Mitt Says Jeb Would be Toast



According to Politico, individuals close to Mitt Romney say he’s become open again to the idea of running for president in recent days. The reason, they say, is that he sees a weak GOP field. In particular, Romney reportedly thinks Jeb Bush would get wrecked by his business dealings with Lehman Brothers, Barclays, and private equity.

Romney has reportedly talked to casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who pumped tens of millions into Newt Gingrich’s campaign against Romney in 2012.

According to one executive who met with Romney, “He does not think much of the current field and does not think it is jelling. He still views himself as the leader of the establishment wing of the Republican Party. He does not feel he owes the Bushes anything and does not think Jeb is the de facto leader of the establishment GOP.” Read more at Politico.

  1. Hope he changes his mind. There are some good Republican potential candidates out there. He had his chance and I don’t think he would win this time around either.

  2. We Americans need a true conservative, with a clear program, a manly presence, and an aggressive campaign program. Of course Jeb is not it, and Mitt is not IT.
