Ann Romney: People keep asking Mitt to jump into the presidential race

During a Wednesday interview with Brian Kilmeade on Fox News Radio, Ann Romney said people keep asking Mitt Romney to jump into the 2016 presidential race.

Mrs. Romney: “All I can say is, we are in New York City, Mitt’s been with me a lot today, over the last few days and we have been walking the streets and people are screaming out there windows, I mean people on the street, people stop us on the street, everyone is saying ‘come, get in, jump in’, we hear it, we get a lot of phone calls, people are calling all the time, from our past donors saying ‘it’s time to think about it again’.

"We are assessing, it’s not like we are making a different decision, we are on the sidelines, we made a decision in January not to jump in.

"Like everyone, we are mystified by this race and entertained at the same time but there’s a lot of ups and downs in a primary and we went through this too by the way in our race, a lot of ups and downs. It’s a long way from being over. There is going to be a lot changes and I can guarantee you, in not too much more time, the same thing is going to be happening on the democratic side.

"There is one thing for certain and that is, there is a lot of distrust for Washington right now, a lot of frustration, a lot of anger. It is out there, both on the right and the left, you know we are participating and watching like everyone else is.”

Kilmeade: "Not Ruling it out entirely?"

Mrs. Romney: “It’s not even like we are talking about it Brain, I can say other people are talking to us about it but we, Mitt and I are not even ready to talk about it.”

Mitt also made some interesting comments during Wednesday's “ideas forum” sponsored by The Atlantic:
