Uggh! . . .
DYLAN SCOTT – JULY 3, 2014, 6:00 AM EDT
According to its own ticker, DraftMitt.org has gathered more than 28,000 names of people who want Mitt Romney to run for president in 2016. That isn't anywhere near the 2 million-plus claimed by Ready for Hillary. It's only about a quarter of the interest needed to earn an official response from the White House (if it were on the We The People website, which requires 100,000 signatures.)
But it's not nothing.
Which begs the question: Who's running this conservative (and low-budget) version of Ready for Hillary? That's the rub: Nobody seems to know.
It has a professional website (not paid for by Mitt Romney, as it makes very clear) and growing following. The number of signatures stood in the mid-10,000's when TPM first visited last month; now it's approaching 30,000.http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/who-is-draft-mitt-2016
Please --- whoever these people are --- just knock it off, and while you're at it, get a productive fucking life --- will ya? Mitt Romney has been trying for the better part of two decades to worm and buy his way to the presidency. And the American people have consistently and resoundingly told him to go fucking pound sand. What part about "Fuck NO!" don't you people comprehend??
Listen -- The Gadfly gets it. The Mittster is your guy. You love his little vulture capitalist heart and it just kills you that he and Queen Ann aren't ruling their gilded Washington, D.C. throne as their Mormon prophets have portended.
It's a goddamn tribal thing -- and frankly, the Democrats aren't above the same behavior.
Hell, The Gadfly, believe him or not, honestly is not a fan of Hillary running in 2016 for pretty much the same reason. There's too many snooty, cocksure, old school tribal liberals who are convinced that she's the chosen one simply by virtue of her political pedigree.
The Gadfly acknowledges that Hillary would be a better choice than Mitt, but come the fuck on -- if liberals are going to retain any measure of credibility, the better choice for a woman candidate, by far, would be Mass. Senator Elizabeth Warren. Warren scares the living fucking shit out of the Wall Street snakes and cockroaches because she knows which closets most of their financial chicanery skeletons are hidden in, and, she isn't afraid to talk publicly about it.
As well, and many people don't know this, but Warren is a former Republican, however, when she observed the criminality that Wall Street and the financial services industry was engaging in the run up to the 2008 world financial collapse, and observed how the Republicans were gleefully enabling it, she ditched the GOP and joined the Democrats (not that they are a whole lot more innocent, but compared to the GOP, they're practically fucking angels).
But back to the point of this post --- Mitt Romney? For President again in 2016? . . . . Sigh . . . .The Gadfly would rather be tossed naked in to a swimming pool filled with double edged razor blades, broken shards of glass, and the Kardashian bimbos than be put through that brain numbing misery again.
Just saying . . . . . .
