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.

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

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

For many students, the unwelcome return to school is often sweetened with a shopping trip for school supplies and new clothes. Not anymore. As college, high school and grade school students begin returning to classes, the Environmental Protection Agency is urging students to use recycled material, even garbage, for their supplies and to shop at thrift stores for “retro fashions.” And don’t even think about taking more than one napkin or salt packet in the lunch line. “Buy smart!

Our AJC colleague Nicholas Fouriezos passes along the following dispatch: The racial unrest caused by tensions over the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., could be a rallying cry for Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts, according to the voter education committee chair for the Democratic Southern caucus. “There is a story beneath the story in Ferguson,” chairwoman Janet May said at the Southern Caucus meeting during the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta on Friday. May ran through the stats of the 21,000-person Missouri town: 13,000 black citizens, about 7,000 white. Five city council members– one of whom was black.
