That’s Okay, Mitt Didn’t Want to Be President Anyway

Mitt Romney, Ann Romney, Presidential Election

Mitt Romney never wanted to be the president, anyway.

That’s what his oldest son, Tagg, told the Boston Globe, saying he and his mother, Ann, talked Mitt into running for office. Is it any wonder, then, that Mitt Romney seemed almost relieved to be giving that concession speech?

He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. 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, but he has deep faith in God and he loves his country, but he doesn’t love the attention.

Tagg Romney said he and his mother, Ann, told his father that it was time to put his own personal reservations aside so he could focus on the needs of the United States. Ann Romney, throughout the campaign, said she was one of her husband’s biggest cheerleaders. She initially didn’t want him to run again, as he’d also lost in 2008.

Mitt isn’t saying if he wants to run again in four years, but he’d like to use the lessons he learned on the campaign trail to help the next GOP candidate — that is, if the Republicans want to listen.
