When Little Rich Boys (Mitt Romney) Do Not Get Their Way It Is Brutal
Mitt Romney was never the nice man that he wanted America to think he was, and certainly never had the policy goals that this nation needs. It is rather telling that on the last day of his campaign the voters alerted him to the latter, and he demonstrated the former for all to know.
This is just not the way to deal with campaign staffers who work hard, and are as deflated as the candidate when a defeat is handed out from the voters.
In the harsh light of reality for Republicans Mitt Romney lost. Soundly lost, in fact.
Yet the folks who work tirelessly while giving up sleep and ‘a life’ for the campaign deserve to be treated with some dignity and respect. Mr. Money Bags and Cayman Island man Mitt Romney could have allowed the men and women who needed one more cab ride home after an exhausting and emotionally draining day that last small token.
There is a continued framework that is to run for two years to make sure all the bills get paid from the campaign, and a cab ride was not going to break the bank.
From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself.
Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.
