Is it happening? Maybe. Possibly.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Romney told a group of donors that he’s considering running for president for a third time.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney , the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, told a meeting of donors Friday that he is considering another White House bid in 2016, people present said. […]

Mr. Romney made the remarks during a session Friday afternoon with a few dozen top GOP donors in midtown Manhattan, according to people present.

Corporations are people, my friend.

    We’re going to need a bigger clown car.

    Mitt Romney’s delicate fee-fees are still stinging from losing two years ago to the socialist Kenyan usurper. Of course he’s going to run again, but my fearless prediction is that he’s cannier this time: he’ll wait until the clown show runs out of cream pies, then present himself as The Grown-Up Candidate.

    He did the whole campaign thing in 2012 and was terrible at both retail politics and hiding his disdain for retail politics. Sitting back and being named the party’s candidate by acclamation would be much more to Mitt Romney’s taste.

      Romneybot still doesn’t comprehend why he wasn’t handed the presidency by acclamation. His biggest problem last time was that he came across as a rich, entitled asshole in a party full of rich, entitled assholes. I’m utterly convinced that he’s never really wanted to run for president or serve as president. What he wants is the prestige and international acclaim that comes with being president. The actual drudgery that comes with campaigning and pretending you actually care about the peons and their petty little problems holds no appeal for him.

        Oh, Romney absolutely wanted—and still wants—to be president. But run for the office like a common politician? That would be beneath him.

          Like I said, he wants the prestige of having been president, much like Dubya only wanted to be president to show up his old man. Neither has had much interest in being a policy wonk.

            A policy wonk? Harrumph. That’s what aides are for.

            Romney—GWB, too, come to that—gives every indication of being a firm believer in the Great Man notion of history, and further believing himself one of those Great Men. I’m so tired of people like that.
