Hurricane Sandy has the entire East Coast running scared and preparing for the most treacherous storm in 20 years. But the real storm is coming November 6, when the country runs out into the streets and into structures called “polling places” to take cover and show off their political prowess for picking the best candidate for President of the United States (Obama).
But it was just a moment ago (in campaign time) that Mitt Romney, stood with other presidential candidate hopefuls like Herman Cain and spoke out to the world that the “federal disaster agencies” should be shut down and the responsibility sent back to the state.
He was dead serious and without flinching made it clear that the country could not handle the debt of these disasters and should leave it to the states to figure it out:

And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better. Instead of thinking, in the federal budget, what we should cut, we should ask the opposite question, what should we keep?”
Well, in typical ambivalent Romney fashion or rather, “I messed up, someone else clean it up” Romney fashion, he sent someone to translate what he was really saying:
“Gov. Romney wants to ensure states, who are the first responders and are in the best position to aid impacted individuals and communities, have the resources and assistance they need to cope with natural disasters,” the Romney official said.
