Reeling from his loss to President Obama and now-notorious ‘gifts’ gaffe, Mr. Romney has been shying away from the public eye. Who knows what he’s up to? He could be skiing in the Alps, lounging in the Bahamas, backpacking across Europe or climbing Mount Everest. Luckily, we have Reddit, the Big Brother of grassroots surveillance.
So we now know he’s not doing any of those things; he’s just pumping gas in La Jolla, California.
Yesterday, this picture above went viral. Uploaded by a passerby native/user named mkb95, the shot of Romney shows a man much different than the one we recognize from the campaign. Hair tasseled, shirt slightly unbuttoned, self-government (pumping gas on his own); this is a truly New Mitt.
