W. Mitt Romney disguised an Ohio campaign rally as a collection of canned food for the Red Cross yesterday. Too bad somebody on his staff didn’t find the time to check the Red Cross website

Unfortunately, due to logistical constraints the Red Cross does not accept or solicit individual donations or collections of items. Items such as collected food, used clothing and shoes must be sorted, cleaned, repackaged and transported which impedes the valuable resources of money, time, and personnel.

Meanwhile, President Obama has been busy directing the federal response to Super Storm Sandy. Today, he will join New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) in touring some of the damage suffered by the citizens of that state.
