    DONNY DEUTSCH: Right now we're staring at two ridiculously scary unknowns, of course ISIS and Ebola. We're also staring at a poll: two-thirds of Americans say this country is going in the wrong direction. There is a psychological reason to go to Mitt Romney, and that is: wow!

    JOE SCARBOROUGH: Amen.

    DEUTSCH: We kind of made a mistake four years ago. We get to do a do-over. He was right about Syria, he was right about a lot of things. Oh, things can be okay if I just get a do-over.

    SCARBOROUGH: Hey, Donny.

    DEUTSCH: I think there is a big psychological push there.

    SCARBOROUGH: I hate to say this, Donny, I hate to say this, Donny: you're dead right. There is a reason why Mitt Romney has come out of nowhere suddenly. These are really frightening times. For young millennials who are right now about to go to sleep after playing Xbox all night and streaming music on Spotify, you may not remember, but we only elected a certain kind of leader when the Soviets existed and we had to elect somebody with their finger on the bomb. You know who those type of people were? They were like Mitt Romney. We didn't give a damn whether somebody was exciting. We didn't give a xxxx whether they talked about hope, whether they talked about change, whether they could play saxophone on Arsenio Hall. We didn't care. Donny, you're really on to something. There is a reason why a guy who seems dull and boring and stiff and can't be glib on the campaign trail --

    MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Also smart and successful --

    SCARBOROUGH: -- is suddenly is popping up in the polls. We need, we need somebody like Romney who has actually run something before and isn't going to be marketed like a Pepsi or like some snack food, Mika. This may actually, ironically enough, just like 1980 was Ronald Reagan's time, a guy who was seen as a joke up until the night he won in a historic landslide. Things are very frightening right now. We need competence. Think about what Michael Dukakis said in 1988. That's what we are in 2014. Mika, Americans year for competence. And Mitt Romney is competent.

    When even liberals prefer the conservative things must have gotten bad.

    I think that Mitt is a nice guy and a generous person but I do not want the GOP to nominate him again.

    I would be very happy to live next door to W or Mitt but I would hate to live next door to Al Gore or John Kerry or Bill Clinton or Obama. In fact, I am glad that my neighborhood is 100 % Republican.

    I don't believe Romney is all that conservative. But he's 10 times better than what we have.

    At least he is good-natured. I can't imagine that anyone thinks that Obama is good-natured in light of all the lies that he has told.

    He still rejects Jesus Christ. THAT should be more important to "political" conservative Christians than abortion, homosexuality, the border and Ebola combined.
