Businessweek Shelves Romney Cover After President Obama Wins Re-Election [PHOTOS]
Just to be on the safe side, the publication printed up two potential covers, one featuring an aged Romney wiith the words “The Next Four Years,” and a second copy with President Obama.
Both photos, courtesy of Justin Metz, show the politicians looking much older than their actual ages, and was made to showcase how the stress of leading the country can take its toll on the commander in chief’s personal appearance.
After losing the presidential race, Romney contacted Obama to congratulate him on the victory, before addressing supporters late Tuesday (Nov. 6). “This is a time of great challenge for America, and I pray that the president will be successful in guiding our nation,” Romney said. The 65-year-old also thanked running mate Paul Ryan, his wife Anne, and members of his campaign.
Throughout this year’s presidential bid both sides attacked one another, but after his defeat Romney came from a place of unity. “This nation, as you know, is at a critical point. At a time like this we can’t risk partisan bickering and political posturing. Our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people’s work, and we citizens also have to rise to occasion.
Obama expressed a similar disposition during his speech last night, vowing to be in contact with Romney in an attempt to bridge the partisan gap.
