  1. Or to put it another way Tagg just said “My Dad spent six years putting himself through grueling work, extensive grinding travel, endless glad-handing for money, put all the family under a media spotlight, repeatedly made statements about how he did want to be president so he must have been lying for years and put his own accomplishments ahead of others in his party who actually wanted to be pres.” So if Tagg is telling the truth he just called his dad a colossal, selfish lying, egotistical jerkwad.

    Or Tagg is a really bad loser and a very bad lier. So when is Tagg running for office.

    • “So if Tagg is telling the truth he just called his dad a colossal, selfish lying, egotistical jerkwad.”

      Tagg has **finally** figured out what the rest of us have known since 2011, at least. Glad you caught on, lad.

    • BTW, wasn’t Tagg the one who wanted to beat up Obama for whupping his dad in the 2nd debate? If dad didn’t want to be Pres, then Obama did him a favor!

  2. “Dude’s been running for President since 2006.1994.


    (and perhaps 1968)

  3. Never?

    Way beyond the point of believability.

    As of, say, this past July?

    I’d buy that. God knows I wouldn’t have wanted the damn thing by then.

  4. He hath bought many firms in sore distress,
    Whose fees did the general partners split.
    Did this in Romney seem ambitious?
    When that the rich have cried, Romney hath wept;
    Ambition should have stilled the camera phones.
    Yet Likko says he was ambitious,
    And Likko is an honorable man.

    • You all did love him once, not without cause.
      What cause withholds you then to mourn for him?
      O Fox News! Thou art fled to brutish beasts,
      And pundits have lost their reason. Bear with me.
      My wallet is in the mansion there with Romney,
      And I must pause till it come back to me.

      • There once was a man from Nantucket (well sort of)
        Who kept all his cash in a bucket. ( well a foreign one)
        But his son, named Tagg,
        Ran away with a brag
        And as for the bucket, Nantucket.

  5. Wait, “Mitt” named his kid “Tagg”?

    Good thing he didn’t have twins, they’d be named “Sleeves”.
