One more try for Mitt Romney?
Boston Herald, by Kimberly Atkins

Original Article

Posted By:ccprops, 1/27/2014 12:43:47 PM

Their words say “no,” but that’s not enough to stop the presidential speculation surrounding certain Massachusetts politicos. And as the monthslong speculation over the political futures of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Secretary of State John F. Kerry continues unabated, this week a third familiar name is generating buzz: Mitt Romney. Less than a year ago, the prospect of a Romney comeback seemed as likely as Miley Cyrus entering a convent. Suddenly, after the release of a documentary that presented a warmly humanized version of the GOP’s last pick for president and an accompanying media blitz by the former governor, it

I know, I know. However, keep in mind that it took Reagan three tries to succeed.

Someone didn´t really bother watching Mitt on Netflix. What a ridiculous thing to suggest. Won´t happen.

No, it won´t happen. I would never want the Romney family to be put through that meat-grinder again. We should have nominated and then elected him in 2008 and avoided the last five years of watching our country being destroyed.

Romney is not Reagan. He is too meek for national politics. Had a chance against o, but failed miserably. Need new blood against whoever the democrats put up.

You WISH Kimberly Atkins and all of the Left. So you can beat him a third time. Stop shoving him down our throats & focus on Warren & Kerry -- YOUR candidates. We´ll pick our own solid conservative patriot, thank you very much. He may even be a LIbertarian -- whoever the Tea Party spirit rallies around is who I will rally around. Real time limited govt, INS & tax reform, a true exit strategy in the middle east & preserving our constitution.

Mitt and Ann probably don´t want to go through the endless and mindless
cattle shows again, and who could blame them? It truly is a grind.

Still, Mitt is a very polished, graceful, youthful and experienced guy,
and better at it than just about anyone else available.

I´d rather have him than any of them except Ted Cruz...
and in fact, I would put Mitt and Ted together on the same ticket...
in either order.

A guaranteed winner in 2016.

Fine man. My preference for both 2008 and 2012.

2016? Don´t see it as politically possible regardless of his merits or flaws.

I really hope the Republican nominee is Mike Pence; the guy has everything going for him.

The far left would really prefer Elizabeth Warren to be the Democratic Party nominee in 2016; they consider Hillary Clinton a bit too right-wing as well as a trifle shopworn. But they´re afraid Warren won´t be able to stand up in a campaign.

Here´s one thing you can bet on: Whoever the Democratic presidential nominee is, Cory Booker will be the v.p. nominee.

Notwithstanding the real concerns about how conservative Romney is, he does have the strong moral roots and family strengths to withstand what will be an unprecedented and pitiless sustained attack by all elements of the leftard running-dog media that will be focused on any Republican President from now on. How many other contenders could survive the left´s starving dog attack strategy?

His basic decency is a red flag to the entire left, perhaps even more detested than the knowledge that a few minor changes to Obamapolicy could energize the American economy in a way unseen before.

Drill, baby, drill.

The left chopped him up in little pieces and he did nothing to answer them. He hired DC consultants who neutered him and made a decisive man into a tentative candidate who seemed to have no fight in him. He ran twice...that is enough.

Let´s find someone who is not afriad of the left and their media. Someone like Rand Paul who today is taking on both Clintons headon and not afraid to answer the silly "War on Women" meme.

There’s a health insurance website that performs worse than even the notoriously disastrous federal Obamacare site, a top software expert tells the Herald — it’s Massachusetts’ own $69 million Health Connector site, which is bogged down with unnecessarily large files, operates at slower speeds, and has other major flaws that are keeping Bay State users from getting the policies the law requires. “It’s even less optimized than the federal website. It was slow. It was clunky,” said Bill Curtis, chief scientist for CAST Software, a nationally recognized expert who examined the site at the Herald’s request along with his own

Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown has set New Hampshire´s political world ablaze by hinting he may run for office in the Granite State, drawing sharp criticism from Democrats and widespread interest from Republican leaders. Brown´s political future is far from certain, but the former tea party darling, now a Fox News contributor, is well known in New Hampshire and maintains a national fundraising network that forces people across the political spectrum to take him seriously.

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

Ex-CIA boss Morell gives unorthodox

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it
