Mitt Romney has retreated into ‘seclusion’ after his failed presidential run and has so little to do he is offering to change bedpans for sick friends to ease his boredom.
In a huge step down from the campaign trail, the former Republican candidate for the White House is said to have reached out to a friend going through a liver transplant and offered to care for him.
Gone are Romney’s daily briefings with top aides and Secret Service entourage - now he spends his days alone on his iPad as he grapples with crushing disappointment.
An article in the Washington Post paints a picture of a man going through the awful low that presidential candidates have to deal with after they lose - in his case after six years of campaigning.
Exacerbating Romney’s plight is that unlike other failed contenders like John McCain and John Kerry, he does not have a job in the Senate to go back to.
He has also had to endure seeing wife Ann, who publicly admitted the campaign was very hard on her, cry in private as she takes it even worse than him.
