For starters, we now have word that what made Romney’s scheduled campaign stop in Ohio technically a “relief effort” was a $5,000 shopping run to Wal-Mart. If that wasn’t shameless enough, apparently folks could use the campaign-purchased donations to donate back to Romney:
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.
Two teenage boys retrieved a jar of peanut butter each, and got in line. When it was their turn, they handed their “donations” to Romney. He took them, smiled, and offered an earnest “Thank you.”
Romney’s doing all he can to try and distract from his previous commitment to disband FEMA. But so far he’s only drawn more ire and head-shaking, with less than a week until the election.
