Mitt, Tagg and Ann Romney on the campaign trail. (Yahoo)

Mitt’s son Tagg Romney says the former governor didn’t want to be president anyway.
The Atlantic reported:

If you thought the tale of how Mitt Romney lost the general election was already told, you would be wrong. Because there is so much left to tell, like how Mitt never wanted to be President anyway.

At least, that’s what Tagg Romney says in this new Boston Globe report on what went wrong with Romney’s campaign. While the rest of the piece seems to say the problems lay in the Romney campaign’s lack of technical advantage, and refusal to introduce the world to Mitt Romney, the human being, this little morsel from the Republican’s son points to a larger problem:

He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. He had no desire to . . . run,” said Tagg, who worked with his mother, Ann, to persuade his father to seek the presidency. “If he could have found someone else to take his place . . . he would have been ecstatic to step aside.

His father won’t like hearing that.

  1. Sounds pretty Washingtonian to me.

    Compare and contrast with the usual narcissist seeking high elective office.

  2. I believe that Romney stepped up because Obama is destroying America. He did say he didn’t want to run but felt we were going off the cliff and it was Obama’s doing.

    This is no surprise because again, Romney, himself, said this in one of his interviews or speeches.

  3. I my opinion, once in 50 years comes ago a truly amazing Candidate. Being President is a very difficult job for not just a president but his family. Many sacrifices are made. You are under the scrutiny of the nation and the world.

    You really have to have some ego and a woman or man by you side with even a large one.

    I don’t feel that Romney’s ego was up to the job. Obama on the other hand has ego and does enjoy the limelight, this was not one of Romney’s fortes.

  4. He didn’t want to be president and made sure he would not get elected. But he strung us all along and accepted a lot of campaign contributions along the way. Makes us look like a bunch of suckers, doesn’t it?

  5. Romney’s fortes. And to defined this, IT IS NOT A GOOD THING TO BE EGOTISTICAL and that is why we are doomed under Obama.

  6. Perhaps the greatest presidents are those who never wanted the job. Roosevelt and Truman come to mind.

    Then there’s Ronald Reagan who made the American people comfortable because he himself was comfortable in his own skin.

    Mitt Romney could have been another Ronald Reagan –but the in your face guy sucked all the air out of the room.

  7. “He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. He had no desire to . . . run,” said Tagg, who worked with his mother, Ann, to persuade his father to seek the presidency. “If he could have found someone else to take his place . . . he would have been ecstatic to step aside.

    Romney never would have had a chance to get my vote except the country is under a communist onslaught.

    I’ve said before I regret voting for Romney, but his numbnuts son has me wishing I stayed home and never voted for his liberal abortion loving father.

  8. re: ““He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life.”

    Sounds like John McCain to me – except Romney did put a little effort into his run for office, whereas McCain just gave up and kissed Obama’s ass. McCain was a LOT more affective fighting Sarah Palin than he was fighting Barack Obama, RINO jerk.

    Romney at least tried.

    Obama made a speech about Daniel Inouai today and mentioned himself 63 times. Obama is incapable of being more than he is. Frequent expensive vacations, pretending to work with Republicans while unwilling to compromise. And this pathological need to be center of attention are hallmarks of his administration.

    We don’t know what Romney would have been like as President but we do know he liked to make decisions and wasn’t into being onstage every minute. That would have been a good thing.

    IF anybody wonders why we have such sick people running for office…

    that post should provide you some insight.

  11. So Romney, not really wanting to be president, attacked his primary opponents relentlessly to secure the nomination. As a true and faithful RINO, who thinks Obama is a nice guy but in over his head, secures the nomination and feigns a hard run. Well, I have to give him credit, he was a better actor than McLame. I really started to think Mittens did care about our Constitutional Republic. Me thinks the RINOs just did not want a conservative running and boy did they get their wish. I did find it interesting that Mittens didn’t seem to want to use the same tactics against Obama as he did against his fellow republicans. Live and learn.

  12. Just shut up, please. Why would you say something like this?

  13. Isn’t there a remote location somewhere that we can send the offspring of candidates to be held incommunicado for about 20 or 30 years so we don’t have to endure the drivel that comes out of their mouths? Tagg and Meghan McCain can be the first occupants.

  14. I still think Matt Romney’s comment that he thinks Obama is just great still takes the prize.

  15. It showed…and you heard it from me and many others DAY 1. …THIS ELECTION WAS THE 1919 WORLD SERIES. …..If the internal polls were really close, Romney would have said the N word on purpose to seal his loss. HE WAS PAID TO LOSE. This is how corrupt DC insulates itself from the people…buying and propping up opposition that has a stealth mission to LOSE….Picking one of Boner’s sad pouty face boys as VP all part of the RINO game plan.

  16. If thats true then Mitt sux.

  17. and this is his son??!?!

    what kind of jerk is he! Dissing his father like that in public, what a moron!

  18. Don’t buy Tagg’s comments. Why all the negative adds in the primaries? Why team with Ron Paul at the debates? Why the Rule 12 change at the RNC convention?

    Well, Tagg maybe right. Maybe he didn’t want to be president. But he sure in hell wanted the GOP nomination.
