Mitt Romney Back in Race

Would You Welcome Back Mitt?

Yesterday we reported on the speculation that Mitt Romney might be gathering up his army of sons and hopping back in the race.

Just when it seemed like the race was heading into its final shake out before the nomination, Ralph Nader, Michael Bloomberg, and Mitt-redux could make the playing field bumpy. Would you be happy to see Mitt back? If not Mitt, which dearly departed candidate deserves a re-do?

Don't get me wrong, I like Mitt a whole lot better than I like McCain however at this point everyone is starting to get behind McCain and if Mitt gets back into the race we would end up in the same mess as the Deocrats are right now.

I totally support Romney's return - the more options and discourse, the better.

Oh, and since candidates' spouses have been in the news, recently, I think Fred deserves points for having an accomplished (and, yes, photogenic wife. And no suspicions of funny business: he divorced his first wife in 1985 and began dating Jeri in 1996. She is "...a former media consultant for the Washington, D.C. law firm of Verner Liipfert. She has also worked for the Republican Senate Conference and the Republican National Committee." (wikipedia)

3M I agree with what you say about Fred being the possible VP candidate. I've been a die-hard Mitt supporter for quite awhile, and was sad when he suspended his campaign. However, I do believe it was for the best for the Party since McCain's got the nomination in the bag for sure. I'm almost positive that Romney will not be the VP with McCain, for various reasons, but if Thompson were to get it, I would be happy with that decision. I think Thompson will definitely help McCain carry more votes, especially in the South. He will do more for McCain than, say, Huckabee, who (let's face it) is only still here to try to get the VP slot! To sum it up... I don't know where they got the info that Mitt's coming back. It doesn't make sense, and his re-entrance in the campaign would be counterproductive. Therefore, he should wait until 2012, and ROCK the GOP nomination then! =)

I presumed Mitt was popping up again to keep his name in the ring for VP. MMM, I'm with you, major FredHead! Even my 17-y-o DD was rooting for him. We were extremely disappointed that he dropped out before California. (Although she couldn't vote in the primaries, she will be able to vote in the general election). I've been hoping he'd get the VP slot, he'd be a great balance to McCain's brand of Republicanism. I'd love to see him run in 2012!

Yes. It was absurd of him to drop out in the first place, when he was SECOND in delegates. It made no sense, unless he had made a deal with McCain of some kind.

I have not heard that book, but I have totally had that experience. My vs. The book.

The only book I read everything of was Guns, Germs, and Steel... Only because it was such a heavy read that eventually it was like me vs. the book and I was NOT going to let the book win!!

Oh who knows who let him write it. God forbid people be educated on Conservative values. It goes back to my Liberal education conspiracy theory. I have to read everything in a book. I am obsessive compulsive that way. I really wish I could skip it.

Who the heck let him write the afterword? Honestly, I'm guilt of skipping both forewards and afterwords anyways.. Remnants of my HS attitude...

It is sort of ammusing to see how he tries to flip Goldwaters political views to make him seem like a Liberal. When I read it I swear I heard Goldwater laugh out loud.

Soooo skip the afterward then?? :)

One thing I would like to add is that Robert Kennedy Jr. wrote the afterward, and he is an idiot.

Reagan is Regan because of what Goldwater did for Conservatives.... Here are some Goldwater quotes and tidbits: Barry Goldwater defined the elements of the Republican equation as: balance, diversity and creative difference. He defined the cause of Republicans thus: ~ to ensure that power remains in the hands of the people…. ~ to restore a clear understanding of the tyranny of man over man in the world at large. ~ to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don’t rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression - and this is hogwash. ~ to remind ourselves, and the world, that only the strong can remain free: that only the strong can keep the peace. Goldwater said: Anyone who joins us in all sincerity, we welcome. Those, those who do not care for our cause, we don’t expect to enter our ranks, in any case. And let our Republicanism so focused and so dedicated not be made fuzzy and futile by unthinking and stupid labels.

Oh man would 3M love that! I like the middle name Jefferson. I bought that book for someone I work with and it changed his political perspective. He FINALLY understood what a Conservative is, as opposed to what the media makes us out to be. I am excited for you to read it!

Oooh Im going to buy that book, I bet my hubby will love it too! I kinda want to name my first kid Reagan...

Mariner, it is actually a t-shirt that I am dying to buy. I wonder how many random people on the street would understand it. We have to wait until September! Lame. I am wayyy too impatient for that.

Lol cabaker. The picture is of Barry Goldwater, Au is the symbol for Gold, H2O is for water. So if you put the pic together with AuH2O you get Barry Goldwater! Do you know who Barry Goldwater is? I HIGHLY recommend reading Conscience of the Conservative. You will fall in love with Barry Goldwater. It is not a long book, and it is an easy read. If he had a better name I would name my first born after him. I know, I am obsessed. And you could never lose my friendship!
