REPORT: Mitt Romney Is Definitely Looking At 2016

Two-time presidential contender Mitt Romney is apparently looking seriously at making a third White House bid in 2016.

Romney, who has repeatedly insisted he will not run, has kept his inner circle intact and regularly discusses national politics with them, according to a Washington Examiner column by Byron York published Wednesday night.

The article stressed the possibility of Romney ultimately declining to run, but sources around him reportedly have the strong sense that Romney is keeping the door open. What's more, that same inner circle really wants him to run again.

"Virtually the entire advisory group that surrounded Mitt in 2012 are eager for him to run, almost to a man and a woman," one "plugged-in member of Romneyland" told the Examiner.

13. Will Warm & Engaging Mitt also be attempting the run?

Along with I'm Not A Scientist Mitt, Environmentalist Mitt and End Times Mitt?

Could get crowded in there . . . .

3. I don't understand why...

I'd have to do some googling but I wonder how many times in the past someone has run 3 times?

Clearly it happened see Roosevelt... But to run and loose 2 times and then run again I think is different.

Also would you really only count the times the candidate actually got the nomination? Because then 2008 doesn't really count...

8. I think if you count primaries, there are more.

 

Dewey, for one.

Dewey sought the 1940 Republican presidential nomination.
Dewey was the frontrunner for the 1944 Republican nomination.
Dewey was the Republican candidate in the 1948 presidential election.

4. Looks like he is getting ready to give prostate exams, looking for stray nickels he might have

 

missed when shutting down a company, stealing pensions, and putting people out of work.
Would probably list it as a benefit and charge for it.

5. Byron York...now of the Washington Examiner?

They should call him Limbo Man--as in "How low can you GO?"

It wouldn't surprise me if Mitt ASKED him to plant this story to see if the pot couldn't be stirred a bit. Perhaps Mitt wants to smoke old Jeb outta his hole. I think Jeb would be nuts to run--between his horrible children and his tax duty-dodging wife who spends more time in Mexico than she does in USA, he knows he'd be raked over the coals. He has NOT been vetted. Then again, I think no one likes Mitt either. And they like Queen Annie and Rafalca even less!

9. Is Queen Ann still trying to make that White Horse Prophecy a reality? Ha ha

Sorry, Oh So Entitled Ones, We the People DESPISE you guys, so please toddle on back to your La Jolla McMansion & ride up & down in your car elevator. Psssssssst, Queen Ann, dear, it will NEVER be "your turn." I still chuckle when I think of her in that Prom hair up-do on Election Night 2012--she was SO SURE that she was going to be the next FLOTUS. You could just tell by that party hair she was sporting. However, by the time The Mittster gave his concession speech, she looked pretty disheveled--sort of like my cat, Cranky Nigel, when he rolls around on the basement floor, LOL.

15. Even with Jeb, the current field is weak

The GOP would never let Rand Paul or Carnival Cruz be the gop nominee and so I can see Romney running again

Together they would have a serious chance at winning. At least that's what my magic eight ball told me.

Same type of personality, with the same level of ego.

Ooooh, the excitement is palpable.

27. "Vote for Taft now, you can vote for Bryan any time."

Romney is shaping up to be a modern William Jennings Bryan, without the common touch.
