While the POTUS and the Governors were taking care of biz in the wake of Sandy, Mitt was putting on a show where he disguised a political event as a storm relief event.

The Onion is so good at that.

Jon Stewart is even better.

The Making Of Romney's Storm Relief Event
So he's got a venue, ready and set up for a campaign event, the streamers are hung, celebrities are booked, hell people are practically driving to the event. Then a city gets taken out, let me ask, what would you want him to do? Fly home, sit on the couch and watch TV? Maybe he could go to the White House and start coordinating relief.

This is almost as bad as a "news" channel attacking him because he's collecting food in Ohio, with the comments

"Why Ohio"

"You know – right because the storm is kind of –"

"Not in Ohio!"




because we all know that when a storm decimates a city, you run to the middle of that city and start collecting food for the people in said city. Maybe he could set up in the middle of 50 burned out homes and collect canned goods... maybe he can stand waist deep in water looking for someone to drop off blankets...



Earthquake hits Haiti, you go to Haiti before collecting food, Tsunami hits Japan, you go to Japan before you collect food...


I'm no fan of either one of the candidates, but attacking someone because he's collecting food for a disaster stricken city is a new kind of low.

Christie can look past political lines during emergencies, why can't others?

Welcome back!

Of course not. Turning it into a fund raiser was a good idea but if he was really concerned about helping, he should have asked the Red Cross how to do it. They have repeatedly said NOT to collect canned goods but to send money and give blood. Of course that wouldn't look as good on camera as pretending to take the food he bought at Walmart himself.

Canned goods take more resources than they give. They have to be separated, organized and trucked into the area. Then much of them can't even be used by people without power. The Red Cross tells us that during every disaster. There are much more efficient things to do.

Text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate to Disaster Relief efforts

If he would have used his platform to tell people how to really help. Maybe set-up a blood bank truck at the location and repeat the ways to donate, he could have done some real good and got better press. Had he actually been concerned with helping more than the photo op. He, and his campaign, just don't seem to think that way.

It's just like a while back when Ryan went to a shelter, forced his way in, and got pictures of himself washing dishes that were already washed.

Eh... not completely back. Just something I can finally write about... :-D

From the little bit I've read, he did buy food, but also had people bring some in. It's comparable to putting your own money in the tip jar when you set it up. People don't want to be seen as stingy, so you're more likely to get tips when you do that. On top of that, with such short notice, he had no idea how many people would show to donate... I would have done the same thing. At the very worst, I donated some food to New York.

While there may be more efficient ways, anyway that gets supplies to those in need should be praised, photo-op or not. Hell, he could probably truck them there on his own dime if anything

I've read that he had that message up on his screens at the event, I've got no pictures to confirm though. Not that I've had the time to look...

He had less than a day to convert over to a relief fund, I'm not sure, but I would think the blood bank truck would need a bit of time to schedule a set up, unless you know some nursing students that need the practice. I don't think either campaign thinks that way...

I'm sure all of Obama's photo-ops were good and none were set up... part of campaigning these days seems to be set up photo-ops.

Then who can forget flying a plane over New York with military escorts... There's a great idea that has no negatives.

He really said "...no man will be left behind..." after Benghazi...

But most of y'all won't know about the Navy Seal Tyrone Woods since you get your news from the Obama campaign media.

Gimme a break. With the money these campaigns spend and the logistics people they have, they could have easily set up a blood bank truck. For a venue that size, I would guess the Red Cross or local Medical Group could have put something together.

Show me something similar that Obama has set up and I'll knock it as well. Especially if it was during a major crisis. I certainly knocked the plane/escort thing too but in that case, I believe some heads rolled.

What, exactly are they waiting for? Both sides are talking continuously about the need for jobs. Romney intends to use his years of experience in the business world to get the economy going in order for better paying jobs to be created.

Are they waiting for either candidate to get up there and tell these people that they are going to get bigger handouts? If this is the case, they're going to be waiting a long time.
