JOE SCARBOROUGH: DRAFT MITT ROMNEY IN 2016!
Breitbart Big Government ^ | 14 Jun 2014 | by TONY LEE

Posted on 06/14/2014 5:41:51 PM PDT by kingattax

Joe Scarborough, the MSNBC host who has transformed into one of his generation's most preeminent Rockefeller Republicans, believes Mitt Romney should run for president again in 2016.

Speaking to about 300 guests at "a luxury resort in the Rocky Mountains" with other potential GOP presidential hopefuls like Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Scarborough reportedly urged the establishment donors and insiders to being a “Draft Romney” movement.

“This is the only person that can fill the stage,” Scarborough said at a summit hosted by Romney, according to a Washington Post report.

Joe’s just a step behind Keith Olbermann.

I see Joe chose the lobotomy instead of the bottle.

Lol... Romney never “filled the stage.” He was MIA when he should have attacked BO on Benghazi, proving he was not up to the job.

Count me out. I want a conservative street fighter, not someone who rolls over when presented with a golden opportunity to take Obama’s miserable head off as happened in the Candy Fata$$ Crowly debate.

Yes.

Romney and Cantor in 2016 - The brains and soul of the GOP.

Romney fled the country during the Vietnam war, when his dad was running to become a war time president, (the anti-war republican).

Romney doesn’t like the word “draft”.

2007 Mitt Romney “I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and be representing our country there, and in some ways it was frustrating not to feel like I was there as part of the troops that were fighting in Vietnam.’

1994 Mitt Romney “It was not my desire to go off and serve in Vietnam”

Joe is occasionally lucid — like a person with Alzheimer’s having an unusually good day.

But 99% of the time he is 99% demented. This suggestion of Romney is in the 99% range.

Romney...Oh, Please! I know some say Romney would have been “better” than Clown Prince nobama (as a way to say he should run again). Heck...anyone who ever existed would be “better” than Clown Prince nobama.

All of you, just STFU! Of course Romney must, must I say, run again, and again, until the SOB gets it right!

But wait. There's more! Having The Mormon Milquetoast around town again will enable Medical Science to tackle one of this century's great unsolved mysteries. Is the Ken-Doll in the weird underwear alive, or dead?

I could never tell. As an old FReeper, youse owe me an answer ... to hell with the election!

I voted for Romney in the general election but I would NEVER vote for him again-—not after his “come back” statements badmouthing conservatives. Draft him into Obama’s amnesty approving minions.

Romney won...Obama stole the election by voter fraud.

Romney was my very last pick...but he was light years better than Obama.

Hmm. I wonder what motivated old Joe to back Romney? I bet it was something spontaneous.

As I recall during the last election, Mitt Romney said he was out of politics if he did not run.

That is exactly the kind of nonsense an MSNBC Republican host/pundit would say. He has to keep in step with the rest of the MSNBC crazies.

Romney in 2016!!! It ain’t gonna happen....ever!!! Romney was a weak & terrible candidate in 2014. He should have wiped up the floor with Obama. Instead...he crawled into his hiding hole like the weakling he is!!! And....because Romney did take on Obama, our country is being openly destroyed by Obama and his Democrat Party!!! Pubbies....defeat all RINOs in the Republican primaries, and destroy the entire Democrat Party on November 4, 2014!!! Get out and vote to save our country!!!

"On May 6, 1843, Smith allegedly gave numerous predictions in this prophecy, but the portion that is most repeated speaks of a day when the Constitution of the United States will “hang by a thread.” It will be “preserved and saved” by a White Horse, A.K.A. the Mormon Church."

If he couldn’t win the last go around, what makes Joe think Mitt even has a chance. Next thing Joe will be saying, let’s get behind Eric Cantor (for the children) The GOP liberals are suicidal but that change can’t come fast enough for me :)
