Mitt Romney is sticking to what he said, that FEMA should be done away with, and let the states and or the private sector take over. You know what that would be like if the private sector was running it. It would make any disaster more worse, than what actual mayhem and destruction it already created.

Axe FEMA, Romney Says – as Hurricane Sandy Looms.
2,000 Turn Out for Biden in Florida as 725 Show up for Ryan in New Hampshire.
On Saturday, V.P. Joe Biden campaigned in Florida, as 2,000 people listened to him speak. On the other hand, Paul Ryan drew a crowd of 725 in Derry, New Hampshire.
Florida has 27 electoral college votes, NH 4. It doesn’t make sense to be in a state that has a small vote, compared to the some of the bigger states like NY, California, Illinois, etc.
So in a nutshell, Romney/Ryan keep drawing small crowds, and Obama/Biden keep drawing the bigger crowds, it seems to be a no brainer that the voters are tired of listening to the same old stale Reagan & Bush bullshit.

Sarah Palin calls President Obama and Nancy Pelosi liars, and says the Republicans are trying to “save” Medicare while the Democrats are killing it. Ms. Palin called the President a liar.

House Republican Paul Ryan defends his budget blueprint, medicare overhaul.
Wisconsin Rep Paul Ryan (R)
In a speech before the Economic Club of Chicago, the Wisconsin Republican maintained, “We cannot avert a debt crisis unless we directly address the rising cost of health.”
Ryan said his plan to overhaul Medicare would “give power to deny business to inefficient providers. [Democrats] plan is to give government the power to deny care to seniors.”
Paul Ryan R-Wisconsin
Paul Ryan, the anointed budget writer for the GOP led House, accuses ThinkProgress of “Stacking Crowds” at his town hall meetings in his home state of Wisconsin.
When the Democrats was having their town hall meetings in 2009, it was alright for the Tea Baggers, and other right wing loons, to scream, shout, and wreak all kinds of havoc. But when the Republicans have town hall meetings, they say people are bussed in to disrupt them, and its not right to do that. Well Ryan, all I can say is “Pay Back is a Bitch.”
Give ‘em hell Harry Truman tells it like it is. There is a speech that he gave in September 11, 1951, at a dedication of the GAO office building. To bad he wasn’t around today, because we could sure use him.
