I agree with Ol' Snakeface 100%.

Romney will run (again).

I honestly think there is a better-than-decent chance that we'll see a faux "grassroots campaign" to draft Romney.

Romney will pretend to be reluctant (Pshaw, you want to nominate l'il ol meeeeee?), and act coy, then he will accept and then proceed to mess things up beyond the degree that anyone would ever think possible (see: every other election he's ever been involved in, except maybe that one in Massachusetts).

Didn't vote for him the first time, and won't vote for him next time, either. Nothing Mitt can do or say will persuade me to vote for him.

He will probably lose (again). But at least it'll preserve the idea that it's still his "turn", and the GOP can continue raking in the favors and perks of guiding the nomination toward the ones with the most cash to spread around and not the ones who can win or have the best ideas.

What better way to destroy the GOP than from within. Willard’s plan for years. The Democrats have no greater ally.

The guy managed to lose every single battle state in 2004 and guess what? The Republicans need to win every single battle ground state to win a presidential election given the state of the electoral college map.

Sadly; there appears to be MANY on FR who will welcome this event; one, more, time.
