Post-election Mitt Romney pumping gas

I almost, ALMOST feel sorry for him.



WTF am I saying? No, I don't.

BTW, I didn't take the picture. A Redditor named mkb95 did.

63. Welcome to DU, Prometheus_unbound!

Glad you're here. Interesting - a different side of mitt.

Never mind. I'm just grateful and relieved that he didn't win. Guess hair pomade won't be coming back into style in January after all. If that's how his hair looks, "unplugged" shall we say, no wonder he feels he has has to use hair-slick to keep it in line. Too bad the voters were disheveled-beyond-control... they turned out to be even more unruly than his hair!

Let's make sure politicians like him are kept OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!!!!

He's a well known cheapskate despite being worth millions. According to his bio, he drives an older modest car.

Funny enough, I believed Queen Anne when he bought shirts from Costco. He's that dude.

Shivering underneath a newspaper, curled up around a half-empty bottle of milk.

At least he appears to know which hole the gas goes in. But then, the scope of the picture is too narrow to show his team of advisers off to the side.

45. I can't judge his disheveled appearance

I'd hate to see a picture of me pumping gas on a windy day.

His "pissed-off" expression may be because he spotted the photographer.

I would think that by now he's rationalized the loss, and is starting to relax into his retirement. After, of course, filing an amended tax return to claim the deductions that he ignored so he'd have to pay 15%. Now he's free to let his real tax drop to 12%, 10%, whatever his accountants can get.

61. I think his staff probably all quit in disgust.

Particularly after he canceled all of the campaign's credit cards the minute he conceded, and thereby left much of his campaign staff stranded without a plane flight or even a cab fare home.

Just a last act of dickness from the ultimate dick candidate.

62. Welcome to DU, MyOpinion-2!

Glad you're here! I went back and found this after seeing another wrongney photo taken from his Facebook page, where he's hugging her ladyship and he looks all rumpled - hair disheveled and in a t-shirt, as though he just woke up. Not a 10,000-dollar suit to be seen, and there's no hair-slick or starched creased jeans. I'm wondering if this is the real mitt around the house. A slob. We all only got to see his boardroom-to-private-jet side. Or maybe this is his "fuck it, I don't give a damn..." costume?
