  •  So, they know they're losing..... (7+ / 0-)

    ....but they go ahead and sign off on a victory party to keep spirits up for the 10 or 20 people who know about the fireworks display?

    This, by the way, is the same campaign that cut off everybody's credit cards as they were cabbing home from the concession speech, so don't tell me they didn't give a jack about money.

      It makes the BS all the more believable if you keep Ann and a few others in the dark.  Heck, maybe she wanted the firework display so Mitt bought it for her.  There's so many possibilities.

        this is just the "I like to fire people" Rmoney getting a hard-on at the thought of fucking over the people who "failed" him.

          a bunch of Republicans loose with your credit card and nothing to lose is a bad idea.

          Frankly, I don't blame the Romney folks for shutting down the credit cards.  If their minions were counting on those credit cards to get home that night, and made no effort to be prepared to pay their own way, it's their own damn fault.  I wouldn't want to tempt them to go on a spending spree or drinking binge with other people's money.

          I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    •  There is ample evidence that he has bad instincts (9+ / 0-)

      The Benghazi press conference. The Benghazi double down in Debate Two as he's walking into the trap. Coming up up short in campaign financing after give his staff a bonus for who knows what. The disastrous trip in Europe.

      The campaign seemed to be run on unequal parts of faith and data.

      We have to remember, when he thought nobody was looking, he rattled off wingnut reality after wingnut reality in his infamous 47% tape.

      Mitt actually believes that crap. That's why he was blindsided in Debate Two. His camp actually does not believe in being dictated to by fact checkers.

      As a Governor he had better instincts. He knew to look at polling data that told him don't run for a second term. But in his quest to be President for six years, it appears that good judgement became a casualty.

      The choice of our lifetime: Mitt Romney, It Takes A Pillage or President Barack Obama, Forward Together.

      Put together a comprehensive transition plan including website.  Nah...they snorted their own supply.

        adjective. They did a fair bit of cut and pasting.

        I suspect the Romney transition plans were every bit as substantive as the policies Romney campaigned on: gauzy window dressing and not much else.
