  • Romney: My Family Wants Me to Jump In the Race (Because they hate America and want Hillary to win)

    Last year, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney was serious about making one last bid for the White House. Only after realizing that Jeb Bush had already secured pledges from most of the top Republican donors did he decide to sit out the 2016 election. Of course, as it turned out, Bush even with a reported $100 million war chest could barely make a blip on the electoral radar. In the year of Donald Trump, the former Florida governor was just another victim. Since then, Romney has become one of Trumps biggest and most outspoken detractors. When the primary...

    Its hidden there in plain sight, even if it hasnt happened since the election of 1825: The people will not pick the next president, Congress will. We wrote about this last week on Medium, and now the story is beginning to flesh out. Politico reports that leading conservatives will meet on Thursday to plot out a third-party spoiler plan to beat presumed nominee Donald Trump. With Marco Rubio suspending his campaign after losing the Florida primary and it is beginning to appear he will reverse his previous words to support a nominee Trump. Because there will be a third party...

    Mitt Romney recorded robocalls for Sen. Marco Rubio's presidential campaign that are going out in all four states voting on Tuesday, CNN has confirmed. It's part of an escalating effort by Romney to block Donald Trump from securing the Republican presidential nomination. First reported by The New York Times, the robocalls do not represent an outright endorsement of Rubio, and a spokesperson for Romney indicated the 2008 GOP nominee would be willing to help Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich as well. "Gov. Romney has offered and is glad to help Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. Ted Cruz, and Gov....

    Now thats a screaming case of the pot calling the kettle black if there ever was one. Mitt Romney has lashed out at The Donald for being a phony and fraud, but consider this. During his 16-years at Bain Capital, fully one-fourth or $600 million of the firms cumulative $2.5 billion of profits were scalped from companies which went bankrupt soon after Mitt and his partners got out of town with the loot. No wonder the American voters did not believe him when he claimed to be the job creator! Yes, the GOP establishments putative jobs candidate from 2012 was...

    During a phoned-in appearance on Fox News Wednesday afternoon, 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney dropped a big ole’ a dirty bomb on Donald Trump. Speaking to Neil Cavuto, Romney said, without any evidence, that he has “good reason to believe that there’s a bombshell in Donald Trump’s taxes.” As someone who suffered through every moment of Romney’s feckless presidential campaign, the first thing I thought to myself was “Where the hell was this killer when we needed him most?” Listen, I have no issue with Romney dropping a dirty bomb, especially on a Donald Trump who is the master...

    Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney stated that Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump, Texas Senator Sen. Ted Cruz(R-TX), and Florida Senator Sen. Marco Rubio(R-FL) ought to release their taxes for “the last two years that have already been filed” and that there’s “good reason to believe that there’s a bombshell in Donald Trump’s taxes” on Wednesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel. Romney began by saying that both Trump and Democratic candidate Senator Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) were connecting with voters who were upset with the Washington, which hasn’t made progress. He added, “I think there’s...

    Rumors are starting to fly that Republican elites are considering adding Mitt Romney to the Republican primary in a last-minute attempt to destabilize the popularity of non-traditional candidates Donald Trump and Ben Carson, The Washington Post reported. But this seems to be mostly rumor and speculation from his friends, since Romney himself has said he won’t run again and no one has gone on record yet with specific plans to draft him.

    Why isnt Mitt Romney president? Because he thinks like this. Over at Breitbart was this headline: MITT ROMNEY: DEMISE OF LEGACY MEDIA EMPOWERING CONSERVATIVE INSURGENTS, PREVENTING MORE COLLABORATIVE ACTION The story reads, in part, like this: Failed GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney lamented that the demise of traditional media is empowering Republican insurgents and preventing establishment Republicans from compromising more with Democrats. As the Republican establishment is trying convince Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) to run for House Speaker, Romney told David Axelrod on a recent The Axe Files podcast that the extremes within our respective parties are having a louder...

    After Mitt Romney rips Ted Cruz on Twitter, the Tea Partyer goes for a full-throated attack “If this deal is consummated, it will make the Obama administration the world’s leading financier of radical Islamic terrorism,” Texas Senator and Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz said this week of the multinational nuclear agreement with Iran. “Billions of dollars under control of this administration will flow into the hands of jihadists who will use that money to murder Americans, to murder Israelis, to murder Europeans,” Cruz explained to a group of supporters. Cruz, apparently competing for the title of Republican presidential candidate who...

    Using This One Weird Trick! It seems as if everybodys down on the idea of Mitt Romney running for president again. Even establishment Republicans who arent part of the vast Bush claque seem to be hostile. President Obamas aides mocked Romneys interest in income inequality, per Politico: (SNIP) Its simply never going to be believable to go from car elevators, off-shore accounts and his famous 47 percent comment to the populist income equality warrior. (SNIP) After all, theres one obvious, simple move Romney could make to turn the mockery around, jujutsu style, in a way that would give him...

    As part of the growing GOP effort to save Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS), Mitt Romney is now making robocalls on the incumbent senator's behalf. The Associated Press reported that Romney's recorded call would reach 400,000 Kansas residents this week. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee calls Roberts, who faces a stiff re-election challenge from independent candidate Greg Orman after Democratic nominee Chad Taylor dropped out of the race last week, a trusted conservative and says that he is needed to block the Democratic agenda, according to the AP.

    Can we really call it news if its something that everyone already knows? Imagine if all the tea-party energy of the past five years ends up in another Bush coronation in 2016. I dont know if the party would fracture. But it should. In private conversations that are now seeping into public view, some of them are signaling to Mr. Christies camp that, should Mr. Bush enter the race, their first loyalty would be to him, not to Mr. Christie, according to interviews with more than two dozen of them The family name, [Barry Wynn] said, remains a powerful draw....

    SALT LAKE CITY Former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney said before giving a speech at the University of Utah Wednesday that shutting down the government is the wrong way to oppose the nation's new health care law. Romney repeated his concerns about the strategy against the Affordable Care Act employed by some Republicans in Congress, including Utah Sen. Mike Lee, that led to the shutdown of the federal government on Tuesday. "My view is that Republicans, elected Republicans, almost universally agree that Obamacare is problematic for the economy and for the American family," he said in response to a...

    Just before the Christmas break the Boston Globe published a lengthy postmortem on Mitt Romneys massive failure as a presidential candidate. Between this, and the constant hand-wringing by Geniuses of the GOP, I think we have beaten this dead horse to a pulp, but there was one thing that came out of this article that has me as angry as I have ever been over a politician. Before we get to that, lets step back in time to 2008. Like 2012, the Republican Party didnt exactly put forth an all-star field of candidates for voters to choose from. In the...

    Sounds like fun already ... the Tampa Bay Times released the names of some of the speakers slated for the RNC convention in Tampa later this month, and it looks to be a promising lineup. The Times reported that, as of now, it's unclear where these speakers are slotted, and the rest of the lineup--including the keynote speaker--remains unknown. Names so far include conservative powerhouses New Mexico Gov. Susanna Martinez and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Florida Gov. Rick Scott is also speaking. Here's a portion of the Times report: Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Sen. John McCain and former Secretary...

    In a campaign in which candidate gaffes have helped fuel a relentless barrage of attack ads on both sides, President Obama has been far quicker than Republican challenger Mitt Romney to jump to his own defense. Obama's rapid-response effort -- in which any criticism of the candidate is swiftly rebutted in the media -- has so far proven far more reliable and effective than Romney's and that's starting to concern some Republicans. Romney had been scoring points against Obama by mocking the president's claim to business owners that "you didn't build that." So the president responded with an ad of...

    In a sign that Mitt Romney's campaign team plans to adjust following growing criticism from fellow Republicans, CBS News has learned that Romney campaign senior adviser Kevin Madden will soon be taking on a larger and more visible role within the campaign. Sources tell CBS News that Madden will be spending more time on the road with Romney and is likely to become a more public presence as a TV spokesperson for the candidate. He will hit the road with Romney next week, following Romney's New Hampshire vacation. This move to make Madden a more public face of the campaign...

    Kevin Madden, a Republican communications expert with long ties to Mitt Romney, will become a more frequent and visible spokesman for the presidential campaign, a source close to the decision said on Friday. The increased responsibilities for Mr. Madden came in the wake of criticism from nervous Republicans about Mr. Romneys campaign team. The Wall Street Journal said in an editorial that the campaign looks confused in addition to being politically dumb.
