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

Some truths CNN reveals only accidentally. One such truth Anderson Cooper shared on the night of July 17. In speaking about the shoot down of Malaysian airliner MH 17 earlier that day, Cooper referred back to “July 17, 1996, when TWA Flight 800 was shot down off the coast of Long Island in New York.” (snip)wo days earlier, Cooper hosted a CNN special report on the subject, “Witnessed: The Crash of TWA Flight 800.” To understand the depth of media-government complicity, it is useful to compare “Witnessed” with two prior videos. One is the ironically titled, “No Survivors: Why TWA 800

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy wasn’t out to make news when he addressed the annual conference of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and devoted most of his 50-minute speech to the Magna Carta, which turns 800 years old in 2015. But Kennedy did let on that he doesn’t belong to the school of Constitution-worshipers who base their legal doctrines on what they glean to be the original, literal meaning of every word and phrase in the nation’s founding document.

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

Days after IRS officials said in a sworn statement that former top agency employee Lois G. Lerner’s computer memory had been wiped clean, the agency put out word to contractors Monday that it needs help to destroy at least another 3,200 hard drives. The Internal Revenue Service solicitation for “media destruction” services reflects an otherwise routine job to protect sensitive taxpayer information, but it was made while the agency’s record destruction practices remain under a sharp congressional spotlight. Congressional investigators of the IRS targeting of conservative groups have been hampered by the unexplained destruction of emails and other records of Ms. Lerner,

WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900. As measured by laws passed, the current Congress is on track to be among the least productive in our republic’s history. How did this happen? One of the main causes has not gotten enough attention: the party primary system. The reasons behind the shocking primary defeat last month of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) reportedly plans to dispatch the Texas National Guard to the U.S. border with Mexico, according to news reports. Perry will announce his plans Monday to mobilize some 1,000 guardsmen to the Rio Grande Valley to increase security at the border, according to the Monitor, a south Texas newspaper. The newspaper quoted a state senator and an internal memo it obtained from a state official’s office. Perry spokesman Felix Browne told The Washington Post he would neither confirm nor deny the report, but said all details will be given at a news conference at 2 p.m. Central time
