Something I can agree with Bloomberg about. The phony and contrived bashing of W over Katrina really created this absurd expectation that the president should be at the scene of a natural disaster as soon as humanly possible. Actually, if common sense ever prevailed, the president should stay as far away as possible until the first responders and victims got things reasonably stabilized.
The last thing a disaster situation needs is all the security cpmcerms and the entourage that accompanies a president. They should make their statements from afar and communicate with local and state officials, and not visit the scene until things are well settled down.
Look at it this way, Obama has to get his “feel your pain” photo op out of the way before he can begin campaigning again. And that allows Romney to go on offense again.
Lets remember why Obama is in NJ with Christi..... Bloomberg told him to take a hike. That is a pretty strong smack down to a sitting president.
I do agree, Christi could have been cordial to the president without going overboard with his comments. But hey, he shoots first, as they say.....
And if Obama was going to tour with someone... wouldn’t you rather it be a republican governor? It just further reinforces that republicans can manage their states better. And Obama can’t be critical of Christi.
So Obama gets his photo op, which he was going to anyway. Better to have him with Christi than some other slobbering dem politician.
And again, this will not sway the election.
