In reply to:
The former governor's team hasn't been doing much on social media lately to persuade people to stick around. After a flurry of activity leading up to the election, his official Facebook and Twitter accounts went silent for four days afterward. On Saturday, the campaign finally posted a photo of a sad-looking Romney with the message, "From the bottom of our hearts, Ann and I thank you for your support, prayers, efforts and vote. We are forever grateful to every one of you."

One explanation is that the staffers who manage these accounts either move on or are typically given new responsibilities after an election. It's unlikely that Obama or Romney were posting to Facebook and Twitter very often themselves.

I read about this too. A lot of them only found out when they tried to use the cards to pay the cab fare after going home.

Here's a link to a story about it:

http://www.ibtimes.com/...-credit-cards-869440

I have no idea about the credibility of the source, although they appear to have used words incorrectly in at least two places.

For example:

In reply to:
Garrett Haake on NBC News-First Read blog detailed the dissembling process of Romney/Ryan campaign soon after Romney’s concession speech

Or maybe they did mean to use that word after all Laugh

In reply to:
dis·sem·ble
[dih-sem-buhl] Show IPA verb, dis·sem·bled, dis·sem·bling.
verb (used with object)
1.
to give a false or misleading appearance to; conceal the truth or real nature of: to dissemble one's incompetence in business.
