    No way to know for sure, unless you have some sort of crystal ball or something...But, IMHO, he would have been leaps and bounds better than the punk in the White house now.

    I didn't think there was any difference between Obamney 1 and Obamney 2.

    Obama got Obamacare passed, but I don't believe for a second that Romney was suddenly going to work to repeal what was essentially what he did in Mass. But he said he would so he would get nominated. Drones? Yep, that'd continue. Corporate bailouts? You betcha. Basically on the real issues there was no real difference between the two.

    Jeb is out promoting a book. The book deals with his personal philosophy and underlines how he would deal with different problems facing the nation.

    If you want to run for higher office
    step 1. Write a book that deals with your personal philosophy and underlines how you would deal with different problems facing the nation. check
    step 2. Get on all the TV shows you can promoting said book and thus promoting yourself as a fix it guy ( check)

    If I was to guess I would say he plans to run in 2016. It would be ludicrous to announce those intentions now. Lots can happen between now and then. He has to wait, to do anything else would cause people to question his potential as a leader. In addition it would put a target on him way too early, both within and without the GOP.

    Romney was likely the most educated man to ever run for President - with both a law degree and business degree from Harvard. Didn't hear much about that in the election.

    I really hope it isn't Jeb Bush. And if H.Clinton v. J. Bush it will just be sickening.

    Except, that in Romney's favor, I didn't get a sense of the character issues that Obama has. That says alot.

    Man, if that is the case it would be the first time in my voting life I would seriously consider NOT voting.

    There would have been no sequester under President Romney. There would have been leadership and targeted cuts.

    Doubt it. Any bill would still have to pass the Senate before it gets to the President's desk. Unless you also had a GOP Senate (which was almost impossible last election. Technically could have happened, but very difficult). So you'd still have to have Dems and Reps compromising which is the same problem we're having now.
