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

    It raises no new questions I do not believe it.


    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.

    Right, because we know that a win just isn't as fun unless we can believe the losing candidate is obsessively eating his heart out over it. Lol.

    The claim is too bizarre to really comment on.

    Hilarious. First it was Obama, after he didn't know how to tackle the "I don't believe in anything I previously said I believe in" technique. Now it's Romney.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    I recall it as common knowledge and casually disclosed, that it was Ann Romney's urging which prompted him to run.

    No big deal to anyone who followed the Romney campaign.

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

    Why don't i buy thios latest excuse for his failure? Well let me count the ways. First he had multiple opportunities to tank his presidency in the primaries. Why was he even in the primaries if he did not want to be in the first place? But he could have subtly lost to Perry, Bachman, Gingrich, or even Cain. In the end he could have really subtly lost to Santorum who had a good deal of support. Why not make a few faux pas during those fights and let one of them beat you? Yet for some reason he tried very hard to actually beat them considering the republicans were not terribly thrilled with Mittens the liberal. Why go extreme conservative to win the primaries if you did not want the presidency? He could have just ran in the GOP primaries as a very moderate republican and lost easily. They already knew he was a moderate so why fight the losing image if you wanted to lose?

    Now for reason 2. it was repeatedly noted that Mittens lked the fight with obama, and he clearly enjoyed himself during the debates. You can say it was all an act, but he really seemed to be having a good time with it. He liked the attention. He clearly sought it out. He could have laid off the appearences and then claimed he made a mistake in losing, but he never did that. no, he fought as hard as he could throwing everything he could at obama. This was not a person bored with the election who was shying away from the possibility of being president, this was a guy who was having a good time being the star.

    Finally, why go back to being moderate and use the etch a sketch? The only purpose for the shift in his stance was because he wanted to win. He could have easily lost while remaining the hero and the great white hope of the republican party and stayed really right. He was clearly losing as his lying son claimed he wanted to. Why shift to being a moderate at that point? He was screwing up all over the place, and then he starts coming back in the debates by shifting to obama's position despite complaints from his own party about him becoming too liberal. Just stay on the right, please your party, and lose. The loss was clearly within his grasp and he tried to win.

    Sorry Tagg, but you are a liar and your dad is also a liar. There is one legacy of the Romtard family and that is losing presidential races. See you in a few years for your beating.

    No really, he did not mean to lose, him and the republicans actually planned on losing. No really, it is all part of their master plan to take over the world. You will never be able to beat the republicans at losing you democrats. Come on, we dare you to lose better than we do. Even john kerry could not lose by the margin mittens did. I knew we would win somehow, so suck on that democrats. This was actually a victory for us because we never wanted to win the presidency anyway, and you fools took the bait.

    Good god, how the hell do you stand after spinning that fast?

    This is baloney. Worse. It is yesterdays digested baloney about to go to its final resting place.

    Oh for cryin' out loud. Stop it! The election is now history and the same for that Romney fellow(s). It's time to move on to focus on important things such as the fiscal cliff and gun control.
