GOP wins in Mass., N.H. would raise Romney stock
Former Bay State governor Mitt Romneys high-profile campaign stops for Republicans Charlie Baker
and Scott Brown this week indicate the exploding popularity of the former presidential nominee
and GOP wins in those races could vault him to the top of the 2016 White House sweepstakes.
Hes been extremely well-received across the country and hes the only candidate with an instant
national network, said Saul Anuziz, former GOP chairman in Michigan.
He would definitely be a viable candidate.
A Brown victory over incumbent U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire,
home of the first-in-the-nation primary,
and a Baker win over Attorney General Martha Coakley in heavily liberal Massachusetts,
could signal broad support for another Romney presidential bid.
Romneys responses about a 2016 run have changed from absolutely not,
earlier this year to opening the door a crack, saying well see what happens
last month. But Kaufman said Romney is focused for now on the Nov. 4 elections.
The governor is the head of the Republican Party, and he takes that seriously, said Kaufman.
"Here we go."

The Praetorian press wants to nominate Romney for us so badly they can taste it.
... then it is time to work totally against the GOP.
Apparently pot is legal in the authors state...
I am not rooting for yet another Romney run, I actually like him. However, this cheerleading from his buddies in the press is getting annoying. Regardless, I hope the GOP wins in the NE.
“Gosh we’d sure be ascared if you ran Romney against us!”
“You can do anything jess’ don’ run Romney against us”
The MSM wants Mittens to run. They know Hillary would clobber him in November.
And the GOP establishment too, wants him to be their standard-bearer.
For God’s SAKE!!!!
He’s a loser and nobody wants another BUSH (except the Democrats)
Between Jeb and Mittens - pick your poison.
Both Rove picks, by the way for those who care.
No, the liberals want Romney to run because they know he's likely to enact more liberal policies and nominate more liberal judges than their whack-a-moles. The difference is that Romney would get these liberal policies passed through congress rather than by executive fiat.
Is there anyone who'd honestly believe that Romney wouldn't have 'fixed' ObamaCare by closing loop holes and clarifying language to pass judicial muster? That believes that Romney would have canned the sucker before it came into being, especially after RomneyCare in Massachusetts?
If you do, watch this video: Romney, in his own words, during the Republican Presidential Debates...
I don’t think Mitt Romney is a bad person, but he’s absolutely the wrong guy to put on a GOP ticket. Not when he’s already been clobbered once, and the cream of the younger GOP crop is coming into its own now. There are simply going to be better - and far more conservative - choices than Mitt Romney in 2016.
Now, I wouldn’t mind Mitt in a GOP administration. Put him at Treasury or Commerce. I think he’d be pretty good in either of those roles. But not in the WH.
Just my take.
No Romney, no Bush, and no donut eating slob
What nonsense. Republicans LOST in MA and NH and Romney rose. They’re just looking for an excuse to MAKE Romney rise...because their other losers aren’t getting any traction, so they say, “hey, let’s try the retread plan again like we did with McCain and Dewey! Sure to win!!”
This plan only worked with Nixon, and Romney’s no Nixon. Nixon actually wanted power, and went after democrats with relish and abandon. He didn’t expect power to just be handed to him because the other guy was worse. That’s Tom Dewey’s thinking.
I think Romney would be a good choice for secretary of commerce or even secretary of labor. He’d be a good ambassador to the court of St James. There are lots of jobs for Mitt. President isn’t one of them.
Sure, let’s make it a 3-fer for ole Mitt.
Nothing like turning a 2 time loser into a 3 time loser.
At what point do they get a clue that this just might not be a good idea?
Carpetbagger Romney ruined the Massachusetts economy,
and defecated on its Constitution.
IN that light, Romney would be a good ObamaCARE Czar,
Gay Marriage Czar, or even Polygamy Czar,
given his forcing of both upon all Americans.
Romney IMHO would be a good president. he has the pro capitalist business experience big time, he ran against the cancer of illegal immigration, he has maturity and executive experience, and I have no reason to believe he wouldn’t put together a solid administration of top personnel.
All that being said to infuriate many Freepers, I don’t at this point think Romney will get the nomination, or that he would win the election if nominated.
Then again if they nominate Warren instead of satanic Hilary, the GOP nominee may win no matter what. And Herr Hilary may just fall on her face anyway.
I’d rather see Cruz, Jindal has good executive experience. I just don’t know if they will get the nomination or can win the general.
Certainly if the GOP needs a Reagan like true conservative to win, Cruz is the man. But he also is untested nationally.
It is natural for some people to think that because Obama is such a disaster, Romney can run an “I told you so” campaign.
IF Romney had to be the nominee, a Romney / Cruz ticket certainly would be a good set up for Cruz to be president.
Brown is some 6 points behind and NH has made it very very easy for voter fraud to occur with same day registration.
People don't even have to live here to vote, all they have to do is sign an affidavit saying they are planning to move here. The affidavits are never followed up on.
And for Mass, well the Dem machine there is so strong that they will “count the votes over and over again till they come out right” to old time famous gangster.
So is incumbent Pat Roberts and Cochran in Mississippi.
Backing long-term incumbent deadwood when the public is manifestly sick of Congress. BRILLIANT. They should stop calling that old butter ball “the Mechanic” and call him “the Undertaker” instead.
