Maeve Reston of the Los Angeles times has a piece out on Ann Romney and the launch of the “Ann Romney Center for Neurological Diseases” in Boston, Mass. During the interview, Reston asked Ann Romney about a potential 2016 run for husband Mitt and this is the “unambiguous” answer:
“Done. Done. Done.”
Or is it?
Here’s the widely-quoted excerpt from the Los Angeles Times (emphasis ours):
On another matter that has been the subject of much political babbling lately — a potential third run for president by her husband — Ann Romney was happy to wave off the possibility.
“Done,” she said. “Completely. Not only Mitt and I are done, but the kids are done,” she said, referring to her five sons. “Done. Done. Done.”
Asked whether there were any circumstances under which she would encourage the former Massachusetts governor to attempt another run — or if she would support him if he wanted to run — she said she hadn’t “been pushed to that point mentally,” but that they would make the decision together.
So right after she says, “Done. Done. Done.” the Times leaves the impression in the next paragraph that the door could be opened under the right circumstances?
And twitter’s not so convinced either:
