REMINDER: Mitt Romney Called Federal Disaster Relief ‘Immoral’

Hurricane Sandy now threatens the eastern seaboard of the United States. You can follow the storm here. As the storm disrupts the final days of the presidential election, it’s important to think about the candidates’ positions on disaster relief.

During the GOP primary, as the candidates pitted themselves against each other in a contest to see who could call for more austerity, Mitt Romney used a question about whether more FEMA fund should be allocated without spending cuts to call the money the federal government spends on disaster relief “immoral”:

We cannot — we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. It is simply immoral, in my view, for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we’ll all be dead and gone before it’s paid off. It makes no sense at all.

Of course the amount of money we spend on disaster relief — approximately $46 billion is allocated for 2013 — is a fraction of the estimated $294 billion Mitt’s latest proposed tax cuts would cost.

 

During the Republican National Convention, as Hurricane Isaac forced the GOP to cancel the first day of its festivities, Mother JonesTim Murphy looked at how Romney’s proposals and his running mate Paul Ryan’s budget would affect disaster relief and found that “…under a Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan administration, FEMA’s ability to respond quickly and effectively to natural disasters could be severely inhibited.”

But at least disaster victims would have the relief of knowing that the rich have more tax breaks to keep them warm.

5 Ways Republicans Could Still Lose The House

This should be the Republicans’ year. Democrats need to defend 20 U.S. Senate seats, seven of which are in states Mitt Romney won, even as he lost to President Obama by nearly 5 million votes. The GOP only needs to win six of those seats to take control of the upper house of Congress. In 2012,

Rand Paul Can Try To Be His Party’s Bill Clinton, But He’ll Never Be President

This post originally appeared at Eclectablog.com. Rand Paul continues to fling any turd he can find at the Clintons for pretty obvious reasons. The first-term senator from Kentucky has to do something to show the GOP establishment he can be competitive in a general election, and he’s trying to keep the former president out of

5 Reasons It’s Time For The GOP To Dump Sarah Palin And The Tea Party

Conservative columnist Matt Lewis seems relieved. “We may have finally reached a tipping point: Conservatives, it seems, are finally safe to criticize Sarah Palin (without fear of being written out of the movement, that is),” he wrote on Tuesday. A flurry of criticism from the right has swarmed around the one-time Republican nominee for vice

    Are we sure Willard isn’t a secret Randian? It seems his generosity shows itself only when it can be displayed to his benefit; otherwise he and Ayn seem in lockstep.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BFGF5RNRAJ5ZGJWR52Q4LRJ6YY Matthew

      Mitt Romney isn’t a secret anything. He appears to have no concrete belief about anything other than that he deserves to be president, that it’s his destiny. Seriously, look at the man, he’s even gladly sell out his beliefs on lower taxes on the wealthy, if it’d get him even one vote closer to his entitled White house – and that’s about as solid a position as the man has ever taken.

      • neece00

        Not that he would make a good President and that he really thinks he could do something good for the country, but just destiny.

        • THS_Warrior

          Destiny who? I once knew a girl named Destiny; she loved money and power too. She works for a zoo in Pittsburgh sweeping out the monkey cages now.

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KOPKDFAUQPIIRAFI3HEXNMSHLQ Ed

          Actually, until just recently Romney has acted as if we should be grateful he was willing to be running for president. Came as a shock to him when he realised he had to work for it. But the Freat Mittster was up to the challenge of being everything to all people.

      • latebloomingrandma

        Yes–Ann says it’s their turn, and by golly, they are doing all they can to buy that office.

        • neece00

          and the funny part of that comment is that Ann, did not want him to run and in facts, the sons did not want him to run.

          • THS_Warrior

            Well I guess not: Would you want a loser for a spouse or father?

          • neece00

            I think you are right, it may be the reason they did not want him to run is they thought he would lose. He will lose and then she will still be married to a loser.

          • old_blu

            Good morning neece! Even if he wins (God forbid) she will still be married to a loser.

          • THS_Warrior

            Hahahahahahahahahaha!!! Poster old_blu is 100% correct!! However, if Rmoney does get elected president that will also mean the American sheepole elected yet another Republican loser to the office. Perhaps “we have met the enemy and it is”….. the sheepole?

          • BDC_57

            good moring blu, he will always be a loser he lies to much.

          • old_blu

            Exactly BDC and good afternoon to you my friend.

          • BDC_57

            good morning neeceoo

        • THS_Warrior

          This plan is right out of the old Guard’s original GOP playbook. A famous former Democrat former union president named Ronald Reagan upset the GOP chronology of succession by defeating George H.W. Bush in the 1980 primaries. So the GOP smoothed it all over by promising the VP slot to Bush I, who waited patiently for his shot in 1988. He got it and won fair and square.

          The first Bush presidency was supposed to last eight years, but Bill Clinton came along and cut poppy short in 1992, thereby putting the GOP back out to pasteur for eight long years. By then the old guard GOP was history because all the experienced Repubs were too old.

          Meantime both Jeb Bush and George W Bush went out and bought goverorships in large states so they could claim executive leadership. (Mitt Rmoney copied them.)

          So the new order of GOP succession became George W. Bush for eight years, followed by Jeb Bush for another eight years, followed by some younger Bush boy for another eight years, etc, etc., apparently to go on forever.

          George W. Bush was very rude to Senator John McCain during the 2000 promaries so the old guard GOP promised McCain that he could be next, if he got passed the primaries. Senator John McCain ran roughshod over Mitt Rmoney in the 2008 Republicans primaries so the GOP promished Mitt Rmoney that he would be next.

          Mitt Rmoney apparently got ants in his pants because he is wasting his one shot on a sittiing president who will be re-elected. When Mitt tries again in 2016 he will not be welcome in the GOP because he will be labled a loser like McCain is; and so the GOP will look to Jeb Bush.

          • neece00

            You have this down to a science.

          • THS_Warrior

            You did not ask me to, but I will tell you one of my secrets anyway:
            Whenever I get confused and wonder how things turned out the way they did I always sit down with all the evidence and and write down every single thing that happend along the entire way, in exact chronological order. If you include enough happenstances in the long line of chronological events and then step back and think about all of with a clear mined, you will start to see some obvious answers right before your eyes.

            The reason this works so well is simple: On planet earth everything that happens ALWAYS happens for a reason; therefore, since everything also always happens chronologically, the reasons that all things happened are contained somewhere in the chronological list of events leading up to the event in question.

        • hilandar1000

          I guess the taking-turns philosophy is how they justify BUYING the presidency. Aren’t we silly to think our votes actually count, when it’s all just a matter of taking turns.

    Hey but he was there getting his photo shoot.. What a guy. Romney is a draft dodger and Communist, has closed more companies in American then he could ever create and given that technology to China to have it produced, but over 200,000 FEMALE SLAVE LABORER AGES 14-24 . And for over three years he did nothing to get those girls better conditions.. What a guy. You see while most of us were enlisting in the service, Romney was PROTESTING…FOR THE VIETNAM WAR…and he had four deferments by using his church as the reason. When he found out he would not get another one like all of the Romneys before him when there was trouble..he ran away from the draft..now he says, My five sons will not be entering the military as they are serving our Country by working on my campaign. First off I don’t feel Romney should be able to say it’s OUR COUNTRY SINCE HE HAS DONE SO MUCH TO DESTROY IT.
    Further more, if all true Americans had the same values, morals and patriot feelings for our Country, as the Romney family has……….
    WE WOULD NOT BE THE LAND OF THE FREE..
    WE WOULD NOT BE THE HOME OF THE BRAVE
    Please take the time to find out more about this person who has no plan and loves to lie.

      what is willard hiding in his tax returns?

      mccain knows.

      • THS_Warrior

        There are a bunch of investigators and tax attorneys at Internal Revenue Service also know why Mitt Rmoney does not want Americans to see his official tax returns.

          3 years ago I applied for a construction loan to build a home. The bank required that I produce three years income tax returns. Two years ago I brought my girlfriend from the Philippines to America on a fiancee visa. The State Department required that I produce three years income tax returns to prove that she would not become a “public charge.” Now Mitt Romney wants to apply for the position of President of the United States, but refuses to produce more than two years income tax returns? He has no right to be preside over citizens that have to produce more income tax returns than he just to have a home and a wife.

          • THS_Warrior

            Great story, great comparison, great poke in the eye of the Morman from Hades.

          • onedonewong

            H produced his birth certificate something the Kenyan has yet to do

          • Soapm

            Why didn’t we ask any of the white presidents for their BC? I just wonder if you racist ever see the hypocrisy in your repeated attacks toward Obama’s citizenship.

          • onedonewong

            Its a requirement to run for President its only 1 of 2 requirements so every president since Washington always showed their BC. It only became an issue when Barak refused to show his. John McCain showed his even though he was born in the Panama Canal Naval base.
            The fact that he refused even though there was ample evidence that he was born in Keyna, shows nothing but contempt for the US constitution

          • THS_Warrior

            You are one done wrong. Everyone knows that Governor George Romoney was born in Mexico. The Republicans who nominated Gorgeous George obviously thought that being a Mexican was just fine– as long as you are a card-carrying Republican Mexican.

          • onedonewong

            Sorry that was his DAD… and Romney has said that numerous times in the past. What hasn’t happened is Barak confirming that he was born in Keyna and qualified for student loans as “foreign student”

          • THS_Warrior

            Yes I and millions of other real Americans am aware that Mitt Romoney’s thin claim to being a “natural born American” and thus (unlike his father) qualified to run for president is because his Mexican father and mother moved to America before Mitt was born here in America.

            That is exactly what millions of other (poor) Mexicans have been doing for at least half a century: moving here to America so their children will be “natural born Americans” just like Mitt Romoney claims to be.

            So tell me: why does Mitt Romoney now want to deport all of his Mexican brothers and sisters? Because they are not wealthy? How rude of him.

          • onedonewong

            Not thin Romney supplied a BC without being asked. He understands the constitution and complies with all US laws.
            There is a difference in that Romney’s parents PAID for their medical coverage and the birth of their children. While poor Mexicans dump that burden on the taxpayers not the 47% who don’t pay taxes.
            He wants to deport Alllll Illegals, why?? because he believes and enforces US laws unlike Barak who thinks the constitution is just a dam piece of paper and that laws don’t apply to him. He’s immune since he’s the messiah

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/IIAFAK62EMBFOLOX76RKHIW7TA Gilbert

            Why do you talk like an ignorant fool??? Anyone born of an American mother is an American. That is the Law of the Land. President Obama’s mother is a white woman from Kansas. When you argue otherwise you reveal yourself to be the racist, ignorant, inbred piece of trash that you are.

          • onedonewong

            That requirement only applies to being a Jew not a US citizen. I get a kick out a colored guy trying to appear intelligent

          • THS_Warrior

            So–What other minorities do you hate besides Jews and blacks? Mormans?

          • onedonewong

            You made a specious argument about citizenship and I simply showed you that the only time the mother determines anything is whether your a Jew or not. Obviously you have NO understanding of their faith.
            As for blacks wanting to appear intelligent I refer you to barak Eric holder, Al Sharpton, and jesse jackson enough said

          • THS_Warrior

            There are hundreds of thousands of “blacks” living with 500 miles of where you live who are much more intelligent than you ever will be poster onedonewrong.

            Your raycist brain has you trapped in a timewarp that will prevent you from living a happy life on this planet. Bigots and other ignorant humans who resist the flow of nature are inable to move forward because their locked human brains cannot connect with the collective human mind moving humanity forward and upward.

          • onedonewong

            Sorry I have never seen one or met one although I’m sure there might be 1 or 2 in the US but that would be the extreme.
            My racist brain?? Less you forget Africa was only 1 of 2 continents that didn’t independently discover the wheel. Its a reflection on their lack of intellect. Slavery was the 1st time that Africans were taught a trade and received book learning which elevated their status compared to those left behind Its a start but you can’t close their lack of intelligence in 2 -3 generations. Heck there are still cannibals living in Africa did you forget Ida Admen??It will be another 100-200 years before they are on par with normal people

          • THS_Warrior

            If I have learned anything during my 70 years on planet earth it is that we humans always get back whatever we dish out. The Holy Bible puts it like this: “As you sow, so shall you reap.” Hateful selfish humans always receive their rewards down here on planet earth.

            Humans who go though their earthly lives loving all other humans and doing the right thing are the most contented humans on earth regardless of their particular physical situation. If you are ever fortunate enough to get to meet her some day in the hereafter, just ask Mother Teresa to explain what I mean.

          • THS_Warrior

            The answer to your question is revealed in the quetion itself: because poster onedonewrong IS an ignorant fool. Every thoughtful American is aware that Mitt Romoney’s great-grandfather relocated his entire family (including seven known wives) to Mexico because polygamy was outlawed in all American states. Mitt Romoney’s grandfather and his father were Mexicans because both of them were born in Mexico.

            Exactly how the Mexican Romoney family acquired the family’s enormous wealth is anyone’s guess because Mitt Romoney refuses to talk about it and has yet to write a book about his soft life of leisure.

            But you can bet your bottom peso that the LDS church knows everythinh we would like to know about Mitt Romoney because the LDS church has compiled extensive ancestrial dossiers on hundreds of thousands of Mormans. The LDS church has been compiling historical details about everyone, apparently in anticipation of and in preparation for some planned heavenly litigation that they think they will need to get all the scatterd Mormans together again and past the pearly gates.

            Why? Because the Mormans actually believe that polygamy is permitted if not required in the afterlife. You think I am kidding? Just ask any one of them.

      • onedonewong

        The only thing he is hiding is his huge donatins to charity… his OWN $$$. You won’t see Barak or Joe Biteme making any

        • Gammaanya

          He will get almost all of it back, and he knows it. You probably missed the comment from Ann when she said they cried when they wrote the check and your buddy robmeofmoney said I cried for a different reason. He had to part with 20% of his fortune. I thought that Mormons think they are Gods and God doesn’t need money. Romney is a kind man like you are the King of Spain. U R grasping at straws, but good news for you R/R will win, the rich bought the good old USA. Obama will survive just fine with a lifetime pension of your tax money (so you will support him like it or not -LOL- will you survive R/R????? NOT. Congrats on your WIN.

          • onedonewong

            I cry as well when I have to write my check to the US treasury, knowing full well that 80% will be wasted. You only needed to listen to those who talked about Romney during the convention. Integrity is what you do when o one is watching.
            When it comes to your messiah even when people watch he is still lacks any morals

            Hmmm he released his 2011 and 2010 tax returns that the left wingnuts demanded and even you can look at them. Notice the State run Media hasn’t published them since he puts Barak, Biteme, Clinton and Gore to shame. He donates more in 1 year then they have combined over the past 10 years

        • nobsartist

          Prove it.

          • icanliejoe

            Just look at barak’s and biteme’s tax returns. Old Joe donated less than $1000 last year and even less in the preceeding years. Barak’s onlt charitable donation was the Nobel peace prize that some one gave him for showing up to work…1st time he ever had. Romney on the other hand has consistently donated 1/3 of his earnings to charity

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/IIAFAK62EMBFOLOX76RKHIW7TA Gilbert

          You need to read-up on the tax laws as they relate to charitable donations. It is obvious you don’t know the tricks. You’ve been hood-winked!

          • onedonewong

            There is no cap on charitable contributions or deductions. If you have ever paid taxes you would know that One day that may happen but you would first have to return your free obamaiphone

          • THS_Warrior

            Thanks to Morman Mitt Romoney there probably will soon be a cap on donations to churches; especially those like the LDS that exist soley to accumulate wealth and build temples that rival the Vatican in Rome.

          • onedonewong

            As opposed to jerime wrights?? or to the state dpt funding Mosques in the middle east with taxpayer $$. You left out all the temples that taxpayers $$ have been spent on for ACORN, Solandra, Telsar, Peace Institute

          • THS_Warrior

            Yes, you are on to us.

        I’ve said that for months to people. That (fortunately) is why our country is great. It’s privlaged info. Why do you think McCain passed him by!

    • onedonewong

      and Barak is what??/ some one who never registered with selective service…, a card carrying socialist and has sent more jobs to China than all the previous presidents combined.
      As for save labor in China better check with Apple who employs them

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/D7B3UYVAFBJAADWJGY3GOEOEPI joseph

        It would help if you could give us a list of all the jobs our president has shipped to China. You must be out of your ghord, because during Obama age bracket, there was no selective service because the military was filled with volunteers. It was a volunteers military un unlike robmoney’s time frame. I’m sorry to wreck your lies but you don’t know what you’re talking about.

        • onedonewong

          Ahhh Joey the selective service exists even today and all males from 18-26 have to register, of course for the draft dodgers of this country like yourself obeying the laws of this country aren’t something that applies to you.
          As for the jobs shipped to China I’ll give you one the $750Billion bridge built in the bay was designed, steel produced there and then assembled by their workers in CA, a simple google search would provide you many many more

      • http://www.facebook.com/maggie.croft.92 Maggie Croft

        onedone, you are probably the dumbest person I have ever read anything that was written by. Obama was twelve-years-old when the draft ended and you, of course, ran right out and enlisted for Iraq. I remember another rant where you let your racism slip so go away.

        • onedonewong

          Maggie your the poster child for the ignorant left. Males are still required to register with selective service even today. Its a shame that folks like you post nonsense rather and so intellectually lazy not to care. Guess the apples don’t fall far from the messiah tree

          • Yappy2

            Did you register? If you did , prove it to the world.

          • onedonewong

            absolutely I did. That’s because unlike barak I obey the laws of this country something you and he think they don’t apply to them

          • grammyjill

            Did you read the paperwork? If you don’t register you can’t get your tax returns until you do. Can’t get student loans either. Since the President went to school on loans, I think you are wrong on this one too.

          • onedonewong

            Barak never had a job until he was 35, and even though the law says that you have to be registered for the draft to receive a student loan or pell grant, it didn’t bother him. He just lied on his application until he decided to run for office

            Ok. Fact-Romney lied about Jeep going to Chin. Fact- Romney lied about Obama tking work out of welfare. Fact-Obama has done a very good job without ANY help from th treasonious GOP. Fact- Romney, IF elected will be a puppet for the koch brothers. Fact- IfRomney gets elected, this country will be in a severe depression wthin eighteen months.

            You are he who knows not and knows not he knows not. You poor uneducated sap. You and 130 made comments that I remember:

            One of you said Obama spoke in Ebonics and one of you said you were angry about them coming to get your guns and POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.

            Name one president who has actually tried to take anyone’s guns away. Do it with reliable facts and without lying.

            Political correctness is not a law. You don’t have to hide your racism. Both of those statements gave away racism.

            I have no political party. I don’t believe in political parties they divide the nation and a house divided against itself cannot stand.

      Don’t forget to thank Obama for lowering those gas prices. $3.399 yesterday. What a great president! Or was it Romney that did it. I forget.

      • THS_Warrior

        I have been waiting with baited breath for the neocons to give President Obama some credit for lowering the price of gas in America as well as he has done in the jast month. Seems like those who blamed Obama for the HIGH price of gas two months ago would have the decency to acknowledge that by election day President Obama will have gasoline prices down below $3 per gallon.

        They will probably say “Yeh, but gasoline was a lot lower during the depression that George W. Bush caused. We Republicans want America to go back into the Great Recession again so we can elect Mitt Rmoney to fix it faster than Obama did.”

        Ever heard of supply and demand? As demand goes up, supply gets more expensive. Ever notice those omes with 5 cars parked on the lawn/ or the cars on the interstes driving 40 minutes to work? We cannot subsidise the oil companies enough to bring the cost of fuel down. Certainly the repubs woulddo nothing to interfere with the oil cartels profits. THE PRESIDENT CANNOT REVERSE THE TREND OF 60 YEARS OF MOVEMENT TO THE SUBURBS, WHERE EVERTHING REQUIRES AN AUTOMOBILE FOR EVERYDAY LIFE.

    There is something particularly brazen about a man who made his money by loading debt onto companies, stripping them of their assets, taking 20% fees off the top, the selling off the companies – or as Romney put it “harvesting” them – for a profit. The reason so many of these companies went belly up is the amount of debt Romney saddled them with. Not to mention all the help he got from the Fed and local governments in tax breaks and even direct subsidies. (Google Romney, Bain and Gaffney, SC.)

    Rep. Eric Cantor did the same thing when hurricane Irene struck and relief funds were needed to repair damages in various parts of the country. In that instance, Cantor demanded legislative concessions in exchange for the GOP approving funds to help Americans in distress. These people are scumbags whose sense of patriotism starts and ends with the Almighty dollar and the advancement of their radical right wing agenda.

    Mitt Romney used a question about whether more FEMA fund should be allocated without spending cuts to call the money the federal government spends on disaster relief “immoral”:

    We cannot — we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. It is simply immoral, in my view, for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we’ll all be dead and gone before it’s paid off. It makes no sense at all.
    ///and how the anti-christ romney thinks it that maybe the kids will get killid in the disaster,s ? then he has money money to give back to his greedy bastard 2% rich freinds in tax breaks see the anti-christ romney is always thinking

  • anyasnote

    R/R will WIN, too much money is involved and the super rich, Rove, Adelson and others DO NOT LIKE TO LOOOOSE. They need to GET THEIR ROI and more and TAX FREE..
    Most Americans too stupid and lazy to know the difference between the 2 people. Romney will create 12M jobs in China not in US. He will be very busy on the FIRST DAY. Repeal Obamacare, kill the big bird,(Thanksgiving coming up) take away your tax deductions and stick it to you some more because Corp. are people and they don’t pay taxes.
    Some of you be happy with exactly $6750.00 medical voucher and if you are 55 or younger be ready to deposit you SS to Wall Street wizards, they will either make you rich (hahaha) or gone KAPUT. R/R do not believe in bailouts so they will not bail out your money but will pocket some more.
    He speak of his Governorship as if he performed miracles – HE DID NOT. ONE TERM – he didn’t even run for 2nd term because he knew he screwed up BIG TIME.Even his healthcare needed to be tweaked a little.
    Some people are so biased that they tend to agree with almost all or all positions/views taken by their own party and will never admit that they are wrong. If R/R will say that earth is flat they will stand by it, even if the whole world know is square .(LOL)
    As for gas prices President have no control over gas prices – it’s commodity and supply and demand. Just like jobs creation – if there is demand for certain products then jobs will be created to meet the demand.
    Romney is hiding his taxes because most of his money comes from Investments in China on slave wages. That’s what is waiting for you here. Minimum wage will be even lower – he said so himself – it’s not a good time to raise minimum wage (Ron Paul was of the same opinion).
    Sandy the hurricane is Obama’s fault. He did the storm dance.

    … So, I guess what the Traitor is saying is the reckless spending of the Bush admin. and the HUGE deficit passed on to Obama should be – PAID by the middle class NOW. We are RESPONSIBLE for past devastating decisions, OUR entitlements should be penalized, OUR life and limb and home dipatched to PAY for the GOP/Plutocrats buyout of OUR country. I don’t really think Mitt the Traitor was thinking about the middle class children when he signed a PLEDGE to the LOBBYISTS ! I think it’s VERY important people know that was his FIRST priority. We the PEOPLE, the ones that will have to watch him and his cohorts kill OUR Democracy, come in SECOND. Yes, SECOND he signed the PLEDGE to the 1%ers FIRST – If elected he will take an OATH to US, the Nation and Constitution – SECOND. In the immortal words of the great Dale Earnhardt – “SECOND is just the FIRST LOSER.
