White House hopeful Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney goes one up on Barack Obama – he visits the hurricane-hit states ahead of Obama provably to show how much he cares for the people who have been left homeless and devastated by the natural calamity.

Immediately after accepting the nomination of the Republican Party to the post of the President of the USA, Mitt Romney has travelled to the state of Louisiana which had been hit by Hurricane Isaac.

Accompanied by Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, the 65-year-old President-hopeful went around Louisiana south of New Orleans to get a first-hand idea of the extent of devastation which had taken place.

It seems there were plans for Mitt Romney to campaign in Virginia but he opted to travel to the South on humanitarian grounds.

He probably remembered the criticism which George W Bush had to face for the sluggish response to the needs of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina seven years ago.

This has been reported in of dated 31st of August 2012.

The US President Barack Obama is scheduled to visit the affected area after making available federal funding available to people in the worst-hit areas.
