Ed has already covered Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s 2011 comments that he’d love to not only do away with FEMA, but also privatize disaster relief, but I find it extremely telling that Mitt Romney (version 2012)
really, really really doesn’t want to answer questions about whether he still supports eliminating FEMA.
“Governor, are you going to see some storm damage?” one reporter asked.
Several others again asked Romney whether he would eliminate FEMA.
“Governor, you’ve been asked 14 times. Why are you refusing to answer the question?” one asked.
Despite Mitt Romney’s refusal to show a little backbone and answer for previous comments he’s made, his campaign aides indicated Romney would not abolish FEMA if he became president. Of course, I don’t think any rational person would believe anything that comes out of the mouths of Mitt Romney or anyone associated with his campaign, because telling the truth isn’t a strength of Mitt “say anything to get elected” Romney.
