If you were worried about poor ol’ Mitt Romney and that whole presidential election loss thing, he’s fine. Great, even. Apparently, according to his son Tagg Romney, he didn’t even really want to be President….

While speaking with the Boston Globe about his father’s campaign, Tagg had this to say about his father’s political ambitions:

“He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. He had no desire to . . . run,” said Tagg, who worked with his mother, Ann, to persuade his father to seek the presidency.

“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.”

However, this news is not very surprising if  you take a close look at Romney’s campaign: As the Globe points out, it was Romney’s failure to get personal with the public that led to his demise , and we cannot forget the now-infamous 47% speech shows that he really wasn’t even trying to win the support of those without fat wallets and vacation homes around the world.

Well… I guess it’s a good thing Obama won!
