Mitt Romney and disaster relief in Lowell

Esquire political columnist Charlie Pierce (whose Politics blog is well-worth reading this time of year) reminds us that the 2006 Mother’s Day flood in Lowell gave then Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney an opportunity to exercise his leadership skills in the time of natural disaster. The results weren’t pretty.

One Response to Mitt Romney and disaster relief in Lowell

  1. Joe S says:

    This is why we must reject the “you’re on your own” philosophy of Romney, et al. I think even Gov. Christie is realizing this now. And it doesn’t end with disaster relief, but also with Social Security (privatize to individual accounts), Medicare (individual vouchers) and Urban economic development.
