OMG. There’s another one:
Mitt buying Cheerio’s? This is the weirdest image rehabilitation campaign EVER.
First there was Mitt Romney pumping gas:
Then there was Mitt Romney at Disneyland:
Then there was Mitt Romney at CostCo:
And now we have Mitt Romney at the Pacquiao-Marquez fight:
Am I the only one who finds all of these “he’s just like us” Mitt sightings a bit weird? The Las Vegas fight pic may be the outlier here, but all of the others seem like tone deaf attempts to humanize the Mitt-bot. The same kind of strange stuff we saw during the campaign.
You know, it wouldn’t surprise me one bit to learn Mitt was trying to keep the door open. Or if not Mitt, then Ann. They were that close, I can hear them thinking; with the national mood turning against those Tea Party crazies, Mitt could really have a chance next time!
I can hear Ann whispering in his ear: “Mitt, you could run as the sensible, moderate Republican you always wanted to run as! That you should have run as! But you couldn’t, because of the fringey, white trash base! There’s still a shot, darling! The country’s mood has changed! It’s still our turn!”
I mean, seriously. They’re that out of touch, that insulated from reality. And Mitt is the master flip-flopper, as well as the master of self-delusion.
Nope, a Romney 2016 exploratory committee would not surprise me one bit. Why on earth wouldn’t he, unless all of his Wall Street buddies decided they had better things to do with their money and told him to hit the road?
