"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Mitt Romney recently took a trip to Louisiana to assess hurricane and flood ravaged areas, and to draw attention to the situation, possibly stirring people and organizations to help those in need. During the course of his visit, Romney encountered a woman who had lost her home in the flooding. Jodie Chiarello, according to a joint report from the Huffington Post and Associated Press, gave this account of her conversation with Romney:
“He just told me to, um, there’s assistance out there,” Chiarello said of her conversation with Romney. “He said, go home and call 211.” That’s a public service number offered in many states.
Aside from some other comments on her own personal situation, and the flooding in the city itself, the report offered no other statements from Ms. Chiarello in regards to Mitt Romney. Every major liberal website has run with the piece, stating essentially that a victim of the flooding had approached Romney, and he coldly responded “go home and call 211”. —
But the quote has been taken grossly out of context, and the media reports have selectively edited some significantly positive comments from the very same woman.
“He said that he was going to do the best that he could for us.” Chiarello, a Republican who declined to say who she was voting for, said she was pleased Romney visited to be “supportive.”
“He’s good, he’ll do the best for us, he has our best interests at heart,” she said of the candidate, adding that he was different than she’d expected.
“I thought he’d be more like a politician, but it was more understanding and caring,” she said. “He was caring.”
Romney told the women that FEMA could point them in the direction of shelters.
Not exactly a bad guy, eh? What’s worse, the original reporting of these quotes from Chiarello by the Huffington Post casts some doubt over their accuracy. Read more: here
