Of course Romney did this to help his campaign. But he is also a very caring person as you can tell from his charitable contributions and deeds he has done.
What has Obama done (personally) this week to help anyone?
And I am sure this got media play in Ohio. This is the only way R&R can cut through the Obama friendly media.
And he left 'Toon on the campaign trail so they didn't even have to cancel any of his scheduled campaign stops.
And yet on Greta tonight, Republican Haley Barbour called the storm a plus for Obama, because the media was focused on nothing else. His comments, plus Republican Chris Christie's effusive praise for Obama today, and Christie's tour with Obama tomorrow (without inviting Romney), makes me think the fix is in.
