(Newser) – If the public sector won't have him, Mitt Romney is fine returning to the private one: He is taking a new post with son Tagg's venture capital firm, reports NBC News. Romney will serve as chair of Solamere Capital's executive committee, which translates into about a week of work per month advising on private-equity decisions. Letters have gone out to top investors, reports AP, which notes that Romney already was a limited partner at the Boston company.

Doesn't matter, done Mitt Yawn-ney. The GOP proved how out of touch they were with this guy.

This is old news. I heard this shortly after he lost. Good thing Tagg had a business he could join. :)

I liked the headline in my local newspaper better: "Romney Takes New Position." It was comforting in its utter familiarity.
