In his first interview since November's presidential election, Mitt Romney compared the end of the 2012 campaign to the sensation of getting off a roller coaster.
"We were on a roller coaster, exciting and thrilling, ups and downs," Romney told Fox News' Chris Wallace in an interview set to air on Fox News Sunday on March 3. "But the ride ends. And then you get off. And it's not like, oh, can't we be on a roller coaster the rest of our life? It's like, no, the ride's over."
The Fox interview, which Romney and his wife, Ann, sat down for this week, marks the former Republican presidential candidate's first since losing the race to President Barack Obama.
Ann Romney said she believes the couple has done well with the post-election "adjustment," likening it to roles they have had in their church.
"In our church, we're used to serving and you know, you can be in a very high position, but you recognize you're serving," she said. "And then all of a sudden, you're released and you're nobody. And we're used to that."
I hate to break it to Ann Romney but to be honest they always were "nobodies." The only reason that Mitt even had a chance at the nomination is because he appeared to be less irrational then the rest of the GOP field.
Though, I have to say, as the campaign wore on we had reason to question that assumption.
As for that roller coaster analogy, from my perspective it seemed like a coaster that had almost imperceptible ups followed by terrifying, stomach dropping, lows. Who in the their right mind wants to continue riding THAT ride?
By the way here is a recent sighting of the ex-candidate stumbling through a store like an Alzheimer patient, to ask his wife which one of those two cereals is the one in the tiger commercials.
