Is Mitt running?-Mitt has editorial in Washington Post today on Islamic State and Obama

There was speculation last week about the GOP field being so weak that Romney may get into the race. Today in the Washington Post, Mitt has an editorial entitled Mitt Romney:

Mitt Romney: Obama must wage war on the Islamic State, not merely harass it

The last three paragraphs of this editorial are the type of BS that you would expect if Romney was thinking about getting into the race
The West must stop the insanity of welcoming hundreds of thousands of people from the Middle East without knowing who exactly they are. Women, children and the elderly, perhaps, but not thousands upon thousands of single young men.

Only America can lead this war, and that leadership means being willing to devote whatever resources are required to win — even boots on the ground. We have the best-equipped and most dedicated military for good reason. The president must stop trying to placate his political base by saying what he won’t do and tell Americans what he will do.

We must do what it takes.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2015/11/15/mitt-romney-obama-must-wage-war-on-the-islamic-state-not-merely-harass-it/ With Jeb! falling apart and the rest of the GOP field of clowns being pitiful, it appears that Mitt Romney may want to jump in.

1. Mitt is a proven loser! He might as well climb aboard their clown bus.

3. I have seen it more than once

 

that they are afraid of a trump wIn and are now courting Romney to run. How late can someone jump in? It makes sense 4 him to jump in late and avoid all of the debates and expense.

4. When Romney calls for "boots on the ground" I presume

that all his sons will make a quick run down to the army recruiting station and volunteer to be among the first to fight ISIS, "on the ground". Yep!

7. Absolutely

[sarcasm]Of course, because the problem with the republican primary run-off right now is that they simply don't have enough candidates.[/endsarcasm]

14. They just caled on Romney to beat the war drum, we must be made to give up not only our individual

rights including the simple and human necessity of a right to privacy we must give them all our money. The rich don't pay for the wars they create to protect their personally rewarding overseas investments. We must.

It is a return to the feudal system of Ole Europe, when the king wanted more money the peasants were stripped of even their food and the men sent off to kill other men, all so the ruler could expand his personal wealth or protect it from another lord. Once again and in the U.S.A., we are once mere pawns to be stripped of our wealth and basic human rights.

All this talk about social programs for the ordinary folks must be stopped with more war spending, more surrendering of our rights so they can protect us from attacks, yet they have failed.

They have spent a few trillion on this intelligence gathering operation and now want more spending, and even that is not enough they must have bombs and ships and useless jeeps and more spending and more planes and ships to rot in the desert.

16. Mitt Romney was on the today show and denied running

Mitt was on the Today Show attacking President Obama. Romney denies that he is running but you get a feeling that he is standing by. Romney was asked who was better on ISIS-Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump and he did not say that Trump could handle ISIS. When asked about Trump and Carson, Romney stated that there were two or three people in the GOP field who could get the nomination and win a general election who could deal with ISIS.

Romney dissed Trump and we can expect Trump to get nasty

17. Romney isn't going to run.

He's still bitter about 2012 though and will take any opportunity he has to bash Obama.
