Romney didn´t want
to run for president,
son says

Agence France Presse, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 12/24/2012 6:52:16 AM

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. After failing to win the 2008 Republican nomination, Romney told his family he would not run again and had to be persuaded to enter the 2012 White House race by his wife Ann and son Tagg.

Comments:
This is just the opinion of one son. The credibility and validity are anchored in pure speculation equal to the fact it is just the opinion of one son.

Son is surely trying to rationalize why his winner of a father was defeated by such a loser. And, how a decent man who embodied all of America´s proclaimed values could be depicted as an oddity by Obama, the least American of presidents that I can recall.

Nobody on the GOP bench was ready to run and Romney probably saw the cast of characters he would be up against and took the challenge. Who knows,maybe Romney didn´t want to save the Olympics either but he did.

Sorry kiddo, I don´t quite believe this. I think whatever the Chicago mob has going for it is working so well regular guys are terrified of winning against them. We can stop kidding ourselves. Something very evil is going on in our country with elections. So far the only person I know of that isn´t afraid of these bozos is Sarah. Seriously.

There is no reason to doubt this. Romney certainly did not act like someone hungry for the presidency. In any case, he ran an incredibly incompetent campaign and lost. Lots of people here and elsewhere saw it coming and tried to raise the alarm, only to be ignored or told they were damaging morale and providing aid and comfort to the opposition.

He did not, as he claimed afterwards, lose because Obama bribed and mobilized his base; presidents and other politicians -those who want to win- always bribe and mobilize their base. They always round them up and bus them to the polls. They always commit as much voter fraud as they can get away with. Does Romney really not know this? What kind of a world does he think he is living in if he doesn´t know such elementary things about electoral politics? Such naivete makes one wonder.

Now that the mainstream media have become nothing but the propaganda arm of the Democrats, no Republican will ever win the presidency who is not serious about winning and who does not run a competent campaign that can punch through the protective bubble the media always provide Democratic candidates.

Sarah Palin isn´t afraid to take the creeps on because her faith and trust is in a higher authority, and she knows totally in her heart that He will protect her and hers.

The idea that Romney didn´t really want to run? Really Tagg? So that wasn´t really him fund raising all over the country for over half his term, when he should have been doing his job as Gov. of MA? And that wasn´t him running all the snark to undercut his opposition in the primaries?

The truth is, I think he wanted it as badly as Al Gore did. Only the dems didn´t have their voter fraud machine in place then or Gore would have won.

Here´s what happened folks. A year or so ago Romney said at the dinner table that he didn´t think he would run for President. That his previous attempt was not successful so he says he doesn´t feel like doing it again. Then when he and family realize that there ain´t much to choose from the Republican losers he and his brain trust decide why not do it again. I think that is what happened and it is a far cry from NOT WANTING TO RUN PERIOD. Sounds like most candidates to me.

I saw a couple of interviews a few months before the election where Ann stated that he was not planning on running again. She asked him if he could fix the the economy, he said he knew he could. So they urged him to run. So this is not some new revelation.

So, he was perfectly willing to run hard against Republicans, and practcially call Newt the devil, while Newt was the only one with a sharp anti liberal message.

Then he kills newt, and calls obama a "nice guy." Go figure. I wish he hadn´t run either. If we had lost with Newt, at least we´d have gone down swinging with a very plain anti liberal message.

#8 - no Republican will win the Presidency again because they only run RINOs, and why vote for a RIanO when you can vote for the real thing.

The Repubs are going to have a very difficult time getting back the many they have insulted and disintermediated in 2012. If Boehner ends up Speaker again they lose the House in 2014, and zippy has 2 years of party down to finish the destruction.

Spot on #1. This election revealed two things. 1, How dumbed down this country is. 2. How corrupt the election process ( counting votes) is now. Mitt should have won by reagan proportions but I don´t think reagan himself could have done any better with the way society is now. As far as Mitt not wanting to run?? I can see him being a little reluctant because of his wealth and values that I´m sure he knows the country is lacking.

To paraphrase Churchill, Romney was the worst candidate--except for all the others.

Next time we have a lot of great choices, all of whom were too young this time.

B.S. The Mutt couldn´t help himself. He´s been running for President after he decided not to get trounced in a re-election bid for Guv of MA. For someone so disinterested in running, he did some dirty tricks against his primary opponents... or was that his flying monkeys?

He had all the charm of a refrigerator box.

Tagg, don´t. He wanted to run, he was working on it from 2008 on. He ran a decent campaign, but he had some really bad advisers. That and the media was more against him than even George W. Bush. He couldn´t say anything without it being reported as a "gaffe".

Add to that the "purists" who sat out and there was enough wiggle room to pull of systematic vote fraud. The Democrats won by cheating. To make excuses for you father is to give the Democrats cover. Just stop.

#11 - As a Romney supporter, I was in denial about the nastiness at first, but was then attacked personally & viciously by the #1 Romneybot - and the attack was out of nowhere and completely without merit. It was very strange - never has a Republican candidate had such a team of barracudas here. Some of the anti-Roms were equally as vicious, though - just less seemingly organized and professional.

And it is SO laughable to think one of the other front-runners had a better chance. Sanctorum - surely you jest! And Newtie is brilliant, but he would have been pulverized to smithereens, I have no doubt.



As for the article, Tagg may be exaggerating, but I´ll take his word for it.

The Romneys (son´s big mouth)and the Bushes (big boogaloo about a pregnancy) all need to go away. The republican party needs a cleansing and renewal. Right now, they will never win another election until they are willing to get down in the mud with the press and dems on a daily basis.

If you wannna be on the up and up and take the high road, then prepare to lose for a loooong time. Nasty begets nasty. It´s the only thing these progressive nation killers understand and respect.

Dittos, #31. The GOP has to stop playing squeaky clean...the media wants to broadcast a spectacle, a fight...instead, Republicans give them logical argument and 87-point plans for prosperity. Start calling Dems stupid, drop a few F-bombs, promise thirty-something women a "Daddy government", and the low info types will being to take your politics seriously. They´ll never bother to know what you actually do after elected.

Repubs seem to be strong when fighting Repubs and weak when fighting Dems. Strange. On LCom during the primaries I actually thought the viciousness and nasty attacks from Romneybots against Palin,etc would be a good indication of how the election would go..that Romney would fight. Nooooo. Again, strong against Repubs and weak against Dems. sigh. We need a cleansing, as others have noted.

PARIS: The United States on Sunday pledged $10 million to bolster border security in Moldova at a time when concerns are rising about divisions within the country over a trade deal with Europe and Russia´s intervention in neighbouring Ukraine. The pro-western Moldavan government is pushing ahead with an EU trade deal by the summer despite the increasing debate on whether to integrate with Europe or stick with former Soviet master Russia. It was the rejection of the same EU deal in November by former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich that triggered street protests against his rule after he balked under the threat

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

Early national polling is supporting the prevailing view in Washington that Democrats are in trouble in the 2014 midterm elections. While Democrats are more popular than the GOP among the general public, the party faces a number of challenges in November. First, there´s an enthusiasm gap. Typically, but not always, Republicans vote at higher rates than Democrats in congressional elections. And at this early stage, that seems likely to happen again, perhaps at an even greater rate than usual. One telling indicator came in December, when the Pew Research Center found that Republicans are much more optimistic about their party´s electoral

Thirty-three years ago today, on the thirtieth day of the third month of 1981, a gunman attempted to assassinate President Ronald Wilson Reagan. This is not only a major historical event; it is also an American healthcare first: the only time a president was shot in office and survived. According to a beautifully written book on the subject, Rawhide Down: The Near Assassination of Ronald Reagan by Del Quentin Wilber, the president was closer to death than most of us ever realized.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because?

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K. Daly, 21, alleges malicious prosecution, six counts of assault and battery and failure to appropriately train ABC agents in the suit which names the state and seven agents involved in her arrest. (Snip) Daly claimed she attempted to flee from the agents because neither were in uniform, one pulled a gun, and the other tried to smash her car window with a flashlight. ´My

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or
