Romney campaign spent $25,000 on fireworks

Romney campaign spent $25,000 on fireworks

BOSTON (AP) — Mitt Romney’s campaign had planned an eight-minute, $25,000 fireworks show to celebrate a presidential victory that never materialized.

The fireworks were scheduled to be shot from a barge in Boston Harbor within sight of the Republican’s election night party at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

Instead, Atlas Professional Fireworks Displays unloaded the pyrotechnics from mortars on the barge and carted them back to company headquarters in Jaffrey, N.H.

A permit filed with the city said the fireworks show could have occurred between 7 p.m. Tuesday, just after the first polls closed, and 12:30 a.m. Wednesday.

That could have paid for a lot of cab rides!

2. LOL

 

It really shows the bubble he was in. If someone offered me $1 million or the opportunity to have been in the room with Romney that night to see the look on his face when battleground after battleground went into the Obama column. Man...there's some things that are just priceless.

Can you imagine the bubble that he was in? Now imagine the bubble he would be in sitting in had he been elected? Surrounded by yes men, and others giving policy advice. It's pretty frightening.

I'm sure the locals would have loved that.

11. It's amazing how manipulated they were - or how truly stupid

No time to read the polls?

They live in a bubble for sure, and who does fireworks for elections? Weird!

I remember how cruel they were after they stole the election in 2000. I'm enjoying every minute of pain and disappointment they have.

16. That might explain what happened about 15 minutes ago ...

I thought I heard "fireworks" going off ...

I also thought that the revolution had started without me ... (not that I was going against Obama).

17. You would have thought by now that Romney would have donated some money . .

. . to the victims of Hurricane Sandy, and make sure to let that little item leak out to the press that he had donated.

Especially since during the campaign Romney said that people down on their luck or in need should rely on charity instead of big government.

Show me the money!
Put your money where your mouth is, Mitt!!


I don't see how Romney can live with himself, building a mansion, complete with a car elevator, after seeing his life-long dream of becoming the first Mormon President of the United States dashed to pieces by such a horrific storm as Hurricane Sandy.

Maybe it was just all hot air intended to make people like him; that he didn't really mean it when he said he believed that the poor and the less unfortunate people in this country should rely on charitable acts.

Maybe it was just complete bullshit used to try and fool people into believing that wealthy people actually care for people who are down on their luck or have been victims of large storms like hurricanes; that he never intended to help people in need or people who have seen their lives turned totally upside down or had their homes completely destroyed.

Maybe it was just the last 32 years of pure propaganda that the Republicans have regurgitated like a broken record ever since 1980, telling the poor and those less fortunate that charities will look after them, that their churches will meet their every need, and that big government was the problem in their lives, rather than an organization that could actually do something for them to make their lives better.
