    Mitt Romney is working with an unlikely collaborator — Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire casino mogul who bankrolled Newt Gingrich’s 2012 campaign — in the hopes of ensuring that the GOP primary produces a mainstream conservative without any of the mayhem that marked his own race. 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.

    Ever since Mitt Romney’s loss to President Obama in 2012, it has become a mantra in the Republican Party that on foreign policy especially, “Romney was right.” In a stuffy mountain lodge here Friday night, Romney joined the chorus. Dusting off a page from his management consulting playbook, the former Republican nominee delivered a speech by PowerPoint to more than 200 corporate CEOs and other attendees of his annual ideas festival about what he deemed (and titled his slides): “The Most Consequential Obama Foreign Policy Mistakes.”

    Mitt Romney, who earlier this year decided against a third presidential bid after briefly flirting with a run, will jump back into the national political scene next month when he hosts GOP presidential hopefuls and some of the party’s biggest donors in Utah. Romney’s 2015 E2 Summit will take place June 11-13 in Deer Valley, a ski resort east of Salt Lake City, according to an invitation obtained Thursday by The Washington Post. Confirmed speakers from the likely 2016 Republican field include Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney says he wasn’t leaving out former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush when he said in late January that one of the “next generation” of Republican leaders may well emerge as being better able to beat the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee. “No, no — I’m talking about the next political generation,” Mr. Romney said on NBC’s “Today” program. “I, along with a few other people, ran in the last contest and I was not successful, and my thought was we need a new face, someone not yet defined in the public’s mind....

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush appears poised for a presidential run and is currently leading the polls among potential Republican candidates for 2016, but the comments he made in 1994 during his first run for Florida’s highest office may come back to haunt him.The Associated Press reports that Bush described himself then as a “head-banging conservative” and used fiery rhetoric — such as claiming he would do “probably nothing” for African-Americans if he became governor — in his ultimately unsuccessful bid. Bush made that statement in response to a question on what he would for African-Americans if elected to office.“It’s time...

    Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus reportedly told a donor that he blamed 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign for the candidate’s poor showing at the polls. The New York Times reports that a donor met Priebus during an RNC fundraiser in New York and told the chairman that the GOP’s intense primary season didn’t give Romney the time to pivot back toward the center after primaries, where he needed to appeal to the party’s more conservative base. But Priebus reportedly said that the problems ran deeper than the structure of the primaries, noting Romney’s widely reported comment that “47...

You may be a fine man, but you are not going to be president, and you are not the answer for the Republicans in 2016. You could have/should have been both perhaps, but you blew it. Now, I hate to even think about the 2016 election with the 2014 mid terms still weeks away, but this nightmarish Groundhog Day idea of Romney 2016 just will not go away.

Though a determined Hewitt kept finding different ways to ask the same question, in the end the 2012 candidate stood by his claim, saying, "I had the chance of running. I didn’t win. Someone else has a better chance than I do." After Hewitt's relentless questioning, Romney did offer the host his "one in a million" chance of running: if all the other candidates got together and said, "Hey, we’ve decided we can’t do it, you...

The scene, which occurred during the heated 2008 GOP primary battle between Romney and his rising political adversary, Senator John McCain (R-AZ), occurs early on in the new Netflix documentary, Mitt. The film premieres on Netflix at 11 AM today and offers a rarely-seen look at the former Governor and his family as they trudge through two seemingly-endless presidential campaigns. Director Greg Whiteley was given great access to Romney during those campaigns, and he uses it to...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney offered a harsh critique of CNN debate moderator Candy Crowley’s interference in his second debate with President Obama in 2012. Crowley infamously butted in to an exchange between Romney and Obama regarding the Obama administration’s changing of the Benghazi talking points. Crowley’s assertion that Obama was right in the argument led to multiple rounds of applause in the studio audience — an agonizing moment that was featured prominently in the new behind-the-scenes Netflix documentary “MITT.” Romney addressed Crowley’s debate performance in an interview Monday with conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt. “Well, I don’t...

    On Election Night 2012, Democrats had more than the reelection of President Obama to celebrate. Karl Rove, the mastermind Republican strategist hated and feared by Democrats, had a meltdown live on Fox News. 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.

The film, "Mitt," is an extraordinarily intimate look at the former Massachusetts governor as he ran for president twice, in 2008 and 2012. Director Greg Whiteley had impressed Romney with his 2005 documentary "New York Doll," which brilliantly chronicled a broken-down rock musician's conversion to Mormonism, and for the new film, Romney gave Whiteley unprecedented freedom to record behind-the-scenes moments as the candidate and his family endured the trials of two presidential campaigns..... the old lack of confidence came out again...

    .....No, the real story is that three states held votes and nobody came. Almost nobody, that is. Consider that the total turnout for Missouri, Colorado, and Minnesota combined was barely over half of the turnout of South Carolina alone and -- worse yet -- barely over half the turnout for the same three states in 2008. Thus, after South Carolina's record-setting primary turnout, the Republican Party has now seen a total of five events in a row where turnout was down compared to 2008. This includes the three events from this week along with Nevada and Florida. Yes, something has...

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.

Having watched the stumbling, inept, ham-fisted campaigning of Mitt Romney the past few days, perhaps now you understand why. The comment Mitt made about not caring about the 47 percent of Americans who pay no federal income taxes and/or who are on the dole was one of the worst, most self-destructive comments I’ve ever heard from a politician. If — as I hope — Romney goes on to defeat President Barack Obama, it may be credited to what George Washington described as the “hand of...

    Mitt Sees the Emperor Without His Clothes. Will the Rest of America Listen? There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what ... there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing ... Mitt Romney In our relatively short 200+ year history, America has experienced a handful of watershed events. The Civil War was probably chief among them,...

    Pardon the delay, but this Time magazine interview with Obama for the September 10 edition has to be quoted. Time’s Michael Scherer only asked process questions about why the Republicans haven’t come along with Obama. But Scherer ended with “I wonder if you could point to a couple of other things in his record and things he has accomplished that you actually admire. “ Jaws should drop as Obama said he appreciates Romney’s commitment to participating in church, just as Obama.....does? He likes that Romney “walks the walk,” and no one questions if Obama does a lot more walking on...

    I first met Mitt Romney in 2005. I was very impressed. I described him in this magazine as "informal, conversational, enthusiastic and speedy." Mitt Romney? Yes, indeed. But then, we were talking about something he really believed in, or seemed to: his universal health care plan for Massachusetts, which included an individual mandate--an idea I'd admired since it was proposed by Stuart Butler of the Heritage Foundation in 1989.

    Are Mitt and the GOP Stuck on McStupid? Why is the arch-boob McCain befouling my TV Screen with his pathologically smirky face? This man has been conclusively demonstrated, and to have proven himself, to have been an idiot since the 1950's. The only improvement has been that he is no longer quite a permanently drunken idiot. But that is due to senility and other medical conditions that set in in some decades ago, not wisdom gained by experience. Those of us unfortunate to have known him before he was catapulted to fame by the NVA, i.e., those of us who...

    Several Olympic gold-medalists are praising Mitt Romney's handling of the 2002 Winter Olympics in a new ad released on Monday. The ad by the pro-Romney super-PAC Restore Our Future, titled "Olympics," features Olympic gold-medal winners Kristi Yamaguchi, Jimmy Shea and Derek Parra, and is set to air during the 2012 London Olympics. "As an athlete, you're training your whole life for that one moment at the Olympics ... Mitt Romney brought a huge sense of hope," says Yamaguchi in the ad.

    Suspicious that his live-in girlfriend was planning an affair, a Tennessee man confronted the woman after spotting a photo of an unknown guy on her Facebook page, according to a police report. Lowell Turpin, 40, “angrily demanded to know who the male was,” reported Anderson County Sheriff’s Department investigators. Crystal Gray, 38, “replied that it was a picture of Mitt Romney.”
