Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 15, 2014

The wealthy, well-connected donors who raised more than $1 billion for Mitt Romney in 2012 are looking for somebody -- anybody -- who is capable of beating Hillary Clinton. About 300 of the 2012 Republican presidential nominee's most influential supporters gathered at a luxury resort in the Rocky Mountains this weekend to rub elbows with potential 2016 presidential candidates. Six months from the unofficial start of the next presidential campaign, is there anyone in the Republican Party who could take on Clinton?

"I think if you asked this group, 'who could beat Hillary Clinton,' they'd say, Mitt Romney could beat Hillary Clinton."

"The unavailable is always the most attractive, right? That goes in dating as well," Romney joked when he was asked about the summit's palpable Mitt-stalgia.

I am sure the our Millennials will again vote in droves for dems as they have accomplished so much for their economic welfare.

Oh yes, please do allow more illegals to come and also continue to propagate all those great rules, regulations and policies that to have proven to boost our economy and gain more jobs.

SArge, when are you gonna get with the program?

You argue for the 'mitts' of the world but they are the ones who employ the illegals. They whine about how unfair it is to them while they send their jobs overseas and they setup mailbox headquarters in foreign countries to keep from paying taxes to the USA.

Then, they wrap themselves in the flag and pound a bible and get people like you do their fighting for them. Then when you come back from war beaten and mangled, they vote down expenditures to help you, and say, 'it's all their fault'(pointing in every direction except their own).

And when you go to get some crappy job from them, they have none for you because they've sent the factory to the country where you got mangled.

But, you losers keep fighting for them and their private jets. And they will keep giving you the horn and saying it is good for you.

"The wealthy well connected donors"..... Aren't they ultimately the same demographic whether a Hillary supporter, or someone who could beat her?

They are puppet masters implementing trade pacts, open borders, tax cuts for the investor class, crony capitalism where average Americans build their stadiums and bail out their banks. And ah, the most important of all-- maintaining billions in foreign aid and sending Americans to die in the ME to keep our special apartheid "ally" secure.

Folks in the "middle" determine the election Those on the far right and far left always vote for their side, A moderate like Chris Christie could possibly beat Hilary Clinton IMHO

Nostalgia for him is just running from the likes of Cruz, Palin, and the rest of the GOTP mental midgets. He's the only one remotely presidential.

Of course, anyone not bowing to TP like CC, who might get enough votes in the general election to win, can just forget it. Better to lose and stay pure.

Good.

As long as you take the view that Mexicans are running to the US and not from their homeland you won't be able to really understand what is happening. End the drug war, take away the power of the cartels and then you will see that what is really happening is that the U.S. is funding the destruction of the society of Mexico and Mexicans are fleeing for their lives. Ending the drug war, once and for all, would do more to end illegal immigration than all of the border guards you could ever hire.

You are thinking of Dubya, aren't you? Or maybe Reagan.

Obama has deported more illegals than Amnesty Reagan or the Bushies.

Then again, when you get all your info from FOX, you actually believe Obama has chartered 747s to haul the drug lords and their minions to America and personally handed them SS cards and welfare checks.

Reality and the Right are like sunnis and shia.

Those are dubious numbers and you know it. Those numbers mostly include people who never actually made it into the interior of the country, but were turned away at the border. Interior deportations are down under Obama by at least 40%.

Pretty sad when a flawed candidate like Hillary appears to have it in hand against the dolts, crooks and privledged sons put forth by the NOPe. When Bob Dole went against Willie it was because it was thought to be Dole's turn to run--not because he was the best candidate available. Some Dems think of Hillary in a similar fashion. Isn't there a Republican who can realistically counter her?

I agree on the drug war, it was the designed to militarize the police, terrorism finished the job.

That being said, most of the children currently crossing are from Central America, not Mexico; anybody can see that this is an orchestrated event purposefully planned to garner support for amnesty.

So what, it still represents less than 1% of the ten of millions of illegal aliens in our country. That must be real good for the tens of millions of Americans looking for work.

Have you read or heard any interviews of the thousands of kids coming here? I guess not. NO kid would want to leave his home and family to strike out on his own, in a very different country, unless he/she was afraid to stay where he/she was.

I think if you have to consider the estimated six million conservatives who stayed at home rather than throw their values out the window in order to get a more accurate look at this...

and the premise is not completely true.....this story like the others comes from MEDIA who wants another 'mitt' to run and I can't imagine has talked to any of those six million I mentioned or anyone remotely happy about things like the tossing out of cantor....

what you are seeing is the TRUTHS coming out....on so many issues when he was attacked and assaulted..time and events are proving that MITT WAS RIGHT....mitt romney will NOT be the gop candidate... IMHO

Umm, Obama is shipping them all over the country via the Dept of Homeland Security. So, to show you I don't get all my news from fox, will you accept USATODAY?

Is that a bad thing? I mean, isn't it better to catch them at the border, and not let them into the interior of the country?

Obama Derangement Syndrome is epidemic on this site.
