Oh NO! Mitt Romney Is Seriously Considering Running for President, Again!

The Wall Street Journal’s Patrick O’Connor is reporting that all of the signs coming out of the Mitt Romney camp are pointing to his considering another run for the White House in 2016. Romney has long been a GOP establishment favorite, partly for his personal deep pockets, partly for his serious lack of conservative credentials, and partly for his connection to the Northeastern corridor of our nation.



Romney’s entrance into the race would be a severe blow to the hopes and dreams of candidates like Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and others from the establishment… mostly because it would mean the avenues for funding would quickly be drying up. As it is, Jeb Bush is already siphoning off many of the GOP’s BIG donors, and if Romney were to announce, it would likely mean the end to Chris Christie’s Presidential aspirations.

However, Romney’s entrance would also pose a big problem for the conservative candidates in the race. Again, the donor pool is only so big, and candidates like Mitt Romney seem like safer bets for donor money. However, it could also draw more conservative candidates into the race, meaning no one conservative could unify the conservative vote and offer a real challenge to the establishment.

Either way, as a conservative, I sincerely hope that we have seen the last of Mitt Romney in presidential politics. It’s not him, it’s me… I’m just too conservative to get behind the guy. He seems nice, but I am ready to move on.

What about you? Yay or Nay to another Mitt Romney Presidential run?
