Call me skeptical, but in my opinion, the President is MILKING this hurricane.
I fully expect the President to make several UNNECESSARY appearances on the tube between now and Wednesday.
So he's cancelled his campaign events and replaced them with storm updates covered by all the networks. Heck...he's given more updates today than the hosts on the Weather Channel.
If I had been advising Romney, I would have told him to keep his rallies schedule today and tomorrow as planned. He's not getting the FREE "UNNECESSARY" MEDIA COVERAGE that the President is and will be getting throughout the next few days.
The difference between What Romney would have done in this same situation differently than the President is like night and day. Romney would not have made his efforts in storm preparation, ALL ABOUT HIM...LIKE PRESIDENT OBAMA IS. Romney would have done all that would need to be done, BEHIND THE SCENES...OUT OF SIGHT. UNLIKE Obama, he's not one to toot his own horn.
These appearances by the President are NOTHING MORE than an effort to boost his favorability numbers with the the voters in the lead up to next week.
Hey Mr. President...where were all your weather event appearances during other weather events over the past 4 years?
It's to bad you weren't this available and easy to find during the gulf oil spill. But then again, there was no re-election approaching at that time as there is now....was there?
