FEMA and JournoLists

The toothless old media is still trying to show it has some bite. Mitt Romney, who has been critical of FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), was peppered at an Ohio campaign stop with questions about his plan for the agency from "JournoLists" types all the while with millions without electricity and their homes underwater.

Romney properly ignored the questions.

FEMA is a policy debate. If FEMA does a good job it should obviously be kept. Right? 

If FEMA doesn't do a good job and there are more effective protocols of how we handle our emergency responses we should adopt the new system. Right?

What should not be done is to discuss the future of FEMA when FEMA's administrators should be focused on dealing with Sandy's aftermath and not have to worry about defending their bureaucracy and jobs. That is commonsense, and anybody who cares about people should understand that. The "JournoLists" don't.
