Romney’s Son Says Dad Is A Problem Solver

Mitt Romney's oldest son says that although his father has a reputation for being robotic and out of touch, he's really just the kind of guy who, deep down, wants to lend a helping hand.

Mitt Romney’s oldest son says that although his father has a reputation for being robotic and out of touch, he’s really just the kind of guy who, deep down, wants to lend a helping hand.

In a new e-book written by Politico correspondent Mike Allen and author and journalist Evan Thomas, Tagg Romney compared his dad to the neighborhood handyman.

Here’s an excerpt:

‘In his spare time, he wants to solve problems,’ Tagg Romney said in an interview. ‘He wants to figure out, when he comes over to your house, he wants to figure out, “Well, your boiler’s not working. How are we going to fix the boiler?” and “Have you noticed that some of your trees are dying out there? Why are your trees dying? What’s causing that? Can we figure that out, and can we go down to the hardware store and see if they’ve got something to fix that?” And all of a sudden you see him driving a tractor in your backyard, and he’s pulling stuff up. He’s like, “Oh, these rocks were doing that.” I mean, that’s just who he is.”‘

The book, a detailed account of Romney’s campaign so far, portrays the GOP frontrunner as a candidate who worries about committing gaffes in public, and is reluctant to open up about himself on the trail.
