Why Mitt Romney is perfectly
poised for a comeback in 2016

The Week, by Matt K. Lewis

Posted By:tisHimself, 7/31/2014 1:59:36 PM

Perhaps it says something about us that our most interesting presidential candidates swear they won´t run for president. This is true of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and it´s increasingly true of Mitt Romney. As regular readers of this column know, I´ve never been much of a Romney booster. I´ve also expressed skepticism about the notion he would run again. But let´s not let "a foolish consistency" cloud our judgment. There is reason to believe that a third try wouldn´t be an absurd venture. First, in the intervening years since 2012 — and on a range of issues, not the least of which is

God grief!

Will no one rid us of these meddlesome RINOs?

Can you see it coming from a mile away? Our resident usual suspects are already calling everyone to the right of Romney frauds and such. Just today a story about Perry taking four whole days to go to Iowa was met with outrage and scorn. -sigh-

I said last week all these stories about Romney were an effort to get him to run. I think there are much better candidates and I hope he stays out of it, but I´d vote for him (again) over a dem any day.

I could see myself voting for Romney again, certainly before Crispier Creme or others. I like Rick Perry but fear the MSM (and real RINO´s like McCain) have marginalized Ted Cruz. Romney is a good person but I could not support Paul Ryan after he showed his true colors as a wimp. Mike Pence has promise but our bench is thin.

This guy ran against the weakest Anti=American President who more than doubled our debt, pushed through Obamacare and clearly show himself a racist and still lost. Conservatives are sick of RINOs picking our candidates. No Romney missed his opportunity. We have a solid lineup of Conservatives Walker, Cruz, Palin, Perry to name a few.

I guess the media is trying to get Mittens in the game so he can lose again. They pretty well ruined Governor Chrispy Creme, and ol´ Jeb Bush isn´t flying too well either.

The tea party will not support Mittens, although he is a very nice and decent man. They want someone who will not be a RINO and who stands on principle. One who won´t waiver and isn´t afraid to call out Obama or Hitlery over Benghazi.

If Mittens had done that, he would be sitting in the Oval Office. No more namby-pamby milqtoast RINOS!!

Romney is very competent. Unfortunately, he fought harder against conservatives than he did against Obama. Typical moderate Republican.

Have to wonder what differences and similarities he would have with Obama. Superficially, Romney would be quite different. No trash talking. More like a gentleman so he would get beat up alot.

Policy wise, not so much different from Obama. Healthcare? Immigration? Taxes? The economy? The biggest difference would be in foreign policy, but really how much? Would he stand up to Putin? He would take a harder line against the terrorists.

Hope he doesn´t run again, but won´t be surprised if he does. He won´t get my vote in the primary, but if he wins, he will get my vote in the general. So would any Republican candidate.

Have to wonder how many more democratic presidents and moderate republican presidents this country can take.

Ahh, give the OP a break. He wants to offer a target to aim at, just in case anyone hasn´t flung a Romney or a Jeb dart in the last 24 hours and feels deprived. Everybody deserves a bit of entertainment.

As for me, I´d vote for either, but neither is going to be in the race.

Yesterday I viewed the Ronald Reagan "I paid for this mic" clip on YouTube. I could support a principled candidate who I disagreed with on some issues (not core beliefs) if he had the fire President Reagan displayed that day. IMHO Mr Romney is a principled decent man without the fire to take the office. I encourage all here go to YouTube and view the clip.

Everytime I see a story promoting Romney, or Jeb Bush, or Chris Christie I hear in my head
"this message approved by the msm and the democrat party".
Actually, Gingrich was right and was the fighter we needed..a history teacher who could have schooled Congress in how Laws are made.. Romney is only good at fighting fellow Republicans.

I live in a swing state, so I saw a lot of Romney and Obama commercials in 2012. Romney´s were the lamest I´ve seen in years - nothing about Obama´s record, just "jobs" (like that was all people cared about). Obama´s blamed Romney for everything up to and including a rainy day. Guess which way my state went.

What #8 said. The problem is that "some" believed it was far better see the re-election of the most anti-American-Leftist-diktator in the history of this country than to vote for that "rino" MITT Romney. s/o That used to be called "cutting off your nose to spite your face" but it worked out well for the "usual suspects" didn´t it? There is no way I can deal with the haters calling out Mitt Romney (mittens anyone?) for the next two years anyway. Also, IMHO #11 is correct Mitt Romney is not going to run again, but if he did, he would be far superior to anyone the leftist-demonrats have to offer. But that´s just me.

It would be nice to have an American grown up as president. I have come to the conclusion however that the only candidate who can win is one who captures the imagination of the voters just like in seventh grade. We are really having a long line of bad luck as we are choosing losers because our voters are losers.

So the writer thinks Elizabeth Warren is ´the most interesting´ candidate but no one west of the east coast knows who she is. To those of us who know a little, she is a weak sniveling human being who knows nothing about the real world. Can we please get a candidate who isn´t an academic or an attorney? We need a real leader and Warren is definitely not in that category.

Obama did not win the last election. Mitt Romney LOST it. He is a gifted competent businessman not politician. The party would not even be returning his phone calls if he weren´t very wealthy, wanting to pave the way for a son to enter politics. Agree with others, there is no way he will run again because he knows he would not win.

To the posters who can´t stand the "rino" candidates and want a "fighter", please get together and talk Palin in to running. I would love to see how she would do. I am betting she would lose like Mondale did against Reagan. I base that on the fact that about 80% of the conservatives I know don´t like her. They loved her at first, but tune her out now and consider her a joke.

Sen. Ted Cruz wants to make sure nothing happens during the post-election lame duck. Not government funding, immigration reform or anything else of significant stature. Seizing on a delayed House vote on a bill that would fund the government through Dec. 11, Cruz on Wednesday publicly lobbied House Republicans to rewrite their spending bill so that it expires during the next Congress rather than the lame duck. And in a separate letter addressed to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Cruz and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) pledged to object to swift consideration of “any non-emergency, substantial and controversial legislation, nominations,

The midterm elections are a few months away and politicians should be worried, at least about the small business vote, according to a new poll from Manta, the online community for small businesses. According to the survey of 1,511 small business owners, 81% of respondents who plan to vote in the midterm elections intend to throw their support behind a challenger. While the Republican Party has typically been viewed as the biggest supporter of small business, only 32% think so right now, marking a 22% decline since 2012. The Democrats aren’t immune to the dissatisfaction either. Manta’s survey shows 26% don’t

Why Interest Rates
Need to Stay Low

A sharp debate within the Federal Reserve over when to raise interest rates was publicly aired last week at the annual central bankers’ conference in Jackson Hole, Wyo. On one side is a small yet vocal minority of Fed officials who want to head off inflation by raising rates sooner rather than later. On the other is a majority that thinks a near-term rate hike would stifle growth and, with it, any chance of restoring health to the labor market. That group includes Janet Yellen, the Fed’s chairwoman, and most members of the Fed’s policy committee. Continue reading the main story Related

My blood is still boiling over the recent murder by beheading of an American citizen at the hands of the terrorist group ISIL, or ISIS, or whatever these murderous fools call themselves. Their real name is EVIL. I listened to the president last week as he appropriately conveyed Americans’ revulsion at this savage act and our grief at the Foley family’s loss. As usual, the president’s words were very eloquent. To his credit, the president was unequivocal regarding the evil of this terrorist group, and he took the time to list some of their crimes against humanity. But

It turns out that there are some good reasons why the former Governor and GOP Presidential nominee is allowing his name to be circulated as a potential candidate in 2016. Some of those good reasons can be found in a new poll by Zogby Analytics showing him outpolling his nearest rivals for the nomination by about two to one. The poll of 315 likely Republican primary voters was conducted online on August 13-15 and has a margin of sampling error of +/-5.6 percentage points. Romney places first in the 2016 race for the nomination with 20%, followed by New jersey Governor

Talk to any of Mitt Romney’s closest political advisers, and the answer is the same: He won’t run for president in 2016. “I take Mitt at his absolute word. He’s not running,” says Ron Kaufman, Republican national committeeman for Massachusetts and a senior adviser to Mr. Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign. “He’s been very clear – he loved running, gave it his best, and lost,” Mr. Kaufman told this reporter at the RNC’s summer meeting in Chicago last week. “Now he’s helping the Republicans win the Senate.” Romney’s former finance chair, Spencer Zwick, has also put out

So Why Is Hillary Doing Stupid Things?

“Great nations need organizing principles – and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.” So said former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton in an interview with The Atlantic. So why is she doing stupid things? The Washington Post called her “blunt” criticism of the Obama administration “surprising.” Well, it’s certainly not surprising to anyone who has followed her career. Don’t forget: she made her debut as a Wellesley College senior. She bluntly told off Massachusetts Sen. Edward M. Brooke. Sen.

I was surprised by the statement made by former Florida governor Jeb Bush at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference in 2013. “Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans. Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families, and they bring a younger population. Immigrants create an engine of economic prosperity.” (Aaron Blake, Jeb Bush: U.S. Economy needs immigrants because they’re ‘more fertile,’ Washington Post, June 14, 2013)

There is this notion, one we hear more and more, that the Republican Party has to shed the social issues to seize the future. “Social issues are not the business of government!” says thoroughly modern millennial. It’s a seductive cry, one repeated this past Tuesday in an article about how some young libertarians dubbed the “Liberty Kids” are taking over the moribund Los Angeles GOP. Oh, wouldn’t the political landscape be simple if we could just boil things down to fiscal responsibility? But life is seldom simple.

During the past few days, the extremist group known as the Islamic State has made significant advances. After consolidating its gains since the fall of Mosul and other Sunni areas, the group sought to move toward Baghdad. For now, that advance has been blocked by Shiite militias, what remains of the Iraqi forces and assistance from Iran and the United States. It is evident, however, that the Islamic State has amassed enough manpower and resources to move against the Kurdish region.

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Berlin - President Obama´s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris. Mr. Bush gained explicit congressional consent for his invasions (Snip) Mr. Obama may rightly be frustrated by gridlock in Washington, but his assault on the rule of law is a devastating setback for our constitutional order. His refusal even to ask the Justice Department to provide a formal legal pretext for the war on ISIS is astonishing.

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room
