Mitt Romney gives GOP advice on how to win the White House in 2016

Failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney offered some advice to his Republican friends on Sunday.

During an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Romney focused on the potential 2016 candidacy of Democrat Hillary Clinton and said, “I think her clueless comments about the Bergdahl exchange as well as her record as the Secretary of State are really going to be the foundation of how a Republican candidate is able to take back the White House.”

There is a lot of supposition in Romney’s remarks. For one thing, Hillary Clinton has not announced that she’s running for president in 2016.

Perhaps more importantly, Romney is assuming that the Republican Party nominates a candidate that is not so far to the right that mainstream voters, who greatly outnumber radical conservatives, will actually elect.

If Romney turns out to be right he will look like a genius. If he’s wrong, few should be surprised.

The former Massachusetts governor and venture capitalist may be best known for calling millions of Americans lazy freeloaders in his infamous “47 percent” video. Some believe Romney’s comments and the way he handled the backlash helped Barack Obama win a second term.
