In a GOP primary debate last year , Mitt Romney promoted the idea of doing away with the emergency management or at least trimming the spending on it considerably.
Now, as an aftermath of hurricane Sandy, Romney campaign says he would not abolish FEMA. His campaign quickly clarified that Romney's emergency management response would include FEMA.
However, Mitt Romney has vehemently and repeatedly refused to answer questions about how he would handle the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
This has garnered him severe lash back.
Hear that? It's a pin dropping. Someone must have just asked Romney about his position is on FEMA. #sandy— DC Debbie (@DCdebbie) October 31, 2012
This is not the first time Romney has either changed or softened his stance on something. Just weeks ago, he was quick enough to soften his stance on abortion. Whatever Romney’s intentions or strategies may be, it gives the impression that he’ll say anything to get elected. That certainly doesn’t go well with him!
