    Sandy may be the Albatross for Obama

    He isn't looking so presidential over hurricane Sandy anymore.

    There was that video of him watching the storm unfold from the safety of the situation room, and the New Jersey photo op with the diet challenged governor there, but since?

    The fallout is almost as bad from Sandy as it was from Katrina....and now, The One is taking some heat at a time when he needs every fucking vite he can get.




    MENTOR, Ohio — Facing questions about his campaigning for re-election while millions of Americans still await government relief efforts from superstorm Sandy, President Obama said Saturday that one of the disaster’s positive results was “leaders of different political parties working together to fix what’s broken.”
    “It’s a spirit that says, ‘We’re all in this together,’ ” Mr. Obama told about 4,000 supporters in a high-school gym in northeast Ohio. “We rise and fall as one nation and one people.”

    The president then pivoted quickly to his partisan stump speech, attacking Republican rival Mitt Romney for pursuing “top-down economics” for the wealthy and billing himself as the true agent of change in the election on Tuesday.

    Now there is something new [we sooo need a sarcasm font]

    What's amusing is he was hit on it in Ohio while the floods, water shortages, gas rationing and food shortages ravage the coastal areas....

    This could make the difference.

    The same was said about Bengazi.

    I don't think any of them offer any real impact on the undecided, just political fodder for rock throwing.

    Benghazi is not a borough in New York. If things go straight to hell there, it's going to reflect on President Not Optimal.

    Well, it's a little early to equate this storm and FEMA's response to the Katrina disaster, i think. But i have a home smack in the middle of Long Beach Island, which took the full fury of Hurricane Sandy. We will not be allowed onto the island until notified to even make some assessment of personal damage. The Nor'easter expected along the coast this coming wednesday will affect schedules, and back it all up even further. That said, we have been getting calls daily from FEMA headquarters giving us updates and current status on utilities, road conditions, safety hazards, etc. One call even warned homeowners to watch for, yes, snakes, as they survey their properties. So far, it looks to me like FEMA's on this pretty good. At least that's what i'm seeing.

    I don't see this as any impact on tuesday's election.

    If there were any common sense left on The Isle, the government would equip all computers with breathalizers.

    This is different. Benghazi happened "over there". Hurricane Sandy happened here.

    Sandy will just be another albatross on the necklace of them he's wearing right now. Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Solyndra and the Green Energy bankruptcies, 43 straight months of 8 percent or higher unemployment, more than 23 million Americans struggling to find work, 47 million Americans on food stamps, our national debt over $16 trillion following the President’s four $1-trillion-plus annual budget deficits, and an anemic 1.7 percent in second quarter GDP growth, the Home Affordable Refinance Program that was supposed to help 4 million but actually resulted in 390,000, support for the arab spring spending a billion dollars to help the folks who just killed 4 Americans. He'll wear all that like a millstone around his neck going for a swim.

    I wonder if not having gas, water, and other essentials will keep people from the polls.

    Obama is dependent on turning out his core support ....
