Well, we realize the hand of time has writ and fate has had her say, but when we ran across this we felt it only fair to come forward and add our support in the interests of being fair and balanced and to avoid the impression that we called our support too early. In your FACE Karl!
Mitt Romney didn't really want to win, his son Tagg Romney claims in a recent interview. "He wanted to be president less than anyone I've met in my life," Romney told the Boston Globe. "And it looks like the American people felt the same way," He added.
"If he could have found someone else to take his place . . . he would have been ecstatic to step aside." OK we may have to give this one to Mitty because at least he kept Newt out of the race. And Perry. And Santorum. And Bachmann. That's got to be worth something.
The oldest Romney son said his father is a "private person" who wanted to help put the country back on its feet, but hated the limelight that came with presidential politics. When a reporter pointed out that Romney had spent two presidential election cycles seeking the nomination and campaigning, Tagg replied, "I said he was a private person, not a smart one."
Tagg Romney told the newspaper that he and his mother Ann had to convince Mitt Romney to run for the presidency. Apparently Mrs. Romney was under the mistaken impression that there was a horse boarding facility on the White House grounds. Tagg said he just wanted his father out of the house. "You don't know how hard it is to be around him all the time," Tagg said. "Every once in a while he'd offer to buy us out of the family. And if he offers you a seat at the table? He's not inviting you to dinner. Guy's a 24/7 mergers and acquisitions walking talking nightmare, know what I mean?"
Actually we don't. And we'd prefer to keep it that way. Thanks anyway Tagg. Oh, and have yourself a very leveraged Christmas,
