I don’t care how desperate you are for a local angle on the biggest story right now. If the story you’ve decided to write is What does Michael Brown think of Sandy (h/t) you’re writing the wrong goddamn story. I mean maybe if you preface it with, and do the opposite of what this fucker says.

Seriously, after his monumental fuckup in the wake of Katrina why the hell would you ask his opinion if you had a hangnail? Honestly.

Also, even if you didn’t know it was this fucker, that’s really terrible advice. Obama is being too prepared for a disaster and Something something Benghazi.

He compares Sandy to Benghazi. Wow. How partisan can someone be? Ah, that’s right, he’s a Republican . . .

2. Michael spews:

I saw the headline, didn’t bother to read the article. Why anyone would give a fuck what Michael Brown thinks about anything is beyond me.

3. Roger Rabbit spews:

You mean Brown is still in the country? I thought he fled to Argentina or someplace like that.

4. TheRealFakeRomney spews:

Frankly I’m glad that asshole crawled out from under his rock to open his yap. I appreciate the contrast between then and now.

Also too, not been commenting much in the past few days. Too busy. Have now knocked over 500 doors in King County. On my way to Denver tonight to put CO solidly in the column for Team Blue.

Gekko/Galt is the anvil
We are the HAMMER!

We’re hammering it home!

oops @4 was me.

Also too on disaster relief management, maybe Brownie can help these clowns out


The plan was for supporters to bring hurricane relief supplies to the event, and then deliver the bags of canned goods, packages of diapers, and cases of water bottles to the candidate, who would be perched behind a table along with a slew of volunteers and his Ohio right-hand man, Senator Rob Portman. To complete the project and photo-op, Romney would lead his crew in carrying the goods out of the gymnasium and into the Penske rental truck parked outside.

But the last-minute nature of the call for donations left some in the campaign concerned that they would end up with an empty truck. So the night before the event, campaign aides went to a local Wal Mart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, canned food, and diapers to put on display while they waited for donations to come in, according to one staffer. (The campaign confirmed that it “did donate supplies to the relief effort,” but would not specify how much it spent.)

(…)

As supporters lined up to greet the candidate, a young volunteer in a Romney/Ryan t-shirt stood near the tables, his hands cupped around his mouth, shouting, “You need a donation to get in line!”

Empty-handed supporters pled for entrance, with one woman asking, “What if we dropped off our donations up front?”

The volunteer gestured toward a pile of groceries conveniently stacked near the candidate. “Just grab something,” he said.

Recapping, instead of just sending the Red Cross what it needs, Ca$h, Gekko/Galt spent $5000 at Walmart accumulating what the Red Cross does not want to make Gekko/Galt look like he gives a shit.

Heckuva job!

@5
Amazing.
What a hollow, empty shell of a human being he is, and his enablers.
He will do anything, say anything, lie from the core of his soul, in order to get what he wants.

This is a deeply dangerous amoral being we’re dealing with.

Republicans are scum!

# 5: I knew it was just a photo op designed to pretend he wasn’t really campaigning, but that is just… so…. wrong…. on so many levels.

9. rhp6033 spews:

In the meantime, Romney supporters are circulating a picture of Romney helping to load relief supplies on board a truck, with comments to the effect that “While Romney is actually helping with hurricane relief, Obama is safe from the rain in the White House giving long speeches.”

It’s long past time that the MSM didn’t call Romney out on such infantile tactics. Romney was campaigning with a photo-op while pretending to not be campaigning, while the President was giving valuable instructions to those wanting to help.

10. Geoduck spews:

How bad are the optics on this? Even Serial Conservative can’t think of a positive way to spin it.

By the way, on Monday night I heard on the radio an interview with a trucker. He was part of a 500-truck convoy which had been on “stand-by” since Friday, and left upstate New York Sunday night with supplies of ice, food, cots, blankets, and other relief supplies, heading for Red Cross distribution centers in southern New York state. He said his nephew was in another 500-truck convoy heading northwards to New Jersey.

I decided to call my cousin, a long-haul trucker, and ask him about it. He couldn’t talk much, he was part of the southern convoy. He said he got his notice last Wednesday to arrange his route so he could be in place to pick up his load for the relief effort by the weekend. The only thing left was to know where the hurricane made landfall, that would determine their destination (which Red Cross distribution center they would drive to).

So when the President said that assets were already in place by Monday, he wasn’t exaggerating.

Meanwhile, Romney is simply calling pre-arranged campaign rallies as photo-ops for relief efforts, collecting supplies which will have to be trucked halfway across the U.S. and which will have to be sorted, cleaned, and sent to thir relief locations. My guess is that they will be available for distribution sometime next week – long after items like canned food and tee-shirts are no longer needed.

Anyway, Mike Brown only managed to rate an interview with a third-string newspaper in his hometown. Sorta funny how this went viral, instead of being buried and hardly read by anybody. Next time, just ignore him, and maybe he will go away?
