Bob Schieffer: Romney may consider 2016 run if Jeb Bush doesn’t
Washington Post ^ | 4/27/2014 | Wesley Lowery

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.

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.

Romney would be confusing the public's Obama-fatigue with actual public support for Mitt Romney.

Yes. The Romney Agenda of bad governance,

RomneyCARE, and ObamaCARE,
and, now, RomneyMarriage to animals.

Absolutely. Go Mitt.

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.

“Look, I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush. I’m not trying to return to Reagan-Bush,”

In time Romney became a supporter of democrats financially, a fund raiser, and a democrat voter.

“”Mitt Romney’s 1992 Democratic Primary vote for Paul Tsongas — a technocratic modernizer and reformer, but very much a Democrat — raised some Republican eyebrows last week.
What hasn’t been mentioned: Romney’s 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 doesn’t 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.””

I'd like to see BOTH Romeny and Jeb running... at the SAME time.

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!

The GOPe would never allow both Jeb and Mitt to run against each other ...

Naw ... the GOPe wisely prefers to spend its cash secretly sponsoring "political dark-horse whores" like Little Rickey Santorum and Mike Huckabee to dilute and divide the REAL conservative vote ...

just like they recently did in South Carolina.

Christie, Bush, and Romney are not viable candidates, unless we are looking for a close second place in an otherwise winnable election.

Hey Bob's why not push pushing McCain?

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.
