Romney campaign gave $90K
to Red Cross after Sandy

Politico, by Kenneth P. Vogel

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/2/2013 2:16:16 AM

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign quietly donated nearly $90,000 to the Red Cross in late November, according to a report filed Thursday night with the Federal Election Commission. The donation came on Nov. 30 – about one month after Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the East Coast, stretching thin the organization’s resources, and weeks after the GOP candidate lost to President Barack Obama. Neither Romney nor his campaign publicized the donation, despite liberal allegations in the days before the election that he had used the Red Cross as a political prop.

Zero donated tax hikes for the Red Cross. You didn´t think he´d use his campaign money, do you? Or for that matter, his OWN money?

Folks on the right donate their own money to charity. Lefties donate Other People´s Money... Folks on the right donate quietly or anonymously because they are not seeking any pats on the back--they just want to help those less fortunate. Lefties make big fanfare and advertise every penny they can associate themselves with even if they had nothing to do with the contribution. Lefties want people to think they are "altruistic" and really care evn though they only truly care about themselves and looking good to the public. LoFos think lefties are generous and selfless and righties are greedy and selfish--but the truth is polar opposite. Why? Propaganda, manipulation and lying media...

That will make a juicy tax deduction plus it will give the RC more money to buy donuts and coffee to sell at the next disaster.

I believe #5 that you missed the point! If the Romney campaign had donated zero dollars to help the Sandy victims, they could have spent the entire 90 thousand on some right wing cause. Instead they donated the money to help the very people who 3 weeks before had voted overwhelmingly against the Romney ticket!

Maybe you gon´t get it #5, but most folks do!

I don´t have ay faith in the RC anymore. They´re collecting money on their old reputation which was excellent at one time.I mean here we are months later and people are still sleeping in tents which are being blown away by wind.What happened to all the concert money? Why are some areas still without electric. It took two days to get wall St. up and running but the rest of the poor slobs have to wait for months for one iota of help.There´s been no coverage in the news about how these people are suffering.

FEMA has been a huge failure in this also.Obama and the left wants everybody to depend on the government and when it´s time for government to answer the call,they´re no where to be found.

The whole time the left has been a failure on this,they´re using the disaster as a wedge to blame global warming,even co-opting Derrick Jeter to the cause.

Only a couple blocks away,Obama cronies are gleefully collecting their multi million dollar bonuses,try prying a dime out of those people for aid.

I doubt that Romney gave to the Red Cross with no confidence in them. Having been over seas and experiencing the services they provide, I still support them even though I have been disappointed with them in some respects.

I do agree that the Salvation Army as well as ADRA are my preferred groups to support and to whom I donate frequently.

That is because Motto Romney is a decent human being who would have worked to ensure America´s greatness and well-being, instead of an anti-American slist who is intent on our destruction.

This weekend is the dedication of the newest memorial on the State Capitol grounds--the Texas Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The bronze statues were finished just a few weeks ago at a foundry in Bastrop. We were there for the final pours along with some others who have a vested interest. Man has been working with bronze for thousands of years and most of those at the Heart of Texas Foundry hope this bronze will last thousands of years. It´s to remember the 3,417 Texas vets who did not come back from the Vietnam conflict. This final pouring culminates an 11 year

(Tweet, Photographs) If the unidentified aircraft photographed over Amarillo turns out to be a new U.S. spy plane, it wouldn´t be the first time. Aviation Week & Space Technology journalist Bill Sweetman has posted photos taken March 10 by two veteran sky watchers, Steve Douglass and Dean Muskett. In his blog post of March 28, Sweetman writes that he and two Aviation Week editors agree that the photos depict "something real." In other words, these pictures aren´t easily explained away by reports of known military flights or the work of someone who got carried away with Photoshop. So what can aviation

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A police officer involved in the frantic rescue effort after the Washington mudslide recovered the body of his own sister trapped in her car. Dawn Brunner, 42, described how he was called by other rescue workers to inspect a blue object buried in the pile of mud. Mr Brunner´s sister, Summer Raffo, 36 was known to have been driving in the area. He told his teenage son, who was also working as a volunteer with the search team, to brace himself. "He said he´d been preparing himself for five days," Mr Brunner recalled. At least 26 people are known to

The 2016 presidential primaries are still years away, but an unofficial one held this weekend in Las Vegas could prove incredibly lucky for at least one GOP contender´s coffers. It´s the spring meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition, which is held at the Venetian casino, owned by Sheldon Adelson. Yes, the same Sheldon Adelson who donated $15 million to Newt Gingrich´s super PAC and $30 million to Mitt Romney´s super PAC. Four potential presidential candidates are hoping they can cajole Adelson, who is also on the Republican Jewish Coalition´s board, into giving them a leg-up in the already crowded Republican

Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the nation, with more than 10 million residents partly due to an influx of legal and illegal immigrants. According to census figures, L.A. County has an estimated "10,017,068 residents," which is "nearly twice as many as the next largest: Cook County in Illinois, which had an estimated 5,240,700 people." The Los Angeles Times reports that what pushed Los Angeles County past the "10-million mark was an influx of people from abroad," for Los Angeles County "had the highest net number of international migrants between 2012 and 2013 -- 39,000 people -- compared

The Clinton Library took the wraps off another batch of White House documents Friday afternoon, offering new insights into how aides scrambled to address the Monica Lewinsky scandal, how the hot-button issue of race tied the White House staff up in knots and how former President Bill Clinton cast a wide net for advice in advance of his major speeches. The new set of Clinton documents make little mention of then-first lady Hillary Clinton, and so are unlikely to have a major political impact. However, many of the memos were written by or mention aides to Bill Clinton who now

Bill Maher took on Paul Ryan‘s recent comments about black culture and while he didn’t necessarily agree with Ryan, he did find it striking that prominent black people have made the same point he did but haven’t been attacked by the left, which begged the question, “Is something less true if a white person says it?” Comedian W. Kamau Bell argued you can’t blame people in the inner city “for not having jobs when there’s no jobs in the inner cities.” Republican Rick Lazio pointed out that Democrats are the ones running these cities and asked what they’ve ever done

More than 100 aftershocks have been reported since a magnitude 5.1 earthquake rattled Southern California on Friday night. Most of the aftershocks have been small, but some were strong enough to be felt in the areas around the epicenter in northwestern Orange County. Meanwhile, officials surveyed the damage, which for the most part was considered minor. Fullerton police said early Saturday that as many as 50 people had been displaced by the quake. Several buildings are being investigated for possible structural damage, including some apartment buildings. The quake, centered near La Habra, caused furniture to tumble, pictures to fall off

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

"This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the
