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

    Right after romney lost..it was reported he was stunned and sullen along with all this campaign staff who didnt expect the loss. I believe that. Romney put his heart and soul into winning that election, his wife was very sincere in her campaigning. There is absolutely no way that I can believe that romny was the last guy around that wanted to run...this is an attempt by a guy who lost and wants to act like he doesnt care or his son does.

    I'd like to think he's been downright suicidal. It's just more fun that way.

    Wow, wish he woulda followed his heart and listened to his family on this one. Instead, Romney whiffed on listening to his personal Jiminy Cricket and screwed us all into 4 more years.

    This is patent nonsense. Romney had been running more or less continuously since 2006.

    Obviously Tag wants 16 minutes of fame. Pretty pathetic to make this kind of claim, don't see what to be gained other than pulling a Palin to see his name in the media again.

    Perhaps the most creative sour grapes in POTUS election history. At least its a more manly response than "Acorn Did Me In".

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

    I don't buy this one. Romney wouldn't have run for two straight nominations if he didn't want the presidency, he wouldn't have gotten dirty against the rest of the field in both nomination runs if he was running against his wishes. He wanted it, he lost.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    for all the money the Romneys have you would think they could hire a screener so the first time they say something stupid it wouldn't be out in public.

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

    i am inclined to believe tagg's version of events
    mitt has no charisma and he must realize that. his VERY weak attempts to match Obama singing at public forums is ample evidence of that reality. he's tone deaf to public opinion; much like hillary talking 'black' before african-American audiences
    so, the campaigning and glad handing was definitely an unnatural aspect for him to engage in. but also notice he relished participating in the debates, one-on-one, just like in a board room
    mitt wanted to be the president, which is not the same thing as mitt welcomed the campaign
    he wanted to be the mormon president
    and given the weak economy and Obama's mis-steps, he saw that the election was ripe for the picking
    and if there is anything mitt was good at, it was picking low hanging fruit
    trouble was, he did not have any idea what he wanted to do with his new-found authority if the American public dared elect him. and it showed. which was why America did not select him
    that mitt wanted the office of president i am certain
    that he did not want to have participate in the campaign to earn it is also very likely
    tagg, you're it
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    Responding before I read the rest of the thread.

    I read this a day or so ago. I will say that I do not believe it for one second.

    However, just for the sake of conversation, let's say it is true. Then I'm glad he lost. I believe it is pretty near impossible for a person to be a good leader if their heart is not in it.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
