Magic_Button: I am only surprised Romney and family did not start grabbing the platters of food from the buffet table and hustle them back to their Limos for safe keeping when Obama's numbers were coming in


That was a Clinton tactic LOL

coeyagi: As shiatty as the conservatives behaved before election night, they are opening up a whole new chapter on Biblical assholiness.

Is Dick Morris the only slimey sh*tstain who apologized for being such a wrong dickhead? There are thousands of them, but Toesucker Prime is the only one I've seen own up to be being a full-fledged f*ckbag.


I had to hand it to Dickie after I saw the vid of him stating his face was in the mud. He took his bow, and put it in his hair. The other talking heads are too busy saying welfare voters screwed the country. I wonder when the poll of voters turned off by Romney's Mormon background will appear?

theknuckler_33: tinyarena: theknuckler_33: Having a hard time thinking this is a big deal. I don't believe for a second that Romney personally had anything to do with it and I have no doubt any personal expenses will be reimbursed.

Romney got his ass kicked... it's over. I'm not interested in any manufactured outrage about him personally at this point. Who farking cares. He's done. That's all that matters.

Honestly theknuckler_33, there is a valid point to all of this. It shows us exactly what kind of people we were up against here. From the arrogance of running a sloppy campaign, to the willful ignorance of unskewing the already unskewed polls, to the indifference of not even getting their own people home, I'd say we're lucky we didn't put "those people" in charge.

/again

I'm just not getting that vibe from this. The campaign was over, time to shut things down. I'm sure they didn't want people buying tons of shiat on the cards on their way home. This way, people fork out of pocket and have to submit receipts that show legit expenses. Every business works this way. If a business were closing its doors, they'd cancel company credit cards right away because it is easier to reimburse people for legit expenses than it is to recoup money from people you are no longer sending paychecks to for illegitimate charges they may have put on the company credit card as they were being booted out the door.

I mean, I guess I can see that this says something about Romney personally or his campaign in general... but he already lost. He's done. Who cares at this point? Does this make me MORE glad that he didn't get elected? Not even a little bit. If that makes you feel better that he wasn't elected... that's cool. It doesn't do anything for me, that's all.

Who is the Daily Gamecock? who the fk goes to USC to get a retail management degree? how is it Obama's fault she can't use a degree like that? and being a good Mormon girl (with a last name like 'Kats' I'd expect Jewish), why the fk wasn't she at BYU or Utah or Hawaii or Idaho preparing for babymaking, instead of the devil's playground LA?

and how the fk would being Mormon hold her back from holding office? was she talking out of ass, like middle schoolers who talk about being firemen and astronauts and doctors and lawyers, but who don't really have a plan it just sounds good?

Yep. All remaining campaign money is going to be laundered into cash for Mitt. He wins either way.

Gosling: Next question: after getting that story to tell when they get back home, how many of these people are going to be disinclined to volunteer for the next time around?

I'm sure this has been linked in some other thread, or someone has submitted it, but I just saw this so I'm posting it to show the contrast between the two candidates:

Obama Cries As He Thanks Campaign Staff After Victory (VIDEO)

The way he talks about how his community organizing shaped him as a person, and how he feels his volunteers and staff are better than he was at their age, and how they all will go on to do great things with their lives, and how profoundly thankful he is that they put their lives on hold to help him accomplish something great... I didn't think it was possible to be happier Obama was re-elected, but here we are. Disagree with him all you want, but damn, how can you not like him?

Dear Jerk: theknuckler_33
... I have no doubt any personal expenses will be reimbursed.

I'm a cynic too. Cry me a river when people come forward about not being reimbursed, OK? I like facts, not speculation.
 
2012-11-09 12:39:31 AM  
Have you guys worked for a company and they've issued company credit cards? The first they do is ask for your company cards when you quit or laid off. This is no different.. the campaign is over, no more credit cards.

It's funny because that's exactly how either a robot or douchebag CEO would think.

"Ceasing campaign. Cease all disbursement of funds immediately. Exterminate! Exterminate!"

Or: "Ladies and gentlemen here tonight, I must concede defeat to Barack Obama. I want to thank you personally for how hard you have worked, and God bless. Now I hope you brought cab fare because I cancelled your charge accounts before I even took the stage. Was the first thing I did when Ohio came back."

and how the fk would being Mormon hold her back from holding office? was she talking out of ass, like middle schoolers who talk about being firemen and astronauts and doctors and lawyers, but who don't really have a plan it just sounds good?
