Kamikaze Politics: “Run, Mitt, Run!”

Written by Gary North on October 15, 2014

We are told that mainstream Republicans want Mitt Romney to run against Hillary Clinton.

No one thinks he will be running against Joe Biden. If there is someone who does, he needs to watch this.

Think of this from Mr. Romney’s viewpoint. Running in 2016 will give him an opportunity to lose to the woman who lost to Barack Obama. This is called “lamb to the slaughter” politics.

What would be in it for him? Most obviously, the high possibility of back-to-back defeats: the first since Adlai Stevenson, the second since Tom Dewey. I can see it now: Hillary holding up a copy of The Washington Times: “Romney Defeats Clinton.”

My advice: leave the man alone. Let him depart in peace. Once is enough.

He should say this to the Republican Party’s stalwarts: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

  1. Phillip the Bruce says:

    If Mitt, or anyone else who has nothing special to offer, runs against Hillary, she may get as many votes just because she is a woman than Barry did just because he is 'black.'

  2. Romney was the GOP pick because they judged him to be the only candidate they had who was 'electable'. IOTW, out of a field of clowns, he was the only guy they could pass for a real candidate. He wasn't. And although I'm registered as GOP now, if they don't quit standing up guys who can't pass muster in real life, they will still be the narrow side of the house.

    I've not been impressed with them since Barry Goldwater, and I'm still not. But I am voting GOP because I'm convinced we are going to be forced to exercise our Second Amendment rights if we want to keep our ideal of what "America" means.

    I have never voted for a Dem, but there are very few Reps left that I will vote for, other than locally.
    The Reps treatment of Ron Paul proves that they are not what they claim to be. At least the Dems are honest about their plans for us.

  4. I think Romney would have been 150% better for the country, trouble was he was a terrible campaigner and had a real bad manager. I think him running again would not be good but he should get a good cabinet post if a Republican is elected. I like Jeff Sessions, I wish there would be more about him. He is a true conservative. Check him out!!!

  5. with the republicans the third time is the charm ! .. they are destined to go down in defeat if they pick Romney

    When do they wake up to the fact that they are picking losers .. McCain ? Romney ? and Romney again ? .

    it looks like they want to lose !.

  6. What we need in the Presidency is just the opposite of Obama ..I'm for Ben Carron .. a person of Moral Character and possessed with Common Sense .. which is sorely lacking in the Obama administration ..
