Rumor Has It Mitt Romney Might Take Another Crack at White House

romneyJust when Americans thought they had heard the last of Mitt Romney, the rumor mill begins to spin tales that the former presidential candidate might take another crack at the White House in 2016. The rumors are not coming completely out of left field, as Romney has been a busy bee, making appearances on 12 different media programs in the last six months. Add this together with the fact that he is planning a dinner for his previous campaign staff and simple mathematics tells you that there is something going on. Whether or not that “something” is a second attempt at the presidency is yet to be confirmed, but that has not stopped speculation.

Romney has seen a resurgence in popularity recently, largely due to Obama’s big foreign policy goof-ups with Vladimir Putin. When the former Republican candidate was running for president in 2012, one of his biggest criticisms of Obama’s foreign policy was his take on Russia, and in a recent editorial that was penned by Romney, he pulls no punches by pointing out his correct assumption of the situation in light of recent events. While much evidence is pointing toward another bid for the White House, Romney has stated that he absolutely has no intentions of running for president again.

Despite repeatedly saying no to the media about a potential run, many news outlets are buzzing about all of the attention Romney is receiving, some going so far as to call him the front runner for the Republican Party in the 2016 race. These outlets refuse to see this as just a rumor, believing, even seeming to desire, Romney to take another crack at the White House. If the GOP choose Romney, or another establishment figure like him, say for example, Jeb Bush, they are guaranteed to lose the election and the American people will see another Clinton as Commander-in-Chief. Perhaps that is what left-leaning journalists are wanting, drooling on themselves at the idea that a two-time presidential race loser will be Hillary Clinton’s opponent in the 2016 race, all but solidifying her victory. This in and of itself should be sufficient motivation for the Republican Party to make sure that Romney does not get anywhere near the party nomination. Every effort should be made to dissuade him from even thinking of taking a third shot at the presidency.

Even if Romney were to win the presidential race, the country would be no better off under his leadership than Clinton’s. He is a Progressive, as is indicated by his creation of a government run health care program in Massachusetts, similar in nature to Obamacare. If the country is to survive, the same old big government, high spending policies must be stopped. It is impossible to get different results by trying the same exact methods over and over again. A true free market system, something that honestly has not been tried in America, despite what school textbooks say, is the only way to fix things economically. The country needs a candidate who stands for a true free market, will seek to do away with needless regulation, and will do everything possible to get the government out of the private lives of citizens. It is apparent that if the rumor is true, and Mitt Romney takes another crack at the White House, the GOP will practically hand the Democrats the presidency in 2016.

    I disagree with you Micheal Ronald Reagan ran for president 2 times lost both then ran for his 3rd time and won. And Ronald Reagan became considerably one of the best if not greatest president in American history. And if a Bush and Clinton run in 2016 our country will rot.

    This author is so very wrong about Mitt Romney. There are thousands upon thousands of us out here doing everything we can to get Mitt Romney to run again. We support him and are ready to work to put him in the White House. Mitt Romney is far and away the top choice for the presidency regardless of how many times he has run. He will wipe the floor with Hilary Clinton. Winners don’t quite, and Mitt Romney will yet become one of America’s greatest presidents and leaders. #GoPresidentRomney! #mittromney2016\

    I agree with Marcus and Don. I hope to God he runs again; no matter what you think of him, he is our best chance to fix this country on either side of the aisle.

    I’m glad my Mormon Grand father died never seeing the travesty Mitt Romney as made of Mormons with is long trail of deceit and lies.

    1) Romney is the most capable AND most decent (i.e. purest) candidate either party has had run for so high an office, probably ever. Period.

    2) Electorate composition. Not what it once was. Had it been in 12 what it was in Reagan’s day, Romney would’ve trounced Obama by a landslide of larger margin than what Ron enjoyed. And that’s a fact, not conjecture.

    Going foward…if nonwhites continue to pretty much be mindlocked in the booth, then it’s all pointless. Whites differ based on political thought. Nonwhites vastly do not; whatever one of them thinks, pretty much the rest of them think 85% of the time as well. So, unless nonwhites graduate to varied political thought, it won’t matter who Republicans have to vote for. Well, I suppose the other factor to consider in that calculus is how much an impact skin-voters will have if they drop off postObama.

    This is why Jeb Bush is out there downplaying illegal aliens’ lawlessness as acts of love to support their families. Smart politically, but damning for those of us who know the same courtesy wouldn’t be extended by people like Jeb for struggling fathers who, out of an act of love to support their families, resort to selling some drugs, shoplifting a loaf of bread or not paying some of their taxes.

    Jeb, unlike Mitt, is a progressive if we are throwing that word around. Romney, for all intents and purposes, is as close a true reformer as we will get. The bench is nice — Cruz, Rand, Lee — but they are Goldwaters, not Presidents. Each of those guys will get humiliated. Jeb, if he runs and wins, well then so what. Big deal. Trajectory vectors slightly different. But put that executive pen in Mitt’s hand, with his background, he cannot help but go to work on the budget, deficit and, most importantly the waste of redundancy and inefficiency plaguing us by way of this bureaucracy or that department and this office and that policy.

    3) Hillary would beat any of the so-called tea party candidates. She beats Christie easy. Even money with Jeb – a virtual coin flip. And, she probably loses by a decent margin to Mitt. His numbers are up, his brand is unparalleled, he’s been a national figure for a number of years now. He’s concise, beyond admirable professionally and personally. In other words, he’s basically everything the country needs now, needed in 2012 and 2008 and definitely will need in 2016.

    It’s just a matter of how poor a caliber the electorate will be on that day because, so far, Americans have spoken and they like big government.

    I agree with Don, I think that Mitt Romney had the presence of a President. The intelligence necessary to make an impact on America’s deficit. And most importantly, I think he is a born leader that would excel as President.

  7. Michael Cantrell   April 7, 2014 at 7:12 pm

    I disagree Don. If a candidate runs twice and loses, it is a pretty safe bet he lacks what is necessary to pull of a victory. He is provably the worst candidate next to Chris Christie. The country does not need the lesser of two evils. Nor do Romney’s economic policies go far enough to fix the damage that has been done. He is a progressive who still believes government can fix things rather than a free market. It is the same story we here from Democrats. It isn’t going to work.

  8. Don   April 7, 2014 at 6:53 pm

    So supporting the best guy who can fix our economic situation and fix our national defense isn’t worth the risk according to the author. I say that’s hogwash. Romney was the best presidential choice in 2012, and he will be our best hope in 2016.
