Mitt Romney Went Waterskiing, And The Boston Globe Is On It

America had a chance to elect Mitt Romney, and we blew it. Back in 2012 he warned us about Putin, and a lot of other problems we’re facing in 2017, but we just laughed at him. He tried to serve his country, and he was excoriated. He was mocked for hiring women, because he said he had binders full of their files. (To this day, nobody has ever been able to explain why that was bad.) Hell, he was even accused of giving people cancer. We treated a good, honorable man like dirt. He doesn’t owe us a thing.

Or… does he? Danny McDonald, Boston Globe:

While the Senate debated health care, Mitt Romney was waterskiing

One Republican who appears to be unbothered by all the political tumult? That would be Mitt Romney.

The former Massachusetts governor and two-time GOP presidential candidate looked quite carefree while showing off his waterskiing skills earlier this week.

Sheesh. Why is Romney goofing around like this when he’s supposed to be… um…

Wait. What is he supposed to be doing? He’s a private citizen. He’s enjoying his retirement. It’s too late to beg him for help. You blew it.

And you’re not going to learn from it.
