Russians.

Romney also criticized President Obama saying, “He lacks the experience to do what America needs to do,” adding that he’s more focused on golf than on world events.

Hannity, meanwhile, gushed about what a great president Romney would have been, saying the country had “buyer’s remorse” for choosing Obama over the more experienced and more qualified Romney.

It isn't often that I find a politician's public statement to be a source of relief. This is one of the rare exceptions.

Yes, please! Spending his time that way would be like doing community service hours to pay for his crime in running!

This is good news.

But look at that list of RINOs he likes!

And this clown is the best we had to offer? I don't think so!

Thank you Mitt! You seem to be a nice guy - but no need for another half-hearted effort.

I always like Romney. Thought he was a good man. With that said I'm glad he's not running.
