Jason Chaffetz: Mitt
Romney will run —and win

Politico, by Nick Gass

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/7/2014 9:43:49 PM

At least one House Republican thinks Mitt Romney will make another run for the White House in 2016 — and this time, he says the 2012 runner-up will emerge victorious. “I think he actually is gonna run for president. He probably doesn’t want me to say that,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) told host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball” on Monday. Chaffetz also backed the former Massachusetts governor early in the GOP nomination process for 2012. “A hundred times he says he’s not, but Mitt Romney has always accomplished what he’s set out to do. I think he’s proven right on

Comments:
Oh please say it ain´t so. I thought he had more sense than that! He has been dogged in his Benghazi investigation. Romney got even less votes than McCain! What a horrific idea!

This is a stupid comment and Chaffetz should know better. He´s just feeding the idiotic press meme, Mitt´s running in 2016. He´s not. One thing Romney isn´t is a flirt. If he says he´s not running he´s not running. This speculation serves no purpose.

Don´t be too rough on Mitt. He may have flubbed the last election and he may not be Ted Cruz, but he would be vastly preferable to Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Al Sharpton, Larry Flynt, Pajama Boy, or any other icon of the liberal left.

Mitt Romney is a marvelous guy. He would be a good President. But given the sorry state of the electorate and the massive vote fraud machine, it is doubtful any Republican Presidential candidate can win. Maybe he´s our best hope.

Some people believe things even though they aren´t factual. Guess it makes them feel better for choosing a bad candidate. Here are some actual results comparing 2008 and 2012.
In 2008, white, born-again, evangelical Christians represented 26% of the total vote for president, according to the exit polls.
In 2012, white, born-again, evangelical Christians represented 26% of the total vote for president, according to the exit polls.
In other words, we saw no change at all in the size of the evangelical vote, –no net gain, certainly no surge, no record evangelical turnout, despite expectations of this.
Of the 117 million people who voted on Tuesday, therefore, about 30 million (26%) were evangelicals. Of this, 21% — or about 6.4 million evangelicals — voted for Obama.
By comparison, of the 125 million people who voted in 2008, 32.5 million (26%) were evangelicals. At the time, Obama won 24% of evangelicals, or about 7.8 million people.

The definition of stupid is when you try something, and it fails, so you try it again. The GOP and the Dems have something in common, even if they apply it differently.

I doubt his wife would go for it yet again.... especially with our country being on the edge of mass unrest thanks to the non house-trained mutt in the White House.
To stop the damage and rescue America, the next President will have to be tough, ruthless, convincing, and almost as sociopathic as Barry. But as a second choice I´d take Mitt in a heartbeat.

Mitt is a very nice man. Since he is so tight with the entrenched GOP establishment and pretty cozy with NE Democrats too, he won´t fight decades of Washington corruption. We cannot afford four or eight more years of the status quo. So, it´s good he isn´t running and Chaffetz is a ding-a-ling for shooting off his mouth.

Romney seems to be preparing to run again but he has had his chance and didn´t make it. The GOP will win in 2016 IF the candidate is a respected authentic conservative, adept at communicating why America is exceptional and the USA´s Constitutional principles. ...In other words a merited, ethical, patriotic American, ´Reagan,´ type.

#8 - I am "one of these posters," and I voted for Romney. I think he´s a decent guy, and would´ve made a tepid, relatively useless President. Still better than Obama, though.

My problem at this point, however, isn´t Mitt - it´s the GOP. And I don´t give a damn who they nominate, really. Even if the conservative wing of the Party were to prevail, and lightning then struck in the General and their nominee won, once in office he would be fought even more aggressively by the GOP than the Dems.

But, lightning won´t strike. The Republicans will be EXCEEDINGLY lucky to pull out a win in November. They will simply never, ever win the General again - the scales have tipped.

There are simply too many soldiers in the Free *h** Army to win against - we belong to an ossified Party, which is content to be relegated to opposition status, and it is in its death throes.

If you know you´re gonna die, die like a man. Vote your conscience, because no matter what, we ain´t gonna win!

If there is a Republican President in 2016 they will face such a tidal wave of Progressive hatred and vilification that it will make GWB´s or Sarah´s travails look like a love-in.

Romney surely has more of the right stuff to survive this onslaught than most other potential candidates. Thinking about family, faith and wealth. Besides, what would motivate anyone else to take on the task? His strong Christian sense of duty would be a motivation to shoulder such a thankless burden.

The Democrat Smirk proves they think they have America on the ropes. A Republican President in 2016 will have few historical guidelines for what must be done.

HOUSTON, Texas--While the Obama Administration has largely expressed surprise at the sharp increase in illegal immigrants from Central America this year, the Health and Human Services (HHS) budget for processing unaccompanied foreign minors has exploded in recent years, raising questions about whether the administration could have foreseen, or did foresee, the crisis. After being apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, many illegal immigrants are then put into the custody of HHS where they receive a myriad of taxpayer-subsidized benefits including housing, food, vocational training, education, and even legal

Steve Inskeep of National Public Radio´s Morning Edition aired an extraordinary story about U.S. Customs and Border Patrol on Friday. The story was not about the ongoing wave of illegal aliens from Central America--many of them children--crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Rather, it was about the rules on when deadly force may be used by Border Patrol agents in the course of their duties--with a view to making it harder for them to do so. In the course of an interview with newly-appointed U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, Inskeep does not even try to hide his bias: he

Tonight on “The Kelly File,” Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt discussed President Barack Obama’s reaction to the Flight MH17 crash, compared to former President Ronald Reagan’s response back in 1983 when Korean Airlines Flight 007 was shot down by Soviet Union fighters. The Korean Airlines flight was shot down en route to South Korea by Soviet Union fighter pilots when it drifted into Soviet airspace, killing 60 Americans, including a congressman. Reagan ended his California vacation and flew back to Washington, D.C. In a speech four days later, Reagan said, “This was the Soviet Union against the world

FALFURRIAS, Texas – Far from the crisis along the border with Mexico in the Rio Grande Valley, the checkpoint here exists to deter those who made it this far but want to get away. To an American — let’s say a young white man– the three-lane checkpoint some 70 miles from the border seems far from threatening. A Border Patrol agent asks if you’re a U.S. citizen. Answer correctly, and he lets you through. But for illegal immigrants who want to elude capture, the Falfurrias checkpoint, with drug-sniffing dogs looming, is the likely end of the journey. So the migrants

This is ´La Bestia´ - or ´The Beast´ - which is perhaps the most treacherous train in the world. It is not built to carry passengers, but that doesn´t stop around 1,500 migrants piling on board the freight train´s roof. They are trying to reach the Mexico-U.S. border to start a new life in America. Most are refugees fleeing endemic violence in Central America. But they face a terrifying journey ahead of them. For years Mexico´s notorious drug gangs have been in control of the route, charging $100 (£64) or more for permission to mount the train. Threats, attacks and extortion continue en route

In testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee, Johnson urged lawmakers to adopt the $3.7 billion plan proposed by President Obama, warning that revenues are running low in the Department of Homeland Security because of outlays already used to address the situation. Without the supplemental funding, Johnson told lawmakers, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will run out of money sometime in

After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said. Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday — the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran´s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine. The most significant recent development in these situations was the announcement of new sanctions on Russia shortly before the president spoke. Obama described those

Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. by casually devoting mere moments to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner on Thursday in Wilmington, Delaware, and then launching into jokes and his prepared remarks on the need to expand America´s transportation infrastructure. Twenty-three Americans are feared dead after the jetliner crashed in eastern Ukraine. Obama declared that ´it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy, but not before enthusiastically declaring that ´it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.´ ´Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border.
