  •  Romney and Disaster Relief: A TRUE Story (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Mitt Romney was in Louisiana after Hurricane Isaac this August.

    Based on his behavior as Governor of Massachusetts back in 2006, when we had some bad flooding here, I am not surprised that he showed up for a tour, AND DID NOTHING.

    Check out the story from 2006:

    The New England Flood of May 2006.

    On August 7, 2006, the Lowell Sun printed an editorial entitled "No Relief from Romney," which said in part:

    We find it inconceivable that Gov. Mitt Romney claims the state can do nothing to help those residents ... after the May flood. Massachusetts is sitting on millions in unspent emergency funds from Hurricane Katrina and more than $1 billion in cash reserves,  ...

    The governor's spokesman -- since Romney can't be bothered to comment now that the photo opportunities have dried up even though some residents' basements haven't -- said the state will not consider spending its own money  …

    It's been two months, governor.  ...

    If ignoring the pleas of legislators and constituents is the way Romney's going to handle a crisis situation, why would anyone vote for him for president? How would he handle a national crisis, by flying in for photo ops and then hiding in his White House office? …

    Yeah, NOW mittens has a disater relief event -- NOT POLITICAL ... YEAH, SURE.

    "The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave." -- Patrick Henry November 6, 2012 MA-4 I am voting for my friends Barry, Liz and Joe (Obama, Warren and Kennedy)
