He's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack.
Were you sitting around, wistfully remembering the good ol' days of the 2012 election, when Mitt Romney was private jetting around the country insulting every single demographic he could find, from women to immigrants to the owners of mom-and-pop bakeries?

Well, then, you're in luck because Romney has decided he's finally ready to emerge from self-imposed seclusion at his fancy-schmancy we-need-this-car-elevator-for-all-Ann's-Cadillacs beach house in La Jolla, California (that's the state that sucks almost as hard as Europe). Via National Review Online:

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will appear at the Conservative Political Action Conference next month, according to two sources familiar with the event’s itinerary. [...]

“This is really an opportunity for Governor Romney to thank all his supporters and friends,” says a senior Romney aide.

All his supporters and friends? All both of 'em? Last we heard of the Mittster, he was trying to console his wife—who can't believe "you people" didn't vote for her husband—and Paul P90X Ryan, who was also shellshocked that all those polls turned out to be skewed just fine, thanks, and of course holding out hope that Karl Rove's refusal on election night to acknowledge Romney had lost meant maybe, just maybe, he hadn't lost. (In case you missed it, Romney did in fact lose.)

For a while, he was letting it be known through "advisers" and "friends" that he still firmly believes 47 percent of America sucks, and he would have won if it weren't for those meddling voters. Oh, and he was doling out electoral advice to Democrats because who better to opine on how to win an election than the guy who just lost an election.

Apparently, though, he's finally had enough time to recover from his defeat and is "eager to contribute to the national debate." Considering just how good for Democrats his contributions to the national debate have been, I'd like to be the first to welcome him back.

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.
