Romney had no desire to be president or to campaign for the office. He would've been ecstatic to step aside, per son, Tagg Romney, Dec, 2012, Boston Globe, Atlantic

Dec. 2012 articles:

He wanted to be president less than anyone I'd 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." 

"So, yeah, that might explain why Mitt lost. Not wanting the job you need to publicly campaign for more than a year to get"... more than a year to get"..................... 
 

12/23/2012, "Mitt's Son Says He Never Wanted to be President Anyway," Atlantic Wire, Connor Simpson
...........  
"If you thought the tale of how Mitt Romney lost the general election was already told, you would be wrong. Because there is so much left to tell, like how Mitt 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."

So, yeah, that might explain why Mitt lost. Not wanting the job you need to publicly campaign for more than a year to get is step one in the "Not Getting Elected Guide for Dummies" book. Again, the rest of the mammoth piece, which you really should read, paints a larger picture of the struggle between Mitt's inner circle and his campaign advisors over whether they should humanize Mitt, which was ultimately their downfall."... 

Dec. 2012 Boston Globe article:

12/23/2012, "The story behind Mitt Romney’s loss in the presidential campaign to President Obama," Boston Globe, Michael Kranish

Comment: Romney is very lucky he's not in jail having run a fraud. He's still around because the media likes "Republicans" who've lost or who have no chance of winning in the future.
