What sucks about this situation is Obama gets +unfiltered image-making as a “resolute leader,” and there’s nothing Romney can do to counter it.
Romney is asking people to give to help those affected by this storm and even taking in items to help those in need. He is doing his almsgiving in private, and God will reward him openly.
What it does is compares his response to this easy task of simply dispensing money to states that need it to his response to the Libya situation. Any president would monitor a hurricane-big deal. It’s how you handle the hard stuff that counts and BO was a total failure.
