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*

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?

Report: Obama Has Missed over Half
His Second-Term Daily Intel Briefings

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

An alarm box near the front entrance of the White House designed to alert guards to an intruder had been muted at what officers believed was a request of the usher’s office, said a Secret Service official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

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,

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. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Burnett made the remark towards the end of her program while narrating video footage of the couple exiting a New York City hospital with Bill and Hillary Clinton just steps behind them. Of course when William and Kate left the hospital with their bundle of joy, the proud royal parents had the moment to themselves, not
