Romney Team Accidentally Releases Victory Website



.....

One of his staffers, however, apparently waited until the former Governor officially lost the election to make a clerical error in (presumably) leaking the link to the candidate's transition website accidentally.

On Wednesday, Roll Call's Political Wire posted screen grabs of some of the pages from the website that Romney and Paul Ryan would have released had they won the election.

The homepage of the site has a seal of 'The Office of the President Elect' and had a quote on the top signed by President-Elect Mitt Romney.

'I'm excited about our prospects as a nation. My priority is putting people back to work in America,' the large quote says.

It shows links to information about the would-be inauguration (taking place in Washington, DC on January 21, 2013) and his vision of a 'smaller, simpler, smarter' America.

I, for one, am quite relieved that he'll never, ever get his money grubbing hands on the nuclear codes.

12. But he so wanted to look competent. So much so, he lied about his 'current' activities.

As if he didn't already know who he would have picked.

6. From reading several post mortems on the Romney campaign,

I think they all really did believe they were going to win and were stunned by the early call of the race for President Obama. It boggles my mind that they were in such a bubble, totally removed from reality.

13. This Is Characteristic Of Their Whole Campaign ......

from the Repug primaries to Nov 6th. It was so poorly run and managed - and all the while they were telling us what a great CEO/Businessman Rmoney was.

8. They had time to set up a PE website, but no time to write a consession speech.

Got it.

Arrogant to the end.

17. From the website: "and his vision of a 'smaller, simpler, smarter' America."...

What does that mean? "smaller, simpler, smarter"...

"It shows links to information about the would-be inauguration (taking place in Washington, DC on January 21, 2013) and his vision of a 'smaller, simpler, smarter' America."

27. I just saw on Tamron Hall's NewsNation that the Willard campaign cancelled all credit cards.

Right after his speech, apparently. Staffers on their way home found out the hard way when they tried to pay for their taxis or other transportation.

Wow.

That might help explain why this website was 'accidentally' leaked by a former staffer - perhaps one who got stuck with a travel bill after being summarily dumped by Willard.
