So Romney donated 5gs worth of crap to the Red Cross, from their site -
Unfortunately, due to logistical constraints the Red Cross does not accept or solicit individual donations or collections of items. Items such as collected food, used clothing and shoes must be sorted, cleaned, repackaged and transported which impedes the valuable resources of money, time, and personnel.
The Red Cross does accept bulk quantities of product and services when these items meet our service delivery needs. These donations typically come from manufacturers, suppliers, and/or distributors that can package the items in bulk, palletize them and transport them directly to Red Cross sites. Financial contributions allow the Red Cross to purchase exactly what is needed for a disaster relief operation. Monetary donations also enable the Red Cross to purchase relief supplies close to the disaster site which avoids delays and transportation costs in getting basic necessities to disaster victims. Because the affected community has generally experienced significant economic loss, purchasing relief supplies in or close to the disaster site also helps to stimulate the weakened local economy.

Mitt is clearly out of touch with the people, like Bush Sr. It's almost painful to watch.

We'd both be surprised at how much the wealthy donate to different organizations in times like this.

President Obama handed a domestic disaster, similar to that handed to President Bush with Katrina.
the difference is that the folks flooded out on the Jersey Shore are a high percentage of one-percenters....contrasted to the pond scum of New Orleans.....

good to see Obama doing something for rich folks for a change....redistributing tax money to the wealthy....
