Interesting to read all the comments. Quick question. Who would all of you want
to have for our next President? Based on all that has happened over the past
couple years and based on the accuracy of Mitt's description of the
challenges that our country would face if the course was not corrected,
hasn't he proved that he has the best understanding of the global
challenges and local challenges that we face in the U.S.?
Do you guys ONLY read DN? Plenty of other websites are talking about Mitt and
the Draft Romney movement. This article in particular is news, but not new news;
it's not "gushing over him". If you don't like it, then you
are free to not read it. Unless you're into self-torture or something. Everybody thinks Romney is down and out. But we'll just see.
To Pendergrast: Do you understand you live in a very conservative state and 90%
of the electorate voted for him? And now most of the country realizes how much
better off we would be with him as our president instead of reading about the
scandal or dishonest practice of the week by Obama's administration? If
you want daily liberal pieces about how great Obama is then move to New York.
Let's not draft a rich Mitt Romney!How about a dead broke
If Utah State Republican Party Chairman James Evans and other Republicans,
really care about the good of the country they would work to draft Jon Huntsman
Jr., not Mitt Romney. Huntsman would be good for the country and has all the
qualifications necessary to govern well (including extensive business AND
foreign relations experience). Mitt knows how to rake in obscene amounts of
money by taking companies into bankruptcy and then sending the equipment and
jobs overseas while putting American workers out of work.The
American voters did an excellent job of vetting Romney last time around. They
saw though his etch-a-sketching and flip-flopping, saw the truth about him, saw
him for what he is and was recognized his efficiencies and (thankfully) sent him
packing. Bad as Obama is (an I didn't support him -- I voted for Huntsman
by write-in), Romney would have been infinitely worse.Please, Mr.
Evans -- work for a good candidate. Don't try to inflict Romney on the
@one old man 7:31 a.m. June 27, 2014 Here's an idea: If Mitt
continues to insist on some kind of military action in Iraq, how about drafting
him into the Army?-----------------Good idea. But not
just Mitt -- draft his sons too and put them all on the front line. None of
them have put their lives on the line to serve the country (like my father and
husband, and a lot of other men and women, did). If Mitt is going to talk the
talk then let him (and his family) walk the walk.
While I voted for Romney and KNOW he'd have been MUCH better than Obama
he's too liberal to ever get my vote and 80% of my friends. He's
asking for Hatch's help to get his son to replace Mike Lee, that's
naive as Mike Lee is a TRUE Patriot. Romney is out of touch with the needs of
this Nation while Rand Paul, Paul Ryan, Mike Lee, orTed Cruz are not. Time to
hang it up and enjoy his family. We DON'T need Romney.
Cletus from CoalvilleCoalville, UT"Mitt would never win –
the entitlement society among current voters is expanding too rapidly."... durn them 47%!"Furthermore, amnesty for illegal
immigrants (which will probably happen before the next election) will add a huge
influx of Democrat voters who traditionally gravitate to the candidate willing
to promise the most public resources."...except that it would be
many years before most of them could vote. And if they are productive
contributors to society, do you begrudge them citizenship because most of them
do not trust republicans? "Everyone knows Romney supports
policies promoting equal opportunity over government resources that mandate
equal outcomes -- he would never win in today’s changing society."...you mean equal opportunity for people like himself, the only kind he
understands.And you affirm that Americans would not elect him, while you
would like to deny their right to choose.
A few teams looked at him, but it's not going to happen. His hockey days
You want to Draft Mitt?After he Blew your chance to anoint a mormon
President with his and Ann's imperiousness?After a hot Wind hit
him on Election Night?After the Flood of votes for the President in
the Electoral College?When the Storm of "anyone but the Black
Muslim" votes were all his?Maybe you ought to check the weather
"August kickoff expected for 'Draft Mitt' effort"In all sincerity, Good Luck!Seeing Mitt Romney run for President
and lose has become a cherished tradition for many Americans.The
outcome is always so reassuring.
Mitt would never win – the entitlement society among current voters is
expanding too rapidly. Furthermore, amnesty for illegal immigrants
(which will probably happen before the next election) will add a huge influx of
Democrat voters who traditionally gravitate to the candidate willing to promise
the most public resources. Everyone knows Romney supports policies
promoting equal opportunity over government resources that mandate equal
outcomes -- he would never win in today’s changing society.
It is amazing to see that Mitt Romeny is alive and well in Utah. The rest of the
country and world has forgotten about him. He will remain so.
Mitt didn't really want to be President in 2014. Tagg said so. Not time
for the White Horse Prophecy. Huntsman would have been great.
Mitt is done. He learned last time it is impossible to reach the 47% of victims
unless you are willing to promise them handouts and he won't stoop to that
level like some will.
I wish both Obama, and Romney could have been given some High School
standardized tests, and a couple IQ tests as well.It would give the
voters a more objective view of the candidates.
What's that song? Oh yeah - "Let it go."
Mitt had his shot, twice. He has said that he would be a supported, but not
run. I like the guy, but I hope he means it, and doesn't run.BTW let's get past the 2014 election before we start getting into the
@Pendergast"God bless predictability?"Look at
all of the same liberal commentors who flock to respond to any article on SSM
and religion. It goes both ways.
The people of this country are not wise enough to see past the smears, and lies
of the liberal media, and politicians.Therefore, Mitt would lose
again, and Hillary will be the new president.
Groundhog day to the nth degree.Has Mitt told someone he wants to do this
again, or is this also news to him and his family?
to The Real MaverickYou can count on the DN for not only pro Mitt
articles but the "religion is under attack" editorials as well. God
From the way things are going in our country, a Great man like Mitt, does not
stand a chance.. the morals are deteriorating faster than a puddle of water on a
Another mitt article? What's this paper's fetish with him?
A Resurrect Ronald Reagan campaign/fund raiser/website would have more
success.Two failed efforts are not enough?Leave Mitt
alone.He is doing very well as an endorsement machine for the
I see two other obstacles to a potential Romney rerun. The electoral system and
the ignorance of the people regarding maintaining the freedoms and liberties of
Deja two, three, four, five, six..............I feel like I'm trapped
in a time warp continumum with the plethra of Mitt stories found in the DNews.
Here's an idea: If Mitt continues to insist on some kind of military action
