The Perennial Candidate

Romney is the dictionary definition of a bad penny. It’s worthless and it won’t go away.

Utah Republican delegates force Mitt Romney into a primary[…] in the race for the U.S. Senate

After 11 hours of political elbowing and shoving at the Utah Republican Convention — held appropriately at a hockey arena — delegates forced Mitt Romney into a primary election against state Rep. Mike Kennedy in the U.S. Senate race.

In fact, Kennedy — a doctor and lawyer — finished in first place at the convention with 51 percent of the vote to Romney’s 49 percent. The former GOP presidential nominee fell far short of the 60 percent needed to clinch the nomination outright. [snip]

Senate race

Romney blamed his second-place finish — out of a dozen Republicans seeking the seat of retiring seven-term Sen. Orrin Hatch — on delegates’ dislike of candidates like him who hedge their convention bids by also gathering signatures to ensure at least a place on the primary ballot.

Romney collected more than 28,000 signatures and was the only Senate candidate to do so.

Conservatives have for several years fought in court and in the Legislature to overturn the state law allowing signature gathering, seeing it as weakening the power of the convention and its delegates. [snip]

Romney is as popular as a root canal with aspirin as a pain killer. His political position is as stable as the wind direction forecast on the local news warning of a severe thunderstorm.
One thing known is he is a member of the GOP elite and will vote with the bankers and Wall Street every time; that leaves you out of the mix.
