MSNBC on Tuesday totally trashed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney for collecting food and supplies at a storm rally event in Ohio to be sent to victims of Hurricane Sandy .
......besides the food and supplies that Ohioans generously donated, two large television screens asked participants to send money to the Red Cross.
But this didn’t make loony leftie Martin Bashir happy. Ditto his Obama-supporting guests.
“I think that this is just another moment where you see the clear striking difference between a president who has a heart for the American people and someone who simply wants to be president of the United States,” said Atlanta Mayor Reed.
“Indeed,” replied Bashir who then asked for Peterson’s input.
“All we’ve seen from Romney and from his surrogates is all kinds of politicizing and misdirection,” Peterson continued, “and I think the American people in this sort of disastrous moment can really see in bold relief the differences between President Obama and former Governor Romney.”
So having a storm relief event with tables “piled high with flashlights, batteries, diapers, toothbrushes, mini-deodorants, fleece blankets, cereal, toilet paper and canned goods” and two large television screens calling for donations to the Red Cross demonstrates a lack of compassion on MSNBC.
Yet the network didn’t end there.
About a half hour later, Bashir brought GQ’s Ana Marie Cox on to trash Romney’s event.
“I found that sort of fake, relief rally, whatever it is, to be pretty offensive, and also wrong-headed,” said Cox. She actually called Romney “craven” for doing it.
