It was reported in the news recently that Mitt Romney met with Jeb Bush, and in the wake of that meeting Romney announced he’s not running. Glenn believes the timing of the announcement is no coincidence, and is exactly the reason he hates the state of politics today.
"I guess I have some good news, but I don't think it is actually good news. Mitt Romney has decided he's not going to run. He's decided that the party needs to led somebody else go in," Glenn said as the story broke.
But is that really the case? Glenn thinks it's much more about Mitt and Jeb agreeing that if they both ran, they would split the vote and someone they consider radical could win, like Ted Cruz.
"Now we know what that meeting with Jeb Bush was all about. That meeting with Jeb Bush was, look, we're going to kill each other. We're going to kill each other. We're going to spend all of our money campaigning against each other and then somebody like Ted Cruz is going to sneak in," Glenn continued.
Unfortunately, Glenn has seen this kind of politics play out first hand.
"This is the way politics are done. I've had a candidate come to me and say, 'would you try to convince this other candidate not to run.' And I just looked at him and I said, 'no. It's not what I do. That's not what I'm interested in. And let the American people decide. ' 'Well, but it will all split everybody's votes and everything else.'"
Glenn went so far as to predict Mitt will be given some kind of leadership position under the Bush regime.
"You run and let the people decide with their votes. And it bothers me a great deal that Jeb Bush clearly went and talked to Mitt Romney," he continued. " If Jeb Bush wins, there will be a position, you know, vice president Mitt Romney, or treasury secretary Mitt Romney or whatever. There will be a position in the Jeb Bush cabinet for Mitt Romney."
