Skip to comments.“Dad never wanted to be President”: Tagg Romney says Mitt had to be pushed by Ann and the boys

Mitt Romneys son says that his defeated dad never actually wanted the top job and he was reluctantly convinced to run for president.
He wanted to be president less than anyone Ive met in my life. He had no desire to run, the eldest Romney son Tagg said in an interview with the Boston Globe. 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 doesnt love the attention.
Tagg says that he and his mother Ann were the ones to help convince Mitt to put his own personal reservations aside and focus on the needs of the country.

Dont see it as a shocking revelation, though.
Dad never wanted to be President: Tagg Romney makes shocking revelation as he says Mitt had to be pushed by Ann and the boys
Well, at least he took the conservatives out of the race...or was that his order from the onset?
“Bah, I never really wanted those grapes. They were probably sour anyway.”
He sure went out of his way to trash better candidates...
I believe him. President was just a stepping stone to the real goal : To be a God.
Okay, so Mitt is a liberal loser and Tagg is a liar.
If this is true, the GOP elite have yet another reason to be kicked out. If someone doesn’t want the job, you don’t push them into it OR waste money trying to elect them.
True...but the trouble is, there aren’t enough of us.
Did he not have the fire in the belly ?
Well....he got his wish. Never liked him anyway. I miss 1980.
I don’t believe it. He ran twice.
Transparent example of same, too.
Like not a single Romney, ever, went into the military.
Sounds like sour grapes to me. Now Mitt joins my list of election losers:
Partial list of Prominent losing candidates:
Mitt Romney, Moderate, president
Juan McCain, Maverick, president
Paul Ryan, Conservative, VP
Sarah Palin, Conservative, VP
Tommy Thompson, Moderate, Senate
Todd Akin, Conservative, Senate
Richard Mourdock, Conservative, Senate
Sharron Angle, Conservative, Senate
Christine O’Donell, Conservative, Senate
George Allen, Conservative, Senate
Joe Miller, Conservative, Senate
Ken Buck, Conservative, Senate
Alan West, Conservative, House
Doug Hoffman, Conservative, House
JD Hayworth, Conservative, Primary
Now that they have lost the election, they have zero power to change any laws towards the conservative agenda.
Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, John Kasich, Rick Scott, Nikki Haley, Kelly Ayotte, Haley Barbour, Bobby Jindal
The winners are our only hope of slowing down the big government socialism train driven by the Kenyan driver.
Hey Mittens - we really didn’t want you either. I voted for you, but too many others stayed home.
Well that means he is probably sane.
Really, what sane perosn would want that job, especially heading into financial armageddon.
I didn’t want Romney but I have to say, maybe he is smarter than I gave him credit for.
I know how Slick Mitt feels. I never wanted him(or McCain or Obama or Hillary) to ever be president either.
Yep, we were all duped weren’t we? Just imagine if someone who actually wanted the job ran? I knew I should have submitted my name as a write in!
Fred Thompson didn’t want it either. This is getting to be too much of a pattern.
That makes 2 of us.
America had a chance, not perfect, but what we have done will never be repaired. America is economically finished and just a question when we will look like Greece and our streets will be violent.
That’s all I can say is ARGH!!!
Oh, and FUMR!! He should have gotten out of the way! He should have made the path clear for those who had the fire in their belly... Gingrich, Santorum... GEEZ, I am so #@#%$ing P#$$ed!!!
It's the Alinsky way.
It is not true. Romney has been running for president for decades. It was destined to be his (in his mind).
I'm not so sure the super liberal is done yet.
They’re like termites. Relentless. Always chewing away.
Lest we forget: Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal are not Natural Born Citizens.
You might want to revise your DU Hatelist.
King Obama’s girls will say the same thing after he sells them to some Saudi prince.
Someone with no fire in the belly will never win.
But all the RINO’s, media, Rove, Coulter, Beck, etc. kept telling us, “He’s the only one who can beat Obama!”
It’s over folks. As Gingrich and Rush said, we are in the minority and our impact diminishes numerically by the day.......
Time to press in to God.......the darkness is increasing.....
We didn’t want him to run either.
I always thought that he was running mostly because he perhaps feels that his dad George got screwed out of a chance. (His Dad’s brainwashed remark.)
Tore up his own side pretty viciously - didn’t he? The little b*tch wanted this REAL bad. Sour grapes is the thing. Poor little Tagg - he won’t be next in line for the office.
Learn to live with reality. Barack Hussein Obama’s dad was never a US citizen. I have news for you..YOU do not get to decide who is NBC, only SCOTUS and congress get to decide and they are just fine with “Hawaii” born Barack.
Passing the blame on others for losing election is not good enough. Good candidates win on their own merits. Recall Ronald Reagan? GOPe were unanimously against him, but he won because he was a good candidate. Ditto with Scott Walker in WI. Also Bob Mcdonnell.
I do not see any good candidates in my list of losers. But I love them because they are good conservatives with 2 or 3 exceptions. I contributed to many of them. But in the end, the winner takes it all (ABBA song). Therefore I will only support those in the future who show me they can win easily.
Nonsense. The Founders gave us a written Constitution precisely so that the PEOPLE could give their consent to be governed by it, and call government officials to account when they do not observe it. I am one of the people.
The definition of NBC at the time of the writing and ratification of the Constitution—and therefore what the people gave their consent to—was that found in Vattell: a person born of parents who were both citizens at the time of his birth.
The abject corruption of our current government officials does not affect the definition of any term used in the Constitution.
Barack Hussein Obama is still ensconced in the White House last time I checked in spite of your constitutional interpretation.
It does not matter what you think. The powers that be decide what is constitutional, not you.
We already know McCain didn’t want to be President, so if Tagg is telling the truth then the Liberal Messiah effectively ran unopposed in 2008 and 2012. A double Republican forfeiture. F’en awesome.
I am well aware that an illegal alien is ensconced in the WH.
The powers that be decide how treason will be punished or rewarded. They don’t decide what’s constitutional.
“Dad never wanted to be President”
I don’t believe that for one moment. If that were the case, he wouldn’t have run in the primaries against McCain. He certainly wouldn’t have went after the Presidency again in 2012. He has been in the run for the White House for eight years!!!
I don’t know why his family feels the need to lie.
What a bunch of horse manure. Didn't he try to run in 2008 as well?
