WASHINGTON — President Obama may be the only Democrat in town not ready to wax endlessly about the idea of Mitt Romney running for the Republican presidential nomination again.
Obama beat Romney in 2012 and the two had lunch at the White House shortly thereafter. Last week, White House press secretary Josh Earnest said he was not aware of any further contact between the two men since then. At a joint press conference with British Prime Minister David Cameron Friday, Obama didn't seem interested in discussing the prospect of Romney going before the voters again in a presidential race.
"I have no comment," Obama said when asked about the news Romney is considering a third run for the White House.
Other Democrats in D.C. are happy to comment on the potential of a Romney bid.
