Mitt Romney and sour grape

Filed under: Politics — admin @ 12:47 am

On 4/24/2012, when Mitt Romney won the primary victory within his party, he told Americans to “hold on a little longer” as he imagined himself soon-to-be president of the United States.

He accused the President of “false promises and weak leadership.” He looked and acted like he was going to have a sure win, as if the next sensible thing for him to do were to pack up and move.

On 12/24, eight months later, his son Tag Romney said Mitt Romney didn’t really want to win in the first place. “He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life,” Tagg Romney told the Boston Globe. “If he could have found someone else to take his place . . . he would have been ecstatic to step aside.”

Nothing is more absurd than this claim as I remember clearly how hard he had fought during the primary. If it were true, Mitt Romney makes a fool of millions of his supporters and the rest of his republican primary opponents. I bet Newt would like to slap his face or punch out his nose.

I guess it is another classic case of sour grape.
