    Actually, the answer to that question was answered right in the video/transcript:

    "It is simply immoral, in my view, for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids..."

    He didn't say disaster relief was immoral; he said passing debt on to our kids was immoral.  

    Instead of repeating the very Republican tactic of taking words out of context to make it appear a politician has made some outrageous statement, wouldn't it be nice if people here on the Daily Kos just stuck with the truth (which is usually bad enough?)

    •  The 1% has few needs, why should they pay (0+ / 0-)

      taxes to support the 99% who have needs?  That's immoral.  

      Pretty much is what he said.

      We should look at what we need.  Is what he said.  We = 1%.  Is what I said.

      I give the Big Bird to those who say Obama lost the debate.

      •  I wasn't commenting on what you said, (0+ / 0-)

        (which I agree with); I was commenting on what the diarist said, which was: "Romney in primary: Federal disaster relief 'immoral'"...which is not what he said.  I think it would serve us all better not to argue with straw men, but to argue against what was really said.
