Tagg Romney Says His Father Had ‘No Desire’ To Run For President

Mitt Romney

Tagg Romney, son of presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, said in a recent interview that his father had “no desire” to become the President of the United States.

Although Mitt made a dash for the White House earlier this year, apparently his heart wasn’t really in it. At least that’s what Romney’s oldest son Tagg told the Boston Globe in a recent article about his dad’s bid for presidency.

“He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life,” Tagg Romney explained. “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 added, “He is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them. He has deep faith in God and he loves his country, but he doesn’t love the attention.”

According to Yahoo! News, members of Mitt Romney’s family attempted to dissuade him from running for President of the United States. These discussions reportedly took place prior to the 2012 GOP nomination.

Mediaite reports that it was Tagg Romney and his mother Anne who ultimately convinced Mitt that he should make a run for the White House.

Of course, this isn’t the first time one of Mitt Romney’s sons have discussed the former presidential hopeful’s reluctance to run for the presidency. Yahoo! News reports that several of Romney’s offspring discussed the matter with Conan O’Brien over the summer.

Josh Romney said at the time:

“We’re nervous about it. It’s one of those things, our lives are pretty good as they are, and this is one of those things that it’s good for the country for my dad to run, but it’s not necessarily good for us. So we’re going to keep our lives as normal and as consistent as they can possibly be over the next few years.”

    I lost, but I didn't really want it. What a loser! I have no respect for these Romney people, I swear! They might have all the money in the world, but are a bunch of seriously questionable people.

    That is the biggest pile of crap I've ever heard! Who are they kidding? Spent how much money? Don't win, take you toys and go home! These people don't have a clue! Now whose glad he's NOT in the White House?

    Romney actually acted as though he didn't care whether he won or not as he did the last time…..And he is right he was the only one that had a change except for Robio and he wouldn't run.

    How fortunate we are that he lost. Couldn't find some one else to run? I remember seeing about FIVE people on the stage that were willing and able. The truth is , He was convinced that HE was the prophesied Person for the end time, and the New Jerusalem in Mo. where he was to welcome the Christ. [ look it up for yourself in Book of Mormon] All of his followers believed this.

    All negative comments from a bunch of left wing losers- you b*st*rds are pathetic unamerican scum bags. The former USA is gone-it's you marxist americans in the blue states and the real Americans in the Red states. I hope we secede from you commie SOBs.

    What? This kid needs to make an excuse for his father because his father lost? Pathetic group of people. Tell the truth. He lost because the American public did not believe the lies and his disconnection with the average American. That entire family needs to grow up and face reality.

    You are too old to be talking like this. It sounds like it is coming from a foul mouthed kid.

    Doesn't any body in this family tell the truth? Didn't want to run for the office? Gee, well why was he constantly running for 6.5 years and spending millions upon millions of dollars. Can't admit he's a loser, like the fox who cried sour grapes.
    What about the million plus he paid to fix the voting in Colo and other states? Seems to me he wanted that office at any cost.What he didn't count on was how much America despises him.
