Where’s Mitt Romney On Inauguration Day? In California With ‘No Big Plans’

Where is Mitt Romney?

President Obama is in chilly Washington DC for his second inauguration today, but many of us have forgotten that his place behind the podium could have been filled by another: His Republican challenger Mitt Romney. So what is Romney up to on inauguration day? Hanging out in sunny California with “no big plans.”

NBC News reports that the former presidential contender is spending Inauguration Day at his home in La Jolla, California, enjoying the sun and a forecasted high of 73 degrees.

An aide said that the former Massachusetts governor and his wife, Ann Romney, have “no big plans.”

Of course, the aide was inevitably asked whether or not Mitt Romney had any plans to watch President Obama’s second inaugural address today. The reply was: “Doubtful.”

The LaJolla Patch reports that Romney has been keeping a very low profile since his election loss last November. He’s been spotted in public a handful of times since then, meeting with incumbent President Obama because it looks good to the press, and a viral sighting of the former governor pumping gas, because the Internet found it hilarious.

(It was pretty funny).

Romney’s son Tagg told The Boston Globe in December that his dad was never really enthused about becoming the president anyway.

“He wanted to be president less than anyone I’ve met in my life,” Tagg told the newspaper. “He is a very private person who loves his family deeply and wants to be with them, but he has deep faith in God and he loves his country, but he doesn’t love the attention.”

Which either means that Romney is a sore loser, or that he was a GOP puppet (something that many Conservatives feared all along). Which do you think?

    Romney son is lying. Mitt wanted to be president more than anyone, Mitt is a sore loser, What a stupid thing for the son to say, I guess that means all of Romney's campaign people were wasting their time and money. Unreal!

    Mitt, a Mormon, was so desperate to become President. It was an old church prophecy that a Mormon would become President, and Mitt and Ann were utterly convinced that it would become reality through them. They were shattered to the point of disbelief when they lost to Obama.
    Mormons also believe in their scriptures, which states that black skin is a curse from God.
    So where is Mitt and Ann today? In their Temple, doing this:-
