    P.S. = that's my last comment on Jeb Bush so I don't get accused of hijacking the thread.

    because it would be interesting to see your potential reaction to Jeb bush dropping out of contention because something like rick perry's oops moment or Romany's comment about the 47% made him unpalatable to voters

    I doubt that will happen with Jeb Bush. After all, if what I believe to be true is true, Jeb has the best temperament, demeanor, experience, and background so he's the least likely to make one of those stupid moves. Perry was totally unprepared and lazy, thus his goof and Romney's wasn't a goof, it was the truth that the media exploited to save Obama.

    But we'll see. I think the media will like the story of another Bush so they won't try to destroy it - a Bush/Clinton campaign is a ratings goldmine for them. And nobody in the media likes Hillary Clinton, so Bush won't suffer from a media sabotage.

    What do you think of his run? As the article states he is gearing up for a run.
    Who would be his VP?
    While he may not win the Republican Presidential nomination with his base of support hcould end up as the VP for whoever does.

    Romney moves to reassemble campaign apparatus for 2016 - The Washington Post
    Mitt Romney is moving quickly to reassemble his national political network, spending the weekend and Monday calling former aides, donors and other supporters — as well as onetime foes such as Newt Gingrich.

    Romney’s message was that he is serious about making a 2016 presidential bid. He told one senior Republican he “almost certainly will” run in what would be his third campaign for the White House, this person said.
    Wait. After the 2012 campaign, he's regathering the same people????? LOLOLOL. That was one of the worst campaigns in recent memory.

    Romney's 47% comment wasn't a goof? It was a disaster. To Romney, all who are not net taxpayers are completely dependent on the government, which is ludicrously false.

    Oh wait.....first would we need to see if that is the proper thing to do. Do you think any candidate that is going to run for the Presidency needs to have his people who supported them and can help him in different states with campaign appearances and debate. Would need to be contacted so the candidate knows what party members from different states will be there to support him? Set up a National Apparatus huh....yeah like thats not what a Presidential Candidate would do, huh?

    Would it cost a candidate more money to vette and hire new people? Yeah one can see why nearly all candidates do this. Imagine that!

    Now while Romney ran a bad campaign.....it was no where as bad as Hillarys campaign was.. Thinking she was the Shoe in and then getting trounced by BO peep. Who was a nobody at the time. Something that a good majority just thought was hilarious. Now that was some real funny ****. LOLOLOL!!!!!

    I'm actually surprised by this, but then again, I'm not. That probably doesn't make sense....

    I think the reaction here in New Hampshire will be very telling. I also know a lot of people here who didn't vote for him in the general election who regret that decision deeply and I wonder if they would vote for him this time around.

    I don't think Romney ran a bad campaign at all. Hillary did. Huntsman did. Romney, no.

    Mitt Romney is moving quickly to reassemble his national political network, spending the weekend and Monday calling former aides, donors and other supporters — as well as onetime foes such as Newt Gingrich.

    Romney’s message was that he is serious about making a 2016 presidential bid. He told one senior Republican he “almost certainly will” run in what would be his third campaign for the White House, this person said.
    Romney lost Florida by 74,000 vote, 29 EV. Ohio by 166,000, 18 EV and Virginia by 145,000 votes, 13 EV. These three states were the only ones he lost by less than 5 percent of the vote. Romney also won North Carolina by 92,000 votes, 15 EV. Even if Romney kept North Carolina and added the other three, his electoral vote total would stand at 266, still 4 shy of winning. Obama won Florida by 0.88%, Ohio by 2.98% and Virginia by 3.87% of the vote. Romney won North Carolina by 2.04%.

    Other not so close races were which Romney won Nebraska 2nd congressional, Georgia, Arizona and Missouri:

    Colorado, 5.37%
    Pennsylvania, 5.39%
    New Hampshire, 5.58%
    Iowa, 5.81%
    Nevada, 6.68%
    Wisconsin, 6.94%
    Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District, 7.16%
    Minnesota, 7.69%
    Georgia, 7.82%
    Maine's 2nd Congressional District, 8.56%
    Arizona, 9.06%
    Missouri, 9.38%
    Michigan, 9.50%

    A Hillary vs. Romney matchup would probably mean that I end up voting for a third party candidate for the 6th time out of the last 7 presidential elections. Although Hillary would get more thought for my vote than Romney which I do not trust. Any candidate who changes his lifetime held political beliefs just to run for president can’t be trusted. He is also the father of Romneycare which begat Obamacare.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
