Boston - Mitt Romney has a new position with his son’s Boston-area venture capital firm.

Last year’s Republican presidential nominee will serve as chairman of the executive committee for Solamere Capital. The firm was founded by Romney’s oldest son, Tagg, and the national finance committee chairman for his presidential campaign, Spencer Zwick.

Romney has been a limited partner in Solamere, and investors have been sent letters announcing his elevated role. The Associated Press obtained a copy of one of the letters on Wednesday.

Romney has just begun to emerge from months of isolation at his home in southern California. In a Sunday television interview, he said “it kills me” to have lost the presidential race.

He delivers his first public speech since the loss next week in Washington.

I truly do not understand why he would want to spend even one day a month in the office wearing a suit. He has more money than he can eat. If I were him, I would be spending time with the grandkids.

That's why he is so successful. He keeps going. He's hardworking and driven.
And he spends plenty of time with his beautiful family. His grandkids are probably in school during the day....

You know, he probably is hard-working and driven by nature...but I gotta say, showing up one day EACH MONTH, and at your kid's company no less, sounds more like a lazy man's gig to me!

Every time I see his name or a picture of him in the news I sigh and think to myself how much better off this country would have been with a Romney presidency. So sad that we missed out on that opportunity and we will never really know how things could have gotten a whole lot better.

Please let us know how you see the US in a better place with Romney as President? What do you think would have changed?
