Romney is the LAST person we need as the Republican nominee.

'Romney making 2nd presidential bid official' - Title

That's because he lost the president bid to McCain in 2008.

Who lost the presidental run to Obama, in 2008.

I believe this is the 3rd or 4th story about Romney from the DSNews, today.

Don't be so obvious DSNews.

I really liked Romney as a presidential candidate before he became one 4 years ago, but now I'm not so sure. It seems like his platform is that he's not that 'evil' Obama.

I'm sick of his propagandistic attacks on the president, what I want to here is how he plans on changing things like the deficit.

If his platform continues to be 'vote for me because I'm not him' I think I'll pass.

If Mitt can stick to the economy, jobs and reducing government spending he will do well.

no to o. let's hope anybody but o gets elected. I'm surprised to see pagan respond so quickly.... Some must have a notice anytime o or an opponent's name gets press.

@byronbca, I kind of get the same impression. I like Romney, but unfortunately, it feels like he's picking up where he left off last time: clueless how to get his message across.

Attacking Obama? Why? The bad economy pre-dates Obama. Same with the wars in the middle east, etc. Talk about how you're going to change the culture in US government, not how you're not "the other guy." People will see right through that, IMO.

He's qualified for the job, but he has a heck of a time passing the interview with the American people. I'm afraid this will be "deja vu all over again."

ok, on the republican side we have...

Mitt Romney: who will run this country like it's a big business.

Ron Paul: who wants this country to be nothin' but big business.

Tim Pawlenty: who wants this country run by big business.

Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin: who have no business running this country.

it would be funny if it weren't so sad...

O.K. Good enough for me. I know who'll have my vote .... and it's NOT the "incumbent", nor will it be the "Utah guy" how struggles to define his religion; however, he does look good on a motor cycle!! Go, Mitt!!

Mr. Romney, I would like to see you win. I dont agree with all of your Republican ideas but you have shown that you can admit that you are not perfect yet and can make amends. But when you make this statement: The last two years have not been the best of times, I have to ask where in Hades have you been for the last 10 years? Dont gift wrap fodder to MSNBC and dont play just to FOX viewers. You are running for President of the United States not the leader of the Paul Ryan gang. By election time there could be a bounty on these people.

Ohhhh Nooooo it's none other then DN's icon, the Flip Flop Mitt Romney again. Romney wants to provide tax subsidies to individuals who buy insurance to give them parity with those who get it from their jobs. This is a fine idea, but expensive. I have no idea how it would be paid for without the taxes or spending cuts that Romney seems to dislike. Then there's Romney's contortions on Obamacare health care. Where's the ad's on DN about this?. Mormon Mitt Romney Flip-Flop on Abortion. The Utah DNC Is Selling T-Shirts Accusing Mitt Romney of Being a Flip-Flopper. Mitt Romney presumably supports President Barack Obama's decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed at Guantanamo Bay. Romney Flip Flops on Auto Bailouts. The ones that love him, the latest video from the DNC hits Republican frontrunner Mitt Romney where it hurts, OUCH, in the flip-flop. Immigration. In a November 2005 interview with the Boston Globe, he described an immigration overhaul advanced by John McCain as "reasonable." He now denounces it as an "amnesty plan." In December 2006, he signed an agreement authorizing state troopers to round up illegal immigrants?.

Mitt is the only person that can save this country now. God bless.

Romney is the one! He's the only best qualified candidate to be President. Let's get America back to her glory and prosperous days! Go Romney!

With all of these articles focusing on Mitt Romney, does this mean the church is endorsing him cause it is kinda looking that way to me.

I am looking to see Rick Perry get into the ring.

I don't know who puts me to sleep faster him or Tim Pawlenty? Jeez they are so boring I would rather watch fake press for Donald and Sarah Trump.. Now that is a strong marriage!

Maybe third time will be a charm. Don't see a win this time around.

DSN articles will be biased tours the LDS personalities, although I don't know where are the Harry Reid ones :-/ .. but anyhow. Obama has been the extension of the Bush dynasty, and even though Mitt Romney it's quite the Flip Flopper, I'd vote for him, because he might just flip flop to other policies that I supported him for back in the day. That might just happen. At the same time, Mitt Romney it's a lot more liberal than the Democratic Party in Utah, yet he still seems to get everyones attention there... an observation that tells how people would follow one of their own even it means been less conservative or more.
