The Biggest Lie of Campaign 2012

No, it's not "you didn't build that."  It's not the story that Jeep is moving to China.  It's not even that Obama is a Kenyan.  Here it is:

Mitt's Son Says He Never Wanted to be President Anyway...At least, that's what Tagg Romney says in this new Boston Globe report on what went wrong with Romney's campaign. While the rest of the piece seems to say the problems lay in the Romney campaign's lack of technical advantage, and refusal to introduce the world to Mitt Romney, the human being, this little morsel from the Republican's son points to a larger problem:

“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 spent the best part of a decade incessantly campaigning for the office.  He spent tens of millions of his own money.  But he didn't want the job.  He wanted it less than anyone his son ever met, probably including Seamus the dog, who wanted to be President far more than Romney.  Man, these people will lie about anything.

That's the petulance of a rejected boy who after having a girl tell him she isn't going to the dance with him, stamps his feet, turns beet red and shouts, 'FINE I NEVER LIKED YOU ANYWAY!'
