Mitt Romney "had no desire to run" says his son
Mitt Romney didn't want to be president, anyway.
That's what Tagg Romney, Mitt's oldest son, told the Boston Globe for its big post-mortem on his father's failed presidential bid published on Sunday.
“He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life," Tagg Romney told the paper. "He had no desire to ... run. If he could have found someone else to take his place ... he would have been ecstatic to step aside.
Romney's reluctance to become commander in chief has been hinted at by his sons before. Before their father sought the 2012 GOP nomination, several said they tried to convince him not to run.
"I tried to convince him not to," Matt Romney told Conan O'Brien in June. "I think there were a few of us that tried that. I just felt for us as a family, this isn't the best thing. But ... for the country, we think it's the right thing."
Romney hated the idea of running for President so much he ran twice.
What a nice slap in the face to all those who worked on his campaign, donated millions to his campaign and wasted their vote on him. Maybe he should think about repaying every one of them.
One campaign worker said he shut off their credit cards before they could get a cab home after his concession speech (which he had NOT written, because he "only wrote an acceptance speech.") That really sounds like someone who "really didn't want it anyway."
