The Republican party is in disarray, or as I like to call it, imploding. When Willard M. Romney lost the election to President Obama, he promised to remain "a strong voice for the party," something he vowed at his final meeting with campaign staffers at his Boston headquarters.
He wasn't even a strong voice during his own campaign. So much for yet another empty proMitts:
(AP) -- He has quietly weathered the fallout of the campaign from the seclusion of his Southern California home, emerging only momentarily for a private lunch at the White House with President Barack Obama on Thursday.
His loss and immediate withdrawal from politics, while welcomed by most, has created a leadership vacuum within his party. It's left the GOP rudderless, lacking an overarching agenda and mired in infighting, with competing visions for the way ahead, during what may be the most important policy debate in a generation.
The GOP is a leaderless party whose presidential candidate-- the one they swore by only weeks ago-- doesn't belong any more, and true to form, has lied once again.
Some "strong voice."
He's made no public comments about China, taxes, Medicare, immigration, his meeting with the president, and so forth, and so on, etc., etc. Nada. Zilch. Zero. Zip.
He's fading faster than his Just for Men hair color.
So what's he doing now? Funny you should ask:
The former businessman is subletting office space at the Boston-area venture capital firm, Solamere Capital, which was founded by his oldest son. Former aides expect Romney to stay out of the spotlight for the foreseeable future - spending colder months at his California home and warmer months at his New Hampshire lake house.
Gotta keep those car elevators warm. Let's hope he doesn't bring any family dogs along on his schleps between mansions.
