    Trucated title. Full title: Mitt Romney met privately with William Kristol, who is leading the effort to draft an independent candidate In spite of his insistence that he will not run, Mitt Romney is being courted this week by a leading conservative commentator to reconsider and jump into the volatile 2016 presidential race as an independent candidate. William Kristol, the longtime editor of the Weekly Standard magazine and a leading voice on the right, met privately with the 2012 nominee on Thursday afternoon to discuss the possibility of launching an independent bid, potentially with Romney as its standard-bearer. “He came...
  • What Next on Immigration? (If Obama gets away with his amnesty-by-decree, what can't he do?)

    National Review ^ | 06/21/2012 | MARK KRIKORIAN
    Mitt Romney will address the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) today, and will no doubt continue his evasions regarding the president’s unconstitutional DREAM decree, which grants amnesty to perhaps 1.4 million illegal immigrants without permission from Congress.One thing that Romney, and the GOP more generally, should consider is what’s next. If the president gets away with this usurpation of legislative authority, what other immigration measures might we expect? After all, Friday’s amnesty decree didn’t happen in a vacuum — it was the result of the administration’s getting away with a whole series of earlier, less...
  • Allen West ‘Dejected’ By Mitt Romney’s Lack Of A Position On Immigration

    On Monday, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) said that he was “dejected” after Mitt Romney’s avoided taking a strong stand on President Barack Obama’s directive enacting portions of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. “It goes back to what my mother taught me, ‘a man must stand for something, or else he’ll fall for anything,’” said West. Romney appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation on Sunday where he was asked repeatedly if he would repeal President Obama’s directive. Romney avoided taking a firm position on the matter during the interview, but indicated that he supports the underlying...

    Another day, another effort by an Obama supporter to portray Mitt Romney as weird. This time it's Brian Schweitzer, governor of Montana, in an interview with the Daily Beast. When Schweitzer "said Romney would have a 'tall order to position Hispanics to vote for him,' " reporter Ben Jacobs observed "that was mildly ironic since Mitt's father"--George W. Romney, who served as Michigan's governor from 1963-69 and sought the Republican presidential nomination in 1968--"was born in Mexico": Schweitzer replied that it is "kinda ironic given that his family came from a polygamy commune in Mexico, but then he'd have to...

    Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, a moderate Democrat, says that likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney may have trouble in the general election because his father was “born on a polygamy commune in Mexico,” the Daily Beast reports. Schweitzer told the news site that it would be a “tall order to position Hispanics to vote for” Romney, which he said was “kinda ironic” considering “his family came from a polygamy commune in Mexico.” However, Schweitzer continued, Romney is unlikely to “talk about his family coming from a polygamy commune in Mexico” because women are “not great fans of polygamy, 86 percent were...
  • Why aren't there any Romney ballot eligibility challenges?

    Everybody here, myself included, is desperate that Romney not be the Republican candidate for president. I suggest that the most cost-effective way of accomplishing that would be to bring Natural Born Citizen ballot eligibility suits against him in a few states, and try to get a few rulings in our favor before the RNC convention. I have read that there is no evidence that Romney's father was naturalized before Romney's birth. If he is found to be ineligible anywhere before the convention, his delegates won't matter. Worst case there would be a brokered convention. Why isn't anyone trying this? Lack...

    Romney Plays His Immigrant Card, but Was It Really a Joker? Massachusetts politicians are such hypocrites that they just can't help themselves when it comes to having it both ways. Contrary to Democrat Party elite mythology John Kerry's most serious political wound did not come about by Swiftboating, but was self-inflicted. The poster boy for political hypocrisy will be forever remembered for saying," I voted for it before I voted against it." Mitt Romney is as slick as they come and he is well programmed by his handlers. He did not directly say that his father was an immigrant in...

    World Net Daily ^ | January 16, 2012 | Jerome R. Corsi
    In 1968, when he decided to run for president, the only serious debate at the time was whether George W. Romney was a natural-born citizen under Article 2, Section 1, not whether or not he was a U.S. citizen. Mitt Romney, then, was born on March 12, 1947, in Detroit, Mich., to two U.S. citizen parents – George W. Romney and Lenore Emily LaFount; LaFount was a U.S. citizen, born on Nov. 9, 1908, in Logan, Utah. Interestingly, LaFount, even though she was a U.S. citizen under the 14th Amendment because she was born in the United States and considered...

    He might look and sound like an Anglo-American, but Mitt Romney could make a real run at being the first Latino president. And it wouldn't be just in the sense that Toni Morrison called Bill Clinton the "first black president" or Latinos and even Muslims hoped Texas Gov. George W. Bush, apparently sympathetic to their issues, might be their honorary "first" when he got to the White House. As recapped this week on NBC's Rock Center, Romney's great-grandfather settled in a Mormon colony in Mexico in 1885. About three dozen Romneys still live in the northern state of Chihuahua, holding...

    Caveat Suffragator – Let the voter beware.- By: Larry Walker, Jr. -When measuring the top GOP contenders in terms of eligibility under the U.S. Constitution, if I had to choose between the two, I have to admit that I am more inclined towards Gingrich than Romney. Like Mitt Romney, I too was born in Detroit, Michigan, but that’s where the similarities end. My parents and grandparents were all born in the State of Georgia, while Romney’s father was born in Mexico.In contrast, Gingrich’s parents and grandparents, like himself, were all born in the State of Pennsylvania. So when it comes...

    The claim is consistently being made that the first print of Romney's book stated something to the effect of the mandate being good for the entire country and then the 2nd print had it removed. Does anyone have excerpts, page numbers, etc. so we can throw it in Romney's face? This seems like a no-brainer and the one candidate consistently making the claim (Perry) isn't going out of his way to prove it.

    Hot Air ^ | DECEMBER 5, 2011 | TINA KORBE
    Via Mediaite. He did the right thing but, Mitt being Mitt, I can’t help wondering what the political calculus was behind it. Remember, he’s not above pandering to Trump. He met with him at his office a few months ago while taking care not to be caught on camera doing so, natch. Skipping the debate, I take it, is designed to show undecideds that he’s more presidential (and therefore electable?) than Newt and Perry, and maybe to signal that he’s more willing than people assume to take a political risk. Expect a “Sistah Souljah” reference or two in the coverage...

    NPR ^ | Ari Shaprio
    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has been unofficially running for president for the better part of five years, and in that time, he has been asked about immigration over and over again. Now some of his rivals are arguing that his answers to the question have been inconsistent. And the issue blew up last week at a CNN debate on national security. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said someone who has lived peacefully in the United States for many years with a family, a community and a job should have an opportunity to become a legal permanent resident. Mitt Romney...

    After tonght's debate, Mitt Romney's campaign clearly saw an opening to go after a surging Newt Gingrich, after he argued for considering a path to citizenship for immigrants who had originally come to this country illegally 25 years ago, but had spent decades integrating themselves in a community. “Newt Gingrich supported the 1986 amnesty act, and even though he conceded that was a mistake, he said that he was willing to repeat that mistake, by extending amnesty to immigrants who are illegally in the country today," Romney adviser and spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom said in the spin room following the AEI/Heritage...

    http://apnews.myway.com ^ | Nov.11, 2001 | By CHARLES BABINGTON and THOMAS BEAUMONT
    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is preparing for a higher profile in Iowa, where he possibly could land a knockout punch if two top rivals don't quickly fix their campaign problems and back-of-the-pack contenders such as Newt Gingrich [and Herman Cain who is currently leading in the pols] don't move quickly to energize voters. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, recently recorded a TV campaign ad at a sheet-metal plant in Dubuque, in eastern Iowa. It's not shocking that he would prepare such ads. But every Romney step in Iowa intrigues GOP activists. After a crushingly disappointing loss there in 2008,...

    The Hill ^ | November 08, 2011 | unsigned
    There are two, primary things that have fueled Mitt Romney's campaign -- his image as an economic guru and the idea that he's the most electable of the Republican nominees. But there are joint arguments that call the latter into question. First, there's the theoretical argument -- made today by Red State's Erick Erickson in a blistering, bruising post -- which claims that Romney is a certain loser against Barack Obama. Mitt Romney, on the other hand, is a man devoid of any principles other than getting himself elected. As much as the American public does not like Barack...

    CSM ^ | 10/26/11 | David Grant
    Rick Perry wants Mitt Romney to cough up his form 1040s (that’s the US individual tax return document). The Romney camp demurred, saying they would consider doing so next year. (Remarkably, Romney has NEVER released, even during his governorship of Massachusetts.) Why won’t Romney do it? Speculation, from liberal group ThinkProgress and others, is that Romney pays a way lower tax rate than many Americans because of his extensive financial investments, from which income is typically taxed below that of regular income. One left-leaning analyst speculates Romney paid an effective tax rate as low as 14 percent on his $6.6...

    Washington Post ^ | October 23, 2011 | Chris Cillizza
    Winning in politics isn’t everything, it’s the only thing. But how important a factor electability should be in a voter’s calculation remains very much in the eye of the beholder, leading to an active debate within the parties about who has the best chance to win next November — and how much it should matter. That fight is played out every four years as the two parties pick their presidential nominees. The party establishment — and many members of the media — tend to focus heavily on electability while the party’s activist base prizes ideological alignment. “Electability usually doesn’t matter...

    St. Petersburg Times ^ | October 20, 2011 | Alex Leary
    Unable to prevent Barack Obama from becoming president, rigid followers of the Constitution have turned their attention to another young, charismatic politician many think could one day occupy the White House. The birthers are calling for U.S.Sen. Marco Rubio, the budding Republican star from Florida. "It's nothing to do with him personally. But you can't change the rules because you like a certain person. Then you have no rules," said New Jersey lawyer Mario Apuzzo. Forget about allegedly Photoshopped birth certificates; the activists are not challenging whether Rubio was born in Miami. Rather, they say Rubio is ineligible under Article...

    Okay, the creepiness is overwhelming. Mitt Romney strikes me as the guy who wants to be president so bad that his ambition overrides his intellect. During last night's debate it was the cheap shot fired at Perry "well you've had a couple of bad debates" and Romney's hand resting atop Perry's shoulder. But if you've followed all the debates as I have you will notice a repeat offender. There is simply no graciousness to the man. And I'm an avowed Palinista.
