How the Secret Service Said Goodbye to Mitt Romney

How the Secret Service Said Goodbye to Mitt Romney

by The Troubadour

Marc Ambinder has a brief piece up at GQ entitled "How the Secret Service Said Goodbye to Mitt Romney." The piece begins with this delicious opening:

At some point, early Wednesday morning, when Gov. Mitt Romney and family were tucked into bed, a quiet call went out on the radio channel used by his Secret Service agents: "Javelin, Jockey details, all posts, discontinue."

Of all the indignities involved in losing a presidential race, none is more stark than the sudden emptiness of your entourage. The Secret Service detail guarding Governor Romney since Feb 1. stood down quickly. He had ridden in a 15-car motorcade to the Intercontinental Hotel in Boston for his concession speech. He rode in a single-car motorcade back across the Charles River to Belmont. His son, Tagg, did the driving.

I'm clearly a horrible person, for the image of Tagg driving and Romney suddenly without his entourage brings nothing but a smile to my face.

11. You know what? McCain wasn't a douche during the campaign or during his concession

Indeed, he won many points with me by keeping Palin off the stage and trying to get his supporters in line.

Romney, on the other hand, was a lying fuckstick who encouraged every bad feeling his supporters were having, or smiled wanly at them. He never had the stones McCain had when McCain told that woman that her delusions about Obama weren't true.

Romney is a coward and a fraud, and a nasty piece of business to boot, so I'm firmly happy seeing him eating shit in a way that would have disturbed me for McCain, or Dole, or even Bush senior (Dubya was just a frat boy asshole).

Romney can suffer no "indignity," because he conducts himself without any dignity.

At least the SS said goodbye - Romney's way of saying goodbye to his campaign staffers was to cut off their credit cards stranding some without so much as cab fare at his campaign HQ during his loss.

Matt Douglas: That went a little too easy. You guys are getting soft.

Greg: Mr. President, once again, we really wish you wouldn't do that. You put yourself at great risk, sir.

Matt Douglas: Oh, yeah, right. Let me ask you something. In all the years ex-presidents have had Secret Service protection, has there ever been even one assassination attempt on any of 'em?

Chet: Uh, no, sir.

Matt Douglas: I find that sad. The minute you're out of office they don't care enough about you to kill you anymore. People are FICKLE.

71. Just image IF Romney had won how much it would have cost to protect all 29 of them ...


-snip-

Romney has his family. When the race was close, agents would joke about the number of "j" words they'd need to come up with in order to give every one of his children, their wives, and all of their children code names. That's 29 people who would have received, if not protection, at least a protective survey and recommendations from the Service. Quietly, plans had already been put in place to assign protective details to all of them, just in case.

72. Evil, bad Marc Armbinder. That much Schadenfreude will only gain you a whole lot of Karma.

 

You must be young and stupid to not know that.

73. Sorry, DC, but you're missing several things here.

  1. First, you obviously have not read the original article posted in GQ:

    http://www.gq.com/news-politics/blogs/death-race/2012/11/how-the-secret-service-said-goodbye-to-mitt-romney.html?mbid=social_twitter_gqmagazine

    Nowhere, is there any smattering of schadenfreude.

  2. The commentary you interpret as schadenwhatever is most likely attributable to the KOSack who quoted the QC piece in his diary.

  3. So where are you getting off called Armbinder: "....evil, bad,... young and stupid"?

If so, I can admit it, and I'll leave my post up. No hiding shit.

76. And actually, I was a tad snipy. So my bad there....

It was cool to read this article, because I had the same question: when do Rmoney and Lyin' lose their SS protection and how does this happen?

So it was good information for me.

And as for the schadenwhatever, it's a bit hard NOT to feel that way. Both Rmoney and Lyin' obviously had such disdain for the common man and woman. It is a bit good to see them get their cumuppance in such a public way.

Anyway, have a GREAT day!

That one was easier than the last and I'm hoping it's going to become a trend.

92. I wish there was video.

I bet he was terrified that some vicious Obamamob would attack him at any moment.


And...welcome back (again)!! Hope you're finally thawing out and things are getting back to normal. I had no idea you were on the east coast. I thought all you paid Obamabots lived in luxury homes in CA.



Oh...one more thing...thank you for all the work you've done here. I don't know who you are, but you damned sure are on top of shit. You've helped me win (or at least shut down) many arguments.

102. Willard Romney can afford body guards.

If the emtiness created by the Secret Service's departure bothers him, he can get more goons.

scene I saw, briefly, of him in the back seat of that one regular car was priceless. His face was like the rain that was falling. Gloomy. I loved it. Seeing him in utter defeat.
