Mitt Romney Bows Out of Appearance on The View; Wife Still to Guest

Was it something they said? Barbara Walters announced today Republican Presidential nominee and former Mass. Gov. Mitt Romney's Thursday appearance on The View was cancelled. The veteran television journalist said Romney's wife Ann would appear as scheduled.  Walters stated:

Gov. Romney was supposed to be on with us this Thursday with Ann Romney. We were looking forward to it. Over the weekend, his people said that he had scheduling problems and would not be coming on with us. Nor at this point did he feel that he could reschedule. We are happy to have Mrs. Romney on with us. We are sorry that we won't have Governor Romney and that's the situation…He can change his mind and we hope he does. It would be our pleasure to have him on the program.

Last month, Romney's campaign spokesperson announced he would appear on the talk show after a secret video recording surfaced of his remarks he made during a fundraising event about the show. Romney stated:

Four are sharp-tongued and not conservative, Whoopi Goldberg in particular. Although the last time I was on the show, she said to me,"You know what? I think I could vote for you."  I said I must have done something really wrong.

    Four are sharped-tongued, and conservative – hmm, I wonder which four he was referring to? Just kidding. He can’t handle four sharp-tongued, non-conservative people? The real world is a lot tougher than that.

    Yes, I’m sure they would be as evil as they could towards him compared to when they kissed the anointed ones ass a couple of weeks back, again, with all of their “puff” liberal bullshit questions & comments. I am sorry his wife is still appearing, for her own sake, she should stay away from those vile women & that trash heap show called The View. GO ROMNEY.

    Acela, you took the words right outta my mouth.

    IMO, the VIEW caters to celeb’s. Therefore, it’s right up Obama’s alley.

    Obama is a celebrity. Media Created.

    Good Luck Ann!

    You Americans are #NotFunnyHaha Sometimes. Last time I checked Barack Obama is the President of the United States, No? Ergo, arguably the most famous man living on the planet ,bar the religious founders, @ this VERY moment. That could easily change in November but as long as he is the POTUS he shouldn’t even be considered a fame whore like some would have it. FGS the man won a Nobel Peace Prize! Now whether or NOT he deserved it is a moot point. The fact remains Obama IS famous no matter what happens in November.

    I’d be more sceptical of a Presidential candidate who can’t handle scrutiny on a talk show with women known more for gossiping pop culture that anything. If Romney has the gall to debate Obama with actual factual discrepancies, on Live TV with a straight face, he should be able to do just fine on the View. The only reason he would decline to such a clear demographic exposure of Female voters is because of His extreme likely-hood to Slip & get his policies jumbled.

    The whole World knows Candidate Romney is The daily winner of word lottery. I for one would rather have TMI on the US President than know his usurper on a “Need To Know” basis. I don’t know, but I could be right. Obama is a Celebrity, American Voters Created.

    This is campaign season, and both candidates need to make their case to the american people. Part of that, is going on the show circuit. MR needs to be able to discuss and explain his policies to those that don’t agree, for no other reason that his explanation may change someone’s opinion and he may win a vote.

    If he can’t speak to those that don’t agree….how can he govern with opposing thoughts?

    @californiaguy888 I agree! If Mittens can’t face 5 broads than how can you handle the country? Also how would you be able to handle leaders and prime minsters in other countries as well too? Hmmmm-

    For everyone bitching about Romney ‘refusing’ to go on the View…..ummm…..then what’s with the photo up above all about??

    Maybe he just would prefer handling Hens on an actual farm.

    The Spew IN MY OPINION isn’t where the presidential candidates NEED TO BE. I’m a working female. I don’t watch this garbage with these cackling, screaming maniacs. But if BO or MR WANT to go on, by all means, go. If I want to read up on the candidates, I’ll go online. I don’t like to be influenced by celebrites- at all.

    Like… AT ALL. I for one am smarter than that.
