Question For Romney: What Next?

BOSTON, (UPI) — Republican Mitt Romney “can do whatever else he wants to do” even though a third run for the U.S. presidency is closed to him, a political strategist said.

A few hours after Romney conceded to President Obama, Romney told his staff they had just witnessed his last political campaign, The New York Times reported.

However, two people in that meeting in Boston said Romney said, “I will not fall off the map.”

Friends, aides and advisers have speculated Romney could write a book, return to the financial sector or could take on a major role in the Mormon Church

“The only door that is closed to Mitt Romney for the remainder of his life is being president of the United States,” said Steve Schmidt, a campaign adviser to Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in his unsuccessful 2008 bid to be the president. “He can do whatever else he wants to do.”

Losing a presidential campaign, however, “is something you never get over,” Schmidt said. “The question is whether you can move forward without bitterness or rancor.”

At a breakfast for top advisers and donors Wednesday, Romney spoke of how Obama campaign turned out such huge numbers of voters, and expressed frustration about opposition attempts to characterize him as an enemy of women, which Romney said was simply untrue, those attending the event told the Times.

“He will be sifting through this for quite a while,” said Kirk Jowers, a friend of the former Massachusetts governor. “The question is whether the sifting takes a couple of hours a day instead of being all consuming.”

    What’s next for Mitt Romney? Ask Wayne Allyn Root. He always seems to know the right answers. On wait….no he doesn’t.

    Is there some law that says he can’t run again? He could spend the next couple of years learning to be more aggressive and more conservative.

    Why couldnt Mitt try again, I never knew he was the American and patriot that I now know he is until after he was out in the public eye. The group of people he started gathering would do nothing short of grow even stronger. We will always need the leadership in government that Mitt could give; especially after what will come from another four years. Right now Mitt could be handling the fouled up throw money policy not helping those stranded from Sandy. He could also tell the news on some stations what Obama could or should be doing, give them something to lie about but seems Obama usually does what people come up with if it helps him to look good.

    Mitt did not loose because he wasnt a good candidate he lost because of the media lies and false acuasations made against him, plus the fact that he wasnt prepared to play the dirty politics that were set against him.
