    Where are the Koch’s, Romney’s and Trump’s charitable contributions??
    (Other than a truck full of cans…)
    Millions for campaigns, not one cent for relief.

    What’s worse is that the staged Romney relief rally collected STUFF—the Red Cross has asked repeatedly, over the years, for cash donations so they may buy the necessary items as near to the disaster areas as is feasible. Romney’s staff went to a WalMart and bought $5,000 worth of canned goods so the attendees would have bogus donations to pile up beside Willtt.

    What Maroons.

    That’s a good question. Trump says he is worth 8 billion. But it’s possible he really doesn’t have much money after all and needs all of his pennies.

    Do your job, catch crap from the party of ‘no’.

    Actually Romney’s charitable giving is listed on the forms he released. He gave 7 million dollars to charity in the last two years. He gave away to charity his inheritance, his salary for running the olympics, and donated 1 million to the olympics on top of that. Compare that to Gore who gave all of 357 dollars in 1997 or Biden who gave less than 2% of his income.

    Remember folks, Mitt thinks it’s immoral for the federal government to assist states in need. CC and the other Govs are on their own in a Romney presidency.

    Of course, if Obama didn’t give Christie the support he did, then the righties would be criticizing him for not giving bi-partisan support to a Republican Governor, or taking the votes of a mostly blue state for granted.

    I think the people see this issue differently. The situation in NJ is far from normal and the Gov. will need all the help he can get. A good relationship with the CEO of the whole country can’t hurt, right?

    MItt “saved” Salt Lake City, and the Olympics, with a mere $1.3 BILLION in taxpayer dollars, from the feds. MItt’s “fraud” of donating the canned goods, is typical of his career, campaign and “giving”.


    While many modern plutocrats DO work on building foundations, and doing good works with SOME of their profits, like Bill Gates, Soros, Buffett, and others, there IS a component, like neocons, that don’t, or “stack the deck”. Mitt contributing what his church demands, TO THE CHURCH, IS NOT the same as many others.


    Remember also, Carnegie, Rockefeller (J.D.) and others of their era, built to cleanse their “image”, with blood money.


    Love the ‘toon though, Christie WAS being sincere in his concern for his people, and the efforts of FEMA under an administration, that ACTUALLY KNOWS WHAT THEY’RE DOING!!

    it was so good and refreshing to see them work Together! No animosity, just “lets take care of these people!”
    I feel more proud of them both.

    @Archimedes

    Almost all of Romney’s charitable giving has been to his church, where he is required to tithe (10%) to participate in the innermost ceremonies. Not exactly the same as “giving” to a charity. He didn’t take a salary as CEO of the Olympics or as Governor of Massachusetts (not that he needed it), but I’ve seen nothing about donating any of that to charity, or of donating his inheritance or 1 million dollars. Need some citations on that.

    Republicans are quick to grab government benefits and then deny them to others.

    @rwgate

    Romney gives 10% of his income evry year to the Church…but you think of that as membership fees as it is required. but in past years he has given between 5 and 10% additionally to other charities, but mostly dog and horse kennels. For the Olympics he did not take a salary but he use $156 million Federal dollars to prop up the games. As for other citations, good luck, because there aren’t any…

    The Red Cross also always needs blood.

    But can goods . . . no.
