What Choice?

It seems that Mr Romney wants to get rid of FEMA and the Federal responsibility of disaster relief. That Mitt wants to transfer the burden of recovery to each local governing body is similar to Obama's way of thinking (Obama, "Please listen to whatever state and local officials are saying. When they tell you to evacuate - you need to evacuate. ...").
But Mitt goes too far in the idea that local governments should do as much for themselves as possible.
And Mitt even thinks it would be best to privatize the onus of disaster recovery.
The thing that is wrongheaded about this idea is that the private companies would just ultimately bill the federal government for the cleanup costs - as is now the case with cleanup after a natural disaster.
But if the government had to pay market value for these services - without any oversight - many of these companies would over and double-bill the government for their work.
I could just see Halliburton KBR getting into the local (read; on American soil) cleanup business that it seems to have perfected overseas in war torn countries and making even more insiders richer in the process.
But now Mitt seems to be backing away from such silly ideas.
The Romney campaign has recently issued a statement stating that Mitt is in favor of the federal government's role is disaster relief.
What changed?
Is Mitt just a Yankee who thinks himself better than those from other races and regions?
Remember; Romney's prior remarks were made immediately after a series of tornadoes ripped through many Southern states.
Does Mitt consider the Hillbillies and Blacks in the South to be inferior and unworthy of federal assistance?

This election won't change a thing.
Just pick from the homunculi pretending that it does.
