Mitt Romney predicts Chris Christie,
Jeb Bush in 2016 bids, ignores Ted
Cruz, Rand Paul

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/24/2014 11:08:24 AM

Mitt Romney, Republican Party´s 2012 presidential nominee, on Friday fueled the talk that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will join the 2016 GOP race, along with several others including embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Ruling out another run during a "Today" show interview, Romney also said that likely Democratic presidential challenger Hillary Clinton is beatable “because I think people recognize that the country is just not doing what it needs to do.” In waving off a third bid, Romney said, “This is a time for Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Mike Pence, John Kasich,

Comments:
Heavy sigh. Since "moderates" like Romney and McCain did so well in the last elections why not do it again. s/o I will never, ever vote for a Democrat. However, it is really unfortunate that a conservative is never considered by the establishment Republicans.

Mitt should just shut up, I had to vote for him, but would never support Jeb ( pretty good as a governor here in Fl, not Pres. material, even his Mom said enough Bush WH) the Huckter, are you kidding, Kasich folded. We have some good conservatives, will the establishment let them get to the primaries. Oh Karl Rove, you shut the H up, too.

I have to agree with Romney that Mike Pence would be a superb choice. The question is--does Pence want it?

#2 Pence is busy doing a great job in Indiana and I sincerely doubt he would be one to quit in the middle of his first or second term to run.

The reason I know he´s doing a great job is because my next door neighbor (and good friend) is a diehard, Indiana teacher and she hates him. So besides what I read and hear on the news, I know if V detests him and his policies he must be doing something right.

As poster #1 states, Jeb Bush was a good Florida governor, but thanks to the nutjob lefties and their allies in the media, the name ´BUSH´ is toxic. He hasn´t a prayer. For the time being, I´ll keep an eye on Ted Cruz. Plenty of time for a major decision.

In ignoring Cruz and Paul, he blew off the entire southern half of the country, where the bulk of conservative voters live. That is basically what he did in ´12. He hasn´t changed. He is basically a northeastern liberal.

A Cruz/Paul ticket would drive the media insane. It would be worth buying the popcorn just to see it happen.

It would also have a ticket where both candidates are not only from Texas but from adjacent counties. This would drive political analyst like my fave Michael Barone inside out.

Not surprising. Both parties are beholden to high dollar constituencies at the Presidential level. The President is 1/3 of the government. They will never let a small government Conservative anywhere near the White House. They´re bad for "business as usual" don´t you know.

Romney needs to keep his opinions to himself these days or at least tell the interviewer that he did not do so great in 2012 that his opinion is now worthless.

No. 11 - Perhaps you are thinking about the wrong Paul; i.e., the father instead of the son. Although, the son is already playing both sides of the washboard by endorsing McDonnell in Kentucky. He probably thins endorsing a RINO will give him blessings of the RINOs if he gets in the 2016 run.

Aw, give Mitt a break. He has as much right to speculate on 2016 as any of us. I am not sure his predictions are particularly accurate, however. I don´t believe Jeb Bush intends to run in 2016. Christie probably will and Rand Paul definitely will. Ted Cruz has yet to give up his Canadian citizenship and no one seems to know why. Maybe he´s aiming for the Supreme Court instead of the White House. I don´t believe Perry will run and I certainly hope Gingrich, Santorum, Bachmann, Huckabee, Huntsman, pass up the opportunity. But I don´t know why Governor Romney should be chastised just for musing about it.

Thanks Mitt, but Jeb Bush, who is not "toxic" because of the media, will never get the nomination because we have witnessed the Bush family destroy our manufacturing and sell out our people to transnationals, illegal immigrants, and Wall Street, all the while providing lip service to social conservatives. Ask Clinton-lover Babs what she thinks about us great unwashed.

" Romney said, “This is a time for Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Mike Pence,
John Kasich,
a long list, Marco Rubio.”
In other words- mostly Governors.
People who have run a state , not just their mouths like Ted Cruz and Barack Obama.
Cruz , just like Obama , has never even run
a hot dog stand .
His real world experience is as thin as Obama´s was / is .
Maybe Christie should quit his job , claiming persecution by the Democrats...
The recent polls of Republicans
show Jeb Bush , Christie , Paul and Paul Ryan
as the top four
favored as a potential presidential candidate.
Cruz generally remains in the single digits with Jindal , Walker and Rubio.

I agree with two of the words Mitt said. Mike Pence. I think he yearned to go for it a few cycles back but he is aware of what lies behind the reason that so many or our presidents have been governors. I have in the past will again recommend that you Google "Mike Pence Imprimus" and read his speech to Hillsdale College. He is man for the times we face. Even looks and acts like a president.

Some people, it seems, are just determined to dump on Romney no matter what he says. What was he supposed to do - pull out a prepared list including every possibility and wanna-be?

And the conspiratorial talk is really tiresome. The notion that some all-star conservative aspirants (who are never named) were cut off at the knees or held back in 2008 and 2012 by the sinister forces of the establishment really seems to have taken hold on this board.

Still waiting for a plausible answer to #13´s question.

Mike Pence and Scott Walker are my early favorites.

We really like Ted Cruz here in Texas. We like his type of people. I disagree with Mitt, but he has the right to say it.

By the way #6, what you said was very offensive to many of us. I just wonder why certain people resort to that kind of name calling. We are mostly adults here, but there is always a few who don´t know how to express themselves without the childish words.

Bring on the parade of RINOs, who cares. Nobody cares, that´s who.

Jeb´s time passed in 2008, but of course nobody at that point wanted another Bush. He´d best just find something else to do.

Things are different now, SERIOUSLY different now, and Jeb is still just Jeb.

I´m not picking sides yet, but imo Senators Cruz and Paul have absolutely no business running for or thinking they are in any way qualified to be POTUS at this point in their elective office careers...especially Rand Paul, who never held ANY office of any kind until 2011 and has never run/managed an organization bigger than an eye doctors office. Sen. Cruz is accomplished in the public sector as a brainiac, but he too is significantly lacking in the types of achievements and policy successes foreign and domestic that used to be prerequisites for high office.

#14 Nope. In this part of the country "where you from" means "where did you grow up?". Rand Paul grew UP in Lake Jackson,Texas in Brazoria County. He was born back east but he graduated from Brazosport High School and his formative years spent there.

Cruz´s "where you from"...well, I believe he spent much of his life in the greater Houston area, Harris County.

Brazoria and Harris Counties border one another.

I´m aware Rand Paul is the junior senator from Kentucky.

The GOP needs a new primary/caucus system.

The idea that our candidate wins or loses right out the gate based on small blue states, Iowa and NH, is an idea that needs to go. There also needs to be a rule that democrats/independents cannot cross over and vote in GOP primaries.

We won´t be able to keep the democrats from voting 3 times and voting the dead in November but we may be able to get a more representative candidate to support and get over goal post.

I don´t know why I am still surprised at so many posters who seem to be against free speech, plus their comments like "get lost," "shut up" are tiresome. Sounds like grade school.

One poster gives food for thought, asking which states Cruz or Paul could win. That question could be asked about all of our potential nominees. I can´t see Christie, Cruz, or Paul winning too many right now, but it´s way early.

I am also a fan of Pence. He seems to be doing a good job as governor. However, I am sure he will do something to upset some posters, who will then proclaim that they would rather have Hillary win.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, President Obama’s nominee to lead the country’s health care overhaul, remains entangled in a lawsuit brought by shareholders of MetLife accusing her of misleading investors as a director of one of the country’s biggest insurance companies. The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, says the company used a Social Security death index to stop making payments when beneficiaries died, but the company wasn’t as diligent about using the database to track deaths of its policyholders, which triggers payouts, the lawsuit said. Last year, a judge refused to toss a federal lawsuit against the company, including claims against Ms. Burwell

A Republican congressman has introduced a bill that would stop government paychecks for officials who have been found in contempt of Congress — a move that seems designed in the short term to go after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Mr. Holder has refused to cooperate with the House GOP’s probe into the Fast & Furious gun-walking operation, and the House has voted to find him in contempt. Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court. Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Texas Republican who publicly excoriated Mr. Holder at a hearing last week, introduced the legislation just before Congress went on vacation,

The president and aides will observe the anniversary of the deadly attack behind closed doors at 2:29 p.m., exactly one year after two pressure cookers packed with shrapnel detonated near the finish line of the raise. “The president´s going to have a moment of silence in the Oval Office.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
