64. Romney is no longer running for office, so he doesn't care what anyone thinks of

 

him. He thought all his money could buy him more Power, and with more Power his standing within the money $$ !% community was all he needed to fulfill his massive ego. That didn't happen, he wasn't elected President, so he no longer needs his staff of anyone else he considers beneath him, the 47%. That is who he is, a selfish corporate demagogue.

85. Yeah, no kidding. The comments are MOST interesting.

LOTS of people dumping on him - basically saying that this would have been the kind of presidency we could have "looked forward to" if HEAVEN FORBID wrongney had won. Someone even commented - "after all, he likes to fire people." How does it feel to be used up and promptly discarded, mittians? Wonder if any of them will finally realize that he's nothing but an IGMFU (I Got Mine, F-U)? Yet another republi-CON illusion from their very own kkkarl rove-built/koch brothers-funded "reality." If any of them really had expected to be respected or treated honorably, they shoulda signed on with the other team.

51. really? Because I volunteer much of my time and money for my candidates

Prior to election day 2006 I rented a car to drive to Topeka to a rally and then drove south all the way to Yates Center and home showing off my bumperstickers.

This little snippet kinda made me ill "In 2010, Hillary Clinton’s campaign was still soliciting donations to retire the last $771,000 of the $5.9 million debt it accrued in the bruising 2008 Democratic primary fight."
Raw Story (http://s.tt/1sLwa)

The Clintons are multi-millionaires but they won't pay their own campaign debt out of their own millions.

and under the understand that your expenses would be covered ... as these campaign workers must have been, since they were issued campaign credit cards?

Doing something on your own, even in support of and to benefit someone else does not create an expectation that you will be compensated.

81. bite your tongue

I wouldn't do a thng for HRC, although I thought about getting an autographed copy of her book, for my mom (who doesn't like Hillary either).

I did a fair amount of work for Boyda, and even donated (and got three t-shirts).

My point is that they got paid to do what I did for free. I did not get any paid hotel rooms or rental cars or cabs.

If they were just in it for the money, then I am not sure I want them on my side either.

I probably would not be happy to be stiffed out of some of my pay, especially by a rich candidate like Romney, or Clinton, or Grayson, but on the other hand, I would be happy to be paid at all for some of the stuff I do for free.

The campaign (not the SuperPacs) is probably heavily in debt.

It makes the huge bonuses paid to the top people very ironic.

57. Would Dem staff get a credit card for cabs?

Maybe they would, but I wonder.

The staffs I've worked with have always seemed very lean - folks sharing a rented house, hoping volunteers would bring snacks, water and markers.

I picture those young people working in Obama's Chicago office taking mass transit, not cabs.

60. I'm not convinced it was the wrong thing to do.

Those credit cards are ripe for abuse.

62. Am I alone in thinking this a mistake? He is "shellshocked".

I believe his response gives insight as well. We definitely dodged a bullet.

73. I've changed my mind after listening to what the GOP is up to today. He was setting an example.

We still dodged a bullet, but he is showing other wealthy internationals how to respond to having to pay more of their fair share.

63. Romney defenders at Forbes are saying this was a good thing to do because

otherwise they would have charged up a big bar tab or something!

So they are basically calling their side a bunch of freeloaders and thieves.

65. I wonder ...

if many reporter/journalist has reached out to any staffers to get their story?

I'm willing to bet, these staffers' story will be far more interesting than the usual "tell-all" books of the senior staff.

66. The weird thing is.....it probably turns those kids on to see

Mitt going so "capitalist" on them. The more helpless they feel, the more they feel they need the republicans in charge.

REMEMBER: THESE PEOPLE AREN'T LIKE THE REST OF US!!

72. "Not normal protocol for political campaigns" but then again

this is no ordinary politician. This one thinks he is the only one who knows how to be a businessman and there is just no way a business man like RMoney is going to tolerate a loss. Campaign credit cards open when the campaign ends are a loss. Hey, money is money!

75. The vindictiveness of this shallow man is incredible

But this is no terrible surprise to those of us who had had a good grasp on what an incompetent and shallow idiot he was as a human being.

83. Charming

And the labor lawyers are rubbing their hands together now. There is some expectation here that if the campaign flew you to Boston and put you in a hotel room, the campaign wouldn't leave you stranded and stuck with the hotel bill if the useless candidate lost.

There could be a settlement here: we will pay your reasonable expenses if you don't write a tell-all book.

89. The GOP LOVES the 1-2% and hates the rest.

What is amazing is the reaction of the 1% after Rmoney lost...they just could not understand WHY we would not want to elect Rmoney.

93. Ya that was amazing, it was as if they thought they paid

enough money for the new CEO to replace the old CEO. How shocking and out of touch they are.

98. That's just how the United Corporations of America do business.

And quite frankly, if the whole truth were known, the 1% and their Corporate entities probably did pay large sums of money to influence the election in their direction, and I don't mean legal influences.

95. I was talking to my son about this

and he wasn't quite grasping the impact of this asinine move unti I told him.

This is like taking a date to the prom and making her walk home because she wouldn't have sex with you. She's going to be pissed the next day and start bad mouthing you to anyone who will listen.

It hasn't taken long to find out that rMoney really didn't have a concession speech, was planning on a $25,000 fireworks show, made his workers pay for their own ride home, charged journalist for access on election night, was totally shocked he lost and had a private, elite reception for his big donors.

The leaks have only just begun. I can't wait for the full implosion. I am evil like that.
