Mitt Romney's son says Romney never really wanted to be President. "He had no desire."

    If I were one of Romney's donors, who forked over millions of dollars collectively, I would be beyond angry to learn that Romney didn't actually want to be president. Is that why his campaign was such a disaster -- he wasn't even trying?
    It's all starting to make sense now:

    Tagg Romney said his father "wanted to be president less than anyone I've met in my life," according to the Boston Globe.

    “He had no desire,” the eldest Romney son said. “If he could have found someone else to take his place ... he would have been ecstatic to step aside. He is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them, but he has deep faith in God and he loves his country, but he doesn’t love the attention."

    Tagg Romney told the paper that his father was resistant to running because of his unsuccessful 2008 bid for president.

    Snort. Giggle.

    So he ran only to make sure Obama would get a second term? He enjoys campaigning? Needed a hobby? Lost a bet? His wife made him do it?

    Most of Amercia had no desire for Romney to become POTUS.

    This is, in my experience, what small children say when you take away their toys.

    "Well I don't want it anyway"

    Maybe the GOP will see the humor in the new development -- this is the ultimate flip-flop! Mitt never meant any of that "I want to be president" stuff. The whole campaign was a big scam. Haha, Republicans, you've been punked! icon_biggrin.gif

    He's a liar.
    He was crushed when he lost the Senate race against Ted Kennedy.
    And, he was just as crushed when he lost the race for the presidency.

    Many years after George McGovern was defeated by Richard Nixon, another losing candidate asked McGovern when it (the loss) stopped hurting. McGovern replied, "I'll let you know."

    "a heart beat from being President"?

    Only if you believe Fox Feaux News.

    The majority of the voters of the USA disagree.

    You could see the disappointment in his losing speech on election night. I remember seeing it in his eyes when he said "and Ann would have made a great first lady," and it was obvious he suffered a devastating disappointment.

    Such integrity, character, honesty and commitment....."Oh, if you insist, I guess I'll give it a run, if no one else is going to"

    How many millions of $ were wasted that could have been (but wouldn't have been) used for good purposes?

    Romney apparently thought he had the election in the bag, and his loss was a surprise.

    What I really love is at least 4 MORE YEARS of the Conservapussy® minority moaning, bitching, and whining. I'm looking forward to savoring every single day of it.

    They certainly have gone quiet, thankfully!

    Bullshit.
    His ass wanted to die when he lost. He felt like the nation turned their back him. He felt like all of this was for nothing. He gave it his best shot and he still lost. He wanted to crawl up in a corner and weep like a baby. He beat Ann's ass like he was a white trash hillbilly off of Cops.

    This doesn't surprise me one bit. While he was Governor of Massachusetts, he was absent for a large portion of his four year term.
