Mitt Romney Can't Hear Your Questions About FEMA Because He's Sticking His Fingers In His Ears and Going "Nyah-Nyah-Nyah-Nyah-Nyah"

Sure, Romney has been ignoring questions about FEMA—but now this is getting ridiculous. The Huffington Post is running quotes from the Romney pool report:

TV pool asked Romney at least five times whether he would eliminate FEMA as president/what he would do with FEMA. He ignored the qs but they are audible on cam. The music stopped at points and the qs would have been audible to him.

A follow-up report noted the specific questions Romney ignored, as he was collecting hurricane supplies following his event:

"Gov are you going to eliminate FEMA?" a print pooler shouted, receiving no response.

Wires reporters asked more questions about FEMA that were ignored.

Romney kept coming over near pool to pick up more water. He ignored these questions:

"Gov are you going to see some storm damage?"

"Gov has [New Jersey Gov.] Chris Christie invited you to come survey storm damage?"

"Gov you've been asked 14 times, why are you refusing to answer the question?"

Romney is getting so silent, I'm starting to suspect he might be a ninja.
