    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 the people.

    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 Republican Party.

    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 hot day.

    You can count on the DN for not only pro Mitt articles but the "religion is under attack" editorials as well. God bless predictability?

    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?

    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.

    "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.

    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 2016 election.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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 report.

    A few teams looked at him, but it's not going to happen. His hockey days are over.

    "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.

    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.

    -----------------

    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.

    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 country again.

    Let's not draft a rich Mitt Romney!

    How about a dead broke Hillary Clinton?

    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.

    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.

    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.?
