Great news: The Mittster’s inner circle is convinced he’s running again

Via Linette Lopez and Hunter Walker. Third time’s a charm for the Mittster?

Mitt Romney held meetings with donors in New York this week that left one attendee convinced he is running for president again in 2016.

A member of Romney’s inner circle who spoke to Business Insider said the former governor of Massachusetts traveled to New York City on Monday where he met with key financial backers of his past campaigns to lay the groundwork for a 2016 White House bid.

The source, who was at one of the meetings, said other attendees included developer Stephen Ross, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, and hedge funders Julian Robertson and Paul Singer…

During his time in New York, the source said Romney also attended Monday night’s football game between the Miami Dolphins — owned by Ross — and Johnson’s New York Jets. Dom Cosentino, a Jets beat writer, reported seeing Romney and Johnson walking across the field together before the game.

Romney’s meetings this week are not his first efforts to reconnect with former donors and campaign staff. In October, The Washington Post reported on a “flurry of behind-the-scenes activity” that Romney’s “friends” said was leading him to “more seriously consider” running for president again. This activity included multiple meetings with donors and “supporters in key states” as well as an October dinner in Boston that Romney and his wife hosted for “former campaign advisers and business associates.”

If there’s one way to keep ObamaCare off the table (again) and guarantee a Democrat victory (again), this is it. What was Einstein’s definition of insanity?  Oh yes.
