The moment is being billed as Romney’s reemergence, but the truth is he never really left

Ghost of Mitt Romney, Hanging Around Since November, to Appear at CPAC

Feb 21, 2013 4:45 AM EST

His upcoming CPAC speech is being billed as a reemergence, but Romney never really left. He and his presidential loss have been hanging over the GOP since November. David Freedlander on why he just won’t go away.


He’s alive!

For months, Mitt Romney has been little more than a specter haunting the GOP, tucked away in La Jolla, California, never appearing on television, and rubbing shoulders with his fellow Republicans only on the rarest of occasions.

But nearly four months after Romney conceded the presidential election with a meek send-off in a half-filled Boston convention center, he is venturing out again, slated for a speaking spot at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.

The moment is being billed as Romney’s reemergence, but the truth is he never really left. Even though he hasn’t been seen, Romney has been hovering, ghostlike, over the Republican Party since November.

The phantasm was there in Sen. Marco Rubio’s response to the State of the Union address. The Florida Republican assured listeners that Democrats, just like Republicans, love America and talked about living in “the same working-class neighborhood I grew up in.” That was contra Romney, who reminded campaign audiences that his voters, at least, were motivated by love of country. He also had trouble living down his car elevator and his stated enjoyment of firing people.
