Romney tries to re-emerge
as force in GOP politics

Associated Press, by Steve Peoples*

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 6/13/2014 12:46:20 PM

BOSTON — Once fearing he would be viewed as "a loser for life" if he failed to win the presidency, Mitt Romney is trying to re-emerge as a force in Republican politics. Romney has quietly sought kingmaker status in the GOP´s fight for the Senate majority this fall and its quest to retake the White House in 2016. The effort at revival is fueling whispers about a third presidential run. But those closest to Romney suggest he´s more interested in shaping party politics by lending his name and record-breaking fundraising machine to what he considers the next generation of electable conservatives.

Additional voices are always needed, otherwise we become an echo chamber.

I´m glad to see it. There are so many things happening now that wouldn´t be happening with a President Romney. I think the situation in the ME would be much different, as would the situation on the border. Some voters, hopefully enough to make a difference, will take note. Also his fundraising will help Ernst in Iowa. She´s tied in polling. A win there would be huge.

Well, THAT didn´t take long, did it? The name calling worked out so very well the last time, didn´t it? Far, far better to have put obama back for a 2nd term than vote for that "rino". Yes, by all means, let´s not listen to anything Mitt Romney has to say! You know the man who TOLD the country what would happen if obama was re-elected, what Russia was going to do and China, North Korea, and countless predictions that proved to be TRUE. For the country´s sake, why can´t some people give up the hatred and self-defeating angry name-calling? WE need all the help we can get from ANYONE with an intellect AND decency and a genuine love for the United States. That is certainly not true of the current occupant of the W.H.! Good Grief!

Oh Please. Like Willard is all of a sudden the All Knowing, All Seeing expert on all things foreign policy. Cheese and Crackers. Virtually all of the 2012 GOP Presidential Primary candidates that Willard and his Worshipers so Hatingly excoriated, attacked, smeared and slandered were all predicting what a disaster Hussein´s foreign policy was and how much worse it would get. It had already deteriorated to an abysmal point in 2012 and Willard shadow boxed Hussein in the debate on foreign policy, when he easily could have decimated him. Willard chose to fight fellow GOP Primary candidates than he chose to fight Hussein in the general. Willard and his Worshipers are the ones who LOST the Presidential election in 2012 and seek to be relevant again. Willard is NOT the style of leadership that needs to be at the forefront of the party.

Romney was a good man with plenty of smarts that would have turn this country around,especially the economy. Now, because of these conservatives on our side that want it
" my way only" we got a traitorous Muslim who is now stating that the Mexican kids flooding this country are our future. Somehow prayers do not seem enough anymore.

He´s not trying, he is a force now.
Which doesn´t surprise me . Romney dusted himself off and has emerged as a kingmaker.
Calling him a RINO and declaring one´s hatred of Romney
( something I still don´t understand )
doesn´t change the reality.
Romney has a tremendous fundraising network
that he is using to help " good, electable conservatives ."
" He has intensified efforts in recent weeks
to influence the GOP´s midterm election strategy.
And Republican candidates from Idaho to Florida
are fighting for his endorsement."
"Romney so far this year has endorsed 29 candidates
running for statewide office
or Congress across 23 states.."
" Of the 12 Republican who have had
primary elections already, all have won their party´s nomination
to run in the general election."
Romney doesn´t just endorse from talk radio or Facebook.
He physically gets out on the stump with candidates and holds rallies.
He holds fundraisers for candidates -17 so far.
"He´ll do whatever it takes to help us control the Senate
and get the White House back — not for Mitt Romney, but for his 22 grandkids."

On a personal level, I like Mitt Romney -- he´s a good man. On a political level, he is lousy. When he was espousing the minimum wage recently, I was reminded he is all about pandering and straddling. We need unequivocal, unabashed, unashamed conservative leadership who will fight tooth and nail against the evils of liberalism, not someone who will try to coopt the squishy middle who leans the wrong way by tricking them into thinking he´s just like them.

If Romney had fought agains Obama half as much as he did against him primary GOP opponents, then maybe some of those who stayed home might have gone and voted for him in the general election. This BS that conservatives are to blame for Obama´s second term is exactly that -- BS. It was the candidate and no reinventing history (a democrat tactic) will change the facts.

I don´t know any "Willard Worshipers". I know a lot of sensible, good, patriotic people who supported our GOP nominee with time, money and effort and were crushed when he lost. It´s ridiculous for those who dislike Romney to keep refighting that battle. If you never supported Governor Romney, that was your choice. I see no need to keep telling us about it, however. What we are discussing here is Romney´s reemergence as a political influence. I´m not sure what the objection would be. As the earlier poster said, we can certainly benefit from his fundraising skills and, believe it or not, his endorsements are welcomed and helpful. No one is chaining anyone to his press releases, however. Take them or leave them. Just spare us the exclamation points and the all cap words.

I think he is an intelligent, decent, experienced man who has much to add to the discussion. Which is what he is doing.

I agree with the poster up the thread - too many are interested in existing in an echo chamber. Everyone who doesn´t agree with them 100% has to be bad. In some societies that is called groupthink.

Listening to the ideas of others will not somehow poison a strong mind. And they might just learn something. Fancy that!

Romney is using his money to help establishment candidates. He has not helped one conservative. So let´s get it straight which side he works for -- the status quo. He is a kingmaker? I do not even know what to say to that one. Mitt is greasing the skids for one of the sons to run for office. I don´t dislike him just recognize what is going on.

These are the same folks who supported Donald Trump then Rick Santorum then Newt Gingrich then back to Donald Trump then back to Rick Santorum.

I´m sure glad they got their way and have Obama for another four. I thought Lucianne posters were always the most intelligent posters on any website, but have changed my mind since the last election.

I enjoy these threads. Events have certainly borne out Governor Romney´s point of view. It is a pleasure to see his detractors posting with the flying spittle and all the virulence their tiny little intellects can muster.
I do agree with one of them though: stupid people rarely realize they are. Still, they seem to relish putting it on display for the rest of us.

Of course the Republican Establishment and its lackeys love Mr. Romney. And even surer is that they will never understand why he his derided and despised so much.

Romney can raise money from K Street,Wall Street, and the Chamber of Commerce. So? Where has it gotten him? His endorsements are obviously over valued. He couldn´t attract enough voters to get elected after 8 years of running and BILLIONS being spent to get elected. How does this equate being a "kingmaker"? The reality is that these "endorsements" are less about the candidate Romney endorses and more about Romney hoping that his association with candidates might be seen as them endorsing him. Why else would one need to keep score or care to?

The reality is that no matter how much Romney and his loyalists spin him, he is simply a weak breeze outside the beltway at best and always will be.

By the way, even though I was all in for Romney in 2012 and am still open to him, I do reserve the right to use that venerable nickname if not term of endearment, "Mittens". I´ve referred to him by that now & then ever since supporting Giuliani over Romney in 2008. I don´t think his fans need to be overly sensitive about that. After all, what´s wrong with mittens?

Former Border Patrol Deputy Chief: ´All of the

Former national deputy chief of the U.S. Border Patrol Ronald Colburn tells National Review Online that the Obama administration has undone all of the progress made at America’s southern border since 9/11. “We’re back to a pre-9/11 situation basically, and this administration did that in the past five years,” he says. “All of the good that was done after 9/11 up to now has been reversed singlehandedly.” Colburn, who spent more than 30 years working for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, says the resulting national-security risk has to do with the “clutter” of people at the border.

JACKSON, Miss. —Representatives for Chris McDaniel´s U.S. Senate campaign said Wednesday that they continue to examine election materials, but have not yet filed an official election challenge. McDaniel lost to six-term U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran by more than 7,600 votes in the June 24 Republican runoff election. McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said enough evidence has already been found to challenge the election. He said an official challenge will be filed within the next 10 days. McDaniel did not attend Wednesday´s news conference in Jackson. "This is not a challenge right now. This is a process by which is afforded to the candidate by

WASHINGTON — Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has secretly notified Congress that the military intends to transfer six low-level Guantánamo Bay detainees to Uruguay as early as next month, according to people with knowledge of the communication. All six have been approved for transfer for more than four years. Mr. Hagel’s formal determination that the transfer would be in the national security interest of the United States breaks a bureaucratic paralysis over a deal that has been waiting for his approval since March, but stalled amid the political uproar over a prisoner exchange deal that secured the release of Sgt.

TEGUCIGALPA - Top Honduran officials on Wednesday called for U.S. aid to Central America to reduce violence that has fueled a surge of child migration to the United States, with the foreign minister calling for a "mini-Marshall plan" to attack the broader underlying problems. Honduran President Juan Hernandez said Washington should help Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras fight gangs with a plan similar to U.S. anti-drug programs in Colombia and Mexico, as well as funds to lift growth in the impoverished region.

And the former hostage wants President Obama to know that he is grateful the U.S. government traded five Taliban commanders in exchange for his release in May. “Sergeant Bergdahl is deeply grateful to President Obama for saving his life,” Bergdahl’s

If the Palestinians are merely engaged in a nationalist struggle for self-determination, then why are they inciting genocide of Jewry? In the midst of Operation Protective Edge, Hamas released a music video in Hebrew calling for the Palestinians to bomb Israel and kill all Israelis. “Raze it [Israel] to the ground, exterminate the cockroaches’ nest, and banish all the Zionists,” the lyrics read. Some human rights activists and lawyers may get a sense of déjà vu upon reading these words. Back in 1994, there were several radio broadcasts calling for the extermination of human cockroaches. They were in Rwanda. When the Hutus began their

TOPEKA, Kan. — Democratic challenger Paul Davis sought Tuesday to give his campaign for Kansas governor a bipartisan boost by announcing endorsements from more than 100 moderate Republicans who´ve split with conservative GOP Gov. Sam Brownback over education and tax policy. The disaffected Republicans include outgoing Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger, three former Kansas Senate presidents and three former Kansas House speakers. More than half are former legislators, and the list includes former U.S. Rep. Jan Meyers, who represented the Kansas City-area 3rd District from 1985 to 1997. They announced that they formed Republicans for Kansas Values because of their concerns about the

The headline from AP certainly is alarming: “100 Kansas GOP endorse Democrat for governor.” And the lead paragraph continues the theme: Democratic challenger Paul Davis sought Tuesday to give his campaign for Kansas governor a bipartisan boost by announcing endorsements from more than 100 moderate Republicans who´ve split with conservative GOP Gov. Sam Brownback over education and tax policy. You might be wondering, to borrow Thomas Frank’s infamous book title, “What’s the matter with Kansas”? I can’t claim to be an expert on the Jayhawker State, but it does appear that this is a matter of sour grapes: Six state senators on

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
