    That sounds right but in Romney's case I would not be surprised if he pays himself a fat check for reimbursement. Either that or his campaign was near insolvency anyways.

    It is a sad statement though leaving your campaign workers high and dry. Nice touch Mitt.

    I would assume they go to the RNC and are used for future campaigns. But that's a guess on my end...

    So does leaving 4 Americans to die in a foreign country only to cover it up to not ruin your election chances, speak to Obama's character?

    I can understand this a security thing, if you the campagin is indeed over, cancelling them makes sense..cause you dont want aids going out and buying tvs and you never see them again...Even tho I suspect it would never happen.

    Oh, I didn't know we were dealing in hyperbole. I can do that, too. Romney's magic underwear is why he lost...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    If his entire campaign had been this efficient, maybe he wouldn't have lost so badly.

    its pretty well known now that the administration covered it up. thats like me saying we shouldnt rush to judgement about iraq because we still havent found WMD's. romney and obama have both done things to discredit themselves numerous time. unfortunetly for you, you are seeing everything behind partisan glasses.

    So I wasted 5 minutes of my time to follow your suggestion. Who knows I may be wrong. But I wasn't.

    Your
    So does leaving 4 Americans to die in a foreign country only to cover it up to not ruin your election chances, speak to Obama's character?
    is still in the wrong thread.

    a) Obama did not leave anybody to day anywhere. That accusation is almost ridiculous as it implies intend by the President.
    b) This thread is about the US not a foreign country. I assume with your above suggestion which shows your hatred for a black President you are referring to Benghazi. Also this thread is not about Benghazi.
    c) this thread is about post election not pre election
    d) THis thread is about Romney's lack of good character not about Obama's character

    Why don't you defend Romney rather than pulling out a ridiculous accusation against his opponent which has nothing to do with the subject on hand?

    because the administration said the reason for the attack was because of an anti-muslim film and that it was spontanious. when in fact, it was a coordinated attack in that had to do with a muslim propoganda film. the administration tried to pass the buck thinking that we were too stupid to see that it was terrorism. read a newspaper.
