Over at Political Wire, Taegan Goddard has screen shots of the short lived Mitt Romney's Transition Site.

What I found most interesting was a familiar picture Team Romney chose for his wished for presidential inauguration.

The reason why the picture is familiar to me is because I've had it as my desktop picture for almost 4 years now. The original picture can be found on the US Capitol's flickr site: Presidential Inauguration.

The Inauguration of President Barack H. Obama, 44th president of the United States, on the West Front of the Capitol. January 20, 2009.
Now I would have thought Team Romney would have chosen a picture from the inauguration of Reagan, Bush the elder, or Bush the lesser, but instead they went with who would actually win the election.

Here's the real deal:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
