MSNBC mocks Romney....for gathering food for victims of Sandy.
MSNBC's Martin Bashir and Atlanta's Mayor Kassim Reed mocked Governor Mitt Romney for having a Storm Relief event
in Ohio. Apparently these two didn't like Romney acting like a Presidential Candidate during a Presidential Campaign season.
Imagine sending food, flashlights and such... I mean the unmitigated gall of the guy. Yet President Obama was at the Red Cross
speaking about helping.. I guess they didn't mean help outside of Government.
“I think that this is just another moment where you see the clear striking difference between a president who has a heart for the American people and someone who simply wants to be president of the United States,” said Mayor Reed.
“Indeed,” replied Bashir who then asked for Peterson’s input.
“I would agree,” echoed Peterson. “It’s compassion that shows through in times like these. It’s humanity that shows through in times like these, and it just seems clear that the President, in addition to stepping up and doing what he does as Commander-in-Chief, demonstrates compassion in these remarks and in his approach to this kind of serious disaster.”
“All we’ve seen from Romney and from his surrogates is all kinds of politicizing and misdirection,” Peterson continued, “and I think the American people in this sort of disastrous moment can really see in bold relief the differences between President Obama and former Governor Romney.”
"So having a storm relief event with tables “piled high with flashlights, batteries, diapers, toothbrushes, mini-deodorants, fleece blankets, cereal, toilet paper and canned goods” along with two large television screens calling for donations to the Red Cross demonstrates a lack of compassion on MSNBC."
