You know, the more I think about this the angrier I grow.  These staffers were the heart and soul of the campaign.  Blood, sweat and tears for the duration of the campaign and they are cast aside like garbage into the gutter.

Mitt Romney, you are the scum of the Earth, the lowest of low.  How proud I am that the majority of voters had you pegged dead on for the scoundrel you really are.   Goodbye and good riddance.  We don't need leaders like you.

I read some stuff about Romney and his cash problems today, it was a piece done by a neutral group..just saying he was cash strapped since the primaries.

It doesnt shock me that he would do this..but it is not something to applaud or reward..

And just think the outcry from a select few members had this been the other way around.

Whats really fun is how the left wants to be the judge on how other people should spend their own money ..

These staff members need to take personal responsibility .... Paying for their expenses creates a cycle of dependency.....

That is nowhere near the SS you would put if the parties were reversed..you would be posting this within 5 minutes of it hitting the wires.

You are the worst offender in this forum for peddling stuff like this.

when they checked into the hotel wouldn't the cards have been charged then?  so there would be no need for them anymore.

so when you go to hotel you pay when you check in by credit card?


This speaks to romney and money/finances...

This election was about the economy and America voiced its opinion on romney and his ability to manage money/finances...

Mitt Romney had already arranged for his staff to receive severance pay through the end of November....and that wasn't cancelled..

The cc cards would have been handled by the campaign's top finance manager, not by Romney ..   and I guess the manager,as a true Republican .. he didn't feel it was right to continue to reward failure..

Had the situation been reversed and it was Democrat campaign staffers, they probably would have been free to run up the bill ordering bottles Cristal champagne and foie gras off the room service menu ..

it is a bit rough though to stop payment in the middle though. I can see giving them a heads up that cards will be cancelled once they checkout of the hotels but to do it in the middle is rough.

You're damn right. Have a final drink on us.

We would get paid for our work, not if the boss fails.

this is a very good point. if the boss fails then you still get paid for the work already done. After that point than the boss decides that he has to make some cuts.

That has not a single thing to do with this circumstance please check back in to your local psych ward.

On the other side.. President Obama crying as he thanked staffers the day after his re-election. ...but where were the tears as the four flag-draped coffins returned from Benghazi ?

I'm certain there were tears shed in private over Benghazi.

Now, since you brought up the subject of tears, there is indeed a sharp contrast between Obama and Romney.  Obama's heart-felt appreciation for his ground force shows he genuinely cares about people.  The same cannot be said about Romney.  Raiding profitable businesses and closing them down to fill your greedy pockets while hundreds of American employees get laid-off is not the definition of a nice guy.

How about this instead..stop doing it and spare the rest of the group the torture of such lame threads and messages.

You bring this on yourself..and it is hilarious when you try and play the other side when you are the worst offender here.
