Why Mitt Romney should not be
the 2016 GOP Nominee

American Thinker, by S. John Massoud

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 7/9/2014 6:51:37 PM

Lately there has been a lot of buzz about having Mitt Romney as the GOP nominee in 2016. And there can be little doubt that many things Mitt talked about from 2007 to 2012 have come true (crumbling of Iraq, Putin being our number one geo-political foe, Obamacare not being workable). And while there was no bigger supporter of Mitt Romney than I was (for the record I was a member of a group called Evangelical Christians for Mitt Romney and I also managed several precincts in Shenandoah County Virginia for the Romney campaign during the 2012 primary) the fact

Comments:
The author has some good points but in the end misses the true reason why Romney lost and would not win in 2016.

Its not a "like" issue with Romney. Its a trust issue.
Our government is truly broken and is in need of drastic change. Romney was and is not trusted enough to enact the change that is desperately needed in Washington D.C.; reign in government spending, ending cronyism, and the use of taxpayer money for a politicians personal gain.

This is why Romney lost and would again.

For a Republican to win, he MUST capture the votes from the "Reagan Democrats", who for years have been sold down the river by the Chamber of Commerce (establishment). Mitt Romney oozes CoC.

If the GOP runs with the same pack of characters they did in 2012, Mitt would be easily renominated. I´m not sure what adding Cruz or Rand Paul to the mix would change.

Not only would Romney NOT win in 2016, but he would play dirtier against his Republican opponents than he would against Hillary, or Lizzie Warren. Imagine it: Romney with his binder full of women, ´´attacking´´ his woman opponent..... oh, the howls of indignation!! the squeals of misogyny!!

Please, GOP, let´s not do this again. Sure, a recent poll says more people wish Romney had been elected in 2012, but that does not - NOT, GOP Estab - mean we want to go this route again in 2016.

I too voted for Romney, and in fact I preferred him in 2008. But Romney still speaks about the economy as his top issue. Sure, it´s faltering still looming over our necks, but there are sooooo many more issues sharing the front burner now than there were a mere 2 years ago. Has he even mentioned any of the current geopolitical situations we´ve gotten into lately? Any of the domestic social issues? Anything else, but the economy and insults at Obama? Hey - I love those, but we have to speak to the country about WHAT IS GOOD about America, and about conservatism, and I just don´t believe someone who describes himself as a ´´severe´´ conservative knows how to do that. (And just what did that mean, anyway.... severe....?? Too weird.)

Romney doesn´t have the stomach for the fight which is why he folded up like a cheap lawn chair in 2012. The RINO war on it´s base also weighed heavily in Romney´s loss.

Getting advice from Karl Rove the biggest loser ($400 million of OPM squandered on losing RINO candidates in 2012) and hiring McCain´s advisors was a huge blunder as well.

The biggest problem Romney and the rest of RINO liberals have is that they are out of touch with middle America.

Get ready for Jeb "illegal immigration is an act of love and not a felony" Bush to be the nominee in 2016.

Just because Romney is decent and hardworking does not mean he should be President. His God-given gifts have always centered around business. He does not have a stellar history as an elected politician. I bet his wife wishes he would quit being a round peg trying to fit himself into a square hole. I agree with others and think he isn´t running. He is helping the GOP establishment and strategically greasing the skids ($$$) for a son´s political career.

Agree with #11. Reading the postings here, its not hard to see why Romney lost. Until we settle this little ´war´ we´re in, we can forget winning the presidency anytime soon. The article wants us to find ´find a standard bearer who will unite the GOP and lead us to victory in 2016.´ Like who? Rand Paul? The knives have already come out on him for his comments on immigration. Ted Cruz? Can anyone imagine the GOP establishment $$$ supporting him for President?

The point I´m trying to make here is that sometimes politics is a matter of degrees. Okay, so Mitt wasn´t the perfect Reagan-Conservative we´d all like to vote for. But he was a 100 more competent and agreeable than the dolt thats in there now. Unless we begin to rebuild the Republican brand into the party that supports a strong America, the free market, and a restoration of Constitutional rule, we can forget the Presidency.

The lo-fo/media/leftist axis is well oiled and ready to cheat, lie, and corrupt in ANY way possible to win. So as long as we keep eating our own, hello President Hillary.

If Romney couldn´t beat the worst president in the history of this once-great nation, he doesn´t deserve a second chance.

I voted for Romney. I know he would have done about 1,000,000,000,000 times better job than Øvomit these past couple of years.

But he is the worst looser in history, and he is toast.

Besides, after the least two elections, we know a RINO will never get the base fired up, much less get any undecided votes. Hey, if they are going to vote for a DemonRAT-lite, they might was well vote for the real thing...

At yesterday’s tan suit presser, President Obama said a whole lot of nothing.

It’s should be obvious to every clear-thinking man, woman, and child that, if over a thousand troops, tanks, and paratroopers drop into a foreign nation, it’s being invaded.

It may sound pedestrian to point out, but it’s critical to restate why it’s so important that our nation is called the United States of America, and not simply America. The full name emphasizes that the Founders viewed the nation not as one monolithic entity but as a union of sovereign entities delegating limited powers to a central government.To preserve this balance, the Founders put a number of checks in the U.S. Constitution, most notably creating the Senate, which allows for equal membership from every state, thus preventing states with larger populations from running roughshod over the interests of smaller

Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel has filed his official challenge of the June 24 GOP primary runoff results against incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in state court, he and his lead attorney Mitch Tyner announced Thursday. "Republicans did not elect the nominee on June 24," McDaniel said in a statement, adding that “we are excited for the opportunity for Republicans to reclaim their primary process.” "This challenge is not about the candidates,” McDaniel said. “It is about the integrity of Mississippi´s election process, and we are committed to ensuring that process is accurate and fair for future Republican candidates.”

Late last month, as members of Congress were poised to leave for their summer recess, the House Republicans’ top policy experts found themselves in a barren conference room in the Capitol’s basement, negotiating with the party’s most ardent opponents of immigration overhaul. As senior members of the Judiciary Committee looked on, the opponents — Representatives Raúl R. Labrador of Idaho, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Steve King of Iowa and Mo Brooks of Alabama — reshaped two bills to address the rush of unaccompanied children trying to enter the country illegally. Representative Michele Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota, was there, too, and she

On Thursday, the House GOP imploded over its border bill to solve the child-migrant crisis, pulling the legislation from the floor for lack of votes. And there, standing among the legislative wreckage, stood the proud senator from Texas, Ted Cruz. Not literally, of course. But the tea party Texan is once again smack in the middle of a House Republican debacle. With a reach as wide as his state, the freshman senator has his arm around conservative House Republicans. He has been lobbying them over Chick-fil-A and pizza to change the House bill “to end Obama’s amnesty.” By that he

There has been a lot said in recent years by Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, and other conservatives about crony capitalism – or if you prefer, crony socialism, crony government, corporatism – or just plain cronyism. Whatever you call it, this conversation is increasingly vital as government grows and continues to pervert markets by picking winners and losers as a way to obtain wealth for powerful lawmakers and their fund-raisers and friends. This rampant cronyism is one of the most insidious outgrowths of a government gone wild, and has become a swirling vortex of self sustaining and systemic corruption. Thus, the focus

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,
