Former Republican Govs. Mitt Romney, right, and Jeb Bush are formidable presidential contenders, says Bill Weld.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld says Mitt Romney or Jeb Bush would be the GOP's best option for winning back the White House in 2016.
In an interview with U.S. News, Weld name-checked the pair as the potential candidates who "loom larger than the rest of the competition."
I like them both very much," Weld said in a response to a question about his presidential preference. "I'm not saying Scott Walker or Marco Rubio couldn't find a voice. But Romney and Bush seem bigger, loom larger."
Weld's comments come just as Bush's son, George P. Bush, stoked more speculation about his father's political plans on Sunday. He told ABC News Jeb Bush is "giving this a serious thought in moving forward."
Weld, who was a finance chair for Romney's prior two presidential bids, says be believes Bush appears to be moving in the direction of a campaign, pointing to former President George W. Bush's comments earlier this month, saying his brother wants to be president.

My calendar must be broke. Is it 2014 or 2016?
Here we come, walkin down the street...Hey Hey We’re The Monkeys!
Or 2008, or 2012?
Scott Walker 2016
Romney needs to STFU.
No more Bush’s please.
I will not vote for either. If they are the choice I will just assume that the GOP does not want my vote.
Yah, best choice for 8 more years of Democrat presidents...or 8 more years of democrat policies regardless of who gets elected.
I said this jokingly a couple of days ago!
Dole says he wants Romney to run again in 2016
Welcome the new Dumb and Dumber!
I’ll vote third party if either Mitt, Jeb, Christy, Rand, or any other false choice is presented.
We lose with any of these losers. Hillary is a shoe-in with any of them.
My vote might as well be worth something and be for someone who actually represents my values, morals, and principles.
Darn. I was hoping for Graham or Christie.
The bush name already has too high a negative. I cannot believe we’re even having to hear his name.
W was better educated and more successful in private industry than Jeb. I wouldn’t vote for W again but I would him before I would Jeb. Other than having the last name bush and being married to a Latino, Jeb offers nothing. I would even take Romney over Jeb.
Jeb should move to Mexico and take his wetback mistress with him!
“Romney and Jeb loom larger than the rest...”
Then we are out of luck...again. :(
Two losers if I ever saw any.
