Obama talks about it; Romney gets it done. Perfect synopsis of the two men. And for even more irony, MSNBC criticized Romney for organizing a private event that helps people in need.

The criticism was for collecting specific goods at that event when it was made clear to him that cash and blood donations were what was required.

So food banks never need any food after a disaster? Cash donations were also accepted.

Who made it "clear" as you say, the "Charity police? I hope, for your sake, you are not in a position to need help one day and only have the govt to rely on. I would rather rely on human compassion, understanding, care and concern from fellow citizens not Politics/Govt and beauracracy to help me.. I may starve, freeze, die waiting.. and all for too little too late..

As you already know, Mitt Romney cancelled campaign events Monday and Tuesday in light of Hurricane Sandy however, he is planning to hold a disaster relief event in Ohio Tuesday afternoon, which was originally supposed to be a campaign rally.

Romney early today bagged plans to go to Lima and Dayton Tuesday, citing Hurricane Sandy. But his campaign just sent a release: Tomorrow’s event in Dayton is on – this time as a disaster relief event where Romney may make brief remarks. The campaign is encouraging attendees to bring disaster relief supplies to the event.
