Not wishing to capitalize or politicize tragedy but I'm certainly not the first one to tie Sandy to the election and it might be that Northeast voters who are usually too busy to listen to talk radio or too dumbed down by cable tv news to understand why stories like Benghazi and Fast & Furious are important might inadvertently get an education they weren't expecting while they huddle around their radios for updates on road conditions, school closings and emergency updates since radio will be their only form of mass media communication for a few days.

And just before the election too! Could be a nice little miracle for Mitt. Stay tuned...

Funny how, in a crisis, so many have only one major form of mass communication left and it just happens to be the only one dominated by conservatives! He does move in mysterious ways!

Hurricane or no hurricane Mitt would win, IMO. No effect.

Well, a hurricane is after all an act of God. Why would we presume that God shouldn’t have a vote...

If we are spared another term of Obama, it will be by God’s grace alone. Hopefully, given the opportunity, we will not fall quickly asleep.

Dunno, but with his long-standing policies of infanticide, dissing Israel / Jews, and gay marriage agenda, Satan has definitely sided with Obamanation.

Since Romney isn’t a Christian I’d guess the Christian God hasn’t “sided” with him.

God may still favor America, I pray for it anyway.

I have to imagine all this is going to suppress voter turnout - of all voters. It is probably going to be just too hard for some to get to the polls.

Did God favor Obama in 2008?

Pharaoh, Ahab, Herod, Nero - Psalm 2 is what ultimately prevails over all of them.

I think if anything this is going to help Obama

The media is going to try to make this storm out to be worse than Katrina and they are going to portray Obama as a fearless decisive leader.

I think it will be a wash. Obama voters are younger and poorer. Romney voters are older and maybe not as spry.

Has God Sided With Mitt Romney? Romney is a faithful Mormon, so I’d say the answer is yes. And if you ask me, God has been hedging up the way for Obama and opening doors for Mitt for a while now. If Romney stays true to his faith he’ll wind up being one of the greatest presidents.

“Since Romney isn’t a Christian I’d guess the Christian God hasn’t ‘sided’ with him.”

Are you one of those who think that there is a God for Christians, a God for someone else and still another God for others? Sounds strange to me. I always thought there was only one God.

Please do not use my well reasoned response to attack Romney. Attack only my response to the issue that you identified a Christian God as apparently some other identity other than a God for all of his children.

And Obama is going to milk this all the way to Election Day with announcements, manufactured dynamic images during on-site appearances and most of all a major change in subject. Libya won't see the front page again until after Nov. 6. For now, he's going to benefit.. Americans attach themselves to their president in a time of crisis. The only question is how much.

I agree. This hurricane is a gift to 0bama, right before the election. He'll emerge as a hero and will get the added bonus of claiming 'voters were disenfranchised' by power outages or transportation difficulties resulting from the hurricane. I would think that if God was on Mitt's side, this hurricane would not have happened.

The one point to be made though is, WHO are the motivated voters? No matter what, Mitt wins that one and we will vote NO MATTER WHAT (If there's an election, that is. LOL!.. This ain't over yet!)

Cracks me up to hear Shep Smith say 'Fire Island'. Isn't that a gay bar in California?? LOL

If God is siding with Romney, this hurricane has nothing to do with it. The storm could supress more Republican votes than dem. Obama’s going to have the media fawn all over him for his “expert handling” of the crisis, and it gives the media an excuse to ignore Benghazi.

Wake up call for the Rats & blue states. Their convention threw God out of their platform & played games with his Holy Name.

These sodomite baby killers should be on their knees repenting for the way that they live. Bad storms have happened in many states with very sad results.....but this is the worst storm ever experienced in the the U.S.A. and to me it's a sign of the retribution for the way things have been going in our country.

Let this storm put the fear of God into our country to save ua.

No I’m one of those who thinks there is one God who created everything, some people worship this God. Other people have invented false Gods who they choose to worship. At least this is what Gods Word tells us.

I wasn’t planning to attack Romney, he’s the best of two poor choices. I won’t even attack you or your ignorance.

God is only your God if you’ve accepted him. Its called free will which he also gave us.

Schools and city buildings will get high priority for restoring electrical service. No way they're still down by next Tuesday. Some houses may still be dark but the necessary places ought to be back on before then. (Of course some may double as shelters - that could be another problem).

No. Just as God didn't side with "democrats" when a conservative area like Joplin was destroyed by a tornado. This is just nature.

God cares about our morals as people, not who the president is.

As the local morning ‘radio gawds’ pronounce:
“You put THAT on the radio, and SOMEBODY’s gonna listen to it!”

Gee, I’ve been through the original “Where were you when the lights went out?”, on a military base on Cape Cod. I’ve been through a few hurricanes, ice storms, blizzards, and just plain boredom. How did I manage?? RADIO!!

Sure, there has been the development of the television/cable broadcasts through the years, but RADIO challenges you in a different manner. How? All that you hear, in news, in stories or plays (old time radio is the best), has to be interpreted by that thing between your ears. They can’t spoon feed you on radio, as much.

So, all those folks in the NorthEast, and I’ve lived there a year or two, have to get used to deciphering all that stuff that they are NOT hearing on TV. The only stations that are not conservative, are those pesky 9am to 3pm classical music stations, that pass along the NPR pablum.

For those to know, a Grundig radio still works best. I can use ‘D’ or “AA” batts in mine. (Watch out for that — some of the newer models are “D” size HOGS (more than a 4 cell Maglite can hold), and NOT interchangeable with “AA” batts.
Yes, you get a power adapter, but with power fluctuations, it is winter now, just keep batts on hand. The signal will be cleaner with no extra ‘noise’ to hear.

I use my radios to listen to Rush every day. When I get up in the dark of morning, I use a little “AAA” batt set, with headphones to listen to Walton and Johnson (They are a hoot, and not at all for Obama).

Yes, the folks affected by the storm named Sandy will discover what radios can do. I’ve been a radiohead, eight transistors and counting, since the days of “Cousin Brucie”, from NYC. Sure, I have the TV/cable, the computer internet with YouTube and Live365 Internet radio, but it’s that boxy thing with the knobs on it, the PVC T-antenna clipped on for shortwave reception, that two-buck T-antenna we used to get with our $200 stereo receiver plugged in the back, that little needle thingie that tells me when I have the best reception, my five feet of #22 gauge ground wire trailing off and tied in a knot, and that sound of a human voice, challenging me to envision, as I interpret it, what they are talking about, that is Freedom to me, as long as I have batteries to feed it.
