Romney’s return to public life stokes
speculation about potential 2016 run

FOX News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:smcchk, 4/5/2014 3:55:13 PM

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has

Comments:
Never has there been such consequences from an election. Everything that Gov. Romney warned about has come true. The voters know Romney, they have seen him vindicated, they won’t believe the MSM lies about him anymore. The time is right.

My prediction is Jeb Bush with Scott Walker as his running mate. Forget ideology (although Walker is a red meat conservative) - together they will deliver Florida, Wisconsin, Ohio and Pennsylvania (maybe Virginia) in addition to the red states not in play. A done deal as they say in the trades.

Too late, Mitt. Maybe if you had really tried, you´d be prez. Plus, it is hard to beleive that one so polished would make a 47% comment that sealed the fate of his campaign.

I can´t imagine Mitt Romney putting himself and his family through that meatgrinder again. It won´t happen, but the Governor´s defeat in 2008 and, especially, in 2012, is our loss.

I didnt mind his 47% comment. It was probably true. What I minded more than anything (besides being an east coast commie state governor) was his merciless hatchet jobs on anyone who got close in the polls during the primaries, then retreating during the general. You cannot convince me he wasn´t behind those smears against good candidates and people.

Any new candidate will be labeled and smeared as the MSM sees fit. Romney has been able to rise above that now. His favorability has risen. The country knows him and trusts him. No, he is not the Messiah conservative that many on this site continually wait for but Romney/Walker or Romney/Martinez would make a fine ticket.

Romney may be setting himself up as the Go To Guy and the Wise Man of the Republican Party .
He must be weighing whether he is willing
to put himself and his family through
the rigors and crushing disappointment of another race.
Or he may be seriously considering a run.
I think he could make a serious go of it .
Jeb Bush ,Chris Christie , with Rand Paul and Scott Walker on the outside are the big Republican contenders at present.
Romney could upend that dynamic if he should decide to run.
The historical reality is that the majority of Republican primary voters are center to center right.
Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz are the favorites of the Tea Party and if they want to run,
they should do so on the Tea Party ticket
with the financial backing of Limbaugh and other right wing billionaire supporters.
Huckabee seems to be the favorite
of the Evangelical wing.
Anyone seriously considering a run must get their organizational and financial ducks in a row very quickly.

I think Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz should run on the Republican ticket. They are too smart to run a 3rd party sideline campaign.

The people who attack them every day can vote for the Democrat (perhaps they always have anyway?).

Mitt Romney is too smart for opting to run again but isn´t averse to using his press appeal to carry the GOP message--the mini bully pulpit?

Besides, the Governor is businessman based and as such is as people moving aware as a political propagandist. His mistake was in making a genuine run for the presidency and counting on God and the good sense of the American people. IMO, God has him serving just where He wants him to be. A GOP voice and a reminder.

It takes a humble man to serve where he is needed as opposed to where he thought he would be. Mitt Romney is an exceptional person. Besides, like Putin and Palin, he likes to win. There is one old truism, if you want or think something should be done, do it yourself? I think his way is prefereabale than that of GWB and GHWB given that the dem ex presidents never exit the stage.

I join a lot of others in not being sure what the "wise men" (a joke) of the GOP are up to. We do know that these returns to the public forum are all carefully choreographed and coordinated. It all started with the Romney family cookbook. Then Mitt going out to represent I am not sure who on the talk shows. Then Jeb making speeches everywhere, leaks to the press about a 2016 run. Last week, media blitz about President W´s paintings and today, another anniversary celebration for George H.W. Bush. Yes, not sure what the establishment is up to but it´s fun watching them think they will fool conservatives once again.

#25 is insightful and nails it, as always. When the Romney sycophants are out in force, you know the R Est. Gang has signaled their orders for the day. Predictably, Willard´s water boys go into instant heat and tell us what couda, shouda been. Why of course. The voters know better and took full measure of this unprincipled fraud; who managed to contradict himself in his first 10 words, reverse himself in his next 10 and agree w/everybody in his last 10. The fight in ´16 is about first principles and has nothing to do w/sanctimonious politicians like Romney, spouting pious lefty platitude and who is yesterday´s very dated news. It´s all about the calcified GOP aka OZ, and the Tea Party. Stay tuned.

"Romney sychophants". Thanks for the insult. You don´t know a good and capable man when you see one.
And to the person who complained Romney was too hard on his Republican opposition. Why did Gingrich continue to run when any fool could add up the numbers and see that because he was not on the ballot in one state and not on the ballot in some counties in another state that there was no point in continuing to run, except to stand in Romney´s way. And why were Gingrich´s supporters too dumb to see that?

Ah, #27, there are different standards. One L-Dotter vehemently protests if anyone refers to "Palin fans". I´m not quite sure why the word "fan" is considered objectionable. However, from that same objector, those of us who dare to say something positive about Governor Mitt Romney can casually and offensively be referred to as "sycophants".

As the King of Siam in the form of Yul Brynner would say, "It´s a puzzlement".

#27 and #28. In the interest of peace and harmony, I´ll retire sycophant. As for, the ´good and capable´ nostrum, a note from history. In the modern era, Disraeli, Von Bismarck, Churchill and MacArthur, to name a few, were neither good nor nice guys but they were great men; precisely what great nations must have when under severe stress. The likes of the Bushes, Romney etc. despite their well meaning intentions, are part of the problem and not the solution, a reality you truly need to come to terms with.

WATERFORD — New federal requirements that foods sold in schools be healthier have some area school districts opting out of the federal lunch program that provides subsidies for serving free or reduced-price meals to low-income students. Opting out means the districts do not have to follow food healthiness requirements. But it also means the districts lose federal money that covers the cost of free and reduced-price meals for poorer students. The Waterford Graded and Waterford High School districts have weighed their options and decided they’d rather forego the money and serve what they want. They’ll continue to cover the costs

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend. In a world where there are no

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again.

Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this.

It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

The Illinois Democrat said, "I think it is shameful that in the Congress of the U.S. we see members of Congress engendering and creating fear of children.

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama. "Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country," Voight read on Saturday in a statement on
