Dude, it could happen. Three easy steps to Romney 3.0: He comes out strong for amnesty to mend fences with Latino voters; he finally decides to ix-nay the “makers and takers” etoric-rhay, and of course he chooses Mike Huckabee to be his VP. Can’t. Miss.
Seriously, though, this is just one Republican operative talking and he’s obviously joking. I think?
In interviews with more than a dozen party officials, fundraisers, and strategists in New York and Washington over the past 10 days, Republicans described a palpable sense of anxiety gripping the GOP establishment in the wake of Christies meltdown, and an emerging consensus that the once promising cast of candidates they were counting on to save the GOP from the Tea Party and the nation from Hillary Clinton is looking less formidable by the week…
There are definitely people jumping ship, the operative said, noting that confidence in Christies electability has dropped off sharply among the donors hes heard from…
In fact, its gotten so bad, the operative said, that some donors have started looking back fondly on the good old days of 2012: You know what a lot of them say to me? I think we need Mitt back.
Not even the GOP establishment could be so badly out of tune with America that they’d consider bringing back Romneymania — I think. But the larger point, that Christie’s souring image and the fact that his lingering mutual contempt with conservatives makes him a tougher sell than thought, is apt to make country-clubbers look around for centrist alternatives now. Don’t underestimate either the lingering grudges held by prominent Romney fans towards Christie for his betrayal in 2012...

Can you hear the cheers of approval coming out of the dnc headquarters?
The GOP-e will never learn.
Oh help me Rhonda.
better think again, I’m not voting for another RINO, much less one from the North East
Party time for sure!
Stupidity is doing the same thing over and over again (one RINO after another) and expecting a different result.
Another WINO...Winner In Name Only
Let the Mittster run again. I’ll vote against him twice next time. (No I did not vote for obama)
Oh god shoot me now.
HA! I like it
Which Mitt do they want?
I’ve seen about 100 versions of the fake.
Anyone that lost to Obama after Obama’s nightmare first term, should never even consider running for President again....
Christie was NEVER going to be elected President..........
You run a Conservative or you lose the next election........
Their fixation on the Romneys is bizarre. Aside from George Romney being a successful governor 50 years ago, there really isn’t a lot to base it on. Personally I’m not all that wild about the legacy of George. He practically invited the communists to come in and take Detroit.
They even tried to coax Scott Romney into running for the Michigan senate seat this time around.
STUPID, corrupt bastards all.
Sigh... I voted for McCain way back when (but I was young and unknowing), but last time Mitt didn’t get my vote. He definitely won’t get it this time around.
Listening to Allahpundit, the atheist, anti-palin, homosexual marriage supporter, whine about rinos is like listening to McCain or Graham do it.
Insanity is an ugly thing
