Haley Barbour Zings Romney: ‘You Don’t Learn Much From the Second Kick of a Mule’

Former Mississippi governor Haley Barbour has a bit of folksy wisdom to share with Republican voters when it comes to the possibility of Mitt Romney making another run for the White House.

“My grand-daddy used to say you don’t learn much from the second kick of a mule,” Barbour, who now heads up the BGR Group lobbying firm, told “With All Due Respect” hosts Mark Halperin and John Heilemann on Thursday.

Barbour’s remark came at the end of a telling exchange that made clear that he, like many in the party, is less than enthusiastic about the prospect of a third Romney candidacy.
