Mitt Romney’s 66th birthday - complete with fluffernutter
The 2012 presidential election may seen like it happened forever ago, but former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney could very well have been the current President of the U.S., so here’s a birthday shout-out to the former Republican nominee.
And while this post was being put together, Mitt’s son Tagg sent out this photo of Mitt enjoying a birthday fluffernutter cupcake. And if anything can break through the partisan fights that characterized the Obama/Romney election, it’s fluffernutter.
That said, it’s unknown whether Romney ate 47% percent of the cake, or if he baked that.

That was from the first part of a two-part profile on Romney in 2007. Here’s the second part.
