Mitt Romney has always been a man of restraint. As a Mormon, he is required to abstain from alcohol, nicotine and caffeine. He appears to have never had an affair. And when dying his hair, he's always had the good sense to stop just above his temples.
Now Mitt can add another point to his "restraint" column. He waited nearly 16 hours to begin his 2012 presidential campaign.
By midday Wednesday, the AP was reporting that Romney had restarted his political action committee. Meanwhile, conservative commentator Tucker Carlson writes that Romney "is laying the groundwork for 2012," and some either highly zealous or highly sarcastic fans have launched a Mitt '12 website.
Romney's half-day of restraint shines when you compare him to Sarah Palin, who went "rogue" in the waning days of the campaign. And it certainly trumps the behavior of that guy who spent $42 million in the GOP primary and lied about his father marching with Martin Luther King.
Oh wait. That was Romney.
