Romney Vs. Sandy

At the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney said, "President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family." This crack about climate change is now particularly offensive after the death and destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy. Forecast the Facts, which is "dedicated to ensuring that Americans hear the truth about climate change," produced an ad that compared Romney's absurd remarks with the dire reality of "the rise of the oceans." Watch:

Hurricane Sandy has done of us all a favor-
by causing us to focus on Romney's skewed thinking:
Consider Romney’s advice for storm & disaster survivors:
"Don’t be a victim, and stop looking for handouts!"
And.... ask your parents for help!
Heck, Romney will dismantle FEMA and the EPA 
(= more $$$ for his people/corporations).
Leave it to the states, he says.
Yeah, sure. The damage from Katrina was FOUR times Louisiana’a state budget!.
Maybe Romney will make us dams.... out of his used Etch-A-Sketches?
What we need is a tidal wave.......of voters.....
to sweep these kind of guys out of power.
THAT is the BEST way to help the victims of present and future Sandys.
...AND ....the best way to help yourself, and your family.
Obama does not dismiss 47% of America like Romney.
Obama says: This is not a Republican America.
This is not a Democratic America.
This is the UNITED States of America.
p.s. This is not mere rhetoric. For as you yourself said: in many ways, Mitt Romney's opposition to federal disaster relief programs is what the election is all about. President Barack Obama supports using government to help those in a crisis get back on their feet. Mitt Romney believes that government has no role in helping people who are dealing with disaster. Those two very different views of America's future are on the ballot next week. Your choice. Choose well.
Choose as if your life depended on it.
Because some day.....it just might.
Admit it Mitt. We know from your values that you're not a Christian.
But heck, you're not even a Mormon. Come on Mitt, let’s be honest:
YOUR REAL GOD IS MONEY.
YOUR saints are those who have the most money
..... those who want to BUY this ELECTION - and this COUNTRY
......and TO HELL with the rest of us.
They try to drown us out with their dollars.
But WE still have a voice. And it’s called our VOTE.
We need a President for ALL the people -
NOT a President of the wealthy, by the wealthy,
and for the wealthy. And that ain’t you Mitt.

Stahchaz, You're right on target regarding the difference between the two candidates. Romney himself said he'd privatize FEMA-and then flip-flopped on it, of course. Let's hope the majority has seen through him when they vote tomorrow.
