From what I've read
Tagg is a pretty smart guy. Actually sounds smarter than his father--politcally--which is easy--and considering Dad lost the state just recently by [holy crap] 23 points...No...
Now is not your time. But coupled with former GOP Senator Brown saying NO THANKS--this is just going to be another Dem win.
That is just such a frickkin shame.

Tagg's not it...
he's backed out saying the "Timing just isn't right" -- I'm pretty sure he's talking about the Senate race and not his father's joke-telling abilities.
And the list is growing. So far, former Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey, former Sen. Scott Brown, former congressional candidate Richard Tisei and former governor Bill Weld have all backed out.
The GOP isn't having much luck.

It's really tricky for the GOP right now...
They desperately need a victory. And it looked -- for a short time, anyway -- that Scott Brown could give them one right after the 2012 setbacks.
The GOP strategy was to smear Susan Rice, force Obama to go with Kerry as his second choice for State, open up the seat and let Brown step in.
Brown had a campaign organization in place, plenty of name recognition and a fresh record from the U.S. Senate already.
When he backed out, it pretty much killed any chance of the GOP winning the seat and set them up for an automatic defeat in the first election following 2012.
Well, there's always Virginia this November.

I've finally stopped laughing
long enough to post ... ok, I've started this post about 8 times, but I think I can do it this time without breaking out in a hugh belly laugh.
Tagg Romney for any office besides Mormon Bishopric is delusional (being a bishop is pretty delusional, too).
This is the immature punk who thought it was ok to say he wanted to take a swing at the President of the United States, except that the Secret Service would have probably beat the crap out of him so he thought better of it. What a juvenile jerk.
This is the twit who thought it would be great to tweet a picture of "Mom & Pops doing their own laundry" in a hotel basement. If these people were truly frugal, they wouldn't be buying single use boxes of detergent. They should have been buying economy boxes of detergent that would be easy to carry on their "bus" or "aircraft".
This is the nitwit who who felt the need to say his daddy didn't really want to to be president anyway so there :-P.
Kudos to whoever put the kibosh on the ridiculous idea of Tagg Romney running for anything. I hope it was Taggart himself who had a moment of self-realization about his own immaturity and lack of real world experience.

I do wonder
why the MA GOP is having such trouble finding a credible candidate for Senate?
I get Scott Brown has been running practically non-stop and had his a$$ handed to him by Elizabeth Warren in 2012 and he'd rather not go through that again.
The couple of times I saw former Lt Gov Healey as a Romney surrogate, I thought she seemed credible. Maybe she's more wonky than charismatic.
I don't know Mass gopers well enough to know the bench, but why don't they have anyone willing to step forward for the Senate seat? Does anyone have any inside info? Does anyone have any theories? Apparently the special election deadline is fast approaching.

The GOP can't win...
Because to get through the primaries, candidates have to pander to the tea party nut cases. They then have to try to "Etch A Sketch" themselves to look more moderate during the general election but the damage has already been done. This is what the dems were going through back in the 70s and 80s. The Repubs are hopelessly fractured which will keep them out of power for years at this rate, which is good for the nation. We saw what happened when they controlled things from 2001-2009...some of the bleakest years in U.S. history. Now if the dems can only get it together to actually get some things done...
