    Willard Romney, Cutting of The Help for Good


    By Charles P. Pierce at 3:29PM

    One last time, let's reiterate: In the House of Romney, there are only two kinds of people — Romneys and The Help:


    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.
    .

    Classic.

    They're all lucky they're not working in China now.

    Is this report even true? Also I was never a paid supporter but is this that much of an unusual action with credit cards after an election period is over? I have no idea. Kind of hard to get all over one candidate when it could be status quo for these things.

    Mitt Romney's Campaign Cancels Staffers Credit Cards In The Middle Of The Night - Forbes

    <excerpt>
    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.

    No doubt a whole host of Boston taxi drivers found themselves stiffed when it came to tips early Wednesday morning. That’s what happens when the money trickles up, not down.

    This is why healthy economies don’t depend on the trickle down whims of overlords. The minute Richie Rich decides he doesn’t need all that stuff staff … well, that’s that.

    Just seemed kind of tabloidesque as written. I hate commenting on things that might not be true or might be SOP.

    No. It's not, dope.

    Learn to click links. There's a prominent one in the first line of the story.

    Damn, you're thick.

    Thanks. Looks like NBC was the first to report this. I have no idea what the protocol is with these campaign issued credit cards or their max amounts but having loose cards active after an election loss might be a bad idea? No?
