    Mitt Romney 'had no desire' to run for president, his son says

    Mitt Romney 'had no desire' to run for president, his son says



    5 hrs ago

    After weeks of Mitt Romney's campaign staff blaming everything from Obama's torrent of constituency "gifts" to the barometric pressure in Ohio for their loss, the delusional swoon has subsided and an attempt to "reverse engineer" what went wrong during the campaign has begun.

    One of the chief — some might say deal-breaker — issues was that Romney did not want to run again after he was disappointingly passed over for the 2008 party nomination. “He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. He had no desire to . . . run,” claims his 20/20 hindsighted son Tagg, who reportedly badgered Mitt into running with help from his mom, Ann.

    Tagg Romney: Mitt 'Wanted To Be President Less Than Anyone I've Met'

    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.

    The oldest Romney son was an instrumental figure in his father's political career. He served as an adviser to the 2012 campaign, and has worked on previous campaigns.

    Like his father, Tagg Romney attended Brigham Young University and earned his MBA from Harvard Business School. However, he told the New York Times that "I’d be really surprised if I did [run for office]. It’s a really horrible process, and honestly I just don’t want to go through it."

    Ann Romney told ABC in November that if her husband lost the election, he wouldn't run again.

    The Global elite used Romney to knock out any potential threat to Obama. He never had any intention to win. The Globalist's hedged their bet just in case

    Heads they win; Tails they win

    Just as John McCain did; Romney played the Very Same Cards

    Once he secured the Republican Nomination he said every single crazy thing he could to get the Independants to run like hell from him; as well as chasing 7-9 million Ron Paul Supporters and Constitutionalists from the Party

    RINO McCain did the very same thing in 2008

    It was Rigged from the Get Go

    I heard a radio host past few days state Romney won majority of independents in 5 of the 8 most important state, but no matter he failed to gain Ron Paul and large parts of the conservative votes many simply did not turn out. This is why it is laughable when they (GOP)talks of gaining Hispanic voters when they can't hold there base.

    Romney didn't want to run for president, son says

    Mitt Romney arrives on stage on election night November 7, 2012 in Boston, Massachusetts, moments before conceding defeat to US President Barack Obama in the 2012 US presidential election. No one wanted to be president less than Romney, his son said in an interview out Sunday that raises new questions about the candidacy of the losing Republican nominee.

    AFP - No one wanted to be president less than Mitt Romney, his son said in an interview out Sunday that raises new questions about the candidacy of the losing Republican nominee.

    In an interview with the Boston Globe examining what went wrong with the Romney campaign, his eldest son Tagg explains that his father had been a reluctant candidate from the start.

    After failing to win the 2008 Republican nomination, Romney told his family he would not run again and had to be persuaded to enter the 2012 White House race by his wife Ann and son Tagg.

    "He wanted to be president less than anyone I've met in my life. He had no desire... to run," Tagg Romney said. "If he could have found someone else to take his place... he would have been ecstatic to step aside."

    Mitt Romney "is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them. He loves his country, but he doesn't love the attention," his son said.

    Romney, a former Massachusetts governor and multi-billionaire businessman, has been widely criticized for blaming his loss in the November 6 election on President Barack Obama's "gifts" to Latinos, women and the poor.

    "What the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote," Romney said during a call with campaign donors in mid-November that represented his first public reaction to his election loss.

    The Globe story sought to look beyond that narrative and examine what really went wrong.

    It focused on the fact that Romney was unhappy that one of his most trusted advisers, Mike Murphy -- the architect of his successful 2002 run for governor of Massachusetts -- did not join the campaign.

    Instead, the campaign settled on Stuart Stevens, who had worked on Romney's 2008 presidential bid.

    The Globe story also highlights the decision to downplay Romney's biography in favor of going after Obama and the flagging US economy.

    Campaign strategists feared that highlighting Romney's biography would open the Mormon candidate up more to personal attacks that he was wealthy, out-of-touch and belonged to a minority faith.
