He meant to (not) do that
Remember the horrifying graphic from Mitt Romney’s transition webpage that showed him as “President-Elect”?
Given his complete lack of qualifications for being president and the fact that he was so completely out of touch with most Americans, the very idea of Romney as “president elect” was enough give Democrats heart palpitations.
As it turns out, at least according to the story that’s being spun by Romney’s family and campaign officials, he didn’t really want to run for president anyway. It was something he did because he got talked into it by his son Tagg and his wife Ann.
Just another trophy to add to the shelf. Another item for his curriculum vitae. But not something he really wanted to do.
