Mitt Romney: Going On ‘The View’ Is ‘High Risk’

The full length hidden camera videos from the Mitt Romney fundraiser were released by Mother Jones this afternoon. In addition to the comments that have been leading the news cycle today, Romney also talked about the media.

Some of the most popular places for politicians to go and “humanize” themselves are “Saturday Night Live” and ABC talk show “The View.” Romney said he nixed an appearance on “SNL”:

“I did not do that in part because you want to show that you are fun and a good person, but you also want to be presidential,” he told the assembled donors. “Saturday Night Live has the potential of looking slapstick, and not presidential. But ‘The View’ is fine. Although ‘The View’ is high risk because of the five women on it, only one is conservative, and four are sharp-tongued and not conservative,” he added.
