I can’t say this is an absolute, but I am going to do my best to avoid trying predicting the future on this site because it is impossible for human beings to predict how other human beings will exercise their free will. It’s hard enough to make sense of what people are doing in the present. So, let’s try to figure that out instead…
For the past few months, Sal and I have been discussing whether Mitt Romney is considering a second run at the White House in 2016. He sure seems to be acting as if he is. Just months after losing the election, he spoke at CPAC in 2013 , something politicians do to either raise or maintain their profile.
Then, there was the Netflix documentary titled “Mitt” that came out a few months ago, a documentary Romney seemed to be promoting with his mere presence . Now, the Washington Post is reporting that, at Romney’s invitation, some of his top aides are planning to gather for a ski weekend in Utah later this month.
I don’t know (and contrary to what they tell you, no one else does either) whether Mitt will run again, but he seems to be considering it. I’m torn by the idea of another Romney run. My displeasure with his repeatedly shifting political positions is well documented, and he is 1-2 when it comes to major general elections.
On the other hand, his business acumen is unquestioned and his tax plan accomplishes the dual objectives of making our tax code less corporatist and more growth oriented by lowering tax rates and ending the practice of picking winners and losers by closing loopholes. It could also be argued that the best way to gain experience in any endeavor is to fail and learn from one’s mistakes.
At the moment, I certainly prefer many of the potential candidates to Romney. But, if he wants to run, why not? Campaigns have a way of highlighting a candidate’s strengths and weaknesses. I doubt I’d vote for him, but he’s entitled to give it a shot, and he would have the money necessary to make his case.
