<quoted text>According to you he doesn't need Obama's help - The state and local governments in the areas most affected prepared beforehand and didn't leave their citizens behind to fend for themselves.
Sometimes one has to fend for themselves until help arrives. Been there, done that 3 different times over a span of 3 months when Florida was plummetted that one year.

The governor of Louisiana and the mayor of New Orleans knew a hurricane 5 was heading right towards them. Those people in New Orleans should have been evacuated long before it hit.

Comparing this storm to Katrina is like comparing apples to oranges.

That's all I'm saying. There's only so much preparation that can be done in a storm like this one. The low lying areas on the coast were pretty much evacuated. Even though it's sad 50 people died, considering the scope of this storm and the number of people in Manhattan alone, the state and local governments did a pretty good job considering that number could have been a lot higher.

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.

So now what, they have to bend over backwards to get this crap delivered?
You must be the reason someone came up with the saying "no good deed goes unpunished."

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....
