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

To tell someone on his staff to get someone to work with the woman to help her get assistance.

Between fifty to sixty million people will still vote for this man on November 6th.

You mean your underwater lair doesn't have phone service and wifi? It must have been built by Mexicans or something.
 
2012-09-01 02:18:44 PM
Lafittes phone system is still up and running.

Also once the water recedes most landlines will come up as long as they're not remotely powered or lines cut.

The only phone in the underwater lair is currently in use.

Actually, I suspect that would be a dishonest response. He doesn't even know the individual in question - does he have to care about every American who is suffering? Anyways, letting people know government assistance* is available is more helpful than hugging and feeling their pain.

/government assistance Romney, of course, wants to cut/gut - herein lies the problem

Well, it is NOLA, so you have a point. No amount of disaster planning, preparedness, and resources can overcome the fact that there will still be people wandering the streets too stupid to know how to access them.

Pretty much anything except "Go dive underwater and use an electric-powered device"

Hell, "There several agencies that can help; Martin here will help you get in touch with them, because everyone in my campaign wants to make sure you are taken care of." Then have Martin help them find what the guy needs - and make a point of providing an update, where you say what the proper agency to contact is, so other people in a similar situation know what to do.

Exactly. Doesn't this person have a summer retreat they can go to until their primary residence is rebuilt? Like a ranch or something?

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


HAH, then he cuts the welfare!

Romney is consistent about farking up photo ops both domestically and abroad.

I remember one time when money was tight, and my mom had to put some groceries back because she didn't have enough money. I innocently suggested just going to the bank and getting more. I was three years old. Romney might seem out of touch, but he really connects with the average three year old.

djkutch: Eddie Adams from Torrance: 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 could have just told her to eat cake. Same thing.

That's funny, a three year old also doesn't think about the costs of starting 2 wars. WHAR foresight WHAR 3-year-old thamike, WHAR?

Is anyone else starting to think that Citizens United was just a brilliant left-wing play to get filthy rich Republicans to bring home millions of dollars and get it moving in our economy again? There has got to be a point where the rich guys figure out that you can only buy so much advertising before the market is flooded.

If you and your opposition both have enough money to buy roughly half the advertising slots, it doesn't matter that you can out-spend him 20:1. You're still going to get roughly half the ad slots. And if you are advertising an Edsel, it's still an Edsel. But thank you for taking a tiny portion of that trillions that you cycled out of the economy and cycling it back into our economy in the form of advertising and production dollars.
