How Mitt Faked His Food Drive — PLEASE SHARE

Apparently, nothing is sacrosanct for Mitt Romney and his manic drive for glory.  News now comes that the Kettering, Ohio, food drive was a stealth campaign event complete with celebrity appearances, campaign videos, fake photo ops, and “touching” moments of fake piety.

Also see the Los Angeles Times article on the food drive.

PLEASE VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6 AND TELL MITT WHAT YOU THINK OF HIS FAKE FOOD DRIVE AND CRASS USE OF THE VICTIMS OF HURRICANE SANDY FOR HIS OWN POLITICAL GAIN!

What Mitt Really Thinks! Disaster Relief Is Like Picking Up Trash. — PLEASE SHARE

This is incredible.  Even as he is “helping” the 47 percent, he can’t help but disparage them by comparing the disaster relief effort to picking up trash.

Mr. Romney, surveying the piles of donated goods, recalled a time he was in high school when classmates discovered a football field littered with trash.

“And the person who responsible for organizing the effort said, just line up along the yardlines. You go between the goal line and the 10 yard line. And the next person, between 10 and 20, and then just walk through and do your lane. And if everybody cleans their line, why, we’ll be able to get the job done. And so today, we are cleaning one lane, if you will,” he said.

As we have learned since this post ran, it makes sense that Mitt Romney would say something like this: The entire “disaster relief event” was a piece of trash that was faked to give Mitt a crass photo op.

PLEASE VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6 AND LET MITT KNOW THAT HELPING OTHERS IS NOT THE SAME AS PICKING UP TRASH.

Mitt’s Soup Kitchen Moment — PLEASE SHARE

In anticipation of the impending tragedy of massive hurricane Sandy, Barack Obama suspended his campaign and  hastened back to the Situation Room in the White House where he could make sure that the resources of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other national resources would be mustered to respond to the storm.

The Situation Room is the place where he can be in contact with anyone, anywhere immediately.

His sense of urgency and immediacy has garnered praise from the most unlikely of places

Mitt Romney has also been busy.  He suspended his scheduled campaign rally in Ohio and then decided that he should change it into a disaster relief photo opportunity with all of the previously scheduled big names.  I mean why waste a perfectly good photo opportunity, eh?

At this rally, he asked for donations of canned goods and used clothing for the poor disaster victims to be gathered and distributed by the American Red Cross.  Good idea, but:

The American Red Cross can’t use canned goods or used clothing as they state on their website.  In fact such donations actually hinder their work and divert critically needed manpower and monetary resources from critical task:

“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’s sort of like washing previously cleaned pots and pans.  Actually it is worse than washing previously cleanded pots and pans.  It is like taking the clean pots and pans and throwing them in the mud so that the soup kitchen would have to wash them again.

VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6 AND TELL MITT THAT CRASS PHOTO OPS ARE NOT WHAT WE WANT IN A PRESIDENT.  PLEASE HELP GET OUT THE VOTE.

BULLETIN — Ohio Must Allow Early Voting By All


The United States Supreme Court in a one sentence order denied the State of Ohio’s request for a stay of a court decision that would force the state to provide early voting on Saturday, Sunday and Monday for all voters.  Ohio had previously ruled that only military personnel could vote early.

Although the petition was received by Justice Kagan, it is a decision by the entire Supreme Court.  The coincidence of Kagan being the one to receive the original petition is just happenstance.  All the Justices rotate the duty of receiving petitions presented to the Court.  Justice Kagan is the designated Justice to receive emergency petitions for the Sixth Circuit in which Ohio resides.

The Supreme Court did not make a decision on the merits of this case, which can still be argued before the court should Ohio pursue the matter, but this denial of Ohio’s request opens the polls this election cycle for all persons eligible to vote on those days, not just members of the military.

The order refusing to grant an injunction against lower court orders to open up the polls is viewed as a strategic win for the Obama campaign as any further challenges by the State of Ohio will likely not be heard until after November 6, 2012.

Thus another attempt to deny citizens their voting privileges by Republicans has failed.

Vote Early If You Can!  Get others to vote early if they can.
