Listen up, ladies and gentlemen.
Just when you thought it was safe to eschew establishment GOP candidates, it appears that “someone” is waiting in the wings, “just in case.”
And he may run as a third party candidate, as an independent.
Oh My: Romney For President Paperwork Was Filed With The FEC Last Month
by Katie Pavlich
Former Massachusetts Governor and GOP Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney insists he isn’t running for President of the United States in 2016, even to stop Donald Trump.
“I’m not running and I’m not going to be running,” Romney said on NBC over the weekend while keeping the door open should he be named at a brokered convention in July.
Uh-huh. Except: see the paperwork he filed here.
But according to paperwork filed with the Federal Elections Commission last month, a Romney presidential run isn’t being completely ruled out.
Under what circumstances would Mitt Romney step onstage?
I think you can suss that out for yourself.
Question to those whose trust was betrayed by Mitt Romney last time: just what makes you think that Romney “means it” more this time than last time — in light of the fact that his campaign was tepid at best — and his son Tag said Mitt wasn’t much interested in running for president in the first place?
Sorry, not falling for that one twice.
THIS JUST IN:
Unless, of course, it’s false to begin with, as Conservtive LA was kind enough to point out. From Twitchy.com:
No, this FEC form doesn’t mean Mitt Romney is running for president
The form was filed because of an address change for the political consulting firm, Red Curve Solutions, LLC. See the “X” in the box marked “Check if address is changed”?
All right, I guess I can close the bomb bay doors now.
