Romney-Ryan Prepare Assault On Spending
Romneyland is fired up.
The campaign headquarters of the soon-to-be Republican nominee has the air of a tech startup. Barebones furnishings, open spaces, lots of light streaming in and a layout that makes it hard to discern power structure.
Over here, a honcho sits at a conference table with his iPad and papers scattered in front of him barking into his cell phone. Over there, a worker bee sits in an office, quietly emailing away. (“She has real work to do,” the barking honcho would later joke.)
The campaign HQ is also unusual by campaign standards because of its relative calm and order.
The traditional headquarters is profane and carries a certain air of aggression — natural for a business dominated by high-testosterone alpha males. But Romneyland feels family-friendly and is more urgent than aggressive. Not surprisingly, given its leader, it’s very businesslike here.
