Sandy's Just A Coming Attraction

During a CNN debate at the height of the GOP primary, Mitt Romney was asked whether FEMA should be shuttered and responsibility for disaster response should be shifted to the states.

"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."

I hope the undecided voters in the affected areas remember that in Romneyworld it would be immoral and senseless for the federal government to help them.
