Where’s Willard? Out: Elvis sightings. In: Romney sightings

New hotness: Spotting Mitt Romney in random locations, most recently in La Jolla, Calif. While snubbed members of the media had to make do with fake live tweets of the Romney/Obama lunch date, Twitter users are spotting Romney all over the place!

The media does try to get in on the “Where’s Willard” action. The Washington Post wrote about a “detached” Romney, who is “tending his wounds.”

Or, you know, just living his life. How dare he?! WaPo also mentioned the photo of Romney pumping his own gas. The horror!

Heh. Indeed. Journalism has been flat-lining for a while.

The Romney spotting fun on Twitter continues, with no end in sight.

Some wishful thinking? But if you squint really hard …


Some confirmed sightings, with photo evidence! At McDonald’s.


And CVS.


And the latest: A pizza joint.



The most pressing question:


And if they do get old?

Stay tuned! Is “Where’s Tagg” next?

    I really, really miss them. I wish he would speak to us.

  • smb04d

    I really miss Mitt Romney’s face and voice. No joke.

      • tredglx

        Same here. He was a vision of experience and intelligence that could help the nation. What do we have instead? Someone who exudes arrogance, narcissism and complete incompetence.

        • comfypaws

          ditto all that

    • thohan

      You know the old saw: If Washington or Lincoln ran today they’d lose in a landslide. Romney, I dare say, resembled those two a touch more than our unfortunate President.

      • smb04d

        Honestly, I saw past the rhetoric that was plaguing Romney’s image–the anti-women, anti-poor, uncaring, too out of touch politician, and I saw a moderate, a grandpa, and a shrewd businessman who would be honest with us and wanted to work for America…and I’m a democrat. Go figure.

          You’re one of the smart ones!

        • disqus_ys7YLGvSbv

          I saw him as the wise old grandpa too. The Grand kids have gotten themselves in a heap of trouble running up a bunch of debt and he was going to sit them down and help them lay out a plan to get back on track.

      • GW

        We’re the unfortunate ones.

    • http://twitter.com/Daisy761 Daisy76

      Everytime I see O’s face I think of Romney. I feel a twinge in my heart each time. This is going to last 4 years.

      • b.

        Four more years of “uhhs” with a teleprompter.

        • Dallas El Cazador

          I’m doubting we’ll see much of his mug, or have to listen to his inarticulate dronings. He has no need to communicate to the “masses” now that he’s been re-coronated as US Demi-God. He might deign to tell us how good he is to us occasionally, but that will interfere with golf and vacationing, so dont expect it often. Thank God

    • gr82cu2

      Absolutely! It makes my heart happy to see him settling back into life and enjoying his family. He’s a good man for sure.

    • disqus_ys7YLGvSbv

      Agree. I feel like he was the last good hope to turn us back on this road of spending, spending, spending, that we are on. Has God abandoned us?

  • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

    It would be even harder to spot where Obama is. Don’t look at the White House, he’s never there.

    • SineWaveII

      Try the golf course, if not there then the nearest soap-box with a crowd of people standing in front of it. Otherwise he’s on vacation.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    $500 bucks says you’ll NEVER get a picture of Barack “the man of the people” Obama shopping in a CVS.

    • Timothy Weaver

      And to think, Obama was considered the candidate that was in touch with the working man.

      • SineWaveII


      • zen

        Who’s never worked…

        • disqus_ys7YLGvSbv

          Other than to defend slum lords.

    • SineWaveII

      Unless it’s a staged photo-op like that ridiculous photo of Mooch at Target or that photo of crazy Joe at Costco.

      • YeahWeWill

        Or the destruction of Sandy, the bus in honor of Rosa Parks; anywhere but work!

    • KansasGirl

      Not without his media lapdogs getting “photo” ops…to show the serfs he’s just as common as them. /s

    • Guest

      He’ll send Joe.

      • disqus_ys7YLGvSbv

        Joe would get lost in the toy section.

    • http://twitter.com/Daisy761 Daisy76

      Yes, you would, if it’s a photo op for something or other.

  • Kimberly C

    Mitt is looking relaxed & quite handsome.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rafael.penariosribero Rafael Eduardo Peña-Rios Riber

    cashier: how will you be paying for this sir?
    Stranger: Mr Romney here will pay for it
    Mitt: What!?
    Stranger: with how the president is doing things im gonna run out of a job, end poor and gonna need welfare. Don’t et me wrong, it doesn’t make me any happier

    • SineWaveII

      I wouldn’t put it past them. Also I hope he still has security. As unhinged as the left has become I wouldn’t it past one of them to try and kill him.

      • Ryan Johnson

        Given how divided our country is I’m surprised this isn’t more of a concern on both sides of the aisle.

  • SineWaveII

    Very soon you’ll be wishing you that you see Romney in the oval office. After you realize how you’ve been had.

  • Kabong30

    I like Mitt Romney. It makes me angry that he was so vilified during the election and now we can see that he’s just a normal human being. He should come to Texas, I’d have a slice of pizza with him.

    • GW

      What are you, a cannibal?

      Just kidding … I liked Mitt the more I got to see him. He really seems like a normal guy now just living his life. I think it’d be great to just hang out with him and have a normal conversation.

    • tredglx

      I’d buy the pizza and beer for the three of us, el Kabong.

      • Kabong30

        It’d just be you and I drinking that beer, but that’s OK, more for us. LOL

  • patriot fan

    I’m still sad that Mitt Romney lost. I think he would have been a fabulous president. Obama and the UN suck. Yes I said UN…you know where Obama is taking us or at least trying…..

  • patriot fan

    going to be a very long 4 years.

    • disqus_ys7YLGvSbv

      Four summers with the length of four long winters.

  • Ryan Johnson

    Apparently he doesn’t appear to be the soulless automaton his campaign presented him as.

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

      Um, that wasn’t his campaign — that was OFA & the MSM (but I repeat myself).

  • Howzah123

    So we going to follow this family around and mock them while taking pictures of them eating pizza for eternity? Stay classy America

  • thohan

    Romney lost because of false, negative ads that de-energized Republicans. We seem to have ourselves to blame for the weakest among us being media-culled. Not sure what the solution is.

    • tredglx

      Agreed. Anyone who voted for 0bamaclaus is beneath contempt.

    • TundraThunder

      Pathetic = all caps to try and get a point across. Fail! Go troll somewhere else!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Albert-Dailey/1645539954 Albert Dailey

    Romney won 57 million and obama won 60 million, POPULAR VOTE, ROMNEY ONLY LOST BY 333,000 VOTES in the electoral college, divided over 4 swing states

  • orringtonmom (D)

    ok, so let’s tally… honey nut cheerios, mcD’s and pizzeria with the grands vs. golf outings on company time and $4mill vacations. yup, romney is sooo out of touch with the american people.

    • http://twitter.com/Daisy761 Daisy76

      Love your post! LOL.

    • disqus_ys7YLGvSbv

      And Thankgiving dinner take out from Boston Market. And Disneyland.

  • Elena0412


  • Brandon

    When he was running for President he ridiculed for being too rich and not relatable. When he’s not running for President, he’s ridiculed for being relatable. The man can’t win with these people. I feel so sorry for him knowing that he can’t even sit down and eat a slice of pizza with his family in peace.

  • David Atherton

    Like I saw on FB the other day “Romney lost because he offered jobs to people who don’t want to work”

    • disqus_ys7YLGvSbv

      True Dat!

  • http://twitter.com/Daisy761 Daisy76

    I hope people will not bug him too much while he’s out and about doing his thing. Having said that, I sure love these photos! Looking forward to more sightings.

  • ember

    You know what this shows me? Mitt is a man of the people. He buys cereal. He goes to the drugstore. He walks through the airport like a regular Joe. Guess what Obama’s million dollar Christmas vaca shows????

  • Esau’s Message

    Is he growing into a cult figure?

    • Let’em Crash

      Definitely going to stop in La Jolla on the next San Diego trip. *Giddy* Planning it right, too: no coffee shops or beer centric restaurants.

  • detroit19

    FYI-I went to Dollar General today after taking a shower and loading the dishwasher. I also watched my granddaughter, raked leaves, cooked dinner, cleaned the kitchen, loaded the dishwasher and did laundry, too. I/we also have 3 self-sufficient children. Where is our press? Leave the man alone and concentrate on the disaster that IS BHO.#2.

  • Belinda Henry

    Romney is a nice man who thought his opponent would be a gentleman. Lifes lessons are sometimes harsh.

  • http://www.chaosandcritters.com Ella Halligan

    So, the guy who is taking a $4 million vacation at taxpayer expense is “in touch” with the common man, but the guy taking his grandkids out for pizza and buying his own Cheerios at CVS isn’t??

  • bannedforselfcensorship

    Mitt Romney should embrace this meme. This is the sort of thing that can destroy the image poisoning so carefully crafted by the Dem’s spinsters. Then in 4 years, people will wonder why Obama got elected and be more cautious about believing stuff they are told by politicians.

  • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

    Is it at all possible to make exclamations without using God’s name inappropriately?

  • massjim

    Apparently Mitt, unlike most if not all of the political class, has a life outside of politics. Good for him. I wish him well.

  • clocker1

    I love that he is proving them wrong. No drivers, no servants, just regular folk.

  • disqus_ys7YLGvSbv

    He looks happy. I’m glad he looks happy.
