How many ways can Romney say no to 2016?

Washington (CNN) - Guys, I think he means it.

With no clear frontrunner or obvious "next-in-line" candidate in the field of potential 2016 GOP presidential contenders, Mitt Romney keeps getting asked if he's thinking about throwing his hat in the ring one more time.

But it's not entirely a far-fetched question.

    Romney is moving up in the polls as Hillary is moving down.

    If those two are our choice, we are sunk, America.

    Romney doesn't have to say No. The American voters said it for him.

    Wow. What a mindless and annoying article. He'll find as many ways to deny it as the useless sacks of flesh at CNN and the rest of the MSM find for asking him. Seriously, you are some of the stupidest, most annoying people on the planet.

    Romney has been rejected three times by the voters of America so he should just forget it. I always thought it was his wife who really wanted the presidency. She wants in the White House badly.

    Almost 66 million people already said no to Romney in 2012. That number will get bigger if he tries again in 2016.

    How many ways can Hillary say she is running!! With Hillary you don't have to book your own life, you have the Nanny State, on Steroids. With Mitt, you better start learning how to do it yourself!! I guess Romney is sunk, Eh?

    A greedy corporate goon, didn't that go rather badly last time? He stole money from the workers retirement accounts, yup, we really missed out on that, and I'm rather certain your not wealthy, so, your voting gop makes the joke on you, lmao.

    Considering it's the MSM that keeps bringing his name up. Shouldn't you be asking yourselves this question? No other loser in history got this much press and airtime.

    This guy doesn't get the economy: Romney's campaign is based on the notion that because of what he did running investment firm Bain Capital, he understands the economy. So it's perfectly reasonable to examine what his experience at Bain really taught him. After all, Bain wasn't in the business of creating jobs; it was in the business of making money. The truth is, the high unemployment rate is due to people like Romney outsourcing jobs. That's why middle-class Americans are suffering so much. China didn't just steal our jobs all by themselves. Romney and other profit-driven executives like him wrapped up the jobs in a great big package, put a bow on it, and gave the jobs to the Chinese. Now, maybe the Chinese would have taken some of them on their own, but Romney didn't have to push the jobs out and happily give them away. Mitt was a pioneer in sending jobs out of the United States to China. This is the person you want to be president of the United States

    Rich old men will always send poor young men to fight their wars while protecting their sons

    Romney supported the Vietnam War, but did not enlist. Instead, he got
    draft deferments and worked as a missionary ["minister of religion"] for
    31 months, for the Mormon church, in France, one of those "European

    The GOP/TP loves to recylcle their candidates, especially the losers. Next they will be calling for the pig with lipstick Palin to run.

    How can we miss Mitt if he won't go away?

    This loser was not even good enough for mccain's VP role and just looked at his replacement.
    @bill in GA, considering GA's social security income for people over 65+ is 30.6% (third in rank of states from the top down taking in Fed money) it better be a Democrat in 2016.

    didn't we already say no to this guy? can't the republicans take a hint

    Um, Sorry,
    All of you want Mitt to be your Nanny. Sorry but he isn't going to bring any money back so you can steal it. Or in other words tax him out of it. You like the 29 hour work week, you got it!

    I like the place you stopped the video above at for posting it though CNN. Blitzer has that "I'm angry because I can't understand" look on his face that you'd expect from a gorilla you just handed a Rubix Cube when what he really wanted was a banana. Must suck to have to live life in a perpetual haze of almost understanding what's going on around you. Right, Teatrolls?

    I can see it now...the WSJ and Chamber of Commerce and other plutocrat gasbag organizations fund a massive "Recruit Mittens" campaign and next thing you know Mittens is spotted at Home Depot waiting in line for the paint shaker machine while holding an Eth-A-Sketch (trying to bribe his way forward in line no doubt).

    Here's an idea. Stay off the air and keep a lower profile unless that is....
