Mitt Romney: Pumping Gas on Reddit!

by at . Comments

Save for a controversial remark about President Obama giving gifts to ethnic groups in return for votes, Mitt Romney has kept a low profile since losing the 2012 election.

Monday, a photo of Romney filling up at a gas station in La Jolla, Calif., was posted on Reddit. He appears slightly frazzled ... and/or just a little annoyed:

Mitt Romney Pumping Gas

"Mitt Romney at my local gas station," Reddit user mkb95 wrote. "He looks tired and washed up."

We know what you're thinking ... Mitt Romney pumps his own gas?

Gone is his familiar, perfectly slicked-back coif from the campaign trail, but the 65-year-old apparently wasn't as disheveled or upset as the image might suggest.

"I talked to him for a good three minutes while he was filling his tank," the poster added. "I guess he's moving to one of his houses in the town I live in, La Jolla."

Hey, he doesn't have much else going on now.

Having run for president for the better part of six years, the former Massachusetts Governor and wife Ann Romney can finally look forward to some downtime.

In fact, the couple took in a showing of Breaking Dawn Part 2 in Del Mar, Calif., one town north of La Jolla, on Saturday, then hit up a pizza place across the street.

He may not be President of the United States, but on the bright side, he can enjoy the palpable on-screen chemistry of Robsten without a Secret Service detail.


He should run for select board or city council in his community and make a difference. Work his way up the ladder, so to speak.

Cathy, thats pretty sad.... but also pretty funny for the former governor of Massachusetts.


First he's "out of touch" because he "probably doesn't pump his own gas." So now he's pumping his own gas and he looks "tired and washed up." As far as the media is concerned, this guy can't catch a break.

@ Jeff

yeah, Reddit user mkb95 is "the media". you'reanidiot.

@ m abreu

@m abreu
Maybe you should read what some of the other media reports have said about the photo before commenting. Idiot!

@ Clint

Alternatively, we could all just look at the photo since it's representative of an objective reality (something Romney supporters are generally unfamiliar with). In the picture, that is a snapshot of reality, we can clearly discern that he is indeed looking tired and washed up. To blame "the media" for stating an objective truth is pretty sad. Are you upset that they used those terms? Or that they reflect reality? How else would you describe what we see in this picture?
