Skip to comments.Mitt Romney Is the 2016 Republican Frontrunner (NH)
Posted on 01/30/2014 11:31:11 AM PST by RKBA Democrat
Mitt Romney leads the Republican field among New Hampshire primary voters for 2016. Yes, you read that right.
Why not make it a third run for president? That's something that the former Republican nominee is definitely not thinking about right now. To put it in his own recent words: "Oh, no, no, no. No, no, no, no, no. No, no, no."
But that didn't stop the Virginia-based bipartisan policy firm Purple Strategies from adding his name to a recent survey for Granite State voters, which shows Romney in the lead with 25 percent support. Libertarian firebrand Rand Paul (who has strong infrastructure in New Hampshire) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are behind with 18 percent and 17 percent support, respectively.
We might be experiencing Mittmentum 3.0. The Netflix documentary about his 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns was recently released to the excitement of political insiders everywhere. GOP insiders want him to come back: "You know what a lot of them say to me?" an anonymous "operative" told BuzzFeed. "I think we need Mitt back." Romney was even on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to slow jam the news.
So are we sure he's not running again? "People are always gracious and say, 'Oh, you should run again,' " he said in an interview earlier this month. "I'm not running again."
He's done this kind of race before. He's got the staff. He's got the loyalty. He has the money. Time has passed.
Is there a chance? "I think that Chris Christie and Paul Ryan and Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, and the list goes on, have a much better chance of doing that," he said in the same interview, "and so I will support one of them as they become the nominee."
Maybe, maybe not.
Geesh! Not this s**t again.
It's part of The Tao of Republican Orthodoxy — once you understand that everything they do makes sense, and you will never again fail to understand the seemingly endless ability to
snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory that the GOP shows.

But definitely Cruz for Senate Majority Leader.
Wow, what a dream that would be! And we have to get rid of that conservative traitor and embarrassment Boehner!
Nothing makes it more apparent that the RNC/Chamber of Commerce/globalist puppet masters would rather lose to dems than to cede power to constitutional conservatives than these attempts to nominate anyone but them and those who stand with them.
This needs to be repeated.
Romney wasn't my first choice in '12.He wasn't my second choice.But on election day I knew he'd be a noticeably...perhaps even dramatically...better president than Osama would be.And my suspicion has been proven correct.
In '16 if,by chance,he's the nominee I know that he'll be a noticeably better...if not dramatically better....President than would the Former Twelfth Lady or Princess Liawatha (do *not* be surprised if she's the Rat nominee).
And I know that the only two people who'll get even a single Electoral vote are the Republican and the Rat nominees.
Had to check it to make sure it wasn’t satire...
Not just “no”, but HELL no.
Willard get lost liberal ...
With candidates like Palin, West, Rand, Cruz, etc...
It makes no sense to go with Willard, Jeb, or Chris.
Is the GOP afraid of actually running a REAL conservative? That they might win in Reaganesque fashion and have to actually DELIVER on their promises?
I always said that if we were to have a first in the nation primary, that it ought to be Missouri.
Think about it...
1. It’s midwestern in its thinking (the northern part)
2. It’s southern in its thinking (the southern part)
3. It’s suburban in it’s thinking (the burbs of KC and St Louis)
4. It’s urban in it’s thinking (KC and St Louis)
In short, it has a little of everything that would make it more representative than Iowa or New Hampshire.
P.S. I’m not from Missouri and have no relatives or business concerns there.
Pick two. Any two.
My 26 year old son was actually thrilled to hear this.... me, not so much.
Sadly, Walker is pro-amnesty - the final nail in the coffin of America...
What are you talking about? Romney, politically-speaking, is nothing more than Obama's clone.
And don't give me that shit about the party "holding his feet to the fire" — if they won't even oppose "the other team's guy", why should I believe they'd oppose their own?
moreover, anybody that approves of the plan to "repeal" Obamacare by issuing exemptions to all the states is an idiot — doing that would only give the President the power to extort the several states.
It would be a shame if your exemption were… terminated, no?)
The same Romney who couldn’t beat the IRANIAN AGENT preaching islam with no I.D. ?
