Romney vs. Holyfield: The Weigh In

Five-time heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield and Mitt Romney weighed in Thursday for their “fight” Friday evening for Utah’s Charity Vision, a nonprofit that provides eye care for patients in developing countries.

Romney weighed in at 179 pounds while Holyfield was a little heavier, coming in at 236.5.

Romney looks to be in great shape, yet Holyfield is a 142,000:1 favorite against the former presidential contender, the one chance being that Holyfield develops rapidly metastasizing cancer in the ring and dies before chemo can be administered.

No, those aren’t the real odds.

Romney Not Running for President

Mitt Romney announced Friday morning that he will not run for president in 2016. Romney, who made the announcement during a statement by phone to supporters, withdrew from consideration even though he tops polls of potential candidates for the Republican nomination. His decision would most obviously seem to benefit Jeb Bush, who is seen as… Continue Reading

The Latest Gruber Video

It’s not exactly what you think. And BTW, notice whom else he thanks. Romney is smart, but the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., that old Fox, was smarter. He used Romney to set in motion the process that led to the Affordable Care Act and eventually, perhaps, Kennedy’s decades-old vision of universal, single payer coverage. Continue Reading

Romney? Really?

Will Gruber Ruin the Romney Revival?

MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Obamacare whose comments disparaging Americans as stupid have gone viral, may not just be helping topple his own creation. He might also short-circuit the political revival of the man he worked with on a similar scheme, Mitt Romney, who was assisted by Gruber in creating Romneycare. The avalanche… Continue Reading

Make Romney the Ebola Czar

The appointment of Ron Klain to save us from Ebola is another one of President Obama’s specialities: Pasta Fiasco. Klain is a Democratic operative. His major life’s work has been protecting, promoting and serving the White House as chief of staff to Vice Presidents Biden and Gore. How are we going to trust what he says… Continue Reading

Romney Blows Away the Field in Iowa

Are we looking at another lackluster group of Republican presidential candidates? Is Mitt Romney nostalgia sweeping the Republican Party? Is it a little bit of both? Romney didn’t just win a poll of Republicans asked about their preferences in the Iowa caucuses. He killed. The new USA Today poll gives Mitt Romney 35 percent of the caucus vote,… Continue Reading

Romney Opens the Door

Mitt Romney Tuesday opened the door to a possible third run for president, saying that while he’s not running now and doesn’t plan to seek office, “circumstances can change.” Romney, who spoke to radio host Hugh Hewitt, updated his “I’m not running” stance significantly, making clear that he in fact wants to get in the… Continue Reading
