Sandy: When nature takes over…

There may be an election on November 6th, but, in my opinion, it may be delayed.

Sandy is devastating and as one can observe listening to President Obama’s speeches, for the time being, he is not thinking about the election.  This storm is disastrous.  It has done considerable damage and President Obama is reacting as he should.  As Commander-in-Chief, he is focussing on a natural disaster.

He is not campaigning. Needless to say, that would be an insult to grieving Americans whose houses have been destroyed or who have lost a loved-one.  This storm is a killer.  So President Obama is too busy looking after this disaster to even think about the elections.
