GOP Establishment Secretly Pining for Mitt Romney in 2016?

by Tony Lee 31 Jan 2014, 3:09 PM PDT

Some Republican establishment operatives and their big donors want former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to run again in 2016--but they won't go on record with their comments.

An anonymous establishment operative told left-wing BuzzFeed that the 2016 GOP field, which is considered as strong as 2012's was weak, has "gotten so bad" from the establishment's point of view that donors are "looking back fondly on the good old days of 2012."

“You know what a lot of them say to me? I think we need Mitt back," the anonymous source told the liberal outlet.

A recent poll of 2016 presidential primary voters in New Hampshire found that Romney was still leading in the Granite State, but other polls have shown that the Republican establishment figures still have not learned the lessons from 2012.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee led a national poll conducted by Public Policy Polling, while former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, though she was not included in the poll, had the highest favorability rating among Republican presidential primary voters.

The GOPe is truly desperate now the Christie is done... but really Romney has run for office how many times and won once.

 I feel a conservative election coming on. The establishment wants to pick our candidate and tell us who to follow. I think 2016 will surprise the GOPe and we, the people, will choose our own leader and then we will follow him or her all the way to the ballot box.

The GOPe doesn't need to create a new front runner when it can buy the current front runner.  We already own the Huckster, Ryan, Rubio, and Bush.  The others will be assimilated.
You may not see the Wall, but it's there.
It's been in your heart all this time.
