Still, it will feel a bit cheap if Obama's campaign uses this in their last grasp for votes.

I think a lot of people see him as handling the hurricane the way he has because he wants votes. I guess it never crossed people's minds he's actually doing what the leader of a nation should do in a time of crisis. (Not saying you are saying this)
I think he's handling the situation quite well all things considered and I am glad he dropped the campaign bs to go back and actually work as a president instead of doing whatever it is politicians do on the campaign trail. I feel he's acting in a similar manner to Bush on 9/11 (pre-war stuff, because we can't bomb a hurricane).
I think it is rather unfortunate for Romney that he talked about getting rid of FEMA and his whole Red Cross debacle though. He really did go about this the wrong way.
Some of the people in NY are unhappy that Obama didn't tour the city. Even though it would have meant more police there many of them (in the Rockaways, Nassau and Suffolk Counties) are just as hard hit as NJ.
He's only one guy and he went to where the storm made land fall. He can't be in every place at once and run the country. I can fault Obama for a lot of things, but I can't fault him for his response to Sandy.
And are New Yorkers that absorb in their ego that they have to complain about the president not visiting their area instead of focusing on way more important things.
Well this is an odd claim to say the least....
From what claims to be the Syrian Army's Facebook account (I'm having rather large doubts about how genuine this is.
NJMP is fine. That part of New Jersey wasn't hit TOO hard. It's about an hour off the shore.
But that's the least of our worries when people are dying.
I luckily didn't get hit that hard. Only lost power for 36 hours or so. I'm thankful for that.
Now comes the clean up.
Storm naming of nor'easter is confusing! Apparently this storm has been designated the name of Winter Storm Athena.
The first F12 Berlinetta to be sold in the United States will be auctioned by Ferrari, which will donate the proceeds to the American Red Cross to support the organizations relief efforts after Hurricane Sandy, the automaker said.
The auction will be at 9 p.m. Eastern time on Nov. 17 at the Formula One United States Grand Prix in Austin, Tex. People who cannot attend the event may contact Ferrari dealers for information on how to place bids.
Here at Ferrari, we have experienced and seen the devastation that Hurricane Sandy has caused in the affected area firsthand, Marco Mattiacci, chief executive and president of Ferrari North America, said in a statement. We want to use our event next week at Formula One in Austin to give back to our local community by auctioning the F12 Berlinetta. Ferrari North Americas headquarters are in Englewood Cliffs, N.J.
The F12 Berlinetta will be available for purchase in the United States starting in the second quarter of 2013 with a base price of $315,888. But Ferrari expects the auction to bring in much more than that. The F12 Berlinetta is already in high demand, and we expect the auction to yield a significant contribution to storm relief, Mr. Mattiacci said.
I think you'll find that it's to specify which storm they're talking about.
Here comes the bill... is there any surprise that it comes loaded with nonsense and waste?
