Recent insight on this story might lead you to believe that America did not choose the most efficient candidate for President. By the time GOP Candidate Mitt Romney finished his “thank you” speech to his supporters, Romney campaign aides realized that their campaign credit cards no longer worked. That’s right, the moment Romney realized he was not going to win, his campaign funding shut off entirely.
Romney didn’t seem to remember that even after he gives his concession speech and cries in his beer, his workers have to get home that night and that there are some election expenses that might still need to be taken care of. But rather than taking the bold step of making sure his workers were going to be OK, Mittens dropped them faster than Donald Trump needs to drop that ugly toupee.
Garrett Haake , a writer from NBC comments on the situation concerning Romney’s failed election. Haacke writes,
“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.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney arrives on stage to concede the election to President Barack Obama on November 7, 2012 in Boston.
“Fiscally conservative,” sighed one aide the next day.
In conversations on Wednesday, aides were generally wistful, not angry, at how the campaign ended. Most, like their boss, truly believed the campaign’s now almost comically inaccurate models, and that a victory was well within their grasp.
(Outside Republicans and donors are another story. Some are angry over what they felt was an overly rosy picture painted by the campaign, and at what amounts to the loss of their investment.)
Yesterday afternoon, campaign manager Matt Rhoades thanked the staff in one last meeting at the campaign’s Boston HQ, as did Romney and his wife, Ann.”
