Romney wants Hillary's 'Three F Plan'
The Hill ^ | June 24, 2014 | John LeBoutillier

Posted on 06/25/2014 2:07:05 AM PDT by kingattax

Here is the dirty little secret of the GOP donor class, i.e. the rich establishment bundlers who funded the recent presidential campaigns of the Bushes, Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) and former Gov. Mitt Romney (Mass.): They are actively trying to recruit Romney to run again in 2016 — and Mitt is indeed interested.

Their first choice coming out of the 2012 election debacle was Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.), but his candidacy has virtually crashed and burned — despite his desperate self-denial. Other than his uber-patron, Ken Langone, the donors have moved on.

Many of these professional donors have hopes that former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) will replace Christie as their guy, but there is one major problem: Jeb doesn't appear to have the fire in the belly and there is substantial doubt that he will, in the end, actually run. At least that was the word sweeping through emails and conference calls heading into mid-June's exclusive Romney-sponsored GOP ideas summit out in Utah

Must say when I saw the "three F Plan" I pretty much thought

1. F the GOP base 2. F the Tea Party 3. F America

They privately blame the 2011/2012 GOP primary and debate system that moved Mitt too far to the right and chopped him up to the point where he could not recover in the shortened general election season after the abnormally late GOP convention.

Those damned Conservatives...

The GOP is the enemy of mankind and freedom.

It is the party of RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE, statism,
improper executive authority, and defense of Obama
rather than the US Constitution.

The GOP will continue to backstab conservatives
using Romney and Rove’s stolen money.

Why is a guy interested in running making all the major major pronouncements that only make his putative base want to stay home?

He would really have a better chance if he ran as a Democrat.

Furthermore, as a Democrat his wealth and success in life would be an asset rather than a liability.

MITT ROMNEY - THE PROVEN BAD GOVERNOR

"As U.S. real output grew 13 percent between 2002 and 2006, Massachusetts trailed at 9 percent.
* Manufacturing employment fell 7 percent nationwide those years, but sank 14 percent under Romney, placing Massachusetts 48th among the states.
* Between fall 2003 and autumn 2006, U.S. job growth averaged 5.4 percent, nearly three times Massachusetts' anemic 1.9 percent pace.
* While 8 million Americans over age 16 found work between 2002 and 2006, the number of employed Massachusetts residents actually declined by 8,500 during those years.
"Massachusetts was the only state to have failed to post any gain in its pool of employed residents," professors Sum and McLaughlin concluded.
In an April 2003 meeting with the Massachusetts congressional delegation in Washington, Romney failed to endorse President Bush's $726 billion tax-cut proposal."

Mittens is not a nice guy, except to fellow leftists, but we need a winner as Pres. No more proven losers.

Many who know both Mitt and his wife, Ann Romney, believe they have never gotten over their 2012 defeat

Fat, Frumpy, and Fouled up? (3F)

If it’s Romney again, or some other form of liberal clone, I can’t honestly see myself voting - no matter who the heck they are facing.

It will happen when 4 conservatives don’t try at the same time and slowly give the nomination to the lone moderate.

And onece again the GOP will tell Conservatives “give us your money and votes; then shut up and sit in the back of the room”. And many will do exactly that.

Not me.

Wilbur didn’t really want to be Prez last time. I’d vote No this time.

Mittens better than Hitlery but so is Charles Manson. . . .

If Manson became president, some more people might be convinced that less government might be called for.

Besides the fact that he is a proven loser, Romney is actually older than HRC.
