A 2012 GOP reunion

Updated 4:30 p.m. ET, 3/9/2014

(CNN) – Mitt Romney, 2012 GOP presidential nominee, and his former running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, tweeted Sunday that they bumped into each other at the airport.

But was the encounter all that coincidental?

A Romney aide said the photo was taken at Jacksonville International Airport in Florida, where the former Massachusetts governor was headed home from the American Enterprise Institute's annual world forum this weekend in Sea Island, Georgia.

Ryan, too, was at the private event. Ryan joined CBS' "Face the Nation" for an interview from Sea Island on Sunday.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who's also chairman of the Republican Governors Association, was at the event, as well.

CNN's Steve Brusk and Kevin Bohn contributed to this report.

    @just asking, yes, because what we really need is an elevator car millionaire who tortures his dog and thinks it's funny and a guy who used government assistance when his family needed but now doesn't want the same for others.

    Here's a suggestion Genius... Offer up a candidate who isn't a prostitute for big business and looking to destroy the middle class and kick the poor around. One who doesn't dictate what women should do and treats Latinos like dirt. THEN you might have a chance. Yeah, too much to ask for.

    Really, just asking? If Mittens and Crazy Eyes had won, we would probably be in another unwinnable war. It is a great time to be a Republican. Just wait until President Obama says something, then disagree. No brains required.

  10. ThinkAgain - Don't like Congress? Get rid of the repub/tea bag majority.

    @just asking: "this country would be soooo much better off if these two were in the white house."

    Let's see, "investors" (read: foreign entities and multi-national corporations) would have taken over the housing market, which is rebounding; we'd be at war with Iran (don't forget to enlist, just!); the economy would be in free-fall; the most vulnerable among us would be on the receiving end of Ryan's budget (just ask Sister Simone Campbell about how well it aligns with Christ's teachings); and oh, yeah, we'd be at war with Russia, too.
