Tagg, You're (Full of) It!

One of Mitt Romney's sons, Tagg, opened up his mouth again and said his dad didn't really want to be president:
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.

"He is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them," Tagg continued. "He has deep faith in God and he loves his country, but he doesn’t love the attention.”
What a load of crappy crap crap. Then again, we already knew Tagg was a natural born liar.

There is no way that Mitt has spent seven years of his life and countless tens of millions of dollars - not to mention the hundreds of millions of other people's money - for something he did not want.

Sounds like ol' Tagg has been having sour grapes for his Christmas dinner.


  1. "...if he could have found someone else to take his place..."

    Because nobody, nobody else wanted the Republican nomination. Didn't even try.

    And actually, Tagg, I have met quite a few people who wanted the nomination less than your Dad did. You have probably never heard of them because, well because they were smart enough to figure out that a good way of avoiding an office they didn't really want was to NOT RUN FOR IT.

  2. If Mitt could have found someone else to draw all the unpleasant attention to his own financial and tax history instead of Mitt's -- and still reliably use the political power of the office to Mitt's benefit -- I'm sure Mitt would have deferred running in that other fellow's favor, if he'd had a better record as a successful salesman than Mitt to give some confidence that he'd do better as a candidate.

    But where was such a better candidate, in Mitt's eyes?

    He was his own best guardian of his own interests, he thought.

    And if he ends up in prison, who is there to dispute that belief?
