Rep. Jason Chaffetz: Romney’s the man in 2016

Is this kind of thinking why the Republicans might never see the White House again for a long, long time?

At least one House Republican thinks Mitt Romney will make another run for the White House in 2016 — and this time, he says the 2012 runner-up will emerge victorious.

“I think he actually is gonna run for president. He probably doesn’t want me to say that,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) told host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball” on Monday. Chaffetz also backed the former Massachusetts governor early in the GOP nomination process for 2012.

“A hundred times he says he’s not, but Mitt Romney has always accomplished what he’s set out to do. I think he’s proven right on a lot of stuff. I happen to be in the camp that thinks he’s actually going to run and I think he will be the next president of the United States,” he said.

Got that? Chaffetz predicts that the guy who lost to the guy who lost to Obama in 2008 — who then went on to lose Obama in 2012 — will run for and win the White House for the Republicans in 2016.
