The radio news says Romney isn’t running for president

  1. Chris Says:

    I didn’t particularly notice his presence in 2012.

    Nor did the voters.

    He actually garnered 6 – 7 million less votes than McCain, IIRC.

    I would feel better if we had this in writing.

    The guy is a bad penny.

  2. Tam Says:

    It’s not that Romney thinks he’s presidential timber that worries me; Dunning-Kruger explains that handily. It’s these unspecified “backers” and “donors” that were encouraging him to run that the news keeps mentioning. Who are these dimwits?

  3. Mr Evilwrench Says:

    The establishment, go along to get along types that keep looking for approval from the ‘rats and wondering why they keep getting pantsed. They’re like puppies.

  4. Ron W Says:

    The only downside is that Romney would help split the “RINO” vote among himself, Bush and Christie which more often happens with the conservative/Constitutionalist types.

  5. Richard Says:

    Ron W. beat me to it. That was my first thought but I was too slow.

  6. Robert Says:

    One down, and a few more to weed out.

    When I was a wee lad in gubmit class, the instructor informed us that even though the Soviet Union had elections the communist party selected all of the candidates.
    Being a curious tyke I asked her who picked ours.

    Chirp chirp.

  8. Ron W Says:


    We typically have several, but the political-media establishment instructs us that if we do not vote for one of two “major parties ” then we “waste our vote”. Most of those who vote obey that, many of whom vote for “the lesser of two evils, while the rest don’t vote. The whole system could be shaken violently should we simply vote FOR a candidate that most closely represents our views.

    I was kinda hoping he’d run to split the establishment vote and money with Jeb, to give an upstart a chance.

    You could, but that would require getting involved, which is a lot like work.

    Who’s your local GOP precinct chairperson?

    Chirp chirp.

    Not a very curious tyke at all, are you?

    Last time I was home, I had a nice little sit down chat with my State Senator, as part of a gun rights lobbying day. I don’t think I persuaded her of anything, but I was at least able to expose her to some standard pro gun-rights platitudes. Every little nudge helps. I figure even a little personal contact with local politics has more effect than merely voting.

  12. Sebastian Says:

    Tam makes a good point. The truth is that we pick the nominees through primary elections. That nod usually goes to a) the person who spends the most money, b) the person who offends the various constituencies the least, and c) the ones who are actually good candidates, which is generally only tangentially relevant to ideology. But at the end of the day, in most places, they do stand in front of voters.

    So if we’re picking bad apples, the problem is one of voter ignorance.

  13. Sebastian Says:

    I’ll argue that in the current GOP election cycle, I think Scott Walker is the candidate who really excites almost no one, but he is also not very offensive to any GOP factions. He’s someone everyone can live with. Therefore I think he has a good chance of doing well with if not winning the nomination.

    There are times when you can get a candidate who the whole coalition falls in love with, but those are very rare. The last time the GOP saw that was Reagan. Arguably the 2008 version of Barack Obama was that for the Democrats. But Obama is no Ronald Reagan in terms of political talent, and we should be thankful for that.

  14. Ron W Says:

    Any politician who wants to restrict our deny our right to acquire, possess and carry what we choose for our own self defense demonstrates their ignorance and, more likely, arrogance that they operate UNDER delegated powers when EMPLOYED to administrate OUR GOVERNMENT. Thus they are UNWORTHY to be the servants of a free and self-governing people.

  15. divemedic Says:

    By the time the ballots are printed for the primary, the decision has already been made. Ever wonder why the only choices are a Bush, Romney, or Christie?

    The powers that be have selected the ballot choices months ago: the choice is douche or turd.

  16. JTC Says:

    Nominations and elections are decided by who gets voted against rather than who gets voted for, and that is done with bought votes and bought media…Jeffersonian has it about right but backwards.

  17. Windy Wilson Says:

    The advice here, which is rarely heeded, even by those who give it is to walk the precincts EARLY in the campaign when no one knows who the front-runners will be, so the person with the values you want to support by an elected official has a chance to be the front-runner. That’s hard and takes time away from our hobbies, like working, sleeping and eating, so it isn’t done as much as it should be.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
