Uncle Mitt where are you?

Recently, Mitt Romney broke up and told a crowd about his niece and her problems after her husband was deployed.  Here is an excerpt from his speech: “But she now had to live on a much lower income. National Guard salaries aren't as high as they were in his law firm. Now she's in this home and the outside of her is a whole dirt yard. No grass or anything yet, just stones and dirt. And under the neighborhood association where they have this home, you got a year from the time you buy your home till the landscaping supposed to be in.
Well, she's a little bit concerned cause that time period is coming up. She doesn't have the money to do the landscaping, to pay for it. She's got a little girl that is getting various tutoring classes and speaking therapy. She wonders what's going to happen. She's concerned.
One morning, she comes outside and there are her neighbors all picking up the rocks out of her yard, raking the dirt. They put in a sprinkler system. They laid down sod. They even build a swing set for her daughter. This is the America that I love. [Here's where he got teary and paused for a second.]
This is a great people. We can do anything. We can achieve anything.”
This is Mitt’s niece and he can’t make a call and spend a few of his zillion dollars to help out with some sod for his niece.  People if he won’t help his family what are earth is he going to do for you!
