The GOP has clearly learned its lessons. The party is making a great break with the past and is marching into the future. Really? When you find out that Mitt Romney is in demand as a party surrogate in for the fall campaign it makes you think that isn’t necessarily true. I get that some people in the party still like Romney and his talk about Russia looks very clairvoyant now but is this really who the GOP wants to associated with?
Does anyone else remember that he lost to Obama 51-47? Speaking of 47 have people really forgotten his infamous 47% video? I guess they have if they are really making comments like this:
“There is a movement afoot. . . . I’d tell him, ‘Governor Romney, people here in Wyoming and around the country would encourage you to take another look at it.’ ”
Of course Willard won’t run again. He knows he wouldn’t even get the nomination this time. But still for a party that needs a fresh start why they want this guy to hang around is beyond me.
