He STILL doesnt get it.......

Mitt Romney: Hurricane Sandy 'Didn't Come At The Right Time'

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said Hurricane Sandy -- a major storm that pummeled the East Coast in October 2012, just before Election Day -- "didn't come at the right time."

"I can tell you the hurricane didn't come at the right time," Romney told Fox News' Neil Cavuto on Friday.

Sandy caused 159 deaths and between $50 and $100 billion in damage. After the storm hit, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) and President Barack Obama formed an infamous bipartisan bond, with the two working on recovery efforts and touring the storm's wreckage together in the days just before the election.

According to Romney's wife Ann, the couple have no hard feelings toward Christie for working with Obama so close to the election.

"Chris is a great guy, and it's all good," Romney said on "CBS This Morning" in May. "We have no bitterness toward anyone."

The former GOP hopeful made similar comments about Hurricane Sandy earlier this week in an interview with CNN.

"I wish the hurricane hadnít have happened when it did, because it gave the President a chance to be presidential, and to be out showing sympathy for folks," Romney said. "Thatís one of the advantages of incumbency.Ē

So let me get this straight....If Sandy had occurred AFTER the election killing 156 people, injuring hundreds of others and causing massive damage it would have been okay cause he MIGHT have been President????

1. If anything, Sandy cost Obama thousands of votes

because it hit in the liberal northeast corridor and people who are just a little preoccupied with finding shelter and drinking water and food are going to be just a little less likely to struggle through all the wreckage to find a polling booth.

Mittens: out of touch then, out of touch now, and thank goodness enough of the US population spotted it in time to keep him out of power.

2. What an insensitive clod. Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Andrea today is bringing 4 ro 6 inches of rain

 

and there are flood alerts for all the areas in NY/NJ that normally flood.

And Mitt is complaining about the timing???

If it were later in the season, today's storm would be major.

I seriously think Mitt is so out of there, he is going to try again in 2016
