The Romney campaign lost no time shutting off the money faucet. Too bad his employees had not gotten done with the election night business before he did so.

Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.

We would have been on our own at about 1p.m. Eastern time January 21, 2013 as well.

Except for not being a few handfuls of underpaid over worked interns we would have been in the same boat at that time. I could picture him selling off our national treasures at fire sale prices. And doing everything possible to exploit the riches the people of America have built over generations to the highest bidder.

Look what he did to the loyal workers that stayed with him past the end to make sure everything was put into order.

Charles P. Pierce at Esquire says this:


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

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
