What Does Mitt Think Providing For The General Welfare Is?
"It's part of the American spirit, the American way, to give to people in need," Romney told supporters in Kettering before they lined up to hand him bags of canned food for storm victims.
And you know one way we've organized to do that? Through an entity with excellent economies of scale: government. Dumbass.

The General Welfare is what those diva in their caddies use to haul their 18 general welfare babies around to the store to get their food stamp groceries, ciggies and wine, isn't it? /Winger
The Commonweal isn't part of Randian philosophy, but the photo op is, apparently.

Mittens collected canned food, which is what Red Cross quite rightly told people NOT to give, because initial cost, storage and delivery make it a lot less efficient in emergency circumstances than giving money to Red Cross and allowing them to ply their much better-developed methods of purchasing food and getting it to people in trouble. In the distant past, I volunteered at a food bank for a while, and believe me, "efficient" is not the word that comes to mind.
But I suppose Mr. Rmoney can't afford to be seen writing a big check right now...
