Remember when I told you Mitt Romney was going to disappear? His campaign, incredibly, is sticking to that plan. Romney hasn't addressed his support for Richard Mourdock, and now he refuses to talk about disaster relief:
Pool reporter at Romney campaign event asked 5 times if he would eliminate FEMA/how he'd handle agency. "He ignored the questions."— Ram Ramgopal (@RamCNN) October 30, 2012
A week ago, this strategy of ignoring the press was probably a good idea. Now, with one disaster and one endorsement of a pro-rape candidate on the agenda, the Romney campaign should probably take a few questions. Not holding a press conference maybe would have worked in a pre-internet age, but people have access to this information now, whether the campaign likes it or not.
