Romney Admits Defeat, Then Shits All Over the Help
I was planning to give politics a rest for a few days. But this story is just too funny. Or sick, or appalling, or something.
As soon as Mitt Romney finished giving his concession speech Tuesday night, the first thing he did was cancel all the credit cards that had been issued by the Romney/Ryan 2012 campaign.
God only knows how many jillions of Romney/Ryan campaign staffers were left suddenly stranded, twisting in the wind. Oh I’m sorry, were you planning to check out of your hotel? You wanted to purchase an airline ticket back home after a grueling campaign?
Tough shit. You don’t exist any more. Mitt Romney says you’re last week’s newspaper; yesterday’s coffee grounds. Buh bye now.
Somehow, this just figures. The Gordon Gekko clone who bought, chewed up and spat out companies (and their employees) left and right, the sheltered Blueblood who dismisses half of the population as moochers and parasites because they don’t earn enough money to pay federal income taxes — it makes perfect sense that this self-absorbed sociopath would shit all over his employees the minute he doesn’t need them any more.
The more stories like this that are trickling out — and there are a lot of them — the clearer it gets: We dodged a bullet. The election wasn’t close, and yet, forty-eight percent of the voters wanted Marie Antoinette to take over the White House.
And no, it’s NOT standard procedure for a candidate to drop his/her campaign staff like a hot potato the minute the campaign is over. A Forbes Magazine columnist wrote:
“In case you are wondering, this did not have to happen. The Mitt Romney for President entity does not end with Romney’s Tuesday night loss. There are papers to be filed with various federal commissions and bills to be paid.”
This incident — and dozens of others — speaks volumes about what kind of person Mitt Romney is. Thank God, Allah, the Unified Force Field, whoever/whatever that this arrogant puke didn’t get elected.
On Election Night, Mitt Romney didn’t have a concession speech prepared. But he DID have $25,000 worth of fireworks with which to celebrate his certain victory.
The hubris before the fall.
