Lib Fools at MSNBS & Democrats Ridicule Romney for Collecting Food and Supplies for Hurricane Sandy Victims
Can MSNBC really be considered a news network anymore? So now Romney is considered evil for helping people?
The bias, in the tank for Barack Obama MSNBC bashed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for collecting food and supplies for Hurricane Sandy victims at an Ohio event. It was initially supposed to be a campaign event; however, due to the sever death, damage and destruction of Sandy, Romney changed the event as a way to help victims. That did not stop MSNBC in trashing and criticizing Romney.
Transcript from NewsBusters:
ANA MARIE COX: I found that sort of fake relief rally, whatever it is, to be pretty offensive and also wrong-headed. You know, the Red Cross is put in this awkward position of saying, you know, “We don’t need canned goods, thank you very much, Mr. 1950s. You know, like we need money, we need people to donate blood.” And I think that sort of is Mitt Romney sort of writ small as it were, right? Like to not only do something so craven, but to do it in a way that’s not even helpful on a small scale.
MARTIN BASHIR: So Ana Marie, was it purely a photo opportunity? Was it purely for the sake of having people walk past him, hand him cans, and be on television?
COX: Well, it almost has to be seeing as how the thing he was doing was not something that the Red Cross actually needed. And so it almost has to be purely for politics purely as a photo-op. I mean, that’s his entire campaign, purely a photo-op really.
BASHIR: Karen, you wanted to add something to that.
KAREN FINNEY: Well, I was just going to say, you know, Martin, the thing is like when you have a platform or an opportunity to communicate a message particularly in a time like this, I think it’s incumbent on you to make sure that you’re communicating what is the most effective, helpful thing. And as a former governor, I would think that he would know that what the Red Cross needs in times like this is money and blood. Of course, it is human nature to want to help your fellow American that’s in trouble and to think “Oh, I’ll buy food or I’ll buy clothes.” But again, as we’ve been doing here on MSNBC and I hope other networks are doing, sort of helping, being a part of helping direct people to websites where they can donate or find out exactly what’s needed. I mean, that really should be the role. If they wanted to do something helpful, that would actually be the thing they could have been doing that would be helpful.
Nice Deb has the Democrat/Obama/MSM meme that Romney committed gaffes by helping people. Really folks, is this how low you have sunk?
Democrats play politics as well with Hurricane Sandy as Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfernsaid, “Look, I’m a partisan. I’ll let others judge this. But I think someone of Gov. Romney’s wealth could have just written a check for $10 million to the American Red Cross.” Let’s face it, the bias MSM and Democrats would have found fault in anything that Romney did. As Redfern said above, he is partisan.
These people are just sick and show exactly what Obama’s “Hope and Change” has become.
Way to Stay Classy Democrats … Bill Clinton Politicizes Hurricane Sandy, Compares Romney Election to Hurricane Sandy
I guess when Obama and Democrats accuse Romney of murder, being compared to a deadly hurricane is par for the course.
It did not take long at all for Democrats to politicize Hurricane Sandy. Yesterday, former president Bill Clinton used the threat of the pending hurricane to compare to next week’s Presidential election.Comparing the election to a deadly hurricane, really Mr. Clinton? Way to keep in classy Slick Willy.
“We’re coming down to the 11th hour. We’re facing a violent storm,” Clinton said according to the Connecticut Mirror. “It’s nothing compared to the storm we’ll face if you don’t make the right decision in this election.”
Although, Clinton says that unless the “right” decision is made we are facing a storm worse than Hurricane Sandy. Maybe he is referring to Obama’s reelection as what could be worse?

Our prayers go out to those affected by the massive storm that engulfed the Mid-Atlantic, Ohio Valley, NY-NJ area and New England states.
It was a storm like that had never been seen before as Hurricane Sandy left death and destruction in her wake. At least 17 people so far have been confirmed dead; however, it is hard to believe that this number will not rise. Power is out across the east coast from the Carolina’s to Ohio to NY and NJ to New England. Levees are reported to have broke in northern New Jersey and flooded the town of Moonachie. Yesterday a 13 foot surge of seawater, 3 feet above the previous record, gushed into NYC, flooding tunnels, subway stations, homes and business. system t
A terrible fire ignited in Breezy Point, Queens in New York City that destroyed at least 50 homes.So far no casualties have been reported; however, due to power outages and darkness, communication is at a minimum.
The neighborhood, Breezy Point in the borough of Queens, had been extensively flooded by Sandy’s record storm surge, and firefighters were hampered in their efforts to bring the blaze under control, a spokesman for the New York Fire Department said.
No casualties were immediately reported and the cause of the fire was under investigation.

The Weather Channel: Superstorm Sandy: Status and Impact Maps
Numerous towns along the New Jersey shore, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Long Island, Connecticut, Rhode Island, flooded with Monday’s morning high tide. The Monday evening high tide brought historic storm surge flooding to the New York City metro area.
Monday night, all-time record tide levels were set at The Battery in Lower Manhattan, breaking a record from 1821, as well as Sandy Hook, N.J., shattering the previous record from the Dec. 1992 Nor’easter and Hurricane Donna in 1960.
It should be noted…another high tide Tuesday morning will feature additional coastal flooding, particularly along southern Long Island, New York Harbor, the Jersey shore, the Delmarva Peninsula, and southern New England, as southerly winds continue to keep water levels higher than normal. Current indications suggest the flooding will not be as severe as it was Monday night.

Sandy ready to unleash her fury …
The East Coast and North East braces for Hurricane Sandy. It is being called the storm of the century, the Perfect Storm, Part II. Some areas are going to get huge wave surges, some massive amounts of rain, other 100 mile an hours gusts of wind and other areas snow accumulations in the feet. Some 50 million people are supposed to be affected by Sandy and 10′s of thousands of people have been evacuated.
Tens of thousands of residents were ordered to evacuate coastal areas Sunday as big cities and small towns across the eastern U.S. buttoned up against the onslaught of a superstorm threatening some 50 million people in the most heavily populated corridor in the nation.
For all those in harms way, please be safe, our prayers are with you.
Satellite loop – if this does not look ominous, I am not sure what does
Winds of 25 to 45 mph with gusts of 65+ mph along the immediate coast will continue. A storm surge of 4 to 6 feet above ground level is expected in eastern North Carolina if peak surge occurs at high tide. Bands of heavy rain on the outer periphery of the circulation will continue to wrap into the eastern North Carolina. Hatteras, N.C., reported 5.29 inches of rain as of 5 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
Millions prepare for Hurricane Sandy – President declares state of emergency for New York and Massachusetts.
As Hurricane Sandy stayed on track to barrel the East Coast, states of emergency were declared from North Carolina to Connecticut, with residents being evacuated, schools and transit systems shut and food and supplies flying off store shelves in a sure sign people were preparing for the worst.
Sandy was at Category 1 strength, packing 75 mph winds, about 270 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., and moving northeast at 14 mph as of 2 p.m. Sunday, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. It was about 575 miles south of New York City.
The Hurricane is on path to meet a winter storm and a cold front, plus high tides from a full moon, and experts said the rare hybrid storm that results could cause havoc through 800 miles from the East Coast to the Great Lakes.

Barack Obama, Leading from Behind … Obama Changes Schedule to Visit Louisiana, Guilted into It By Romney’s Visit to Gulf Coast to Tour Hurricane Isaac Damage
AMERICA, WE HAVE A JOKE OF A PRESIDENT IN THE WHITE HOUSE … LEADING FROM BEHIND!
Sorry, Barack Obama is not a President, he is not a Commander in Chief, he is an empty suit, elected on the false promise of “Hope & Change” and would rather campaign and fund raise as opposed to doing his job. It has been said over and over that Barack Obama does not lead, he follows. Obama, the President of the United States leads from behind.During this weeks RNC Convention, former Secretary of State Condi Rice said in a tremendous speech, “we cannot lead from behind”. Guess who she was referring to?
And I know too that there is weariness – a sense that we have carried these burdens long enough. But if we are not inspired to lead again, one of two things will happen – no one will lead and that will foster chaos — or others who do not share our values will fill the vacuum. My fellow Americans, we do not have a choice. We cannot be reluctant to lead – and one cannot lead from behind.
Yesterday, we reported that following the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney, the GOP Presidential nominee, adjusted his campaign schedule and decided to tour Louisiana and the Hurricane Isaac storm damaged areas and meet with the affected people. Romney said, “I’m here to learn and obviously to draw some attention to what’s going on here”. Romney would do this along side Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. So it begs the question, where is Obama? Many on the LEFT whined and complained that the GOP should cancel their convention in Tampa, FL because of Hurricane Isaac. Instead, the GOP delayed the convention by an day and managed to push 4 days of activities into 3. What did Obama do? Well he continued to campaign as usual. The GOP convention was three years in the planning, Obama’s campaigning and fundraising, not so much. Barack Obama was business as usual and went to his campaign stops, but Obama Says He Discussed Hurricane Isaac by Phone—From Plane. That’s mighty big of you. This coming from the “Hypocrite in Chief who criticized GWB for not visiting fast enough the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina hit.
Some one needs to explain to me, better yet explain to the affected Hurricane Isaac individuals of the Gulf Coast, how in the hell the President of the United States did not visit the devastated areas of Louisiana before the GOP nominee? Mitt Romney changes his schedule to show his concern and visit with those who were affected by Isaac before Obama? Exactly which one is the President? We all know who should and will be President, but this is disgraceful.Talk about your Obama, leading from behind.
Hmm, Romney visits Gulf Coast areas affected by Hurricane Isaac … where is Barack Obama?
Mitt Romney, fresh off a successful Republican National Convention and officially receiving the GOP nomination for President, is off to New Orleans and Louisiana to tour areas affected by Hurricane Isaac. Romney will meet up with Governor Bobby Jindal, who did not attend the RNC convention so to take care of matters in Louisiana. Romney will be altering his campaign plans and not go to Virgina as previously planned following this mornings post-convention rally this morning in Lakeland, FL with his VP choice Paul Ryan. The GOP VP will go solo to Virginia later today.
Mitt Romney will head to the New Orleans area today to tour areas affected by Hurricane Isaac.
Romney and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will meet with first responders.
Rather amazing that Romney finds the time to take away from his campaign to visit the areas affected by Hurricane Isaac. Isn’t this President Obama’s job? Then again, who is the candidate that actually acts and conducts them self is a Presidential manner?

Tropical Storm ISAAC Public Advisory
Tropical Storm Isaac about to become a hurricane as it crosses the Florida Keys and enters the Gulf of Mexico. As reported at ABC News, Isaac is expected to make landfall somewhere along the Gulf Coast by Tuesday or Wednesday, on the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. However, Isaac does not appear to be as powerful as the devastating Katrina that reeked havoc on New Orleans, Louisiana and the Gulf Coast. Isaac has made the planner of the Republican National Convention cancel the first day of the event on Monday.
Tropical Storm Isaac barely stirred some Florida Keys residents from their fabled nonchalance Sunday, while the Gulf Coast braced for the possibility that the sprawling storm will strengthen into a dangerous hurricane by the time it makes landfall there.
Isaac was expected to cross the Keys by late afternoon, then turn northwest and strike as a Category 2 hurricane somewhere between the New Orleans area to the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
The storm was predicted to pass west of Tampa, the site of the Republican National Convention, but it had already disrupted the schedule there because of the likelihood of heavy rain and strong winds.
Even before reaching hurricane strength, Isaac caused considerable inconvenience, with hundreds of flights canceled at airports in Miami and Fort Lauderdale. There were scattered power outages from Key West to Fort Lauderdale affecting more than 6,000 customers, and flooding occurred in low-lying areas.
Florida Governor Scott Brown says that Florida is preparing for Isaac. The Florida Keys are going to be hot with tropical force wind and rain. Brown stated that he has canceled his plans to attend the Republican National Convention on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday to deal with issues for the state of Florida and the potential for Isaac to turn into a hurricane.

Death and Destruction in the Heartland After Tornodoes Rip through the Mid-West & South (Update: 31 Dead)
Tornadoes, twisters, hail and sever lighting and thunder storms ripped through the Mid-West and the South Friday leaving devastation and many dead it its wake. For those who witnessed the tornadoes and severe storms first hand, if you did not see the 80 to 90 tornadoes that touched down, you witnessed golf ball size hail that fell so fast that it accumulated like snow on the ground. To date, 14 people were killed in Indiana, 12 died in Kentucky and two people were killed in Ohio. The property damage spanned from the Midwest to the gulf coast. Out prayers go out to those affected by these terrible storms.
A swarm of tornadoes tore through the U.S. midsection on Friday, splintering homes, damaging a prison, overturning trucks and killing at least four people in the hard-hit state of Indiana, officials said.
At least one person died in the southern Indiana town of Henryville, where television images showed homes blown apart and vehicles including a school bus thrown into buildings. Three others died elsewhere in the state.
The town of Marysville, IN, population about 1,900, was “completely gone” and nearby Henryville also suffered extreme damage.
UPDATE I: 31 people confirmed dead after the severe weather … 31 victims, 15 were in Indiana, 12 in Kentucky, three in Ohio and one in Alabama.
The tornado outbreak, unusual for this time of year, killed at least 31 people. Saturday began with large swaths of the South still battered by heavy rain and under tornado watches — and a real fear of the death toll rising.
Of the 31 victims, 15 were in Indiana, 12 in Kentucky, three in Ohio and one in Alabama.
Piles of debris littered land where well-built homes once stood. Tall trees bowed to the winds and lay horizontal with the land. Churches turned into shelters and thousands of people began a weekend unnerved bynature’s fury.
