NY Mag: Fantasizing 2016 Plot Twist - Mitt Romney Saves the Day

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Chemisse (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

There's all types of banter, out and about, on Biden, Warren etc., etc. Not to be left behind in the guessing on who is doing what, the GOP gobble'gook is now all a flutter on if Mitt Romney will return to save the day (and GOP) from Trump'ick'ish. New York News & Politics has this OpEd with a picture of Willard Romney as superman (Robber Baron Elitus) - that is titled;

"People Beginning to Fantasize About 2016 Plot Twist in Which Mitt Romney Saves the Day"



[br]

NY Magazine on Politics reports that Trump's former guy thinks Mitt wants back in.... as remarked in the article;

Former Trump advisor Roger Stone went on CNN this weekend and said that he heard that Romney was thinking of getting into the race and that someone definitely needed to get Jeb Bush a cheeseburger because his hunger was clearly making him boring. Bill Kristol wrote on Saturday, "Shouldn't Republicans be open to doing what Democrats are now considering? That is: Welcoming into the race, even drafting into the race if need be, one or two new and potentially superior candidates?" (He offered Supreme Court justice Samuel Alito as an option, however, not Romney.)

[br]

As reported in the CNN video (here) Stone remarks that the New York Times reporter corroborates the notion that Mitt is considering options.

Moi is foaming at the mouth about this - for more reasons than one - don't know about you - but I REALLY want Mitt.

Just sayin......

1. I can't see Romney winning the GOP nomination in 2016

 

The GOP base feels that it got screwed up with Dole, McCain, Romney. Of Romney runs again-which I think he will - in October, won't the base be upset?

2. Well, since Biden is supposed to save the (D)s. Why not Cheney?

 

Oh, right. Darth Vader without the charm. I almost forgot.

4. I can just hear what Trump would say if Mitten's gets into the GOP race:

"He's a loser! Why would anybody want to vote for that loser?"
