Skip to comments.As Democrats avoid Obama, Romney is in demand on the midterm campaign trail

President Obama thumped Mitt Romney in the 2012 election, but now their political standings seem reversed. During a summer in which Democratic candidates are keeping their distance from an unpopular president, Romney is emerging as one of the Republican Partys most in-demand campaign surrogates.
Over three days in mid-August, Romney will campaign for GOP Senate and gubernatorial candidates in West Virginia, North Carolina and Arkansas, aides said. In September, he is planning visits to the presidential swing states of Colorado and Virginia.
Romney is filling up his October schedule, as well.
Democrats dont want to be associated with Barack Obama right now, but Republicans are dying to be associated with Mitt Romney, said Spencer Zwick, a longtime Romney confidant who chaired his national finance council.

The reason for zer0’s second term is in demand??? Brilliant!
Someone’s smoking crack.
Lots of buyers remorse out there.
REALLY?? In demand by whom???
Obamacare was modeled on Romneycare.
I never wanted either of them.
The LAST thing we need is a Romney resurgence, because he never surged in the first place. Enough already. Stay out da Bushes as well.
It has that JournoList stench to it.
Oh! Yeah! Let the Pubbies re-nominate Romney.
After all, he is the guy who lost to the guy who lost to Obama in 2008. And, he is the guy who lost to Obama in 2012.
A sure winner — for the Republicans — as far as the Dems/MSM are concerned.
The sooner the better
Since way back, the issue hasn't been who the DEMOgoguebureauCRATS prop up for election. That's easy. Everybody knows that will be problematic. The issue has always been who the GOP will offer - a true American who will stand up for freedom and what is right, or some "politically expedient" hybrid of what the Left is offering.
As I said on another post, everybody knows the Left is wacko - the problem is with the Right.
Excellent GOPe, run to a 3 time loser for support.
This is always about money. And Romney has boatloads of it.
“...but Republicans are dying to be associated with Mitt Romney,
Exactly which Pubbies are?
Whatever. The GOPe and the MSM are both trying to boost Romney to run again in 2016 where it is certain he would lose another presidential race. The fact that a number of positive Romney articles are appearing in columns nationwide attests to it.
I’d guess it’s ones who want to tap into his massive cash hoard.
1%ers at it again!
The left will continue to push a loser as the Republican “favorite” as they have over the last few cycles. They know what they’re doing, and the narcissists on the right who are being pushed as “front runner” will believe that they can win and will do whatever they can to get the nomination, thus once again spelling defeat for Republicans.
As we all know, in politics, it’s all about the money.
And while a lot of us are scoffing at Caliph Baraq, he’s actually pulling in some huge $$ for Dems at these fund raisers he’s at several times a week.
