Mitt Romney, Barack ObamaMany people who endorsed President Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential race did so not simply because they preferred his policies, but because Mitt Romney seemed more interesting in having the job than doing the job, to paraphrase Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick at the Democratic National Convention.

Well, it seems that we had Mittens all wrong.

According to his son, Tagg Romney, who infamously said that he wanted to take a “swing” at Obama, his father never wanted to be president in the first place:

The Grio reports:

“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 told the Boston Globe in a behind-the-scenes look at the loss of the Romney 2012 campaign.

Despite aggressively running arguably the most costly campaign in American history, Tagg Romney claims that his father “wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life.”

Tagg Romney was a prominent advisor of his dad’s 2012 campaign, and he’d been at his father’s side during his successful run for Massachusetts governor and failed presidential effort in 2008. According to reports, it was Mitt’s poor showing in ’08 that nearly convinced him not to run again.

This is absolutely amazing considering that he found himself on all sides on all issues discussed during the campaign trying to figure out which one would garner him the most votes; in fact, we think the caricature below illustrates exactly how much Mittens wanted to move into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
