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.
