(Huffington Post)   Mitt Romney didn't want to run for president, and 9 more of the 12 family members he polled also thought it was a bad idea. However, sons Tagg, Bapp, and Foinsapp convinced him it was a good idea   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 93

The family portrait is like a collection of stills from the old Batman show.

That is such fng revisionist history. Mitt was elected as Governor of Massachusetts in 2002. By 2004, he had taken a HARD right turn, reversing his opinion on choice, gay rights, stem cell research and taxes.

It was very clear that he considered being our governor a stepping stone to the Presidency.

Here's a Texan politician that could run for presidency:

Mitt Romney and his family took an internal poll on whether he should run for president once more. Twelve family members cast ballots. Ten said no.

sheesh...and 60+ million people voted for a guy who didn't even want the job. Awesome.

I remember this! It goes:

"Yeah? So WHAT? I didn't want to .......... ANYway!"

Parents of small children, ya with me?

1. Good to know that in repub politics two votes outweigh ten. The other Romneys must have been given the wrong date for the vote.
2. Of course there was a better candidate for president of the United States, and Romney knows it. His name is Barack Obama.

Forget small children.  I didn't even WANT to date my dream girl who eventually married someone else in the first place!

I'm just glad I'm not disappointed and neither is Mitt.

Bapp didn't have the two forms of ID that Romney family votes require, and Pimm was scared away by a Black Panther (which may actually have been a coat)

Which is sort of sad, considering how hard he had to work at getting the Governor's seat. Then again, for Romney it was less about the office, but more about the power to swing dollars into the right hands, which has been his MO for a good number of years. Romney has never been one to lead, so much as bird dog cash, and steer said dollars into the hands of those who put him in front. From the UMaine board days, to the Olympics, to the Governor's seat, the one true sign for his leadership has been "For Sale."

Koltrigg has the same name as a double murderer, so her name was purged from the rolls and Missoureden accidentally voted for Pat Buchanan.

Over the Christmas break of 2010, Mitt Romney and his family took an internal poll on whether he should run for president once more. Twelve family members cast ballots. Ten said no. One of the 10 was Mitt Romney himself.

THEN WHY THE FARK DID YOU HAVE A VOTE?!?!?!

Seriously, what's the point of having the family vote if you're going to let 1/5 of the voters make the decision for you, even to the point of going against your OWN choice?

This just makes him look even stupider.

BTW Subby, didn't realize that Foinsap was a Don Martin/Mad Magazine thing. Nice call.

Those grapes are probably sour huh Mitt?
 
2013-07-02 02:55:38 PM
No.  Mitt Romney's problem has been, and will be, that he wanted to prove that he was a better politician than his father.

The man has some serious daddy issues.
 
2013-07-02 02:56:35 PM
No wonder he didn't trust Nate Silver, he wouldn't even listen to his own family.

Given that R-Money is a massive narcissist, I find it hard to believe that he didn't want to be President.

Why run if you yourself don't feel that you should ? The man's got some real issues ....

If there is a God, Mitt Romney will run again in 2016. For the lulz.
 
2013-07-02 03:05:55 PM
If this is to be believed Romney took on this odious task because he believed that he needed to save the country from itself.  The arrogance is mind-boggling.

Tagg: You won 10-2! You don't have to run!
Mitt: YAY!!!
Ann: Karl Rove's on the phone. You have to run anyway.
MITT: Oh, but I was going to set off some fireworks to celebrate.
 
2013-07-02 03:10:44 PM
Motherfarker, what is this shiat that he "didn't want to run?"  When 9 out of 12 members tell you it's a bad idea, and you run anyway, you want to run.  He's was just a core-less, undisciplined politician who ran a shiatty campaign and is still in shock that  his information vacuum was wholly inaccurate.
 
2013-07-02 03:11:05 PM
Even up until the day before he made the announcement, he was looking for excuses to get out of it.

Holy sh*t.

THEN YOU SHOULDA MANNED UP, WILLARD AND SAID NO.
 
2013-07-02 03:12:41 PM
To be fair, though, he did run his campaign as if he were deliberately trying to lose, so this does explain that.

Not being able to man up and say no is a great attribute in a President.

I know this is supposed to be funny, but I get a real nasty visceral reaction to the idea of being treated to eighteen campaign months of the goddamn psychopathic Romney family.

I'm gonna go for Gohmert/Bachmann for 2016.

Later that poll was unskewed and showed he won in a landslide.

He didn't write a concession speech, just to show them how much he didn't want to be running.
