Wake up America--IF this man treated his staffers this way---God only knows how he would have treated the American people if he made it into office. So disingenious, those supporters and staffers campaigning for him worked hard and this is how you repay them Mitt?? Wow....
Mitt Romney cuts off campaign workers credit cards, leaves workers stranded - Detroit liberal | Examiner.com
and of course we are supposed to believe this, just because you read it in a liberal, blog...??? It is so sad, when some get their information from one side only and expect others to buy into it...If you want to believe this is true, good for you, but don't expect others to be so niave.

Now if you posted the CC were shut off so hotel expenses or other expenses were not covered during the campaign that would be different. But you took a slanted report, without having any clue what it is expected when someone is working on a political campaign and chose to post..Campaign workers are hired and work under totally different rules than a basic employee. Have you ever worked as a hired campaign worker? Well my husband has, in more than one campaign.

I doubt Mitt did this...some one on the staff started to wrap things up..and that was on the "to do" list.

FYI, campaigns do NOT normally cut off staffers the evening of the election. OFA staffers were paid thru Thursday at least, my FO is on the clock into next week. Mittens is a scumbag that back stabbed the ppl working for him.

The list you gave in the OP said TAXI RIDES, not plane tickets. I sat in campaign offices where EVERYONE KNEW at 7:45 the clock stops and EVERYTHING was done..

I've never ONCE heard of a company that paid their employees to go back and forth to work. Give it a break with your fake outrage...
Try pulling your head out of the sand once in a while

There was a Ford Exec not long ago who had paid use of the compnay jet to commute weekly to and from his family home in Florida.

Many Wall St workers have company paid car services bringing them to and from work.

That's becuz you were in a lame campaign organization. EVERY paid staffer, volunteer and support personnel for the obama campaign was trained and prepared to go into virtual phone banking mode when the polls closed. Preparations and plans for all hands on deck calling into the western states' GOTV operations were in place. NOBODY assumed we were done at 7:45.

Albeit, the ones that are left are our regulars and fit like a nice pair of bedroom slippers in their predictable opposition but for a while there, we had a real boiler room full of professional internet pundits who were father right than Atilla. Comments of our president like "scumbag" and "turd" were bandied about like popcorn at the movies. I can deal with and actually have an affinity with our usual loyal opposition but some of the others......not so much. I even got so hot I got banned for a while. But in the end, I'm still here and he's gone for good. At least until the next election.




The left only used descriptions of fairytales & sunshine?

Or they went back to their day jobs.
That picture you posted is the republican party today - but listen to the "traditionalists" all over this forum extolling its conservative virtues. Beyond pathetic, yet they persist.
