Skip to comments.Mitt Romney's 2014 renaissance (Barf)
Posted on 07/06/2014 7:07:18 AM PDT by cotton1706
Mitt Romney is looking to keep his sterling endorsement streak alive as the 2014 campaign transitions from primary to general election season.
The former GOP presidential nominee has a perfect record after getting involved in a number of competitive Republican races this year. Now, with Senate control on the line and his party eager to add to their House majority, hes turning his attention to helping many of those same candidates in tough fall battles.
Free from the pressures of daily life in the spotlight, Romney has undergone a latter-day renaissance, rebuilding his public image after a brutal 2012 campaign. Two years later, hes being welcomed on the trail with open arms as one of his partys most sought-after surrogates. Republican candidates and strategists salivate over his fundraising prowess and seem less and less worried about potential baggage from appearing with him.
As an elder statesman in the party, he's able to endorse good, conservative candidates that can win. For too long the party has been without someone who can help the most conservative candidates who can win a primary and still win the general, said Ryan Williams, a former Romney aide who is now working former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, now running in New Hampshire.
Romney stumped with Brown on Wednesday in the Granite State, just the latest in a crowded schedule of campaign events. Hes already headed to more than a dozen states to help the GOP, from New York and California to Idaho and Michigan.
The former Massachusetts governor has endorsed 33 candidates this election cycle, including many facing competitive primaries. So far, not a single one has lost.

In reality he's a believe in nothing but moderation loser who is being used to undermine conservatives across the country.
His Loserness didn't pull a single Establishment senate candidate across the line in 2012.
BAIN was the second or third major funder of Cochran.
It’s all about the money and Romney has boatloads of it. The rest of this article is puffed up bullsh**.
Go away Mitt!
Mitt, the situational ethics RINO.
A sure way to lose national elections.
Nope. Birds of a feather. But as is very clear to many of us, they’d rather lose with one of their candidates than win with a conservative.
But two can play at that game, for our goal is to elect more conservatives, not just more “r’s”
The GOPe worships money and the corporate providers of it.
That’s all they care about aside from destroying the middle class.
We really do not need to repeat 2012.
At the same time, who is ready to stand up for America?
Who is on America’s side? I am not speaking about China. I am speaking about America.
Both parties seem to be sold out at the moment. Everyone seems to be sold out.
Just saying. America needs a generation of support.
Who will provide support for the USA?
He is very Nixon-like in his politics. Especially when it comes to more centralization.
Ya know, I get them pushing Jeb. I can’t stand it or him, but I get it. But Romney? He wouldn’t do as well the next time as he did the last. Yeah there are a few polls floating around showing Romney;s favorables have improved, he would do better against Obama but EVERY SINGLE politician does better AFTER they leave office or the public eye. Those polls mean d**k.
Romney would be running against Hildabeast and would be an off the rails disaster.
As a friend of mine used to say ... you’re rich so why aren’t you smart? That applies to the GOPe money people.
Romney and Obama “circling” each other during the debate looked phonier than “World Wrestling Entertainment.”
Let’s get run with a conservative who intends to win.
They’re still trying to pimp that progressive liberal Romney.
The pretend “republican” person who has the worst chance of ever becoming POTUS.
Republicans are “salivating” over Romney according to the article.
“He’s able to endorse good,conservative candidates that can win.”
Yea,right.Able maybe,but not willing.
Nobody’s more of an establishment mule than Mitt.
Therefore we should only support non productive politicians, like 0bams a poor organizer,no stocks biden, lowest paid gov clintons...
“He is very Nixon-like in his politics. Especially when it comes to more centralization.”
That much is true. But Romney is no political powerhouse, as Nixon was. And Nixon was NEVER nicey, nicey with the democrats on the campaign. He skewered them at every opportunity. Romney apparently thought that campaigning hard and releasing hard-hitting ads was beneath him.
And the difference, Nixon actually wanted power, and fought hard to get it. Romney, like Tom Dewey, thought it should just be granted to him.
John McCain, Mitt Romney, and the GOPe are the reason we have Obummer, never forget that. They deserve a special place in hell.
IOW, Romney’s no good at effecting the façade of conservatism.
Well, he will get a majority of Dhimmocratic votes in all the open primaries.
Just like Juan did.
I have no countenance with a man who will not do battle for his ideals. He’s already proved this; there is no need to dress up a pig in perfume and makeup and call it Betty Grable.
In 1966 Richard Nixon toured the country, supporting moderate Republicans all over the place, just like Mitt is doing in 2014.
It was a good year for Republicans back then with Senate victories for Howard Baker in TN and Charles Percy in IL and set the stage for Nixon’s 1968 comeback and election victory.
Is Mitt Romney the new RIchard NixOn?
The GOPe worships money and the corporate providers of it.
Yes, the GOP is money and Government Over People.
Tricky Mitt! lol
No. Nixon was more conservative and more honest than Mitt.
The left is trying to set up the best possible candidate from the “right” to win in case their chosen candidate (Clinton, Warren, Biden, Kerry) can’t win.
It happens every Presidential election.
Nixon did absorb Goldwater’s people into his organization to be sure, but his foreign policy of talking with Communists from Vietnam to China and the Soviet Union and cutting deals with I remember with disgust.
Nixon’s FCC shut down a radio preacher’s station on Fairness Doctrine grounds after he led marches for military victory in the Vietnam War.
The “opening up” of China is coming back to bite us.
There was nothing “conservative” about the EPA and OSHA which Nixon created with his signature.
Former Air Force Chief of Staff Curtis Lemay believes his targeting by the IRS during Nixon’s presidency was because he ran as George Wallace’s third party running mate in 1968.
When the former White House counsel for Nixon, Charles Colson, called the “hatchet man” of the administration went to jail over Watergate he wrote many letters of apology to those he wronged.
“In 1966 Richard Nixon toured the country, supporting moderate Republicans all over the place, just like Mitt is doing in 2014.”
That is EXACTLY what they’re doing and planning. For the historians among us, it’s clear as day.
I know that's not saying much.
Mitt, I will throw the election Romney.
On the right Romney, an honest honorable man. On the left 0bama, a lying leftist poser. I leave it to you to decide which man deserves the ‘barf’.
Let give Nixon credit for the dignity that he brought to the office and also his willingness to resign the presidency instead of playing the victim card Bill Clinton chose to.
Romney imposed ROMNEYCARE and lied about it.
He tanked the Mass economy and lied about it.
He backstabbed EVERY conservative and lied about it.
What kind of ‘honest honorable man’ is that?
Not one of the three words apply.
Romney has a history of supporting abortion and queers. In the spring of 2012, he said that two people of the same sex "who love each other" (surging nausea) should be able to adopt children, thereby giving his personal stamp to queer child abuse.
How is he in any way honorable?
Both of them.
FALSE. Wrong. A lie.
Romney is an amoral male human (a man is a male human with courage and honor) who thinks minor-age girls who are pregnant and whose parents refuse consent for an abortion, have a right to have a judge override their parents. Romney is an amoral male human who thinks the government should be able to force adoption agencies to place children with homosexual "parents."
Romney is registered in the Republican party. He is also a lying leftist poser. That the Democrat party has equally leftist lying posers, is beside the point.
Mitt is far far better than Obama.
