Skip to comments.MSNBC: Nobody Needs Your Hurricane Donations Mitt Romney
Posted on 10/31/2012 8:35:32 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Yesterday Mitt Romney turned a previously scheduled campaign event in Ohio into a hurricane relief event. Romney asked supporters to bring canned goods and other supplies to help storm victims recover on the East Coast. He only spoke for ten minutes at the event and quickly jumped in to help load supplies. His campaign bus has been accepting hurricane relief donations since Monday in Northern Virginia. Sounds like a great idea right? Not according to MSNBC.
Reporters and anchors at the far-left TV outlet were appalled at Romney's efforts to give back to the community, after all, his charity and generosity doesn't fit with their "Romney is an evil rich guy who doesn't care about regular people" narrative.

Are these people sick? And yes you heard them correctly, they are actually criticizing Romney for trying to help people.
With all due respect to the Red Cross, they do amazing work, but they are also a large bureaucracy set up like the federal government. Andrea Mitchell made the point in the first video that Romney was collecting things "the Red Cross doesn't need" and that the Red Cross wants blood and money (which by the way, people like Mitt Romney are capable of donating large sums of money to organizations like the Red Cross because they are personally wealthy, something MSNBC has continually demonized).

MSNBCing? Its a channel no one watches.
How DARE Romney interfere with the media’s coverage of Obama acting Presidential? It’s racist I tell you!
When Mitt wins the election, he should work to make the FCC pull the broadcast license from MSNBC and NBC if they try anything similar.
Since when did the Bible have a commandment that says only the president is allowed to give to charity? Such a commandment doesn’t exist. So frankly, MSNBC and Obama have pretty much made up their own political religion that I could honestly care less for.
Helping? Red Cross said they do not need the canned goods. There is no one to sort them....no place to store them and no way to transport them. Did Romney listen??? He is pandering. Period.
ah PMSNBC how much do you donate to the effort?? ummm
I start my day with Morning Joe every morning. As do most of my friends.
Oh, are they the only charity working there? Romney could create his own instant charity network if he wanted to. Talk about buying votes.
The Red Cross is top heavy with administrators who are paid handsomely for distributing Other People’s Money....just like the government. Both want cash, so it can be spent by the administrators, who funnel money to agencies who agree with their ideas. Very little gets to individuals who need the help.
Do your charitable giving directly to families in need or through churches. Your gift will actually get to people who need it.
That came from the Red Cross. Not msnbc....Red Cross said not to collect canned goods...for obvious reasons.
NO body needs the canned goods? You gotta be kidding. So those of us not in the disaster zone who wish to help are pandering?
What is with you?
It is not me......the Red Cross has said it. Time and time again. They have no one to sort them..no place to store them and no way to transport them to the flooded areas.
MSNBC is still broadcasting?
Guess the money from the democrats is keeping it afloat.
Even more, a family stayed over at my house for the duration of the storm, just to be safe, however, canned goods are important to those just rescued from the New Jersey and Pennsylvania flood zones. Don’t listen to the guy, because IMHO, the guy is being a real troll.
So, if it doesn't go through the Red Cross it doesn't count? They do have the part about clearing credit cards and checks down pat. Go figure.
Oh you bet! Always.
I am not a guy, I am not a troll and I was quoting the Red Cross.
No one needs obama bucks either. We are all out in force - neighbor helping neighbor. obama is using this for a photo op an christie is helping him. This is obama’s katrina. We will blame him for every single stranded person. No power for 7-10 days. I was able to get to my sons house on staten island. Things here are just as devastated as the jersey shore.
