One of the things that separates gifted politicians from, well, hack politicians is the ability to quickly grasp situations and act accordingly. Enter Hurricane Sandy. Both POTUS and Romney cancelled campaign events in it’s wake, and rightly so. After all, POTUS must communicate with Governors and FEMA to determine where to allocate resources, declarations must be considered and signed, and the country expects their President to lead during a disaster. At first, it looked like Romney was going to put politics aside, to be mindful of the fact that millions of Americans were facing real hardship once Sandy came ashore. That lasted about two hours. The “Victory Rally” planned in Ohio was renamed the “storm relief” rally, and the Romney camp, ever clue-less, implored their supporters to bring canned goods, ostensibly to be sent to needy families in hurricane stricken areas. Were they unaware that the Red Cross does not accept canned food? The time and manpower required to collect, sort, and transport canned goods makes it counter-productive. Nobody there has any disaster experience?
Anyway, while Romney was scrambling to stay relevant in this news cycle, Gov Chris Christie was on the airwaves, praising the leadership of President Obama for his quick response to his requests. The deeply, deeply stupid trio over at Fox and Friends were interviewing him, and being shills, had to find a way to work in Romney’s name. Mistake:
Someone is going to be tasting Gov Christies food long after next Tuesday….
