Politics aside, it's foolish to develop a system and only test it on virtual-machines rather than in the real world. There should have been several real world tests, including a mock-election type scenario to work out the issues long before the election. As it was they had volunteers standing about not knowing what to do when they could have been making worthwhile contributions to the campaign. Unfortunately they only have themselves to blame.

To build Orca, the Romney campaign turned to Microsoft and an unnamed application consulting firm.

"For whatever reasons, the conservative bloggers have latched onto Orca as the reason it all fell apart," Moffatt added. Those bloggers have suggested that developers with Democratic sympathies somehow acted as a fifth column within the Romney camp. Targeted Victory was singled out by some bloggers because a few of its developers worked for Al Gore in the past.
"Why do they have Al Gore's dev working on Romney's social media development?!" blogger Catherine Ann Fitzpatrick asked. "Truly, how can they expect dedication?" She also singled out another developer who is African-American and "who has a 96 percent chance of being an Obama voter… I will be accused of 'racism' for even flagging. But it's the truth."

As one Orca user described it to Ars, the entire episode was a "huge cluster****."

who loves money. ****ing off clients would be a great way to not get them in the future!
One big part of the problem is getting services from Microsoft, a company that is a huge Obama/ Democratic Party supporter.
