The Romneybot programmers need to start planning for these events and rolling out updates as needed.

True facts of life: grass is green, water is wet, and Mitt Romney's an a**hole!

He probably didn't understand why she didn't just go to one of her other homes.

Not surprising

So? 211 is a legitimate number for Essential Community Services in many states.

I suppose this is newsworthy in that it's one of the few times where Romney hasn't failed when appearing in public.

Other than telling her to go home to a home that is gone, I agree Romney finally has a campaign success.

"He said, go home and call 211."

He said to the homeless person.

Romney asked Jindal "how he could help with storm relief"?

Are you farking kidding with that shiat?

Obvious photo op is obvious.

They are really bad at this.

It's time for a Scary Thought:

If this man is elected, there will come a day when he meets with a foreign leader whose country has nuclear weapons and whose decision to use them on us rests entirely on Romney's diplomatic skills.

When that day comes, we're all going to die.

Hey Ann Romney, when are the grown ups going to show up?

If this is a campaign success, I just can't wait to see what a President Romney foreign policy success looks like.

Romney allows Israel to bomb the crap outta Iran and hijinks ensue, for one.

This. Is. Romney's. Katrina.

Cain had a 9-9-9 plan.
Romney's is a 2-1-1.

Empathy skills of an aristocrat.

If the Dems let the Repubs define Romney/Ryan as more "man of the people" than Obama, they will have accomplished the greatest swindle since Bush.

Obama actually IS a work hard and make something of yourself guy; Romney was handed everything he had and now thinks that he's better than we are because of it.

Why don't these people just ask their housekeeping staff to clean up the mess?
 
2012-09-01 01:43:16 PM  
211 is the code to reach the staff at his house so its a natural mistake.
 
2012-09-01 01:45:43 PM  
Go to your home that is under water and call 211 to receive govt assistance I don't like and plan to cut. Solid plan.
 
2012-09-01 01:47:34 PM  
"Oh, so you lost your home in a fire, eh? You should go home and call someone who cares."

Are you an idiot, troll, or just too stupid to read the article?
 
2012-09-01 01:55:36 PM  
Maybe the Free Market can provide affordable, competitive disaster relief services to this person.

I'm sure that's what RMoney wants.

Not that whole socialist government disaster relief.

The 2012 model year Romneybot just isn't selling as well as his owners would hope. You'd think for the ridiculous fortune that was spent on designing and programming him, that he could handle a task as simple as Disaster_Photo_Op without creating a MediaCircus fault. Maybe they used George Bush Jr. as one of his psychological templates in the programming.

He's the hero the GOP deserves.

He must have assumed her butler or one of her maids would have a cell phone to use, when she got to her underwater house.
 
2012-09-01 01:57:29 PM  
211 is the number for the private fire service rich people will use once the union thug fire fighters are busted up to free up money for more tax cuts

Stupid phone
 
2012-09-01 01:57:33 PM  
"He said, go home and call 211." That's a public service number offered in many states.

Yes, he damn well better, before Ryan slashes it.

Mittens is as subtle and tactful as a lead pipe.

Simpsons did it.

I know you're being snarky, but this is actually a very, very real possibility. I expect Obama to go full Bush41 on his ass at some point in latte October.

"It's very frustrating insane, very. We go through Katrina and Rita and now we're going through Cindy, Lee and now Isaac."


I'm not usually the guy who says something about not learning a lesson, but, really?


gilgigamesh: He probably didn't understand why she didn't just go to one of her other homes.


Romney or Ben Stein?

"I'm not saying everyone can do it, but everyone can take a couple thousand dollars, and put it in a safe place so that when a disaster strikes and the ATM's don't work, he or she will have enough money to go out and buy food even at gouging prices. Anyone can have a car that he keeps in a high, dry spot, and you're wrong by the way, millions, and tens of millions, have a second home."

He will also have a similar affect to drinking water and the environment should he be elected.

2012-09-01 02:05:10 PM  
Did someone point out TO HIS FARKING FACE how ridiculous his statement was?

It's no use pointing it out in lamestream MSM media, as it will be brushed aside as partisan hogwash. Someone needs to get out there and point out the idiocy as it is spoken.
 
2012-09-01 02:05:41 PM  
Those flood victims should be far more boot-strappy and just sell off some of their stock to rebuild their houses - just like the Romney's did, when things got tough at BYU.

/buncha parasites
 
2012-09-01 02:07:46 PM  
To be fair, 211 is Romney's speed-dial for his broker.
 
2012-09-01 02:09:03 PM  
Glad boot strappy Romney is out there so he can tell people call the government for help!

Can't Jindal spend $200,000 dollars and build a berm and ignore those stupid "scientists"? It worked so well last time...

Never knew what 211 was, so I looked it up.
To rephrase what he said was "Go home and call public assistance and get on welfare"

Yeah, that's some serious farking fail right there
 
2012-09-01 02:11:18 PM  
Call 211 was the correct response, go home was not. Mr. Romney gets half credit for this response.

/Which is much better than usual...

Why did people expect Romney to do any better? When he went overseas to show off his foreign relation skills, he pissed off the Brits, the Poles, and the Palestinians, all in less than a week. Why would a trip anywhere else be different?
 
2012-09-01 02:12:06 PM  
What would have been the correct response?

Or it could be a case of him being an idiotic asshole.
