Skip to comments.Romney 2016 is for real

Is Mitt Romney, who ran for the Republican presidential nomination and lost in 2008, ran again and won the nomination but lost the general election in 2012, really thinking about running yet again for president in 2016? Many Republicans have simply assumed not. Romney has seemed to discourage such talk in media appearances, and there has been a general belief that after losing as the party's nominee, the 67 year-old Romney would return to private life for good.
That belief is wrong. Romney is talking with advisers, consulting with his family, keeping a close eye on the emerging '16 Republican field, and carefully weighing the pluses and minuses of another run. That doesn't mean he will decide to do it, but it does mean that Mitt 2016 is a real possibility.

Oh my excitement barometer just moved - wait, no it didn’t.
Good. This will give me the chance to not vote for him in the primaries again.
he might run. but he will loose.
He’ll lose, too.
I am voting for Sarah!
Good. Here’s hoping that the primary candidates are Romney, Huckabee, Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz.
Let the RINOs split their votes during the primaries this time around.
Wow, progressive party R or progressive party D. Sure is nice to vote these days. My cup overflows with hope and change...
I believe last time around, Sarah bowed out because she had young kids, but also because she was contemplating a run against Romney and decided she might end up on the losing end of that contest, frandly because of GOP duplicity.
However I believe that has changed. Romney got the nomination last time around, AND HE LOST.
It is time for someone new. I believe it is time for Sarah Palin this time.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO’s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If it took him until recently to realize what a disaster the lyin’ king is then he is not astute enough to be in charge. He should have looked at FR about 7 1/2 years ago for some education on the subject. Aren’t there some Olympics or something coming up that he can manage?
I know it’s fashionable ‘round these parts to bash Romney, and I’ll admit I did (begrudgingly) vote for him in 2012, but I do believe that if he’d won the floodgates for business would’ve opened. Big business continues to sit on billions, waiting for the right leader to come along before they’ll really invest. Obama ain’t that person.
Jeb or Romney means Hillary is president.
Look, if you want to hold open ANY possibility of running in 2016, you’ve got to be laying groundwork now. There’s probably dozens of politicians “looking at 2016”, setting up pre-campaigns, etc., who won’t even file but are just surveying the landscape and leaving themselves the option of jumping in without being prohibitively behind.
Guess we’d better prepare for President Hillary then.
Let me see about this,
There you go, he can run but with the same results.
Could be interesting to see which GOPe knocks the others.
That might give the conservatives an opening, if they can center on one or two strong electable major conservative contenders instead of the half-to-a-dozen pseudo-conservative also-rans.
If that is the case, then Romney needs to make a point of saying he is going to support the return of American businesses.
Say it clearly, up front, and make it his position. Heck I’ll support him again if he takes a strong position on American jobs.
But that is not what he did. He just lolled and gagged, and coasted to defeat.
That is not very presidential.
No, he will tighten up the race.
