He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life. 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 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.

That White House is probably sour anyway.

Well if he's that indecisive and easily coerced he probably would have been a crappy prez anyway.

Do the Romneys have no shame? The billions of dollars they spent running for an office they never wanted to run for could have fed half the world!

Yeah, he didn't want it...he just ran for the office for 8 years.

His other son, Hideandseek, concurred.

The job did not meet his salary requirements.

More proof that our electoral system is just a hobby for rich dilettantes.

He wanted to add President of the Free World to his resume.....so bad you could smell it!!
~ comment by Narfertiti on Huffington Post
He so didn't want the job ~ he only wrote an acceptance speech...

Your Father bothered us for ten years running for Prez, spent countless billions in the process, made major fools out of every member of his family, exposed corporate greed like never before, told the world how the rich really feel about the poor and the middle class, and all along, he really didn't want to be President?
You are equal, in your absurdity, to any heights your dad achieved in the area of the absurd.
Sounds to me like SOUR GRAPES.
