Somber faces, anger at Romney election night party in Boston

Romney-Ryan supporters gathered in a ballroom at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center watched Fox News project a win for President Obama in Ohio with silence and somber faces. Some booed when the livestream in the ballroom switched to CNN anchor Candy Crowley.

GOP political consultants in the press filing center stared in shock at the TV screens and furiously scrolled through headlines on their smartphones.

"First step is acceptance," her colleague replied.

"OK, seriously, I'm moving to Texas," the woman said.
