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

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?

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

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.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

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

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. 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

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
