Sandy swoops in to save Obama [Superstorm shifts focus from Benghazi]
Chicago Tribune ^ | October 31, 2012 | John Kass

....But the most important thing superstorm Sandy has done is rescue Obama from Benghazi, where four Americans, including a U.S. ambassador, were killed by terrorists.

Notice Obama isn't being asked whether aid was denied in Benghazi. Instead, he's invited to demonstrate to voters how much aid he's going to bring to the Northeast, as he becomes the great Federal Daddy to storm-tossed battleground states............

The president appeared Tuesday at a news conference at the Red Cross headquarters in Washington, showing himself to be a man of resolve in crisis. He was ostentatiously not campaigning. Rather, he was doing what I'd call "presidencing."

"My instructions to the federal agents has been, 'Do not figure out why we can't do something. I want you to figure out how we do something,'" Obama said.

"I want you to cut through red tape, I want you to cut through bureaucracy; there's no excuse for inaction at this point. I want every agency to lean forward and to make sure we are getting the resources where they're needed as quickly as possible."

Who wrote that — Axelrod?

No excuse for inaction? Don't figure out why something can't be done, just do it already? A man of action and command? That's Obama. This week.

Yet a few weeks ago, there was a different Obama, the Obama of Sept. 11, the Obama of Benghazi, when Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed by terrorists. Almost as depressing as reports of their deaths was the fact that no military help arrived in a firefight that lasted more than six hours.

Sorry about the duplicate quote at the bottom. I meant to quote this next part....

“Was the president watching it all in the White House situation room? We don’t know. Jay Leno didn’t ask him, neither did David Letterman, nor the ladies of “The View” or music journalists on MTV. These are the places he goes so as to get big hugs, not hard questions, as President Eye-Candy.”

The Zero is covering up his malfeasance (if not criminal acts) in his handling of Benghazi. The media know it, and they assist in every way possible. I’m just surprised that this report comes from the Chicago Tribune!

Sandy is a crippling blow to Romney’s hopes. No way to sugarcoat it. Enough Americans are stupid enough to be fooled by it to make the difference. We are witnessing the Dominion of Satan at work before our very eyes.
