Poll: Romney the frontrunner in 2016?
CNN, by Paul Steinhauser

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 6/19/2014 7:11:24 PM

He´s said over and over that he won´t run for the White House a third time, but a new poll indicates that if Mitt Romney changed his mind and made another bid for president, he´d be the frontrunner among Republicans in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire. According to the Suffolk University/Boston Herald survey, which was released Thursday, 24% of Granite State Republicans and independents who lean towards the GOP say that Romney would be their first choice for their party´s presidential nomination. Among the potential 2016 GOP contenders, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was a distant second, at 9%,

Comments:
Romney’s success in creating an image of being an elder GOP party statesman out of decades of image building, yet only a single election victory and term in office (a 34% approval rating on exit, failure) is proof of the power of the media and the GOPe political machine.

The disconnect between how insignificant and victory free his political career has actually been, versus his national image as a top tier career politician, are astounding. -- Inarguable Facts and Commentary posted elsewhere.

This tells me that the GOP voters in the Granite State are basically lazy and can´t take the time to research other candidates.
They put a two time loser in first place for 2016? Sorry, but they are very slow learners.

Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.
He couldn´t even beat the worst president in US history; a known communist and Moslem.
How would he do against someone who is unknown and might not be either one?
Maybe the Republicans should look at someone conservatives might like.

I hope Romney´s sense of patriotism and love of country will change his mind about 2016 .
Romney is a decent and honorable man .
And a smart man.
He expected the hatred and lies from the left,
I´m sure he didn´t anticipate the same from the far right like Limbaugh and Levin.
He´s a better man than all of them.

I may run for the presidency
as a republican because then I
can blame my failure on everyone
but myself. I can blame conservatives
and I can blame talk radio. I can blame
the internet and I can blame the media.
I can succeed without actually succeeding
because I am a good, decent and smart man
who is well-liked by all the right people
and all the right consultants. If I
run the right way I can make friends with
the NY Times, CNN, MSNBC and the chattering
class who will then fluff me and plump me
for the rest of my life as the finest
candidate. Failure, on my terms, can be
far more beneficial to my reputation than
success.

If Romney were president right now, things would be a thousand times better than they are right now.

They would still be terrible, but that is just how awesomely terrible things are under Øvomit.

Let´s face it, the Republicans are going to find some way to run another RINO in 2016. Most of us will vote for him, but we won´t be excited about it, and he won´t win against the Hildebeast.

This nation died on November 6, 2012. We are just waiting for the rotten corpse to collapse on itself. President Hildebeast should assure that that will happen very quickly.

RNC Chair Priebus Under Fire

Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus has been asked to open an investigation into the Mississippi Senate GOP runoff election — by a member of the RNC. In an interview with The American Spectator, Missouri State Republican Chairman Ed Martin says he believes what happened in Mississippi is symbolic of a “battle for the future of the party.” Martin says that RNC colleagues he has spoken to “are looking for Reince Priebus to show leadership” on the issue. “Leadership” defined as opening an investigation into what Martin and others see as race-baiting tactics used to win the primary runoff for six-term GOP

What transpired in the Mississippi Senate run-off is a red line for many conservatives across the country, because the Republican Party establishment essentially took a civil war and escalated it to a war for independence. It’s one thing to oppose your base in a primary. It’s entirely another to despicably play the race card against your base, and bolster the legitimacy of the propaganda of our race-baiting opponents on the Left. But that’s exactly what the Kamikaze pilots running the GOP did. As a result, Chris McDaniel won Republican voters handily on Tuesday, but still lost the run-off statewide thanks to

Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel is projecting confidence about his campaign´s review of ballots cast in a runoff election he narrowly lost to incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran Tuesday ahead of a planned legal challenge to the election results. The campaign is focusing on any ballots cast by individuals who voted in the Democratic primary on June 3, who under Mississippi´s election rules, were not allowed to vote in the Republican primary runoff three weeks later. McDaniel claimed in an interview on Fox News late Thursday that his campaign had identified over 1,000 such votes in Hinds County, which includes a large African

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that it’s not the tactics themselves that bother them as much as the attention those tactics are receiving from conservative voters. Says Red State’s Leon Wolf, “If any of these bastards want to avoid the fallout they should go on the record.” According to these conversations [with two Republican Senate staffers], some $800,000 was raised for Cochran by his Senate colleagues after the McDaniel victory in the primary’s first round, largely under the rubric of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. This wasn’t seen as a particularly controversial matter at the time; the

BROOKS COUNTY – “I’ve had a 7-year-old little girl from El Salvador with her mother come to my front door just in dire need, lost, needing help,” says Linda Vickers, who owns a Ranch in Brooks County. “They wanted to get a ride to Houston; they didn’t want me to call border control. This ranchland is ruthless. It’s deep sand; it’s hot; it’s humid; it literally sucks the life out of a person.” Vickers says even though her ranch is about 60 miles north of the border, bands of illegal immigrants are still crossing onto her land by circumventing border patrol check

Nobody But Hillary?

Despite Hillary Clinton’s disappointing book sales, and a gaffe-prone publicity tour, she remains the prohibitive favorite for the Democratic nomination. If anything, the last few weeks have only confirmed her advantage. Despite these disappointments and mis-steps, there is no substantial anti-Clinton movement building in the party. All we hear are crickets.This is very peculiar, when we think about the role that the Clintons have long occupied in the Democratic party. They have long had a troubled relationship with the left wing. Bill Clinton left it on the outside looking in after the Republican wave election of 1994. He dealt with

The White House on Tuesday formally requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding from Congress to deal with an influx of Central American minors along the southern border. But the proposal was quickly met with broad skepticism among Republican lawmakers, who were doubtful that the package would be approved quickly — if at all. Administration officials said the request is part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up border patrols and air surveillance. President Obama has said he hopes such steps will both speed deportations and discourage adults from sending children on

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections. The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act. The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said. “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s

Fate hasn´t been kind to Hillary Clinton, at least not in its most recent phase. In 2008, when the plate was set for the national Democrats, she lost the nomination to Barack Obama, of scant years and no gravitas, who soared out of nowhere to wrench destiny from her on the unspecified promise of "change." Now, "change" has come, and people don´t like it. Iraq changed from a safe, stable ally (just ask Obama) to a terrorist haven, one of the reasons why, though no fellow Democrats seem likely to edge her, her chances of winning the White House seem dim.

Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to "stem the tide" of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States. "We have six minors in Nogales

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.
