This piece of crap from the Washington Post is one of the dumbest articles ever written:
A detached Romney tends wounds in seclusion after failed White House bid
The man who planned to be president wakes up each morning now without a plan.
Mitt Romney looks out the windows of his beach house here in La Jolla, a moneyed and pristine enclave of San Diego, at noisy construction workers fixing up his next-door neighbor’s home, sending out regular updates on the renovation. He devours news from 2,600 miles away in Washington about the “fiscal cliff” negotiations, shaking his head and wondering what if.
Gone are the minute-by-minute schedules and the swarm of Secret Service agents. There’s no aide to make his peanut-butter-and-honey sandwiches. Romney hangs around the house, sometimes alone, pecking away at his iPad and e-mailing his CEO buddies who have been swooping in and out of La Jolla to visit. He wrote to one who’s having a liver transplant soon: “I’ll change your bedpan, take you back and forth to treatment.”
It’s not what Romney imagined he would be doing as the new year approaches.
Four weeks after losing a presidential election he was convinced he would win, Romney’s rapid retreat into seclusion has been marked by repressed emotions, second-guessing and, perhaps for the first time in the overachiever’s adult life, sustained boredom, according to interviews with more than a dozen of Romney’s closest friends and advisers.

The article is three pages long but I showed you everything you need to see. This is the basic outline:
1. Mitt Romney is in “seclusion”.
2. He doesn’t have a job.
3. He has lots of visitors.
4. He makes lots of phone calls.
5. He goes places like Disneyland and the gas station.
WaPo sure has a really strange definition of “seclusion”.
Yes, Mitt Romney lost the election. That was less than a month ago. The campaign is over. That means no more rallies and fundraisers. No more strategy meetings or debate preparations. No more speeches.
That stuff was a big part of Mitt Romney’s life for the past two years, so yeah, he has some spare time these days. What exactly do they think he should to be doing right now, holding daily press conferences?
Is this obsession with Mitt’s daily activities gonna be a regular thing like it was with Sarah Palin? It used to be that the media lost interest in losing candidates as soon as they made their concession speech. But when Sarah lost they just couldn’t quit her.
No offense to the Romney family but I really don’t want to see any of them on DWTS or reality TV.
