Romney - Hey thanks everybody for all of your hard work, all those long nights, your tireless effort. Oh BTW, your campaign credit cards have already been cut so your on your own as far as cab rides home tonight. What a tool. Now I understand you don't want to leave those cards active for long but could you at least let those workers get home that night?
I hope this story grows legs. Great example of the Romney mentality.

Of all the indignities involved in losing a presidential race, none is more stark than the sudden emptiness of your entourage. The Secret Service detail guarding Governor Romney since Feb 1. stood down quickly. He had ridden in a 15-car motorcade to the Intercontinental Hotel in Boston for his concession speech. He rode in a single-car motorcade back across the Charles River to Belmont. His son, Tagg, did the driving.
I'm clearly a horrible person, for the image of Tagg driving – and Romney suddenly without his entourage – brings nothing but a smile to my face. A smile I'm sure Tagg didn't share, or his brother Josh for that matter:
