Mitt Romney for president in 2016?
CBS News, by Jake Miller

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 6/14/2014 5:27:34 PM

Far from being excommunicated by Republicans after his loss to President Obama, 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is enjoying a brand resurgence of late, drawing several potential 2016 candidates to his "ideas summit" this weekend in Utah and even earning some 2016 speculation himself. Meanwhile, some other potential candidates are in Iowa for the state Republican Party´s convention there Saturday. And not to be left out, Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., was in California Friday to raise money for the Republican gubernatorial candidate there and participate in a Facebook chat. It all adds up to a busy weekend for the early 2016

Comments:
I post this to give a bit of balance to the diatribe against Romney a couple of posts down. No, he´s not running, but wouldn´t I love it if he had been President for the last 8 years. The world would be a better place.

Romney would be OK. The economy would improve, he´s a patriotic American, and he knows how to make decisions, unlike our current waffle cone.

Yes! He is the only GOP candidate who can´t be defined by the media anymore. And he seemed to be trying to be "above politics" in his last campaign. I assume he is smart enough to learn from his mistakes.

Who´s zoomin´ who? Putting up another weak-kneed moderate like the already defeated and unrepentant Romney would be an admission of guilt from the already whipped Republican Establishment. I´d rather re-establish my forty year old contacts with the CPUSA than throw in with the Boehner GOP. these are cosmic idiots.

For RINO lovers everywhere, please know that Mittens legacy as governor include:

1. RomneyCare, the model for ObamaCare. Neither Romney nor Obama can admit to the abject failure of either approach to socialized healthcare.

2. She man Gina McCarthy, Obama´s lawless EPA head, began her public career under Romney. Mitt hates coal, and like Obama, Romney would rather have us curse the darkness than have inexpensive electricity from coal fired power plants.

So, please Mitt, GO AWAY. Your decency doesn´t offset your progressive beliefs.

The GOP could nominate worse and almost certainly will. The Democrats will do worse for sure.

But I expect events and collapses that will make voting choices meaningless by November 2016.

True-Conservatives need to find their go-to guy. They didn´t seem to have anyone that could stand up to reasonable scrutiny for more than a month or two in 2012. Maybe Cruz will work out. He is certainly smart enough but the press seems to have him squarely in their cross hairs.

I think that Cruz could beat a Deval Patrick. America is fed up with Affirmative Action Presidents. Sadly if HRC gets the nomination, she will be deemed as "the safe choice" when compared to a press-demonized Cruz. Thus the general election will bring on eight more years of really bad luck.

This is an important piece...for conservatives, especially those like myself who voted for Romney in ´12, still naively believing that elections were fair.

All the right sources are referenced (WaPo, AP, LAT) except Mother Jones.

All the right conservatives are quoted:
- Joe Scarborough: "Rommey is the only person that can fill the stage."
- Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a Democrat: "He would be a giant in a field of midgets."
- [David Corn was unavailable for comment.]

Important conservatives were mentioned: Christie, Zuckerberg, etc.

But there was something perplexing in the OP´s comments: "...wouldn´t I love it if he [Romney] had been President for the last 8 years." Eight years?

No, Romney campained for 8 years. And in 8 years Romney failed to give enough voters a reason to show up and vote for him. It is laughable that people still believe its your job to show up and vote, not the politicians job to earn the honor of you delivering it to support them.

The fact is most conservatives do not trust Romney nor the Republican Establishment he represents. No matter how much whining and snit fits they throw, that is the reality.

So suck it up buttercups! This is YOUR problem, not ours.

When you look at the trends out there (the bluing of Virginia and Florida, pot in Colorado), and then take a hard look at the EV map, it is difficult to imagine how any Republican - RINO or conservative - might win in 2016. All the bickering and speculation over potential nominees may be a waste of time.

One thing Romney has, and every other Republican candidate/President will need is an absolute rock solid faith and self sufficiency to survive the coming brutality.

And believe me, the next candidate will need that in spades because we have never seen a tsunami of hate and lies as will descend upon that luckless person courtesy of an enraged media and their progressive allies during the next election cycle.

They only made a snuff film about GWB, but the political landscape has moved a lot farther left since then.

If Romney was unable to defeat the ruined ashes of Our Historic First Black President, how could he possibly beat The Smartest Woman In The World - Our Historic First Female President and Saviour?

As long as the loathsome MSM is allowed and able to intimidate the electorate, in close and illegal collaboration with the DNC, into only voting for politically correct candidates ( = Leftists), it really matters not many smidgens if the Mean-Greedy-Racist candidate is named Romney or Cruz or Paul or Palin.

Call in Atticus Finch. Only the scrupulously fair lawyer at the center of Harper Lee´s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird," could get at the truth in the latest conflict over the reclusive author´s privacy. The clash erupted again with Tuesday´s release of "The Mockingbird Next Door: Life with Harper Lee," by former Chicago Tribune reporter Marja Mills. To gather material for her intimate portrait, Mills rented a house in Monroeville, Ala., next door to the 88-year-old author and her older sister, Alice, and gradually got to know them. In the book, Mills claims she had "the trust, support, and encouragement"

The tens of thousands of Central Americans who have crossed America’s porous borders over the last year came on the assumption that once on U.S. soil they would never have to return to their countries. The instigators of this influx correctly viewed Obama’s de facto support for amnesty as a flashing green light. After all, how seriously were they going to take U.S. immigration law under a president who treated border security as a punch line to a joke? In 2011, Obama loudly mocked conservatives, the very ones who foresaw today’s mushrooming crisis, as malcontents crying wolf about a vulnerable border. “You

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s stunning primary loss has left a bit of a mess in Virginia’s seventh congressional district, with Democrats weighing whether to invest in the race and allies of GOP nominee David Brat alleging that Mr. Cantor’s backers are pulling money away from his campaign. Democrats, who had all but conceded the general election before nominating college professor Jack Trammell at the last minute, now must decide whether to spend money in a district that leans heavily Republican. But Mr. Brat, in securing one of the biggest political upsets in recent memory, must now find a way to

Jackson, Miss. State Sen. Chris McDaniel has scheduled a Wednesday news conference to describe what his campaign says is evidence of voting irregularities surrounding the June 24 GOP runoff and to discuss his next steps. McDaniel led voting in the June 3 primary but lost in a June 24 runoff with U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran for the Republican nomination. The matter could end up in court. Mississippi College Law professor Matt Steffey says that wouldn´t be the easy way out for McDaniel. "The law makes it difficult to challenge an election," said Steffey, "because in our society that´s the thing that´s supposed to

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Former South Carolina state treasurer Thomas Ravenel has presented signatures to get on the ballot as an independent running for Lindsey Graham´s U.S. Senate seat. Ravenel said he gave 17,000 signatures when he arrived Monday at the state Election Commission in Columbia. Election officials will have to verify the signatures. That process is expected to take about a month. Ravenel became state treasurer as a Republican in 2007. He had to resign months after his election when he was charged with buying cocaine for himself and his friends. Ravenel says he is running to reduce the size of government,

There’s a very simple solution to this Obamanation that’s occurring on the southern border. Enforce the law. By which I mean, deport them. Deport them all, not just the latest huddled masses yearning to live for free, forever, in Section 8 housing on EBT cards. No, we must deport all of the 12 or 20 or 30 million illegal aliens who are turning this country into a Third World flophouse. Can we do it? Yes, we can. A few years back, Marsha Coakley famously said, “Technically, it’s not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts.” The ways things are going, it won’t be long before

Summertime, and the living is easy: backyard barbecues, beach books, plastic surgery. It’s the worst-kept secret in Washington. Plenty of those glowing faces returning from vacation are the result of a doctor, not a few days off. Summer, especially in an election year, is prime time for nips, tucks and other cosmetic fine tuning. Not that anyone here admits it — in the magical world of politics, public officials and talking heads are genetically blessed with hair that never turns gray, baby-smooth foreheads and barely any wrinkles. And by plastic surgery (or Botox, laser treatments, body sculpting, dermal fillers, pick your poison), we’re

Inspectors surveying Philadelphia´s Veterans Affairs benefits center in June found two stunning signs of disarray: mail bins brimming with claims dating to 2011 and other benefits that had been paid twice. More alarming, the team from the VA Office of Inspector General found evidence that staff tasked with managing pensions for the eastern United States were manipulating dates to make old claims appear new, according to a report obtained by The Inquirer. The findings are the first clear evidence that the city´s VA system is not immune from controversies that have plagued other centers and sparked a growing scandal over delayed care

Not anymore. Recently, and incredibly, Grimes officially aligned herself with the most exotic Democratic Party segments by campaigning with the doyenne of the leftist hierarchy, former Harvard professor, and now U.S. senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren. Kentucky´s small-business owners believe in promoting America´s economic advantages such as our natural energy resources.

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.

“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.
