  • Hal Boyd: Gary Johnson says Mitt Romney would be 'guaranteed' a spot in his administration

    08/22/2016 7:40:28 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 27 replies
    On Friday, former Gov. Gary Johnson offered a guarantee. “If Mitt Romney wants to be a part of the administration, that would be a guarantee.” The comments came at Friday’s joint Deseret News-KSL editorial board meeting with Johnson and Bill Weld. I asked Johnson what role, if any, Romney might play in a Johnson-Weld administration. Although the Libertarian nominee seemed to doubt whether Romney would really be interested, he said the former Republican presidential nominee would be free to, in essence, choose his own adventure. “I think [the position] would be for Mitt Romney to decide … and I say...

    One of Mitt Romney’s original national finance committee chairs says he is voting for Hillary Clinton rather than Donald Trump. “I have decided to endorse and support Hillary Clinton for president, even though everybody else I will vote for this November will be a real Republican,” David Nierenberg wrote in a Friday op-ed for CNBC. “Hillary Clinton knows her stuff,” he added of the Democratic presidential nominee. "She is emotionally mature and centered. She respects and enjoys working with people from all backgrounds. “She has the diplomatic skills needed to break the gridlock in Washington and lead our country well....

    Although he withheld his support from Donald Trump throughout the primary, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney admitted Trump could win the Nov. 8 general election and become the 45th U.S. president. “You have to give Donald Trump credit, he was able to bring a rhetoric and a style that he had perfected over his career to the political sphere and connect with people and become the nominee. Despite the fact that I and a lot of other people thought he would not be an ideal nominee, he is. At this stage, it’s rougher going, but I can’t predict what’s gonna...

    Mitt Romney still can’t see himself voting for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. However, he can’t bring himself to vote for the Democratic counterpart, Hillary Clinton, either. But the 2012 GOP nominee has a solution: putting his own wife’s name on the ballot. “It’s a matter of personal conscience,” Romney told CBS News’ John Dickerson Wednesday at the Aspen Ideas Festival. “I can’t vote for either of those two people.” Romney explained that he simply cannot get behind Trump’s divisive character. “Our nominee is saying, ‘Hey look it’s these people here. It’s these Mexicans coming across the border... it’s...

    Mitt Romney blasted the Republican Party on Saturday for not doing more to stop presumptive nominee Donald Trump, saying that the prospects for the party are bleak. During a discussion in Park City, Utah, where Romney is hosting his annual conservative summit, the 2012 presidential nominee singled out Trump’s former rivals Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio), the last two candidates to drop out of the race against Trump. "Ted Cruz was basically praising Donald Trump through the whole process," Romney told discussion host and CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer. And Kasich “was in well after the time...

    Boston Globe ^ | March 29, 2016 | Eric Levenson
    Mitt Romney's reemergence this election cycle as a harsh critic of Donald Trump has been crippling for his favorability among Republican voters, a new poll shows. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, is seen as favorable by just 28 percent of Republican primary voters, according to a Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday. A startling 62 percent of Republican primary voters view him unfavorably, the poll found, and 10 percent said they were not sure. That net favorability of minus-34 percentage points is a dramatic drop from polling conducted prior to 2016. In January 2015, for example, Romney was seen...

But this time around, it is Donald Trump he is facing and not Jane Swift. Remember Jane Swift? She was the 36-year-old lieutenant governor, a fellow Republican, who became acting governor in 2001 when incumbent Gov. Paul Cellucci resigned to become U.S. ambassador to Canada

    Mitt Romney will campaign with John Kasich Monday at two stops in Ohio, NBC News has learned from a source familiar with the plans. Romney is not expected to endorse the Ohio governor during the campaign swing, the source said, but it will be the first time Romney has campaigned on behalf of a Republican candidate this cycle. It's a significant move for the former Republican nominee, who previously recorded campaign telephone "robocalls" for Kasich as well as Marco Rubio. Earlier this month, at a speech in Utah, Romney lambasted frontrunner Donald Trump as a "fraud" and warned of the...

The two, who speak monthly, aim to convince the wealthy contributors bankrolling various candidates to work together to avoid the kind of primary election chaos that Romney believes laid the seeds for his defeat in 2012. The former Massachusetts governor is also considering endorsing a candidate to achieve his goal.

But Priebus reportedly said that the problems ran deeper than the structure of the primaries, noting Romney’s widely reported comment that “47...

A new documentary, "Mitt," Greg Whiteley's film of Mitt Romney and his family during his 2008 and 2012 presidential bids, released on Netflix on Friday, sheds more light on that bizarre incident. Rove's famous hissy-fit took place when the network called the state of Ohio for Obama, putting the president over the 270 electoral votes needed to win reelection. Rove argued that Fox's analysts had acted prematurely.

    ...what the voters are craving in the debates and on the stump is someone who can look liberals squarely in the eye and tell them why we are right and they are wrong. The American conservative base has had to put up with being called stupid, racist, greedy and unfair for decades by not only the Democrats but the vast majority of the media. The pent up frustration of these decades is magnified by the fact that George H. W. Bush, Bob Dole, George W. Bush and John McCain would not or perhaps could not confront this. In fact, rare...

    “Vote like your lady parts depend on it” — said a slogan posted for a time on Barack Obama’s campaign website. Do women really vote with their “lady parts?” A new study reported on — and then pulled from — CNN’s website claims that “during the fertile time of the month, when levels of the hormone estrogen are high, single women appeared more likely to vote for Obama and committed women appeared more likely to vote for Romney, by a margin of at least 20 percent.” One of the researchers, Kristina Durante of the University of Texas, San Antonio, theorizes...

    If anyone still doubts the Gallup Poll -- and common sense -- showing that Mitt Romney is way ahead in the polls, all they had to do was watch the third presidential debate to have their minds changed. Romney put the game into the "four corners" stall, running out the clock while turning away numerous chances for easy slam-dunks and taking care not to stop the clock. Barack Obama, meanwhile, was pressing, slashing, and committing all kinds of fouls. Referee Bob Schieffer, not wanting to share in Candy Crowley's sordid legacy, let the players play. That's the good news. The...

    MITT KILLS (WITH ADD-ONS FROM JOHN AND PAUL) Governor Romney spoke tonight at the annual Alfred E. Smith Dinner, followed by President Obama. I thought Obama was good, but Mitt was great. He had excellent material and the audience was incredibly receptive. He is feeling it (and Obama is feeling the heat). As the Right Scoop has it, Romney “delivered line after line, mostly about the president. In fact he landed some pretty hard blows on the president, namely one where in using the Sesame Street reference he said that President Obama’s remarks ‘are brought to you by the letter...

    I'm sick of seeing the posts on FaceBook and elsewhere of the Ron Paul people taking their votes and going home. What? This will help America get her house in order? How many of these kooks will it take before Romney loses real support he needs to put him over the top? The main reason people want Ron Paul is so he can take on the Fed and fiscal issues. Mitt, give him his chance. Sew up the remaining wounds from the primary (Paul Ryan was a great salve to conservatives) and announce the intention to make Ron Paul Secretary...
