Romney Campaign to Deliver Supplies to Storm Victims

By GOPUSA Staff

The Romney/Ryan campaign bus will have a new mission over the next several days. Rather than transporting the candidates from stop to stop, the bus will be used to deliver relief supplies to those struck by Hurricane Sandy.

As reported by The Hill, "Mitt Romney's campaign has sent its bus to collect and distribute donated supplies for those in the path of Hurricane Sandy."

Romney was originally slated to campaign over the weekend in Virginia, but canceled plans there and joined running mate Paul Ryan in Ohio. Curt Cashour, Romney's Virginia communications director, tweeted Monday that the campaign bus will instead be used to transport basic supplies to local storm-relief centers.

The Romney campaign will also be collecting supplies at its offices in North Carolina, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania.

As a campaign stop in Ohio, Romney said, "I know that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast. And our thoughts and prayers are with the people who will find themselves in harm's way."

    Yes, Obama was fortunate enough to be able to Blame George Bush for all the wealth of assets he put in place for just such catastrophies. Obama didn’t build that,,,,this time you CAN blame George Bush compliments of Katrina lesson learned

      This is something proactive and concrete the FUTURE ADMINISTRATION undertakes that even the demoncrats can’t dispute. Maybe they could hand out free cell phones with the Romney/ Ryan logo to entice the freeloaders to switch their allegiance before voting!

      Already the Liberal Socialist MSM talking heads are yapping about how we should all give up our freedoms and join socialist government collectives which are needed in times like Hurricane Sandy,,,,Well Bozos we Conservatives agree with your half truth which is always most dangerous to the whole truth. We DO agree that men come together to form governments to do COLLECTIVELY that which they cannot do as individuals, and feeding, clothing, housing THE PEOPLE during times of Hurricane crisis is exactly what governments are suppose to do, which is the truth part. The lie part of their half truth socialist ideology is that people form governments to do collectively in normal times that which they were designed and created to do as INDIVIDUALS in control of SELF. like in Democratic Republics designed for SELF-Governing people, like feed clothe and house yourself when there are no emergencies, but Liberals choose to feed off your fellow citizens to deplete their ability to help the truly needy in times of crisis. Hello! We have ALL seen what happens when government does in normal times for people in dependency that which they were only designed to do in emergencies. These Democrats who would rule in power over your minds and personal property always have some manufactured emergency to justify doing for you what you were designed by your creator to do on your own which is to create, not consume and covet that which your neighbor has honestly earned. Ask yourselves if it is the creators of wealth who will offer help and sustenance to you during the hurricane or perhaps your empty bag neighbor on welfare with hand out whose pockets are empty. Is it the man who invested his surplus wealth to be in a position to actually help others or the one who squandered and spent not only his own unearned redistributed wealth, but went out and borrowed from us and our children to get by in a world,,,,Is it Romney or Obama??Is this the guy who can help you now. Just watch all the dependent bred losers flock like sheep to the New Orleans Super bowl of their own destruction. Then see how reliable all those wealth wasting government programs and wasted human lives of dependency become.

      And the Drudge Report is indicating that MSNBC is ridiculing the effort by Romney. And the White House said that if you need help go and turn on to the internet.

    If I were part of the Romney campaign, I would advise them to tape over the logos, so as to remove the hypercritical Left’s opportunity to blast Romney for “politicizing the storm.”

      ROFLMAO … if it wasn’t so truthfully in character with who Obama is rather than who he pretends to be.

      Obama-Nation is an Abomination.

      I agree that the logo should be covered. Everyone would know who was sending the bus anyway and the covered logo would speak volumes about the integrity our next president. I love what he is doing and don’t want to see him openly taking credit for it during the campaign. I surely do hope they cover the logo.

      You are right. Our congressman pulled a stunt like this during the 2001 Ice Storm. It made everyone angry over the blatant campaigning.

    This shows that the R&R Team does care about the people of this Country. It is encourging to read about this.
    I pray that all those affected by the East Coast storm have a chance to reflect on their lives and realize that Jesus Christ is still in control of history and when We the People continue to reject His ways we will be disciplined. This has to do with the five cycles of discipline upon Nations who turn against the Lord Jesus Christ. See Leviticus 26:14-28 & Deuteronomy 28:48-67 — the same principle applies today. Weather is one of them.

    Brilliant! Shows what a successful man can accomplish. We have a choice next week, so let’s elect a man the nation can be proud to have as president, Romney, instead of a “blaming man” we have to apologize for having elected.

    It’s called “Leading by Example”. While BHO is pictured with his sleeves rolled up sitting behind his desk in the West Wing, the only candidate in this race who is genuinely presidential is in the field meeting needs.Actions do speak louder than words. Nuff said!

    The obvious difference between a “Doer” and a “Talker”. Obama’s buddy Raim said “Never let a crisis go to waste”. Romney doesn’t waste time with bureaucracy and “playing President”. Romney is a leader. Romney Rocks!

    Logo on the bus or not Romney is showing that he can react to the needs of the people…not asking the government to help them (which will also be done and rightfully) but doing what he can, right away, rather than waiting for FEMA to show up.

    I’ll be it is the private and church groups who will be on the ground, in the affected neighborhoods and states long before the first government aid gets there. These groups have less bureaucratic garbage to sort through to get the help where it needs to be.

    When doing a good work, you’re thinking about the object of the good work (i.e.the suffering folk). The ‘logo cynics’ can go scratch and vote for the paragon of human virtue in the White House…

    Romney’s public service isn’t new. In July 1996, the 14-year-old daughter of Robert Gay, a partner at Bain Capital, had disappeared. She had attended a rave party in New York City and gotten high on ecstasy. Three days later, her distraught father had no idea where she was. Romney took immediate action. He closed down the entire firm and asked all 30 partners and employees to fly to New York to help find Gay’s daughter.
    Romney set up a command center at the LaGuardia Marriott and hired a private detective firm to assist with the search. He established a toll-free number for tips, coordinating the effort with the NYPD, and went through his Rolodex and called everyone Bain did business with in New York and asked them to help find his friend’s missing daughter. Romney’s accountants at Price Waterhouse Cooper put up posters on street poles, while cashiers at a pharmacy owned by Bain put fliers in the bag of every shopper. Romney and the other Bain employees scoured every part of New York and talked with everyone they could – prostitutes, drug addicts – anyone.

    That day, their hunt made the evening news, which featured photos of the girl and the Bain employees searching for her. As a result, a teenage boy phoned in, asked if there was a reward, and then hung up abruptly. The NYPD traced the call to a home in New Jersey, where they found the girl in the basement, shivering and experiencing withdrawal symptoms from a massive ecstasy dose. Doctors later said the girl might not have survived another day. Romney’s former partner credits Mitt Romney with saving his daughter’s life, saying, ‘It was the most amazing thing, and I’ll never forget this to the day I die.’

    Mitt Romney simply can’t help himself. He sees a problem, and his mind immediately sets to work solving it, sometimes consciously, and sometimes not-so-consciously. He doesn’t do it for self-aggrandizement or for personal gain. He does it because that’s just how he’s wired.
