´Circumstances Can Change´: Romney
Suggests Door Not Closed on 2016 Run

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/27/2014 1:54:55 PM

Mitt Romney has repeatedly stated that he will not run in the 2016 presidential election, but his most recent comments suggest he may be leaving the door slightly open for another run at the White House. During a radio interview yesterday on “The Hugh Hewitt Show,” Romney responded to more questions about his possible candidacy by saying, “I know you’re going to press, but you know, this is something we gave a lot of thought to when early on I decided we’re not going to be running this time.“ “And again, we said look, I had the chance of running. I didn’t

Comments:
The Republican talking head Tyler Harber "thinks that Romney could win the Republican primary and bring a very competitive race against Clinton..." Seriously? Harber´s bio (link below) touts the hundreds of campaigns he has managed and doesn´t site one single example. The only one I could find is the campaign he was part of was for Todd Aikin!! Now that speaks volumes! Where does Fox get these guys?? They had some moron the other day from Moveon.org. I about lost my mind.

All of us purists who didn´t like Romney in 2012 see now what we got. If he chose to run again, I would support him wholeheartedly. I think he has proven that he was right on about so many things that have now come to pass. And how great it would be to have a mature, successful person with a strong family background, after what we are enduring now.

I doubt he´ll run again but I can already see that there are those who would like to "teach the GOP a lesson" for the third time and guarantee a President Clinton. Welcome to the third world!

I heard the interview. He´s not running, he has no intention of running. He and Hewitt were joking about what it would take for Romney to run. There´s nothing that will get Romney to run again.

Here come the anti-Romneyites to declare "We need a true conservative!" Like one is going to be beamed in before the primaries. The very lack of names in these impassioned discussions shows that there is no strong GOP candidate, other than Romney! Rick Perry would never win a national election. Any other names?? Scott Walker, who is wonderful, has a tough reelection going on and needs at least 2 terms in the governor´s office to have a strong resume. Romney could hit the ground running. Everyone knows he is competent; voters were told that he "didn´t care." Well, voters are worried about about competence than caring right now. So, before you disparage Romney, try to think of someone better, who could win.

This constant whining about conservatives being "purists" and that they did not support Romney and caused the defeat in 2012 is like that of a 5 year old having a tantrum that never stops.

I do not know any conservatives that did not vote for Romney in the last election. All the conservatives I know wanted Obama gone. Regardless, the fact is he lost not once but three times and then when he had a seat at the table he walked away from it. First time he did not win the senate race in 1994, second time he didn´t win the republican nomination, and third time he did not win the election for president. Besides that after dumping the foundation of Obamacare on Mass. he decided not to run for a second term as governor. Not a horse I would bet on again.

If Romney is your idea of who should bring the US out of this tailspin good for you but lets stop this endless bickering over a nice guy who had only one term in office 7 years ago. Especially since he has not stated that he will run again. It really just shows how poorly positioned the Republican Party is right now for 2016.

Patriotically speaking, Romney and Obama [and 666 for that matter] are polar opposites.

We are cruising to be in a world of hurt by 2016. The Santa Anna wannabes are thriving under Obama´s watch. We might just need another William Travis in command.

By definition, a new Travis cannot be a Democrat, so who among the Republican contenders is the most likely?

I have no doubt Romney WISHES he could but ain´t no way would a big chunk of conservatives ever support him again. We have been there, done that. If Candy Crowley can get the best of you, I don´t want to think of him in a room with Putin. All pols adore press speculation/attention but in Mitt´s case, it´s also useful for GOP fundraising and he knows it. Lord knows the GOP needs all the help we can get! Thank you for that, Governor Romney, a very sincere thank you.

If Romney is the nominee, I will vote for him, he´s conservative enough and he´s certainly better than ANYTHING the Democrats have on offer. That said, I would prefer a fighter who goes after THE ENEMY instead of just GOP opponents and not someone who´s constantly on the defense over Obamacare. I´d also like to trust that the next guy eradicates that particular plague on the body politic entirely, not someone who tries to ´save´ it or ´mend´ it or who claims he can´t get rid of it overnight, which is something Romney has already done. We need a severe course correction after this eight year nightmare to restore balance. If Mitt´s not up for that, we need to get somebody who is. We need someone who isn´t scared when the rabid left calls him ´extremist.´

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves. Along with his telling amnesty activists that "no force on Earth can stop us," this should figure prominently in Republican campaign ads for the rest of the season... a prospect that must have tightened a few sphincters among congressional Democrats, especially those who have been working overtime to distance themselves from Obama, or even pretend they are actively

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

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.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

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

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

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control.
