CBS “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer says he has it on solid authority that Mitt Romney may take another whack at the White House if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush doesn’t run in 2016.

“I have a source that told me that if Jeb Bush decides not to run, that Mitt Romney may actually try it again,” he said during a panel discussion on his Sunday show, reported by Newsmax.

The assertion comes as Mr. Romney has started to emerge from his self-imposed political silence and taken on several high-profile speaking engagements at Republican fundraisers in recent weeks.

Both Mr. Romney and Mr. Bush have similar positions on many political issues, although the former was recently proven correct on his campaign mantra that America needed to turn a more watchful eye to Russia. Mr. Bush, on the other hand, has been widely touted as the only GOP candidate with enough political capital to beat Hillary Clinton, should she announce a run.

On the other hand, Mr. Bush just lost favor with members of his own party with a recently stated belief that illegals come to this country out “of love” for their families, and they should not be treated as felons.
