Romney and Ann stock up on Christmas supplies on trip to budget store Costco (pics)

Retail therapy can cure many an ailment, and though the Romneys are multi-billionaires, they apparently find their source of comfort in the filled aisles of Costco.

The former Republican presidential candidate and his wife were pictured shopping at their local bulk warehouse near their home in La Jolla, California on Tuesday.

The couple stocked up on bottled water, pretzels, fruit snacks, Dixie cups and paper towels. They also seemed to be preparing for Christmas as their carts had a few rolls of gift wrap and a toy car that will likely be a present for one of their 18 grandchildren.

3. I admit to being a little surprised at how normal their lives seem.

I would have imagined the household help doing things like this.

Who are they fooling?

8. This is hilarious. Who are these people? They must be on a reform their image jaunt advised by his

lawyers. It seems like a get acquainted with the real world course so he can run again, " for Pete's sake". It's too late to remake your soul, Mittens.

Maybe he's on the down low while the stink of his huge lose is less noticeable so his Country Club friends won't have to smell it.

How odd. We know that the Romney's live in a different world than the rest of us 99%.

10. So. They drink that elitist socialist liberal Arrowhead gourmet water?

How fancy-dancy sweetheart socialist is that? What's wrong with good old-fashioned Republican-polluted scuzzwater, that Republican industrialists have fouled all over the fruited plains and expect the 99% to drink.

Eitist latte-lapping, Arrowhead-guzzling, garage-elevator-riding Republicans like Willard (R) think regular-old American water is BENEATH THEM.

14. Arrowhead belongs to Nestle, an awful corporation.

Dixie Cups are from a Koch Bros company, of course.

Must be nice to support such wonderful companies!

12. If they were regular Costco shoppers they'd know to fill empty boxes with their smaller items

This reeks of 'see, I told you I was a regular guy'.

13. This news is almost as big as Donald Trump shopping at K-Mart several years ago

 

At least it wasn't Wal Mart.
