Romney: Obama didn't cave

Mitt Romney praises President Obama's new plan for Chrysler and GM.

"I think a lot of people expected the President to cave and just write a big check and hope for the better. I'm glad that he's expressing some backbone on this and saying to those guys 'hey, you gotta get your house in order, or you guys are gone'."

John King then asks Romney the one last question anchors throw in before signing off: what about 2012?

Mitt spices things up by invoking a baseball metaphor, even if it's one of the more obvious choices.

"That is a horizon too far away to possibly speculate on right now. I love what.... Yogi Berra said something like this: ‘I don't like forecasting, particularly if the future is involved'."

Still waiting for a pol to ape Roger Clemens at his congressional hearing last year: Andy must have misremembered.

"Misremembered" should find a place somewhere in the 2012 lexicon.
