Mitt Romney Gives FEMA Support Amid Serious Questions

Mitt Romney is doing his best to avoid answering questions by reporters about the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) since he attended a “storm relief” event in Ohio for Hurricane Sandy.

A TV pool asked Romney at least five times, whether he would eliminate FEMA as president/what he would do with FEMA. He ignored the questions, but they are audible on cam. The music stopped at points, and the questions would have been audible to him.

Additional questions the Republican Party’s nominee for President ignored while he was collecting hurricane supplies are listed below:

“Gov are you going to eliminate FEMA?” a print pooler shouted, receiving no response.
Wires reporters asked more questions about FEMA that were ignored.

Romney kept coming over near pool to pick up more water. He ignored these questions:

“Gov are you going to see some storm damage?”

“Gov has [New Jersey Gov.] Chris Christie invited you to come survey storm damage?”

“Gov you’ve been asked 14 times, why are you refusing to answer the question?”

“Governor Romney believes that states should be in charge of emergency management in responding to storms and other natural disasters in their jurisdictions,” said campaign spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg. “As the first responders, states are in the best position to aid affected individuals and communities and to direct resources and assistance to where they are needed most. This includes help from the federal government and FEMA.”
