ORLANDO, Fla. -

As Hurricane Sandy takes aim at the East Coast, the storm is already throwing a wrench in the campaign plans of both President Barack Obama and his challenger, Gov. Mitt Romney.

Obama greeted local members of the Puerto Rican community upon arrival at Orlando International Airport just before 8 p.m. Sunday, but he canceled his Monday morning appearance at the University of Central Florida.

"Due to deteriorating weather conditions in the Washington area, the president will not attend today's campaign event in Orlando. The president will return to the White House to monitor the preparations for and early response to Hurricane Sandy," spokesman Jay Carney said.

WHAT A JOKE!! The pres needs to go to DC to "monitor" a storm- but can't "monitor" Benghazi and protect our people. Yeah. Okay Freepers, especially FL Freepers, some background on this-- and how can you help? Get out the vote!!

First, recall that Eric Holder, under clintoon, in 1991 granted clemency to 16 members of two violent Puerto Rican nationalist organizations--the Macheteros and the FALN who shot up Blair House during Truman admin. Convicted terrorists serving sentences for murder. This built a bridge for him/them later to this "community" as they say. So, keeping that in mind:

Note that obamao meets Puerto Rican "community members" at the airport-- THEN boards AF 1 and goes back to DC on the same Sunday night-- no fundraiser...uh huh. In a secure area at Orl. Intl. he does this-"fundraiser". Well, he GOT the funds you can bet-and back on AF-1. Round-trip ORL-DC on the 747, at $179,750 per hour price tag, which became our nickel on his trip as "official" in his role as weather briefer in chief, having declared the disaster. We paid for this unnecessary trip. Considering the DNC has gotten $15M loans from Bank of Amer/Countrywide which taxpayers had already given them in "stimulus"-- this new money need is quite telling.

This "community" is SEIU and divided from the professional and business Puerto Rican community. Can't say the source of the money he got--but have a real good suspicion. Those who live in Cent. FL will remember the surprise the Orange County Sheriff at the time (1997 Kevin Beary Sheriff of the Year by NRA), who had gradually to learn that federal witness protection program sent Puerto Rican drug dealers/witnesses to Kissimmee and Osceola/Orange County (he was never informed by Feds)--and the attendant crime wave as these same individuals went back to their old business. A source of embarrassment for the decent professional Puerto Rican community, you can be sure. Fast forward to today-- and you see the clintons and obamaos (And Holders) are working this same circuit-- now through the purple union money laundry.

Recall Romney speaks Spanish as do his son(s), and there is a new great ad w/ President of Puerto Rico: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=DRFMZth9chg

Impressed with the organization and clean quality of the Romney campaign-- good people. Reach out Freepers- get out the vote.

BHusseinO is hiding in the bunker from the wind, but sends Clinton out in the storm. Makes perfect sense. Clinton is, after all, the expert on blow jobs...

I guess Romney should have no guilt sending a surrogate to campaign for him...

Ryan cancelled his appearance this evening in Lakeland, FL. What a shame! Shades of McNuts his curtailing his campaign to go vote FOR TARP!

At first glace, you might think the hurricane would benefit the GOP, as in prior elections, bad weather has been more “discouraging” for Dems.

But as Rahm said, never let a crisis go to waste. Not only might they file lawsuits to add more days, or weeks, to allow more voting, but if they start giving out paper ballots, there might be some great opportunities for voter fraud.

Translation: “ The president will return to the White House to monitor ESPN, drink Bud Light, and have his staff give him an update every 4 hours” spokeslut Jay Carney said”

Fixed it.

Birds of a feather, Obama & Adolf Hitler, both hiding out in the bunker!!! Obama left Central Florida for two reasons, Florida is going wildly for Romney/Ryan and Obama lost his appeal across the board. The horrible murders he allowed in Libya to our public servants is doing him in day by day. He could care less about the voters in Florida and even less about stupid college kids that would rather drink beers and snag the chicks, then vote for this low life, dirt bag, anti-American Democrat.

His rally crowds, coupled with what Joe Biden and Obama’s Black racist, wife Michelle Obama draws is pathetic. He had his chance for greatness and he blew it, massively. Not only is Obama toast, he is severly burnt toast!!! the overwhelmingly number of American voters have his “flim/flam” number!!!

AH O Malley canceled today's early voting but said he wants to re-schedule for Friday.

Its wet and windy here and I noticed a leak from the outside to the inside of my garage. The wind still occasionally pounds the house.

But power has not gone out yet. Fingers crossed. Many I know here lose power when the wind blows because of all the above ground power lines and trees.

Ryan was in Ohio, which, depending on when the events there wound up— might have been some bad flying weather. Might be.
Romney cancelled in VA, then they did joint events in Ohio Sunday and today. So maybe that was it.

Hope he rebooks.

Lakeland weather is partly cloudy and 45, which is cold for old Floridians, but nothing remarkable. Polk County is key
and keeping an eye on Hillsborough/Tampa.

RE :”May your power stay on. The coast got the worst of it.”

Thanks. It did.

Not long after I posted that the rain died down to light as did the wind gusts. The storm went north and I was thankful for it especially after seeing the wet drywall.

I was driving in it earlier but it wasnt bad because few cars were on the roads. Our King O'Malley scared most people into staying at home.

I noticed that Gov. Christie was lavishing praise on Obama for helping him out.
