Almost-President Mitt Romney Now an Anonymous Teenager

US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney kisses his wife Ann after conceding defeat to President Barack Obama on November 7, 2012 in Boston. Obama swept to re-election, forging history again by transcending a slow economic recovery and the high unemployment which haunted his first term to beat Romney.

Two weeks ago, Mitt Romney was closer than anyone else (except Barack Obama) to becoming the most powerful person on the planet. He was going to revamp the American tax system and revive the economy and control the country’s nuclear arsenal. Now he’s seeing Twilight and grabbing pizza in Del Mar, California, like some anonymous suburban teenage nobody, according to TMZ. He walks around with his wife and “two young men” — perhaps some pair of indistinguishable Romney Boys — hardly noticed by the world. Tomorrow he might go to Taco Bell, try those steak nachos he’s been hearing about. It can be cruel, democracy.
