Mitt Romney 2016: Who Else is There?
After two straight landslide defeats in presidential election, the Republican Party found itself in desperate need of a fresh face with new ideas and broader appeal moving toward 2016.
Simply put, they need a top tier candidate. But as political forecaster Larry Sabato summed up last week: It’s lonely at the top of the Republican field — like, “top of Mt. Everest” lonely. In our latest shuffle of the 2016 Crystal Ball presidential outlook, we’ve decided that the Republican first tier is…empty. Our Republican friends might object, but deep down, we think they would be hard-pressed to argue for any single name to head this long list.”
All the theoretical GOP front-runners are tainted. Chris Christie, Scott Walker and Rick Perry are mired in scandal. Rand Paul’s political backflips have been dizzying, leading even conservative pundits to raise the question: “Is he jettisoning his worldview to revive a presidential campaign?”
So what savior can be that fresh face that rescues the party for 2016? Why, Mitt Romney of course! You may recall him from his defeat in the 2008 GOP primary, or from his general election shellacking in 2012. But with a complete dearth of serious candidates, what other choice do Republicans have?
So as more and more GOP-ers take the car elevator back to the Mitt Romney bandwagon, let it be known that he indeed has at least some crossover appeal — American Bridge’s own Brad Woodhouse has already endorsed his candidacy. Run, Mitt, run!
We never thought we’d say this, but… join Mitt Romney (seriously) and tell John Boehner that it’s time to raise the minimum wage: http://bit.ly/1joDNBw
In an interview with the Boston Globe, GOP presidential contender Mitt Romney’s son Tagg described his father as reluctant to run for the presidency and hesitant to reveal his personal side during the long campaign. “He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. He had no desire to … run,” said Tagg, according to the report.
“If he could have found someone else to take his place … he would have been ecstatic to step aside,” he continued.” “He is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them, but he has deep faith in God and he loves his country, but he doesn’t love the attention.”
These are the people Mitt Romney has picked for his team. Tell him you won’t be a part of it by committing to vote for Barack Obama: http://ofa.bo/G8ANvu
