Mitt Romney has officially bid his presidential campaign adieu, and now comes the long unwind:
Some top donors privately unloaded on Romney’s senior staff, describing it as a junior varsity operation that failed to adequately insulate and defend Romney through a summer of relentless attacks from the Obama campaign over his business career and personal wealth.
“Everybody feels like they were a bunch of well-meaning folks who were, to use a phrase that Governor Romney coined to describe his opponent, way in over their heads,” said one member of the campaign’s national finance committee, who requested anonymity to speak candidly.
“Romney World,” the fundraiser added, “will fade into the obscurity of a lot of losing campaigns.”
Thanks to the Internet, we’re actually able to watch this unfold in real-time as supporters “unlike” Romney’s facebook page — on disappearingromney.com.
This is one unpopular program that Romney can truthfully say he cut after this election: his online campaign.
