Had things gone his way, Mitt Romney would have raised his right hand Monday and sworn an oath to serve as the nation's 45 th president. Instead, the vanquished Republican nominee spent the day at home in La Jolla, out of sight if not quite out of mind. Former campaign aides said they had no details on how Romney spent his day, or whether he was among the millions of TV viewers who watched the events in Washington from afar. But his absence from public view was consistent with the low profile Romney has kept since being soundly defeated by President Obama in both the Electoral College and popular vote.

Call it a tale of two tax times, or, “It was the best of rates, it was the worst of rates.” In Washington, President Obama got a sort of early Christmas gift from Republicans, with House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) reportedly offering to raise tax rates on those Americans making more than $1 million a year. Among many Republicans, this probably earns Boehner a new title: traitor. Obama, of course, turned up his nose, because he wants higher tax rates on those making more than $200,000 ($250,000 for couples)

LAS VEGAS - Mitt Romney introduced himself to Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night by telling the Filipino boxing star he was the guy who lost the presidential election. Reality television star Snooki's new boxing promotion group, Team Snooki, debuted on the major stage of MGM Grand Garden Arena and its fighter fell to defeat. Rapper and new promoter 50 Cent appeared to be the only one among the celebrity group to avoid experiencing such awkwardness, dropping from light standards to perform his new single, "My Life," as his star fighter, Cuba's Yuriorkis Gamboa, walked in. Then Gamboa found himself in a fight for survival.

WASHINGTON - President Obama and Mitt Romney shattered spending records during their 2012 campaigns, eclipsing $2 billion in fundraising, the campaigns disclosed Thursday. Obama, who surpassed $1 billion in mid-October, added $111 million to his campaign and affiliated committees in the final 2 1/2 weeks of the campaign. In all, the president raised $1.1 billion for his reelection effort. Romney's final money push in that same period netted him more than $89.5 million - enough to nudge him past the billion-dollar mark as well.

Online news giant Yahoo! announced its top search terms of 2012 Monday and, no surprise, the 2012 election topped all other topics, including the iPhone 5, which registered the second-most searches; Kim Kardashian, who attracted the third most and swimsuit model Kate Upton, who ranked fourth. Mitt Romney's campaign for president also created three top-searched memes on all of Yahoo! this year, though, as shall be shown, those instances offered proof that a lively presence online is not always a good thing.

Pre-election survey data that the Romney for President campaign shared with a reporter from the New Republic helps explain the Republicans' excessive optimism prior to the Nov. 6 vote count - but not entirely. Overly rosy polling data from key states like Colorado, New Hampshire and Iowa make it more understandable why Mitt Romney and his aides thought they had a good chance of upsetting President Obama. Yet, as the New Republic's reporting shows, the Romney camp still had to convince itself that late "momentum” (which proved mostly non-existent)

Eric Hartsburg, the pro wrestler who got the Mitt Romney logo tattooed on his face for $15,000, has decided to have the tattoo removed. "I had a little change of heart," he said Friday. Hartsburg went on to say that Romney's recent comment that President Obama was re-elected because he gave "gifts" to women, minorities and college students made him change his mind. "I could deal with being a part of a losing campaign, but to still stand behind Gov. Romney with the positions he's taken post-election with the blame game instead," Hartsburg said.
