With All Due Respect…

Now this is just plain pathetic—

From Yahoo!News:

…Romney’s event here had been scheduled to be a “victory rally.” But on Monday, his campaign announced he would cancel his political events on Tuesday out of respect for those affected by the storm.


KETTERING, Ohio — There was no Kid Rock playing on the loudspeakers, and the campaign signs were gone, replaced by a giant American flag. But Mitt Romney’s “storm relief event” held at a local athletic complex here still had some of the trappings of a regular campaign rally, from the biographical Romney video to the woman in the crowd who wore a shirt that read, “Obama, You’re Fired.”

It also featured the same celebrity guests, including Randy Owen, the lead singer of the country group Alabama, who performed after Romney spoke.

But the Republican nominee still tried to cast a nonpolitical tone, scrapping his usual stump speech in favor of remarks about those “suffering” and “hurting” in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy…

Pathetic, yes, but a bunch of people still showed up at it, didn't they?

Apparently, the Romney campaign went to Walmart and bought a lot of the "donations" so they would have enough for the photo op!

Americans working together, federal action across multiple affected states.... Sounds like a prime example of big government and socialism benefiting everyone to me.

Perhaps Romney would care to explain how his vision of federal cuts and small government would help with the disaster relief?.

He looks like the Brawny man from an alternate universe.
