Skip to comments.Obama Poised to Win on Isaac Either Way [Obamugabe plays politics with people's lives]

President Obama reviewed Isaac's projected landfall on Monday and calculated the fallout of a truncated Republican National Convention and his own campaign schedule sifting ways to maximize the advantages of governing while milking the political gains of a rival party mired in split-screen storm misery.
No adjustments were made to Obama's campaign schedule for Tuesday; stops in Ames, Iowa, and Fort Collins, Colo., remain set. A Wednesday jaunt to Charlottesville, Va., may fall prey to Obama's desire to appear presidential in the face of Isaac's landfall, though. Campaign officials said Obama was monitoring Isaac's path "hour-by-hour" and would adjust his campaign schedule as needed.

This is still a tropical storm not a Category 4 Hurricane
Won’t do any good. He’s done it too many times now. The problem Obama has is that every KNOWS he’s playing politics.
Actually he loses under any senario of anything.
“This is still a tropical storm not a Category 4 Hurricane.”
If it stays a TS, the media will credit Obama with “healing the waters”.
exactly, there will be no chance to play hero for Obama or the media looking to make him “different than Bush” on handling a big storm hitting NO.
The MEDIA has made Obama palatable for 4 years....they will cover for him forever.
Yep and I'm hoping it stays that way. Currently sitting about 80 miles east of where it is expected to land and after Katrina anything in the Gulf that fizzles is a good thing.
Obama will try to "manage" the aftermath to show how much he cares about the peeples of NOLA, but he won't be able to get much traction unless it's an absolute disater 9then he'll find out that no man can make that type thing right withoput the peeples cooperating). He must be hoping for the worst.
