    Romney Campaign Staged Donations In Storm Relief Event

     

    Source: Think Progress

    As the East Coast and parts of Ohio struggled to regroup in the devastating wake of “Superstorm” Sandy, the Romney campaign hastily transformed a scheduled victory rally in Dayton, Ohio into a non-political “storm relief event” on Tuesday. According to BuzzFeed, the campaign encouraged supporters to bring hurricane relief supplies and “deliver the bags of canned goods, packages of diapers, and cases of water bottles to the candidate, who would be perched behind a table along with a slew of volunteers and his Ohio right-hand man, Senator Rob Portman.”

    Just to be safe, campaign aides reportedly spent $5,000 to a local Wal-Mart on supplies that could be put on display. When supporters arrived at the rally-turned-relief event, they were treated to the 10-minute video about Romney’s life, which was first unveiled at the RNC. The event ended with supporters lined up to hand over supplies and meet Romney. But according to BuzzFeed, this donation process was also staged:

    Empty-handed supporters pled for entrance, with one woman asking, “What if we dropped off our donations up front?”

    The volunteer gestured toward a pile of groceries conveniently stacked near the candidate. “Just grab something,” he said.

    The only supplies I would need if I was to visit Mitt Romney are a custard pie ( think 3 Stooges) and rotten tomatoes.

    Do you think they had a stack of them within striking distance?

    I can dream, can't I?

    Shooting the messenger...

    ...versus asking why their candidate Mr. Romney is such a shameless, artificial tool.

    The man is so plastic, the tupperware people use him as a model for their products.

    It is the default defense of the wingnut... attack the source, the fact that the story is real is secondary to their self imposed persecution complex.  These are the people who think asking Sarah Palin to name a newspaper is "gotcha journalism".

    The best part of this story is everyone, or I guess almost everyone, knows that the Red Cross doesn't want can foods.  They want money.  This display of phony, contrived compassion is consistent for the wildly out of touch Romney campaign.

    Apparently so. 

    I seem to remember Bush NOT going to New Orleans becasue he didn't want to divert the efforts on the ground wiht his presence.  Obama might have thought to do the same.  

     

    But, he just had to swagga.
