In an interview with Bloomberg, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said he thinks that it’s “buyers remorse” with Obama’s policies that’s driving the growing talk about Governor Mitt Romney as a potential presidential nominee in 2016.
“I think people now know what kind of person Mitt is. I think that thing on Netflix, that’s the Mitt we knew, and that didn’t come out as well in the presidential campaign,” Ryan said.
“And I also think that a lot of the things he said in the campaign, the projections he made with respect to Russian and Iraq, and others, were true,” he added.
“Sign me up for the ‘Mitt Mania.'”
When asked about Mitt Romney running again, Paul Ryan said he would “absolutely” support his former running mate.
“I’d drive his bus if he asked me.”
At a rally Tuesday in support of several Republican congressional candidates, Mitt Romney told reporters “I’m not running,” the Washington Times reports.“I’m expecting to be getting behind some good people or a good person who will be [the Republican nominee].
A recent CNN poll said that Mitt Romney would cream Obama if the election were held today. Mitt would beat Obama handedly, 53% to 44%. But that same poll also said that Mitt would lose to Hillary Clinton by double digits.
