Romney Campaign Bus Being Used For Hurricane Relief Efforts

In a true example of leadership, Mitt Romney has sent his campaign bus to aid in hurricane relief as Hurricane Sandy prepares to slam into the northeast as early as tonight. Donations were being accepted today at the Romney campaign Virginia headquarters. Ann Romney was scheduled to appear in New Hampshire tomorrow, but has canceled plans so resources can be spent helping people affected by the storm.

    He’ll probably be slammed for “politicizing” the hurricane, but this is the proof of the kind of man and the kind of a leader he will be.
    I would imagine that he is doing more, quietly, behind the headlines, too.
    Bravo, Governor Romney!

    There’s an unconfirmed report that Sean Penn was polling his flat boat around the Financial District this morning. He never did fix that leak (in his head or his boat).

    I wouldn’t try too hard to “relieve” Brooklyn. The gangs are in charge there now and they’ll just “relieve” you . . . of your bus and likely your life.

    Mormons know how to do this. They can criticize him, but “they” will look stupid for doing so. However, if he was doing it to proselytize then that would be a different story. I don’t believe this is the case.

    I saw a video title on YT posted less than a day ago “praying” that Romney voters would drown. If they’re not praying to God, to whom are they praying? Who says some forms of atheism and Leftism aren’t religion?

    Just watch. O’Bummer will copycat Mitt first chance he gets.

    Where are Fur, Pinko and Irony? I hope the Mittmobile brings them supplies! (I doubt they are collecting donations of alcohol, though…)

    While diverting campaign resources to help people facing a crisis, Romney spoke about how we help others and (not an exact quote) “There will be a lot of people who will need more than what we are able to provide right now but I learned growing up that you help in ways that you can.”

    What is wonderful about his statement is that, knowing Romney’s personal history of having done just that throughout his life, he speaks from experience of meeting the real, practical needs of people who are hurting and not just mouthing the prosaic words of a politician seeking to garner votes by “appearing presidential.” I’ll go a step further and say that Romney is the kind of man who will make us all want to be better people; not because of an executive order or the rantings of an appointed czar, but because of his example.

    MSNBC’s liar, Martin Bashir, and his panel of liars were lying today that, at the height of the storm yesterday and again in its aftermath today, Romney was out asking for donations to his campaign, alleging that that was in bad taste, considering the circumstances.

    The facts: Romney and his campaign workers were collecting donation for people harmed or displaced by the storm, asking people to send donations to the Red Cross, too, and, in fact, he had suspended his campaign, unlike Obama, who is exploiting the situation to try, four years too late, to look presidential.

    Obama and his supporters are a pack of liars, who can’t win fairly, and so they lie, cheat and steal. MSNBC has become a sick joke.

    When I was a little kid, one of my most exciting adventures was when, unbeknownst to our parents, one of my teenage cousins and two of his friends took me and my little brother to the beach to watch a hurrican come ashore. We were too awed to be frightened.

    What was awesome, too, was that, in the inlet nearby, the waves coming into the inlet and the river flowing into the ocean caused a huge, churning whirlpool that spanned the width of the inlet.

    Wouldn’t you just know it, too, there were three teenage boys in a motorboat who kept playing chicken with that whirlpool, approaching it and then pulling away from it repeatedly until a Coast Guard helicopter came along and told them (to the cheers of the relieved crowd of gathering onlookers) to get their asses back on shore.

    Obaloney’s black campaign bus could probably serve as a hearse. Not making fun of the situation, Obaloney’s bus is creepy. Let’s all blame Obama for this monster storm, Sandy, like liberals blamed Bush for Katrina-sarcasm.

    MSNBC disses Romney for collecting food and supplies for hurricane victims–AND directing $$ donations to the Red Cross:
