Defeated presidential candidate Mitt Romney is happy to be off the campaign trail, despite its aura of excitement.
“The bubble is a different experience,” he told Dennis Miller
on the comedian’s radio show Wednesday. “Being in your own charter aircraft, having the Secret Service accompany you everywhere you go and outside your front door at night. I mean, it’s really quite an unusual thing and kind of exciting.”

So what’s the appeal of the campaign’s end?
“I have to admit, being able to go back to our own life and going to the grocery store and shopping on my own is kind of nice,” the man the GOP hoped would be president said. “To be by myself without a bunch of people hanging around with me.
“I like the life of being an American citizen. It’s good to live a normal life again.”
That’s not to say that Romney has lost interest in the issues of the day.
“I’m very concerned about the country,” Romney said. “I have to be honest. I wouldn’t have gotten into this if I thought things were going swimmingly. . . . That’s the frustration with losing. I don’t have the influence I obviously could have had [if] I won that election.”
