  •  I'm not going to pin that one on Willard (4+ / 0-)

    I can't imagine that was foremost on his mind at the time, when to cut off everyone's credit. Probably some Neidermeier staffer, some Grover Norquist type campaign accountant.

    There are two types of republicans, the rich and the stupid. The rich ones strive to keep the stupid ones stupid and the stupid ones strive to keep the rich ones rich.

    •  Really? (4+ / 0-)

      EVERYONE under Romney in that campaign is what Romney is all about, they took his lead---it was a top down operation, in the worst possible way.

      And I remind you that Willard Mitt Romney has NEVER had any problem pulling the rug out from under people. His whole career has been about pulling the rug out from underneath workers to make profit for him and Bain.

      Romney is done with his volunteers, his aides, his strategists, his fans, his funders and his voters. The most important thing to him is that he lost, and how the hell did that happen?

      ANY reasonable, grateful, and/or humble person would have seen to it that his campaign workers had 24 hour notice that their credit cards would no longer work. God knows, he threw money around like King Midas right up to the very end.

      Nope, the buck stops at Mitt Romney's desk, for his own campaign workers.  He's a selfish, entitled, arrogant man, and I honestly feel sorry for anyone who invested any heart in his campaign

      Romney picked the folks who ran his campaign finances. He is responsible for the character flaws of the organization because hell, if they did good, it's his work as well.

      So, regardless of whether he called the shot, the decision was made through his leadership.
