Posted on 07/08/2014 6:01:25 PM PDT by WilliamIII
Mitt Romney has said time and time again that he has no interest in running for president a third time.
But, on Sunday morning, CBS' Bob Schieffer said not to write off the idea of a 2016 campaign by Romney so quickly.
"I have a source that told me that if Jeb Bush decides not to run, that Mitt Romney may actually try it again," Schieffer said.

With all the people who live in this great nation; and this is the best we can come up with?
Where is Ronald Reagan?
Stay out da bushes and da romneys.
Stay out of Romney Marsh.
Jeb, Mit - No.Friggen.Thank.You.
Bob Schieffer is still alive?
How is Romney a good candidate?
A lot of us won’t vote for him this time. I voted for and supported him last time around, but I am now anti-Romney.
I know I am not alone in my now-opposition.
Who exactly would vote for Romney this time, who didn’t last time?
So there are a number of us who won’t support Romney now, who did last election.
Who in the world will he win with?
He didn’t win last time. How can he do better next time?
Go away Mitt.
Just go away.
And I shall consider neither of them for president.
Do you want it in the head or do you want it in the heart?
OH GOD HELP US! There has to be somebody else! There has to be!
Romney = Obama light
I don’t understand why Romney would even consider it, maybe as a Democrat.
Bob Schieffer is just hoping to be taking solid food in 2016.
Yes. The Romney Agenda of bad governance,
open borders, lying all the time,
RomneyCARE, and ObamaCARE,
and, now, RomneyMarriage to animals.
Absolutely. Go Mitt.
What better describes the GOP?
Methinks the media is up to something. They see Hillary in her long continuing self-implosion and they’re worried about the presidential race in 2016 so why not build up a sure loser for the GOP, and to prop up a two time loser is even better.
Boy just what we need, a retread RINO who didn’t really want to be President last time he ran, running again. Nurse Ratched we’ll be needing prep for 200 million frontal lobotomies please. : 0
Bad... Now available in Stereo!
Both are progressive and worthless!
rino 2 will run if rino 1 doesn’t. yawn. kabuki makes me tired.
I think Bob Scheiffer is erect only because of Viagra.
Romney and Bush?
Dumb and dumber.
Either that or rigor mortis is setting in.
The Reaganites were purged out of the party leadership by the GOPe over the past quarter century.
Mitt couldn’t even beat John McCain.
Romney could not defeat the worst president in the last seventy years. Why in H3LL would we want him back?
What he said!
Look, I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush. Im not trying to return to Reagan-Bush,
In time Romney became a supporter of democrats financially, a fund raiser, and a democrat voter.
Mitt Romneys 1992 Democratic Primary vote for Paul Tsongas a technocratic modernizer and reformer, but very much a Democrat raised some Republican eyebrows last week.
What hasnt been mentioned: Romneys vote formally enrolled him in the Democratic Party.
The speculation is that Romney had originally intended to challenge Ted Kennedy in the Democrat primary then decided to run as a Republican. This makes his 1994 campaign strategy much more understandable.
According to a Romney campaign spokesperson, Romney switched back. One doesnt know how Romney managed to switch back. According to the town clerk, Romney became an Republican only on October 19, 1993. The implication is that Romney had either never voted between his registration as a independent in 1979 and 1992 (so his vote in 1992 automatically enrolled him as a Democrat) or that he was a regular Democrat voters in those earlier elections and changed to Republican to run for Senate.
In nomination campaigns in the past, it's the GOPe being quite disciplined, offering up one combatant at a time against a spread like butter set of 3, 4, 6, whatever decent conservative GOPtp candidates. If the GOPe faltered, its candidate would bow out, while the replacement would step in.
Both Romeny and Jeb running simultaneously would water-down the GOPe vote.
Now, just need some discipline among the GOPtp candidates!
(For anyone who does not get the reference, it was a really stupid bomb of a movie.)
Christie, Bush, and Romney are not viable candidates, unless we are looking for a close second place in an otherwise winnable election.
Neither one. Ever.
They can run under the DemocRat party. The Detroit RepublicRats must be purged from the party. Fock them.
Hey Bob... pick a democrat... We can pick out own standard without your liberal elite help.
Yes, fifth-columnist Schieffer is still stealing oxygen.
If you're lucky you'll get Hilliary. If not, you got the fake Indian. Enjoy them both.
I did not vote for the Romney in 2012. I will not vote for Romney in 2016. I will not vote for Romney in my lifetime nor in God’s lifetime.
Your Master Romney ATTACKED the SPEAKER to give us Obama II. YOU LOVED it.
Now you threaten with Hillary and the faux Indian for Your Master.
Your Master has ruined America.
McCains's liberal and he's proven can lose. Oh wait, he was your choice for Republican wasn't he? Isn't that your game Bob? Choose the most liberal Republican out there, then help him lose....?
CBS’ Bob Schieffer would flap his arms and be able to fly before he would vote for a Republican for President. Yeah, he might ‘debate’ it mentally to delude himself into pretending he's independent but he's NOT. It would never happen. Each 'debate' ends the same - he votes democrat.
Schieffer’s as likly to vote for Republican as I am to vote for Hillary. The difference is I'm honest about it and he's not.
If the Demonrats nominate Fauxcahontas and Romney announced his residency as California, he could run as Fauxcahontas’ running mate in the party where the ideological treasonweasel actually belongs.
The headline sounds like permission granted
He is in heaven talking to George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Roger Sherman, Abe Lincoln and Calvin Coolidge.
Thanks for the pep talk, little Susie Sunshine.
Between the two, I don’t know which I think would be better.
I think Scott Walker ought to consider running...
Yes, Skeletor is with us yet, spreading mischief about the viability of the Bush dynasty.
Shut up, Skeletor! You give old age a bad name.
