Sometimes, A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Lefty Words

So if you only get your news from MSNBC, first of all, I pity you. But if you do, you may have heard once, or twice, or a thousand times how rotten Mitt Romney was for showing up in Ohio and encouraging donations of money and goods to victims of Hurricane Sandy. A sample of the vitriol can be found in the video by AP of Andrea Mitchell, and a little later in the day by Martin Bashir.
The criticism comes from the Red Cross asking basically for money and blood, and not being able to process canned goods and supplies. While true the Red Cross cannot take emergency supplies, there are plenty of food banks and other charitable entities in the tri-state area that can. But what the lefties on MSNBC can’t bear to tell you is that both Mitt Romney and Ann Romney solicited money in donations to the Red Cross.
Here’s Mitt yesterday, knowing what was to come as the storm was approaching.
In Wisconsin, his wife, Ann, did the same thing.
But since video is often confusing to our friends on the left, I thought it best to simplify, showing that a picture is indeed worth a thousand words, especially if they’re inaccurate. Here’s Mitt Romney at the collection center today in Ohio.
See the ginormous television screen behind his right shoulder? Guess what’s on that screen? A giant red cross that says Donate $10 for Hurricane Sandy relief by sending a text to 90999.
Honestly, lefties, journalism isn’t really this hard.
