With all due respect CJ, the biggest problem is not at the president level. Regardless who is President, there will still be gridlock in Washington. The senate is democratic lead and the congress is Tea party lead. How would he have handle Ted Cruz? The tea party already look at Romney as a R.I.N.O.
I think if Romney was president today, the civil war in the republican party would be on a much larger scale then it is now. At least right now both have one common enemy in Obama. But what happens when Romney wants to make a deal with the democrats that the tea party would not like?
Unless all that crap we are seeing now is just a show for the base
