Say it ain't so! Mitt Romney is on the comeback trail, and when I say the "comeback trail" I mean he's come back to help more Republicans lose on the 2014 campaign trail. Just as he ignored polls, logic, and anything predicted by anyone who didn't work for FOX-GOP-TV during his last failed Presidential run, he's now in deeper denial as to how big a loser he is. Apparently.
From Political Wire:
"More than half a year after his election loss, Mitt Romney is putting a tentative foot back onto the public stage," the Wall Street Journal reports.
Romney said that he plans to re-emerge in ways that will "help shape national priorities."
"As a first step, the former Republican presidential nominee plans to welcome 200 friends and supporters to a three-day summit next week that he will host at a Utah mountain resort. He is considering writing a book and a series of opinion pieces, and has plans to campaign for 2014 candidates. But he is wary of overdoing it."
Said Romney: "I'm not going to be bothering the airwaves with a constant series of speeches."
If Romney indeed plans to "shape national priorities" I say what better way to call even more attention to income inequality, corporate welfare, the "dreaded" 47% crowd, and the need for tax reform. This is great timing what with all the attention those who don't pay taxes and offshore their wealth are getting, he'll certainly remind voters just how Republican's priorities are shaped: Like a pyramid scheme. With the national discussion focusing on political campaign schemes, tax exemption for those who shouldn't rightfully have that status, and those who refuse to disclose their tax returns, I say great timing from Romney, as always!
Of course the bigger news here is that he's "writing a book" and hosting summits at resorts, which is a dead giveaway that he's really hoping to make lots more money that he can hide while taking advantage of anyone who wasn't paying attention to how badly he lost the last two times. Of course he won't be bothering with the airwaves. There's no profit for him there.
That being said, I look forward to watching him lend his expertise on losing elections to all the eager Republicans he can find. Sure, they ran from him as if he were contagious after losing in November, but they have even less ideas, and lower poll numbers now than ever before. They're in denial just as much as Romney is. They might just be desperate enough to welcome him back and add to his profit margin.
