Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., accused Mitt Romney of “hypocrisy” for visiting victims of Hurricane Isaac, saying that Romney would ignore them if elected president.

“It is the height of hypocrisy for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to make a pretense of showing sympathy for the victims of Hurricane Isaac when their policies would leave those affected by this disaster stranded and on their own,” Reid said yesterday in a statement, perThe Huffington Post.

President Obama announced – after Romney announced his visit to Louisiana — that he would schedule a trip to storm-affected areas, but Reid did not accuse him of faking his display of sympathy for flood and storm victims.
