| by Michael Allen

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney took the day off from campaigning to go grocery shopping, almost forgetting the grocery cart as he walked into Bradley’s Hardware, a local grocery store and pharmacy In Wolfeboro, New Hampshire (video below).

Romney left the grocery store after only 10 minutes and stiffly loaded the his purchases into a Suburban, as Secret Service men stood close by.

Romney reportedly bought 12-packs of Caffeine Free Diet Coke, Wild Cherry Diet Pepsi and some Greek yogurt.

Romney said: “I’ve got some folks coming over today." When asked if they included Sen. Rob Portman or former Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Romney laughed.
