Mitt Romney didn't want to be president anyway

Mitt Romney ‘had no desire to run,’ son says
By Dylan Stableford, Yahoo! News | The Ticket – 3 hrs ago

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.”

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."

Honestly who would want to be a president? Half the country hates you and what can you really achieve? I know it looks good on your CV but that's all.

Some of the job perks and post-job perks are pretty good. I would think that the fundraising/campaigning would be absolute torture and probably keeps a lot of decent people from getting involved.

You weild more power than any man on earth, and after you retire, you make $1 million for every speech you give.

It's a pretty good gig.

The one damper on the whole thing is you have a lot of folks who want to kill you, compared to every other job on earth. But you've also got the best security system on earth.

For god's sakes, we've had the first black President for 4 years, and about a quarter of the country is convinced he wants to ruin America, and nobody's come remotely close to scratching him.

I go with being President is a "good gig."

What would Mitt need with more money. I heard a total worth for him of $200-500 million during the campaign, and I'm betting that's probably low.

Anyways, mission accomplished.
