First came the terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which saw Romney criticizing President Obama and trying to score cheap political points even before anyone stateside knew fully what had happened. Even media figures and fellow Republicans were appalled. And then he followed that by revealing himself as a complete fool during the second presidential debate, when again trying to score cheap political points he was caught repeating debunked falsehoods about the president's response to the Benghazi attack.
Now comes a horrendous disaster that has cost dozens of lives and staggering devastation, and while the federal government steps up to rescue and repair and rehabilitate, even though Romney and the Republicans would have limited or eliminated its ability to do so, Romney again sees nothing but political opportunity, with a poorly staged campaign event disguised as a relief effort. Of course, if Romney actually cared about those impacted by the storm that tore through the Northeastern quarter of this country, he has those pallets of cash safely stashed in tax havens in the Cayman Islands and the Bahamas and Switzerland, from which he easily could contribute far far more than with a ham-handed staged event that doesn't even provide what the Red Cross says is actually needed. But Romney doesn't care about those in need; as always, Romney cares only about himself. Even in the face of so much suffering, Romney, as always, cares only about himself.
People with normal human emotions react to events such as Benghazi and Sandy with horror, sorrow, compassion, empathy, determination and resolve. Romney displays no recognizable human emotions at all. A vulture capitalist playing vulture politics, Romney sees crises of human suffering and need as but political opportunities. It's the kind of person he is. And he wants to use that suffering and need as but props in his drive to become president. It's the kind of person he is.
