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.
