Mitt Romney visits Disneyland, is spotted by everyone

Mitt Romney visited Disneyland today, and while many did their best to outdo the snarky comments they’d made earlier in the day when a photo of the former GOP candidate pumping gas made the rounds, others were sincerely thrilled to see Romney back in the public eye.

  • J Riesbeck

    Wish I was there. ((sigh))

  • TwitWit

    Color me jealous.

  • http://www.jayriley.com Jay Riley

    Glad to see him getting some well earned rest. This may be a blessing in disguise…I mean just look at the mess the other guy will inherit in January. :)

    • waltzingmtilda

      Ha!!!

    • Penmar

      Wonder if the dem/libs will be blaming Romney at the end of the next 4 yrs or if it will still be Bush’s fault…oh wait, they can still blame everything on the House.

    • http://twitter.com/IluvHermes Michele

      Yeah, the mess he made 100 times worse. What will the country look like four years from now? It’s frightening!

      • http://www.jayriley.com Jay Riley

        Well 47% of the voters (some voting twice) have spoken and it’s not Mitt’s problem. Wonder how many folks in 2016 will admit to having voted for Obama?

  • JimmyNeutron

    People can say what they want, and he wasn’t my first choice – but Romney is a decent man and would have made an excellent President.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Indeed.

    • waltzingmtilda

      Jimmy, was reading this and thinking similar. When Mitt became the candidate, i said “Ok…this is what we have to work with.” When he picked Ryan as the VP, I spent an entire day grinning so hard that it hurt. As time went on I came to truly believe that he would make a great President. I am sad for our Country, but I am happy for Mitt that he seems to be just enjoying life now.

      • Vennoye

        I also am sad for our country that he is not going to be our president. Think the country would be better off with his business and personal skills. Just wish the family the very best!

      • http://www.facebook.com/steph.vt.9 Steph VT

        I agree and believe that as a country we missed a golden opportunity to have a good, decent person who was willing and eager to lead us. I liked that several corrupt world leaders were rooting against him. That is very telling. How I wish I were hearing “President-Elect Romney” on all the news shows.

        • machtyn

          I call it “Greatness Averted.” Romney was my first choice. We will never have a candidate of his stature again. Never in our lifetime. Why? Because why would any decent person go up against the GOP, the DNC, and the media like that? It just won’t happen.

      • fortunamajor

        America chose Woodrow Wilson instead of Abraham Lincoln. We’ve chosen our path. I don’t want to hear why the price of admission goes up, or the price of gas or food rises or why we no longer have coal companies to provide us heat in the winter or why your doctor has closed his practice.
        We get what we paid for.

        • freddy

          and even that might be an insult to Woody Wilson.

        • RalphEllison

          Woodrow Wilson? You must get your information from Glen Beck, former DJ and current clown.

          Abraham Lincoln? Romney is a good man, who was forced to flip flop and lie to appeal to psycho loser Rethugs. But Abraham Lincoln – our GREATEST president? Come on, man . . . .

          • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

            Lincoln was also the GREATEST Republican President.

          • lainer51

            unfortunately all politicians lie, but to suggest Romney is a flip flopper and liar w/o mentioning the liar-in-chief in the W.H. shows just how biased and polarized you are….

          • RalphEllison

            No, the President is nothing like Romney. And the country knows it, that is why he was re-elected.as the first Dem since Roosevelt to get a back to back majority of the votes.

          • http://twitter.com/Daisy761 Daisy76

            The country knows it? No, most of those who re-elected him were uneducated, uninformed moochers and immigrants expecting amnesty.

          • GTFOBigGovt

            You must have a reading problem. Americans chose Woodrow Wilson: America’s Worst and First Fascist President over Lincoln and now chose Obama: America’s Knockoff of the Worst Fascist President (and in line after TR & FDR due to sheer incompetence and laziness).

            Get the analogy now?

            On his WORST day, the honorable Mitt Romney is more American Patriot than any of those 4 ego maniacal jackasses.

          • RalphEllison

            Ummm, yes I got the analogy, and it was weak and not at all truthful. But, now I see you slammed TR and FDR as well, flying in the face of most historians.

            I don’t have a reading problem, but you clearly have a mental problem. You would probably be right next to Mitt at prep school, cutting the hair of the poor unfortunate gay young man that Mitt and his cronies decided to bully.

          • http://twitter.com/TheAngieNC2 Angie (D)

            See that hair cut story — a total lie — the guy’s sisters said there was no such hair cut — but of course idiots who vote for a guy who admits to smoking pot & snorting coke throughout high school & college would believe it.

          • RalphEllison

            http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/05/sister-of-alleged-romney-target-has-no-knowledge-of-any-bullying-incident/

            See my response to Chris McKeever. And, President Obama never said that he smoked pot and snorted coke “throughout college.” That is a complete lie. In fact, he said he tried coke occasionally in high school. He further said he concentrated on improving himself physically while in college.

            But, lying is natural for you “conservatives.” I bet you say you are a Christian as well. Sure you are . . . .

          • Cj Edwards

            Obama lies about Obamacare. Wake up!

          • ceemack

            I wouldn’t be too sure about that reading problem. That young man’s family (he’s passed away) denies the incident took place as so breathlessly described in the “old” media. And FDR has long been criticized for his pro-Soviet stance during WWII and, more recently, for his anti-business economic policies.

          • RalphEllison

            Oh, you mean this story regarding the family:

            http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/05/sister-of-alleged-romney-target-has-no-knowledge-of-any-bullying-incident/

            Show me where the family denied that the incident took place. Let me answer for you – you can’t. Two sisters said they weren’t aware of the story. And the family statement put out does not deny the story. They say the portrayal of John Lauber was “factually incorrect,” but the family did not say what was incorrect (but it appears to be targeted to the allegation that John Lauber was gay).

            Lastly, Romney himself NEVER denied the incident, only that he did not recall it, and went on to apologize for his high school pranks. Said pranks included wearing a real Michigan state trooper uniform and pulling drivers over – truly psycho.

          • hwy505

            If you deny an incident that is frivolous as well as a lie you bring credence to the nonsense. Politics 101. A psycho is a person who buys into anything and everything that supports their own hatred of another – that would be you Ralphie boy!

    Good for him. Having fun w/his kids and grandkids. I think I know now why he’s not fighting the election results…the campaign put enough strain on his family and doesn’t want them to endure any more than necessary.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/YN4XMUN6BACEJMKRO2OJISINKE LC

      I’ve been thinking how the media could be made accountable for such biased reporting… I’ve stopped buying newspapers and stopped watching ABC, NBC, and CBS (except Fox News). If all of us do that, it may make a difference. Naive thought?

      • Terry

        ABC/NBC/CBS broke election law by not having Obama on at the end of each ‘news’cast saying “I’m Barack Obama, and I approve this message”.

  • stephaniejane81

    hmmm, these pics give me some happiness in the middle of my frustrations of the election results. glad he’s able to enjoy his family and enjoy himself. He is a decent man and he would have been a great president. He deserves some rest and relaxation after the hell he’s been through the past year and 1/2.

  • pairadimes

    Mitt Romney is a good and decent man with strong personal values who might have been a very good president, but these qualities apparently make for an unelectable candidate these days. We have the President the progressive media made sure we would have, and four more years of this will not end well.

    • Penmar

      I think one of the things that tick me off about the media is that they don’t get fined for their outright lies, advertisers have to comply with telling the truth but the media can edit things, make things up and get away with it.

      • Katepatate

        Don’t support their advertisers.

        • Penmar

          The problem with that is that I’d have to watch their crappy show to figure out who the advertisers are and I don’t think I can do that.

    I may be upset that he did not win, but it’s good to see that he’s able to let it go and have a well deserve rest and enjoyment with his lovely wife and family. They deserve a long break.

    I am glad to see Mitt out enjoying time with the family. It lets people see he is just an ordinary down to earth guy. Sad the media painted him different. i truly believe he would have been an amazing president. I bet if a lot on the left had seen more things like this of him, It might have been able to persuade some more to vote for him. Seeing him on a level they can more relate to.

  • Jolene

    Bravo for him!

  • http://twitter.com/TheAngieNC2 Angie (D)

    I will never understand how this man was not elected. He killed it in
    the debates. He killed it at the Al E. Smith Dinner. He was confident and stately and presidential. He always spoke about what “WE” can do together, not in terms of “I, Me.” The crowds at his events were bursting at the seams with enthusiasm and over capacity, with many waiting in the cold & rain to see him. Obama’s events were anemic and poorly attended. And yet, here we are — a total of 400,000 votes in the combined states of FL, OH, NH & VA and we lost a really great opportunity as a country.

    I’ve concluded that this nation could simply could not approve of Mitt Romney — and that’s a reflection on the nation, not the man.

      • Michelle

        Romney had nothing to do with Obamacare and he was 100% against it. He passed a healthcare law in Massachusetts while he was governor, that doesn’t mean he agrees with it being a Federal law. Because unlike Obama, Romney understands the differences between state’s rights and the Federal government. Each state is free to address their healthcare concerns as they see fit (as MA did), but it is not the Federal government’s responsibility to run healthcare. Indeed, it’s a violation of the 10th Amendment and yeah, the Supreme Court got it wrong. Romney stood for repealing Obamacare because the Fed. government had no right passing it in the first place, and THAT is why the GOP stood behind him.

      • stephaniejane81

        I’m pretty sure that Obama could get an idea for a socialist healthcare law from many other socialist countries around the world. He didn’t need to look at a STATE healthcare law. Romney never said that the FEDERAL government should do exactly what the MA healthcare law did. He said it could be used as an example for other states across the country. He explained that over and over again. and he didn’t agree with everything in the healthcare law. he vetoed several parts of it, but was overruled.

    • Paul C.

      Angie, you can’t BEAT Santa Claus and by that I mean the 47%.

      • Chrissy the Hyphenated

        I am one of the 47% (Social Security Disability) and my kids are in the military, which I think gets them counted in that number as well. NONE OF US VOTED FOR OBAMA!!!

        I am 100% certain that Barack Obama did not WIN the election. His cronies stole it for him.

        Anyone who has seen the photos from late-campaign rallies from Ohio showing jam packed crowds for Romney and loads of empty seats for Obama should have no doubts that.

        Never mind the tens of THOUSANDS of reports of voter fraud or the umpteen reports of skewed polls and ultra-biased media reporting that set the stage for an Obama “win” to be believable.

        I am also 100% sure the Holder DOJ will never investigate a single case. In 2009, Holder dropped a slam dunk voter intimidation case against New Black Panthers who had menaced voters they thought weren’t going to vote for Obama.

        Holder was clear why he refused to prosecute them for what they had obviously done. They were Black.

        • Penmar

          Thank your children for their service, Chrissy. And no I don’t think Mitt Romney was talking about you or your children. None of us begrudge those whose lives depend on it, the safety net. That includes our military. But what we do think is that the Congress ought to cut their freakin’ salaries and that money and more should go towards the Military, who have always been underpaid for the services they give to America. Military members should not have to be on food stamps or anything else, they should be making a decent enough income to support their families in comfort. You’ll never see a Union member fighting for that on behalf of the Military who could most use their help in getting the government to pay them a decent wage, because it wouldn’t profit them one little bit. I agree with you that the vote was stolen, but it was also bought by the hundreds of thousands that just have no desire to work or serve in the Military.

          • Chrissy the Hyphenated

            I could prefer the people who pay get to VOTE on Congressional salaries and benefits. It’s absurd these people get to vote for their own gold-plated everything for life.

            Most people have to start at the bottom and WORK their way up and there’s no hint of a pension until after 20 years. But legislators can walk in at huge salaries and walk out after any amount of time and/or quality of service with lifetime everything? At taxpayers’ expense? Without taxpayers’ consent?

            Or , here’s another plan … how about if Congress’ salaries and benefits line up with military’s. We’ll see how long the most junior members like living on food stamps.

            Third idea. All prospective members of Congress have to get through boot camp, same as any lowly Private. Can’t make it? Well, you don’t get to put your name on the ballot. You want to send MY kids to war? How about you walk a mile (or six weeks) in their shoes (combat boots) and EARN THE PRIVILEGE?

    • Katepatate

      He just looks like a president ought to look and his demeanor shows he is unflappable. Obama has a muscle in his jaw that tightens whenever anyone crosses him. He is not comfortable in his own skin because he doesn’t believe in anything absolutely except that this country must go down. I sincerely believe that is Obama’s goal and the Republicans in congress must fight him tooth and nail.

    • http://twitter.com/Daisy761 Daisy76

      Angie, the enthusiasm was real. I saw and felt it. It won’t go away. It’s there for Romney if he decides to give it another go.
      This election proved that if you use dirty, low-down, sleazy, thuggish campaign methods, you’ll win. Romney ran a classy and dignified campaign, refused to smear Obama the person, and that’s why he lost. He was too nice. A good chunk of those who voted for Obama believed the bad press about Romney. They were too lazy to get themselves informed before voting.

      He’s a normal Joe! He looked like he was genuinely having fun in all those pictures and not having to fake it like someone else we know..

    Nice to see family having a good time. Amused at the “thrilled” comments from people at Disneyland.. Wonder how many of them voted for Mitt. My guess very very few.

    It gives me a sort of comfort to see him out and about again. He’s such a decent man. It would have been so refreshing to have him as president.

    Folks: Mitt Romney can and should run for POTUS again. This guy has way too much to offer America and the fact is the MSM tore him down. Look at all the lies coming to light in Benghazi.

      He already said he won’t put his family through that again. He gave us two chances and we blew both of them.

        isn’t it sad? we really blew it this time. I think he could have been at least as good as Reagan–if not better. and I love Reagan. It’s really too bad so many people misunderstood him, misunderstood his record, including those on “our side.” I researched the HECK out of this guy–I started out completely unbias, undecided on him. I found someone who had become more conservative overtime and who’s policies I strongly agreed with most of the time….and I consider myself pretty conservative. you’re never going to agree with someone 100%. I think conservatives idealize Reagan too much b/c his history is actually very similar to Mitt’s. Reagan changed his stance on many issues–including abortion. heck, he was a democrat at one point. part of the reason Mitt lost was b/c of this misconception by conservatives that Romney wasn’t “conservative enough” so they stayed home in protest b/c their guy didn’t win. so completely selfish and blinded. the thought of a second term by Obama should have been enough to get ANY conservative off the couch to vote.

          Good point about Reagan “evolving” — it’s true and, in fact, it is true for a lot of people as they mature. There’s a Winston Churchill quote: “If you’re not a liberal at 20, you have no heart. If you’re not a conservative at 40, you have no brain.” While I’ve never been a far lefty, I find that to be true of my own experience — when you’re young you have your parents taking care of you & no real responsibilities other than school so it’s easy to be attracted to liberal utopian ideas, but then you finish school, go out into the “real world,” get married, have kids, etc. and realize those utopian ideas aren’t actually practical or realistic. I think it’s a natural progression for most people, so why shouldn’t that happen with candidates as well? It seems people expect a candidate to be born ultra conservative on every issue & never change one iota throughout their entire life. That kind of standard is as unrealistic as the liberal utopian society fantasies.

    It’s quite baffling that people are so shocked that Romney does go to Disneyland. Maybe libs hoped he would leave the planet, but he’s just going back to being a regular guy.(That’s what happens when you loose.) Millions of people visit both Disney parks with their family so we shouldn’t be surprised Mitt does the same thing.
    Remember, it was the Obama’s who never shopped at Walmart or Costco,etc. They’re the ones who vacation in Spain, Martha’s Vinyard and Hawaii.

      I’m sad that we won’t get the chance to see what Mitt could do as our leader. I feel he would have tried his best and put America first rather than trying to grab power (like … oh … never mind). But he’s a decent, good man and I’m glad he and his family will be able to go back to normal life. What classy, nice people they are. :)

    I can’t believe I’m missing this….live in California but am visiting Disney WORLD in Fla this week. I keep losing…..Mitt will be ok…..it was America’s loss.

    When we go over the fiscal cliff, when hyperinflation is unleashed, when economic growth is negative, when the US dollar crashes, and when the burden of taxes is pressed upon the working poor you will become certainly aware America didn’t elect Mitt Romney.

  • Kabong30

    That would have been awesome! I still like Mitt and I think he would have made a good president.

  • https://twitter.com/AlessaRosewater Maria

    Hope you enjoyed yourself, Mr. and Mrs. Romney! You guys deserve it! <3

  • bukk

    Glad to see him out and about. He could have chosen the bitter Algore route, grown a beard, retired to his hillside wigwam to meditate and overeat, then launch a campaign to become a “green” billionaire. Mitt’s more of a “regular Joe” or “common man” than Algore, Bill Clinton or Obummer, but they are painted by the media as the ones who are in touch while painting people like Mitt as Dr Evil.

  • linnicy

    He gets to go to Disneyland and we get to go down tubes with Obamaland. I hope they have a great Thanksgiving .

    have a great Thanksgiving .everybody

    Oh yeah, he looks totally out of touch with regular Americans…

      I am sure when O. goes to D.L. he blends in with the “normal folk” also, but it must be hard to maneuver a teleprompter on those darn rides…

        When O goes to Disney, he blames the long lines on Bush.

    I’m excited to see what Mitt does next. He’s too good of a man not to be out making a difference somewhere.

    • http://twitter.com/TheAngieNC2 Angie (D)

      He’ll be out making a difference but quietly & without the cameras around — just like he’s done his entire life.

      • http://twitter.com/Daisy761 Daisy76

        I’m afraid that in our celebrity-crazed culture he may become one, whether he likes it or not. He is handsome, has a handsome family, and a large fan base. I have a feeling the cameras will not stop here, unfortunately.

    when I see Obama I think I am in Fantasyland.

  • Howzah123

    You mean Mitt Romney is a normal human being and from the looks of it a decent man? Wait I thought he was Satan? Obama and the MSM told me that so it must be true

  • Barb

    He would have made a great president. Shameful media bias and Obama ” freebies” caused him to lose the election. I hope that our nation will, in the future, elect a president with morals, integrity and intelligence!

    I am glad he is out there doing normal things. It is kinda like I told you I was a normal person and the media showed the opposite now he is going to show it. I am sure he does not a have a mean bone in his body. But if It was me I would make the media look as bad as I could and totally work on discrediting them more then they have already done it to themselves. We sure missed out on having a great person lead us. Some may say he was not Reagan like but Reagan was not a republican at first either.

    Had we such scenes on July 4, might the image of Mitt Romney have been better with ordinary Americans?

    My heart is broken because I WAS THERE having a day of fun with my mom but I didn’t see him ;_;
