You ever been around people who have suffered terrible misfortunes? You ever been the one who they looked to for answers? I have and its a little stressful. If you had you would know exactly what I'm talking about. Just confine yourself to judging from the cheap seats.
Obama had long since declared the area a federal disaster area. Freeing up $$$ to help these people. I guess the really important thing is to see which candidate can race to LA to get the scoop photo opp with the disaster victims. Score one for Romney, then.
I'll give Romney this much credit. He did better than Bush/"Brownie" during Katrina.
Declared it a disaster area but couldn't be bothered to go there. By the way Romney can't declare it a disaster area he's a private citizen Strange a private citizen acting more presidential than the president .
It appears your source isn't being completely truthful.
First, this is a secondhand account, we don't know if those were Romney's exact words, but the gist is that he was advising her of the resources in play. The person who spoke to Romney didn't say she was offended by what he said, she said "He’s good. He’ll do the best for us. He has our best interests at heart. I thought he’d be more like a politician, but it was more understanding and caring."
It could have been a slight slip of the tongue on either of their parts. It could have been that she didn't specifically tell him that she had lost her home. We definitely can't judge this off of one secondhand snippet, and the fact that she spoke highly of him makes me wonder why you are taking such offense.
Not true. He said it and it indicates a great lack of capability for a president who should expect to be showing up at disaster sites. He is not even the president yet and should have stayed away if that is the best he can do.
What Romney REALLY said, "Quick, go call 211 while you still can. Once Paul and I get elected, that's the end of the line for the hurricane gravy train."
Republicans have proposed cuts in federal disaster funding that will now be needed to aid the Gulf Coast's recovery, reported the AP:
"It is the height of hypocrisy for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to make a pretense of showing sympathy for the victims of Hurricane Isaac when their policies would leave those affected by this disaster stranded and on their own," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in a written statement.
Maybe Romney proposes to bring in the Mormons to handle disaster aid.
Well, I'm sure that no matter what the Mormons will be onsite helping... their humanitarian system is truly astonishing. I can't remember who it was, but one of the LDS prophets set a standard for the church to be able to arrive at any disaster site with aid within 24 hours, in any country it is allowed to be in.
As for cuts, I haven't personally looked at or seen any details of either Romney or Ryan that address domestic aid funding.
He is clearly a pathological and habitual liar. He has poor control over his explosive temper. He giggles when confronted about disturbing behavior he has done in the past. Who is stupid enough to vote for a man who has...
I do not feel anger, contempt or scorn. I do feel pride, but not what I believe this article is talking about (e.g., egotistical, self pride).If that is what you value, your choice for president is clear.Vote for Mitt...
