Should Romney run for Kennedy’s Senate seat?

posted at 7:10 pm on August 26, 2009 by Allahpundit

I don’t get it.

It would be an intriguing thing if, after waiting a day or two out of respect for the late senator, Romney were to downshift and announce he will be a candidate in the upcoming election to fill Kennedy’s vacant Senate seat.

Such an announcement would likely be embraced immediately by the Republicans, who would like almost nothing more than to deny Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada his new, hard-won, 60-vote, filibuster-proof majority. As a self-funding candidate who has already been elected once statewide, Romney has nearly 100 percent name ID. And, in an environment where President Obama seems to be dragging the Democrats down, he would be a serious threat to the Democratic hegemony in Massachusetts’s congressional delegation. Meaning Romney likely would win.

Would he? Obama’s still near 60 percent approval in Massachusetts. Given the creepy dynasticism of the Kennedy cult, you can expect them to lend their weight to a campaign for the seat to stay Democratic (“Do it for Teddy!”). Romney’s not the same pol who won the governor’s race in 2002, either: Remember, his conversion to the pro-life cause came while he was in office so he’ll be demagogued inside the state as a cynical sell-out to the hard right today. And there’s more to lose in doing this than there is to gain. If he wins, he ends up stuck in the minority with the rest of the GOP with no way to pass legislation unless he compromises with the Democrats — not something a guy who’s already suspected of RINOism is wont to do. If he loses, it proves he’s a paper tiger who can’t even carry the moderate states to which he’s supposed to appeal as a potential Republican nominee.

Running and winning would lend him some extra gravitas and name recognition, which he’ll desperately need in a primary against Palin and media darling Huckabee. But even so … seems like a longshot with the potential for catastrophe. Let’s vote on it.

You can always find some other reason to laugh at them. Let’s say they owned a car company and then found a way to subsidize it by giving people a big pile of money to buy new cars. Then lets say that most of the money went to other car companies. Those idiots managed to lose a game that was fixed. Now that’s impressive.

I don’t think he can win Mass now because last year he ran around the country telling everyone that he was the second coming of Reagan. He became a whole other person than the guy who ran for the Senate and then won the governship.

I don’t say this as the typical flip flopping thing. I believe politicians can evolve in their beliefs, but they cannot evolve and then devolve and still win votes.

The Cash For Clunkers program is adding to the activity at treasurers’ offices all around South Dakota. First, people were asking for proof of ownership, so they could show they owned their vehicle for a full year, allowing them to cash it in. Now, they’ll be returning to register their new vehicle. And when they do, new owners need to bring every bit of paperwork provided to them by their dealer.

“That means they need their title, their damage disclosure, their bill of sale and the dealers have 30 days to get that to them,” Minnehaha County Treasurer Pam Nelson said.

But many of those cashing in on the clunkers program are surprised when they get to the treasurer’s office windows. That’s because the government’s rebate of up to $4500 dollars for every clunker is taxable.

The fools have to pay taxes on the rebate they got for the cars they couldn’t afford. This is rich.

Mitt would probably win. There was a poll a few days ago in the local paper as to who are most respected politicians were in the state. Romney came in second to Ted Kennedy. Everyone else in the poll came in the single digits.

A few months ago there was another poll that had the majority of residents wanting Mitt Romney back as our governor over our current governor Deval Patrick, whose favarobility numbers by the are in the teens.

Name recognition rules in MA. No else viable for the Dems has it. Romney is a known and popular commodity. Also, we have been fantasizing with cultish furor to elect a man from MA back into the White House. A win over Kennedy’s senate seat could be the first step towards the nomination in 2012. If not at the very least we’ll know that as the 41st vote he’ll help keep the Dems in line.

Upstater85 on August 26, 2009 at 7:32 PM

Romney should absolutely run for that senate seat. If he lets that seat go to the Democrats by not running, he shouldn’t even be allowed to remain a Republican, much less run as it’s presidential candidate.

Even though Mass is liberal, you don’t get as many of them to show up to vote on special election days. I think that is why Arnold won so easily.

I think he would have to act fairly conservative as senate to remain a presidential hopeful at some point.

Personally, I think Mitt would garner much more positive attention if he became governor of Michigan and fixed the economy and school system here. Michigan is currently THE example of what liberals can do to a state, rivaled only by California. If he turned it around using non-RINO conservatism the liberals would have to just shut up and go away, or keep blathering on and remaining un-credible as ever.

Spiritk9 on August 26, 2009 at 7:36 PM

If he runs and loses, he’s done. If he runs and wins, I might gain a smidgen of respect for him.

He might be the Republican with the best chance at winning the seat but what kind of re-flip flops would he now have to do to get back into the bean-eaters good graces. And, at that, I think he would hurt is chances for 2012 if he were to renege on too many of his recently found conservativism.

And, like above, if he loses the Senate challenge that takes a lot of air out of his hopes for 2012.

JoeinTX on August 26, 2009 at 7:36 PM

Mitt’s Lt. Gov. Kerry Healy lost the Gov’s race in 2006 to Deval Patrick. She has Mitt’s endorsement and already has statewide name recognition.

Why? She’d never actually win. She’d just be CRUSHED!

When did Hucklebuck become a media darling? The only one who thinks he’s that is Allahpundit.

I vote Megan McCain. Is she old enough?

Maybe the McCains could even get Linsey up to Mass for some campaigning. Think about it guys.

Gosh. I thought it over, and I genuinely do not care. I mean not at all. I cannot imagine caring less about anything in the world than whether or not Romney runs for Kennedy’s seat. Run. Don’t run. Whatever. I guess Romney’s not my guy in 2012. Second look at Sarah?
