Romney Writes Book Geared for 2012

Likely 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney is publishing a book.

The Republican former governor of Massachusetts has signed a deal with St. Martin’s Press to put the book out next March, The New York Times reports.

The work will be titled “No Apology: The Case for American Greatness” and is currently set for 304 pages.

It will read like a campaign platform, including Romney’s take on the economy, military and families, jobs, education, health care, energy and citizenship, The Times reports.

St. Martin’s hasn’t revealed how much Romney will be paid.

Perhaps Romney was trying to match former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, another likely competitor for the Republican presidential nomination.

In March, she signed a deal to write her memoirs with HarperCollins, owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. She also chose not to disclose how much she was being paid.

"This is an incredible opportunity and I am excited to work with HarperCollins to tell my story and Alaska's story," Palin said in a statement.

"There have been so many things written and said through mainstream media that have not been accurate, and it will be nice through an unfiltered forum to get to speak truthfully about who we are and what we stand for and what Alaska is all about," Palin said in an interview published on the Anchorage Daily News Web site.

It has become common place for major politicians to pen books, often to pay off debts. Hillary Clinton received an $8 million book deal in 2000.
