In response to BetheKoolaid's comment:
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 didnâÂÂt make loony leftie Martin Bashir happy. Ditto his Obama-supporting guests.
âÂÂI 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,âÂÂ said Atlanta Mayor Reed.
âÂÂIndeed,âÂÂ replied Bashir who then asked for PetersonâÂÂs input.
âÂÂAll weâÂÂve seen from Romney and from his surrogates is all kinds of politicizing and misdirection,âÂÂ Peterson continued, âÂÂand 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.âÂÂ
So having a storm relief event with tables âÂÂpiled high with flashlights, batteries, diapers, toothbrushes, mini-deodorants, fleece blankets, cereal, toilet paper and canned goodsâÂÂ and two large television screens calling for donations to the Red Cross demonstrates a lack of compassion on MSNBC.
Yet the network didnâÂÂt end there.
About a half hour later, Bashir brought GQâÂÂs Ana Marie Cox on to trash RomneyâÂÂs event.
âÂÂI found that sort of fake, relief rally, whatever it is, to be pretty offensive, and also wrong-headed,âÂÂ said Cox. She actually called Romney âÂÂcravenâÂÂ for doing it.

Red cross said please don't do that.....from their web site
Unfortunately, due to logistical constraints the Red Cross does not accept or solicit individual donations or collections of items. Items such as collected food, used clothing and shoes must be sorted, cleaned, repackaged and transported which impedes the valuable resources of money, time, and personnel.
It âÂÂimpedesâÂÂ relief efforts, it doesnâÂÂt help. The Red Cross prefers money because itâÂÂs far easier to handle, and can be spent where itâÂÂs most needed and on what is most needed.
R-Money is only helping himself
