Excellently done. People are cutting their own throats if they vote for Romney the profiteer. Ask people in Massachusetts what they think of Romney especially after he denied them disaster relief.A natural disaster is a good time to reflect on what we need to do to avoid an unnatural disaster. Right now, that’s clearer than ever—don’t allow Mitt Romney to become president. When asked about FEMA in the primary debates, Mitt said responsibility for disaster relief should be foisted onto the states. How would you like to be in a life threatening situation, and be depending on Rick Scott or Jan Brewer for help? Evidently Mitt was concerned that wasn’t crazy enough for base, because he added “And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better.” Got that? If you’re flooded, call Goldman Sachs! Mitt wants for-profit disaster relief! Mitt, there are already private-sector people taking part in disaster relief—those slime-balls who do things like sell bottled water for $10 a bottle. Mitt wants that on a corporate scale
*In his last year as governor, Romney refused to provide state assistance when major floods hit western Massachusetts., even though the state government had ample funds. http://legalplanet.wordpress.com/2012/10/29/r...
*Romney not only suggested shuttering FEMA and sending responsibility for disaster relief “back to the private sector,” but also said it would be “immoral” for the federal government to fund disaster relief efforts without cutting the budget elsewhere.“It makes no sense at all,” Romney concluded.
*We cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids,” Romney said, when asked directly about relief for victims in Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Massachusetts, and other communities hit by tornados and flooding should not receive governmental assistance. He argued it is “simply immoral” to have deficit spending that could harm future generations.(So it's better to harm the older generations by forcing them to give up their ancestral homes and farms?
Even Chris Cristy knows when it's time to stop demonizing our President and our government.*NJ Governor Christ Christie has been doing the rounds of the cable news shows expressing warm praise of Obama's handling of Hurricane Sandy.
He described Obama's cooperation as "wonderful" on MSNBC's Morning Joe, and "outstanding" on NBC's Today.
Meanwhile Romney is ducking questions about his FEMA remarks until his camp can tell him what exactly he meant to say. http://politix.topix.com/homepage/2695-romney...
