Romney sickens liberals by donating $5,000 worth of goods to storm victims


Romney's campaign donated $5000 in goods to hurricane relief & used a campaign rally to ask others to donate!

That about sums it up. After Mitt Romney released his most current tax return showing he and his wife had donated more than $4 million to charity, his opponents were quick to pounce. Sen. Harry Reid denounced the Romneys’ charitable giving as calculated tax manipulation, while others contended that it didn’t count anyway, since they probably gave through their church and not a real charity.

So when the Romney campaign decided to buy $5,000 worth of peanut butter, canned goods and diapers to kick-start a storm relief event in Kettering, Ohio, yesterday, it didn’t take long for people to label the move “sickening,” a “great lie” and a case of “fraud.” What’s so wrong with donating food and diapers? Plenty (if Barack Obama doesn’t do it, that is).

First, the “useless” donations were obviously a cynical campaign stunt.

New embarassing details about Romney “relief rally.”His campbought $5k of food for people to “donate” back to him…

So Romney bought those useless cans himself? $5000 photo op? This guy can fund FEMA. What a disgraceful person.

Romney spending $5000 for a disaster relief photo-op instead of giving directly to red cross should really be a scandal

So Romney went to Walmart. Bought $5000 worth of food then brought it to his “relief” event and handed it out to supporters to hand back…

No one wants your junk food anyway, Romney. Sure, the Red Cross begrudgingly says it’s thankful for the effort, but just send money next time. More money, though. Heck, Romney’s campaign is practically doing more damage than Sandy by donating food. Some people are allergic to peanut butter, you monster. Wasn’t killing that woman with your cancer enough to satisfy your bloodlust?

Red Cross tells us grateful for Romney donation but prefer people send money or donate blood dont collect goods NOT best way to help #Sandy

Romney’s campaign bought $5,000 worth of junk food from Wal Mart for a fake photo op. Red Cross won’t accept the stuff.

Romney campaign bought $5000 worth of canned food the Red Cross didn’t want for their “flood relief” campaign stop.

Romney gives typical food bank fare.. granola bars (candy), peanut butter (frequently allergenic). Just donate $5000. like the rest of us…

Pathetic how the same Romney that raised MILLIONS $$$ at campaign fundraisers only managed $5000 for hurricane victims. @thereval

— Physguy (@physguy2) October 31, 2012

Will Romney ever see the light and realize that a truly caring person would hand out taxpayer-funded cell phones and food stamps?

If Mitt Romney wants to help hurricane victims, he should donate some of his vast fortune:
