Most politicians like to talk about themselves and brag about how good they are at what they do.
Mitt Romney has been pretty blunt with his feelings about the presidential candidates and recently said that he knows for a fact that he would make the best president.
“No question about that in my mind,” the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee told “Fox News Sunday” when he was asked whether he’d make a better president than Clinton.
“The American people may disagree with me,” Romney explained, “But, look, you’ve got to get this economy going. You have to have people who understand what it takes to create jobs and to help people come out of poverty, to help the middle class to have a better and prosperous future. You’ve got to have that understanding.”

Romney went on to say that he doesn’t think Clinton has the skills or experience needed to run a country.
“You’ve also got to have people who’ve actually run something,” he said. “The government of the United States is the largest enterprise in the world. You watched a president who just doesn’t understand how to make an administration work, how to interact with Congress, how to get things done. You have to have those things. I don’t think Hillary Clinton has that experience.”
The strange thing is, Romney isn’t even running for President. He said that although he feels like he is the right man for the job, he is willing to help whoever wins instead of running for office again himself.
“I’ve spoken at this time and time again,” he said. “I’m not running. I’m not planning on running. I’m going to be helping the person who takes the banner for us.”
“There are other good people who I’m sure will be able to lead the country in the future. I wish it were me,” he said. “It was a great experience running for president. I loved that. But my time has…come and gone. I had that opportunity. I ran, I didn’t win. And now, it’s time for someone else to pick up the baton.”
What do you think of Romney’s opinion of Clinton?
