Mitt Romney's Campaign Cancels Staffers Credit Cards In The Middle Of The Night

Posted by   + Show Post

The next time you have the misfortune of hearing a Wall Street titan or other one-percenter whine about how their trickle-down contributions are not appreciated by the masses remember this tidbit, courtesy of Garrett Haake at NBC:

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.

No doubt a whole host of Boston taxi drivers found themselves stiffed when it came to tips early Wednesday morning. That’s what happens when the money trickles up, not down and it’s why healthy economies don’t depend on the trickle down whims of overlords. The minute Richie Rich decides he doesn’t need all that stuff staff … well, that’s that.

In case you are wondering, this did not have to happen. The Mitt Romney for President entity does not end with Romney’s Tuesday night loss. There are papers to be filed with various federal commissions and bills to be paid ….

But clearly not the taxi bills belonging to some of those most loyal to Romney. Maybe that’s what you get for taking a job with a multi-millionaire who boasts about the fact that he sneaks popcorn into movie theatres in wife’s handbag, so he doesn’t have to pay inflated concession prices for a snack.

And they wanted him for president. Things don't go his way he just drops the bag and moves on. So typical.

Win or lose if they were there till the end he could still pay their way home like he would have if he had won. Unless he planned on being a sleaze ball after winning too.

Quoting acrogodess:

Yep, but the bills can't be paid of the minions are still spending.

Do we really need more proof that he never cared for the little guys?

He could have waited till the next day. It was a dick move. Even though they lost those people still busted their ass for him. The least he could have done was give them a ride home. And minions? Don't you mean plebeians or peasants?

Nope. I meant minions. Mindless boobs who wanted to ride the coattails of his rise to power and who were the first to go when he failed.

I think that speaks more to Mitt's character than the human beings who worked for him.

I also find it ironic that Mitt cuts his staffers off and Obama visits them and gets emotional thanking them.
