    Romney's idea of saving money is cutting as he put it "everything that's not necessary". To whom?

    I believe Fema was part of that, just as public broadcasting and the infamous destruction of big bird. Hasn't mentioned much about cutting things that apply to the very rich, however. So if you are a multimillionaire, you probably don't need to worry so much about losing your caviar and such.

    Because he said so, during the debates when he was discussing bureaus he would eliminate.

    During a CNN debate at the height of the GOP primary, Mitt Romney was asked, in the context of the Joplin disaster and FEMA’s cash crunch, whether the agency should be shuttered so that states can individually take over responsibility for disaster response.

    “Absolutely,” he said. “Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction. 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?”

    “Including disaster relief, though?” debate moderator John King asked Romney.

    “We cannot — we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids,” Romney replied. “It is simply immoral, in my view, for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we’ll all be dead and gone before it’s paid off. It makes no sense at all.”

    Direct quote, in context, if he's flipped again that's nothing new.

    Now, where the cash strapped states are supposed to get the money from is something he didn't touch with a pole.

  • Romney is on video saying that one of the agencies he wants to get rid of is FEMA. So, I wonder who are the stupid ones, those who have seen the video or those who refuse to believe that Romney would really stoop that low.

    Because Romney expressed a desire to do just that, and to make disaster recovery purely a State responsibility rather than a Federal responsibility, maybe?

    How is that NOT "killing FEMA"? (In case you did not know, that "F" in 'FEMA' stands for "Federal")

    Who was it you said was "stupid"?

    I guess because he said that he would like to do that:

    Mitt Romney In GOP primary Debate: Shut Down Federal Disaster Agency, Send Responsibility To The States. It would no longer be FEMA, a federal program.. There would be 50 state programs.

    Well, if a small segment of Liberals claim this "Frankenstorm" is because God

    is telling us He doesn't want Romney, yet they dismiss God without a second

    thought, wouldn't it make sense they would make this outrageous claim too ?

    The know such "intimate" details of Romney's life and personality, yet they

    "accept" that Obama has HIDDEN 40% of his ENTIRE life from the very public

    who voted him in. One of the greatest Liberal hypocrisies is their criticism of

    Romney's Student Draft Deferment, yet no ONE has ever ( or will ever ) see

    Obama's Selective Service papers.

    Because he would. He would break up the program and give it to states to handle.
