President Obama offered thoughts and prayers Tuesday for all those who have been affected by Sandy. He also offered something more tangible: the full resources of the federal government....
For Obama, the federal government is a critical vehicle for that kind of help. Republicans put more faith in local government, and even voluntary efforts.
On Tuesday in Ohio, Mitt Romney sponsored a canned food drive for storm victims and told a parable about the virtue of individual action. When he was in high school, Romney said, a small group of students managed the big task of cleaning up a trash-strewn football field, after each student was given responsibility for scouring one small section.

President Obama will continue to make the case for an active federal role Wednesday, not at a campaign rally, but by touring hard-hit New Jersey.
For those who want to give this guy the benefit of the dought, don’t! Once again you are being taken for the fool This is a crisis, maybe not generated like Biden mentioned early in the 2008 campaign but a crisis just the same to be used for thier advantage. Even if they are not desparate which the seem to be they are very much the ghouls where any opportunity falls into “by any means necessary”
I heard some liberal at work, who likes to pretend he is “objective” say that this Sandy crap has finally helped him decide who he is gonna vote for—Obama! After Chris Christie praised Obama, then suddenly this clown saw that the GOVERNMENT RESPONSE by Obama was awesome!
Now I have watched this numbskull for several years, I believe he was going to vote for the Kenyan anyway. But he has been using this as a talking point to converse with one of the black guys at work, you know, to make him more acceptable to the black guy.
I despise those kinds of phonies and suck-ups. Who do they think they’re fooling? Not even the people they suck-up to, they despise them too, even though they may be happy to accept the sucking-up.
Oh, the guy is hilarious. He likes to pose as an intellectual; we are in a workplace where most of us have college degrees...and he does not, so he tries to “sound” educated....(for the record, I readily admit one doesn’t HAVE to have a degree to be intelligent....it is just that THIS guy seems to be intimidated by his lack of one.)

Kind of like the participants on the Judge shows (which by the way are satuarated with D type ads) where the participants make such ‘educated’ statements as:
“We was verbally conversating......etc....”
“He didn’t borrow me any money, he give it to me”
“I lended him the money”
Judy will at least come down on the deadbeats, when an unmarried mother says she is a ‘single mom’, if NO father is or has never been involved, she (J) will tell them ‘that isn’t our problem - we pay for it so I guess that makes it our problem’.
GET A JOB is one of her favorites...Byrd and I are getting tired of supporting you.....
BTW Byrd’s facial expressions are worth the price of admission, somewhat arrogant, but mostly appropriate.
I had to quit watching most of them as they are turning into Maury/Springer type ‘slugfests’
