Tagg Romney: Mitt ‘Wanted To Be President Less Than Anyone I’ve Met’

Tagg Romney said his father “wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life,” according to the Boston Globe.

“He had no desire,” the eldest Romney son said. “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 told the paper that his father was resistant to running because of his unsuccessful 2008 bid for president.

The oldest Romney son was an instrumental figure in his father’s political career. He served as an adviser to the 2012 campaign, and has worked on previous campaigns.

    This is the worst bunch of Malarkey I’ve ever heard, Mitt wanted to be president more than anyone I’ve ever seen running for office. His Son Tagg…(who the hell names their son Tagg?), needs to get a damn job & start paying his share of taxes so we can get this country moving forward again!
