Romney to inspect Hurricane Isaac storm damage

After accepting the Republican nomination with a terrific speech Thursday night, former Governor Mitt Romney is flying to the New Orleans area Friday to inspect storm damage caused by Hurricane Isaac.

Romney will meet with Gov. Bobby Jindal and first responders and thank them for their work and see areas impacted by the storm. Romney found it important enough to make such a visit that he is skipping a previously scheduled rally with his vice-presidential running mate Paul Ryan in the battleground state of Virginia this afternoon.

Romney’s presidential-like storm damage inspection stands in sharp contrast to President Obama, who has been too busy flying around the country conducting campaign rallies in Iowa, Colorado and Virginia and has not even announced any plans to visit the storm ravaged area.
