So the Romney campaign allegedly bought $5,000 worth of food and supplies at Walmart to give to Romney supporters to "donate" to the campaign for a photo op:
Empty-handed supporters pled for entrance, with one woman asking, “What if we dropped off our donations up front?”
The volunteer gestured toward a pile of groceries conveniently stacked near the candidate. “Just grab something,” he said.
Two teenage boys retrieved a jar of peanut butter each, and got in line. When it was their turn, they handed their “donations” to Romney. He took them, smiled, and offered an earnest “Thank you.”
The Red Cross accepted the Romney campaign's donation, but they politely pointed out that donating goods is not the best way to help with disaster relief; they prefer donations of money or blood.
In Hudson, the packing was proceeding too quickly, and the supporters wearing red "Team Wisconsin" t-shirts were given the order to slow down and then to stop to be sure there were still goods to be packed when Ryan entered.
One by one the boxes were filled and loaded into a waiting U-Haul, and then they stopped to wait for the candidate.
Who cares if people are in need? The important thing is that we need some pictures of Paul Ryan putting boxes on a truck!
