  •  Our mayor, not Gov. Romney came through for us (7+ / 0-)

    I live in Amesbury which was hit hard by that storm. The dam holding back the Pow Wow River in the Mill Yard area in the center of town was about to be breeched. Our mayor who is a Major in the National Guard managed to get a detachment of guardsmen to sandbag downtown and build a trench to relieve some of the dam pressure. Had the dam failed, the damage to the center of town would have been in the millions. Where was Mitt? AWOL, rushing off to visit New Orleans during Hurricane Isaac.
