It´s coming: Romney for president redux
American Thinker, by Rick Moran

Original Article

Posted By:zephyrgirl, 8/28/2014 12:43:24 PM

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

Amen.

Oh man, not again!

But look at the other candidates the people polled had to choose from. Christie? Yuck! Huckabee? Yuck! Santorum? Zzzz. Rand Paul? Only if we want to give up in Iraq and the Middle East. Ted Cruz? Okay with me. Cruz definitely needs more exposure, though.

I voted for Romney. He made sense. He still does.

I´m on the fence about most of the other candidates. I hope that some people who thought he was too "white bread" or didn´t vote because of his religion have had time to reflect on their decisions. Those people who stayed home because he wasn´t their "perfect" candidate sent us into this four year hell. Thanks, guys. Next time, really think about it or join a third party.

Rubio has everything right except immigration reform. He realized it and is trying to turn that around. I´m willing to give him a second look. Also don´t underestimate Ryan and Walker.

Rick is right.

Meanwhile, Rubio´s problem is not immigration - on which he has corrected course quite well, it´s a reputed wandering eye. The girls may roll out of the woodwork, a la Herman Cain.

Ah, yes---let me know when you find the great white hope that will lead conservatives to victory. And if you do find one, he´ll be demonized by democrats and the media as soon as he´s mentioned as a candidate (it didn´t take long for them to indict Perry). Mitt has been vetted and events have proven his capability. You all want a great campaigner (like Obama), but I want someone who can actually govern.

Big time loser. The only reason the establishment RINOs want him is because they know he´ll guarantee a democrat victory. All you need to have as proof that he wasn´t really interested in winning, is to see how he´s been doing back flips to kiss Chris Christie´s huge butt. Christie singlehandedly torpedoed any chance for Romney when he went out if his way to suck up to Hussein--right in the middle of the race. No person in their right mind--who really wanted to win a presidential election--would ever forget about that big of a back stab. Unless of course you´re a big phony.

I like Mitt and would vote for him again if he were nominated, but the country cannot afford another GOP losing cause.

We need new blood - but no easily demonized figures or boutique candidacies, please.

Walker and Pence look good to me.

And I don´t think anyone here would object to Mitt serving as Secretary of the Treasury. In fact he might be the perfect fit for that important job.

Scott Walker is a treasure but is fighting a tough reelection battle. He balanced the budget, gave tax refunds, has unemployment going down while his opponent, the Trek bike heiress, was a part of the last administration that left us with a debt equivalent per capita to California. Yet, they are in a dead heat. Only in Wisconsin could the voters be so dumb. Point is, he needs to win and have a great second term before he tackles national office. JMHO

If you are going to run man, damn it, then run. This already looks like a replay of his 2012 campaign of dithering, and being afraid of taking hard positions so as not to offend anyone.

What would you do about illegal immigration, the economy, reversing Obamas illegal executive orders, voter ID, and the messes Obama has made of our foreign relations.

How are you going to get this country going again and to reduce the welfare state. I´m not impressed so far, and I fear I won´t be unless he takes some real leadership positions. Get going now and build a politically smart organization that has a will to win.

Yes - the Romney people keep saying that not voting for him or voting for a third party will just elect the Democrat. Much like John Bell would have said to his base in 1860. We are a major party. If you don´t vote for our candidates then the other major party´s candidates will win.
The other presidential candidate was a Democrat named Douglas and all those people voting for the third party were saying I didn´t leave the Whigs, the Whigs left me. Lets see what this Lincoln guy will do.

The smart one in the family will continue to rein her husband in this time. Thank you Ann. I was never convinced she was all in last time. His name is only out there because the establishment doesn´t have anyone else. You can pay for any "poll" you want! Gee and every poll has him against Christie, a Huckabee (?) - the two jokes. Of course, time-tested GOP talking points say a conservative simply can´t be elected but a guy whose only experience in elected office was a mildly successful ONE term as MA Governor is??

President Mitt "anyone-but-Obama" Romney? Uh...no.
Courage wins elections folks. Romney doesn´t have courage. He´s got some smarts, some financial acumen, and a nice-lookin´ family...but courage is sadly missing when it´s needed.
One example of many: during one of the Presidential debates he apologized to Obama for calling Obamacare--"Obamacare".

*sigh*
Move away from the cameras now, Mitt.

Romney hates to lose. Moran calls him loser but who in the GOP gets most face time in talking about the obama mistakes? Not Moran.

Mitt will only run if no GOP candidate comes forward as a better standard bearer. He has backed Walker. He will serve where he feels called. He lost but didn´t have to check out or check into a rehab center (though that would have matched our cool hip society narrative for a wounded candidate-loser, loser, loser!!!) He not the loser , we are. the country is -but , then, Moran has to make a column to get paid so expect some "loser" ones. IOW, he can´t just comment as the artistic muse inspires him.)

Ranting long but if looking back, the dragging out of the GOP primary, Palin´s backing Newt in so Carolina after Huntsman´s New Hampshire bid-then-fizzle, and Newt, Dear newt of the Florida race and defining Romney as the rich guy, Palin´s naive wish to drag out the primary until the convention? Meanwhile Obama has how many months to define Romney? Romney ahead in January so the Kill Romney leak? Then the resort to the religion factor-the Mormon´s funny dogma. The religious right´s fear of promotion of a "false" religion?

IMO Romney will only run if a better candidate is not found. He couldn´t be king but maybe can be a kingmaker.

And IF he runs, our choice should be clear, as an almost alternative to obama he has political creds and would be in a position to define the democrat candidate while they fight it out in their primary. But we aren´t that united and sly and cooperatively partisan as the dems, right?

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way

The others are Sierra Leone, Guinea and, to a lesser extent, Nigeria.
