Oh, Look! Mitt Romney Flip Flops On FEMA

Filed in National by on November 1, 2012

The only thing I know about Mitt Romney is that he lies at a rate I’ve never before seen.  I also know that anyone who claims to know what Mitt Romney will do as President is either lying or delusional.

Here is what Mitt said during the Republican primary:

“Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction,” Romney said at a debate last June. “And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better.”

Asked by moderator John King of CNN whether that would include disaster relief, Romney said: “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.”

Got that?  Helping people through disaster relief is immoral.

Then… after refusing to answer question after question (11 times he ignored the FEMA question) about this statement yesterday, Romney releases this statement:

“I believe that FEMA plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters,” Romney said in a statement supplied by his campaign Wednesday. “As president, I will ensure FEMA has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission, while directing maximum resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need, because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individuals and communities affected by natural disasters.”

Typical Mitt “Say Anything” Romney.  This man believes in nothing other than becoming President.  Check out his comments on Hurricane Sandy and how he pivots from people suffering back to his campaign.

“We come together at times like these. Now people coming together is what’s also going to happen on Nov. 7.”  Mitt Romney

Does he realize that comparing people coming together to help save lives and help people in crisis isn’t comparable to his winning an election?  I don’t think so.

    I think the disaster that would be his presidency is roughly comparable to a hurricane. lots of poor and sick people will die, people’s not-so-great situations will get worse, national infrastructure will fall apart…………. could be the first true thing he has ever said in his entire life.

    Maybe he’s telling his followers to accept Obama after a well deserved defeat. He knows he’s going to lose…
