Conversation with a Romney Staffer

On Saturday I met my friend's sister, who was a full-time, paid member of the Mitt Romney 2012 presidential campaign. I was introduced to her as "someone else who works in politics," though I haven't worked professionally in politics for some time.

I started by asking her whether she saw the Obama win coming. She said she was totally blindsided, had no idea it could happen. She said her and everyone else working for Team Romney thought he had it in the bag. I asked her if she followed InTrade to see how professional oddsmakers viewed the contest. She had never heard of the website. I asked what she thought of all of the fraud that occurred in the primaries and caucuses that benefitted Romney. She said she never knew of such a thing. In fact, I don't think she believed any of it when I told her. I told her that even if she didn't believe my claims of fraud in Maine, Louisiana, Missouri, and other states (where it was all captured on video and posted on YouTube) that she had to have seen it at the Republican National Convention. After all, she worked at the convention, so how could she not have known about it. She said she attended every minute of the convention, but wasn't aware that Romney and Priebus threw out a lot of Paul's delegates around the country. She also wasn't aware of the fact that Paul was nominated from the floor or that the party changed the rules so that they can nominate whoever they want, regardless of the wishes of the actual party members.

Friends, I think this is typical of the type of Republicans who supported Romney. She was a paid campaign worker and apparently followed politics. She could not have been more clueless about anything that occurred during the primaries or the general. She's also completely out of the loop on the post-election purging of libertarians and real conservatives from the party. Just thought you'd like to know why so many in the party think WE ARE THE CRAZY ONES--they have no clue what's actually going on out there; no clue what party leadership is doing and what they're supporting by default when they blindly follow them.

I believe that if you search YouTube for "obama romney same" that you get something useful:

Edit:

This is really powerful as an eye-opener when shown at the right moment to the right people

Are there people being paid just because

they are stupid? She attended every minute of the convention and doesn't have a clue about what Team Romney and Company pulled there? You can't fix stupid. No wonder they think we're crazy! We may be crazy but, we are not stupid.

I don't think she's stupid

I think she's paid to be busy and not think for herself, but rather show her peers that she can accomplish the tasks they give her.

Poor girl

I feel sorry for her.

she should be embarrassed

she should be embarrassed with herself if not ashamed! This is what the status quo establishment banks on and she delivered. She helped elect obama by supporting a criminal in obamney!

Just want what seems to be missing, Truth and Justice for ALL
What is fraud except creating “value” from nothing and passing it off as something?

That's a perfect phrase to describe her

and all the other "supporters" that came out for Romney.

So empty.

maybe being offended

will make her stop and think...

nah, never mind.

There was no "blind side" -

heads were totally buried in the sand with no vision whatsoever.

I have several family members who experienced this as well.
