Mitt Romney’s Guide To Flood Management

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Instead of giving you "money" we shall give you this nice round of applause!As Click & Clack will tell you, it’s the stingy man who ends up paying most, and apparently it’s as true of governing as car repairs! And apparently also, Mitt Romney, as governor of Massachusetts, was quite the Scrooge when it came to building levees and other flood control for his state! Here is a nice find from our friends at Slog:

In the spring of 2004, Peabody, Mass., got drenched with rain, which flooded the downtown area. After the storm, then-Gov. Mitt Romney asked President George W. Bush to declare Essex, Middlesex and Suffolk Counties federal disaster areas, according to the Boston Globe.

That fall, the state legislature proposed spending $5.7 million on a flood prevention project to protect against future floods. Those funds would be matched by $22 million in federal money.

Romney vetoed it.

Haha, you guys are never gonna guess what happened just two years later, in 1996 2006. Go ahead, try. You’ll never … oh. Yeah, that was it.

From Esquire, digging up an old opinion piece from the (conservative) Lowell Sun:

We find it inconceivable that Gov. Mitt Romney claims the state can do nothing to help those residents still struggling to rebuild homes and businesses after the May flood. Massachusetts is sitting on millions in unspent emergency funds from Hurricane Katrina and more than $1 billion in cash reserves, yet Romney has failed to even respond to the Lowell delegation’s requests to discuss additional aid for victims. The governor’s spokesman — since Romney can’t be bothered to comment now that the photo opportunities have dried up even though some residents’ basements haven’t — said the state will not consider spending its own money for flood victims until it’s clear how much cash the federal government will give.

My, it almost seems as if Miffed Romney thought those who lost their homes and businesses should stop being “victims” and mooching off the government and take some personal responsibility for their lives!

So to recap: there was a bunch of flooding, and the Democratic lege with which Romney was so “bipartisan” approved a bill meant to prevent future flooding. Romney vetoed it (as he had more than 800 other Democratic measures, 700 of which were then overridden). Then, two years later, a bunch of places flooded. And then, despite sitting on a billion in Katrina money and other cash reserves, Gov. Romney declined to provide aid to the affected citizens until he could see how much the feds would give. Then in the GOP primary debates he said the feds should send FEMA responsibilities back to the states. Then five people tried to ask him about it this morning and he ran away.

“Mr. Manager” Mitt Romney does not seem to be very good at this whole Mr. Managing thing.

Is Lowell a mostly (D) neighborhood?

Oh, I should be so ashamed of myself for daring to politicize such a tragic disaster. I'm one of those awful, nasty liberals.

Sean O October 30, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Lowell has a huge immigrant population, and has for the last… 200 years or so. It really is one of the great immigrant cities in the entire country: Greek, Cambodian, Irish, French Canadian, Hispanic, German and pretty much any other ethnicity you can think of.

There was a time when Lowell's textile mills had more looms than the entire Southern US. It's also the home of Paul and Niki Tsongas, Massachusetts Democratic royalty.

MittBorg October 30, 2012 at 3:19 pm

Oh, look, it IS a mostly (B) neighbourhood. Well, (B) and honorary (B).

122%, according to Fox News.

MittBorg October 30, 2012 at 6:38 pm

I'm hearing good things from TX tweeps. The Castros are having a huge impact on their city, and Austin is, as always, reliably blue, but I do believe that many Texans are getting pretty fucking fed up with their Republican overlords, and the Hispanic vote is *almost* at the tipping point, so it might be sooner than 8 years.

Meanwhile, what is Mitt doing? He's running "flood events" where attendees are FORCED TO WATCH HIS ADS.

imissopus October 30, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Probably for taking in and resettling refugees. I think quite a few states got money for that as well. Whatever money they didn't use for that purpose they were probably free to hold onto.

Callyson October 30, 2012 at 2:27 pm

Ah, that makes sense–I was wondering how the hell Katrina money made it so far from New Orleans.

Well played, Lowell-Sun writer from the 1990s! Oh, Becca I think also too, "two years later" would be 2006… Still, nice gem to dig up and share. And there's a lot about the mid-1990s I still miss, too.

Pragmatist2 October 30, 2012 at 2:14 pm

Mitt views this as a simple matter: Did God build a levee around Israel after THE Flood? No. And things have worked out just fine there for 6000 years.

SexySmurf October 30, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Then five people tried to ask him about it this morning and he ran away.

If I didn't live on earth, I'd want a Romney presidency just to see how badly he'd fuck everything up.

Also King County finally got around to verifying the signature on my ballot (looks like Roseanne is getting at least one vote). Took awhile because voter turnout in KC is approaching 90% which means come Nov. 7th us Warshingtonians will be able to smoke a bone at our gay weddings.

SmutBoffin October 30, 2012 at 2:32 pm

Jesus, the only real "skill" Mitt seems to have is to wait until something (a company, a state, a campaign) gets to some high level of fuckeduppedness, swoop in and declare himself the smart guy with a solution, then do jack shit, then get paid, then claim you did everything right 10 years in the future when people note you didn't do jack shit.

SorosBot October 30, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Remember how, in 2000, many people kept blasting that Al Gore must be the worst candidate ever for losing Tennessee, despite the fact that it's a right-wing state no Democrat can now win at the Presidential level? After the election it became a special favorite for Nader apologists to distract from how they were responsible for Bush's election. It's so strange that no one is saying the the same thing about Mittens getting crushed in Massachusetts, almost as if there is some kind of double standard in the media.

snowpointsecret October 30, 2012 at 2:35 pm

It probably had something to do with Clinton/Gore winning Tennessee in both 1992 and 1996.

3) He's going to keep the war in Afghanistan going (see 1).
4) He's going to cut taxes for the other members of his socioeconomic class because…
5) He's going to eliminate every government assistance program based on the need to pay for 1-4, above.

Ruhe October 30, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Does anyone else think it's possible that, all bogus ideology aside, the reason Mitt didn't want to spend that money was that it was just such a big, beautiful pile of dough. Maybe he was thinking "man, look at that sweet pile of cash, all fresh and uncommitted, stacked in neat bundles. Hey guys, I have an idea! Let's not spend it. Let's just let it sit there so we can come back and look at it once in a while. Whadda ya think?"

He probably had trouble being the first one to get into a fresh jar of peanut butter as a kid too. Or maybe he'd run around the house with a newly opened tub of margarine letting everyone see the cute little pig tail, only to later weep when his mother ruined the delectable swirl of oleo for no better reason than to "cook" with it. He probably hated her for that and now we're all about to pay the price.

"Bipartisan" my flaming ass. In Mass., the fucker vetoed just about every single piece of legislation put on his desk, and the Dems in the legislature overrode him every time. We're talking hundreds of bills and hundreds of vetos. As a governor he was utterly useless, and whatever was accomplished during his term was accomplished in spite of his veto.

And yes, I'm doing my best to make Mitt's life miserable on Twitter. It's great being able to be RLY mean to the deserving. Twitter seems to appreciate my efforts, too!

I react badly to pretty much everything except morphine, dilaudid, and percocet, and all three are a very bad idea for various reasons. Last time I had to get off the percocet, it actually took some effort. I don't like that.

Hi MittBorg – sorry to hear about your pain. To ease it I'll gladly convert unused m, d or p to cash. If that would ease your pain.

Nah, it's OK, I just keep drinking till I pass out. :)
It's just one of the unavoidable side-effects of age, I think. Thanks for the kind thoughts.

I'll help you carry them.

How about we make a deal MittBorg, and we each take a hammer and take turns smashing his gonads?
