GOP Rep: I Think Romney ‘Will Be
The Next President Of The United States’

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Reaganator, 7/8/2014 1:02:33 PM

Despite his continuous denials, some still believe that Mitt Romney will run for president in 2016. Speaking to MSNBC on Monday, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, went one step further saying that the former Massachusetts governor will be occupying the White House after the next presidential election. “I think he actually is going to run for president. He probably doesn’t want me to say that. A hundred times he says he’s not, but Mitt Romney has always accomplished what he has set out to do,”

Comments:
I just don´t see another viable candidate to take on the Clinton machine 2016. I think Chaffetz is right.

Not a chance. You will never get Romney to run again.

Jesus H Christ, are you kidding me?? NO! I could name a dozen good conservatives (including my physical therapist) that would be better than Romney.

Go away RINO´s!

He´s a good man, but he is NOT the answer to fixing the problems we are facing. We need someone willing to cut back the size of government and his governing history shows just the opposite. Great manager, but another of the stream of "government is the answer" politicians that have gotten us in the mess we are in.

I like Bobby Jindal very much.He has done an incredibly good job as Governor of Louisiana for six years and I think he´d do just fine in the Oval Office.Ted Cruz might be a good choice for VP.

#4, I don´t think Romney is perfect, but I think he is the best chance to get us out of this mess Obama has created. There might be better candidates out there, but who are they? And would they have a realistic chance of winning? That´s the key, can they actually win?

I think the Republican candidate should be a former governor. Look what we got with someone with no executive experience. In addition to Romney, there is Perry, Jindal, Scott Walker. All would make fine Presidents.

I have heard Bobby Jindal being interviewed a few times and got the impression of a very smart,quick thinking,results oriented,straight talking guy.He has cut a lot of waste and done wonders for the educational and health care systems in La.Inspires a lot of confidence.I can not say these things about any of the other possible candidates out there.

Sympathetic to #12´s argument, but Obama isn´t bad for America and the civilized world because of lack of experience as a Governor, but because he is a hate-America affirm-A academic communist sympathizer who represents all that is bad about the Democrat´s drift towards leftist totalitarianism and has been coddled and carried through his entire life.

Well, Ronald Regan ran twice before he won in the third try. Who can know? I have become much more libertarian since I voted for him. I have voted straight republican since I was given the privalige and let me tell you - the country is in terrible shape since then.

We need....PATRIOTS, constitution loving, hard working PATRIOTS. Our founding fathers - God Bless Them...came from many back rounds - farmers, doctors, military etc.

They would have you believe that we can´t fix this and I say YES WE CAN! Americans unleashed in all their glory CAN DO ANYTHING!

Proud American - who lives in MA but still believes even without representation or a say in how things are done that WE CAN RISE AGAIN!

I think this loon needs help. Serious, professional help. And needs to be kept away from sharp things, including pencils.
I held my nose, very tightly, and voted for Mittens last time. I will never-never-NEVER again do so. Romney may be a nice guy personally. Doubt if anyone here knows him well enough to opine. But he was a lousy candidate, and, frankly, would have been an awful President as well. He needs to hang around Taxachusetts awhile. Good place for him.
for those who believe that a Pres ought to have some executive experience, I give you some names: William Jefferson Clinton. James Earl Carter, George Walker Bush, Thomas Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. A partial list, to be sure. And every single one, W. included, were awful Presidents. You really want another Carter? Me neither.

#16--Obama is a double whammy. A far left ideologue who has no clue how to govern. I guess we should be glad he has no skills in dealing with a divided Congress. With him, it´s his way or the highway.

I don´t see any indication that America is any smarter now than they were in November of 2012.
Sure, Romney has been proven right time and again, but the lofos are still lofos.
As it stands now, I am happy to keep my cash in my wallet and let the rest of the party duke it out.
I don´t think Mitt is an option.

I would be for Mitt Romney because of his executive experience and ability and his good moral character. But I cannot abide his stance on immigration! No one will get my vote who wants amnesty or anything like it. I have felt this way strongly for many years, long before the current invasion on our southern border, which has been brewing, also, for many years. Can´t real Americans see that our blessed, treasured country is being invaded, infiltrated, weakened, infested -- piece by piece until the majority becomes the minority?

I suppose there is no point in reasoning with yoi No. 8 but Romney is not a liberal. I know past successes count for nothing, but he got MA out of debt and left with a surplus. Since when has military service been a requirement. If it is, let´s not consider anyone without it. That Romney is one of the few people who can get us out of this mess, I have no doubt. There are not so many we can continue to be unreasonable. You should thank your lucky stars if he is willing.

I may be wrong, but I think people will elect him.

Rnd Paul, Paul Ryan, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, may all be electable some day but thei time is not yet. We have a man who is ready now. Have the good sense to get behind him.

Is there anything more ironic or clueless than supporting Romney by asking of all the other candidates, "Can they win?" Did you miss the fact that Mitt didn´t win either in 2008 in the primary or in 2012 in the general election and that he has won exactly one election in his career, finishing his term as governor with a 34% approval rating?

After running for 8 years and failing suggesting Romney run again is lunacy. The same people who told us he was the most electable guy ever now are trying to tell us this again?

The funny thing is, many of us said he would not win and were berated for it. Now that we have been proven right, we are berated as "my way or the high way".

Think about that...

Romney has something going for him that you can´t buy. In less than two years he´s been proven right about almost everything. The Democrats and the media who propped up Obama look like fools at best and liars at worst.

Add to that the fact that they´ve probably taken all their best shots at him. Unless of course there are undiscovered binders full of resumes somewhere.

That reminds me I still want to know what Reid knew about Romney´s tax returns and how he knew it

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
